Michigan State has hit a new low for me with the reinstatement of Glenn Winston. Winston served four months in jail for a off-campus fight that seriously injured another student.
"Glenn has done everything that he's been asked to do from a judicial and a team standpoint," head coach Mark Dantonio said in a prepared statement. "He has paid the penalty for his actions -- publicly, legally and athletically -- and he worked hard to maintain his academic eligibility while doing so. We regret the entire incident, however at this time, it is important that we support Glenn socially, academically and athletically. He still has a lot of work to do."
Well I am sorry, Winston has not done enough. He should have to sit out the whole year and attend counseling sessions.
I understand these are young men, some just big kids, but there comes a time when you have to give them tough love and make them pay for their actions.
Too many times with athletes we let them skate by with a slap on the wrist. I understand he served four months but hey he is still playing football for the Spartans. Coach Dantonio needs to reevaluate this situation and remedy it soon.
