Default Boren disliked Rodriguez, transferring to Columbus

http://msn.foxsports.com/cfb/story/8...ng-to-Columbus

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry is about to get even more interesting, now that former Wolverines player Justin Boren has decided to join the Buckeyes.

Ohio State coach Jim Tressel says Boren plans to put on the scarlet and gray after sitting out the 2008 season as required by NCAA transfer rules.

The sophomore offensive lineman left the Michigan program last month, saying its "family values have eroded" under new coach Rich Rodriguez.

In a statement released through Tressel, Boren says he's looking forward to helping the Buckeyes continue their excellence. Boren went to high school in the Columbus suburb of Pickerington.

Boren would have been the most experienced of Michigan's returning linemen. He started 14 games and played in 18 during his career. His father, Mike, played linebacker at Michigan.

Mike Boren had said his son had been contacted by about 50 schools after announcing he was leaving Michigan.

I can't blame the kid. Maybe he woke up one day and he wanted to win conference championships and have a chance at winning national titles. Maybe he saw the mass defections of draft worthy juniors from Michigan the day after Hillbilly was named head coach. Maybe he just got tired of being second best.

Whatever the reason, the reaction of Michigan fans tells the real story.

Word out of Colubus is that Boren won't be on scholarship and that his Michigan graduate Father will be paying his tuition at Ohio State.

Talk about a kick in the sack.

Better to play to pay for Ohio State than to play for Michigan.

Oh man...when it rains it pours...

"According to a source close to the situation, previous Michigan coach Lloyd Carr worked behind the scenes to help offensive lineman Justin Boren obtain his scholarship release from Michigan. Carr even assured Boren that Ohio State is the closest thing to Michigan that he would find and that there are "good people" in Columbus."

Carr has responded calling it a "lie"

But still, rumors of your old coach, helping your biggest Rival get players off your team...not good.
