Michigan’s top offensive lineman, Taylor Lewan, admitted to committing a dirty play in Michigan’s road loss at Michigan State last weekend. The Big Ten must have been watching a different play entirely. Lewan will not be suspended for twisting the helmets of opposing Michigan State players, acts he admitted were “very blatant.”

According to a report by, the Big Ten has now reviewed the incidents that were caught on camera during the television broadcast. The conference has determined no unsportsmanlike conduct had taken place, so there is no need for suspensions.

In other words, the Big Ten has allowed a player to grab a player’s face mask, twist it or give it a good tug after the play while the player is on the ground without penalty. The school has also not suspended the lineman.

“It’s tough at times, definitely when you’re in a huge rivalry game like Michigan-Michigan State,” Lewan said earlier in the week. “A couple of those were very blatant and I apologize for that.”

Michigan hosts Nebraska this weekend.

    With how soft the Michigan O-line is this year, the B1G is probably doing Nebraska a favor by letting him play.

    Of course, he plays for the B1G’s poster team, would have been shocked if anything had happened to him

    Haven’t seen the play, but there’s no way it’s worse than the stunt that the piece of shit #12 for Oregon pulled last night. He should have been tossed on the spot AND suspended.

    And this is a surprise? College-level football has been about money for a looong time. It doesn’t matter if the B1G, SEC, ACC, BIG 12 or PAC12 are involved. It is about money and we need to get used to the fact that this kind of crap will continue as long as it allows flagship teams to fill stadium seats.

    Lewis’s head could have come off and Delaney still wouldn’t have suspended him. If you play for um, you’re immune to any discipline or flags. That’s why Lewan holds on every plan and is never flagged. He’s going to have a wide awakening in the pros when he has to play legally.

    If you’d seen the video montage of this slimeball’s multiple offenses you’d be stunned, too, that the Bogus 10 is letting him walk. Money, schmoney, show some accountability and integrity, you shallow hacks.

    I guess the womyn of AA should heave a sigh of relief as Lewan will be off the streets and cannot threaten to rape them.

    Any other school outside of C’bus and the b10 would be suspending away.

    Delany sucks, the Detroit blue wall sucks.
