Miami outclassed South Florida on Saturday, defeating the Bulls 49-21 in a game that was never close.
Hurricanes’ quarterback Stephen Morris threw for 222-yards on 11-for-16 passing and two touchdowns, but left the game in the second half with an ankle injury.
Following the game, Morris had some strong words for the Bulls players, who he believed were playing dirty and trying to hurt him.
From The Palm Beach Post:
“South Florida’s a dirty team,” he said. “When you’re down and tackled and everyone’s on top, they’re going to try to go for your ankles. We were up three, four touchdowns. Ain’t no point for me to mess with these guys who are going to play dirty.
“It is what it is. I wanted to score 70 points on them. They disrespected us, so I had no respect for them. At that point, I felt like we should just keep pushing it, keep killing them.”
South Florida has been abysmal this season, having been outscored 151-58 in four games, including a 53-21 loss to McNeese State and a 28-10 loss to Florida Atlantic.
