How to NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW Blogs on IP Boards?

Have a forum using a Invision Boards software, I know, long story...

Anyhow, I am having trouble finding a way or plugin that would enable me to NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW any of the blogs...

I would hate to just kill the blog section as there are many users keeping posts on topic, it's always the few that mess everything up...

Any links to plugins that have advanced SEO or Meta Tag modification?

At the very least, anyone know what template I need to modify to NOINDEX,NOFOLLOW the entire blog area? Again, I would hate to do this, but if I have no other choice...

:(
