LAS VEGAS — You say tomato, I say tomato. You say Shedeur, I say Shilo.

You say “one” and I say “Hunter”.

You say no, I say Shurmur.

Neither one nor the other, Hunter, Shurmur.

Let’s assume the whole season was successful.

The interview with Shedeur Sanders and Shilo Sanders at Wednesday’s Big 12 media day was equal parts informative and entertaining. They’re definitely brothers, even if Shilo made them look more like the Wayans.

The original idea for this column was simple: Shedeur’s run to All-American status, to the Heisman Trophy, and to the top of the NFL Draft.

He approached the desk wearing a black CU sweatshirt, a frozen “Legendary” chain hanging from his neck. It might have been the only thing at Allegiant Field brighter than his future.

No CU quarterback has been as hyped since Kordell Stewart. No Buffs quarterback has been drafted since Koy Detmer in the seventh round in 1997.

Shedeur is a huge improvement over his predecessors, which is a big reason why optimists believe the Buffs will pull off a positive outcome.

Given his talent, should Big 12 fans ask for his autograph or blessing?
