FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

    We've got some good talent in Burke & Brudidge coming in but can we land some size that has talent? Jordan Morgan can't do it all by himself!

      Wolverine Wednesday: Is Michigan Recruiting The Next Andre the Giant?

      By Big House Bob (Senior Analyst) on March 2, 2011 - Ann Arbor

      Michigan basketball Coach John Beilein was out to watch 7'4" 315-pound Sim Bhullar play basketball on Monday night. Michigan doesn't have a mid-week game this week, so Beilein hit the road t0 do a little recruiting for the 2011-2012 class.

      Bhullar is 17 years old and already has offers from Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and West Virgina of the Big East for the 2012 class. Michigan is looking at him but hasn't offered yet. His parents live in Toronto while Bhullar and his 7'2" brother (age 15) play at Huntington Prep in West Virgina.

      I watched some of his highlights and he is pretty athletic for a huge man with some touch on his jumper. He labors down the court and won't exactly lead any fast breaks. , but I was pretty impressed. Wiith some good coaching and skill development he could turn into a very nice Division I player.

      Here is an article did on him this summer.

      How much would you pay for a summer event (for charity of course) where HokeAMania would wrestle Sim "Andre the Giant" at the Big House? It could beat the "Big Chill" record or they could go old school at put in back at the Silverdome.

      2012 Texas LB Jeremiah Tshimanga (6'3", 226 lbs) might make an unofficial visit to Michigan this weekend. His offer list right now includes; Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Baylor and Arkansas.

      New walk-ons on the spring roster include: QB Steve Wilson (Jr*), RB Jihad Rasheed (Fr*), OL Joey Burzynski (Fr*), TE Mike Kwiatkowski (Jr*) and S Charlie Zeller (So*). * = redshirt
      There were reports that early enrollee Greg Brown might have been getting homesick and headed home in January. He is listed on the roster and his number is 35. I hope he decided to stick it out.
      Michigan has offered 6'9" 310 pound OL Zach Banner from Washington.

        Can we 'sticky' discussions so they stay at the top?

          I'm not sure, WM. Let me do some checking. I may have to direct that question to Deborah.

                Michigan Offers Max Bielfeldt


                • #9
                  Max Bielfeldt is taking his official visit to Michigan this week. We could use another big man.

                  He seems like a slightly more versatile but maybe not as athletic Jordan Morgan. Having another 6'8" 240 guy out there certainly wouldn't hurt.


                  • #10
                    Reading his comments over at Rivals, I think we have a good chance of signing him.


                    • #11
                      Thing that scares me is there's a lot of smoke saying he's closer to 6-7. I've not seen any film on him, but I don't like him playing C at that size. I hope he's got some skills to play the 4. Sounds like he can hit the 3 at least.


                      • #12
                        A lot of what I have read though have Michigan recruiting him as a 5

                          Here's a decent highlight video of him:

                            I'd take him and trust JB, but he's not a 4 in this offense.

                              Whoa. He set a pick at around 1:38 that Bo Schembechler would be proud of ...
