In a recent interview reflecting on his 4-8 debut, first-year Colorado head coach Deion Sanders said he wishes he had "more privacy" as he navigated the highs and lows of building the Buffaloes into a contender...

"You always wish that you had a little more privacy," Sanders told "But the same thing that makes you shine will show your blemishes. So, you've got to take the good with the bad. You can't just want everyone there when the hype machine is rolling, you have to understand there's another side to this."

"It was a whirlwind early on, then it calmed down to a halt," Sanders said. "It was tough because I've never lost pretty much in life, and in the last several years of my life, 10 years, decade, I'm a darn winner, so dealing with losses was tough."

Still though, Deion is appreciative of the ride. Concluding, "No, we didn't win as many games as we desired, but if there are no valleys, we wouldn't enjoy the peaks."

this reminds me of a situation 10+ years ago where an ordinary woman was getting tons of national press over some issue. She want on a national show and said she didn't want the notoriety and just wanted to be invisible again. And she said this ON A NATIONAL TV SHOW.

Equivalent to a person only being sorry when you get caught. He wouldn’t be coming up with this sorry excuse had they lived up to the hype, he would be showboating even more so. He’s the one that brings the circus and media, don’t feel 1% of sorry for him. Humble Pie for that guy with more to come.

The man who always wants to be spotlight, posts every team detail and does every interview, wants his privacy.

he was in control of most of the attention CU received. Dont let rappers walk your team out of the tunnel. Dont allow them and other hollywood personalities roam your sideline. limit media availability. he has that control

Reading the link title just made me laugh. Let's see if a major face plant will make him stronger.

I'm actually happier that his sons flopped than him. They were tools when winning.

Living your life on ESPN and Twitter is not a cry for privacy. If he wants privacy, he should STFU and disappear.

Bringing attention to yourself and then wanting more privacy? Hmm... I wonder how he could accomplish that.

Typical celebrity trope. Look at me until I'm not happy then give me my privacy.
