Mr. Plow. That's my name. That name again. Is Mr. Plow.
There isn't another player in the history of college football who I dislike more than Justin Boren. Good riddance to this chump. A Michigan win on Saturday would feel really good...
as it has nothing to do with a Michigan football player.
Goodbye Justin Boren. Enough of you.
FYI somebody negged your post. No idea why.
I would disagree with the argument that it should be OT. It's about a former Michigan football player who currently plays for our most hated rival, who we just happen to play in a few days. It's also just a weird story to begin with. Whether it's relevant at this moment, I don't know.
It will be relevant until the last time "accusations of a decline in family values" is used by some idiot sports columnist. Until that time, it most certainly will have something to do with everyone who plays for Michigan, to the extent that it has contributed to the @#$%storm surrounding the program since RichRod's arrival.
No, sir ... definitely not OT.
Can eat a crap sandwich.
Without the bread.
allow him to have toppings and/or condomints?
Boren's a fat pig and I can't wait until we never hear about him again
Can someone please explain to me what happened to all of Bouje's points? I know he has some... issues sometimes, but IIRC he had a couple thousand points not to long ago.
He bitched like a Bouje when his thread trying to sell Wisconsin tickets got taken down. He started spamming every thread bitching like only Bouje can, in turn they docked him several thousand points.
Lesson to all, don't act the fool. Thanks for the info OMG. I had wondered myself about that.
I posted that thread trying to sell my tickets. They deleted the thread and brought me to 0 points.
In order to start a new thread and bitch out whoever did it I decided to bring myself to 50 points by spamming old threads.
So no I wasn't docked 8k points for spamming it was for posting a thread about tickets I was selling to the game that was that weekend.
But there is a dedicated ticket sticky...
I played by their rules and someone does that.
You were docked several points for being a jackass and THEN you spammed the board like a 4 year old little girl who had her doll taken away. I sincerely apologize.
How in the fuck is posting something about tickets that no one had emailed me about for weeks not okay. Hell for Illinois someone did the exact same thing and the mods allowed it until he sold them.
If they had deleted my post and said "hey don't post this or else" I wouldnt have posted it. But I'm the one who acted like a child not someone on a power trip.
So you decided the appropriate thing to do was meltdown and spam the board?
And call BS to the mod that did that.
I didn't do it to any current threads. It didn't hurt anyone.
Hell I could just go back and comment on every thread in the new blogs history and nobody would probably ever know unless someone is watching me that closely which.. Doesn't people have better things to do...
You really are special.
isn't this little discussion kind of like the slow kid on the block telling everyone else how slow the other slow kid is so that no one makes fun of him for being the slowest?
Close, but I have never once whined like a little bitch about getting negged or having threads or posts deleted and I definitely get my fair share of negs and posts deleted for going over the line.
perhaps it's because you have a history of being a major dick?
That have tons of points and none of them had that happen to them.
I think it's interesting that David from Wyoming becomes a mod and then that happens. He's always respected me as a poster....
Thats just my speculation though.
I have more points than you.
I see you had yet another meltdown. I hope you get better.
Seriously what the F man?
The story is old now, and despite the fact that no reporters ever seemed to want to touch it, the "famliy values" knock on Rich Rodriguez was inevitably defeated by the truth and the balm of time.
I wish this was true. Unfortunately, RR has not been able to shake the "family values" label at UM. Glad you posted this, I've never heard of the non-scholarship offer to Zach before.
Anyone who still clings to the "lack of family values" meme has literally no idea of what goes on in Ann Arbor and Schembechler Hall.
In the words of Pimp Masta Brandon: In all due respect, they know 5% of what I know.
Did I ever say that I'm clinging to the family values meme? No. It's still out there, tho.
But, thanks for the kneejerk reaction anyway. And for your 'inside info' as to what "literally goes on in Ann Arbor and Schembechler Hall" you twit.
My "inside info" is several friends who work for the football team or play on it. Twit.
Also, I wasn't referring to you specifically, but rather the people you referenced that think that. Twit.
EDIT: And you don't even fucking need "inside info." Just listen to player quotes, reports of the highest team GPA in team history, Pimp Masta Brandon quotes, etc. Rich Rod, off the field, is running an admirable program.
EDIT2: And I didn't mean the original comment to make it seem like I know 20x (MATH!) what the average person knows.... that was DB's quote. I'm just saying that anyone who perpetuates the family values meme doesn't really know jack shit about what's going on in AA, they just know shitty newspaper headlines.
So...we agree, then. I don't know what happened there. Probably too much caffeine for me. Sorry 'bout that.
It's all good in da hood
/drunk on biggest bar night of the year even though I stayed home and downed about 5 cap'n and cokes
Siss boom bah...
Yeah that whole Elliot and Brock Mealer thing shows how little he cares about his players. Give me a break.
The narrative from the MSM has been clear. Examples:
Again...all I did was point out that the meme is there and that I wish it wasn't.
That's because the Borens and OSU wanted it that way. Lots of people here in Columbus believe the rumors that little Boren got his scholarship as a condition of Justin defecting to the Bucks. I have no I'll-will towards Justin. He did what he could to help his brother. Zach, on the other hand, that punk spews more anti-Michigan shut than any player without the last name Boone. I hope he gets leveled in pass protection by Martin or Roh.
Damn my iPhone's auto-spell, etc! You all get the point. Go Blue!
I love that funking autospell, that shut is the bomb.....
Whatever his older brother's problems, Zach seems like a tough competitor. Let's just hope both of them have bad games Saturday.
Section 1 needs to get a damn hobby
There is at least as much fact and substance behind it as there is the meme that Boren was a lazy fuck. In fact, his post was MUCH more levelheaded than the assholes that trash Boren.
The man beats dead horses like they own him money. Jesus Christ I think he wrote almost ten 10,000 word essays on the threat of the Freep to the human race.
The man beats dead horses like they OWE him money.
The man beats dead horses like they OWN him, money.
I can't decide which one I like more. But really Bieber... glass houses.
I'd much rather have the player that hates donkeys than one who is dumb enough to loan money to dead horses.
He may indeed need a hobby, but IMO every damn one of his posts has been well-written and insightful. That's worth something, I think.
But he's right.
Also, I want to punch your avatar so much.
Do you have any concrete sources for stating that Boren left because Zach Boren didn't get an offer? I was under the impression that he was going to get offered soon before the whole Boren fiasco.
Actually, I think that Scout link is wrong in one respect; I think Justin also had an offer from Kent State. He did not have a Michigan offer, ever, as far as I know and I challenge you to show that he did.
Justin did, by all accounts, attend every Michigan camp he could, and took every opportunity to impress Michigan coaches. By Justin's own account, he had a closet full of Michigan apparel and paraphenalia. Later, by his own words, put into a bunch a boxes and given away.
He did not have a Michigan offer, ever, as far as I know and I challenge you to show that he did.
Didn't mean to imply in my reply that he had an offer. I thought that he was going to get an offer but never did once the Boren family turned on RR. FWIW Rivals also doesn't list a Michigan offer for Zach Boren.
Also, that looks like a link to his profile on Scout. I couldn't find the article that claims that Justin Boren left Michigan because Zach Boren didn't get an offer.
for the content you cannot get anywhere else.
Hopefully we can make his final game quite miserable with an upset win!
the Boren narrative about how Rodriquez is a bad guy and not a "Michigan Man" took hold to a degree, fueled by those that were anti-RRod from the begining. It pisses me off.
It has nothing to do with the Borens, who will play some more football in Ohio, and then perhaps get into the landscaping business.
It has everything to do with our head football coach, and how a two-year slander of Rich Rodriguez festered, without the correction that the mainstream press owed to everyone.
and how a two-year slander of Rich Rodriguez festered, without the correction that the mainstream press owed to everyone.
Exactly. It's clear that RR was undeserving of this type of treatment. Especially when compared with what is happening with Dantonio in EL. Rodriguez has had his name dragged through the mud enough in regards to this and it's truly unjustified.
on Cleveland.com, about Terrelle Pryor and Denard Robinson, a very respectful discussion about the significance of the meeting in this week's game, some relevant recruitment history, with comments from OSU players:
"I have a couple of buddies who are Michigan fans and that's all they do is talk about Denard," OSU defensive lineman Cameron Heyward said. "I think he's in his own class right now. I would vote for him as my Heisman winner."
and Minnesota coach re: the excitement of seeing Denard play, and former OSU QB Cornelius Greene pointing out that this will be the first Ohio State-Michigan game featuring two African-American starting quarterback since Greene and Michigan's Dennis Franklin led their teams in 1973 and 1974.
[Sorry. Still don't know how to do the yellow boxes.]
There's a little button that has a double quote in it. Highlight the text you want yellow-boxed and click that button. Should work great. (It won't show up in yellow in the editor, but it'll indent it.) It's a little finicky as far as getting only the stuff you want in the box and avoiding extra boxes, but it works pretty well.
[Sorry. Still don't know how to do the yellow boxes.]
Aha! Thanks guys.
There's a little button that has a double quote in it. Highlight the text you want yellow-boxed and click that button. Should work great.
Edit: Damn it...
Blockquoting is actually pretty easy. When you're done typing your comment, go down to the option underneath the text box that says "switch to plain text editor" and click that. It will switch to HTML coding.
Then just put <blockquote> at the beginning of the text you want to quote and </blockquote> at the end.
EDIT: BlockM beat me to it. And wait a minute, there's an auto-quote option?!? I can't believe I never noticed that before.
You dont leave UM to go play for the bastards down south. Thats like Jeter joining the Red Sox, Potter teaming up with Volemort, or Lloyd Brady turning communist...
Glad to see him go and I hope Mike Martin gives him one from The Team this weekend. A clean shot of course.
Family Values! Really!
MGoPoints if Spoof Football and his trolling buddies would go away.
Does it get tiring being a fucking idiot?
We are probably already gaining a reputation as nothing more than a juvenile group of people who do nothing more than call each other names, excuse the repeated, HUGE and embarrassing failures of a head coach who is at best a fish out of water, and at worst a "snake oil salesman" who is a complete fraud, and blame everything on defensive coordinators who are forced to coach a defense that is more gimmicky than junk bonds, while working with a staff laden with cronies and holdovers who do nothing more than get Rodriguez his morning coffee and hold up a mirror so Rita can dump another forty pounds of fluorocarbon-filled hairspray onto her West Virginia mullet.
That's a really long sentence. And I have no idea what it's about.
leaves no doubt in my mind that Spoof Football is a WVU fan, still acting like a jilted psycho girlfriend after all these years.
Syracuse 19, West Virginia 14
40 players have left under RR watch huh? care to name them dipshit
While your stupidity and negative point total are impressive, it's comments like this ...
... hold up a mirror so Rita can dump another forty pounds of fluorocarbon-filled hairspray onto her West Virginia mullet.
... that should get you banned.
Don't like Rodriguez? Ok, whatever. But clearly you are just an asshole, and because of that, I will be negging you until you're gone.
I'm calling you an asshole because you sound like an asshole, and a racist one.
But thanks for posting again so I could neg you again.
You really speak from a position of authority...
UM fans have no class for attacking a kid who threw his team under the bus?
Save the "it was only about RR" bullshit... The whole team has had to deal with the negativity he helped fuel with his vague (cowardly) parting shots .
Then you turn arround and attack the man's wife?
You're an asshole, because you're an asshole.
That spells quit...and he'll never out live that trait...
I did not know the whole story. Very interesting that the family values comment was correct and totally incorrect at the same time. And in both respects wrongly reported.
Did RR do his due diligence on Zach's placekicking? That's all I want to know.
Who cares about the boren's none of them were as good as thier dad any way *uck that!!!! and him I hope we go in the shoe and play the best game we've ever plyed
Dude, Justin won the lifting contest right before he left. He was no slouch. Give him a break. If you wanna bash a Boren, bash Zach for spouting his mouth off last year at Michigan Stadium.
I don't know if I would ever say that to anyone, even him.
My mantra: don't get caught saying something you wouldn't tell a person if you were caught in an abandoned alleyway with him.
Boren can eat a crap sandwich.
Boren can eat an entire Golden Corral.
You know what? I wouldn't have a word to say about Boren if all he did was transfer to Ohio State. His family happens to be in Columbus - I can dig that. The rivalry is the rivalry but if he wanted to leave Michigan to be closer to his family, I can't ever blame anyone for putting their own actual family over everything else. I'd still see him as a Buckeye the same way I see all Buckeyes - nothing more, nothing less. No special treatment either way because he used to wear a Michigan uniform.
But fuck him for leaving the way he did, with parting shots as he walked out the door, designed to cast Rodriguez in as negative a light as possible, without actually accusing him of anything, and therefore never having to defend any accusations. You got a complaint, man up to it and own it. You don't, then fine, give the usual one-liner about "making the best decision for me and my family" and leave it at that. For that, Boren's the biggest douchebag in football. Pure lack of class. Pure, 100% shithead, and may he choke on a bag of dicks while having a 12-foot pole jammed up his ass. If anyone can tell which end that is.
I bet Gunnery Sgt. Hartman is somewhere yelling about a disgusting fat body. Next Halloween, Boren should go as Pvt. Pyle.
seven six two millimeter, full metal jacket.
Yeah, I mean, I know I shouldn't make judgments on people based on their ability (or lack thereof) to dress themselves, but holy fuck that is a disaster. That's the guy that people listen to about things like class and family values?
he could at least get himself a collar stay. jeez.
'08 and '09. He won't get his third pair until Saturday. Knock on wood.
Transfer sit-out year.
Maybe the Bucks gave him a pair of pants for 2007. ;-)
including players who are red shirting or sitting out for transfers.
I'll take my Michigan education over any set of gold pants.
How does number of pairs of those stupid "gold" pants reflect on intelligence? It does not at all.
Cya Justin Boren. Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.
Can eat a dick up til he hiccups.
I actually feel sorry for him. His father, who should have known better, doomed him to live the life of a traitor for a petty reason.
and the plow you rode in on.
he left. Who cares?
He's a jackass. Justin was a 20 year old man who should be responsible for his own decisions, not go to some school and then spout lies because his daddy isn't happy. If he wants to be considered a real man, act like a real man, make decisions for yourself, and especially do not spout lies about a man of character as you leave.
What the hell does the term family values really mean.
Is that you put the family above all else?
What if your family is littered with assholes? What are your values then?
I always found the term humorous because it is so ambiguous.
Judas came back the fall after he left, by invite to a party with ex-roomates. He was either stupid enough or ass-bag enough to come in his Suckeye colors. HE WAS ASKED TO VACATE THE PREMISES. His mouth ran like a sick ducks butt and lost all credibility. Should have been thankful he was released to go there most make transfers leave conference.
Justin is a whining, masturbating-under-the-sheets, crying ass. Living near him for one semester, it was clear that he never grew out of his comfort zone and never acclimated to the team. Maybe, maybe I'll buy that he left because his brother (whom I met, decked out in Michigan gear) didn't get a scholarship offer. But mostly, I think it's because he never made friends, never fit in, and saw an easy out when Rodriguez took over.
He should hope his NFL career works out. He won't be as successful as Mike and he won't have a Michigan degree to back him up. In this day and age, staying in Columbus forever is not a wise choice.
Justin "Family Values" Boren "cusses out" people during OSU's practices with a "nasty streak" and even deliberately hits players late.
Somebody re-post the pic of Justin & his girlfriend dressed (unflatteringly) as Rich & Rita Rod for Halloween after he transferred. Kid's a doosh and a traitor and I hope Martin & Company are targeting him and his little bro for some Wolverine nastiness on Saturday.
Actually, the picture is what it is; Justin, at a Columbus Halloween party. Gal-pal dressed as a Playboy bunny. Apart from Justin getting one last wearing out of all of the Michigan gear he'd be throwing away (the now-obsolete red wristband was a nice touch; the Carr-era Nike shirt was an error), the real hate-shot is aimed at Rita Rodriguez. [Rita = some kind of professional slut.] Charming. It's them family values, all over again.
But what I love about this picture, and what I have always loved about this picture, is that what we see is clearly a guy who absolutely doesn't give two shits for what anybody back in Ann Arbor thinks, least of all his former (albeit for a matter of a just a few weeks) coach and the Michigan program.
And yet, if indeed Justin was one of the guys interviewed by Mike Rosenberg for the infamous front page Free Press hit-job on Michigan and Rodriguez, we were supposed to believe that anonymity was given to those interview subjects because they "feared retaliation from coaches..."
I can't tell -- is that "fear of retaliation" that Justin is showing in that photo? Or is it the Bud Light?
To Justin Boren:
Man of the country's shame! Boren! Thy kind
Have written thus thy epitaph. And yet
I grieve for thee, and wish I could forget
The traitor, when your story comes to mind,
And love the patriot. I am not resigned
To thy bad destiny of fame. I'd let
Thy name quite pass from the world's book
All memory of thee aside to find
A friendly shelter 'neath oblivion's wave.
I weep that men -- like me -- can fall so low;
And yet thou wast not all unworthy, though
Thy baser call thee base, and the world praise.
Still, spirit of the dead, I cannot brave
Thy presence to me! Go thy restless ways!
-- thanks to Bill Wilkinson for the original
We have to win. That's the only right end to the story.
Summary: My second son didn't get a scholarship to a school that doesn't use FB's...I'm going to cry about it.
It's Thanksgiving Day.
Won't make fun of Boren yet.
That comes Saturday.
I don't boo people generally in college football, but this is one asshole I plan on booing Saturday when I'm at the game rooting the Wolverines onto victory!!!
So long and don't let the door hit you in your ass!
