BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP)
Western Kentucky plays at Kentucky Saturday and during Monday's news conference Taggart said, ''Everybody wears it and I hear people ask them why they do it, and the reason they're at WKU is probably they couldn't get into UK.''
Taggart's later tweeted his ''comments were intended to suggest that WKU students who wear UK apparel this week are not showing allegiance to our athletic program and football team in a week where we need everyone's support. ... I apologize to any of our students who think I may have meant otherwise.''
Western Kentucky athletic director Todd Stewart says Taggart was ''not intending to slight students.''
