Kash Daniel apologizes to Kyle Trask and Florida in postgame interview

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.”

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.

    I think that’s the only thing Matt Jones knows about the UK Football team; that Kash Daniel is from the mountains. CATS

      Hes the defenses anchor, heart and soul. Of course matt Jones is gonna give respect to Kashmiri Daniel’s but hes mentiond a lot about everyone on this team. Past 2 years has been a great ride, even after our quarterback fell due to injury at the start of the season, it made it that much special ??

    I don’t think he did anything to apologize for. But it was nice of him to do so.

      If you don’t think he had anything to apologize for, you apparently weren’t watching the Florida. It was an embarrassing move on his part and I’m glad he’s man enough to apologize.

    Very glad he was a man enough to apologize. That move caused me to lose a lot of respect for him and it clearly affected him throughout the season. Glad he finished his career on a high note.
