Very exciting. Michigan demolishing Nebraska will be an excellent cap to this night.
University. Why give that last year of that up!! I think the person with the largest smile on his face is Green.
Our line will be exceptional next year. #manball #goblue
for about the first 1:20 it absolutely like he was gone but then he uttered that beautiful word "but"
"but when you to a place like Michigan..." and you know things are good from there
Adjust your sound to play Opera Muppets and Lewan's press conference at the same time... it syncs perfectly! Aliens?!?!
So...we know it's almost a given of Lewan/Kalis on the left hand side. My only questions are Center and if Schofield moves back inside or stays at tackle.
I'd say my guess is Miller at C.....Schofield at RG and Braden at RT.
I think the tackles stay put - Schofield was a solid guard in 2011, but he finished 2012 as a good RT and I think it makes sense to keep him there. Miller will be at Center and Kalis at one guard.
If Bryant can't lock down the other guard spot, my sleeper pick is Erik Magnuson. He's a talented player who can play inside if he needs to. I think he'll ultimately end up at tackle, but I think he can play OG too, and I bet he'll get a chance at a starting spot.
Those who stay.
Great news, what a surprise. I guess he wants to take care of unfinished business.
getting really annoying yall keep on pumping green when he's not even verbally in yet.
Show smith some love. The guy is the 11th ranked rb on the latest scout 300 rankings and everyone here acts like we still need to find someone in this class who can be a rb for us. Sure, I want green too, but smith is no chopped liver.
Same mentality on this board earlier in the year except it was...Isaac. Smith has all the skill and 90% less hype.
Lewan's decision is good for the team - not a recruit who hasn't made a decision and therefore is not as relevant as those on the team that have.
Ironic that the guy demonstrates what a pro he is by not going pro.
Gotta love a TCB kind of player. A rare breed.
What a difference this will make for 2013.! Like signing a 6 star recruit
He's like a surprise 5-star pickup on National Signing Day.
And you know he'll start on day one.
Let's hope it is a season to remember
He deserves that 77
Wha wha WHAT?! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
As freaking happy as I am that he's coming back, I find that last gif a little disturbing.
Wow. Glad I couldn't bet on his decision...I would be lighter in the wallet.
Hope he wins the Outland trophy and becomes a top 5 pick.
"First round? Not good enough. I will be first overall, dammit!"
I went to Brian's blog site and found a lap dance.
Both Lewan and those sweet boobs
I never get tired of Kate Upton! I think we need to have a national Kate Upton day!!!
The press conference actually gave me hope... the news totally made my day, I knew it would be Muppet worthy
Hope he stays healthy and gets a championship.
That's all I've got.
I wonder if this will impact our OL recruiting.
will mean one less scholarhip is available, but do you think any OL recruit for 2013 was seriously expecting to play in 2013? Let's say a recruit takes it as a challenge he isn't willing to meet, that's worth knowing right now.
the message recruits get from this is that it's just so damn great to play on this team that the nfl can wait. it could be really good for recruiting future OL.
now, here's hoping Lewan has a great season and makes out like Jake Long in the draft next year.
I bet it impacts it - positively. If you're Cameron Hunt (or one of the other OL we're after) how would you like to spend your RS season learning from the best OL in the country? You weren't going to play anyway, but now you get to learn from and befriend a future top NFL draft pick. Sounds awesome to me.
you too can chat up a first round draft choice about your career when your turn comes.
Devin, don't worry about that left side.
And for me, wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohoooooooooooooooooo!
I Love MUPPETS!
I too, wonder about our OL recruiting, but that's a concern for another day.
Let the revelry commence!
Let the revelry continue!
Along with a great offensive line should equal an 11 win season! BCS BOWL BABY!
OH FUCK YES MOTHERFUCKER!
I was thinking I might see him here in Jacksonville, but I am happy he is staying. Those who stay will be Champions!
Shocker (not in the gross way).
- -DG's backside protected
- -Best recruit in next year's class
- -Best thing that could have happened to the new 12,13 studs on the OL (benefits of mentorship and watching an all american practice/play)
- -Could possibly be a top 5 pick after Clowney buzz and significant SR season
- -Could help impact some young RB recruit's decision
Good, good and more good. Wait a minute...more good. Lewan just went into a different strata of Michigan lore...all 3 penalty games are now forgiven.
...all 3 penalty games are now forgiven...
Should read: All 3-penalty games in the past are now forgiven.
Future NFL #1 picks should be penalty free....
Michigan vs Huskers, Green disses Auburn, and Taylor is coming back??!!! Not to mention, had my yearly review at work today. 7% raise coming my way in March. BEST....BIRTHDAY...EVER!! Hail from across the lake!
Green disses Auburn? What did I miss?
Congrats on the raise!
of Jon Jansen and "the last 77" aka Jake Long before the start of the season. Both of those gentlemen stayed for their last year of eligibility. I wonder if either/both of those conversations had anything to do with his decision,
According to Taylor, a 30-45 minute conversation he had with Jake Long was on his mind a lot.

You didn't have to, Taylor, but you did. Here is to Team 134!!!
