Eddie Robinson Jr., Deion Sanders disagree on who is SWAC
Emotions flowed after Jackson State’s win over Alabama State on Saturday.
There was an ugly exchange between Hornets coach Eddie Robinson Jr. and Deion Sanders of the Tigers after Jackson State’s 26-12 victory.
Robinson Jr. said after the game felt the Pro Football Hall of Famer had disrespected his team and himself throughout the week, including game day.
“I thought there was a lot of disrespect the whole week and so your not going to be disrespectful all week in the media,” Robinson said. “We didn’t talk in the pregame I was out there the whole time at the 50-yard-line. He walked through our huddle on our end zone, he came the long way around to get to his side during the pregame, thought that wasn’t classy at all.
“Postgame I’m not going to give you the Obama bro hug, I’m going to shake your hand and go on I’m always going to be respectful and respect the game. … I’m living on the shoulders of the SWAC, he ain’t SWAC, I’m SWAC, so he’s in the conference and doing a great job, can’t knock that. … You’re not going to come here and disrespect me and my team and my school and then want to bro hug me, shake my hand and get the hell on.”
