Miami quarterback Stephen Morris left Saturday's 49-21 win over South Florida in the second quarter with a sprained ankle. After the game, he seemed to think the Bulls wanted it that way.
Asked by the Miami Herald's Manny Navarro what happened during the sequence, Morris was blunt:
"South Florida is a dirty team to say the least.
"I don't know man. When your 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."
Morris had been limited in practice this week after originally injuring his ankle in last week's win over Savannah State, and he thinks that played into South Florida's strategy heading into Saturday's game.
"It's the game of football. They obviously got the injury report thanks to a certain group of people. It is what it is."
