a Accident video The Michigan State and Michigan players showed off their second skirmish between the players after the Wolverines beat the Spartans on Saturday.
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said in his post-match press conference that there were two incidents in the aftermath of the match, but as of Sunday, only one had been documented. The second video has appeared and appears to show a Spartans player using his helmet to strike a Wolverine player.
“Very disgusting,” the video captioned.
The first incident centered on Michigan defensive back Jaden McBurrows. Videos posted on social media appear to show at least three Michigan State players pushing, punching, and kicking Mac Burroughs in and near the lobby that does not lead to either team’s locker room.
No other Michigan player was near McBurrows when the accident occurred.
Harbo said a second player, whose identity was not revealed, was also attacked and another wounded and possibly a broken nose.
“Two of our players were assaulted,” Harbo said. “I saw in one video – 10 on one. It was really bad. Needs investigation.”
The investigation is being conducted in partnership with the Michigan State University Police and the Michigan Department of Athletic and Football Program, University of Michigan Deputy Police Chief Melissa Overton said.
“Situations like this, and the safety of the community, are taken very seriously,” Overton said.
Michigan athletics director Ward Manuel said Senior Commissioner Kevin Warren, who attended the game, is also looking into the fight.
“What happened after the match was completely unacceptable,” Manuel said. “I spoke to the commissioner. He is looking into it. The police are investigating because they saw the video. This is not how we should react after the match. … This is not what the competition should be. It should not be how it is done Remember her.”
Another video showed a fan touching Michigan State coach Mel Tucker over the head. Then Tucker slammed the fan.
“I know it was a hot match,” Tucker said of the tunnel accident. “We were trying to get our men into the locker room. We have to see what happened.”
Tucker added more in tweets on Sunday: “As the Spartans, our program has a responsibility to maintain the highest level of sportsmanship. While sentiment was so high at the conclusion of a competitive game at Michigan Stadium, there is no excuse for behavior that puts our team or opponents at risk.”
“In full cooperation with law enforcement, the Big Ten Conference, MSU and UM leadership, we will assess events in Ann Arbor and take prompt and appropriate action.”
