GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison apologized for “getting in trouble,” but declined to discuss details about his two arrests or his punishment.
Morrison is suspended for Saturday’s season opener against Toledo. Coach Will Muschamp initially suspended the starting middle linebacker for at least two games, but reduced the discipline to one game Monday.
Morrison says, “It’s sincere for me. I apologize to my coaches, my teammates and everybody for everything that went wrong. It’s behind me. I’m moving forward from it. I learned from it.”
Morrison, arrested twice this summer, hardly came across as sincere or remorseful, though.
He refused to answer several questions, seemed defiant while answering others and even had a huge tattoo on his right arm that read “Don’t Trust Me.”
