Receiver Phillip Dorsett spoke Tuesday about his critical drops Saturday against Notre Dame, saying he was “really excited to get back on the field” and catch balls again.
“I’m still confident,” Dorsett said. “I had a bad game last week, I know. But I’m going out there and working hard everyday, and I know I should be able to have a great game this week.”
Dorsett later told reporters about “naysayers, people threatening” on Twitter, but didn’t elaborate.
“I just look past it,” he said.
When asked by The Miami Herald about the criticism he took from the public, Dorsett brushed it off, indicating that fans are fickle and that he didn’t pay much attention to it.
Dorsett, known as @BrickByBrick_4 on Twitter, posted Sunday: “I had a bad game, I didn’t play to my standard, but you better believe that will never happen again.. It’s going down next week #hungry.”
Another one of his Sunday Twitter posts: “Games like yesterday shows who really supports you through the ups and downs of this game.”
