Michigan State football will receive the largest fine in Big Ten history for the incident in the Michigan Stadium tunnel Oct. 29. Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren levied a $100,000 fine against MSU for a fight that involved eight Spartans and two Wolverines following U-M’s 29-7 victory. That surpasses the $40,000 fine issued to Michigan basketball coach Juwan Howard for hitting a Wisconsin assistant coach in February.

While you never want to give up a double-digit lead late in a game, it’s important to step back and look at the bigger picture: that was an actual home game for Portland who took UNC to the brink and beat Villanova by double digits. After a brutal six-game stretch (and one freebie), Michigan State basketball is 5-2 overall with losses to No. 6 Gonzaga and a 6-1 Alabama team that beat No. 1 North Carolina in a four-overtime thriller. This MSU team also went 2-1 for the tourney without Malik Hall or Jaden Akins.

Pegged as a top-25 team heading into the year, the Spartans didn’t just have a few tough losses here and there; they completely collapsed. The limp to a 5-7 record was highlighted by a few blowout losses (including one to Minnesota in Spartan Stadium), a blown lead against the lowly Indiana Hoosiers, a 29-7 loss to the Wolverines and, of course, the controversy in the Michigan player’s tunnel (and subsequent suspension of eight players). In short, the 2022 season was an abject failure.

The Spartans weren’t able to overcome a lack of depth as Alabama rolled 81-70.

The Spartans didn’t quit, pulling back within single digits before losing by 11. Despite dropping to 3-2 after the loss, there were some positive developments from this game that should have Michigan State basketball fans feeling optimistic.
