MSU Interim President Teresa K. Woodroof reaffirms university's stance on Michigan Stadium tunnel investigation
Michigan State’s Interim President Teresa K. Woodroof released a statement on Wednesday about how the university is planning on aiding in the Michigan Stadium tunnel investigation.
Some Michigan and Michigan State players got into a fight in the tunnel following the rivalry game on Oct. 29. The Spartans’ two-game win streak over the Wolverines ended with a 29-7 loss.
Woodroof stated that Michigan State as a whole will continue evaluating the matter and aiding with any investigative reviews. The Detroit News’ Matt Charboneau posted Woodroof’s statement on Twitter.
“The university and our athletic department will continue to evaluate this matter and cooperate with any investigative reviews. While we do not condone the actions taken by some football players on Oct. 29, we will support our student-athletes through this process. Student success is more important than any score and I am committed to working with the University of Michigan to enable that success on the field and in all of the places where rivalry foreshortens any student’s pathway to that success.”
