SUNY Cortland President Apologizes For Students Behavior Following Football Game


Having gone to school in the Cortland area, I know the town tends to be a laid-back area with a college campus that is usually very well behaved.  That was not the case over the weekend, when more than 30 people were arrested following the Cortaca Jug football game that brings together a longstanding football rivalry between SUNY Cortland and Ithaca College.

The State University of Cortland college president, Erik Bitterbaum issued a public apology Sunday in reaction to what happened after the game, saying he will work closely with city officials to “implement measures intended to prevent this type of activity from occurring again,” according to a prepared statement he released to the media.

Police described the large crowds that so big that officers had to stop arresting people and had to call other police officials in to assist in controlling the crowd that some say was wrecking the streets of a normally quiet town and a series of serious injuries that were reported.
