The story from ESPN:

Seven Michigan State football players are being charged with crimes stemming from the assault on two Wolverines players in Michigan Stadium's tunnel after the two teams played on Oct. 29, the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office announced Wednesday.

Defensive back Khary Crump is being charged with felonious assault after video was released showing Crump striking Michigan defensive back Gemon Green with his helmet. Defensive end Jacoby Windmon was also shown in the video and is charged with one count of assault and battery.

Itayvion Brown, Angelo Grose, Justin White, Brandon Wright and Zion Young are all being charged with aggravated assault. Video showed a mass of players surrounding Michigan defensive back Ja'Den McBurrows, hitting and kicking him while he was on the ground.

Michigan State initially suspended Crump, Grose, Brown and Young, and, once more video evidence was revealed, Windmon, Wright, White and Malcolm Jones also were suspended.

Jones was not charged with a crime Wednesday.

"At the University of Michigan we appreciate the thoughtful, deliberate approach from the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office to this unfortunate incident," Michigan president Santa J. Ono said in a statement. "We also want to express our concern for all the players involved, especially those who were injured. The University of Michigan will continue to cooperate fully with any additional reviews of this matter."

Green was put in concussion protocol, according to his father, George Green, who told ESPN that the family plans to pursue charges against those involved in the altercation.

These charges were filed after an investigation conducted by the University of Michigan department of public safety, and the prosecutor said in the statement that no further comments will be made at this time.

Green suffered a concussion, which kept him out of one game before he returned to play in Michigan's 34-3 win over Nebraska.

Michigan increased the security presence in and around the tunnel and prevented Wolverines from entering it until each Nebraska player left the field at halftime and after the game.

And now it's being reported that Mel Tucker kept all of the $100,000 bonus last year that was "supposed" to be divvied up between his staff.

Bad day for them.


Another bad, embarrassing day for Michigan State University?

Wow. You think he'll be able to keep a staff around like KF does. I mean if your his DC, and you found out about that, what would you think?

Ok, now I am curious.

The MSU AD had $100,000 to pay out in total bonuses. Wouldn't the AD send the paperwork to payroll where the AD signs off on how much each coach would be paid (of the $100,000)? The AD surely didn't sign off on the $100,000 to be paid entirely to Tucker, where he then told Tucker to pay his assistants...right? I mean, this should have all been run thru payroll....
