A lawyer for a suspended Michigan State football player alleges that it was a Michigan player that started the postgame brawl that ensued in the tunnel following the Oct. 29 game. 

David Diamond, a California-based attorney, told MLive Tuesday that the Michigan player put his helmet on and his head down as if he was going to "charge" Michigan State players in the tunnel after the Wolverine won 29-7. 

“It’s our claim that he tried to throw the first punch,” Diamond said. “Whether it connected or not, we’re not there yet.”
