    RELEASE: Anthony Booker apology

    From Iowa State...

    AMES, Iowa – Iowa State senior men’s basketball player Anthony Booker made the following statement Monday:

    “I have personally written President Clements and the West Virginia student body president apologizing for making an obscene gesture towards the West Virginia student section in our basketball game Saturday. I got caught up in the emotions of a hard-fought game and lost my composure. It was a poor decision on my part and I am sorry for conducting myself in this manner. I also wish to express regret for putting our university and our basketball program in a poor light. I have learned a valuable life lesson as a result of my poor decision.”

    He made a mistake and this was the right thing to do. No matter who wrote it - it was still the right thing to do. Without this Book could have been out for Thursday and this board would have gone nuts.

    Yeah, and it's internet embarrassment on CF, which is possibly the worst kind imaginable.

    Re: RELEASE: Anthony Booker apology

    There's no need to apologize to West Virginia. They were harassing him and he responded. Sometimes (or all the time) we take sports too seriously.

    The only reason to be sorry for anything is that some kids might have seen the finger when he was angry on the bench.

    Interesting...maybe some other statements forthcoming??? Did the Big 12 made him sweat it out a little bit before letting him know his status for the tourney.

    If the camera doesn't catch this, does anyone even know about it? I don't think so.

    B12 said because of Book's actions and apology they are satisfied so no suspension.

    Exactly. The response was appropriate to the fan. Not appropriate for the venue and situation but he doesn't need to apologize to WVU.
