Seriously, WTF is with this?
University of Florida presidential hopeful and U.S. Senator Ben Sasse apologized Tuesday for what he said was “the single ugliest, most scandalous thing” about his record: calling the SEC trash.
“I should confess that it is true that in 1981, as a 9-year-old, I did regularly decree that the SEC was ‘trash,’” Sasse said during his interview with the board of trustees. “That was wrong. If I could get the freedom to revise and extend my remarks, I should have said that Georgia, Alabama and LSU were trash.”
Hardy har har.
It’s one thing for a coach to stir up the rubes in the offseason with trash talk, but a university president meeting with the school’s trustees? If that went over well, I’m not sure who it reflects worse on.
Then again, this is Florida we’re talking about.
