The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Coach Prime: Is he Good for College Football

Coach Prime: Is he Good for College Football

Publish Date: 05/30/2023
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

Coach Prime’s Messiah complex

Since Sanders was hired at Colorado, over 80% of his players have left. Though, as soon as he was introduced, he made it clear they weren’t considered “his” players.

They were the unwanted debris from an unsuccessful 1-11 season, an after effect from the program he had been hired to restore.

If you don’t like how Sanders handles it – and you shouldn’t! – so be it. He told his players before the Buffs spring game: “If I am honest and it hurts your feelings, that is your issue and not mine; my contract with God requires me to be this way.” A contract with God allows you to treat people poorly because of your ego? I am not sure this is how God works. I am pretty sure that in the Bible, pride is one of the worst issues to have.

Deion has always possessed something of a Messiah Complex, and in this instance, he’s fulfilling some of God’s work by helping people face up to college football’s unsavory reality. The issue here is that all of his talk about God falls short when you look at his actions.

College football has always had meat market elements. With NIL deals, its portal and loose transfer rules, and NFL Lite becoming increasingly prevalent – Colorado is taking the free agency to an entirely different level.

Twenty-three players entered the portal after the spring game, bringing the total to over 50 since Coach Prime arrived on campus. No other school has seen more than 30 voluntarily or involuntarily leave in one day.

By the time Sanders is finished, at least 70 of Colorado’s 85 scholarship players will be newcomers; hopefully, Ralphie the Buffalo will still have a job come fall!

Sanders can’t be held entirely responsible for this new reality; he became part of it. Yet it would be fair to question his use of power as well.

Deion Sanders has taken pleasure in taking on the “Grim Reaper” role as he trims Colorado roster. Most coaches exhibit some degree of compassion when sending kids packing; Sanders seems to relish being cast as “The Grim Reaper.” Sure, he relishes it because Deion loves everything to be about Deion.

Sanders knows his way around marketing.

Longtime Prime followers remember how Deion first made his mark at Florida State as an unknown freshman from Fort Myers. Inspired by Oklahoma linebacker Brian Bosworth’s “Boz” act, Sanders adopted his “Prime Time” persona.

Sanders eventually transcended acting to become himself; he Prime-Timed his way through college, MLB, NFL, TV gigs, and a coaching career.

Deion Sanders made sure his Buffaloes would become a significant draw last week, with 551K viewers tuning into ESPN for last Saturday’s spring game – the highest television audience since 2016.

Sanders embraces his celebrity. His assistants wear black hoodies decorated with gold “PRIME.” Georgia staffers would likely find it odd for Kirby Smart to treat holdover players like an embarrassment in his staff refrigerator!

Cut Players Don’t Value Coach Prime”He didn’t seem to remember half the names he cut from our 1-11 team,” Travis Gray noted to The Athletic. “He only seemed concerned with who was coming in, no matter how hard we tried.

One player, who asked not to be identified, stated, “Wherever the camera’s at, that’s where Deion can be found.

Sanders points out that he made clear to players from day one that he intended to overhaul their roster and win more games with their upgraded squad. This argument holds water.

Sanders stated on the Pat McAfee Show, “It would be impossible for me to put new furniture into this beautiful home unless we remove old pieces,” as it’s impossible without first clearing away old items. So these players are nothing more than old furniture to Coach prime?

How would it feel to be compared with grandma’s plastic-coated velour couch?

Sanders views players not as young, postgraduate students but as commodities to be utilized or scrapped in pursuit of rebuilding a football program quickly.

Deion was SWAC. It was fantastic what he did for Jackson State and HBCU football, but it is painfully obvious that it was more about Coach Prime than the kids he was supposed to be helping; at Colorado, Coach Prime will play other programs with 4 and 5-star athletes just like he has. At the HBCU level he came up short in back-to-back-championship games, and his opponents had nowhere near Coach Prime’s talent, yet Prime still failed in the end. Will Coach Prime succeed? Probably not, but he will sell the Prime brand to know end, and you can take that to the bank.
