Ohio State (14) beat Michigan State (20) this afternoon in a tightly contested game by the score of 17-16. Apparently Sparty didn’t take the loss very well as the Detroit Free Press has reported that Michigan State has filed a complaint against Ohio State to the Big Ten.
The complaint relates to game film that the Buckeyes sent to the Spartans prior to today’s game. MSU defensive coordinator, Pat Narduzzi confirmed the report of the complaint and said that Ohio State tampered with the game film by cutting off pre-snap motions and shifts before plays on film of its four previous games this season.
“We had tape cut off all week, where they changed the tape, I’m not gonna lie to you,” Narduzzi said following the game.
“They send you tape and they’ve got it all cut off and you don’t get to see shifts or motions or anything else.”
“A few other teams we talked to that they played, and we compared what they were looking at on tape to what we were looking at. We’re like, ‘we don’t see any of that. We see it on their tape but not on our tape.’ So that’s something I’m sure the Big Ten office will hopefully take care of.”
The report is not clear on when Michigan State filed the complaint, but it would seem to me that Sparty should have known much earlier than today if the shifts and motion were cut out of the tape. After all, it’s not that hard to take a look at a TV copy to confirm.
While this is likely not a big deal in the big picture, if these allegations are true, I’m sure the Big Ten will be none too pleased with Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes.
