As the days go by, the doubters of Colorado football coach Deion Sanders are dropping like flies. At the same time, the bandwagon for the Buffaloes, Coach Prime, and the entire program, is growing at a rapid rate.
One name it appears we can add to that bandwagon is host of FS1’s Undisputed, Skip Bayless. But the praise from Bayless went beyond merely showing love to Sanders for the job he’s done in recent years as a college football coach—Bayless’s respect goes all the way to Sanders’s NFL days.
Bayless answered a fan’s question about whether Sanders would fit as the future Cowboys head coach. Unsurprisingly, the answer from Bayless gave Coach Prime his flowers in a big way.
“Would he work as the Cowboy coach, in a vacuum? Oh, he would be sensational. I’m talking Super Bowls, plural, sensational. I believe with all my heart and soul in Deion Sanders’s ability to do anything in life, but especially to coach,” Bayless said on Fox Sports’s The Skip Bayless Show. “College football, pro football, if he puts his mind to it, he will beat you. I used to say about Tom Brady, that’s one man I don’t bet against. Deion Sanders is another man I don’t bet against.”
Sanders, who took over a Colorado program that went 1-11 season in 2022, has the Buffaloes off to a 2-0 start with wins over TCU and Nebraska.
