CU Buffaloes, 36, Nebraska
Cornhuskers 14. The biggest story in all of
sports, Prime’s Buffalo Soldiers defied the
highly predictable gutter-low expectations!
things that have never been done, and that
makes people uncomfortable,” coach Sanders
said. “When you see a confident Black man,
sitting up there talking his talk, walking
his walk, coaching 75% African-Americans in
the locker room, that’s kind of threatening
(to others). Oh, they don’t like that. Guess
what? We gonna consistently do what we do
because I’m here and ain’t going nowhere.
And I’m about to get comfortable in a
Those are the words of Coach
Deion Prime Sanders, who unapologetically
symbolizes audacious Black Power. And his
quest for equality, respect, and power, well
it’s scaring some folks to death.
Deion Sanders unabashedly
personifies intrepid “Black Power.”
Coach Prime used his platform
to tell the burning bush truth: “Black
success, excellence, and power, in virtually
any endeavor, make the entrenched WASP
Those who claim to be
colorblind sports fans, yet they have no
regard for Black players or coaches and would
prefer to maintain the entrenched and highly
exploitative systemic racism entrenched in our
Pimpin’ ain’t easy!
A slice of Coach Prime’s
critics, the ones so deeply invested in
maintaining a broken system of racism and
unfairness, are motivated by nothing more than
their own fear and hatred. Despite their
desperate attempt to continue their contorted
and contrived way of doing business, Coach
Prime threatens their contrived monopolization
of the collegiate and professional coaching
America, White America,
mainstream White Americans, hypocritically
turn a blind eye to injustice by supporting
Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Tommy Turberville,
and a Republican Party that is driven by the
oppressive force of White supremacy. These are
the same people who enjoy the athleticism and
artistry of Black players when it comes to
their entertainment, but the moment these
players attempt to use their fame and platform
to push forward social progress, their voices
are stifled, and their message is deemed
irrelevant. This is a prime example of racism
at its worst.
The second win of the newborn
season, over Nebraska, was an example of “true
grit.” Winning ugly….
Improvising, adapting, and overcoming, getting into a back alley
brawl and beatin’ down the big farm boy bully,
responding to adversity.
Putting all those myths of
inferiority to rest.
Coach Prime was supposed to go
into Texas Christian University’s house and
crumble last weekend, and then fall to
Nebraska a few days ago. He was never given
the benefit of the doubt, never considered a
legitimate contender by the
conservative/Confederate White fan base,
sports writer, and Sin City aficionados.
Instead of satisfying their
gutter-low expectations, “Sanders and Sons”
have shaken up the whole wide world of sports.
Instead of a junkyard, Prime’s got a field of
His accomplishments on the
gridiron, as both an iconic player and
up-and-coming pigskin guru, were supposed to
mean nothing when facing an accomplished
mastermind head coach like the alleged “Negro
Whisperers” across the field.
Coach Prime wasn’t supposed to
have the ability and expertise to assemble a
team capable of hanging with the Big Boys and
their gridiron mastermind. They were supposed
to lack talent, structure, and discipline, but
they didn’t. Deion has impeccable athletic
gladiator credentials: 3 time all-American in
football, 2 time all ACC in baseball, member
of the track relay team that won ACC, all pro
every year between 91 and 99. He hit .588 in
the ‘92 World Series with 5 stolen bases,
breathed life into HBCU football and Jackson
State, and as we live and breathe he just
shook up the world of collegiate football.
This is the Buffalo Soldiers Keepin’
All the Receipts Tour; Shedeur Sanders is defying all
the gutter-low expectations assigned to a
Black Field General - after all, he’d only
excelled in the “Negro Leagues.”
See Satchel Paige.
Boys, tell us all, what does
Black crow taste like?
