The Georgia Bulldogs were blown out at home by Ole Miss on Saturday, falling to a dismal 1-9 in SEC play under first-year head coach Tom Crean.

Though the Bulldogs got some great news on Monday, as 5-star recruit Anthony Edwards committed to the program, Crean was still thinking about Saturday when he met with reporters.

As you can see in the video below, shared by DawgNation on YouTube, Crean apologized for disparaging comments he made about his team following the loss to the Rebels:

“When I saw my comments that I made, I always try to get our players to understand that you can’t let your frustration set in,” he said. “I always preach that and I try to be cognizant of that. I think I let the losing of that game and the fact that we had those lettermen there, and our fans, in general, because I didn’t think we played with the spirit and the passion that we need to. I looked back at those comments and it was like I was blaming the players and that was never my intent. It was never my intent to do that. …

“I am definitely sorry to them, which I’ve apologized to them, and we’ve talked through a lot of things.”

The Bulldogs travel to Texas A&M on Tuesday night, so we’ll see if they can bounce back from Saturday and snap their four-game losing streak.
