Miami's Morris calls USF 'dirty team'

BY foxsports • September 28, 2013

Miami beat South Florida 49-21 Saturday, but Hurricanes quarterback Stephen Morris left the game ticked off anyway.

Specifically, Morris had beef with what he considered dirty play by the Bulls.

"South Florida is a dirty team to say the least," he told the Miami Herald. "I don't know man. When you're down under [the pile] and everybody is on top they're going to try and go for your ankles and everything. We were already up three, four touchdowns so I was like there ain't no point for me to try to mess with these guys.

"They're dirty. It is what is. I wanted to score 70 points on them. They disrespected us. I had no respect for them at all. At that point I felt like we should just keep pushing it, keep killing them."

Asked to identify the offending players, Morris fingered "whoever was on the defensive line." Morris was dealing with an injured ankle, and suggested South Florida was trying to aggravate the injury.

"They obviously got the injury report thanks to a certain group of people," he said. "It is what it is."
