Yeah, Josh Allen was  a beast this season, 84 tackles, 18.5 TFLs, 14.0 sacks, 4 passes defended, 5 forced fumbles and 2 fumble recoveries.

Devin White too 116 tackles, 12 TFLs, 3 sacks, and 2 FFs, with 5 passes defended.

The 3rd guy, Ben Burr-Kirven had an incredible 165 tackles this season.  And he was a turnover creating machine with 2 INTs, 4 forced fumbles, and 3 fumbles recovered.  Also 6 passes defended.

Bush was great this season, but just didn't put up those type of numbers.  66 tackles 8.5 TFLs, 4.5 sacks 4 PDs and no turnovers forced.

Congrats to Devin!

And I dont care if he plays or doesnt play in the Peach Bowl (yes I know he said he'd play but if I was his dad I would tell him to sit it out) he was one of the most fun LBs I've had the pleasure of watching over the past 50 years.

Best of luck in the NFL son.  You did Michigan proud!

Correct assumption but even if I was going it wouldn't change my thinking.  The final four has rendered all other bowl games completely and utterly meaningless and if Bush wants to play in the exhibition game great - have fun and dont get hurt.

But if he doesnt want to be JakeButt'd or even have the potential to be JakeButt'd I certainly cant blame him.  And my purchase of a ticket shouldnt have one darn thing to do with his decision.

He could have been Jake Butt’d In any game this year, so where do we draw the line? Should everyone just sit out against Rutger and Nebraska if they are healthy because they are saving themself for the draft?

If he wants a zero percent chance of getting hurt, he probably shouldn’t be playing football. And if your definition of “exhibition” is that it has no bearing on winning a conference championship or getting into the playoffs, I’m sure you would have been fine with Hurst and Cole and Hammer Panda sitting out the OSU game two years ago, seeing that we weren’t making the playoffs and we couldn’t win the B10. It was an exhibition game the same way this bowl game is

Seems about right.  Surprised Long didn't get some love for the 3rd team, but makes sense.  White and Bush could have switched places and I doubt anyone would have batted an eye, but all are some of the top LBs in the country.

Take a look at recent NFL drafts and B1G is severely missing especially at QB position where it's the most important position. Haskins will be the first B1G QB to get drafted at 1st round since Kerry Collins which is more than 30 years ago. There is a reason why B1G is lagging behind the rest of the country.
