Deion Sanders is setting the tone in Colorado in his first year as the team’s head coach.
Last week, Sanders abruptly kicked a player out of the weight room for wearing the wrong color socks.

Ahead of spring practices, Sanders told the team that they would be wearing blank jerseys until they earn their number.
“Everything you do around here will be earned. We ain’t giving you nothing. So, you gotta go get it, and you got to take it,” Sanders told his players.

Sanders went on tell the media his reasoning for having his players wear blank jerseys during spring practice.
“I’m old school, I come from the place you gotta earn it, when my school closed and I wanted to go shopping, I had to get a job and work and earn that. That’s why I appreciate those kind of things.”
