UCLA Bruins defensive end Cassius Marsh, pictured above in mid-attempt of giving Cal quarterback Jared Goff a bear hug, was ejected during the second quarter of UCLA’s 37-10 win over the Golden Bears. Marsh issued the following apology on Wednesday:
It was my fault. It was my mistake for reacting. There’s no excuse for my actions. I let down my team, I affected my team, I hurt my team. That’s never OK. I felt horrible about it. It’s a hard thing for me. I’m sure you guys know, it’s been something I’ve been working on my whole career. I will continue to do so.
It’s hard because I feel like at this point, I have little to no credibility in saying that I will continue to work. But that’s all I can do, is continue to work to control myself, to stay within my game. But like I said before, there’s no excuse. I made the mistake of reacting, and that was my fault, 100 percent (Inside SoCal).
Marsh was ejected for taking a swing at a Cal lineman, although replays indicate he was somewhat baited into doing so. Still, kudos to him for owning his mistake and apologizing.
