  • Of course Steve A. thinks Dion should of gotten the FSU job. Are you serious? Only because he’s black. He’s the biggest racist next to Shannon “Marble Mouth” Sharp. There is no way Dion should’ve gotten the FSU job He shouldn’t have the job he has now. Just because of his name. He should be coaching middle school or high school.

  • When you're a HF caliber person these things are going to happen! Everyone no matter who it is will take chances to get something from you! It's just one jackazz who did this.. Let's just move on! JSU!

  • completely disagree with SAS, Primetime got all of his things stolen why wouldn't he keep it 100? This was an opportunistic criminal taking advantage of some clearly shotty stadium security. A crime should be called a crime regardless of the gender, race, height or religion of the person who committed it. If a parent wants to keep their child from going to play for a HOF coach at a historic HBCU because of two thefts then so be it lol

  • Black people help perpetuate their own demise more than anyone else, here this man goes to an HBCU and puts it on the map, first time an HBCU school has been in the top 60 of a recruiting class, and its his own kind that’s gonna run him out and put them back as a nobody school, had he went to a normal university this kind of thing wouldn’t be happening, very sad for black people and HBCU’s, they won’t ever advance in society while these kind of things are going on

  • so, dont report crime.. got it. I am not sure how their funds look compared to some, but they have a 10 year deal for funding thanks to the last administration for HBCUs. Its sad that people steal, and hopefully they are punished to the extent needed, and furthermore, hopefully it doesnt happen again. Deion could do great things as a coach I believe. The man knows the game and has more than enough love for the game. I hope his tenure there is a good one, and that someone sees that he can handle a school like FSU.

  • ? Aren't Black Americans tired of being 🤐 about things involving themselves and other people of race?? So if Deion is to keep quiet and handle it different, shouldn't all wrongs be kept quiet so people wouldn't think that stepping out your home's front door is a mistake???

  • I don’t like this take. This is the second time someone has stolen from him since being there. To me this is holding the city of Jackson accountable and showing them “we’re stronger if we stand together”. It’s always a bad look how somebody handles something until ur put in that situation. And if u have love and respect for HBCUs then u should call it how u see it Stephen A.

  • I disagree with Stephen A Smith. I am an alumni of alcorn state university... JSU is ASU biggest rival. We play them at the end of the year every year...... Sanders could be a powerful tool to not only put JSU and ASU on the map.. .. But put the entire SWAC on the map. They better take care of that man long story short. If people robbed you when you bringing national attention to a hbcu program then the people around you need to get their act together and stop stealing

  • I'm glad he did it the way he did it. It puts the school on notice that this kind of behavior is present and will not be tolerated. This also lets people know that Jackson, Mississippi is a VERY POOR city and state for that matter. This provides context to how Deion and every recruit will have to conduct themselves in a city that does not necessarily see this as an opportunity to better themselves in the correct way but take shortcuts. I can also tell you that not everyone is happy about Deion coming to town, mainly because he will hold everyone in that University and Town accountable. It is an interesting experiment.

  • It’s not Deion’s job to cover up for JSU. He owes them nothing, they owe him everything. If anything he should be pissed that the school is trying to hide or cover the incident and subvert him when the school should be trying to investigate the situation and stand behind the truth and what is right. They’re lucky to have Deion as their coach.
