New admission rules could spark 'Prime Time' at Colorado

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) As much as facilities, Folsom Field or the allure of trying to pull off a seemingly impossible rebuild, it was likely the fine print that brought Deion Sanders to Colorado.

College football's most electric coaching candidate, the Hall of Fame player now known as "Coach Prime," almost certainly wouldn't have taken his talents to Boulder without a thorough review and rewriting of admissions rules at Colorado, an area in which the Buffs struggled to adapt to the new realities of the transfer portal.

In the new landscape of college football, players can move from school to school via the portal without having to sit out one season. The best of the best - see, Georgia, which wrapped up its second straight national title Monday night - have been among the elite in navigating the new rules. Because of its stringent admissions and transfer rules, Colorado had trouble getting in on that game.
