GREELEY, Colo. - The University of Northern Colorado’s reserve punter was arrested Tuesday, accused of stabbing his rival in his kicking leg.

Mitch Cozad, a sophomore from Wheatland, Wyo., allegedly attacked starting punter Rafael Mendoza in a parking lot in Evans on Monday night, Evans police Lt. Gary Kessler said.

Mendoza, the Bears’ first-string punter from Thornton, was treated and released from the North Colorado Medical Center Monday night. Coach Scott Downing said Mendoza will not punt for UNC in Saturday’s game at Texas State University.

All I can say is WOW.

What the heck are people thinking that do this? That no one will find out and they move right in even though they aren't the best at what they do?

Damn, Tonya Harding thinks that's whack. Didn't he know a lead pipe to the shin is the way to go?

Holy crap. That campus is about 3 blocks away from my parents house. My dad was good friends with their previous coach.
