    Deion's performance as a coach placed lots of pressure on other coaches to be better for their teams. Most of his students are better because of his standards. God bless him.

    I love that he’s telling his now former players “you see your opportunity, you go for it.” People like to criticize players for transferring just as much as coaches get criticized for taking a better job.

      Not what I heard. He said he is leaving because you are either "elevated or terminated", so he took another job. Then the very next sentence he is telling the players "don't start thinking there is something better on the other side".
      He is doing exactly what he told his players not to do. This was only his 3rd season with this team, they won the title twice. He was in no danger what so ever of losing his coaching position, if anything, they were about to give him a raise to keep him there. He just decided it looked better on the other side, plain and simple.

      @Juan Z baby baby now I go to JSU girl it be the same ppl who ain’t never donate to help an hbcu or jsu talk down on a guy who changed our whole school. You don’t even understand how amazing this year was in school just the football team winning and the media we got made eveyeone happy but in JSU their always was talks of admin having too much control of the schools money and not doing anything with it. Mind you every single game was sold out but the tickets and the number of ppl didn’t match. Man in homecoming and college game day it was reported that in those 3 games they should have made over 19 million in economic impact!!!! In 2021 Jackson state football team generate 30 million for the city !!! Record breaking and that was last year imagine this year!!!!! Each swac championship they made 8 million! Back to back champions . The 4 home games this year made 16.2 million !! Many local business saw a huge economic change to their revenue and city. Where is all this money and baby this all reported and true go search it up . Their was a whole local article in school that eveyeone read that said Deion was supposed to get a 10% cut after they reach 30,000 or some but he never got it reported but the school always kept shouting every game this is our “10 consecutive sell out” like a good football team brings in so much money for a school and city and trust me baby Deion brought millions upon millions girl he changed our dusty dirty water fountain drink that the school was telling us that they were going to change for years. He put his team staff and their families in hotels for days when the city had dirty water. He asked pay for his staff cuz the school were low balling them and admin wasn’t trying to do that. They were stingy asf with the money but they never showed us where the money went but they wanna get new cars chillleeeeee. Come on now we been asking for parking spots for students long before Deion was here and they said they had no funds but now that Deion is bringing in funds we kept asking them and they kept saying they don’t have any trust me they do they mishandled the money and it was talks around the school months before . Also alums never really donated and kept depending on Deion to do eveuthing this man brought sponsors to literally pay for everything . Deion wanted the school to help him get suits for each kid they denied so what he do he used his realtionship with Michael strahan and got a suit for each kid on game day . He helped bring espn to hbcu with a 10 year 120 million dollar deal come on. He used his realtionship with American Airlines to get private flights to each game they needed to flight in a normal college the school pays for these things not the coach especially when the coach was on a 300k salary and half of that was to the practice field , football field , new facility , new locker room, conference , and the boys and girls basketball team got a new locker room. I swear I’m a senior now when I tell you freshmen year the school kept saying they were going to make a new field they never did but kept asking for donations and kept getting it but nothing to show for it when Deion came he made ts happen in a snap of a finger that was not a good look. His sons cars were constantly broken into I mean constantly they were targeted by ppl who knew that they were their cars and JSU did nothing to investigate and let it go on and it’s always been a problem but they never address it. Do you know what other college team had more uniforms then JSU this year Oregon ducks!!! A piwer 5! He gave them kids new threads weekly with their last name on their back so their families can be proud they never had that before at most of these colleges they play for the name on the front and don’t want you to get fame from the name on the back but Deion ain’t care. He used his realtionship and got a sponsor from under armoir for them jerseys. He gave my cousin a second chance to play for the team after the school wanted to drop him cuz or his grades but they didn’t know he was struggling because his father was in the hospital my uncle but Deion did and vouched for him and they still were hating but he didn’t stop. I’m telling you the school got way too comfortable and thought Deion needed them and said way too many NO then YES. The bare minimum of him asking for his staff to get paid and they denied so he had to pay some from his pocket and ppl wonder why most of his staff came with him because they finally abiut to get paid what they worth. He changed all those guys lives. He brought the #1 recruit Travis hunter . He brought a 4 star Kevin Coleman . His son had offers to play for alabama, usc, Oklahoma etc but came to JSU. Back to back swac champions 27-5 overall record . Got the team sponsors from barstool , under armoir , overtime , American Airlines , afleck, . Deion brought a new celebrity each game they came and showed love cuz of Deion no one else. He used his realtionship to get what he wanted because he couldn’t do anything he wanted at JSU he was limited especially with a school that was playing odd. The last home game of the year instead of JSU doing a tribute for him like they’ve done for all coaches even when they were terrible they literally sang a goodbye song and were disrespectful asf “ Go ahead and leave then “. Maybe if every black American actually donated and help hbcus they would be more than enough help and admins were checked yearly how they spend their money we would be good. Deion brought in millions honey I’m telling you a good program changes everything but when the admin can’t show where they put the money it gets fishy and weird especially when ppl who never see money like that don’t know how to handle it and that’s always been a problem for multiple hbcus admins showing nothing of where the money goes. Even with the city money that Deion brought in they used that to clean roads , construction, clean water for certain areas etc Jackson state made more money this last 2 years from a

    I played Division II college football in the early 1980s and went through a coaching change my sophomore year. It was at that point when I got my wake up call about why I was really there. The new coach told us he was going run the team like a business and we were just like products on a store shelf. He said he would get rid of anyone that wasn’t producing. There was no warm and fuzzy feelings there.He made it clear he was there to win football games because that’s how he fed his family. The painful reality is he was right. He didn’t care about having a close personal connection with his players. It’s a business for college coaches unlike most high school coaches. I’m also a retired high school football coach of 35yrs with 25 as a head coach. I had players play on every college division level with a very few playing in the NFL. I told everyone of them before they signed their athletic scholarship that they were going to college to get a college education for a career first not the NFL. One was lucky enough to play 11yrs in the NFL and coaches in the NFL today. The rest only played one or two years. So with that said every 4 star and 5 star high school football player will not have a NFL future. When Coach Prime signed a high school player to play football at Jackson State that kid had already won. He was giving that young man an opportunity to get a college education to have a career beyond playing football and to help his family. Coach Prime has lived up to his end of the deal by giving these young men the opportunity at a better life through paying for school with a athletic scholarship. Most forget when it comes to education the laws of physics are the same at Jackson State and any Division I or I AA school. Education is first not football. Coach Prime thanks for raising the bar and reminding people that HBCUs play good football . I think Coach Sanders has done more to help these young black men than he will ever know by making being a head football coach cool. The next Eddie Robinson may be watching him and deciding right now he wants to be a successful head football coach at a HBCU.

    Coaches, mentors, leaders you look up to are so essential in life. I remember when I and a large group of teenagers had a leader leaving and we were devastated. Like real bad we had parents come talk to us in groups to console us. I didn't understand but a woman with great wisdom told me, it's not about the leader. It's about what you take from them that they taught you and apply that to your life moving forward. That has stayed with me since then. They are here to teach you and it's up to you if you'll continue to put in the work yourself and not only rely on leadership. I don't watch football like that & don't know anything about Deion or these teams but since this been everywhere I just thought about that moment in my life. I can relate to these players. Keep going guys just like young man at 10:50 said.

    it is so fascinating to see Deion Sanders to reach such high level of competence. I am 62 yers old and watched him play for several teams in NFL and his ego fighting for football. Gentleman has gone thru incredible self-renewal. the young men need to look up to him regardless you are black or whatever your skin color is.
    Just watch his humility, humanity, grace and his reasonableness in talking to you. it is so up-lifting.
    Just look at his contemporaries, where they end up and where Deion Sanders is now.

    Watching the tour of the CU facility reminds me of the opening words of the classic Charles Dickens novel, _A Tale of Two Cities._ "It was the best of times; it was the worse of times." There are quite a few parallels. I am first reminded of the jubilation experienced by the JSU family when Coach Prime arrived in Jackson and gave his inaugural speech. There was a cheering section then, and there is a cheering section at CU. While the cheers at CU are just beginning, those that once rang out on the campus of JSU have now gone silent. It was the best of times; it was the worst times. When the people of Boulder look at their recent football history, this hire makes them smile with joy. When the people of Jackson look at their recent football history this hire makes them frown with grief. It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. For me personally, I was reflecting on the upgrades to the JSU locker room, practice field, uniforms, etc, which were indeed a blessing. But then I remembered what CU had to offer in those same areas, and I had a sobering but frightening revelation. It really put everything into perspective. It showed just how far behind the curve that HBCUs really are. And it makes you wonder if there is really hope that the proverbial playing field will ever be leveled. It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.

He went from making them where #Believe shirts everyday to basically telling them they ain’t sh** and not getting drafted any way. Sports is a FAMILY bond (especially football) how he ending the note with these boys is CRAZY. He started off by saying “it is what it is” and basically finished with “y’all ain’t sh** no way” this shows low integrity to me. HALF OF THE TEAM NOT EVEN THERE, you can FEEL the vibe in the room! Proves to stop putting blind faith in our idols. Those boys just got an important dose of reality that “Dreams being SOLD is a part of the BUSINESS” to the young athletes out there remember to always make decisions that benefit YOU and yours. Because after high school is the last time sports will be PURE and Genuine. ALL BUSINESS AND LOW MORALS

      I think it is totally hypocritical that he told them to do what he's saying and not what he's doing. How do you tell your team you are leaving for a better offer and then tell them to not go looking on the other side for something better? Bunch of BS thrown at these players again, first to get them there, now to try and keep them from leaving.

      Research coach Billy Joe. Coach Joe was the first Black coach to coach at a PWI. Research his record and the number of champions he won. Alonzo Gaither is a legend. He held workshops attended by Bear Bryant and other White coaches. Google Gaither and Bryant. Do you know that FAMU, under the direction of coach Gaither was the first HBCU to play a PWI?. FAMU won. FAMU beat Miami in the late seventies.
      Eddie Robinson, John Merritt, and a coach at Southern University whose name I don't recall. Those gents have legacies. They coached through adversity. Adversity doesn't build character it reveals character. Coach Prime has yet to face adversity.

Now if coach had been driving down the road in his car and got hit by a truck and was never able to coach again. Is that any different than telling his guys up front that he has another offer. Every person in that room would jump at the chance. You prove your worth by what you produce. Congrats coach you did what you promised. You left it all on the field and on the table. Will JSU be a better place because of Deon? Will see….

You don’t even understand how amazing this year was in school just the football team winning and the media we got made eveyeone happy but in JSU their always was talks of admin having too much control of the schools money and not doing anything with it. Mind you every single game was sold out but the tickets and the number of ppl didn’t match. Man in homecoming and college game day it was reported that in those 3 games they should have made over 19 million in economic impact!!!! In 2021 Jackson state football team generate 30 million for the city !!! Record breaking and that was last year imagine this year!!!!! Each swac championship they made 8 million! Back to back champions . The 4 home games this year made 16.2 million !! Many local business saw a huge economic change to their revenue and city. Where is all this money and baby this all reported and true go search it up . Their was a whole local article in school that eveyeone read that said Deion was supposed to get a 10% cut after they reach 30,000 or some but he never got it reported but the school always kept shouting every game this is our “10 consecutive sell out” like a good football team brings in so much money for a school and city and trust me baby Deion brought millions upon millions girl he changed our dusty dirty water fountain drink that the school was telling us that they were going to change for years. He put his team staff and their families in hotels for days when the city had dirty water. He asked pay for his staff cuz the school were low balling them and admin wasn’t trying to do that. They were stingy asf with the money but they never showed us where the money went but they wanna get new cars chillleeeeee. Come on now we been asking for parking spots for students long before Deion was here and they said they had no funds but now that Deion is bringing in funds we kept asking them and they kept saying they don’t have any trust me they do they mishandled the money and it was talks around the school months before . Also alums never really donated and kept depending on Deion to do eveuthing this man brought sponsors to literally pay for everything . Deion wanted the school to help him get suits for each kid they denied so what he do he used his realtionship with Michael strahan and got a suit for each kid on game day . He helped bring espn to hbcu with a 10 year 120 million dollar deal come on. He used his realtionship with American Airlines to get private flights to each game they needed to flight in a normal college the school pays for these things not the coach especially when the coach was on a 300k salary and half of that was to the practice field , football field , new facility , new locker room, conference , and the boys and girls basketball team got a new locker room. I swear I’m a senior now when I tell you freshmen year the school kept saying they were going to make a new field they never did but kept asking for donations and kept getting it but nothing to show for it when Deion came he made ts happen in a snap of a finger that was not a good look.

Do you know what other college team had more uniforms then JSU this year Oregon ducks!!! A piwer 5! He gave them kids new threads weekly with their last name on their back so their families can be proud they never had that before at most of these colleges they play for the name on the front and don’t want you to get fame from the name on the back but Deion ain’t care. He used his realtionship and got a sponsor from under armoir for them jerseys. He gave my cousin a second chance to play for the team after the school wanted to drop him cuz or his grades but they didn’t know he was struggling because his father was in the hospital my uncle but Deion did and vouched for him and they still were hating but he didn’t stop. I’m telling you the school got way too comfortable and thought Deion needed them and said way too many NO then YES.

      @Nick Swanson he said the only difference between HBCU's and PWS in terms of football was the interior lineman and once he solidified those 5 star interior lineman he would be ready for the match ups against power 5 schools so just with that I thought he would be at JSU for a few more years to level the playing field as much as possible. At the end of the day I understand all points of view regarding this situation.

      @Christopher ValentineIn the press conference he only talked about JSU being SWAC champions which delivered them 2 of them and said he would change the outlook on HBCUs which he did he never said he would stay forever or that was going to stay to make them compete with Power 5 teams

    I knew Deion was not telling the truth when he told his players that he wasn’t looking for another job!!! Then he takes his son, the quarterback with him! Geez!

    I have a lot of respect for Coach Prime, but why does it always have to come down to skin color? When are we ever going to achieve MLK's "dream" of judging people by the "content of their character" and not on race? I look forward to seeing what Coach Sanders is able to accomplish with the Buffalos!

    I am a Career Coach at an HBCU and Coach Prime has inspired me do even better by our students. Not every student athlete is going to be a professional athlete, and even then there is life after sports. I respect Coach Prime for making a tough decision and being open with his players. There is a part of me that wants him to continue at JSU but he stated that he is being called for other things beyond this university. The microscope is going to continue to be on him but I believe he will rise to the challenge. Either way, I wish JSU and Coach Prime the best.

    Love what Prime did for JSU, but he’s running Jedi mind tricks about the transfer portal.
    He’s trying to keep his top players from submitting so they’re eligible for the Celebration Bowl and he can go out as a winner.
    Coaches will not question a player’s integrity. If Travis Hunter submitted to the portal today every program would be fighting for him.

    Him opening with a lie "elevated or terminated" and placing his decision on God is disrespectful to the Swac conference, the player's careers, and their intelligence.

    Deon is a First class gentleman. When opportunity knocks you’ve got to weigh everything out. We are not in his shoes to FULLY understand. Coaches come and go at all levels. He was a gem while there, hopefully the next coach does the same. I wish nothing but the best for this program. Colorado now looks to be a better program. He makes change there he’s adding to those he has blessed in the past. Go BUFFS!

      @T ELAM I won’t argue any of your points because like you said I’m not a black man. Black women might have more women role models available but we are also missing the men/our fathers. I’m not saying it’s the same but little girls need men just as much as little boys, for different reasons of course. Again, I get what you’re saying but unfortunately this is life. Those young men will have to learn to be grateful for the opportunities they’ve received and use what they were taught moving forward. Also, his decision isn’t personal to the team. It’s not about them so hopefully they learn it’s okay for people to do what they want and to not take it personal. It’s up to them. Unfortunately, Deion has his own family to think about.

      @Lori Davis It is sad, Black boys don't have as many role models as Black women. Why are Women @ me about this and not MEN? I have 6 brothers, I know! I witnessed boys growing to be MEN and how they processed emotions. They handle disappoints different then Women! Like I said..., Black boys don't have as many role models as black female! Female teachers out number Male teachers? Females Wokers outnumber men at Walmart? Bus drivers? Cashiers? ect.., Young men have more "daily" contact with women vs men. Yall women saying that they should get it.1 IT'S EASY FOR A WOMEN TO SAY HOW THEY SHOULD FEEL AND PROCESS THIS MOVE. THEY ARE NOT MEN! They will handle it.... some good and some bad. I pray for them all. and it's not just Dieon, he just exposed an unhealed WOUND IN THE BLACK Community. I also feel that Deion have to live his life. He is in his fifties' and his health isn't all that great, he can't stay 10 to 15 years in a place trying to make it greats. If he was in his 30's and had younger kids, it would be different. He got an opportunity to live in a peaceful and comfortable place, .... you see how he keep saying "there is little crime." He is Rich ! and when you are RICH and, in the hood, you are a MARK! no matter WHO you are! 10 toe Dieon had the strength to fight back. 8 toe Dieon can't take on the hood and school corruption.

    I could go write a short story about Prime 😎 Simply put. I believed him to be led by his Faith & Principles!! After all these years I see he's a wolf in 🐑 sheep's clothing.! If not he wouldn't be contradicting himself with what he's told them and everyone watching/listening the whole time.! Especially what he's saying in this video.! Dam shame that these young men are laughing and not really asking questions when offered the opportunity. Which says it's for the cameras and was all discussed at different time and if not it's even worse!! You can't tell young men you are supposed to be teaching life skills to be good men and successful. That it's not about this or that. When it can be only but a few things. Also NOT to do this! Meanwhile the whole dam time your doing it and you acknowledge that you are, but I don't want you to do it.! I also can guarantee that if God tells you to do ANYTHING! Anything at all! There will NOT be LIES, Contradictions, or for you to say out loud what he told you to do and say our loud God told me to do it.! We Are NOT supposed to Boast about our gifts of the Spirit!! Saying out loud "God spoke to me" or "God is telling me" is a form of boasting!! Yes I know you haven't been taught that in your church!! There's a LOT of things you haven't been taught!! Also there's a LOT we've been taught that ISN'T Scriptural.! A LOT.! The proof is always in the pudding.! Always! Let's see if Mr Hunter doesn't go or does!! Then will have more truth.!

    It was getting too Easy for Primetime. He had no choice but to take the next challenge. I believe the young men who stay will be fine they should have strong character. They were picked by Deion
