Zach Boren Claims Not Even His Brother Knows Who's Starting at Quarterback for Ohio State

Former Ohio State FB/LB Zach Boren, who once got away with killing a Michigan Man in broad daylight in front of 107,000 people, appeared on Newsradio 610 WTVN Wednesday morning.

Boren stands within one cut of making the final Tennessee Titans roster, and he refused to take a potshot at his new QB, Marcus Mariota, over the national title game and went out of his way to sing the Hawaiian's praises.

His advice to Braxton Miller regarding a position switch (which he'd know a thing or two about) is to "live in the moment." He also conceded that revenge will play a role in Ohio State's motivation.

Eventually, however, the $10,000,000 question was breached. Boren joked that he knew this question was coming before lauding both candidates (Cardale's physicality vs. Barrett's cerebralness). 

He went as far as to say not even his little brother, Jacoby — a senior captain who will be snapping the balls in a hostile environment like a liquored up Lane Stadium — knows who will be starting Monday night.

"I don't know how Coach Meyer is going to [decide]. To be honest, I texted my little brother and he's the one who's going to be snapping to them, and I asked him what's going to happen and he doesn't even know, so if he doesn't even know, I don't know if anyone knows right now." 

It could be unlikely Boren would spill the beans on radio, but he wouldn't need to summon the authority of Jacoby to keep his cards close to the vest.
