Former Wolverine and Big 10 network analyst Braylon Edwards has been suspended indefinitely after calling out players and tweeting that the team was “trash” during their season opening loss to Notre Dame.
Edwards, who has been critical of head coach Jim Harbaugh in the past, has apologized for the tweet and criticism directed at specific players, but not it’s overall message.
“I admit I was excessive and emotional and inebriated. Mix those together. But the focus of my tweets remains intact. I stand by that. I was over-excessive Saturday night at 10:29, but I don’t back down on my overall stance as an alum and a fan. I’ve always defended Michigan. Even this year, I was high on Michigan. I’m a man. We make mistakes. I’m sorry. I should not have gone that way. I still agree with the overall message — what do we do now (as a program)? But I apologize — shouldn’t name individual players. They’re still kids. That’s what I apologize for.”
Edwards says he will personally reach out to the players he specifically called out to apologize.
