You do remember him cratering everywhere he went, right?
Joe Boisture to transfer from MSU
I guess you could say he's been "Dantonio'd". Because, you know, every single transfer is 100% the fault of the head coach.
Those are the ground rules from this day forth. +1.
No Thank You. He is transferring because he is not good probably, no offense to him, but we can do better.
Who is MSU's backup QB with Boisture's departure?
He will be attending Florida Atlantic.
Correction: MAC-esque bound.
And isn't Gardner > Boisture, anyway? And wouldn't going after Boisture be too much of a signal that Michigan is going to go with statues at QB, which could raise alarm bells for Denard ... and possibly Gardner?
Does he come with a ski mask or is that sold separately?
Just to let the mgoblog community know, this is my favorite rapper.
Thank you. Who the hell is that?
Young Buck is money. I just thought the picture was very fitting for yostlovesme's ski mask comment.
Never heard of him, but I dont really listen to rap. Any songs I might know?
I can not believe I missed this whole discussion about young buck. Damn you school and all your homework assignments. Any who he has lots of well known songs. I think gettin it is his best new song out as well as I'm down wit yall
Straight out of CA$HVILLE
G-Unit that's what it is, that's what it's gon be
Dammit, I'm getting old and can't relate to the younger crowd. I just turned Larry Bird (33) and now it looks like I'm ready to join the "Down in Front" crowd. Crap.
didnt boisture finish 11th at that QB camp that only has 11 players? the one where gardner finished top 3?
He finished 12th out of 12, even though the name is Elite 11. Confusing, I know.
Sorta like the Big Ten.
no, kinda more like the B1G TEN
His senior year numbers were hilarious. They were so bad his senior year that a paper wrote a really aggressive article asking why the hell he was an Army All-American.
4 tds 8 picks and QB rating of 61. His back up had a rating of 77.
the author is surprisingly passionate
A CMU blogger at MLIVE wrote this one.
Schmid: Look if you guys from Michigan want to keep beating me up about a selection. I already had you calling in about Edwin Baker [2009 Michigan State commit] last year. I understand that Joe has taken a lot of grief for his year at Saline.
I have no affiliation or affinity for the University of MIchigan. I cover Central Michigan sports for a website called MLIVE. I am not trying to condemn the decision or make Joe look bad. I am simply interested as a college football fan how a player with twice as many interceptions as touchdowns could be selected to the most prestigious All Star game in the country.
Schmid: What do you want us to do...un-invite him? That's not going to happen. I have nothing else to say to you.
I remember something like that. But didn't the Freep gush about him?
Likely won't happen as your cannot receive a football scholarship at another big ten school.
The Big Ten.
No thanks. You know how the old saying goes, once you go Sparty you can always fuck off. I think this is Shakespeare.
I did remember reading that. Nice catch.
Why would anyone leave SPARTA? Are you serious? Good luck to him.
It would appear he is confused about his profession.
I only got a B in ancient greek languages, but if my translation is correct "aoo aoo aoo" means "pizza delivery."
/ stupid overused joke.
I think you meant to say "Spartan Brahthren"
Look at his offer sheet... when you're a 4* QB from Michigan with offers from just MSU and Wisconsin... you're probably overrated. Otherwise Indiana, NWestern, Iowa, Illinois, Minny, ect ect ect would've offered him too.
Who didn't see this coming? He's leaving because he sucks - he won't even start in the MAC. I've never been more stumped by a recruits ranking than with him.
I had no idea what the recruiting services were looking at. He was probably the most overrated recruit I have ever seen.
and one of our guys: Brett Gallimore. His recruiting ranking was based mostly on a clip of him blocking a guy into the kicking net on the sideline.
you guys are assholes.
hate the program, not the kid.
I am right there with you
"He's committed to my Spartans? He must be a four star so we can say we're beating Michigan at in-state recruiting"
lol i remember people doggin msu for recruiting this kid cause of how bad he was. Even though his team in HS was crap, he still did poorly at a lot of camps, and now people are bringing up the fact that we should take a look at this kid? give me a break
I didn't really follow his recruitment last year so I was not aware that he was so overrated. Either way QB is not a must for the near future as we are pretty set with Denard and DG waiting in the wings
I wouldn't go that far. While Denard and DG are viable options for the next couple of years, with Tate leaving the program via Twitter, We need another QB on the roster now.Just not this kid!
This has nothing to do with the OP but I just got accepted into Michigan! If I wasn't posting from my itouch I would post many kitten pictures
Well hell man (or gal), congrats! You will get an incredible education and have a great time for the next four years. Hopefully you also will witness four years of sports like I did (Sept '89 through May '93 - Bo, Elvis, Desmond, frozen fours and the Fab Five ain't too flipping bad.). I am jealous of all the great stuff you have to look forward to. Work hard, but enjoy it. It really does go by quickly. I know this sounds like old man advice, but it is true.
Boisture is not considering Michigan. He will either stay at State as a student or possibly Northern Illinois.
but they were in the MAC title game, they're actually good*, you must be thinking of Eastern Michigan
*well, good for a MAC team anyway
that points out we lost to Toledo not so long ago?
We didn't field a football team in 2008, silly.
because I can say with confidence that Michigan was never considering Boisture.
they have Andrew Maxwell, who is alot better then he is
I bet, he's going to CMU, to play for Enos and his MSU light playbook. Seems to fit the system
He was really the least exciting 4-star recruit of all time. Maxwell was just one year ahead of him and did really well at the Elite 11 camp. Joe went to the same camp the following year and didn't fare so well.
I do think it is too early to say "he sucks". I think he just saw writing on the wall:
That would leave him with one year as a starter assuming he held off younger guys.
I wish him the best. Kid was classy with the way he handled his exit....contrast that with Mr. Forcier (not flaming.....just pointing out my preference for maturity).
"It is in my best interest that I have decided to leave the Michigan State football program," Boisture said. "I love the university, my teammates, the medical staff and most of all Coach Dantonio. Coach D truly cares about me and all of his players off the field as well as on the field.
"I have the utmost respect for him as a coach and person and wish him and the Spartans nothing but success."
"It is in my best interest that I have decided to leave the Michigan State football program," Boisture said.
What he doesn't say is why it is in his best interest. Likely just the usual suspects: academics, social life, university community, dealing with "the meathead" etc.
Congratulations on coming to your senses Joe Boisture. Enjoy Grand Valley State or the MAC..
Probably a fair assessment... but I think MSU fans were a bit more giddy than you're describing. Back to back years of Maxwell and Boisture had a few of my MSU friends going nuts.
And let's be honest "didn't fare so well" is a very nice way of putting his Elite 11 performance.
That is exactly what i was trying to do by using that choice of words. No reason to rip on the kid. We'll see what happens.
There is a small chance he gives up football. Notice he thanked the medical staff. He has been dealing with back problems.
I always thought MSU was a bit of a weird choice for him anyways considering the depth chart. Didn't really know about the back issues, I suppose he could get a look from some MAC programs?
No rumblings on what the next step for joe is at this point.
All you need to know is that he's out.
He also got benched during his senior season...
You totally ignored the content of the previous post, spare the words "Boisture" and the phrase "greatest in the history of the world" (which was obviously completely serious). Since you seem to be concerned with answering tangential implied questions that actually were never actually implied at all in the first place, I'll go ahead and fill in the blank here.
Yeah, Valenti was all about this guy. He stopped going on so much about him when he dropped out of the Rivals top 250 and finished last at the Elite 11. Regardless, he still makes it a point to say things like, "I'm not concerned with our QB situation -- we have three Elite 11 QBs on staff," despite that one of them is playing at wide receiver, another finished last at the Elite 11, and the third is a backup to a three-star recruit and has not seen significant playing time. At least now that Boisture will be gone, he can no longer make such a statement (as if it has any relevance, anyway).
Your point is well taken re: Nichol and Boisture.
However, bashing Maxwell because he hasn't overtaken Cousins is a stretch. Stars don't matter when you get to college and Cousins is an above average college QB. He will very likely be 1st or 2nd team All Big Ten next year.
Maxwell shined at Elite 11 and all reports are that he is on track to be the heir apparent.
I'm not sure Cousins will be a 1st or 2nd team QB. Parva is back at NW, Pryor is back at OSU, Denard is still at UM, Taylor Martinez is still at Nebraska, Scheelhaase is up and coming and we'll see who takes over at Wisco and Iowa.
I'd bet a good chunk of change that at least two of those people are better than Cousins.
"Stars don't matter when you get to college and Cousins is an above average college QB. He will very likely be 1st or 2nd team All Big Ten next year."
Your first point is correct -- hence the comparison. It's just as absurd for a prominent mouthpiece for the MSU program to repeatedly make a meaningless statement about having three Elite 11 quarterbacks on staff.
As far as Cousins being a shoe-in for 1st or 2nd team all Big Ten, I doubt it. Like WolvinLA said -- Scheelhaase et al are more likely candidates.
I don't think it's a stretch at all to consider Cousins for All Big 10, especially second team. It all depends on what kind of season MSU has. For a point of reference, here are the returning Big 10 QB's ranked by passer rating:
4. D Rob
5. Martinez (or as Dr. Lou would say "Martin-ehz"
8. some Purdue guy
what you meant to say was DANTONIO'D
I think every position we have heard some recruiting news except QB. Anyone know anything regarding targetted QB's? While I think Denard and Devin are studs, it would be nice to have some depth.
As well as former Pitt commit Gary Nova and Clemson commit Cole Stoudt, although he's already enrolled, doh!
Boisture was benched by his high school team (Saline). No thanks
I remember my State friend was so excited about this kid. And I remember making fun of him because he had like 4 touchdowns and 15ish? interceptions right before he was benched a few games into the year
He simply wasn't good. Beat out his senior year? Um, no.
Not the clearest (I'm guessing you're referring to HS?)... but I agree, was never a big fan.
I had to neg you, I'm sorry. For even considering we would want a State reject (no offense to him).
My wife slapped me just for reading this jibberish.
I'd hate to be you when a boob gif is posted!
At what point did he become a wolverine? I think you should read the article.
Ya it is too late to go blue. At least I hope so.
This is getting a little cliche, a la "I see what you did there."
on leaving the green, but who the hell really cares.
What's wrong with another qb. He could turn out to be a star, or he could be lousy. It couldn't hurt to have another guy around could it?
With the depth at QB right now, I bet Michigan takes just about anyone. They need a body.
Don't we have several players on the team that also played quarterback in high school. Could they be a backup plan?
As long as we don't go all "little brother" and gloat over a kid not working out at State. I mean, that would totally be Sparty behavior, amiright?
Kid went to State, didn't work out and he left. Move on, nothing to see. What's next, a Dantonio'd page?
Not to be a jerk, but is this really relevant in any way? Is he planning on applying to UM? Otherwise, this feels very Sparty...
