Back in July, Kansas State senior linebacker Tre Walker made a comment about Texas that surely provided the Longhorns some much-needed bulletin board material. Walker, at Big 12 Media Days, had this to say about playing UT:
KSU’s Tre Walker on Texas: “They kind of laid down a little bit. That’s nothing to say about their character. That’s just what they do.”

Walker apparently doesn’t want there to be any bad blood ahead of this week’s matchup between the two schools, however. According to Mike Finger of the San Antonio Express News, Walker called Mack Brown to apologize. Brown mentioned such at his press conference today:
Mack Brown says KSU’s Tre Walker called him to apologize for the media day comments. Called him “a good young man.”

It’s great to see Walker owning up to his mistake, but I wouldn’t expect the Longhorns to erase the quote from their memories any time soon.
