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.

    No, one of Illinois top recruits from a few years ago is a knucklehead and might not be back with the team, hence the schollie.

        Damn, I was really hoping that we could get him after I heard Ill didn't have a scholarship to offer him....maybe he will want to join the "killah b's" as someone above came up with (which is awesome lol).

        I hope that Illinois telling him he couldn't get a scholarship affected how he felt about them and realized how good M could be with him

          The main reasons I can think of Bielfeldt going to Illinois over Michigan are his family ties and maybe staying closer to home.

          If you are looking at which of the two teams is on the rise, which coach has security and which team might fit his style of play then he should be heading to A2.

            Trey Burke was named Ohio's Mr. Basketball. Here are highlights from his Senior year:

              Bielfeldt is to announce today at 4:30pm.


              • #37
                Well I'm crossing my fingers for him to pick us

                  I don't think MB is Illini,, WM, unless you've heard something really recent.

                    Believe he announces any minute, rivals think he's M.

                      Not gonna get excited either way. Nice to have another big, maybe nicer to bank the scholarship and go after someone better next year.

                            Nice to have depth in the front court. We have a TON in the back court.

                            Who knows, maybe Larry Nance Jr. will still come as a preferred walk-on? I'm sure his dad still has money so maybe a scholarship isn't so important?


                            • #44
                              It'd be great to have Nance Jr., but this may end up being a "if you snooze, you lose" situation for him. I think you're right about his dad having the dough to send him to Michigan as a preferred walk on. He could do that for a year, then wait for a scholly.

                                Can kids of former NBA ballers go anywhere but Michigan?
