Michigan State linebacker William Gholston is talented and as physically gifted as any player in college football, but he also showed an unfortunate side of his game on Saturday in two separate plays against Michigan.
Gholston had two personal fouls in the Michigan/Michigan State game caught on camera, and needless to say they were ugly. In the first instance, he not only hit Denard Robinson late but then grabbed his facemask and twisted it putting his neck in an awkward position to say the least.
Brutal indeed, but he wasn’t done there. Later on in the game Gholston delivered a blow to Taylor Lewan’s helmet which brought on yet another yellow flag.
And here they are.
No excuses, and it’ll be interesting to see if he is disciplined at all now that these scenes have gone viral.
