The Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office announced on Wednesday that seven Michigan State football players have been charged in connection with the post-game fistfight in the tunnel of Michigan Stadium last month.
Footballers, every once in a while, do end up engaging in physical violence outside of the time between the snap and the whistle. However, excessive violence is definitely outside the scope of the game and should not be ignored when it occurs.

Six were charged with misdemeanors. Only one, sophomore safety Khary Crump, was accused of assault and faces felony charges. Video captured him swinging his helmet in the direction of a Michigan player.
The prosecutor’s office released its findings on Wednesday afternoon following weeks of investigation by the Big Ten Conference, the University of Michigan police, and the Michigan State University police, as well as witness testimony.
