Michigan State linebacker Max Bullough has been suspended the rest of the season for a violation of team rules, the team has announced in a news release. The nature of the violation has not been released at this point, but the 2-time captain will be suspended for the Rose Bowl against Stanford in what would have been Bullough’s last game as a Spartan.
“It is extremely disappointing for all parties involved,” Dantonio said.
Bullough had started 40 games in a row, was a third team All-American and first team All-Big Ten, contributing 25 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, 2 pass deflections and a forced fumble. The Bullough footprint in football at Michigan State extends back to the 1950s with his grandfather and he is a third generation member of the Spartans, which includes his father, two uncles, and his younger brother who is a redshirt freshman.
“Max will forever remain a Spartan and valued member in this team’s achievements,” Dantonio said in the statement.
