The long wait is finally over and we can almost completely put that ugly tunnel incident following the Michigan vs. Michigan State football game behind us.
On Monday, the Big Ten announced the punishment for Michigan State following a thorough investigation and it also stated that Michigan did not meet the guidelines for the conference’s game management policy to keep people safe.
The Big Ten fined Michigan State $100,000 for the actions in the tunnel and publicly reprimanded Michigan. It also stated that seven of Michigan State’s eight suspended players had fulfilled their punishments of four games.
Khary Crump is the only one who remains suspended and he’ll be suspended the first eight games of 2023 as well.
Michigan State football officially reinstated six more players
Following the official statement, Michigan State officially reinstated six players from suspensions, according to the MSU Athletics page.
Tank Brown, Angelo Grose, Justin White, Jacoby Windmon, Brandon Wright, and Zion Young were all reinstated, effective immediately, to the team.
And if the Spartans do get a bowl invite (there’s still a possibility), they’d each be available to play. There will also be a microscope on Windmon who could opt to return for one more season or declare for the NFL draft. I know Michigan State fans would want him back for another year.
We’ll see what all these players decide to do.
This is good news for Michigan State as it’s been waiting a while to see what the decision from the Big Ten would be.
