CU football coach Deion Sanders is 100% deserving of being named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year. Coach Prime took a team that was all but dead nationally and put the Buffs back on the map. He made them relevant. The record wasn’t great, but Deion said he knew the Buffs weren’t close to where they needed to be.

Dan-O, duly impressed

Kiz: Well, there’s no doubting Prime is a sportsperson of our time, where clicks count more than touchdowns and it’s not whether you win or lose, but how many eyeballs watch on television.
