Deion Sanders' Sunglasses Have Become an Entire Storyline

Colorado Buffaloes head coach Deion Sanders has generated plenty of storylines, but the drama around his sunglasses didn't come from him.

Ahead of their Week 3 matchup against the Colorado State Rams, Colorado Buffaloes head coach Deion Sanders gifted all players a pair of sunglasses following negative remarks made about Sanders by Rams head coach Jay Norvell.

In his second year as the Rams head coach, Norvell had this to say about Coach Prime on The Coach's Show.

"When I talk to grownups, I take my hat and my glasses off. That's what my mother taught me."

The Rams are more than three-touchdown underdogs ahead of this game, and, of course, Sanders saw what Norvell said and let his players know about it, saying that Norvell has given them "ammunition" and "made it personal."

Appearing on ESPN's First Take, Buffaloes quarterback Shedeur Sanders said, "You gotta be a fool to do that," in response to Norvell's comments.

As you probably know, Shedeur is one of Deion's sons. Another one of his sons, Shilo, also plays for the Buffaloes.

So, going up against the Rams, it's reasonable to expect Shedeur to have extra motivation to torch the Rams defense.

The Rams are 0-1, losing their home opener to Washington State, allowing 50 points to them.

Through the season's first two games, Shedeur has 903 passing yards, six passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown, and zero interceptions.

Appearing on The Pat McAfee Show, which is now on ESPN, Coach Prime gifted McAfee the same shades he gave to the players.

ESPN's College GameDay is on the scene and will be live from there on Saturday.

The Buffaloes host the Rams this weekend on Saturday, September 16, at 10:00 pm ET live from Folsom Field in Boulder, Colorado.
