Former Sooner Kelly apologizes for rant against OU strength staff
Receiver said he was thinking about his family at the time

"That can be the difference between running this and running that. I was thinking about my family when I said all of that stuff.

"You never saw me say stuff after a game, like, why didn't they throw me the ball, I was open on every play. I never want to portray myself as a guy that complains. The other guys who were training wanted to say the same things I did, but I went out and said it.”

When asked if Wednesday's incident would affect his allegiance to OU, Kelly said no.

"Right now, I'm down about it,” he said. "But Oklahoma did put me on the field, they did give me the opportunity for scouts to see me on film. So I can't take that away from coach (Bob) Stoops. He believed in my ability to go out there and play. I was a Sooner when I got up there and I'll be a Sooner when they put me in my grave.

"I support the whole coaching staff, the whole strength staff and (what happened) is not going to affect my allegiance to the program.”
