I have to admit, when Boren was moved to LB, I was a bit disgusted at the depth/talent that we have at a position that has been a major strength for our team for...well, as long as I can remember. However, the more I watch this guy, I'm beginning to see that this was the staff's way for them to get the best 11 on the field because Boren would never have been properly utilized on offense. He is a lead blocker, not a ball carrier. Our backup LB are young and the learning curve in college ball is steep (I assume, as I've never played a snap of college FB outside of intramurals), which doesn't make me feel quite as bad for our LB corp (cuz Ryan DAMN Shazier is a future Butkus winner, you heard it here, folks!). The million dollar question, does the Boren move speak to the lack of talent at MLB or is it just a testament to Zach's football IQ? I believe it is a matter of his football IQ and his work effort over the last four years. He deserves to be on the field more than he was and I think it was a good move by the staff by getting him on the field. Amazing that he can step right in and play a position that he hadn't played since his days at Pickerington, I don't care if he is taking the job away from 2 year guys on D or not. His IQ is impressive and his hard-nosed play are what is getting him on the field, on the opposite side that he's occupied during his entire tenure in Columbus. Way to be a team player, Mr. Boren! Thoughts fellow dubsters? Are you impressed by him or upset that we have no one else capable of competently playing at Mike?
