Taylor Lewan On Ohio State: ‘It’s Not A No. 3 Team In The Country’

ANN ARBOR (CBS DETROIT) –  The question posed to Michigan senior left tackle Taylor Lewan centered around what steps the offensive line took forward in Saturday’s near-upset of Ohio State. The followup query suggested elements that had improved.

Yet somehow Lewan’s response veered into an indictment of the undefeated-for-a-second-straight-year Buckeyes, who defeated the Wolverines 42-41 in a surprise thriller Saturday afternoon.

“More physical, better targeting – it’s not a No. 3 team in the country,” Lewan said at the podium after the game. He stopped, shrugged, then added, “Yeah, we played more physical.”

On the one hand, Lewan’s statement is not completely out in left field. How could a team that is supposed to be a contender for the national championship allow a struggling Michigan team to rack up more than 600 yards of offense? Time will tell, but giving up that much yardage to any team is hardly a good sign.

On the other hand, a parting shot across the bow on the way out the door – after a loss, no less – seems rather unsportsmanlike.
