Agreed, it is horrible. Although it made me notice something I never had before about the split M: below the "MICHIGAN," the silhouette of the block M appears because the box around the word flattens out the points. Kind of a nice effect.

May not be a popular opinion but I like the split M. Now I've discovered one reason why.

I was wondering how far I'd have to read before finding a disparaging post. Not very, as it turns out ...

No one has blamed RichRod for recruiting bad people yet, so that's something.

Aside, even the presence of a future All-Pro tackle (and another NFLer on the other end) couldn't save that 2013 offensive line.

Dude's a beast. I know he's not perfect but he's also not as bad as some people around here want to paint him. He had poor judgement in college... so did I. He makes a living playing a violent sport and sometimes acts violently. Congrats on the success

I guess I'll be the guy to say this and take the downvotes:

He fucking harassed the girl who accused Brendan Gibbons of rape.  If I remember correctly, he threatened her with rape, among other things.  Somebody please tell me I'm wrong here.  Seriously, fuck Taylor Lewan.  He didn't represent Michigan well.  I know, he had a cool tandem bike, and a moustache tattoo, but he was a complete asshole otherwise.  I don't think of him as fondly as some here on MgoBlog.

He was expelled.  That's not the same as convicted, but he got a hearing, the university considered evidence, and told him to GTFO.

See - https://www.michigandaily.com/sports/former-kicker-brendan-gibbons-expe…

So while I'm reluctant to say to hell with Lewan (who may just be a dumbass who thought he was having his teammate's back when he was - allegedly - engaging in witness intimidation of a particularly noxious variety), I can say this:  To hell with Brendan Gibbons.

On one hand, he came back to play another year when he would have been a sure-fire first round pick, at a time when the team was not exactly thriving.  That speaks a lot to his character and values.

On the other hand, there was all the other stuff - punching the dipshit from OSU, reportedly backing Gibbons in a reprehensible way, acting the fool at the bar, etc.  Apart from the Gibbons business, I could get past it, I suppose.  But the Gibbons stuff ... yeesh.
