Is Michigan State's William Gholston a Dirty Player, or Was He Just Responding to Rough Michigan Play?

Upon first viewing of this video, your first thought will likely be: Damn, that William Gholston is one dirty player!

But then you see this video – which is what happens seconds before the punch – and you kind of wonder … maybe Gholston’s punch was warranted?

Uh, no. Gholston is dirty. Watch what happens after he lands on Denard Robinson on this play. He should have been ejected.

Gholston, if you’re wondering, was once an elite recruit, and we’ll probably see him playing on Sundays in a few years. This was his reaction after the game:

“I was just trying to play with reckless abandonment. Just gotta watch the film. … Everybody make mistakes when you’re trying to go hard.”

Because you want to see it first!
