Palmer tells Buckeyes fans that he's a loyal Trojan, that's all


Carson Palmer


COLUMBUS, Ohio - Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer is trying to explain remarks that have gotten him in big trouble with Buckeyes fans.

USC's 2002 Heisman Trophy winner told a Los Angeles radio station last week that it drives him crazy to hear all the talk about Ohio State when he's in Cincinnati. He said he can't wait until Sept. 13 when Ohio State plays Southern Cal, and he hopes the Buckeyes "get an old fashioned Pac-10 butt-whipping."

Palmer has issued a statement saying his comments were intended mainly for a California audience and that he "got a little fired up, as all good fans will do."

He also said he respects the Buckeyes and knows their fans are passionate. He said he's just looking forward to a big game and his comments were all in the good fun of a college rivalry.
