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.

    It's not +7. Either way.
    538 has it figured in. It's the OH Predicitive Insights poll on this list. Slightly older poll than several others.

    • It's a more recent version of the same poll. Same numbers, though.
      Dan Patrick: What was your reaction to [Urban Meyer being hired]?
      Brady Hoke: You know.....not....good.

        • Alt Righters Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman were going to have a press conference today with a woman who claims Robert Mueller assaulted her.

          They still intend to hold the presser. but the woman now fears for her life and will not attend. her identity is being protected for her own safety.

          Quality work, boys.

            The dates aren't the same but there's no way other than some sort of bombshell scandal that a race is legitimately shifting by 11 points in the course of a few days. The spread between polling outfits on most of these races is greater than the individual MoE being reported with each one of them. I think that the MoE number has some statistical assumptions built into it that fail to account for all kinds of factors, like whether one demographic is more likely to be sampled by any given polling technique.

            • You should have those errors from time to time if you are polling correctly. If you don't have any outlier polls, some pollsters are holding back funky results, then its herding. None of those pollsters have a clue what the turnout model will be. Because Donald is the president, everything is effing all politics all the time and normally sleepy midterms are anything but sleepy. Margin of error is not BS, it is just a statistical fact of the poll.

              The simple fact is house race and senate races are highly suspect. Take any of these models with a grain of salt, 538 is running their model and some of the other sites are doing something similar but this is the 1st draft for most of those models.

                I wouldn't say that. For that matter, I wouldn't write off the possibility that it is -7 and that Cruz is going to lose his seat in Tejas. It's extremely unpredictable but FWIW Realclearpolitics has the no tossups Senate race at 52-48 in favor of the Rs (with the Ds winning a handful of red states which to me would be a pretty big loss for the Rs) and the Ds with about a six seat margin in the House (but enough tossups to form a solid majority for either party if they all break a certain way.

                • The +7 for McSally is a robo-poll. 538 gives it a C+ rating as a pollster, it doesn't mean its not right but live polls are always considered better.

                  • And the pollster rating for Predictive Insights is based off a whopping two polls to establish the baseline. Rasmussen has earned their C+ grade with 711 polls to analyze.
