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.

                      • Whoa, Cal beat USC for the first time in over a decade.

                        USC’s last 4 recruiting classes (from 2015-2018) are ranked #2, #10, #4, #4. Yet they are a 5-5 hot mess. Way to develop your players, Clay Helton.
                        Yes, freshman QBs are playing for USC. Clemson isn’t doing too bad with a true freshman QB.

                          • All of the #1-6 CFP contenders notched wins yesterday.

                            #1 Alabama, relying on defense, shut out #18 Mississippi State 24/0 for thier second straight shut out. We can continue to disregard AA's ridiculous sandbagging about youth and injuries on the D. Tua did not play the 4th quarter and wasn't needed. He did take a couple of low hits according to Saban but "not from the back where his problem is." That's a Posterior Cruciate Ligamnet issue if it is anything - nothing a brace can't protect but does limit Tua's mobility ala. McSorely.

                            #2 Clemson had a solid win against #17 BC who lost their starting QB early in the first quarter. It was a nothing burger offense that could manage just 7 points after that although BC's defense held Clemson to 27 points. Clemson relied on Trevor Lawrence's arm (29/49/1TD - 295) throwing to 9 different targets for the win. Clemson's DL is impressive and the defense logged 4 sacks - one of which knocked BC's starting QB out.

                            #3 ND without Ian Book beat a terrible FSU team 42/13. Winbush was Winbush and although Kelly praised the senior, there's no question he'd rather have Book back and so it will be next week v. Syracuse.

                            #4 UGA beat a shitty #24 Auburn team in Athens, 27-10. There was nothing inspiring about this win - workman like, I suppose. UGA is NOT going to beat Alabama who will probably limit UGA's RB DiAndre Swift (17/186/10.9) and put enough pressure on Jake Fromm (13/20/193/2TDs/1INT) to limit his ability to get UGA into the endzone.

                            #6 OU escaped with a win v. Okie State in Norman when Taylor Cornelius (34/53/3TDs - 501 yards) threw incomplete on a 2 point conversion attempt that would have won the game. The throw that was makeable hit the ground. There was over 1200 yards of offense in this game. I don't think OU is, or should be, a threat to grab one of the 4 CFP spots and will face #9 WVU to finish the season. The Big12 does not have a CCG.

                            With Tua a bit gimpy, although he could play with one leg and Bama would still win, the most balanced contenders for the CFPs are Clemson and maybe Michigan or ND - both a distant 2nd to Clemson. The strength of these three teams is their defenses. UGA is not going to win the SEC so, bye-bye. ND could lose to The Orangemen in Yankee Stadium next week but, again ND's defense is championship level legit. I don't see ND losing. I also jdon't see the committee putting #6 OU, if it beats WVU and that one is a toss-up, IMO, in ahead of Michigan assuming that M beats both IU and osu the next two weeks.

                            ND or UGA losses, which are the two most likely contenders to lose, just helps M. Fans talk like they'd like M to face Clemson. That would be a battle of 2 QBs facing very good defenses. I don't think it makes any difference who M plays. The current spreads (UAT by 14 and Clemson by 7 over M) are probably about right.

                            • 1. Tua's injury is a lateral meniscus and a gastroc tendon. Now a deep bruised quad. He was so injured last night Saban said he could not have returned.

                              2. This is game 10. While they were young, after 10 games of coaching and PT, they aren't anymore.

                              • Hmmmm ...... the meniscus thing is probably the less serious one. A gastroc tendon injury can be a bitch. In my distant youth, I had a soleus muscle tear right where it's body inserts into a short tendon and then joins the gastroc tendon. I got it from over-training (repeated foot flexion/extension running on hard surfaces - I was doing interval sprints on a track). It never completely healed and ended competitive running for me, I was in my late 30s. It would be fine for the first 20 minutes of running briskly then flair up. Very painful and this after warming up, slow pacing and then competing. I can see how this would be a problem for Tua and how he feels fine in warm-ups but can hardly stand on it as the game goes on.
