Michigan Cornerback Lavert Hill Apologizes For Flipping Off Penn State Crowd
Michigan cornerback Lavert Hill was once a Penn State commit before flipping to Ann Arbor to play for Jim Harbaugh. It’s understandable that he may harbor some bad feelings about Penn State — probably due to the vitriol that was spewed at him once he flipped to a Big Ten Rival — so he let his emotions fly after the game on Saturday.
Only, he got caught.
Hill flipped off the Penn State crowd — more specifically, the student section — following Penn State’s 42-13 victory over the Wolverines. Today, Hill was forced to apologize for his actions. Here’s what he said, per a Michigan athletics release:
Hill hasn’t the only player around the country caught flipping the bird this weekend. Tennessee defensive back Rashaan Gaulden gave Alabama fans the double bird after the Volunteers scored a defensive touchdown against the Crimson tide — the only touchdown Tennessee would score against Alabama in what became a 45-7 drubbing in Tuscaloosa.

Emotion is fine — football is an emotional sport. Just make sure if you’re going to let it show that there aren’t any cameras present.
