According to the Detroit Free Press’s Drew Sharp, Michigan State had some issues with the game film that Ohio State sent them ahead of today’s matchup.
“Narduzzi indicated that MSU complained to the Big Ten, but MSU associate athletic director John Lewandowski said MSU athletic director Mark Hollis and Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith settled the issue between them, with no Big Ten involvement.
Narduzzi told the Free Press that Ohio State cut off pre-snap motions and shifts before plays on film of its four games prior to Saturday’s 17-16 OSU win at Spartan Stadium.
“We had tape cut off all week, where they changed the tape, I’m not gonna lie to you,” Narduzzi said outside the MSU locker room. “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.””
Given some of the cold comments this week from Mark Dantonio about the current Ohio State head coach compared to the former one plus the late recruiting of Se’Von Pittman and today’s Spartan loss, it’s not likely that Michigan State is real fond of the scarlet and gray right about now.
