Blunt responded, saying that he regretted the decision, but added that at the time the players were “begging me.’’
“I’ll be honest with you, man, I told the boys at the end when I broke them down, I’m happy for them and I did it for them, but that it’s not one of my better moments,’’ he said. “I haven’t smiled about it. I haven’t accepted a congratulations about it. I just don’t feel good about it.”
