Stephen A. Smith has shared his perspective on what has been a tumultuous season for Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes.
Expressing his opinion on ESPN’s ‘Get Up’ this Monday, Smith suggested that, following the Buffaloes’ recent loss, Deion Sanders should consider leaving Colorado at the end of the season. However, his recommendation is not based on the team’s performance or the current state of affairs in Colorado; rather, Smith envisions Sanders leading Texas A&M.
“That’s what I’ve been saying, Deion Sanders in the SEC,” he said. “With that vault that they have available to them. Them hogs that he could recruit. He doesn’t have them at Colorado, and he ain’t going to get them. Deion Sanders.”
“I don’t think they’ll do it,” he admitted, adding, “Texas A&M. Primetime, Deion Sanders in the SEC? That needs to happen.”
Smith believes that Deion Sanders in the SEC, with the resources available and the potential for recruiting top talent, would be an exciting prospect. He acknowledges that Sanders may not make the move, but he emphasizes the appeal of seeing “Primetime” at Texas A&M in the SEC.
While there might be some bias due to ESPN’s SEC deal, the potential move would enhance the partnership. However, it’s unlikely that Sanders will depart Colorado soon, considering he has been with the team for just one year, and his sons still have eligibility after this season. Deion’s tendency to move around makes it challenging to predict where he might stay for an extended period.
