Pac-12 Reprimands Barkley

| No Comments

USC junior QB Matt Barkley was reprimanded by the Pac-12 for his comments regarding Arizona State LB Vontaze Burfict in the lead up to last Saturday's game.

"We talked to Matt right after he made that comment and told him that it was not appropriate.  He understood," head coach Lane Kiffin said.

"Despite this reprimand, Matt Barkley represents everything that is good about college athletics.  He is one of the finest student-athletes I have ever been around.  You will not find a person with higher character or values."

Barkley was quoted by the Los Angeles Times as calling Burfict "a dirty player."  Barkley elaborated on his comments after practice this morning before hearing of the reprimand.

He will face no further discipline.
