The Colorado Buffaloes football team reportedly suffered losses both on and off the field during their game against UCLA on Saturday. Multiple CU players have alleged that jewelry was stolen from their locker room during the game. Coach Deion Sanders has expressed his dissatisfaction with the incident and is now requesting reimbursement from the NCAA for the stolen items.
However, it is important to note that the NCAA is not known for providing financial compensation in such cases. Coach Sanders’ request may not be fulfilled as the NCAA does not have the resources or policies to address such matters. The Pasadena Police Department is currently investigating the alleged theft.
In addition to the theft, there have been reports of Shedeur Sanders, son of Coach Deion Sanders, flaunting a $70,000 watch to the Arizona State student section after a previous game. This incident has garnered attention as Shedeur has been seen displaying expensive items throughout the season. It is worth mentioning that the responsibility for the theft lies with the Rose Bowl stadium security, but displaying valuable possessions in public can attract opportunistic thieves.
While the theft is unfortunate, it is unlikely that the NCAA or the Rose Bowl will provide compensation for the stolen goods. The league office may view the situation with skepticism or amusement. It is suggested that alternative means, such as a GoFundMe page, be explored for those affected by the theft.
