New Colorado Buffaloes head football coach Deion Sanders has faced a lot of criticism since leaving Jackson State for the Pac 12 Conference.
Many folks believe that Sanders, who has turned over more than 75 percent of its roster from 2022 using the transfer portal and other means, is a future disaster in the making.
Naturally, Coach Prime is having none of that.
This just comes off as unbelievably and unnecessarily arrogant. You’ve never even been an FBS coach before and actin like ur nick saban lol. Who doesn’t know Pat Narduzzi that’s been around college football? Just a bonehead thing to say https://t.co/143Rszrw26

Case in point: Deion Sanders recently sent a warning message to college football that sounded very familiar to many Nebraska football fans, giving them great joy.
“They [his critics] just want to take a shot at me, and I’m good with that … this is their opportunity to take a shot. But they better shoot now, because in a moment you’re not going to be able to shoot,” Sanders told Joel Klatt this week.

So why would Deion Sanders sending his critics a message like that make Nebraska fans chuckle?
Because it sounds an awful lot like this…
That was Scott Frost in July of 2018 before his first season taking over a 4-8 Huskers team.
Frost’s records as Nebraska’s head football coach in his tenure there? 4–8, 5-7, 3-5, 3-9, and 1-2 for a grand total of 16–31 (a .340 winning percentage).
The similarity in Sanders’ quote to Frost’s not go unnoticed by Cornhuskers fans.
“Sounds like Scott frost. Close to same resume as well except Frosty had much more P5/FBS experience,” another fan tweeted.
Lol we’ve seen how this plays out firsthand 💀 https://t.co/DUULvzSiD5

“Husker fans does this over confidence sound familiar?” tweeted another Nebraska fan. “Learn from history or be doomed to repeat it.”
Nebraska and Colorado face one another on Sept. 9. Should be fun, especially on Twitter, regardless of the outcome.
