Michigan AD Warde Manuel’s statement on the post-game attack by MSU players

Following MSU's 29-7 loss to the University of Michigan, 9-10 MSU football players attacked WR Andrel Anthony and possibly Ja’den McBurrows in the stadium’s tunnel. It is clearly McBurrows in the video; however, Jim Harbaugh stated in post-game statements that two players had been attacked.

Michigan Athletic Director Warde Manuel had the following to say about the incident.

Warde Manuel

What happened after the game was completely unacceptable. I've talked to the (Big Ten) Commissioner; he is looking into it. We have the police also looking into it because they've seen the video. So they're addressing it. We'll leave it in their hands, but this is not how we should interact after the game. This is not the way; another team should grab a player and do what they did. It's completely and utterly unacceptable.

The Big Ten and law enforcement will handle it, but this is not what a rivalry should be about, and it's not how it should be remembered. We won the field, this man and this team and those players went out there and won. And for that to happen, it's unacceptable. That's all I'm going to say; I'll leave it to Kevin and law enforcement to handle from here on out.
