What bothers me about the mixed reactions regarding Gholston(and Rush)'s actions is that we have a very specific standard that we can compare this kind of play to: Conboy/Tropp's attack on Steve Kampfer. The Kampfer incident was a clear attempt to cause injury by at least Tropp, and both offending players were booted from the MSU team as a result of that incident. Here, we have 3 actions of Gholston showing the intent to injury, where two of those actions (the punch and helmet twist) occurred after the whistle and one of those actions (the helmet twist) was premeditated. For those of you readers that think the one-game suspension is either adequate or as much as can be reasonably asked, ask yourself how you felt after watching Kampfer get suckerpunched in the back of the head followed by a slash to the neck. And that was in a game that Michigan was winning handily against MSU, meaning this issue is entirely score-independent.
