They just showed the Big Ten's best linebackers of the 2000s on BTN, maybe not for the first time, so I'm sorry if you all knew this.
The Big Ten has had some great linebackers in the last decade, so it was a pretty good episode. The two things that irked me the most:
No M players. I didn't expect to see Obi Ezeh or John Thompson on there, but leaving David Harris off that list is a major error in my opinion.
Greg Jones is #3. Seriously. He's above Dan Connor, AJ Hawk, Sean Lee, Chad Greenway, etc. I was dumbfounded.
The thing that made me happy is that I think we have a good shot at having a handful of guys on that list for the teens.
The list, from memory:
Paul Puzluzny (sp)
Barrett Ruud (Nebraska, pre-Big Ten)
McGaricle ?? - some guy from Northwestern I had never heard of.
