He received some criticism for how he was so open with players from the old regime as he encouraged them to enter the transfer portal and look for playing time elsewhere.In an interview with “60 Minutes” on Sunday, Sanders was pressed about whether he believed the so-called “scorched Earth policy” was good for the sport. The Pro Football Hall of Famer said it wasn’t his job to lie the student-athletes on the team.“I think truth is good for the kids. We’re so busy lying we don’t even recognize the truth no more in society. We want everybody to feel good. That’s not the way life is,” he said. “Now, it is my job to make sure I have what we need to win. That makes a lot of people feel good – winning does.”Deion Sanders hugs a player during the Rocky Mountain Showdown.

He said he came to the “conclusion that a multitude of them couldn’t help us get to where we wanted to go” and if players were affected by his words – then they weren’t for this team either.“If you went for that, if you were able to let words run you off, you ain’t for us because we’re an old-school staff. We coach hard. We coach tough. We’re disciplined. If you’re allowing verbiage to run you off because you don’t feel secure with your ability – you ain’t for us,” he said.Colorado head coach Deion Sanders walks the perimeter of Folsom Field before an NCAA college football game against Nebraska, Saturday, Sept. 9, 2023, in Boulder.
