"I can't remember a time when I was more disappointed," says head coach John Bunting. "The last thing we need after an exciting win like we had Saturday evening was an off-the-field situation that would embarrass the University and this football program. The young men involved will not play until Director of Athletics Dick Baddour and I determine otherwise. It is important to note that all three student-athletes deny their involvement with these charges and we are looking into that at this time.
"Our seniors have demonstrated good leadership all year and I expect they will once again step forward to meet this challenge. I'm proud of the young men who are making the right choices each day to make this program successful."
