There’s a lot of excitement in Boulder to see what Coach Prime’s offensive coordinator Sean Lewis is going to cook up in the new up tempo Colorado offense. There will be no finer test than last year’s national runner up TCU in Fort Worth on September 2. But don’t expect any of that excitement to spill over into the day to day tasks of Lewis.
“So I’m going to remain stoic and, you know, treat each day like it. So that again, when the kids look to us as a staff, right, we have to exude that standard to them because if we change come game day or we change now because it’s game week and the kids are going to look at us like, oh, what we’ve been talking about? We’re going to be us and I’m going to be me,” Lewis said.
But there’s still work to be done with less than two weeks remaining until the big debut in Fort Worth. Just how fast will this Shedeur Sanders led offense be? The answer may be as fast as the offensive line allows.
“I love their approach. I love the way that they’re going, but you really don’t know what you have until you’re tested it, until you’re in the line of fire. But I love the way that they are seeing the game through the same set of eyes. The five guys that we’ve settled in on, they do a great job communicating, right? And so them seeing it through the same set of eyes, the fronts, the changes, the backers moving and everything in the way that Shedeur communicates with them. So they’re on the same page and that allows us to to play fast and to do what we need to do,” said Lewis.
With eleven days to go before the season opener, the math theory in Boulder says there is still time for lots of improvement. Lewis discussed that analyzing scrimmage one versus scrimmage two.
“I believe in incremental gains and coach always talks about two percent improvement. And, you know, we have a belief of improving and competing each and every single day and I saw those things. There were things that we obviously need to clean up and there were some really, really good stuff as well. But, you know, the things that we can control, that’s our number one factor in terms of how we’re going to win. Great teams don’t beat themselves.”
