The haters in the college community have come for Deion Sanders ever since he started making things happen at an HBCU with the immediate success he has been having as football coach at Jackson State University.

According to CBS News, Alabama coach Nick Saban, during an interview accused Coach Prime and Jackson State University of using the name, image, and likeness (NIL) protocols to pay the number one recruit $1 million to play at the school. Travis Hunter Jr., who initially committed to Florida State University had changed his mind and committed to Jackson State instead. That set off immediate rumors of him being paid $1 million to attend Jackson State University.

Saban stated, “Jackson State paid a guy $1 million last year who was a really good Division I player to come to their school. It was in the paper, and they bragged about it. No one did anything about it.”

This definitely got a reaction from Sanders as he had to make clear that Black people didn’t have to be paid by Black people to play with Black people.

Hunter, who made the decision to go to Jackson State also responded to what Saban stated.

As Coach Prime says, he doesn’t even make a million!

The New York Post has reported that Saban has gone on record as saying that he has reached out to Sanders privately, but, Coach Prime refuses to take his call.

Sanders admits this during an interview with Andscape and said, “I haven’t talked to Coach Saban. I’m sure he’s tried to call. We need to talk publicly — not privately. What you said was public. That doesn’t require a conversation. Let’s talk publicly and let everybody hear the conversation.

“You can’t do that publicly and call privately. No, no, no. I still love him. I admire him. I respect him. He’s the magna cum laude of college football and that’s what it’s going to be because he’s earned that. But he took a left when he should’ve stayed right. I’m sure he’ll get back on course. I ain’t tripping.”
