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.

    Yeah, that was a nice pick.

    He could be one of those guys that Gene Keady always used to get, like Steve Scheffler.

    I'd like to see him set a few of those on Craft for Tattoo U.

      Somewhat of a Bielfeldt update:
      There is a guard transferring from Bradley to Illinois so it looks like they are giving up the scholarship they had offered to Max. He could still go there as a preferred walk-on, if that's his dream school but I have to think this puts us in the lead, if we weren't already there.

        I've seen stranger things happen. To me as a parent, its a no-brainer. Free education for the kid, or pay for it?

        I'd like to have him.

          Maybe he could go to OhNo where he could get paid and not get an education.

              I didn't see him shoot much except layups. Not even sure that the jump shot on the fade-out went in. Would be nice to have a big body though.

              I wonder where that Pittsnagel kid is now? There was a big man that could shoot!

                I'm kind of curious to see if any recruits that had committed to schools that have let their coach go (Oklahoma, Arkansas, NC State & maybe Tennessee) are going to look elsewhere. Arkansas has 3 players in ESPN's top 60, including a 6'10" PF at #57. That guy's name is Hunter Mickelson. NC State has a 7 foot center at #83 named Joseph Uchebo.

                Is there any chance of making a late push with these guys? Getting Bielfeldt would still probably be a good addition but these guys might have more impact.

                    Lots of '11 commits have LOI's signed, can they get out of them when coaches are let go?

                        Bielfeldt led Notre Dame to a 28-1 record, was named to the Class 3A All-State First Team and averaged 23 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks per game.

                          Seems to be some mixed feelings on this one. Illinois sounds like they're gonna have a schollie now. If Michigan overcomes that, pretty impressive.

                              Bielfeldt will have to overcome his granddaddy's influence. It seems that grandpappy is a major contributor to the University of Illinois. That's probably why Illinois magically found a scholly for him.

                              It'd be kind of neat to get the three of them. Bielfeldt, Brundidge and Burke. The "killer bees" ...
