Man I am glad he came back. Sure, he is a good tackle and everything. But the interviews are just too great to have missed out.

And seriously, hockey players must be the toughest dudes in the world if Taylor Lewan can't get a twosie back from them...

the hockey guys have my twosie, and they won't give it back.

is singularly virtuous. 

EDIT: Made this playful comment, but then went and read the great interview, felt a little ashamed. Good stuff, thanks for posting, and thanks for your great questions, Chantel.

Fortunately I read some of her work for the Daily before she retired (a/k/a graduated), but unfortunately didn't discover her long before that.  She's so sweet and pretty (and has a youthful, girlish quality that one wouldn't anticipate knowing her only from her fine written work), that the video-conscious ESPN folks don't want to bother with what's north of her eyes.  But there's plenty up there.  Hope sometime she actually gets to write again.

Anyone else noticed that the football program seems to no longer be granting the Daily's one-on-one interview requests, while national outlets like ESPN are getting them?

Retribution for the Daily's critiques of Dave Brandon, perhaps?

Well, it's one way of looking at a pretty noticeable development. There's no reason for Athletics to be using their new and restrictive interview rules (which requires AD approval not only to talk to student-athletes, but their families as well) to freeze out the student paper.

"You'd think it'd be a lot different. But you look back and my whole career here, I've had a different guard every single year. Doing that over and over again you kind of get better at establishing chemistry. " - Taylor Lewan

I think that this, in a way, has helped him become the leader that he is on the team. He's been tasked to get used to new people almost every year and he's been the constant through it all on the offensive line. Like others, I am incredibly glad that someone with his experiences will have a year with this young unit.
