My man Coach Prime!
Numbers don’t lie, and judging by the latest ticket sales, there’s a high demand to witness Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders potentially turn the University of Colorado Buffaloes football program from total losers into national champions.
Colorado sold a total of 11,273 single-game tickets Wednesday, setting a school record for the largest number sold in one day. With their season-ticket sales, the Buffaloes have already sold out, the first time the university has done so since 1996. The Buffaloes’ spring game — which featured snowy and cold weather — also sold out.
Ticket sales were so intense Wednesday that it even crashed Colorado’s website:

Deion Sanders really is that guy.
For the most part, I see love being thrown Deion Sanders‘ way, but there’s the occasional comment about how Coach Prime’s ego is too big and all that blah, blah, blah, but I’m like … how can you not love an ego like this?

And then on top of that, it’s backed up by near undefeated seasons as a head coach (and as you see, landing top recruits) after winning a couple of Super Bowls as a player. It’s not like this man can’t walk the walk. Deion is gloriously flamboyant and literally backs everything up with his Midas touch.

I just don’t know how anybody couldn’t like this guy — shoutout to Coach Prime!
