College football: Players from Western Michigan University knocked some locker room sinks loose, broke a trophy and caused other damage following the Broncos’ 45-33 victory over the University of Idaho in the Kibbie Dome in Moscow last month, according to emails between school officials.
The damage was bad enough that Idaho athletic director Rob Spear decided to bill Western Michigan $500 for cleanup and repair costs.
Kathy Beauregard, the director of athletics at Western Michigan, apologized and said Western Michigan would pay the requested $500.
