ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN: The rivals Michigan Wolverines and Michigan State Spartans got into a physical brawl on Saturday, October 29, in the tunnel of Michigan Stadium. Coach Jim Harbaugh of the Michigan Wolverines is undoubtedly upset about the incident since two of his athletes were injured in the brawl.

Spartans coach Mel Tucker claimed that linebacker Tank Brown, safety Angelo Grose, defensive end Zion Young, and cornerback Khary Crump were all suspended right away after being seen in the video attacking Wolverines' defensive back Ja'Den McBurrows. However, that was clearly insufficient for Harbaugh, who now says he expects charges to be filed against the four Michigan State players who were suspended for their involvement in the manhandling of two Michigan athletes.

"Michigan State University football core values include integrity, discipline, unselfishness, toughness and accountability," Tucker stated after "reviewing the disturbing electronic evidence." Coach Harbaugh, in the meantime, thinks the four should face more severe punishment, saying he "can't imagine that this will not result in criminal charges."

Harbaugh stated, "Right now we have an ongoing police investigation. What happened in the tunnel was egregious. Sickening to watch the videos, the ones that are on social media right now." Among the athletes attacked by the Spartans were Gemon Green and Ja'Den McBurrows.

Harbaugh claims that Green was punched in the tunnel by a Spartan player, and McBurrows was attacked after he intervened to try to help. To represent him in the assault case, Green has appointed attorney Tom Mars, who has represented collegiate athletes in a number of issues involving eligibility.

Mars stated, "When college football players brutally attack a member of the opposing team with their helmets, resulting in the player suffering a concussion and other injuries, an apology won't suffice. There has to be severe consequences for this kind of misconduct."

"Not only does Gemon Green deserve to be compensated for his injuries, severe consequences in this case will deter others who might think they can get away with brutally beating an opposing player and only get a slap on the wrist. I've got news for the MSU players who did this to Gemon. They are going to feel the full wrath of the law," Mars concluded.
