Before Saturday night’s game between the Colorado State Rams and the Colorado Buffaloes, head coaches Jay Norvell and Deion Sanders got into a little back-and-forth with their comments in the media beginning when Norvell called out Sanders for what he wears during press conferences. And now, Sanders is addressing it.

After Colorado defeated Colorado State 43-35 in double overtime on Saturday night, Deion Sanders addressed the controversy with Jay Norvell as well as their cordial handshake after the game.

“I know Shedeur kind of got in between us,” Sanders said according to On3. “I can be petty if they’re petty, but I ain’t got time for that. I’m on to bigger things. I’m happy for the brother. I really am. I’m happy that they fought and played a good game. I’m happy that he’s a head coach. I’m happy for any brother that’s doing it and successful, man. I truly am.”

Sanders made it clear that he felt that he had to respond after Norvell had some rather personal criticism, but he wishes him the best going forward.

“I don’t know where all this stuff comes from. I have to respond because my mama taught me that,” Sanders said. “You ain’t just gonna attack me and I’m gonna sit back and not say anything. But, I’m happy for that dude, man. I don’t know him, but I’m happy for him.

“I wish the best for him. I really do. My success ain’t got nothing do with his, so why would I not want him to succeed? I don’t know how people get down like that. My blessings don’t got nothing to do with his blessings.”

That should put an end to their beef.
