Prime is right. It's about respect. Pure and simple. Deion is looking to be a great coach... maybe HOF level. Now who called Coach Eddie Robinson Eddie? More than that I've never heard a reporter call Nick Saban Nick. It's Coach Saban. Or Coach Paterno. Or Coach Belichick. Coach Landry. It's about due respect equally...pure and simple.
