Emmitt Smith has apologized for his comments on Jeff Driskel

During Saturday’s devastating loss to Alabama, lots of Gators spoke up on how badly the team was getting beat.

Emmitt Smith was the biggest name on the list. Smith is one of the best Gators of all-time and one of the best NFL running backs of all time.

Smith tweeted that Jeff Driskel should be benched because he “had seen enough.” Muschamp, during the SEC teleconference on Wednesday, said Smith called the team and apologized for his comments.

Some fans are going to ask why Smith would need to apologize. Just think about it, he’s an all-time legend and he’s calling out his alma mater and putting a 21-year-old kid on blast. This is the right move for Emmitt. I’m glad he apologized.

Smith has since deleted his original tweet.
