Hey wait, there is some evidence of missed calls on UM penalties against MSU, including in recent years. For example, these clips come from the game two years ago, the one where some folks claim the Spartans did such nasty deeds...this is a "playlist", so each of these short clips will play in order no matter which one you click:
- Will Gholston is fouled multiple times by Taylor Lewan before finally getting up and foolishly throwing a punch. Why only one flag on this play?
- Roy Roundtree openly facemasks Johnny Adams, with no flag thrown. Why no penalty on this play?
- Craig Roh grabs Edwin Baker by the facemask, again no call. (Note the referee with a perfect view, watching the play.)
- Jonas Mouton punches a Notre Dame player, and again, there is no penalty assessed.
- Greg Matthews kicks an Oregon football player years ago, no infraction in Michigan Stadium.
By the way, it's not just in football that Wolverines play so dirty, but they are caught more often in basketball. Here's some evidence of UM Basketball players getting chucked from games and suspended for "dirty play":
