I guess the question is how much of his success at Jackson State was due to him being a big fish in a small bowl?

Now that he is competing with the big boys for talent how will things work out? Will be interesting to see how it works out.


MastertoneCO t1_iyz37hs wrote

Wondering this, too. Deion's recruiting and his dominance with those classes in the SWAC will be tough to replicate in the Pac-12.

Curious to see how it all plays out.


keister_TM t1_iz000kl wrote

I think he’s probably going to have the same success, it will just take some time. He’s a great recruiter and on top of that, the college sports world has all eyes on him so that’s an extra boost for talent to go there. Also, Boulder is a beautiful town compared to all the nearby schools/competition, there are no more transfer penalties with ineligibility and NIL’s also make it easier to get players. Not only does Boulder have a lot of money as a community but Deion has the nations attention so I think he’s going to have no shortage of talent coming in within the next couple seasons. What he does with it has yet to be seen but I believe he’ll do well. It’s just kind of a bummer he left Jackson for Boulder. They are polar opposites and Jackson seemed to be really benefiting from him being there.


Jdwestsc t1_iz0rovq wrote

I had this conversation with my wife the other day. She kept telling me how beautiful the campus is and all that. My question to her was “how many college campuses have you been on that weren’t beautiful?”

She played college basketball then spent a few years as an athletic trainer after. She’s been on dozens of campuses but could only think of a couple that actually sucked.

Point being, a beautiful campus will not recruit an athlete. The other factors might help, but I don’t get why people always jump to the beautiful campus argument. If that was all that mattered, Florida Gulf Coast would win everything.


keister_TM t1_iz1xhpn wrote

I saw that because historically Boulder competes with Nebraska for recruiting due to proximity. How would you compare the two??? And of course beauty isn’t the end all but it’s one component and that will only add to the positives. Personally, I didn’t find Boulder attractive due to the seemingly lack of diversity when I was walking around campus which made me surprised that he took the job there but maybe that’s the point


Jdwestsc t1_iz1y5hw wrote

Never been on either campus lol but point taken. My comment wasn’t meant as an attack on you specifically, just the overall idea that a beautiful campus matters (you were just the lucky person that I saw first).

Idk why he decided this was a good move. I think selling the idea and culture of an HBCU to a young black kid is FAR different than selling the opportunity to play for coach Prime at Colorado. I personally don’t see this going well. However, I could just be bitter as an HBCU grad.


keister_TM t1_iz2ged4 wrote

I think the move has a good chance of going well for him but I agree that’s it’s a pretty disappointing move for everyone and I’m not an HBCU grad. It was awesome to see the impact he was having, not only on the school, but the community and HBCU conference. And now he is going to a school filled with a ton of privileged kids without a lot of diversity.

I don’t have the actual data so I could have visited on an off day but, I’m a white male and when I was walking around the campus I was even uncomfortable about the lack of diversity I saw in such a big college. Perhaps that is what motivated him to go there. Colorado in general seems to lack a lot of diversity from what I’ve seen over there and that is also what I’ve heard from friends and family that live there. They have also been bottom dwellers in the power 5 so maybe he wants to prove how big of an impact he can make. Diversify a predominantly white community (90% Caucasian which is wild for such a big city) and make the football team more competitive. I like Deion so I hope it works out for him but it’s such a kick in the nuts to the community of Jackson


GlassEyeMV t1_iz05696 wrote

Agree completely. He was smart to go where he did. It’s a great community with lots of money and will support a winning team. Boulder is awesome, so athletes will find it attractive off campus as well. He’s Deion Sanders. He’ll get recruits and attention and it may work out exactly as CU hopes. Or he could be a hell of a recruiter and have a hard time developing guys and working the Xs and Os and not turn out. But I think 3-4 years will be enough to tell.


MastertoneCO t1_iz0njrr wrote

Well, my wonderings aren't centered around him competing for talent or being able to bring talent to Boulder. That's a given. He can do that even better now with the facilities and platform of CU

I just wonder if his classes will be as dominant. In the SWAC, when you bring a 5 star recruit there, the impact of that player is much more dramatic than in the pac-12 because the overall skill level in the SWAC is much lower. Deion's teams were dominant because he was able to bring decent players to compete against not so decent ones (I assume that the overall talent of the SWAC is less competitive than the PAC-12)

So, will Deion be able to do it in the pac-12 when his recruits have more competition


dessimus t1_iz0a281 wrote

Probably a bit easier as he will not be as directly completing with SEC schools for nearby talent.


JGCities t1_iz0atjo wrote

I highly doubt many of the people he was recruiting were also being recruited by SEC schools. Maybe he snagged a few people who were going to be bench warmers at the bigger schools and convinced them they could play at his school, but otherwise very different talent levels.


dessimus t1_iz0cuzx wrote

He managed to lure a #1 5-star recruit that was previously recruited by GA and had committed to FSU. But we're only going to hear about his recruiting successes, not his missed opportunities. Literally zero chance Deion Sanders' ego is one that says I will only recruit for non-SEC level talent.

Ya I’m sure Jackson state felt like the rug got pulled out from them and that he was planning to stay longer. But it’s a business at the end of the day as a college head coach. Also upsetting that Deion telling them all to transfer when he sold them on the idea of building something there in the first place.


donkeylipsh t1_iz0ja94 wrote

But that's not what Dieon sold Jackson State and the players he recruited. Dieon claimed he was doing this for more than business, for more than money, for more than his career.

Dieon made himself the figurehead of a movement. He grifted Jackson State and every one of the players that he lied to to get them to pass up far better offers to join him and his movement at HBCUs.

I get your point here, but nearly anyone that had a shot at a "better offer" is going with him.


donkeylipsh t1_iz1iqcf wrote

None of them signed up to be part of Deion's professional oddysey or play for Colorado.

They signed up to play for an HBCU. They signed up to be part of a movement. They signed up because Deion convinced them it was their calling to be part of something bigger than a college football team.

And now each and every player who signed up because they wanted to be part of what Deion sold them, are now having to give up that dream.


slapshots1515 t1_iz1u93b wrote

If you honestly think anyone that had “far better offers” signed with Jackson State for any other reason than that they believed Deion was capable of getting them to the next level, I have oceanside property in Kansas for sale that you should look at.

You can say all you want about Jackson State as a university, Jackson State fans, even HBCUs in general, and I can grant you it might be warranted. No college kid (Travis Hunter included) was giving up a potential multimillion dollar NFL career for a “movement.”


donkeylipsh t1_iz24oke wrote

It wasn't an either/or decision.

Deion promised them they could have the path to the NFL AND fulfill a higher mission than football.


slapshots1515 t1_iz27o30 wrote

And if you think any of those players passed up a better chance at a multimillion dollar NFL career in support of a mission that will take decades to accomplish without netting them anything, let’s talk about that oceanfront property in Kansas. Players that had the offers you’re talking about went to Jackson State for two things: NFL chances and NIL money. They can get both at Colorado.

I am making this decision so that I can light the way for others to follow, make it a little easier for the next player to recognize that HBCUs may be everything you want and more: an exciting college experience, a vital community, and a life-changing place to play football.
“I look forward to working with the iconic Deion Sanders, and especially with my fellow Tigers. Along with Coach Prime, they have made me feel like I’m already part of the team. Like I’m home. And I can’t wait to welcome the next class of top athletes into the family of HBCUs.

As for the transfers, the fact is, the first Jackson State player to enter the transfer portal didn't do that until today! So you've been lying in all your posts, and the thing you're claiming is the basis of your position, is fan-fiction you made up in your own head.

So no, there is no FACT that all these players are following Deion.

You're too blind with your rage and stupidity to realize you're presenting a logical fallacy.

The burden of proof isn't on me. You're the one who is claiming 100% of the Jackson State roster has already announced they are transferring.

Which is a lie. So you need to prove the existence of every, single, player transferring before I can point out your ignorance once again.

Sanders and Hunter have both already announced their intent to leave. If you believe it won’t be official soon, you really are as gullible as you seem. If you don’t believe it, then please argue in good faith.

If you don’t believe there will be any more-especially since Deion already said more would be coming-then it makes sense why you bought this narrative hook, line, and sinker in the first place.

If NFL and NIL is the only thing they cared about, then they never woulda gone to Jackson State to begin with.

slapshots1515 t1_iz2l1yl wrote

So it’s a pure coincidence that Hunter, the first recruit of his caliber to go to an HBCU pretty much ever, just happened to decide to do so right after NIL money became a thing with a coach who is basically one of the most marketable people on the planet purely out of the goodness of his heart to strive for HBCU’s everywhere.

You can believe it because he said a few nice things about Doug Williams and Jerry Rice, but a) if his big goal was to be HBCU Jesus, he wouldn’t have taken about ten seconds after Deion left to announce his transfer like he just did, and b) that would have been a financial disaster the likes we haven’t seen since people were giving Bernie Madoff money.

I get it man: you really seem to want these kids to be these altruistic crusaders. They’re not, and it’s ok that they’re not. I’m not even saying Deion didn’t sell it that way, and I’m not saying the kids don’t believe it some. But when the chips are down, NFL and NIL is what matters to them.


donkeylipsh t1_iz56x6y wrote

Your entire argument rest on the belief that Deion fucking Sanders is the only person on earth who can get these kids NIL or to the NFL. And that is absolute bullshit.

If Deion Sanders was so good, he wouldn't have to have gone to an HBCU. If Deion Sanders was so good, he wouldn't have to go to 1-11 Colorado.

These kids had offers to other schools and coaches who are FAR better at securing NFL roster spots and NIL money.

And every one of those players who had those opportunities passed them up to join Deions crusade.

There is no coincidence that some dude sold young kids that building HBCU's is a calling from god, a mission for black men to stand in solidarity and lead their race during the peak of racial unrest in America.


slapshots1515 t1_iz59bzr wrote

It absolutely does not, if you actually read instead of wish.

There’s about one kid your comment really applies to, Travis Hunter. Travis Hunter who, as a DB, gets to be the premier protege of a guy considered among the best DBs of all time. Travis Hunter, who as a result of this got a ton of publicity and now gets to play at a Power 5 school anyways. Travis Hunter who, for all of his talk about Jerry Rice and Walter Payton, immediately jumped ship as soon as Deion left.

If all these kids cared so damn much about reinventing HBCUs and being a leader for their race they would be staying at Jackson State. Instead, they are all leaving with Deion. It was always about Deion.

I’m sorry you bought into the narrative so hard, but that’s what it was: a narrative, a sell job, a recruiting tool. Sure, I don’t believe either Deion or these kids want to hurt HBCUs, but if it really was about what you say it was, they wouldn’t be leaving.

Making people into something they aren’t is a dangerous thing. Again, I tell you that these kids weren’t going to be the saviors of HBCUs, but that’s ok. Honestly, what they’ve already done for HBCUs is at least a step in the right direction, and now others need to step up and move it forward.

But, you are trying to make a bunch of 18-21 year old kids into holy warriors that they just aren’t. And if you do that, you’ll often find reality is disappointing. All of this-Deion jumping ship for a P5 and taking all the good kids with him-was utterly inevitable and completely predictable to anyone not drinking kool-aid.

The college football system doesn't need another bloated, scandal-plagued program built on the skill of young black men and supported by spoiled, rich, white people. It needs black athletes to build and support more HBCUs and help make those into athletic powerhouses, elevating those programs to National prominence.

He had a chance to give back to College football what it gave him. And he could have had a legacy much richer than just a Super Bowl winner and Hall of Famer. He could have been the Bear Bryant of Black College Football, held in the same reverence as John Madden. Thats a legacy.

There was something bigger there that he traded in, a legacy as the usher for a new age of seeing these underserved programs flourish and get the recognition they deserve.

Black kids have been helping build these football juggernauts so that white kids can brag about their school. What about those black colleges and universities that have been looked over? He could have elevated that whole system but chose to chase glitz, glam and drama. He could have helped build something bigger.
