his face looks like a bunch of douches.
Boren not invited to NFL Combine!
That has to be why. I'd +1 you if I could.
I did it for you. Got your back. That +1 was well deserved!
....karmas a bitch.
so he can Deuche while he plays..
The NFL probably just predicted snow for that weekend and assumed he'd be busy.
Yea, hopefully he can find a team with the family values to let him skip practice/lifting on the weekends.
BOO NFL. BOO.
that he will attend all combine buffets.
Maybe he'd rather be driving his own combine.......errr... plow truck.
Call Mr. Plow, that's my name, that name again is Mr. Plow.
They wanted to make sure the caterer had the service capacity before they went ahead with the invite?
They really didnt want to have to widen all the doors at the combine.
Every time I watched OSU this year I tried to key on Boren to see how he did. He's certainly servicable, but I was never blown away by him. He also doesn't seem to have developed much physically -- except to get fatter. Who knows, maybe he'll find his way onto an NFL roster. I'm just glad that chapter in Michigan football history is now closed.

lol, Justin Boren; from his cameo appearance on Invader Zim:
I bet he's regretting the transfer now that the former CEO of Domino's is at the helm. Imagine all that free pizza.
An underappreciated classic.
is his waist measurement.
Haha...Look at this pudgy little fuck...This gave me an flashback to the early 90's of our middle school center named Brooks that had a lischp like Coach Lou Holtzssssssssssssssssh
It sounds like you might be sort of mean.
Ain't nothing wrong with mean. This is Division One football. You want nice, go play intramurals, brother.
I was just thinking of poor Brooks, who couldn't help his lisp anymore than you can help your penchant for cliche.
Of course people have more control over their literary stylings than they do over their physical shortcomings. I was, however, indulging in cliche in contrast with your rather effete response.
You're right. My comment was dickish and not funny. Sorry.
This is division 1 blogging. If you don't like him having a different point of view, go to the intramural blogs!
Actually, don't. I've been there and they're ruthless.
It looks like his eyes have swollen shut from all that pizza and doughnuts. Still, the NFL likes big fat OLs, I'm surpised he wasn't invited to the combine.
Running and Weight Lifting at the Combine? There's your answer.
No 40-yard Plow this year?
It's just as well; he won't sign with any team that won't draft his brother.
Well, the family values of the combine have completely eroded.
I effing hate the guy, but he was more than a Big Ten starter. He was a 2nd team AP All-American I believe. Unless the combine all of a sudden became much more exclusive, this is fairly shocking.
Karma's a bitch, I guess.
It's not that exclusive and he is invited. Everyone is just looking for the wrong name. He is on the roster as Benedict Arnold. Must be a Michigan alum running the combine.
(At this time) inplying that an invite might come later.
on a side note: not worth starting another new thread over.
- Brandon Saine
- Ross Homan
- Brian Rolle
- Dane Sanzenbacher
- Devon Torrence
- Chimdi Chekwa
- Cam Heyward
- Jermale Hines
Those not invited (at this time at least) include: Justin Boren, Bryant Browning and Dexter Larimore. Late additions can be added -- Browning, in particular, has played well in Shrine Game practices -- but Boren not getting an invite is surprising.
The fact that eight were at least invited vs maybe one or two Michigan Players invited is more commentary on why our past three seasons were down than anything written. It is the final stamp on the cupboard is bare theory.
of course if you thought RR failed to develop talent, you'd just think this was the final stamp on that.
It is the final stamp on the cupboard is bare theory.
Only if you believe that RR's staff was entirely helpless to prevent the legions of transfers.
Mallett - transferred to Arkansas the moment that he knew that Scott Loeffler was leaving Michigan, and Mitch Mustain was leaving Arkansas. Transferred in spite of the urging of Lloyd Carr and Rich Rodriguez.
Boren - was yanked out of Michigan by his parents, within about a day of the miling of offer letters that didn't include Zach Boren.
Clemons - left Michigan to transfer to Colorado, thanking Michigan for the experience here. By his own account, Clemons wanted more playing time and the chance to play in a pro set offense.
Who's left in the "legion"? Johnny Sears? Kurt Wermers?
out on his girlfriend and family as I write. Guy is a douche's douche.
Now he'll have LOTS of time to help dad.
that he has a dicky-doo!
Who? Never heard of him.
... I will watch it 1000 times and pretend it was 1000 different instances of a great defensive play this year instead of 1.
Me neither. I only post about people who play for Michigan.
His dad will get this all straightened out.
only after he gets done plowing my driveway, though.
"Boron!" ~ Bo Schembechler, to Mike Boren.
I'm looking forward to him turning pro so I don't have to see 3 threads every week about this guy.
Oh well, at least we're over him transferring...
season. It is easy to understand their general reticence, especially the southern teams. This is hard to explain to the fans. I did hear from a really reliable source that cannot be named, but trust me, he is an insider who really knows what is going on, that a front office staffer in Pittsburgh asked Woodley what he thought, Woodley being a former Big 10 player and all. My source was unsure what happened, but he heard something about witness protection.
Karma is a Bitch!
At least that OSU degree should get him in the door with the Omaha Nighthawks.
Boren can be a scab and then go back to picking up trash with his pops.
As a hot dog vendor! It won't save him though when he gets caught eating them all and refusing to go up more than 3 steps a minute while carrying his hot box.
Not surprising... don't know if the combine tracks measurables like complaining about having to win your starting job and refusing to work out
Who'll just show up, not enjoy the work, than bolt ... blaming the NFL's lack of family values as the reason for his leaving the combine, not the actual work he had to endure while being there.
I heard that wallmart has no family values
I am actually kind of glad this tub of goo didn't get invited for another free meal. Now he and hims Daddy and yittle brodder can ride off into the sunset once and for all and watch this MICHIGAN program come back to life. He was the start of the fall of this era of football at U of M . So go do what you do best Justin, Be a nut! A frickin Buckeye nut! What a crapy mascot, A chestnut? But leave it to the tards at the school south of us to pick out the ever dangerous nut for school mascot. Probably couldn't spell cat or dog even if you spotted them the C and A _.
GO BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go recruit your big old butt off Brady and get some defensive studs in here to help next year!
Tough luck Judas ya mealymouthed liar. Make a deal keep the deal, now your family don't mean shit to us. Boren went from alumni to a four letter word. Weird how in this case it was the sins of the son that screwed the father. Break a leg,no really break a leg.
serves him damn right!!! "Once you go red, you're career's dead" (cheesy lol)
...but you gotta think that if you were an NFL scout, you'd want to know if a guy you're interested in drafting has the mental toughness to stick it out. Boren cried himself all the way to Columbus after seeking out the media and complaining loudly to it. And then he outed himself by mocking Rich Rodriguez by dressing up as him at a Halloween party, proving it had nothing to do with his so-called family values.
Is this the guy you want to have on your team, or does he seem like a cancer in the making when things go south?
I love schadenfreude. Maybe he can drown his sorrows in a bunch of KFC Double Down (TM.) Sandwiches.
as soon as they got rid of the pie-eating contest at the combine, he really served no purpose there.
I usually don't smile at the misfortune's of others... usually.
doesn't make any sense, but this isn't going to change anything. boren is either the first or second interior lineman off the board, either low 1st round or high 2nd
You're telling me the fuckbag they dubbed "Mr. Nasty" didn't get invited?
I guess I wouldn't read that much into it. It is weird, but Boren is a good OL and despite being a douche he will be drafted. He'll probably never make it in the NFL, but so be it.
I am not going to be a jerk, but this probably doesn't need to be on the board.
You're the guy who keeps running down Coach Rodriguez.
Now I won't take ownership of much of the trashtalk in this thread, but since our local sports media never made a serious attempt at covering the real Boren story, apart from republishing the Boren Family press release, and negligently letting the "family values" meme rattle around in the media for a couple of years at tremendous cost to the reputation of Michigan and Coach Rodriguez, I don't mind if I do remind everybody of what the true "family values" story was.
I dont work in a cubicle..
I still think Boren is an ass.
when you go off your meds.
The "family support" that Justin was getting at Pickerington North led Justin to think that "somebody might call the cops," given the way that his dad was screaming at him at halftimes of his games there. That's a quote. From Justin.
I've got to tell you, because you seem like a smart young feller that just doesn't know a whole lot; I've actually been a defender of Justin Boren to at least some extent. When others called him lazy, I said there's no evidence of that. I denied the existence of any evidence that Boren didn't want to run, and couldn't put up with fast Rodriguez practices, etc.
I always thought Boren was, and is, a very good guard. Who was oddly homesick whenever he was out of Columbus.
At the same time, nobody but the Borens are to blame for the media wars over Justin's transfer. They started it, with the "family values" press realease. That idiocy dogged Coach Rodriguez for as long as he was here. In all actuality, the Borens never got enough criticism and scrutiny for what they did. It was a classic example of the Borens acting badly. The entire non-recrutiment, then the sudden offer letter, from OSU to little brother Zach, was as clear an illustration as anyone could hope for, of what Mike Boren was getting at when he helped draft the "family values" press release and then later said in a fury that he would not have his two sons playing at two different universities. Mike Boren is psycho-dad.
But again, the Borens' p.r. victim was Rodriguez. And to his enduring credit, Rich Rodriguez refused to talk about players who weren't Michigan players. He took the criticism and stayed quiet, even when people invented bizarre stories about what was the supposed "erosion of family values at Michigan." When in fact the Borens are quite likely some of the nastiest and most foul-mouthed people in East Columbus.
It is ironic that others are as entitled to their opinion (and not letting go) as you are of apparently taking the higher road and letting go. The entire Mgoblog community is very proud of you for being the bigger person. I don't think anyone portends to have more or less class than anyone unless on this blog (after all we do post cat pictures with inane sayings all the time - though why lie, it's funny almost every time).
I think this is a forum for both points to be heard. What it is not a forum for (if the point you are making is to not be name callers) is to call others names or delineate them as uneducated people who work dead end jobs because they fail to have the same opinion as you.
I don't think Justin Boren deserves the sympathy you have bestowed upon him. Any person who leaves the university, spits out his jaundiced and one sided opinion on his way out the door and then has the audacity to dress up like his former coach and have someone else dress up as his former coaches wife in a mocking fashion is not someone I will ever respect (even if I hated Rich Rodriguez which I don't).
I think we as a fan base should move on as you say, but I understand why people will revel in his pain and sorrow. There is more fact than innuendo to state that he is a douche. And I for one am happy to defend the right of Mgobloggers to say so.
You say the stupidest shit.
in something besides football. But at least he can get some coin on Ebay
Maybe NFL scouts heard Boren say "I eat guys like that for breakfast" and figured that's why he got so fat.
I hope the next job that son of a bitch has is working the drive up window at a local Columbus Arbys.
Justin Boren will be a good pro. Yeah he left us but who cares at this point.
I think unless he puts the dedication into being a better player and in better condition he will be a middling pro at best. He will however be invited to the combine and I expect him to be drafted third or fourth round. Would I be surprised if he had a successful career? Not really, but I suspect he is more likely to be an average player who hangs around the league as a back up and lot longer than he should
