Texas wide receiver Mike Davis has been reprimanded, not suspended, after a cheap shot on Iowa State defender Deon Broomfield in the Longhorns' 31-30 win over the Cyclones Thursday.
Big 12 announces a reprimand for Texas WR Mike Davis. No suspension for next week vs. Oklahoma for hit on Deon Broomfield.— David Ubben (@davidubben) October 5, 2013
Here's the play, via landthieves.com.
After the game, Broomfield tweeted what he thought about the play.
Mike Davis really tried to take me out.— Deon Broomfield (@iBroomy) October 4, 2013
Meanwhile, Davis gave what appeared to be a sarcastic apology.
I play to the whistle ..... Sorry I was taught that.— Money Magic Davis jr (@MikeDavis_1) October 4, 2013
Davis was not ejected from the game, but a 15-yard penalty was assessed. Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads was not happy with the officiating, and went off on the Big 12 officials after the game.
The wide receiver is one of Texas's most important players. Davis is second on the Longhorns in receptions (26) and receiving yards (287), trailing Jaxon Shipley by just one in both categories, and leads the team in touchdown catches (four).
