Nick Saban’s retirement was bound to cause waves. Yet, the suddenness of it was as unexpected as Saban’s retirement. Hence, various programs were quick to pounce on the opportunity in front of them to capture the gridiron-savvy Alabama players. The temptation to secure the bet of players got the best of the franchises, prompting them to walk on the thin line between ethical and unethical. Colorado’s Shedeur Sanders was one of the first ones to tread on it.

The transfer portal, being a free agency, operates on its own rules. Hence, the organization, upon hearing the news of Saban retiring, opened an exclusive 30-day window for Alabama players after the portal officially shut for this season on January 2. Amidst all this, Shedeur Sanders asked “All Alabama players tap n,” Creating a maelstrom of suspicions around Buffs indulging in the alleged ‘tampering’.

Coach Prime was one of the very first head coaches to comment on Saban’s retirement. Sanders built bridges of praise for Saban, referring to him as GOAT several times. Moments after, Shedeur Sanders dropped the assumed anti-ethical comment, creating a muddle. Analysts were quick to jump on the mishap. Jason Brown, the host of The Coach JB Show with Big Smitty took the responsibility to address it, targeting the hypocrisy of Deion Sanders, as his son posted a polarising comment as compared to his. “There’s not even a pause or a breath being taken for the rest in peace for a couple days,” said Coach Brown while appearing disappointed.

“Your daddy Deion Sanders, he just made a very insightful tweet about and then you turn around right after and post that,” was the direct hit at the fumble by Colorado’s star father-son duo. “His daddy says one thing but then his daddy allows his son to say another thing on social media and to me it’s the epitome of what’s wrong. 90% of these coaches are trying to get Bama’s players today. Shedeur Sanders is tweeting out Alabama players holla,” commented the host, hurling jibes at Deion Sanders. This only worsens the intensifying allegations of teams reportedly ‘tampering’ with Alabama players.
