Moments after Kentucky’s stunning victory in the Belk Bowl, UK linebacker Kash Daniel sat down for a postgame interview with the SEC Network and it took a turn that no one expected.
Daniel used the post-Belk Bowl platform to apologize to Florida quarterback Kyle Trask, the Florida program, and the Florida fans for an incident that happened in the third weekend of the college football season. As you all well know, ESPN cameras caught Daniel twisting Trask’s ankle in a pile-up, an allegation Daniel denied at the time. Well today, the final day of his UK career, Daniel apologized, saying, “Love me or hate me, I play the game right. I play it right. I apologize to Kyle Trask — no, for real. I apologize to the University of Florida. I apologize to the University of Florida’s fan base… I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart.”
Kash celebrates and apologizes

It’s not what we expected amidst the Belk Bowl celebration, but good on Kash Daniel for using his last big TV moment as a Wildcat to right his wrong.
