Students of Ithaca College:
On November 16th, Ithaca College will host the 55th Cortaca Jug with our varsity football teams vying, of course, for possession of the Jug. We are all very proud of the accomplishments of both teams and believe that the game this year will once again be a great one.
As a fan, you can expect to see an outstanding contest on the field. Both teams and the coaching staffs have worked hard since late August to have successful seasons. The Ithaca vs. Cortland game will provide the players and coaches with a great challenge and the fans with a fun-filled, exciting afternoon. The stadium gates open at 10 a.m., kickoff is at noon. Please note, no bags, purses, or containers of any kind will be allowed into the stadium.
Your behavior at the game will reflect on your college. Please be supportive of your team, cheering good play and encouraging the players to do their best. Do not become involved in behavior that will embarrass yourself, your football team or your college. Cheers that include vulgarity or demean players, coaches, officials or fans have no place at this or any other game. Throwing objects on the field, at players, coaches, officials or fans will not be tolerated. In addition, fighting or other serious acts will result in criminal arrest and, when appropriate, on-campus judicial action to include possible suspension or expulsion.
This game has a long and wonderful history. The players and coaches have worked too hard to have the game tarnished by the actions of a few fans. Good sportsmanship on and off the field will make this an event that we will remember fondly for years to come.
