    I certainly hope that Head Coach Greg Breitbach will send the correct message to his young student-athletes, that this kind of conduct will forfeit the privilege of being part of his football team. These young criminals should not represent Millersville University. Kids make mistakes. But mistakes must be evaluated based on their intent at the time of their indiscretion. A mistake is when you accidentally lock your keys in your car or misplace an important paper. Assaulting someone by physically attacking them at 1:30 in the morning and robbing them of their wallet and cell phone rises to something far greater than a mistake. The Marauders deserve better!

    At some point, these kids thought this was a good idea and totally forgot their status in the community. Has to be the Devil. How else can you explain it?
