“I was just kind of blank for two days. I wouldn’t say upset or mad, I just couldn’t think. I couldn’t grasp anything. I had no emotion,” Moseley said Tuesday night.
Moseley appeared before the media for the first time since an emotional interview on the night Trotter was named the starter.
Moseley said he overcame his disappointment by talking “a lot of people close to me.”
His conclusion? “Stop pouting.”
“It came to the point that I can’t not give 100 percent. Being the backup is the most important thing I can get if I can’t be the starter. I can be the best backup in America,” he said.
Moseley said his relationship with Trotter “was real tough for two days because what do you say to me if you’re Barrett? The second day he wanted to talk, and there was no way anybody could talk to me.”
Afterwards, “I called up Barrett, and said that I accept it. He’s my best friend no matter what.”
