For Your Consideration: William Gholston

Gholston had a full day of playing dirty, but here are the two plays in question.

No question, a suspension is in order. One game at least. He should have been thrown out of the game following the helmet twist...which refs might not have even seen, given the late hit alone was worthy of the flag. How he was able to remain in the game after the punch to Lewan is beyond me. Refs saw it, flagged it, and then let it go.

Look, I'm not going to say these dirty plays decided the game. Michigan State beat us straight up. If anything these plays and the resulting penalties helped us out by extending drives in the second half when our offense was having a lot of trouble. But regardless of the outcome, dirty play is not acceptable. I like this rivalry. I like that its very physical. But I don't want to see it get out of control. Both Gholston and Lewan are sophomores, which means they'll likely see each other again at least once. I don't want to see it get ugly. That's not what this rivalry should be about.


  1. Gholston will get what is coming to him, one day from someone, he will get what is coming to him. I have never seen such a dirty player in my life. And to say "it's football" like that is how the game should be played is ridiculous!

  2. I love all the comments on the video talking about how people shouldn't be so up in arms over this because dirty stuff happens in the pile all the time like that some how makes it okay. Absolutely ridiculous. This kid definitely needs to get some kind of punishment so he understands that this kind of stuff is absolutely unacceptable.

  3. He's gonna get his soon enough.

  4. Lol I love it...take your medicine you cry babies.
