Deion Sanders Calls for NCAA Action After Players Experience Locker Room Robbery


Colorado football coach Deion Sanders has called the recent robbery of his players’ belongings a “travesty” and urged the NCAA to take action. The incident occurred in the visitors’ locker room at the Rose Bowl stadium during the game against UCLA. Reports indicated that at least five Colorado players had valuable items, including gold and diamond chains worth thousands of dollars, stolen.

Speaking at his weekly news conference, Sanders expressed his concern for the affected college students, emphasizing that they might not have considered insurance for their belongings at this stage in their lives. He acknowledged that the team had provided resources for financial planning but had overlooked the importance of insurance education.

Sanders stated that the NCAA should address the situation and highlighted the significance of the Rose Bowl as a prestigious event. He added that he would create a list of the items lost and work to reimburse the players, noting that while the stolen items might not be recovered, they could seek financial compensation.

Sanders also revealed that a member of his staff had a “significant amount of cash” stolen, indicating that the problem extended beyond the players. He emphasized that his program would no longer rely on external security for safeguarding their items during games.

The theft is currently under investigation by UCLA police, and the circumstances of the robbery, including the timing and identification of the culprits, remain unclear. Nonetheless, Deion Sanders is committed to supporting his players in resolving this unfortunate incident.
