Explaining why he declined to hug Deion, Eddie Robinson explained: “I thought there was a lot of disrespect the whole week. We didn’t talk in the pregame, I was out there the whole time on the 50-yard line.
“He walked through our whole end zone, he came the long way around to his side of the field in the pre-game, I thought that wasn’t classy at all.”
He concluded: “You’re not going to come here and disrespect me and my team and my school and then want to bro hug me. Shake my hand and get the hell on.”
