Kansas had a nice conference win over Kansas State spoiled Tuesday night with a brawl that broke out between both teams. The sights were shocking and dangerous, and Kansas' Silvio De Sousa was right in the center of everything. He picked up a chair and even though he did not attack anyone with it, the potential of the act lives on.

De Sousa has had a day to think things over and decided to tweet out an apology.

The 21-year-old put himself in the spotlight and his apology begins the process of moving forward. He still has to serve his 12-game suspension, but showing remorse is always the best option, and it appears the sentiment is genuine.

There were many reasons why the brawl started and got out of hand, but it is impossible to ignore De Sousa's role. The fact he apologized should help fans move on from this as well in due time.
