Coach Prime Don't Play

 Even on the little things.

That's encouraging. For years I've been dismayed by the fact that players (SEC notably) decide what color sock to wear on which foot, which arm bands, do rags, head bands, colored wrap down one arm, shoes and signature eye makeup to wear...typically to set themselves apart instead of adhering to a standard set by the coach.

Bear Bryant, Johnny Vaught and Jackie Sherrill would not have put up with all this 'self image' crap.

I read this morning that Sanders also benched his son for being late to practice.

How many coaches 45 years ago would have put up with 'Deion The Prime' bullshit antics and flair during his playing days?

And in this clip, "Prime" is wearing a knock-off of the famous Joe Namath Yukon jacket with the white faux, Polar bear-skin collar. Will rewatch to see which version of neck-bling dominates his chest.

Coach Prime is all about Coach Prime and only Coach Prime. Ask JSU.

This little piggy went to market said...

I’m so glad he took his narcissistic show on to the next town.

"Coach Prime is all about Coach Prime and only Coach Prime"

110% Dude is a showboat and all about his brand. He's playing to the crowd and they are eating this up. He's going to social media himself into a power 5 job and he used JSU to start his parlay. He'll shit on Colorado next, hide and watch.

Prime is a winner. The JSU sour grapes are no surprise. Jackson doesn't emulate success, it embraces failure.

Have to wonder if Coach told him to wear the socks so he could film it and throw him out of the room.

Neon Deon is full of ISH. He's all about himself. He told that big lie about his valuables being stolen when actually one of his staff locked it up for him. He told it all over social media but he never corrected the statement when the truth came out. Sounds like a set up. Who brings that kind of cash and jewelry to work with them in the first damn place???? He'll pull the same crap in Colorado when he doesn't get his way

Goodness Gracious! Seems like a lot of ALPHA Envy in Jackson Area today.

10:21 AM - He put in a solid 3 years, paid his dues at JSU, and left it better than he found it. I hadn't heard about the theft not being legit, but his son's truck was broken into, and there was at least one homicide on campus while he was there. Nothing quite like working in and commuting through the lawless and mis-managed City of Jackson. Going to Boulder was a no-brainer, and well-deserved IMHO.

It is so much fun reading all of the pissed off posts from both sides regarding Sanders. Funny as hell.

So Deion Sanders is a self-promoter. Big deal. If he weren't trying to be a boss football coach he'd probably be a boss politician. Same thing. Guys who don't self-promote end up coaching high school football in Podunk or sitting on some board of aldermen in Mayberry. There are lots of top athletes who want to go along for the ride and some of this lessons will actually lead to success. So who is he hurting? Certainly not JSU.

It's funny that anyone who witnessed the last three seasons of the Sherrill era at Mississippi State would make statements about what Jackie Sherrill would and would not allow.

Anonymous said...

11:11 - If it will make you feel better, substitute the name Croom for the name Sherrill. He was a disciplinarian, but Sherrill's record was better. Neither of them took shit from players.

Meanwhile, what about the discipline of your boy, Luke, up at TSUN? Why are you backing out of the room, red-faced?

Yea he’s a real loser. Maybe the GOAT of D backs. When used as a receiver or return man made big time plays. Oh in his spare time was a very good MLB player. Don’t remember any headlines regarding him being an abusive husband or father. Open about his religious faith. Expects his players to meet high standards in their dress and conduct.

Kingfish said...

So what if he promotes himself? So what if he leaves Colorado for a better job. To do that, he first has to win and win big. 500 ball isn't going to cut it for a decent SEC promotion.

As for JSU, the record speaks for itself. They won and went undefeated in his last regular season. He got them a five star recruit and brought much more attention to the program from the public, media, and the all important scouts. He brought Game Day to JSU. What more could he have done for them? Seriously.

Deion is certainly a winner, no doubt.

Doesn't change the fact he's a flamboyant, self-centered, scripted male diva. These characteristics aren't mutually exclusive.

Anonymous said...

What's to argue about. Both can be true - He's a self-promoter who did a great job at JSU. No need to disagree with another person's opinion just to state your view.

A coach must have rules and they should be his rules, not pne of the players imposing their will. Many players at college level and really full of themselves and a handful for a coach who is not a stern disciplanarin.

Who else expects everyone to toe the line?

Ever heard of Nick Saban?

Who else is guilty of shameless promotion?

Just about any other top level coach.

Yep I am one of those who liked the guy when he was at JSU. I still do with him in Boulder.

One last thing - Boulder, CO is a great town in a great area. He should try to enjoy himself for however long he is there. Accepting rule breakers on his team would be a good way to invite coaching problems he doesn't need.

I just can't stand a guy who's an arrogant egotistical narcissist who insists he's God's gift to the world.

An NFL Hall of Famer moved to Jackson, took JSU to an undefeated regular season, brought ESPN to JSU, then moved on after Jackson became the homicide capitol of the U.S. and the city failed to provide running water during home games.

Only the City of Jackson could spin that into being the victim, and blame the guy for leaving.

This is exactly why he 'took along' the two female students who he considers trainers. His ego demands the instant gratification of applause from admiring followers.

His inner insecurities demand that he trust no quarterback other than his son and that he have a bevy of admiring subordinates.

A sound principal of management is to hire good people and get out of their way. Deion will never mature to that level.

12:20 there are a lot of comparisons between Trump and Sanders. Both are very good at what they do, but both aren't scared to tell you about it either. It's a turn off and to me and overshadows their strongpoints.

What an Idiot, wait until they see how that Daddy Ball works. When they lose everyone is going to get the blame but his kids .

@12.43 Jackson was murder capital before Prime arrived. He lived on big country estate just like rich white folk. He was just acting black and living a white life while conning JSU.

Anonymous said...

5:19, If memory serves, I believe St. Louis was the reigning homicide capitol when Sanders arrived.

I’d like to know what you mean by “living a white life.” No warrants? No baby-mammas chasing him for unpaid child support? Too many white folks support him? Not kissing Chokwe’s ass? Please elaborate on what keepin it real means to you.

You are sad losers!

7:06. You know 5:19s right.. you can act like you don’t know.. but you do know.. quit acting dumb.

Discipline is not a bad word! said...

"And one way to maintain discipline is to shoot a man every now and then"

That's a movie line.

Anonymous said...

I too what 'living a white life means'. I recall Michelle telling a room full of little girls that when she was in school, she was accused of being 'too white' for making good grades. What was the message.

Does 'living the white life' mean being able to afford a nice piece of land with a real nice house on the land? Which of us, of whatever color, wouldn't like that opportunity?

Anonymous said...

Deion's term at JSU had nothing to do with "living white" or conning the program which he elevated to crazy heights. But his exit did expose the jealousy and self-hate (see 5:19) of some that cripples the Black community when one achieves a level of academic or economic success. Deion did good, simple as that. Good luck to him.

A true JSU fan.

I'm guessing 5:19, 8:00 and 9:47 are upper-middle class youngsters who think they know what it means to be "street."

Anyone who really knows would not want to go back, but probably can't help it because that's who and what they are.

I explained it, but Ole Fish didn’t like it

6:16 I hate it when that happens..

No doubt some of the best (and most enlightening) comments are left on the cutting floor.

Anonymous said...

Not to disagree with Fish's Thread Title, but, yes, Prime DO play.

He play us all every time he speak and every time he post up one of his staged video recordings.

What else a playa gonna do but PLAY?

Anonymous said...

3:54 How has Prime's "playing" hurt us? What did we lose? Give it a rest and move on.

Anonymous said...

YOU move on 8:56 - I didn't say or imply that his 'playing us' hurt us. I simply contradicted the title of the thread, which is 'he don't play'. Yep. He DO play.

It's a blog of opinion. Post yours and ignore mine.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
