Two former FSU football players exchanged words earlier this week. It all began when Deion Sanders dismissed playing at FSU and wouldn’t recognize the school at all in an exchange with a media member.
Former FSU quarterback Danny Kanell took exception to how Deion Sanders handled the situation and questioned why he handled the situation how he did.
Deion Sander replied in a dismissive fashion, and basically told Kanell to mind his business.
In typical Danny Kanell fashion, he responded, but it wasn’t how I thought he’d do it. Kanell often wears his heart on his sleeve and isn’t afraid to fight fire with fire. However, check out how he responded to Deion Sanders below:
This was slick. Deion Sanders said he wasn’t a Nole, but Kanell said he was one, not once but twice in the reply. He also took the high-road on getting his degree, which is significant because Sanders has enough money that it didn’t matter if he completed the degree.
Now, whether it was an honorary degree or not is something Kanell chose not to get into when he could have. However, it is a good example to show young student-athletes that no matter what, you should finish what you started since you’re a student first, then athlete.
The way Kanell responded seemed to put an end to the situation as Deion Sanders responded Friday morning:
That’s typical Deion Sanders. In one breath he told Kanell to “Stay out of grown folks business, you have no idea what it is.” In the next breath, it’s “Much love.” It sounded like he put Kanell in the same category as FSU University, meaning there was no love.
Who knows, maybe they got on the phone and chopped it up between replies. Deion Sanders has a game to coach Saturday against TCU, and all eyes will be on that product. If they don’t look somewhat improved over last season, it won’t be long before all the hype he brought to Boulder, Colorado, is over.
