On Sunday afternoon while watching NFL playoff games, I made a stupid and inappropriate comment on Twitter that referred to Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer.

I have great respect for Coach Beamer as a coach and a person. I called Coach Beamer on Monday to apologize personally.

I apologize to everyone who saw this Tweet or heard about it. Not only was this a violation of company and Gainesville Sun policy, it was simply uncalled for and dumb.
