Coach Sanders has been honing his skills as a head football coach under some unusual circumstances. He almost lost a foot, the town ran out of water, there wasn’t a proper practice field. With all that being said, he just goes out and wins. I mean he is Primetime.
In his short stint at the helm of Jackson State in the SWAC conference, Coach Sanders is 18-5 with one conference title. In the same 3 year span, Auburn is 13-12 with back to back losing seasons. The level of play is obviously more difficult in the SEC. However, Sanders did get the highest rated recruit, Travis Hunter, to go to the small HBCU. To be honest, what defensive back recruit wouldn’t go play under Coach Sanders? Now the question is, would Prime leave the program he is building up? I believe he would leave but he would leave it in the hands of one of his coordinators.
But is Auburn the right fit? Deion Sanders, Auburn’s New Coach, would be headlines but I would say it is a two horse race between Auburn and Georgia Tech. Johnny, Georgia Tech and Auburn are not on the same level; why would he even consider that? Ok, I get that. Hear me out real quick. Auburn does have a great tradition of winning, great facilities and boosters who will do anything to win.
With that, though, the expectations at Auburn are extremely high and you are always playing little brother to Nick Saban and Alabama. As I was writing this blog I saw someone tweet this photo, Auburn might have made a push to grab him .
I honestly think the best jump to a power 5 team for Coach Sanders is Georgia Tech. The last 3 years under Geoff Collins, the Jackets are 7-18. Not acceptable at all for a team whose goals each year are to beat Georgia and win a bowl game.
The main reason I think Coach Sanders jumps to the rambling wreck is location! It is right in the heart of Atlanta. Deion Sanders became Primetime in Atlanta with the Falcons shutting down half the field and looking damn good doing it.
For Auburn, it doesn’t matter, they will always get 4 stars and a few 5 stars. Coach Sanders in Atlanta, one of the hotbeds of college recruiting; hot damn that’s a recipe for a damn good team. He would put a choke hold around the Atlanta area I don’t think Saban would be able to touch. Why go play for all these old coaches, most of them never playing major college ball? When you could play for Coach Sanders and let him show you how to be a professional on and off the field.
I honestly believe the best move for coach is to go to that Atlanta market and show what he can do. Georgia Tech does not have a QB on the roster better than his son, who can start right away. He will have recruits fall right into his lap. The city of Atlanta loves him from his days of playing for the Braves and the Falcons. You can bet your ass attendance and support would go through the roof. The ACC, being average the last ten years, could be a great opening for Georgia Tech to become a power team.
