ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michigan's post-game celebration Saturday, after ending seven years of frustration against Ohio State, wasn't appreciated by at least one of the Buckeyes. As time ran out in the 40-34 thrilling victory, Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson took the ball and tossed it into the air. Robinson and some of his teammates then fell to the Michigan Stadium field on their backs, just as some of the Buckeyes were coming across the field to meet them. Ohio State 's Zach Boren, a junior running back, thought it was a classless move under the circumstances. "I lost so much respect for Michigan after they won n threw the ball in the air acting like it was a grenade," Boren wrote in a message he posted on Twitter. "This is a great rivalry and to take it to that level of disrespect is just so uncalled for. Act like you have won before n treat this rivalry like it should be treated." Boren is the younger brother of former Buckeye Justin Boren, who transferred from Michigan to Ohio State a few years ago and was critical of the Wolverines' previous coaching staff. Michigan center David Molk said the controversial celebration, in which the players act as if "a bomb explodes," had become a familiar way for the Wolverines to end practice every Friday. This time, it was done right in front of the opponent and interpreted as a way of showing up the Buckeyes.
