Anyway, this video is total horseshit, I'm very certain this resonates with the barstool crowd. What he very quickly will discover is that he can't bully the Pac 12, like he did the SWAC without building depth. He can bring his own "luggage" all he wants but that roster is shallow and he's going to need some of those guys he's shitting on to build that program.

I agree.

My Colorado friends were very confused when I told them he needs those players (most for multiple years) because he simply can't bring in 85 new scholarship players in year one.

They honestly thought he could turnover the entire roster before next season.

I think he accomplished a great deal in regards to bringing attention (and high level recruits) to HBCU's.  For him to bail for more exposure and more money seems a bit hypocritical but let's be honest - none of that crap matters in major sports.  If he wins there all will be good.

He is no more or less hypocritical than any coach that leaves a program. IMO the guys like Chadwell whose primary story is "God told them to take the job' are way worse but that's picking nits as really they are all money and ego-driven hypocrites.

Exactly.  I mean, Hugh Freeze got hired AGAIN.  LOL!

I'm pretty clear that I think he's a bit of a fraud, but hiring a sitting head coach for his OC is pretty amazing.

He didn't bring any additional attention to HBCUs, at least nothing at all tangible. He did a little tiny bit for bringing a bit more exposure to the SWAC, but if you ask people today talking about Deion what conference Jackson State is in, most couldn't tell you if you spotted them the S and the W. He did bring exposure to Jackson State but it's going to leave with him and not have any kind of a legacy.

To be clear, I'm fine with him not doing anything for any other entity other than Jackson State football and Prime Inc. but I don't, at all, love many white people giving him credit for doing anything other than helping himself. Like rusty said, he's no different than most FBS college football coaches, he's no HCBU savior.

Deion is like the prosperity pastor of football coaches.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

The way some national media are in love with this move leads me to think it is not going to go well. Usually these "slam dunk" hires don't go well.
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

If he can recruit and manage a roster he'll do fine. I don't see why he can't do that.

Might take some time though

I think the toughest thing is going to be getting a decent OL/DL.  I think he will be able to nab quality skill players almost immediately.

I think the national media are in love with this because they know there will be plenty of good quotes and some drama for them to cover. 

It will be interesting to see if he can manage a roster in today's portal environment.  I have a feeling that his way (no hats in meeting as wearing a hat) will not sit well with a large group of players.

The whole thing is cringe.  I watched the 15min+ video of the AD giving "Prime" the tour of facilities.  It was definitely set up for TV.  Deion was wearing sunglasses indoors the entire time.   :cool:

I also get why CU took the gamble as they need immediate improvements, especially if the PAC 12 is on the verge of collapse.  If he has success he will be gone in short time.

Did you guys know Deion had his left big toe and second toe amputated and some chunks taken out of his left leg like a little over a year ago? A series of blood clots on the femoral artery caused compartment syndrome. That's why he was walking with a limp in that facilities tour video. I vaguely recall him riding around on a scooter thingy, but never looked into the reason why.

Mr. Prime will not be coaching in 2027 or 2028 for the Colorado Buffalos.  I'd bet the farm on that one.

Prime will either be fired or on to bigger things by then.
