Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo is "absolutely upset" by the Big Ten conference punishment it imposed on Monday following the post-game tunnel dispute at the Michigan State-Michigan football game in Ann Arbor on Oct. 29.
The conference officially fined Michigan State $100,000 and suspended eight players for their roles in the tunnel fight. Michigan, on the other hand, was hit by a public rebuke.
It's that second part, Izzo said Monday, that doesn't make sense to him.

"What the hell does scolded mean? I told you guys I'm completely upset with what our players did as [football coach] Mel [Tucker] was," Izzo said of MLive's Kyle Austin. "I would think they should get upset administratively about how the tunnel was handled and how these players walked in there. Like I said, what starts badly ends badly. So if they've been blamed enough, they must have found something wrong. If it had been handled properly, there would have been no second part.”
Seven Michigan State players have been charged over their role in the incident, which followed Michigan's 29-7 win on Oct. 29. The Big Ten noted that the seven players "were involved in hitting, kicking, or using their helmet" to hit Michigan players on The Tunnel. One of those players, Khary Crump, was seen brandishing his helmet at a Michigan player. He was charged with assault.
Izzo repeatedly said he did not condone the actions of Michigan State players that day. But this problem, he believes, should have been seen and solved by "adults" long ago.
After all, this is not the first problem that arises when two teams share the same tunnel.
"It also really disgusts me that it wasn't handled on the front end because they had an issue with Ohio State a year ago, Penn State this year and then we get a $100,000 fine and there's a reprimand." said Izzo. "Well, what the hell does a reprimand mean? What does it stand for?
"I'm disappointed and I'll keep saying it. Don't read into it that I'm confirming everything that happened. I'm not confirming the two players that ran in there, I'm not confirming the guy rubbing his head. I do not confirm that adults had the opportunity to make sure [Tunnel] was safe.
"Adults. I'm not happy with that."
The state of Michigan was fined $100,000 last month for its role in the Ann Arbor tunnel incident. The "adults," Tom Izzo said, aren't being blamed enough. (AP/Darron Cummings)
