The Colorado Buffaloes head coach wants absolute silence while he delivers commands. Yes, you heard that right. Deion Sanders has switched to the role of a strict teacher while coaching the Buffs squad for the upcoming spring season. 

Coach Prime wants the defensive recruits to listen properly to his instructions rather than create commotion during the training session. In the latest video posted by Well Off Media, this stern side of Deion Sanders is revealed.

The video shows footage from the Buffaloes’ Spring Practice captured by Deion Sanders through a POV camera. As Coach Prime coaches the defensive recruits, he ensures they delve into the action on the field. Running after every player, he hardly has time to catch his breath. Yet nothing seems to surpass his notice. Deion Sanders addresses the team in a relatively rigid tone as confusion prevails with the call among the defensive recruits, “Why are we having a problem with getting the call? Why are we having a problem? Why we talking?”

He then tries to figure out where the problem lies from the players, asking them, “Where’s the disconnect?” to which one of the players from the defense team comes up with an instant reply, “Nowhere. They just got to listen.” With this, it is evident that Coach Prime holds high aspirations for his squad.    

High hopes seem to reign with Sanders

Deion Sanders’ second spring in Colorado is special, as he started his set of 15 practices last month in Boulder. Last season left Coach Prime crestfallen, as the team finished 4-8. However, this time, a winning mentality seems to reign within the Buffs coach, as he confidently claimed in an interview, “We’re gonna win. I know that. You know that. We’re gonna win.”

Also, Sanders even sees hope and has predicted that the team would earn a bowl game appearance this year. Even though he did not directly claim it, he hinted at it, saying that the number of games that the Buffaloes will be playing in 2024 “is not gonna be just 12.” Maybe he draws strength from Shedeur’s progress, who is “back to full, 110%” after being unable to deliver his best last season. Recovering from leg and back injuries, the quarterback is now confident about his progress so far, as he said, “I feel stronger. I’m healed. I’m rested up.”

Deion Sanders never fails with his strategies. This time is no exception, as he brought in the top offensive tackle in the nation, Jordan Seaton, to provide Shedeur with better protection. However, for the moment, Coach Prime wants undivided attention and a focused approach from the players.
