Nebraska gets Ohio State game film from UCF?

In the wake of an incident in which Michigan State accused Ohio State of doctoring game film, Nebraska has asked UCF for their film from their game against the Buckeyes.


VIDEO: William Gholston definitely knocked out

Michigan State trainers told ESPN's Heather Cox that William Gholston had merely had his wind knocked out against Ohio State, but the video shows the damage was much worse than that.


Buckeyes complain about eye-gouge to Big Ten

Well, it didn't take long for Ohio St. to fire back at Michigan St. with a complaint of their own, following allegations that Urban Meyer's team handed over game film late and, on top of that, doctored it beforehand. Now, the Buckeyes have turned in a video to the Big Ten in which a Michigan St. player appears to gouge the eyes of an Ohio St. player, according to the Detroit Free Press.

In the video, which the Detroit Free Press included in their report, you can see Spartans offensive lineman Jack Allen put his fingers into Ohio St. defensive lineman Johnathan Hankins' facemask. Of course, this occurred after Hankins had Allen by the facemask, so everything that happens is a little unclear at this point.

We've got the video embed below, though it looks as though it's some kind of low quality camera pointed at some kind of low quality TV. Hankins is the player on the bottom of the pile.


Ex-Meyer staffer says he never saw tape doctored

Over the weekend, reports surfaced saying Ohio State got its game film to Michigan State late and that the Spartans at one point had found the film to be doctored in some way. Jeremy Fowler of CBS Sports is now reporting that a former Florida staffer has said that he never saw this happen at Florida while Meyer was in charge:

I spoke with a former Florida staffer who said "never once" did he see the Gators doctoring opponent's game tape. Meyer told the Free-Press he wasn't involved.

The report goes on to note that such a thing is not unheard of, and that it's not always something that a head coach has anything to do with.

According to the piece, an assistant coach from an AQ conference told Fowler that video coordinators have the tendency to send very small sample sizes in their game tape, which does meet the definitions of "doctoring."

Athletic directors from both schools met and resolved the issue, according to the Free Press on Saturday.
