The Shame in the Big House

Don’t blame the tunnel. This is an excuse, an apology, an evasion of what really happened.

Don’t dismiss it as a boys-will-be-boys scratch. What the Michigan State players did in that tunnel was an assault, and no one should be surprised or outraged when charges are brought.

Don’t dismiss it as a simple by-product of a heated rivalry. There are many teams and schools that hate each other without making the postgame scene as ugly as it was at the Big House on Saturday night.
