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.

    I'm torn. It is more of a grind but when I see every other league do it differently, it's swaying my opinion. The unbalanced schedule isn't fair either. Only one team gets to cut down nets in the conference.

    Of course, winning the damn thing two years in a row (and seeing how much it means to the players) also plays a part.

      • Heh. Well, the B10 SHOULD have had a team reach the Elite 8 in 1986, but your boy Skiles got screwjobbed big time by the Kansas City timekeepers against, unsurprisingly, Kansas.

        I always liked Skiles. But, meh -- that wasn't a particularly good B10. I mean, Alford got Cleveland State'd.

            • Respect due to soccer. You give up one thing to get another with Reg season vs playoffs, but relegation is key. Relegation is awesome.

              Oddly, European sports are pure capitalism; over here it's a socialist model.

              • Relegation is the only good thing about soccer.

                • Say what you will, but they don't have a meaningless regular-season slog. They also don't have Game 7s. Those two things cancel each other out, probably. Although if basketball could get its act together and play 20 less games, or even 10 or 15, that'd be great.

                  • Soccer gets the best of both worlds, IMO. A complete round robin home and home to determine the league champion and a tournament to determine the Cup champion. The FA Cup final is more watched than the Super Bowl (I think), and they also have their weekend round of games that provides some huge upsets. And relegation.

                    For hoops I’d definitely use the Scottish model. Maybe break it into East and West. 12 game round robin. Top 2 from each advance to top group to play round robin. 18 total league games. With other lower groups formed.

                    • Wow. For the first time in recorded history someone has either said, typed or thought the words ``I'd definitely use the Scottish model'' for something other than brawling.

                            Webber was a lousy shooter, though. Averaged about 50% on FTs, and hit less than 1 3-pointer per game as a sophomore.

                              He only took 2.2 3-point shots a game, so making less than one isn't a surprise. 34% is still decent for a 6'9" 245 lb. guy in that era. He was better from 3 than Jalen and Ray that year...though Ray seemingly made 1 every other game with his toes just over the line.

                                I checked in with a couple of ESPN guys today as where Iggy would've been ranked if they'd put him on there.
