Belichick denies knowledge of how Brady likes his balls

Bill Belichick knows nothing about deflated game balls. According to him, he's never even touched one.

That's what New England's veteran coach told reporters Thursday, as the media frenzy surrounding the issue has enveloped pretty much every outlet at this point. The coach threw his arms up about the controversy, admitting he learned more about the process this week than he previously knew.

"Again, my overall knowledge of football specifications, the overall process that happens on game day with the footballs is very limited," he said via the Boston Globe. "I would say that during the course of a game... Honestly, never -- probably has happened on an incomplete pass or something -- but I've never touched a game ball. It's not something I have any familiarity with on that.

"And again, I was completely and totally unaware of any of this that we're talking about in the last couple of days until Monday morning."
