“These are good young men who made a mistake in not recognizing that this activity could have resulted in someone being injured,” coach Dave Doeren said in a statement. “We have discussed this with them and they understand that they are being held responsible for their actions. The information was referred to the university’s office of student conduct as well. Our players admitted their mistake and we will help them learn from it.”
