Deion Sanders sends a strong message to Shedeur doubters

Coach Prime is tired of critics questioning his quarterback

Deion Sanders has always been consistent when describing his son, Shedeur Sanders.

On Saturday, as numerous national media converged on Boulder, the same themes reappeared and, suddenly, Coach Prime was being asked if Shedeur has “met expectations” or “when did you know he’d be this good,” all the usual recurring themes.

“His nickname in my phone, as most of you know, is “Grown.” He’s very mature for his age. He’s very confident and he don’t flinch. He never gets flustered. He’s the most-sacked quarterback in college football and you couldn’t tell with how he carries himself,” said Sanders.

For those questioning whether Shedeur could successfully transition from HBCU competition to one of the strongest Pac-12 seasons ever, the answer is abundantly clear.

He’s not only meeting his FCS performance levels, he’s actually exceeding them. Through five games, Shedeur has a 165.9 quarterback rating.

At the rate he’s going, he’ll end the season with over 4,000 yards passing, 35+ touchdowns, and likely a trip to New York for the Heisman Trophy presentation.

So, it led to a most fitting end to the postgame press conference, and it provided another classic Coach Prime soundbite.

“He’s been built and reared for this his whole life…..The kid has always won. He’s always been dominant. He’s always been smart and intelligent and concise. He’s always been a competitor and lifted the level of competition, and he’s always given us a chance to succeed on every level. I can go on and on but I don’t want to sound like the Dad….but the kid can flat out play. You know a lot of people doubted him and said I just thrusted him into the starting position….All of you should just look in the mirror and slap whatever you see.”

Colorado (3-2) travels to Arizona State (1-4) on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET.
