The announcement this week that offensive lineman Justin Boren was transferring from Michigan to Ohio State came as no surprise. It had been expected from the moment Boren left the Wolverines in a huff, saying that the "family values" he had grown accustomed to while playing for the Wolverines had "eroded in just a few months" under Rich Rodriguez.
Now comes word that Boren might have had help in his transfer from former Wolverine coach Lloyd Carr.
Writes Rob Oller of the Columbus Dispatch: "Maybe they should take a cue from previous Michigan coach Lloyd Carr, who according to a source close to the situation worked behind the scenes to help 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."
