That reprimand really showed him, Big 12.
Texas wide receiver Mike Davis was the subject of a significant amount of negative attention thanks to a blatant cheap shot he delivered on an Iowa State defensive player last Thursday night. Many (most?) thought the receiver deserved to be suspended for at least a game.
Instead, in its infinite wisdom, the Big 12 decided to issue a “stern” reprimand. “Mr. Davis is also put on notice that any future such behavior may result in a more serious penalty, including possible suspension,” the statement from the conference read.
Apparently, Mr. Davis didn’t get that particular memo. Or decided to completely dismiss it. One of the two.
“If we have another run-pass situation, I’d do the same thing,” Davis said Monday when asked about the play. “If the DB’s loafing, he deserves to get cut.”
Bravo, Big 12. Well done, Mack Brown. Y’all really showed him.
