MSU Fight Development: Fight Over a Woman
The FreeP, in a big ass story (four pages!), recounts how Mark Dell has recounted to his father the circumstances surrounding the fight that sent two Spartans off the team and eight presumably off the bowl roster.
Winston was dancing with someone's girlfriend shortly after the PSU loss when he was "jumped by a couple of men."
Friends agreed to come with him after the team banquet to Rather Hall, which is across the street
Dell claims to not have participated but lied to Dantonio about being present
The fight occurred ninety minutes after the banquet ended (unreal)
Cunningham also alleges to have not been physically involved
Dantonio may have had two different meetings with players - implied by the following
Parents were notified by Dantonio on Tuesday of looming suspensions
On November 21, an MSU player was cited outside the bar for public urination and minor in possession and will be arraigned Thursday
The fight may have been part of an ongoing feud between the team and the fraternity
Dell Sr. alleges players 'circled the room' and were preparing to leave when a commotion and small fight lasting less than a minute occurred
Dell Sr. said the only thing his son was guilty of was bad judgment and lying to Dantonio when the coach initially asked him if he was present during the incident. He also said Dantonio spoke to the players individually and all initially denied being a part of the incident.
Those wishing to give the FreeP an additional click can find the article rather easily. It should be interesting to see who the arrest was (perhaps Jenrette?) though it should be easily found once the arraignment occurred. The article says Thursday for that so I would assume, as this article was released tonight, they mean in seven days.
