North Carolina Tar Heels quarterback Drake Maye made waves this week when he took a shot at in-state rival NC State. Maye has since apologized, and now UNC head coach Mack Brown has spoken out about his comments.

During his press conference on Tuesday, Maye was asked about staying in-state and playing for the Tar Heels. Maye said he always wanted to play for the flagship program in North Carolina, and he jabbed NC State in the process.

"Whether you want to admit it or not, growing up in Carolina, you're gonna be a Carolina fan," Maye said. "Some people may say (NC) State, but really people who go to State just can't get into Carolina."
