Nerves caught at the end Jackson State 12-26 win Alabama on Saturday. While shaking hands with the midfield, Tigers coach Dion Sanders tried to hug Hornets coach Eddie Robinson Jr., but the Hornets coach blocked him and backed out of the hug attempt.

The two walked out to the midfield logo when time was up, and after they shook hands, Sanders tried to lure Robinson into a hug. However, the Alabama State coach put his hand on Sanders’ chest and pushed him against him. The two quickly exchanged words before Robinson turned away.

In his post-match press conferenceRobinson asked about the melee. Robinson said he felt disrespected by Sanders all week and before the match, so he didn’t want to act like friends in midfield.

“Well, to be up front, I thought there was a lot of disrespect all week,” Robinson said. “So, you wouldn’t be disrespectful all week in the media. We didn’t talk in pre-game. I was there the whole time on the 50-yard line. He walked through our entire rally into our final zone. He came a long way to get to his side of the field in the preliminary game.” I thought this wasn’t elegant at all. In game after game, I’m not about to give you a bosom of Obama and his bros. I’ll shake a hand and go on. I will always be respectful and respectful of the game… I live on the shoulders of SWAC. It’s not SWAC. I’m SWAC.”

Robinson also said that the way Sanders handled Endgame got him the wrong way. Jackson State had the opportunity to take the knee at the end of regulation but Sanders decided to be aggressive in order to increase the score. Robinson objected and his defense responded in a similar fashion.

“You can’t do all these things all week, and then come in and get your quarterback in the game and run an obstacle and go try to put more points on the board,” Robinson said. The game was out of line. It was 26-12. 40 seconds left. We didn’t have timeouts. Take a damn knee. We wanted to try to run, so we started. We’re going to take them out of the game too. That’s how it should be. That we play. There’s no place. Do you want to do that? Don’t come and try bro hug like we’re friends. We’re not friends. You didn’t shake hands with me before the game. Why do you want to shake my hand after the game? Period. That’s it.”

Despite Sanders’ name being left out of Power Five jobs, Robinson said he hopes to get another crack against him and Jackson State next year.

“Hopefully he’ll be back next year,” Robinson said. “I pray he didn’t get the Power Five job. We can play in Jackson, and I invite them to put us on their way home.
