ANN ARBOR - For what its worth, Taylor Lewan didn't speak with the media during today's availability at Michigan - and the left tackle won't be made available this week in the days leading up to Saturday's game against Michigan State.
Needless to say, he won't be available to comment on any lingering feelings regarding last year's loss at Michigan State - a game in which MSU defensive William Gholston punched Lewan as Lewan appeared to help him from the turf following a play.
Here's a refresher:
"Everybody wants to look at me and William Gholston and what happened, but the fact is, we lost that game for the fourth year in a row," Lewan said in July at the Big Ten media days in Chicago. "That's something we've got to fix."
“I was just trying to play with reckless abandonment," Gholston said after last year's game. "Just gotta watch the film. … Everybody make mistakes when you’re trying to go hard.”
The Big Ten suspended Gholston for a game, and Gholston apologized for his actions.
Michigan receiver Roy Roundtree commented on the situation, labeled as "the punch," this afternoon.
"I just know the punch, or whatever, it got someone in trouble, and he got suspended and I know they don't want that to happen again," Roundtree said. "We feel like it's going to be a game where, you've got to get your mind right for it."
Michigan State's media availability is tomorrow. No word yet as to whether or not players will be made available in East Lansing.
