Deion Sanders was not only ripped for his rap song being as bad as his son Shedeur's song "Perfect Timing" by OutKick's David Hookstead, but his focus on the Colorado football program following a 4-8 season in 2023 was also questioned.

"Colorado and Sanders finished an abysmal 1-8 in the team's final nine games to finish the season 4-8," Hookstead prefaced before saying, "You'd think that the only kind of content you'd see coming out of Boulder ahead of week one would be related to football. Well, you'd be wrong.

"Well Off Media, which is run by Deion Sanders Jr., released a video showing the Colorado coach in a recording studio rapping a song that he appears to have written. To put it politely, the song is absolutely terrible. It's every bit as bad as his sonShedeurattempting to rap."

Sure, Coach Prime used the oft-rhymed "stressed" and "blessed," but his voice is actually a great fit with the rap genre and his line delivery is far from terrible. He's not the next Scarface, but when it comes to his song, it ain't all bad.

Deion Sanders' off-field pursuits will never be respected until Colorado football is a winning program

College football culture has always been about grinding to the bone working, whether you are a player, a coach, a scout, or otherwise, and Sanders disrupts that narrative by shunning visits that aren't in Boulder and enjoying his life as a celebrity off the field.

If CU administration is cool with it, which they are, it shouldn't be a problem to anyone but Buffs fans. Even then, Coach Prime and Co. brought Colorado an identical record in year one to Karl Dorrell's best in a non-pandemic season.

Still, until Sanders has CU winning, everything he does off the field will be heavily scrutinized because that's not, nor has never been, how college football coaches have acted before achieving any meaningful success.
