Comments: Jabrill Peppers had 72 tackles, 16 for loss with 4 sacks, a forced fumble, an interception, a 2 point conversion sprint, a pass break up, and 8 quarterback hits in 12 starts. Peppers never played in a bowl game at Michigan in his 3 seasons. Peppers on November 9 Peppers on October 18 Peppers on September 6 Peppers on August 18 Peppers at Linebacker 70% of the Time. Noah Furbush didn't dress in the first two games, but played in the last 9 games with 7 tackles on punt returns, and got in on 3 other tackles. Joshua Uche played at OLB-SAM, and was in on 2 tackles against Colorado, one on special teams where he also forced a fumble; he got another tackle against Penn State, but didn't play against Wisconsin, Rutgers, Illinois, MSU or Maryland so perhaps Uche may still redshirt. Devin Gil will redshirt; when Coach Brown was asked about the SAM position for next year at the Orange Bowl he mentioned Gill first, then Metellus.

Overall, our kickoff return team has been lousy, but our kickoff coverage team has been good. Our punt return team has been good, but our punt coverage has been mediocre. We have had great success on punt blocking with 7 blocks in 12 games. Our net punting has been sub-par, but it helped us win the Indiana game. Our field goal and extra point squad has been good with only one bad game.
