Bruce Feldman did a profile on William Gholston today, most of it focused on his acts in the Michigan game last year and suspension that followed. Some interesting Michigan related notes:
1. Feldman fails to point out that Gholston used an illegal armbar to injure Lewan on the first series. Someone should send him some video of this.
2. MSU coaches claim that Gholston was just responding to repeated cheap shots by Michigan (yet ignoring the Gholston armbar).
3. MSU coaches claim 2 other schools documented cheap shots made by Michigan. All anonymous claims by MSU.
"Some around the Spartans program reasoned that while Gholston was wrong for his reaction in the Michigan game, they also noted that after studying the game film that he lost his poise after he repeatedly was cheap-shotted. They'll tell you how two other Big Ten programs contacted Michigan State after the Michigan game to inform them about cheap shots by the Wolverines that they also documented."
This can only be from the following teams if it did indeed occur the week after the game: Minnesota and Northwestern as they were the only Big Ten teams we played before MSU. This sounds fabricated to me.
4. No mention of the false claims made by MSU immediately after the game that Lewan used racial slurs to try to justify Gholston's actions.
