Buckeye buster:'that

A Columbus, Ohio native attending the
University of Michigan is nothing short
of a mortal sin. It is enough to make
Woody Hayes start punching himself.,
Supposedly, there is no excusable
reason for someone from the Ohio
capital to enroll at "that school up Nor-
th." Linebacker Mike Boren had
a reason- revenge.,,
"Ohio State didn't recruit me," said
the 6-2, 217-pound sophomore. "I atten-
ded East Moor High where Archie Grif-
fin came from: And after my junior
year, I was one of Ohio State's top
prospects. They wanted me to come in
and sprintfor'them. I was at 230 and out
of shape. I ran the 40 in five seconds flat
and they said good-bye."

THE BUCKEYES' loss was the
Wolverines' gain as Boren leads the
team in tackles with 47 and assists with
"I was a born and raised Buckeye,''
Boren added. "I grew up hating
Michigan and I loved nothing more than
watching Ohio State beat Michigan. I
used to go to all of the games until they
dropped interest in me.
"Now that I'mhere at Michigan, I
love it here. Michigan has a great
athletic and academic program and
I'm pleased to be here. It's great. I
loved it especially when we went down
to Columbus last year and beat them."
LAST YEAR, Boren rem;ined in
shadow of defensive stalwart Andy
Cannavino. Observing Cannavino's
dominating style of play served as a

Boren realizes the importance of

again this year. Michigan has always
been a team that reaches its peak late
in -the season. We' have a tough
schedule leading up to that final game,
but I'm sure we'll do it."
Boren cannot help but to think about
"that final game" because he loves
beating up on Buckeyes.
