  Jackson State coach Deion Sanders said Thursday that his team is not yet ready to play a team like Alabama. Sanders was asked by WVTM13 about Tide coach Nick Saban saying Tuesday that he would "very much be in favor" of scheduling HBCUs, including those in-state. "He's not gonna play us right now," Sanders said at SWAC media day in Birmingham. "We're not ready to that. We're not into sacrificing our kids to get a check. He got to give me another year." Alabama has not yet announced an FCS opponent for its 2023 season. It will play Austin Peay from that level of competition this November.

Alabama does not have a history of playing historically-Black colleges and universities, prompting a question of Saban at SEC media days earlier this week on the topic. Sanders sees size as the roadblock to his team being able to compete in such a game. "I got to beef up in the front," he said. "The difference in Power 5s and HBCUs right now is those big guys in the middle. It's not the quarterbacks, it's not the receivers and DBs or the skill positions. It's those big dogs in the middle. We've got to beef up that to be able to compete with something like that." - Birmingham News
