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.

          Hope not. I am not a psu fan. Long history of dislike on my part.

            The Husker softball team continues to dominate as they just shut out No. 10 Hawaii, 3-0, in a California Classic which is featuring some of the best teams in the country. Nebraska's only loss this year came in the first three games of the season as they lost to No. 1 Arizona. But they have beaten three ranked teams since, climbed to No. 18 before this game and if they continue to show well in this tournament, they might jet right to the top 10.

                I've been looking forward to having the Huskers in the Big Ten ever since it was first announced. Its an excellent addition, and I think the Huskers will fit better in the Big Ten than they did in the Big 12.

                  Husker updates at the combine...


                  Prince ran a 4.37 and 4.44. Should help silence the speed questions. Prince is physical and only had one bad game is entire college career against OSU.. and he slipped on one play and the other his over the top coverage was late/didn't get there. I still think he's a corner
                  Gomes ran a 4.48 and a 4.47. IMO, Gomes will play in the NFL. He makes plays and can blitz. At UNL he gave Bo's defense great versitility and I think he can do the same in the NFL. Not a natural Corner or Safety, but great in the nickel or dime.
                  Hagg ran a 4.68 and a 4.64. Great college safety, solid fundamentals, tackles well and was very good at short route coverage. Not sure he's going to be an NFL player. He's probably a tweener between SS and OLB. In the right defense, he could be successful. He is a smart guy.

                    on the OL..

                    both huskers did poorly.

                    Henery - Second slowest 40, dead last broad jump and only did something like 21 reps in the bench
                    williams - 40 of 5.26, 2nd worst broad jump


                    guess this explains UNL's inside running game problems. I know there is more to football than drills, but...

                    to be fair, Williams has battled knee and hip problems. I am surprised he went to the combine.

                      ESPN nor ESPN Insider made any mention of Helu

                      CNNSI had him on a small list of risers from today's combine:

                      Roy Helu/RB/Nebraska: Helu's stock has been rising since his solid campaign of 2010. He was able to keep the momentum going on Sunday, running faster than expected. Helu's 40s ranged in the low-4.4s and the ex-Cornhusker also looked terrific in drills.
