Texas wideout Mike Davis made headlines this past week for the “cheap shot” he put on Iowa State defender Deon Brooms during last Thursday’s game against the Cyclones. But the criticism really went to another level when he told reporters this yesterday:

Today, it appears that Davis decided to both apologize for and retract his statements. The school released the below video this afternoon:
It’s an interesting move and one that we haven’t seen often – a college football player issuing an apologetic statement on YouTube. The goal, clearly, is to put this issue to rest. We’ll see if it works.
