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.

  • SMU's AD was personally signing checks and delivering them to players, haha. That's how arrogant and confident they were that nothing serious could ever happen to them.

        • I want to know more about what led to this. Apparently a damning report is due out today. With that said, about half of these reports and exposure pieces end up being a total bust.

              From what I heard on Sirius/XM today the Board of Regents at Baylor received the Peppers report (that was looking into the sexual assaults and other items) today and met to review it. That's what probably led to Art Briles being fired. No one public has seen the report yet, but we'll see if they release it.

                  • With Briles, Starr, and surely the AD, gone, I wonder if this send BU back into the shitter as a department.

                    • The "damning" report is out.

                      Concusion -- Baylor is guilty of not establishing kangaroo courts for sexual assault in accordance with the Obama Administration's Title IX rules. Art Briles also failed to sufficiently act as judge, jury, and executioner when its players were accused of sexual assault and violence (accused, not convicted or even charged). The University is even guilty of applying a "very by the book student conduct approach that treated all respondents equally, regardless of their status as a student-athlete".

                      • It's a little more than that, but yeah -- it's mostly in response to the bullshit Dear Colleague "non-law" letter that is now Title IX law.

                        • That's what you got from that? Not surprised. WTF does Obama have to do with this.

                          • I'm honestly curious, Oracle -- how familiar are you with the OCR's Dear Colleague letter of 2011 (I think)? The summary section of the Baylor findings is textbook tracking of what the OCR NOW considers Title IX violations. Universities now have to act as quasi-criminal justice systems in response to any allegation of sexual violence or risk losing Federal funding.

                            I can go into this in mind-numbing detail. A relative of mine -- who is as ardent an Obamaniac as you can imagine -- works for OCR and deals with this newly minted issue on a daily basis.

                            • Its always about Obama. Unless its about Republicans....then its about "government".

                                This.

                                In the end, the wild speculation that Art Briles impeded law enforcement investigations or colluded to cover up sex crimes is nowhere to be found in that report. All of the accusations center around Baylor not having a sufficient separate system of law enforcement and justice.

                                The quote that I wrote before isn't made up by the way. It's actually in the report. One of Baylor's "violations" is treating people equally instead of giving the testimony of the accused extra weight.

                                Seriously.
