Right after Auburn's Birmingham Bowl win over Memphis on December 30th, Memphis CB Reggis Ball was caught on video taking down a member of Auburn's equipment staff on the sideline, trying to rip a football away from him. Then ran into the locker room looking rather pleased with himself. On Tuesday, Ball wrote this letter, apologizing to Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs for his actions...

“Dear Mr. Jay Jacobs,

I would like to formally apologize for my interaction with a member of your football program, following your Auburn football program’s win at the Birmingham Bowl. In addition, I would like to also apologize for keeping a game ball that was not awarded to me.

I have made sure that the ball is returned to the Auburn football program. My actions following the game were infantile and took away from your program’s much deserved victory. These actions are in no way a reflection of the University of Memphis athletic department, football program, or my character.

I am deeply disappointed that this incident overshadowed the Birmingham Bowl and I hope my apology is heartfelt. Though this has been one of the most embarrassing moments in my life, I will be sure to learn from this and continue to become a much better person and a better player.

I appreciate the Auburn football program’s sportsmanship, and I apologize for any inconvenience that this error in judgement may have caused. Please accept my sincere apology. R. Ball”

He should've stole some paper with an Auburn letterhead and written it on that.

Yea, I also think that's a girl's handwriting.

Headline should have read, "Some girl in Memphis' PR dept wrote a letter on behalf of Reggis Ball."

Still a piece of shite... I'm sure Auburn wants the ball after he signed it.
