"Lewan, 23, was arrested shortly after midnight on Dec. 1 after allegedly hitting two men outside of the Brown Jug, a restaurant in Ann Arbor. Hours earlier, Michigan lost to Ohio State 42-41 in Lewan's final game as a Wolverine.
Lewan said he was breaking up a fight, but the alleged victims and another witness refuted that claim."
Here's an old thread about it.
Hopefully I can get this to embed. If not, here is the link:
Short interview and Locker Room after the tsiO game.
The Detroit papers have been pretty much in lockstep the last two days, leading with quotes from Lewan and Schofield about UM getting bullied during recent games between the teams and the need to be tougher this year. Wojo also considers this theme in today's column.
There's a lot to be said on the topic (and MSU fans are saying some of it on message boards and in comments right now). But. . . simple question: will such rhetoric prove productive for Michigan, psychologically or otherwise, for this or future games?
I remember wondering after Gardner's interception in the end zone (and even more so after the 3 and out, poor punt etc.) if the players would start to feel the same heart tremors I was. Instead, it sounds like they rallied around each other -- I Iove the way this article describes Schofield picking Gardner up off the turf by his jersey, and other linemen rallying around him.
While it's a cliche of sports journalism to talk about how successful teams band together -- this team's bond seems real to me
So our Donkey-Hater-in-Chief was the prime feature article in this morning's New York Times: moustache tat, twosie, Dr. Hamlet III, and many hard-boiled eggs prominently featured:
Good article. It touches on what Lewan is doing from a nutritional standpoint as well as some of the efforts of Joel Totoro, the nutritionist that was hired from the Patriots, and Wellman. Lewan speaks of his motiviation to excel.
