Tom Izzo ‘upset’ over Big Ten punishment for tunnel fight

EAST LANSING — Tom Izzo has made it clear he does not condone or condone the roles played by Michigan State football players in an altercation with two Michigan football players in the tunnel at Michigan Stadium.

But the Hall of Fame basketball coach adamantly disapproved of the Big Ten’s decision to slap MSU with the largest fine in conference history on Monday.

“Yeah, I’m completely distraught,” Izzo said shortly after the conference released a statement about the Oct. 29 football incident. “I think getting a $100,000 fine – suspending a player is fine, but getting a fine like that and then the other school gets reprimanded, what does that mean? ” reprimand “?”

Nearly a month after the altercation that led to charges last week for seven MSU football players, the Big Ten has broken its silence on the situation. That included the $100,000 fine that topped the $40,000 sentence imposed on UM basketball coach Juwan Howard for punching a Wisconsin assistant coach in February.
