Michigan State defensive end William Gholston made headlines on Saturday for two controversial plays--grabbing the facemask and twisting the head of Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson, and punching Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan. Both plays drew flags for personal fouls, according to USA Today.
The Lansing State Journal reported that Michigan State will discuss Gholston during this week's football press conference. The Journal also reported that the Big Ten conference did not confirm whether or not they had told Michigan State about any potential violations to the conferences Sportslike Conduct Agreement.
After the game, Gholston was non-committal about whether or not he'd gone to far.
I was just trying to play with reckless abandonment, he said, according to USA Today. Just gotta watch the film. ... Everybody make mistakes when you're trying to go hard.
According to ESPN.com's Big Ten Blog, the Big Ten defines unsportslike conduct partially as Striking or attempting to strike or otherwise physically abusing an official, opposing coach, spectator or athlete. The blog also said that for similar incident earlier this month, Illinois linebacker Jonathan Brown was suspended by his team for one game.
