First year head coach of the colorado buffaloes Deion Sanders was on Radio Row at Super Bowl LVII last week, and «Prime Time» had a lot to say.
When asked if recently retired quarterback Tom Brady record seven Super Bowls would ever break, Sanders said no one will be willing to make the sacrifices necessary to overcome it.
«This culture is not built like that,» Sanders told USA Today Sports. «This culture wants every penny it can get. So you have to sacrifice some things to be in that position, and I don’t think this culture is ready to make those kinds of sacrifices.»

Sanders also joined «The Rich Eisen Show» and his comments on what he looks for in recruits were illuminating.
«Well, we have different attributes. Smart, tough, quick, disciplined with character. Now, quarterbacks are different.» Sanders told Eisen last week. «We want mother, father. Double father. We want that child to be 3.5 [GPA] and up. Because it has to be smart. Not bad decisions off the field at all. Because it has to be a leader of men.

Sanders said he’s looking for something similar attributes in offensive linemenbut his criteria are different for the defensive side of football.
«Defensive linemen are the complete opposite. Single mom, trying to get it, she’s on free lunch,» Sanders continued. «I’m talking about just trying to make it. He’s trying to rescue Mom. Like Mom just made the flight. And I want him to go find him.»
«It’s a whole different attribute that you’re looking for at different positions. And we’ve got those things just on record. We know what we want and we got it.»
