Mel Tucker plans ‘swift’ action after fight in Michigan Stadium tunnel

Mel Tucker said Sunday morning that he will take “swift and appropriate action” in the wake of a fight between Michigan State and Michigan players in the tunnel at Michigan Stadium Saturday night immediately after the Wolverines’ 29-7 victory over the Spartans.

The Michigan State coach, who just after the incident said he did not know what happened so he was unable to comment, released a statement Sunday on Twitter.

Michigan State coach Mel Tucker says he plans to take "swift and appropriate action" after a postgame fight in the Michigan Stadium tunnel.

“As Spartans our program has a responsibility to uphold the highest level of sportsmanship,” Tucker wrote. “While emotions were very high at the conclusion of our rivalry game at Michigan Stadium, there is no excuse for behavior that puts our team or our opponents at risk.

“In complete cooperation with law enforcement, the Big Ten Conference and MSU and UM leadership, we will evaluate the events in Ann Arbor and take swift and appropriate action.”
