Colorado State head coach Jay Norvell's wife took a shot at Shedeur Sanders following the release of Amazon Prime Video’s documentary series, Coach Prime, which showed the post-game confrontation Norvell had with Deion Sanders after the latter's Colorado football program downed CSU during the September 16 Rocky Mountain Showdown at Folsom Field -- calling Coach Prime's youngest son a "B", short for...well we all know what it's short for.

“Shadeur [sic] acted like a B when Jay turned his back to his dad, and held up his watch," Kim Norvell wrote in a now-deleted tweet (h/t Sports Illustrated).

Kim would insinuate that there was more to her husband's brief moment with Coach Prime that wasn't shown on the Amazon show, which showed Jay denying he was taking shots at Deion's mother, Connie Knight, while Sanders was unconvinced and repeatedly claimed that Norvell was.

It's hard not to see Norvell's personal shot at Knight during his September 14 rant about Coach Prime during his show.

“I sat down with ESPN today, and I don’t care if they hear it in Boulder,” Norvell prefaced before saying, "I told them, I took my hat off and I took my glasses off. I said when I talk to grown-ups, I take my hat off and my glasses off. That’s what my mother taught me.”

Shedeur Sanders called Jay Norvell a fool before Colorado State-Colorado football matchup

Shedeur called Norvel a fool during a September 15 appearance on ESPN's First Take, a day before his Buffs snuck by the Rams in a 43-35 double-overtime classic.

“You gotta be a fool to do that,” Shedeur said from Boulder, where the show filmed live on location (h/t The New York Post). “You got his son playing quarterback, his other son playing safety. Come on now, you’re asking for it. It’s just extra motivation, that’s what it is."

The way the game played out, it seemed Colorado State had the extra motivation. The Rams held a halftime lead and CSU defensive back Henry Blackburn took out Travis Hunter for three weeks' worth of games with a dirty hit.
