Deion Sanders was not shy when he was asked who the best coach in college football is right now.
The first-year Colorado head coach has so far guided the Buffaloes to a 3-0 record with their latest win coming Saturday against Colorado State in double overtime. Sanders only has a few months under his belt in the Power 5 Conference coming from Jackson State, but he is putting himself at the top.

"Let me see a mirror so I can look at him," he said during an interview on "60 Minutes" when he was asked who he thought was the best coach in the sport. "You think I’m going to sit up here and tell you somebody else? You think that’s the way I operate? That somebody else got that on me?"
Sanders, who does Aflac commercials with Alabama head coach Nick Saban, expressed great admiration for the Crimson Tide leader.
"I’ll tell you this, I love and I adore and I respect and every time I do a commercial with coach Saban, it’s a gift. Just sitting in his presence and hearing him and throwing something else out there so I can hear his viewpoint on it because he’s forgotten more things than I may ever accomplish," Sanders said of Saban.
