Colorado football running back Dylan Edwards shared the Buffs locker room's sky-high belief in themselves during an interview with CBS.

What is that belief you may ask?

The belief that CU Boulder is a College Football Playoff contender capable of winning at least eight games and claiming one of the spots in the updated 5+7 CFP format that will begin at the conclusion of the 2024 regular season.

"The ceiling is nothing but a championship," Edwards said. "(Expectations are) to get to a bowl game, have over eight wins. I feel like we can win every single game this year on the team we've put together and are still putting together. It just all starts in the locker room and what we do on the (practice) field here."

Colorado football RB Dylan Edwards hoping running track helps him on the gridiron

Edwards told CBS that he's hoping his foray into a second sport, track and field, will help him come the Fall when Colorado begins its quest to the College Football Playoff.

"Coming to college, I've seen how track can elevate your game to another level," Edwards said. "Running track here at CU is definitely going to make me better for the fall season."

Edwards addressed the 2023 season as well, noting his stats regression from his Week 1 masterpiece and the attitude he needed to keep as his touches went down not to let it affect his mindset.

"I'm just glad I got to get in there to do my thing," Edwards said. "I knew it was going to come with adversity after the first game, having that many touchdowns. All I can do is keep my head down and play the game I love."

Edwards' attitude is laudable. Instead of sulking about his fewer touches as the season progressed, the RB did everything in his power to improve; even dedicating himself more to the University of Colorado's athletics programs.

Hey everyone: be a Dylan Edwards.
