Deion Sanders breaks his silence on the robbery that took place during his team’s game at UCLA over the weekend.
We recently reported that his Colorado team was robbed while they were on the field playing against UCLA. After losing their game, the team returned to their locker room to find that their jewelry and other valuable items were missing.
In his weekly news conference, Sanders addressed the incident and said, “I think that’s a travesty and I would expect the NCAA to do something about that. These are college kids. I’m pretty sure they don’t think about insurance at this point, at this juncture in their life. We’ve talked about NIL and how to really maintain their finances, we’ve pretty much given them financial planners and given them the resources for that. But the insurance part of it, we slipped. And we didn’t really educate them on that.”
He continued, “All that stuff should be replaced. This is the Rose Bowl. It’s at the grandaddy off them all, right? I’m sure grandaddy has some money. Grandpa should have some money to give these kids. I’m gonna have a list made out for these kids, and I know they’re gonna be truthful about what they lost so we can try to get that back for them. They may not be able to get the items back but we should be able to reimburse.”
Sander added that he will no longer depend on other security guards to watch their items while the team is on the field.
