Justin Boren Leaves the Michigan Wolverines


From Justin Boren's statement to the press:

"I regret leaving behind my friends and teammates, but I need to stand up for what I know is right. I wore the winged helmet with pride, whether we won or lost, whether things were going well or times were tough.

"Michigan football was a family, built on mutual respect and support for each other from Coach Carr on down. We knew it took the entire family, a team effort, and we all worked together. I have great trouble accepting that those family values have eroded in just a few months. That same helmet, that I was raised on and proudly claimed for the last two years, now brings a completely different emotion to me, one that interferes with practicing and playing my best and mentally preparing for what is required

"That I am unable to perform under these circumstances at the level I expect of myself, and my teammates and Michigan fans deserve, is why I have made the decision to leave. To those of you outside the program, the loyal Michigan fans and alumni, I know you will have trouble understanding, but I do want to thank you for your years of support. I wish my teammates the best and will always be proud to have been a part of Michigan football over the past two years."


This is only what was released to the press. Justin also included a long list of other unconscionable changes in the program since Carr's departure, which included:

- Cancellation of nap time.
- No longer being able to watch "16 Candles" in the film room.
- Coaches now screaming instructions rather than saying "Whosagoodboy? Yousagoodboy!"
- Weight training.
- Long runs no longer rewarded with steak sandwich.
- Coach now killing puppies rather than dirty kittens.
- Hard work now required rather than encouraged.

 If he's so concerned about family values, why is he leaving his family at U of M?
