The Denver Post's Sean Keeler isn't buying that Shelomi Sanders' decision to transfer from Jr Payne's women's basketball program has nothing to do with her father, Colorado football head coach Deion Sanders -- insinuating that Coach Prime's youngest child may know that her father isn't long for Boulder.

"Does Shelomi Sanders know something we don’t?
Can’t shake the question," Keeler prefaced before saying, "We’ve tried. For days now.
And yeah, yeah, yeah, the tinfoil hat types on the Grading The Week team saw the Chip Diller reaction from CU insiders to remain calm. That all is well.
That the reported decision this past week for Shelomi, daughter of Buffs football coach Deion Sanders and a reserve on CU’s Sweet 16 basketball program this past season, to enter the transfer portal was strictly a playing-time decision.

"That we shouldn’t read into it.
We’ve hemmed. We’ve hawed. And you know what? Sorry. Not really buying it."

For any CU sleuths out there trying to connect the dots, Coach Prime revealed a very damning thing about being in the city of Boulder: he doesn't like the local delicacy, marijuana, and doesn't want students to be partaking during games with children around.

"Who's smoking up in here? Good lord," Sanders said during his book tour (h/t The Athletic's David Ubben). "I've never been high, but I've been close here, being the coach at Colorado.

"I don't know what y'all do, but between those 40s (the student section at Folsom Field), it goes down. Jesus Christ. We got kids in here. It was so blatant one game, I thought they were doing it on the sideline. 'Check the bench! Who's got the fat one?"

Some might say the signs are pointing to an exit from Colorado for Sanders even if he'd never say it himself. The 2024 season feels like a bellwether for the future, because without his sons or daughter in Boulder, and without Travis Hunter, what is there left for him?
