ESPN's Stephen A. Smith priming Deion Sanders for Texas A&M?!

Texas A&M has just fired Coach Jimbo Fisher, and Stephen A. Smith is already cheering for Deion Sanders to take his spot.

“They should buy ‘Prime Time’ Deion Sanders out of his contract at Colorado ‘cause he ain’t going to get some hogs to show up there,” Smith said on ESPN’s "First Take."

“That vault that they got at Texas A&M, that’s oil money down there, that’s oil money. Put that brother ‘Prime Time’ Deion Sanders in the SEC let him get some dog, some rough riders, some hogs up in there, and watch what he does,” Smith continued.

Smith also claimed that Sanders “wouldn’t be on a four-game losing streak with a 4-6 record” at Texas A&M.

However, while Deion might look good in a cowboy hat, Jason Whitlock isn’t a fan of this idea — at all.

“So, Deion in last place in the pack 12 should be the new coach at Texas A&M,” Whitlock says, unenthused.

Steve Kim is in agreement.

“Why is there not the expectation for him or the hope that, 'You know what, Prime? This is just year one. This is your floor, and you’re going to build Colorado,” Kim says, adding, “you call it the hard bigotry of low expectations from those who are advocating.”

While Kim admits he doesn’t “get it,” Whitlock says he does.

“Everything about these guys — Stephen A., Deion, Shannon Sharpe — everything about them is about money. More money means you’re more successful,” Whitlock explains, adding, “Money’s how they define themselves.”

Not only does Whitlock think this might be a ploy by “media grifter” Stephen A. to get Colorado to pay Deion more, but Deion wouldn’t be likely to leave his son Shedeur.

“This is part of my criticism of the entire media-industrial complex. We elevate the most uninformed people to the highest platforms, and they’re the authority.”
