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.

  • DR should have been coached by Meyer, not RR and certainly not Hoke.

    • I certainly give JH credit for joining Jim Fassel in the the "We lost to the Ravens in the Super Bowl" Club. Elite company.

      And I certainly understand your belief that JH will not equal UFM's success. That is, aside from your flaying of Hoke, the most reasonable conclusion you've offered, OP.

      In the meantime, OP, I will have to content myself with UFM. 142-26, 38-3 at Ohio State, 3 national titles at 2 different schools plus an undefeated season at Utah and, of course, 3-0 in THE GAME. I realize the HARBAUGH SEA CHANGE is upon us, but at least Ohio State should manage to hold on to 2nd in the Big Ten East.

      • 11-2 is more than a typical season even under a great coach.

          • Do your little turn, sure. Keep on prancing and mincing. You've nothing to be ashamed of.

              Good god. This is a load to contemplate.

              • I think UFM would have used DR as an H-back. And he would have been freaking devastating. A faster, shiftier Jalin Marshall? Yes, please. Now THAT's a horizontal constraint!

                        The same people who four years ago said that Michigan would probably have a terrible defense in Hoke's first year because even if they got better coaching they had no talent. Then we saw the defense improve by 100 yards per game (although they were still crap in some games) and guys who were thought to be I-AA talent (e.g. Floyd) ended up becoming solid starters. Mgo has always had a massive blind spot when it comes to identifying poor coaching, instead clinging to excuse after excuse until the excuses finally run out.

                        Poor coaching masks talent. So does a shitty strength and conditioning program. We're loaded with 4* and 5* guys who had offers from other major programs. The only exception to that rule is probably WR but we have more talent there than 10 of the teams on this year's schedule. They can't all have been overrated guys who are poor athletes.

                          Yes, exactly.

                            • Hanni:

                              I was of the mind that M has a ton of untapped potential. I'm less bullish on their talent not, though no where close to where Mgo is.

                              I guess the way the one guy put it is: "How many NFL Draft Picks do you see on the M roster?" I looked at Brian's entry on the 27 guys or something that are most likely to start, and I don't see all that many. And I still see a glaring hole at QB.

                              As you noted, WR is not good. I also think they are lacking up front, especially in terms of rush guys.
