Colorado's Deion Sanders Gifts Shades as Jab at Colorado State Coach

Colorado head coach Deion Sanders gets personal ahead of game against Colorado State, responding to comments made by Rams head coach Jay Norvell.

Colorado head coach Deion Sanders appeared on national television to discuss the upcoming game against Colorado State, emphasizing the personal nature of the matchup. Sanders' comments came after Rams head coach Jay Norvell expressed his frustration with the attention surrounding the game and the focus on Sanders and the 18th-ranked Buffaloes. Norvell mentioned that his players were tired of the media hype and wanted to prove themselves on the field.

In response to Norvell's comments, Sanders delivered a passionate speech to his team during Thursday's practice, emphasizing the personal significance of the game. He also presented Prime 21 sunglasses from Blenders to every player and gifted the same to the hosts of ESPN's "First Take" and "The Pat McAfee Show." Sanders, known for his "Prime Time" nickname, expressed his disappointment with Norvell's remarks and questioned why he would take that direction.

Sanders' youngest son and Colorado quarterback, Shedeur, as well as cornerback Travis Hunter, also addressed the situation on "First Take." Shedeur Sanders expressed that all respect was gone, while Hunter acknowledged the pressure on the team and their responsibility to handle it.

Colorado State, a member of the Mountain West Conference, suffered a 50-24 defeat against Washington State on September 2. The Rams have not won against a ranked opponent in their last 24 games since their victory over then-No. 7 Colorado in 2002. They have also lost their last five meetings against Colorado in the Rocky Mountain Showdown.

The game between Colorado and Colorado State is expected to be highly anticipated and closely watched, given the personal nature of the matchup and the desire of both teams to prove themselves on the field.
