In an upcoming showdown between Colorado State and Deion Sanders’ team, head coach Jay Norvell didn’t hold back in throwing some shade at Coach Prime. Norvell took a dig at Sanders’ iconic style of wearing a hat and sunglasses during a recent interview, sparking some playful rivalry between the two coaches.
Colorado State head coach Jay Norvell playfully took a shot at Deion Sanders by commenting on his signature style of always wearing a hat and sunglasses. The lighthearted banter adds an extra layer to the upcoming game between the two teams and is sure to fuel the competitiveness on the field.
Fashion Faux Pas:
During his weekly radio show, Norvell opened up about his team’s interviews leading up to the highly anticipated CSU vs. Colorado matchup. He couldn’t resist making a sly comment about Sanders’ fashion choices.
“I sat down with ESPN today,” Norvell revealed. “I don’t care if they hear it in Boulder. I told them, I took my hat off and I took my glasses off. I said when I talk to grown-ups, I take my hat off and my glasses off. That’s what my mother taught me.”
Clearly taking aim at Deion Sanders’ signature look of always sporting a cap and sunglasses, Norvell’s comments added an amusing twist to the upcoming game.
Rivalry in the Works:
While Sanders has yet to respond directly to Norvell’s playful jab, it’s safe to say that the remark will fuel the rivalry on the field. The former Dallas Cowboys legend is known for using any perceived disrespect as motivation for his team, and Norvell’s comment will be no exception.
The Colorado Buffaloes, who are currently 2-0 this season, have been striving to gain recognition nationwide. They have previously used comments and actions from opposing coaches to rally their team and secure victories, as demonstrated in their recent win against the Nebraska Huskers, fueled by remarks made by Nebraska coach Matt Rhule.
The highly anticipated Rams vs. Buffs game is set to kick off at 7 PM. Despite Colorado’s 23.5-point favorite status, Norvell’s poke at Deion Sanders’ fashion sense might just add an extra spark to the matchup, altering the betting odds and making the game even more exciting to watch.
