so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
It's suddenly super dusty in here.
I must have video! I assume someone's taping this and we'll have access to the presser, right?
What. A. Man.
Unselfish. Leader. Unfinished business. Can't wait. CAN'T WAIT!
Thank you Taylor! You have already established yourself as one of Michigan's greats, but now you can build on your legacy and be the leader of a big ten champion team!
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

2014 Rose Bowl, HERE WE COME!
I did not see this coming!
We are the dead.
Long live Taylor Lewan!
Yeah, him too!
The Team, The Team, The Team.
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!

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.
Strength equipment is expensive and guarantees you nothing. A strong will is free and can give you everything you want.
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)

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.
It's all about the blue, baby, yeah boy!
Now we know, the other seat on his twosie is for his giant cojones
First off - Woohoo! Great to have any experience coming back on the OL, but especially top of the first round experience.
Question that will undoubtedly be buried and lost in the exuberance of this thread but I didn't think warrented its own thread: How does this affect the ongoing recruiting efforts on the handful of OL that we have recently been in on. Is there still a spot for them or has this closed out the OL class for 2013?
The swag is back.
I couldn't resist asking some of my Sparty friends how their weeks going, lol.

Walmart Wolverines are OK in my book!
...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!
I don't know who's hair is better, John Stamos circa Full House or Denard
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.

So excited for next year!!
This might sound arrogant, and if it is, it is. We’re Michigan.
