Michigan State Isn’t Going Quietly: The Spartans File A Complaint Against Ohio State To The Big Ten
Michigan State didn’t go quietly after its one point loss against Ohio State today.
The Detroit Free Press reports that Michigan State’s defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi filed a complaint against Ohio State to the Big Ten. Michigan State claimed Ohio State doctored a tape it sent Michigan State before today’s game.
(Teams in the Big Ten are required to send game tapes to their opponents before games.)
The issue has since been settled by the schools’ ADs without the Big Ten’s involvement, but here’s what Narduzzi alleged:
“We had tape cut off all week, where they changed the tape, I’m not gonna lie to you,” he said outside MSU’s locker room today.
“They send you tape and they’ve got it all cut off and you don’t get to see shifts or motions or anything else. A few other teams we talked to that they played, and we compared what they were looking at on tape to what we were looking at. We’re like ‘We don’t see any of that. We see it on their tape but not on our tape.’ So that’s something I’m sure the Big Ten office will hopefully take care of.”
It’s not clear if the complaint was filed before or after Michigan State’s tough loss against the Buckeyes.
Ohio State’s head coach Urban Meyer said he knew nothing of the alleged doctored video.
“There is no video issue here,” he told Detroit Free Press.
