USC linebacker Tony Burnett apologized for several tweets he sent out expressing his disappointment going to El Paso for the Sun Bowl, including “I’ve been to El Paso no one wants to be there New Year’s Eve.”
Another said, “I won’t apologize this is fact. Been there done that.”
USC is promoting the twitter monikers of football players this season but this is not the type of publicity it hoped to generate. Burnett’s apology and initial comments here.
