Mel Tucker announces suspension of four Michigan State players involved in tunnel attack
At the end of Michigan’s 29-7 win over Michigan State, two Michigan players were attacked in the tunnel by Michigan State players.
A day later, Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker announced suspensions for four of the players involved.
“Following a review of the troubling electronic evidence collected to date regarding the October 29, 2022 altercation between Michigan State and the University of Michigan student-athletes, we are suspending Tank Brown, Khary Crump, Angelo Grose and Zion Young effective immediately.” , Tucker said in the statement. “We are currently working with law enforcement, Michigan State and Michigan campus leadership, and the Big Ten Conference to further evaluate the events at Ann Arbor, including but not limited to the additional involvement of students and athletes in the altercations and contributing factors. The initial student and athlete suspensions remain in effect pending investigations.
The Big Ten conference is investigating these incidents, as well as a joint investigation by the University of Michigan Police Department and the Michigan State University Police Department. How long these investigations will last remains to be seen, but these players won’t be seeing the field any time soon, and rightly so.
Those four players could face criminal charges, and even more Michigan State players could be suspended if more evidence is found.
Michigan State athletic director Alan Haller also commented on the situation tonight, calling the evidence alarming. Haller said he is in contact with Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel.
We will continue to keep you informed of developments.
