"It's a great event," Brown said, referring to the NCAA tournament. "I don't care what other people think, those people scratching their heads. I always watch. I love the college game and I care about it."
"But I realize, you know, in hindsight that was a terrible mistake on my part," Brown said, according to the NCAA report. "I wish I could have changed all that. But we had that interview with the NCAA, I don't know why I lied. You know, dealing with people that I really care about, and I used terrible judgment, and I tried to acknowledge that as quickly as I could, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I realize that."
