Mike Farrell Sports' Scott Salomon doesn't believe the word "humility" and Colorado football head coach Deion Sanders belong in the same sentence -- unless, presumably, the word "isn't" is in between -- in a criticism of Coach Prime's claim that he wants more privacy.

"Where is the humility that generally accompanies a desire for privacy? Humility and Coach Prime do not belong in the same sentence," Salomon prefaced before saying, "They just cannot co-exist together.

"Colorado will leave the PAC-12 for the Big XII next season, and the spotlight will continue to shine on the Buffaloes and Coach Prime. You can bet that the humility will be non-existent and that Deion will waive his right to privacy for the next interview that comes down the road."

Coach Prime will not get privacy as long as he's coaching his sons at Colorado football

With one son leading the offense under center, and his other sporting the very number (21) that he once donned, Coach Prime's Colorado Buffaloes are a family affair. And the media cannot get enough of a sports family in control of a team.

And who can blame them? The obvious nepotism angle is omnipresent, and the juxtaposition of the Texas-raised Sanders family and Boulder is a fascinating one.

As long as Shedeur Sanders is running the Buffs offense and Shilo Sanders is disrupting opposing offenses in CU's secondary, Coach Prime will get attention; not to mention the No. 1 overall 2022 recruit Travis Hunter, who followed Deion from Jackson State to Colorado, two schools he likely wouldn't have gone to, or even considered, if they weren't "Prime Time" certified.

In 2025, there may be less of spotlight shone on Sanders, though certainly not if he ups and leaves Boulder to take his act to a southern college town. Don't bet on it, though.

And definitely don't bet against Sanders welcoming it if the Buffs are winning.
