AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas wide receiver Mike Davis has issued an apology for a cut block against an Iowa State defender that drew a personal foul penalty, a day after saying he’d “do the same thing” again. Davis was penalized for his block on Deon Broomfield and was publicly reprimanded by the Big 12 for the play last Thursday.
On Monday, Davis said he was glad Broomfield wasn’t hurt. He said the play called for him to block the defender. But he suggested Broomfield wasn’t playing hard and deserved the cut block at his left knee. Davis said: “I’d do the same thing” in a similar situation.
In a statement released Tuesday, Davis says he didn’t want to hurt Broomfield. He apologized to the player and Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby
