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.

  • He's really, really good and will help M a lot as a true freshman. Much better talent than Hardaway Jr.


    • Please don't count out Tim Hardaway Jr's career at this point.

      IMO, the kid had a classic sophomore jinx. He's a very talented young player, and will have a much better year next year. Especially with the additional talent coming in around him.

      Oh, .. but wait ... we're losing Trey Burke.


      Get rid of Hardaway Jr. too ....


      • It sure would be nice to root for these guys for more than a year or two. I guess THJ will be the most senior non-gritty-white-guy-gamer we've had since....?....?


        • THJ will leave after his junior year and go undrafted.


          • Let us hope so.

            We sure can't use him here at Michigan.


            • I like Hardaway Jr. quite a bit, if he can improve his ball handling he'll have some success in the NBA. Robinson III is a lot better talent and I say that only as as a compliment to Robinson than a dig at Hardaway Jr.


              • I loved watching GRBIII in the ESPN game, he was the best player on the court. I also really liked Wisconsin's Sam Dekker. Dekker looks to be a tougher Gordan Hayward (race comparison, it really does happen all the time!). Iowa's Mike Gesell (ESPn top 100) looked really good too. Add to that Gary Harris, Kevin Ferrell, McGary and the rest of Indiana's recruits and the Big Ten is going to be loaded for the next few years. Should go on nice little run of being the best regular season conference.

                Be nice if they started converting all these Final 4 apperances into a few Nat'l titles.
                The Lions went 11-5 in 2014


                • Shot selection is an issue I have with Hardaway Jr. too, I hope/expect he'll take less jumpers with a man in his face...

                  Hardaway made quite a bit of those his freshman year but this season they really dragged down his overall 3pt %. When he was setup behind the 3-pt line and was assisted a pass, he was a terrific 3-pt shooter; when he was dripping behind the 3-pt line with a defender in his face and launched a 3-pt attempt, he'd make 1 in maybe 8.


                  • Supposedly, PG Nino Jackson (rivals #46) is now being recruited by Michigan and that Jackson has shown some interest.

                    Also, an unranked PG, Spike Albrecht is visiting A2 tomorrow.

                        • I've read rumors that Nino Jackson is a bit of a character problem. I don't know the facts but I thought that might be worth noting. Coach Beilein seems to have consistently had strong character guys on all of his teams at Michigan (Sims, Novak, Morris, Stu, Burke, Morgan, etc.)


                          • Seems he's not much of a PG, either. Ball dominator. Dunno how that flies given there are bigs and wings that need the ball delivered to them in scoring position next year. But if JB wants him I'd trust his judgment.


                            • Where have you seen that we're recruiting him JD? Haven't seen that nor believe that we would.


                              • There is a pic of Burke's dorm room on mgoblog. It's "packed up" in traditional college fashion. Meaning full of trash bags. Also one of the hockey players tweeted that Burke hasn't been in class the last month.

                                He's gone.
