Colorado coach Deion Sanders has made all sorts of headlines this college football season for what his team is doing on the field, but Sanders is no stranger to making headlines off the field as well.
Sanders’s latest shenanigans came on Thursday, when he took to social media to rant about a rodent that he spotted in the office.
“Something looking at me like, ‘What’s up?’ and I looked down and made eye contact…and it’s over,” Sanders said. “I’m early, really early. I come here early, but I need to wait for everybody to get in because they’re gonna have somebody come in and take these shoes and take everything out of this office because I made eye contact with a mouse. We called it a rat, but it wasn’t big enough to be a rat, but it was a mouse.
“I’m scared,” Sanders continued. “I can’t do this. I can’t live like this. I’m in Boulder, Colorado. I cannot live like this. So help is going to be on the way today. One of us has got to go.”
Hopefully the Colorado staff was able to get the mouse out of the office so that Sanders could continue his focus on his team’s huge Pac-12 opener on Saturday in Eugene against No. 10 Oregon.
An upset victory as a three-score underdog over a top-10 team would certainly solidify No. 18 Colorado as one of the most improved teams in the country after a 1–11 season a year ago.
