“You don’t call Nick Saban ‘Nick.’ Don’t call me Deion,” Sanders said Tuesday, according to the Jackson Clarion Ledger. “If you call Nick ‘Nick,’ you’ll get cussed out on the spot, so don’t do that to me. Treat me like Nick.”

Sanders walked out after being referred to by his first name a second time.
