Coach Prime was suggesting Colorado imitate some of the swag and culture often seen at HBCUs such as Jackson State during and after games.
“At HBCUs, it’s kind of traditional that the bands kind of coincides,” Sanders said in a YouTube video posted by Well Off Media. “I know it’s a difference, but it don’t have to be. We like one big happy family.”
“We’re probably gonna have a new theme song," Sanders said, "that I want you guys to get and it’s not hard. And I think you can knock it out of the park.”
“It’ll take it to a whole new level when the band is able to execute it," Sanders said. "That’s going to be good. Really, really good.”
