In today's world of college football, if your program isn't actively looking for the next best situation then your program is going to get left behind. That sentiment is especially true for non-power five schools, and Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders knows it.
With that in mind, Jackson State is already speaking about conference realignment.
Sanders, just like any other college coach, wants the best financial situation for his program.
"What do we want to do?" Sanders asked ESPN. "Do we want to sit back and adhere to tradition? Or do we want to put ourselves in a financial situation where our school prospers? You've really got to factor that in and weigh those options. There's some tremendous options that some of the schools are going to be faced with. We're already speaking about it."
"You call it realignment. You can really call it chasing the bag," Sanders said. "That's all they're doing, they're chasing the bag."
