Things got a little tense after Jackson State’s 26-12 win over Alabama State on Saturday when the teams’ coaches met for the post-game handshake. Deion Sanders was denied by Eddie Robinson, Jr., who pushed the coach away when he went in for the hug.

The two walked out to the midfield logo when time expired, and after they shook hands, Sanders tried to pull Robinson in for a hug. However, the Alabama State coach placed his hand on Sanders’ chest and pushed back against him. The two quickly exchanged words before Robinson walked away.

Deion Sanders, Eddie Robinson address media about the altercation

“It could be a plethora of things,” Sanders said about the incident.

“I think he thought he was going to get a win. I don’t know why he would’ve ever thought that.”

Sanders said Robinson was upset that he hadn’t greeted him pregame without knowing that Jackson State arrived late to the game due to traffic congestion in the area. 

“I don’t know if you understand but we got here very late,” Sanders said.

“So that expedited our whole process of preparation.”

Robinson felt Sanders was disrespectful in the media leading up to the game and pregame on the field during pregame, he said.

“Well, to be up front, I thought it was a lot of disrespect the whole week,” Robinson said.

“So, you’re not gonna be disrespectful the whole week in the media. We didn’t talk in the pregame. I was out there the whole time at the 50-yard line. He walked through our whole huddle in our end zone. Came the long way around to get to his side of the field in the pregame. Thought that wasn’t classy at all.

In the postgame, I’m not about to give you the Obama bro hug. I’m gonna shake your hand and go on. I’m always gonna be respectful and respect the game. … I’m living on the shoulders of the SWAC. He ain’t SWAC. I’m SWAC.”

Though Sanders’ title being thrown out for Power Five jobs, Robinson stated he hopes to get one other crack at him and Jackson State subsequent yr.

“I hope he comes back next year,” Robinson stated.

“I pray he would not get a Power Five job. We can play in Jackson, and I pray they put us for his or her rattling homecoming.”
