Not gonna lie they probably should’ve kept this speech private… because…😂
“.. it is what it is… coaches either get elevated or terminated”

Note the subtle shift: It went from being about doing the necessary building at HBCUs to how coaches are selected/rewarded.

Bro ruined some guys D1 scholarships… 5 ⭐️ players….
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
I would’ve like to see Deion see a graduating class of players out of JSU and possibly drafted in the NFL. That’s changing the narrative of HBCUs. All of these other changes people are naming are good, but what about the players? They should’ve been the objective. Wish him well.
This is pretty good. And interesting to listen too.
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
This is not good!!! Especially, In Black community. You up and leave like that..i know people in Mississippi. You are wrong Prime Time 😡
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
This hurts !! No PWI would give you a chance as a HC. JSU takes a chance and you don’t even see your 1st class walk across the stage.
idk who buddy is sitting to the right of Prime, but that man is PISSED 😂
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
This shit is heartbreaking. Why can’t black people realize it’s only beneficial sticking with our own. I’m sure Jackson State made more money this season than they’ll probably ever make. In a couple more seasons who knows, he could’ve fielded a team to contend for a major bowl gm
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
Idk why everyone mad. Jackson State didnt even offer him a extension what is he supposed to do
This video was 9 mins of him bragging in them ppl face 😂😂
“The good ones already knew I was leaving, but the ones who didn’t, don’t think too hard about jumping into the portal. Colorado is packed right now.”
I been through this 3 times 🤣🤣🤣know how them boys feeling
Preached all that HBCU shit just to leave and go to a PWI nigga you a bitch
Business class 101...straight talk + real talk = 💰 Talks. This the greatest lesson he could have given his players. #CrucialConversations
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
A lot of people in this comments don’t understand how college football works they were just happy price was at jsu
Ion know bruh i respect it but i don’t.. all dem kids parents u talked to and convinced that could of went to other big schools but chose to ride wit you & u up & dip.. i would of waited til most of my recruits got up outta there to next level
It’s sad how many ppl turned on this man in the comments he made it clear from day 1 he wasn’t staying there
Man.. save that long winded shit.
1. What happened when he mentioned about giving him a few years to compete with the Bamas of the world???
2. Basically told them don’t y’all leave cause I’m leaving y’all not making it out 😂
3. New job isn’t much better than the current 😂
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
What if his big vision was to bring light to the HBCU’s so that he could create an avenue and doorway for more minority Head Coaches to D1 College FB and then the NFL also, what would stop him from using the Portal through HBCU’s as a development and recruiting tool for all HBCU
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
Damn I feel for them kids. Deion definitely changed the culture there I hate to see him up n leave especially break the news before the season is over
Prime my guy man I felt him in this speech kept it a bean with them guys
Deion did what he needed to do. NOBODY was talking about HBCUs like that until Prime went there. He did SWAC a favor. HBCUs have to change the way they do business, but they won't because their stuck in their ways.
We love Deion so much man. Even know he’s speaking to his team his message reaches us outside the locker room. It reaches a lot of Black Men & Boys that might not get a chance to play for prime but we can still catch the lessons he teaches. And apply them to our lives. Salute 🫡
That’s how you explain things to teenagers unfortunately this is how life works you do good Yu move up the latter
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
Colorado ain’t been nothing since Kordell Stewart🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️😂😂
"In coaching you either get elevated or you get terminated."

Deion Sanders officially tells his players he's accepted the head coaching job at Colorado.
I hate this decision smh 😔 for Colorado?!! Naww
Handled It the best he could
Lol he saying just fwm
When I go to Colorado 😂
Disappointed, but not surprised
Mel Tucker would never
He lost me when he brought up black coaches being fired this why they swac was so important I don’t get what’s at Colorado besides some $$

What happens w Travis hunter?
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
Job well done Coach Prime 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
You gotta love Prime! Happy for him and excited to see him at the next level!
Lol Prime tryna let the SWAC guys know they just SWAC guys
If anybody disagrees with HIS decision, then maybe you should go and coach JSU next!🤷🏾‍♂️
Preciate everything you did for Jacktown Coach Prime
I hope to manifest this into existence. I would like to see Deion sanders coach the giants some day
Really, really, REALLY big fan of Deion. He’s a real one. That’s hard conversation to have with your team and he crushed it.
Nothing but class from Deion and respect for JSU
He sold them dudes a dream
Man them kids finna run to the transfer portal 😂
Bro say elevated or terminated lmaooo cut this shit off wasn’t nobody finna fire his ass
In reply to @DeionSanders
If Colorado win the PAC 12 within the next 2 years. It’s up!
“It’s not about a bag, it’s about an opportunity.” Deion Sanders.
Deion like look, some of y’all not coming wit me lol
He was the person that could build these HBCU’s up but just like any other black athlete or entertainer he took a job in the middle of nowhere and got potatoes. Why bring a 5 star there and leave the next year! Phony
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
Makes sense. They never let his team compete for the natty unless he coaches at a different school.
I watched the whole thing
He’s such a great coach 🥹
“Dominant the opportunity and treat people right “ Prime
Instead of being mad they should throw a party for this man cuz he bought so much attention to the Jackson area 💪💪
I love you Prime , but im disappointed in you
Lameee ass nigga
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
Let’s tell it like it is. He went after the money. Fuck the kids. So save the he being real.
Bruh, who tf watches Colorado football?
He got all them kids to come to that school just to leave. Exactly why I would’ve never let them make that dumbass move to go there. Take yo ass to a real college
Thank you Coach prime for what you have done for Jackson State, we’ll continue to grow from the seed that you planted within us.
So much discourse over this….he did a great job putting HBCU athletics back on the map. Its clear he wants to elevate and represent AA coaches at the next division of college fb. As 4 coaches have been terminated, he’s entering and will continue to shake things up.
Man this shìt done surprise me
Welp it’s official. Should’ve waited for a better job.
This is all that matters....
This feels like a cop out to me....Prime could've stayed at JSU and kept elevating. He could've built something special. The money would've come. The players had started to come. I legit thought he would turn JSU into a powerhouse as far as recruiting and he could've....
Most of them wouldn’t be playing for a hbcu school if he wasn’t there. It’s expected they jumping in that portal
In reply to @shannonsharpeee
What a stand up guy.
Great coach & even greater man. I wish @DeionSanders nothing but the best but still wished he would have stayed and built up JSU
