"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Mallet bugs me a lot but he was actually positive about RR and just said he did it for himself. Now Boren looks like he left based upon the effort the different scheme would have required. The NFL took note no doubt
I think it was a combination of unwillingness to meet Barwis' standards and his brother wasn't offered by RR.
Justin better get the plow business goin. He'll have two brothers joining the business soon.
A lot of great college players don't get drafted.
Aren't self focused pricks who burn bridges for headlines and tLULz, all the while regressing while former management converts a perhaps less athletically gifted player into draft material.
Is Schilling the guy you're referring to as less athletically gifted? Remember - Schilling was the 5 star, while Boren was a 4 star. A high 4 star I believe, but Schilling was the higher rated prospect.
EDIT: Rivals had Schilling as the #26 overall player nationally, while Boren was #64.
DOUBLE EDIT: That made Schilling the second highest rated recruit in that class, behind BG. Carlos Brown was #3 and Mouton was #4. For those who doubt the recruiting rankings, that's pretty dead on.
Sorry for hitting Moderate. Actually meant to mark Insightful.
I don't like or respect Boren. But a three year starter for OSU is a great college player, like it it not. But hopefully no NFL career as a free agent
Sorry to disagree, but most of the starters for that school haven't been "great". Given the level of talent they recruit, the o-lines of the last few years have fallen far shor tof expectations.
After sitting out a year Boren was a two year starter.
He's part of the rebel alliance and a traitor. Take him away.
He's acting like Boren is some heinous monster for leaving us, trashing Rich Rod, going to OSU, whatever, plus he's acting like we're vindicated because Boren wasn't drafted, even though his team has kicked our ass while he was there. Gloating over Boren would be immature if it wasn't so asinine. I just wanted to use that line.
I'd like to think they are the Galactic Empire and we're the Rebel Alliance, especially in light of all the evil doings taking place right now in Courasant, err Columbus.
SI has Martell Web rated higher than Boren. FU boren. so glad he did not get drafted. SI says "Boren looked like a top center prospect as a sophomore with Michigan then showed signs of potential at guard after transferring to Ohio State. He comes off a very disappointing senior campaign and is likely to fall out of the draft."
At least he already has a job lined up in the mean time plowing snow and mowing lawns for the old man.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer person. And by "nicer" I mean "Douchebaggier."
to overcome the doubts his actions caused. Why bother when you can pick somebody else
You question THIS GUY's work ethic?
Justin Boren had a brief cameo on Invader Zim
Karma is a bitch, isn't it, Boren? Fuck that lazy, whiny fatass.
I don't know who is busy negging your business but Karma is a bitch. I don't see the redundancy in that at all. The kid complained bitterly while throwing both RichRod and the program under the bus. Family values gets you not drafted, asshat. Suck on that Mike Boren.
I will see you at the tollbooth. You know which one.
has been hired as a PR man for Krispy Kream donuts.
Boren thought the saying was "Those who EAT will be champions"
Lies the fact that we really could have used this guy back in 2008 and 2009.
Leaving your team at its low-point, when it needs you most, and for its archrival...while throwing haymakers at the new coach as you close the door...wow.
I'm not trying to be the best at exercising.
Who is this Boren person and what concern is he to the world?
What I don't understand is when he was here he seemed to have some promise as a good player, and got playing time as a freshman(not sure if he redshirted, I assume he did because OL). He also seemed to get praise from practice at OSU while he was forced to sit out due to transfering. So does he have the abilities to be good in college but not in the NFL, did his character lower his draft status, or does OSU just do a terrible job coaching their OL?
I recall a few really good Oline classes for OSU and there seems to be very little NFL calliber talent from those groups 5 years later.
NFL offensive lines are generally taller than in the NCAA and have to demonstrate much more versatile skillsets.
Boren was a solid, if unspectacular guard for OSU.
He's shorter than average for an NFL offensive lineman.
He apparently has some trouble in pass protection against athletic defensive linemen.
And, here's my favorite part:
"Plays angry on the field but his mental makeup is in question after a transfer from Michigan."
That is indeed good reason for questioning someone's mental makeup.
He played as a true Freshman. Then he started all 13 games in 2007. His red shirt year was after he transferred.
Maybe Mr. Plow will make an NFL team as a free agent. As others have noted, starting on the OSU O-line (excepting, perhaps, that Florida game) for three years isn't too shabby.
What I like best about this result, though, is that we might finally be done hearing/reading "Justin Boren, who transferred from Michigan after Rich Rodriguez was hired as coach BLAH BLAH BLAH ..."
Everyone knows that the NFL has no family values.
about players that play for Michigan
I think it's safe to say Boren is NOT a Michigan Man.
New cardio program at TSIO: run around the horseshoe ten times or run around Justin Boren once.
It's a shame a good Michigan Man's name like Boren (Mike) had to be tarnished by this turd son of his.
It's not like Mike Boren was such a good Michigan Man through all of this either. And now he's sending his last son to OSU even though Rodriguez (his supposed problem with his alma mater) is gone.
he'd have ex-communicated Mike Boren for spawning 3 Buckeye's. That, and letting his fat, worthless son leave here in the classless manner he did. I doubt Mike Boren would be welcomed with open arms at any player reunions.
I don't care about Boren... he transferred years ago. it's done
Boren will make it in the NFL. Their parking lots need to be plowed too.
Knowing Boren while he was there...this is deserved. And funny. And right.
Schillig failed the eyde test witha finaly answer of get in my belly!
Aka fat bastard....
He said I'll be your hucklberry for a tattoo
and I mean well done in classic manner of that 72oz steak you just ordered, you know with the jumbo baked potato and fixins, the gigantic salad with a whole tomato and a gallon of ranch dressing. And not to forget the 1/2 loaf of bread that goes with it. Mmmmmmmmmm. That tastes good, its called KARMA bitch and you just sat in a steeeeeemmmmmmmiiiinnnnggggggg pile of it.
disclaimer: ranch dressing is the best food topper in the world!
