Deion Sanders Cursed At By Alabama State Players As He Did His Pregame Walk

Deion Sanders Cursed At By Alabama State Players As He Did His Pregame Walk

BIG DRIP /  Sports   /   Oct 10th, 2022   /   0 COMMENTS

Things got pretty heated on Saturday afternoon down in Montgomery Alabama on as the Alabama State Hornets hosted defending SWAC champion Jackson State Tigers for their annual homecoming game. While the Tigers won the game on the field 26-12 to improve to 5-0 on the season, it was the postgame fireworks that garnered all the attention following Saturday’s result. 

 

As the two coaches met at the 50-yard-line, Hornets head coach Eddie Robinson wasn’t for the pleasantries beyond a quick handshake. He even pulled away from Coach Prime as he tried to give a him a bro-hug. Robinson says it was a week of disrespect from Sanders and Jackson State and he wasn’t looking to be cool with Coach Prime, because as he put it “they ain’t friends.”

 

There were some other remarks exchanged between the two coaches, Robinson even said He ain’t  SWAC, I’m SWAC. But one has to wonder what Robinson will say during Monday’s SWAC coaches media availability after seeing the video of his players calling Sanders names and even saying F- Jackson as the Pro Football Hall of Famer did his routine pregame walk around the stadium. You can even hear one Hornets player call Sanders a B***h a** n***a. 

 

No way Robinson can let his players get away with that type of language towards an opposing coach is uncalled and classless. Things were testy all week down in Montgomery after some comments Sanders made about the Hornets scheduling the Tigers for their homecoming. 

 

Money Game Comments Were Heard Loud And Clear:

 

Earlier in the week during his media availability Sanders talked about how his team handled its lone by week of the season, and what he thought of being the opponent for another Alabama school’s homecoming. 

 

“It was brilliant to invite us there because, you’re going to make some money. But what comes with money? All money ain’t good money.  But we gon’ learn.”

 

Those comments obviously rubbed Robinson and his team the wrong way and they made sure to let Sanders know about it. But the way they went about it was done with very little taste and class. 

 

Last season, Coach Prime and the Tigers throttled the Alabama A&M Bulldogs at their homecoming 61-15, ending a semi-feud between Bulldogs head coach Connell Maynor and Sanders, that began during the SWAC’s abbreviated spring season. 

 

Should JSU Schedule Alabama State For Their HC In 2023? 

 

Following the loss you kinda get what Coach Robinson was getting as it pertains to a quick handshake and be done with it. But all the extra antics and with his players hurling insults at Coach Prime must be talked about and handled appropriately. You have to believe if any of JSUs players were overheard saying things like the Hornets were spewing, Sanders would do some serious reprimanding as he did last season when his team got into a postgame scuffle with rival Southern as they clinched the SWAC East title. 

 

Robinson doesn’t want Sanders to leave for a bigger job, which he won’t. He also wants to be the Tigers opponent in Jackson for their homecoming in 2023. 

 

“We going to play them next year in Jackson, and I pray they put us for their homecoming.”

 

This rivalry is just heating up, but the Hornets will need to win on the field and not just with words.
