Where’s Cormani McClain? Stuck in Deion Sanders’ doghouse.

BOULDER — Deion Sanders dunked on Cormani McClain so hard, Samari Rolle flinched. In Florida.

“I know what’s going on. And having been around Cormani, I think he’s got all types of God-given ability.” Rolle, the former NFL Pro Bowl cornerback and McClain mentor told me Tuesday, cutting straight to the chase. “And I think it can be frustrating when you’re coaching him, and he’s not putting it all together.”

Four weeks in, CU Buffs fans are frustrated. McClain, presumably, feels frustrated. Coach Prime? Sanders passed “frustrated” about five exits ago.
