Miami QB Stephen Morris called South Florida’s defense “a dirty team, to say the least” following the Hurricanes’ 49-21 road win over the Bulls. He claimed USF defensive linemen were intentionally going after his ankle.
“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 was 11/16 for 222 yards and two touchdowns, before being removed from the game. South Florida falls to 0-4, with double-digit losses to McNeese State and Florida Atlantic. Not sure anyone is left on the bus, besides Willie Taggart.
