PLAYERS: Tre Walker
TEAMS:
Back in July, Kansas State senior linebacker Tre Walker made a comment about Texas that surely provided the Longhorns some much-needed bulletin board material. Walker, at Big 12 Media Days, had this to say about playing UT: KSU’s Tre Walker on Texas: “They kind of laid down a little bit. That’s nothing to say about their character. That’s just what they do.” — Mike Finger (@mikefinger) July 22, 2013 Walker apparently doesn’t want there to be any bad blood ahead of this week’s matchup between the two schools, however. According to Mike Finger of the San Antonio Express News, Walker called Mack Brown to apologize. Brown mentioned such at his press conference today: Mack Brown says KSU’s Tre Walker called him to apologize for the media day comments. Called him “a good young man.” — Mike Finger (@mikefinger) September 18, 2013 It’s great to see Walker owning up to his mistake, but I wouldn’t expect the Longhorns to erase the quote from their memories any time soon.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- He said what he said, and it was wrong. Or it was taken wrong. Regardless, Tre Walker knows how football omerta works: Once it goes up on the bulletin board, there's no taking it back. You don't get a mulligan on a line drawn in the sand. That said, the Kansas State Wildcats' senior linebacker would like to, shall we say, clarify things a bit. "...
