This came over the AP wire early this morning and I thought it should be addressed.
LINCOLN, Neb. — Nate Swift is biting his tongue in response to a New Mexico State player’s comment about Nebraska’s receivers.
New Mexico State cornerback Davon House said this week that the Aggies’ secondary is well-prepared to face the Cornhuskers because “we believe our receivers are 10 times better than their receivers.”
Told of House’s comment, Swift let out a chuckle Tuesday and said he wouldn’t engage House in a war or words.
The Huskers are listed as four-touchdown favorites for Saturday’s game.
I just wanted to say that I was at this press conference and did not report the quote. The reason being, that Davon said something stupid that was taken out of context. He went on to compliment the Cornhusker WRs, saying that they were big, had good size and would be tough to match up against. Right when Davon made the statement, I thought to myself ‘what a stupid thing to say, someone could nail him for that.’ But it was not his intention. His tone wasn't condescending. He's a sophomore cornerback who has little experience in talking in front of the media. He got nailed but I feel for him. He wasn't trying to call anybody out.
