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:
#77 Rocks the New York Times
Lewan is so awesome
Dear Lord. The smell of tuna makes me vomit before the can is even open. How one man can eat that much of it...
"Lewan took out a $3 million insurance policy, which covered career-ending injuries."
I always wonder about the insurance policies these projected top picks get. I wish there was more information out there about it.
He probably went to a large agency. Those guys can get unique injury policies. It's not for a very large amount, so it's probably with 1 carrier, but could have multiple carriers.
My guess is that his policy is up to $3 million if he has an injury that prevents him from getting drafted/ playing football or even a lower pick, as measured by an agreed upon doctor.
It is likely a Lloyd's of London brokered policy. They are more common that you think, but these are expensive, I wouldn't be shocked if the premium was $20,000 to $50,000
He consulted the team’s nutritionist, Joel Totoro, who formerly worked with the New England Patriots, to revamp his diet. Now, every morning, he eats six hard-boiled eggs and two cans of tuna and downs a shot of olive oil. After he lifts weights, he drinks a protein shake and has three more eggs, two cans of tuna and another shot of olive oil. Lunch is two chicken breasts, a side salad — sometimes with feta cheese “if I’m feeling a little crazy” — and another shot of olive oil.
For his afternoon snack, he eats three more eggs and two more cans of tuna, which keeps him going until his dinner of two more chicken breasts, a shot of olive oil and a salad with no feta if he went crazy at lunch.
“This diet has consumed my life,” Lewan said, shaking his head.
What is the shot of olive oil supposed to do, specifically? Also, has anyone else noticed how much better in shape the entire team seems to be this year? Hiring Joel Tortoro looks like a genius move already.
Why not add some lettuce, tomato, and capers and make a Nicoise salad? Just to quell the burnout factor.
It's for adding alot of good calories for bulking up.
A fun little read.
The friend I watch the games with e-mailed "I'm bringing the Times article, so you don't have to read it on line."
I also go for feta cheese when I'm feeling a little crazy. And subs.
Great article. Written by our very own Tim Rohan. GO BLUE.
Lewan does seem like a very entertaining guy -- especially the Boss Hogg-steers for his caddy and tattoo 'stache. Also glad to see the byline by Michigan's (and the Michigan Daily's) own Tim Rohan.

The diets of players always fascinated me really, but then I am not on Lewan's regimen of lifting and practices, so this diet would kill me most likely.
Great article and always nice to see Michigan and Michigan players get some love in a paper like the NYT. Thanks for sharing this.
