Three things to remember following Colorado's loss against Washington State

On their way to a 56-14 loss against Washington State on Friday night, the Colorado Buffaloes fell behind fast and never recovered.  

Deion Sanders' squad dropped a fifth straight game in Pullman, thereby eliminating them from postseason contention.  

Here are three lessons to be learned from the Buffs' devastating defeat.Shedeur Sanders was hit on a strip sack in the first quarter, and the Colorado Buffaloes quarterback was clearly in agony and needed assistance getting up.  

He was replaced twice by backup quarterback Ryan Staub. With Sanders on the sideline, it was a brave effort that culminated in another setback for Sanders and the Buffs.  

With the offensive line surrendering over 100 yards every game, it was unavoidable.Sanders tried his hardest to be there, but it wasn't meant to be for me. For the Buffs, Staub and third-string quarterback Gavin Kuld finished the game. 

We'll see what happens this week, with the Rumble in the Rockies game against Utah practically meaningless. If Coach Prime was looking ahead, it's time to call it quits. 

There's no point in putting yourself in danger of serious injury. A fifth straight loss eliminates Colorado from postseason contention. While no one anticipated the Buffs to play in a bowl game, they went further than expected and had multiple chances with four one-score losses down the line. 

– A few stops in Stanford's loss or keeping up with USC, paired with a field goal against Arizona, would have made the difference for Sanders and the Buffs. It's only three examples, but they were crucial to CU's season.  –
