Lewan Announcement Open Thread (Edit: He comin' back yo!)

Submitted by Butterfield on January 9th, 2013 at 5:59 PM

Supposed to announce at 6 EST. 

Stuck at my office in Arizona, hoping someone can give some play-by-play assuming this is being covered on the radio or tv somewhere.....

If you are talking about the Vincent Smith hit, Taylor gave the call to his teammate and his teammate did not make the play.  I was not a Taylor Lewan slappy until I heard him not throw his teammate under the bus for that major f up.  Goofy guy, but major class act.  Cannot believe he is coming back.  MAJOR benefit for all of those young stud lineman to see an All American in action.  Huge news.  I would imagine this would impact a RB recruits decision a little too (I get to run behind the best lineman in the country you say?)

Guys, let us not be so selfish. It is in his best interest to go pro. Michigan is long over due anyways for a top five pick.

There is a difference between hoping he stays and not understanding him leaving.  I think most Michigan fans want him to come back but totally understand why he would leave.

Also I doubt he goes top 5 based on the draft predictions I've seen, but top 15 is realistic.

And in other foregone conclusion press conferences Denard will announce at 7:00pm if he will insist on being drafted as a QB, at 8:00pm Al Borges will discuss how use of the Bubble Screen impacts his offensive gameplanning and immediately after the Nebraska game Trey Burke will let the world know if he plans on returning for his junior year.

I've always been quite dubious of Brian's assumptions that he was gone gone gone, especially given what he says in interviews.  I mean, the guy is a jokester, we know this.  And so he says to the media "it wouldn't be right for me to tell you before I tell my team." We should have figured there was a chance he was playing all of us.
