Western Kentucky football coach Willie Taggart got himself in hot water earlier today with his quote about WKU students wearing Kentucky gear on the Bowling Green campus.
Taggart said, “The reason those people are at WKU is because they probably didn’t get into Kentucky.”
Now, Taggart is backpedaling and apologizing.
I have said many times ‘WKU is in my DNA’ and I have tremendous respect for all of our students who attend this tremendous university.
