Joe Mixon Meets the Media...And It Was Awkward

Prior to the player's arrival, an Orange Bowl media relations staffer informed the group of reporters that questions for media would be "football only" or they would be asked to leave. It was later clarified that the Orange Bowl staffer was speaking out of turn. That only inflamed an already awkward situation.

After Joe Mixon arrived, he was asked if he was sorry about what happened (with the assault incident) and replied: "I won't answer that."

Mixon was asked if he planned to address what happened in the future.

Mixon: "My lawyer will."

At one point, Mixon was asked if he had "any regrets at all to anything," and he replied "No."

A lot of other reporters stuck around the Mixon scrum a lot longer than I did. It seemed apparent that Mixon and his lawyer anticipate a civil suit. Sooners AD Joe Castiglione later told reporters that legal concerns were why Mixon wouldn't be able to field questions about the incident today. (FOXSPORTS.com)
