Emmitt apologizes for forgetting UF in speech

Emmitt Smith gave a profoundly impressive speech when he was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame on Saturday night.

One little problem: he forgot to mention the University of Florida in his speech. Conspiracy theories started cropping up as to why the Gator would have insulted his alma mater by not mentioning them in his lengthy address to football fans everywhere.

Smith, to his credit, attempted to clear up the issue on Twitter Sunday evening.
I sincerely sincerely apologize for not mentioning u last night in my hof speech Gator Nation

I jus got caught up in everything plz charge it to my mind not my heart!!

once a GATOR always a GATOR I loved everything the U of florida gave me
Emmitt's willingness to apologize makes it seem a lot less awkward that he forgot to mention his college.

There was a lot of talk, though, about Smith memorizing his speech. And if that's the case, and he did so properly, it's kind of hard to accidentally leave out something as important as the college he attended.
