Texas wide receiver Mike Davis defended himself after he delivered a dirty-looking hit to the knee of Iowa State defensive back Deon Broomfield during the Longhorns’ 31-30 win in Ames.

Davis, who received a penalty, was lucky not to be ejected from the game for the hit, which happened after Longhorns running back Joe Bergeron scored a touchdown to give Texas a 24-20 third-quarter lead. This kind of hit has the potential to not only end someone’s season, but all also put their career in jeopardy.
But Davis defended the play, saying he just did what he was taught to do.
I play to the whistle ….. Sorry I was taught that.
