Deion Sanders won't have a hard time making Colorado's rivalry game this week against Colorado State feel "personal."

Rams coach Jay Norvell took a shot at Sanders' habit of wearing a hat and/or sunglasses during news conferences, saying Wednesday during his weekly radio show: "I don't care if they hear this in Boulder. I told them [ESPN] -- I took my hat off, and I took my glasses off. I said, 'When I talk to grown-ups, I take my hat and my glasses off. That's what my mother taught me.'"

The comments drew applause from the live audience and the show's host, Colorado State football radio voice Brian Roth.
