ESPN: MSU, OSU settle game-film issue
Basically, MSU got game tape from Ohio State the week prior to their matchup that had all of the pre-snap motions edited out. Tapes provided to OSU's previous opponents did not have this issue, so MSU was forced to contact those schools to get their tapes. After their 1-point loss to Ohio State, MSU complained.
"We had tape cut off all week, where they changed the tape, I'm not gonna lie to you," Narduzzi said outside the MSU locker room. "They send you tape and they’ve got it all cut off and you don’t get to see shifts or motions or anything else."The Detroit Free Press, surprise surprise, initially reported that Michigan State had filed a complaint with the Big Ten, which has since be proven untrue.
Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio and Hollis declined to comment about the film issue, while Meyer said, "There is no video issue here." Narduzzi added that Michigan State didn't get any film from Ohio State until Thursday, which is later than normal.The two school's ADs have resolved the dispute.
Deadspin: Michigan State Definitely Eye-Gouged An Ohio State Player During Yesterday’s Game
The OSU player can clearly be seen grabbing the facemask of the Sparty player, but look closely at the end of the play at the hand in the OSU player's face.
Deadspin: Michigan State Fans Taunted Ohio State QB Braxton Miller With “He’s A Pussy” After Miller Injured By Late Hit
When Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller went down hard on a late hit out of bounds—his head crashing into a storage box of some sort—he didn't get up. That sort of scary scene is usually accompanied by silence in most football stadiums, but Spartans fans couldn't bear to see if Miller was okay; instead, they serenaded him with chants of "He's a pussy! He's a pussy!" Very clever.Click here for the video. Stay classy Sparty fan.
SB Nation: William Gholston returns to game after having wind knocked out of him
Here's a clip of Gholston getting "his wind knocked out" according to Michigan State coaches.
Say what you will about Gholston, but he was out of the game for only the remainder of that possession. It seems a little risky to put a guy who just took a violent head-to-head collision back out on the field so fast.
UMich: Michigan's Winged Helmet
On this game in 1938, Fritz Crisler debuted Michigan's now famous winged helmet against Michigan State at home in that season's opener in front of 73,589 fans.
The distinctive helmet would also have practical advantages on the field. Crisler figured the helmet would help his halfbacks find receivers downfield. "There was a tendency to use different colored helmets just for receivers in those days, but I always thought that would be as helpful for the defense as for the offense," Crisler recalled. [In Crisler's single-wing offense the halfbacks did most of the passing. The quarterback was primarily a blocker or receiver.]The News Tribune: Miami concerned about fan attendance
Sophomore halfback Paul Kromer (83) scored the first touchdown wearing the winged helmet and accounted for 13 of Michigan's 14 points in the 1938 win over Michigan State. In this photo from a later game, he leads the blocking for classmate and "Touchdown Twin" Tom Harmon.
Nice to see the Hurricanes attendance figures rebound this week.
