Texas WR Mike Davis: Iowa State DB deserved low block


Texas wide receiver Mike Davis apparently doesn't know when to stop, on or off the field.

Davis, who received a personal foul penalty during the game and public reprimand from the Big 12 Conference afterwards for his low block on Iowa State defensive back Deon Broomfield, defended his actions Monday.

Things we learned in Week 6


From Marcus Mariota's seven-TD performance to freshman Jameis Winston's KO of Maryland, here are 40 things we learned about Week 6 in college football. **More ...**

"If we have another run-pass situation, I'd do the same thing. If the DB's loafing, he deserves to get cut," Davis said, according to tweet by San Antonio News-Express writer Mike Finger.

The Big 12 derided Davis' play as "unnecessary and illegal" and warned that further punishments would be doled out if it happens again, but that apparently hasn't sunk in for the talented senior just yet.

Not only does Davis come off looking petulant, there is also an on-field component to his latest remarks. If Davis isn't going to show any remorse -- though he did express relief that Broomfield was not hurt -- why should opposing defenders extend him any professional courtesy in return?

Davis may well be a marked man the rest of this season, starting with Saturday's rivalry game against Oklahoma, and not because of his speed and big-play ability.
