This is a crazy story from ESPN. Here’s a clip:
In a scenario reminiscent of Tonya Harding vs. Nancy Kerrigan, the backup punter at Northern Colorado has been accused of stabbing his rival in the leg — his kicking leg.
Mitch Cozad, a sophomore from Wheatland, Wyo., allegedly attacked Rafael Mendoza in a parking lot this week. Mendoza was treated and released at a Greeley hospital, but it wasn’t clear when he would return. Cozad was arrested on a charge of second-degree assault and freed Wednesday on a $30,000 bond.
Mendoza, a junior from the Denver suburb of Thornton, will miss this weekend’s game against Texas State. He told Denver station KCNC-TV he was recovering and also wished his team luck in the game.
