Jim Harbaugh accuses Michigan State of planning pregame scuffle

Jim Harbaugh

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh was still furious with the Michigan State Spartans a full 48 hours after a pregame scuffle that he accused them of planning.

It started before the game, when Michigan State’s traditional pregame “Spartan walk” took place with Michigan players already on the field for warmups. This started a scuffle, and so infuriated Wolverine linebacker Devin Bush that he tried to deface the Spartan logo on the field.

Harbaugh doubled down on his criticisms Monday during his bye week press conference, claiming Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio and his program planned the walk to coincide with Michigan’s warmups and start an incident, referring to it as “an orchestrated stormtrooper march.”

Michigan ended up winning 21-7, and did not hide their jubilation afterward. Dantonio had firmly rebutted Harbaugh’s claims after the game and will likely do so again, but the Michigan coach isn’t prepared to let this go, even if he got the victory.
