The Colorado Buffaloes recent loss to the UCLA Bruins not only marked another notch in the derailment of a once promising season, but it also proved costly off-the-field as well.
Reports quickly came out that multiple Colorado players were robbed of jewelry and other valuables.
The items were allegedly stolen right from their locker room during the game.
The incident pissed off head coach Deion Sanders, who urged law enforcement and the NCAA to take swift action.
“That don’t make no sense when you’re out there balling and playing your heart out and you’re getting robbed in the same aspect,” Sanders said after the game. “I hope we could do something about that, NCAA, you do do something about everything else…”

The police acknowledged the importance of community support, emphasizing that the information received played a crucial role in identifying the suspects.
