Almost 50 days ago, Oregon Ducks head coach Dan Lanning sparked a flame that is yet to die down.
In fact, that flame has only gotten bigger over the past couple of months.
At Oregon’s annual media day, Lanning was asked about his reaction to the Colorado Buffaloes’ recent departure from the Pac-12 landing them in the Big-12 Conference.

On Monday night at his weekly press conference, he once again was given an opportunity to talk about Deion Sanders and the Buffaloes. With Colorado coming to town for a meeting of top-20 teams on Saturday, it should be a week full of entertaining quotes and bulletin board material.
Here’s what Lanning had to say about Sanders and the Buffs on Monday night:

I know our players are really pumped to get out there. I think Coach Sanders has done a great job obviously this team he’s created a lot of momentum and they’ve done phenomenally in their first three games. So it’s been a fun one for us.

Dan Lanning: I think there’s a lot of great teams in this conference. And I think that’s really evident with how they’ve performed outside of the conference. We kind of talked to our players about hey, preseason over. You’ve been playing opposing conferences, other teams, but now this is when we get into the meat and potatoes of what really matters for us…
