Michigan State LB Max Bullough declined interviews the week he was participating in the East-West Shrine all-star game, knowing he’d be faced with questions about his suspension from the Spartans at the end of the season forcing him to miss the team’s Rose Bowl game. At the NFL Combine Saturday he met the media, but declined to provide details on the cause for his suspension.
“I’m not discussing it right now, it’s a personal issue, I’m moving forward from it, I made a mistake,” said Bullough. “I let down my teammates, I let down my coaches, I let down my family but right now I’m moving forward. I’ve talked to the NFL teams they all know the issue.”
Bullough was suspended Christmas night for a violation of team rules, but the specifics were never divulged by Bullough or Coach D’Antonio. The media continued to press Bullough on it, but he would not give in. He did however, give indication that it’s not an issue he feels will negatively impact his draft stock now that all 32 NFL clubs know the nature of his team rule violation.
“I’m not discussing rumors, I’m here for the NFL combine, I’m moving forward. … I’ve discussed it with the NFL teams, the NFL teams is a different discussion than sitting at this media table,” said Bullough. “They’re all aware of the situation. In reality that’s what’s important right now.’
“I’ve talked to the NFL teams, they all know what happened, the situation. Moving forward, it’s not going to affect my draft status whatsoever.’’
Bullough is forecast as a day three draft choice and is the grandson of former Bills head coach Hank Bullough.
