Long live Taylor Lewan!
Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
Long live Taylor Lewan!
Yeah, him too!
A Michigan man either way
NOT “was”… IS!!!
I think we know one of our team captains for next season.
I thank you, Devin and Shane thank you, and my son is wondering why my eyes were watering when I bear-hugged him!
A fucking STUD!!!!
I like it obviously, but even more than liking that he's coming back and how that will improve our team, I like the reasons he wants to come back. I like how he talked about team, helping the young offensive lineman, being a leader of Team 134, and helping the team get a B1G championship. Hoke et al. are really doing an excellent job of instilling the proper perspective, attitudes, and leadership qualities of what a team should be. Not many people would pass up millions to come back and help their college team improve. These past few classes of seniors has really impressed me by how they've all seemed to buy into what Hoke et al. are saying, especially for a group that he didn't recruit. They are some good people.
Hoke is the perfect figurehead for a university and I like what we have here. Two quality coordinators (when combined, one might be a lot better than the other individually, lol) a quality staff, and a coach who sets the tone.
I don't think this decision had any bearing on whether he was a "Michigan Man" or not. 90/100 of us would have made the leap after a great individual season and a Top 10 projection. I'm thrilled he's coming back, but shocked frankly. He didn't need to leave millions on the table and come back for a 5th year to earn the "Michigan Man" designation.
Welcome back, Taylor. Hope it pays off for the individual and team.
I agree that he would have been a Michigan Man regardless, but I think people are focusing too much on the money. If you go pro, you forfeit your college eligibility forever. If you stay, as long as you don't get hurt, the money will still be there in a year.
Yeah, but that “don’t get hurt” can be an ass-biter. Ask Matt Barkley. Taylor definitely has a set of Iron Q on him. “77” should be made a legend number after this.
Or you could ask Jake Long, who was a projected high draft pick, stayed, and raised his stock further. As it turned out, that's what Lewan did.
Yep. As I said “77” should be made a legend number! You have to love those number 77’s!
for bringing Taylor Lewan to Ann Arbor.
Couldn't be more happy. Had some really cool things to say as well. Really tells you a lot about the culture around campus and in this program.
the call for Muppets!!! This is our best win of the season. (ouch)
Calls for some Kate!
Now run the damn ball!
Dang! This means we have one less scholly to offer for the 2013 class. /s.
Awesome news. Pay attention recruits who are undecided. Actions speak louder than words. UM and coach hoke must be a great thing worth sticking around for. Come here and experience the same.
Now we know, the other seat on his twosie is for his giant cojones
I couldn't resist asking some of my Sparty friends how their weeks going, lol.
Those who stay will be champions!
...to have been so very, very wrong.
This is HUGE for next season. Mr. Lewan, I hope you have an even better campaign in 2013.
Majority of people here were completely wrong. I'd love to have another year of college. Of course I don't make millions but I also not on the Michigan football team.
Despite the fact that it is January and in the low 40s and somewhat damp outside, the rainbow appeared all the same...
Definitely, we look forward to August 31st and seeing Lewan touch the banner for yet another season...
What a great day!!! Derrick Green canceling his visit to Auburn, El Generico was signed by the WWE, and now this?!?!? Go Blue! Our o-line looks a lot better now!
Oh happy day!!
I had the chance to meet Taylor Lewan after the spring game a couple years ago. He is one of the nicest athletes I have ever met. Next year will be fun to watch!
You must not be a donkey.
Hats off to you, Mr. Lewan!
Lewan: Where I am projected to go?
Agent: Somewhere around pick 5. You should make millions.
Lewan:Who picks 5 and what do they need?
Agent: The Lions and um well everything. Look at it as chance to replace another Michigan guy who is going to retire. You get to stay local and be part of the next Lions rebuilding project.
Lewan: Go Blue!
and a message to broadcast: march to your own drummer.
If he's having a blast in AA, stay. NFL, $ and middle age can wait.
I had a dancing gif.
So excited for next year!!
This deserves 1,000 GIFs from Picard to Kate Upton to twosies to something beer-related. Concern about the OLine just went from 100 to 50 in one fell swoop.
Dennis Norfleet gif anywhere?
Amazing decision. It takes a lot to pass up that money right now but I believe he is the type of kid that understands College contains the best years of your life and next year he will be a top 5 pick. Good for him
Those who stay will be champions.....
Some days you just need good news. This was one. I was hoping for commitment news. This is way classier.
Should be POS BANGS FOR ALL!!!
