UCLA receiver Ricky Marvray and left tackle Sean Sheller, suspended for Saturday's game against Arizona because of a violation of team rules, spoke with reporters after practice Tuesday and expressed remorse for their infractions.
"It’s unfortunate," said Marvray, UCLA's leading receiver. "I decided to make a bad decision -- a couple of bad decisions and it’s coming back to bite me. I’m really sorry to my parents, they didn’t raise me that way. It’s not something I’m proud of. I’m just trying to get this week over with as fast as possible and move on from it. I learned my lesson and it for sure won’t happen again."
Sheller, who has started every game this season, said he regretted causing a distraction to the team.
"I let the fans down, I let my teammates down, I let my family down," he said. "I'm sorry."
Marvray and Sheller have been moved to the scout team for this week. Josh Smith took most of the reps in Marvray's spot and Micah Kia took over for Sheller.
"I don’t know at this point in time what my reasons were for doing whatever I did," Marvray said. "I just know it’s gotten to this point and it’s unfortunate that it has. It’s something that I have to learn from and not do it again."
