Justin Boren is the man. He left Michigan, ripped Rich Rodriguez and then had the gonads to transfer to Ohio State?

I love it.

And that's not sarcasm. I sincerely love it. For one thing, I don't love R-Rod. Not after the way he left West Virginia, shredding documents and relationships along the way, and then arrived at Michigan and in one month on the recruiting trail was shadier than Lloyd Carr had been in decades.

So Boren calls R-Rod what he is -- a bad guy -- and then leaves. And then transfers to Michigan's biggest rival. Michigan fans are calling Boren all sorts of emasculatory names, but let's be serious: To leave Michigan as he did, and then to show up at Ohio State, shows titanic testicles.

I'm neither a buckeye fan nor a michigan fan. But I do believe that if a player did the same to tressel and went to Michigan that the Michigan fans would be getting a laugh as well and the shoe would be on the other foot.  Maybe ever Doyel would praise him for his large "NADS".  I'm an OU fan and as much as I don't favor the bitter athlete (i.e. Malcolm Kelly in this years combine), I would laugh if a player bashed Mike Gundy (Ok St coach) or Mack Brown and transferred to OU, HA!!

But I'll admit, it seems classless and maybe he's not a player that Ohio St would want after a stunt like that honestly.  I mean, their a prideful, full of great tradition program as well.  Why take this up, ya know.

Man, you m*ch*gan fans sure are bitter these days...  First you try to act like your new "coach" (if you can call him that) didn't shred WVU's papers even though his assisstants SAW HIM do it, then you rip on your best offensive lineman who transfers because he doesn't like playing for a guy with no morals...  I can only imagine what is coming next, but hopefully you guys can channel your aggression into something more constructive in the future...

P.S.  Good luck with your players (note I said "players" and not "team") somehow beating tOSU this year...  The day a bunch of 140 lb. twigs "puts tOSU in its place" is the day that I wear a UM shirt proudly...  I will never say never, because we all know that predicting the future is downright stupid, but if you honestly believe that m*ch*gan is going to beat tOSU THIS year, then you are delusional...

I'm going to assume because it seems to me that you did.  Either that or I'm think you talked personally with Rich Rodriguez about him shredding the documents?  They proved everything in court right?  He told you that he personally picked up those things and threw them in the shredder?  I doubt it cause you're garbage just a waste of breathe for anyone to talk to you.  How do you know the reason that Boren left?  Did you ask him too?  maybe he did cause he's garbage and you're garbage and pieces of garbage do stick together most of the time.  Doyell go ahead and love on Ohio St.  Michigan's gonna put them in their place this year!

You Wolverine homers crack me up. . .the reason it's so great is that fans of BOTH teams are the very definition of myopic.  Don't worry - if the situation were reversed, a like-minded Columbus native would have reacted exactly the same way you did.  Clearly, this kid wasn't getting enough mindless adoration in Ann Arbor, so he headed for somewhere else with fans dying to live by his every word or act.

A Homer and a Hypocrite?

I don't know Doyel personally, but this post told me all that I need to know about him.  I realize that he is an Ohio guy, but this is ridiculous.  You dislike RR because he bailed on his old team and allegedly shredded (his personal) documents, but then your new favorite player is a guy who bailed on his team and then took cheapshots through the media and shredded his former coach?  One is bad because it benefits Michigan at the expense of another school, but the other is good because it benefits the almighty Buckeyes at the expense of Michigan?

Transferring to the school that is on a winning streak against your team and is expected to play for the NC is not gutsy.  Sticking with your commitment to a school in transition would have been gutsy.  He had a chance to be a leader on a young Michigan team, but bailed on his teammates because he didn't want to work for it.  Addition by subtraction, I say.  Don't let the door hit you in the butt.  We will stick with the guys who want to be Wolverines.  Anybody who would not just transfer, but transfer to OSU, was never a Wolverine to begin with.

More recruiting complaints?  You should share a bowl of oatmeal with Wilford Brimley over at Purdue.  Why is it that people like you blame RR for doing exactly what everybody else, including Tiller and Tressel do?  RR had short timeline to recruit and made it known that there were opportunities to play at Michigan.  The receiver that Tiller was whining about indicated that he would have preferred to go to Michigan all along, but he was not on Lloyd's radar.  So RR is a bad guy for letting the kid play for the team that he wanted all along?  Tiller went on to take a recruit from Ball State.  That is OK because it is not a Big Ten school?  Just today Tressel received a verbal from someone that was an Illinois verbal.  Where is the venom against Tressel?

All the garbage about "family values" is just code for being upset that his little bro' didn't get offered by Michigan.  Take some Midol, Justine, and get over it.  I am not sure if bailing on your team and throwing them under the bus on your way out is really the "family values" way to handle the situation.  Also, if RR is such a bad guy, then why have a number of the players that he supposedly bailed on come to his defense?  They don't begrudge him for looking to escape an uncomfotable work environment and to upgrade his job.  It is only hack bloggers and the WVU "Fatal Attraction" fans that still harbor resentment against RR.

Move on and take Boren with you. . .

Headline Columbus:  "Lineman not suited for spread offense headed for limited playing time, blames new Coach for his own shortcomings in completely disgraceful manner"

You do NOT leave town and bash your former team.  No matter what.  Everyone on this site was applauding Shaun Alexander's graceful exit from Seattle and is now applauding this jerk?  Doyel you are now my LEAST favorite columnist, and make yourself a jerk by association.  Maybe if you hurry you can catch the OSU bandwagon.  Don't worry if they don't have room for your "journalistic" credibility, you just lost that anyway.

Ok this guy is a pansy he left because of the tempo of the offense.  His fat rear end couldn't handle the no-huddle and the uptempo so he left to go to OSU it doesn't show testicles it shows classlessness!

What this guy did took a lot of guts.  If he can play, hopefully he'll make an impact in a year.  If not, at least he stood up for what he believed in.  Assuming his story is correct at least.

No idea if he was "worked too hard," but I find that hard to believe.  Probably something more going on here, though who knows.

Never was a big fan of R.Rod, and I've been really disappointed with college coaches the last couple seasons.  I don't know enough to call him names, but hopefully things work out how they should for both this kid and R.Rod.
