Stanford Media relations issued a statement from Chris Marinelli regarding his comments made during an interview with CardinalReport.com.
Coach Harbaugh also addressed the issue in his weekly Thursday meeting following practice.
"It is out of character (for Chris), he let his emotion and his passion for this game get the best of him", Harbaugh said. "It is certainly not what I think is in his heart. And its definitely not the view of Stanford football or the university."
Statement issued from Stanford media relations
This statement is from Stanford football player Chris Marinelli following his comments made earlier this week in an interview with cardinalreport.com.
"I would like to apologize to the University of Notre Dame and anybody else who I may have offended from the remarks I made in an interview earlier this week. I was caught up in the emotions of the game and should have been more thoughtful in my comments. The remarks were out of character for me and certainly aren't reflective of my teammates or anybody else affiliated with the Stanford program. I look forward to a competitive game on Saturday in one of the great environments in college football."
