Heading into Saturday night's game between Michigan and Michigan State, Jim Harbaugh had never beaten Mel Tucker. That all changed last night as the Wolverines dominated the Spartans by a score of 29-7 at the Big House in a game that was not as close as the score indicated. Following the game, a group of MSU players was caught on video assaulting at least one player from the Wolverines, causing local law enforcement to get involved.
What did Jim Harbaugh say after the game?
After the game, Harbaugh took some time to watch the video and he then met with the media. While commenting on the assault that took place, Harbaugh clearly had to bite his tongue multiple times because he was visibly upset.
“Yeah, two of our players were assaulted,” Harbaugh said. “You saw the one video — the 10-on-1. It was pretty, pretty bad. I’m going to let our athletic director Warde Manuel address it with the authorities. I’d like to talk about the football game the rest of the way. Maybe Warde will come up and talk after and give more detail to it. But it was pretty open and shut.

It is going to be very interesting to see what ends up happening to the Michigan State players who were involved in the assault.
Nation, what do you think should be the penalty for the MSU players who were caught on video assaulting a Michigan player?
