Deion Sanders tells sons ‘y’all ain’t going nowhere’ in response to NFL talk

Head coach Deion Sanders has his No. 19 Colorado Buffaloes at 3-0 as they travel to Eugene, Oregon, to take on No. 10 Oregon in Week 4. 

He’s gone undefeated with his two sons starring on both sides of the ball.

Quarterback Shedeur Sanders is second in the country in passing yards (1,251) and seventh in passing touchdowns (10). Shilo Sanders is second on the team in tackles (19) and returned an interception for a touchdown against Colorado State.

On Tuesday, Sanders condemned those who had reportedly sent death threats to Blackburn after the hit. 

Henry Blackburn is a good player who played a phenomenal game,” he said. “He made a tremendous hit on Travis on the sideline. You can call it dirty, you can call it ‘He was just playing the game of football.’ 

“But whatever it was, it does not constitute that he should be receiving death threats. This is still a young man trying to make it in life. A guy that is trying to live his dream and hopefully graduate with honors or a degree, committed to excellence and go to the NFL. He does not deserve a death threat over a game.”

Colorado would achieve their first 4-0 start since 2020 if they defeat Oregon on Saturday.
