Allen Pinkett apologizes for "criminals" comments

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks
Following his poorly received radio comments on 670-AM on Wednesday, in which he said Notre Dame needed more "criminals" to win, Irish radio analyst Allen Pinkett released this apology:

"In reviewing my remarks from a radio interview Wednesday, it's clear that I chose my words poorly and that an apology is in order for these inappropriate comments.  My words do not reflect the strong pride and passion I have for the Notre Dame football program.
"I am deeply sorry and did not intend to take away the focus from the upcoming season opener. I especially would like to offer my sincere apology to the current members of Notre Dame's football team, including Coach Kelly, the entire Notre Dame community, the IMG College Audio Network and the Ohio State football program. As a proud Notre Dame graduate, I wish nothing but the best for our football team and the University.
"I understand that there may be consequences to my actions and accept whatever discipline is imposed."

The Notre Dame IMG Network added this: "The Notre Dame IMG Network is extremely disappointed in the comments made by Allen Pinkett in his radio interview.  We completely disagree with those comments.  As his employer, we will be determining disciplinary action to be taken."

Everybody has their cupcakes dont be a fool about that fact. However the entire big10 conference is entirely full of cupcakes outside of four teams. Why would nd ever be scard to play osu everyyear when they set a schedule like they did this year. You must agree with pinkett because osu is loaded w thugs and criminals.

It really doesn't matter anyway because OSU beat Notre Dame home and away in 95 and 96. Beat Notre Dame convincingly in the Fiesta Bowl. OSU has won a National Championship and a Heisman within the last decade. When was the last Irish National Championship and Heisman? Notre Dame also refused the Big Ten invite on three seperate occasions and truth be told they play the Big Ten's middling teams every year (Purdue, Michigan State and Michigan) but there's no way they want OSU or Wisconsin on their schedule every year when they can play Boston College, Navy and Air Force instead. Go Bucks!
