The stories from this game just won’t end, will they? Two days ago, the Ohio State Buckeyes defeated the Michigan State Spartans 17-16 in East Lansing.

Later that day, a report came out that MSU filed a complaint with the Big Ten accusing OSU of doctoring film tape to gain a competitive advantage.

Today, the contest’s latest complaint, again via the Detroit Free-Press, deals with some extra curricular activity by a Michigan State offensive lineman:

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said today at his news conference that OSU has turned in a video to the Big Ten in which a Michigan State offensive lineman appears to poke Buckeyes defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins in the eye at the bottom of a pile.

On the play, it appears Hankins has MSU’s Jack Allen by the facemask, then Allen or Travis Jackson puts his fingers in Hankins’ facemask.

MSU coach Mark Dantonio will address media Tuesday.

Here’s a YouTube video of the alleged play, in which it appears that highly-touted Buckeyes DT Jonathan Hankins is the victim of some unnecessary poking.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing more later on in the week about this case and much more. These two teams just don’t want to stop talking about each other.
