The always outspoken Deion Sanders says that his Colorado Buffaloes need more income from their alumni in order to achieve success
Deion Sanders has drawn a lot of attention to the Colorado Buffaloes football program. His presence has allowed the school to attract some top high school stars, like Prime Time’s own son, Shedeur.
But the NFL Hall of Famer recently told school supporters that they need to pony up a few more pennies out of their pockets for Colorado to compete.
Unfortunately for Deion Sanders and the Buffaloes (1-8) finished last in the PAC-12 this year, and the former cornerback says cash is king when it comes to the Colorado program.
“We definitely need giving, you know what I mean?” Sanders said, during his post-game press conference.
“It’s unfortunate to say this but some kids cost. It’s unfortunate to say this, and we have not charted this yet. But I’m gonna ask for the numbers, but if you start thinking about the top several teams in the country, I see what was spent on assembling the teams.”
“You know, we can sit here and talk about great coaching and great this and great that all we want, but it’s gonna be a credit card swipe in some kind of way with all these guys going to these places,” Sanders said. “And I understand that.”
Deion Sanders notably left Jackson State University in 2022 after bringing the program to prominence. Now, the former two-time Super Bowl winner is looking to turn around the fortunes of a Colorado program that hasn’t seen prominence for years.
The two-time Super Bowl winner has proven that he can ‘sell’ his team to the masses. Whether or not he can produce a winner remains to be seen, however.
