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.

        • Is AlabamAlum actually saying that the B10 and SEC cheat to exactly the same Nth degree? Or is he saying that SEC cheating is exactly equal to or less than the B10?

          If only we had the internet back in he 80s, I'm sure RiceAlum would have made the same claims about the SWC.

            Huh?

            I've been pretty consistently upbeat since Harbaugh arrived. I've sustained that even though signs of QB regression and terrible OL play were present during the entire 2017 season.

            There was a sharp downturn in my optimism after the OB Bowl. To me, it represented the coalescence of most of M's big problems.

            Then there was a slight up-tick when it appeared a house-cleaning was afoot on offense. Then the last 2-3w happened and you have exactly what I mentioned up thread when I was asked by WingsFan.

            Disappointing and the first time I experienced that kind of thing since Hoke's last year.

            • To his original statement, you will need to prove Nick Saban is cheating.

              To my statement, I am talking present day and evidence.

              If you extrapolate that because of Ole Miss, all are guilty, the same can be done for child fucking and the Big Ten.

              • STOP ...... we all know Saban cheats, the SEC is populated by bag men making payments to recruits like Reese and Eyikor. We don't need any fucking evidence. Bama and now UGA (well, Saban's spawn running the place now) living at the top of CFB's food chain is evidence enough.

                It's a conspiracy.

                • Eh. Where you sit is where you stand. Here, we are always against cheating and never need to explain anything away. OSU is somewhere in the middle. Sometimes talent's in here guffawing at any notion, and at other times he shares our outrage. AA, on the other hand, appears only to stand with the ranks of the rules-minded when Mississippi State comes up. Is what it is.

                  • Hack: You say that 'where you sit..." horseshit alot. Stop. It's not poignant or insightful - and even in its original usage the author was torn apart. When I see it, I stop reading, roll my eyes, and move on. It's become a cliche with you and is less impactful than a bad Kapture meme. Tl;dr stop.

                    Jeff: The thing is, if Saban were dirty, he would have be outed long ago. We both know that. Too many years with too many disgruntled former players and ex assistants. But we can agree that all BigTen people fuck babies. Deal?

                    • You could have said "If ___________ were dirty he would have been outed long ago" about plenty of coaches. Pitino is a recent example.

                      Which lessens the credibility of the first part of your post. Raises the question of what exactly you would expect talking NCAA rules on a Michigan board, but nobody is forcing you to do so.

                      Comment


                      • Years ago at Hawaii, Rick Pitino was guilty of 8 violations, lied to the NCAA, and it was so bad the NCAA advised the school to disassociate itself from Pitino. He was recently fired at Louisville in a huge scandal. Bad example is bad.

                        Not sure what you mean about it being a Michigan forum. Are you suggesting I should not speak up, just keep quiet and know my role? If that was your point, kindly fuck off.

                        • Right. 40-year gap. Hmm. Or take Boeheim's decades of clean living before he was finally caught if you need to parse. With some guys it's obvious and with others less so, and on the continuum there are coaches at many points in between.

                          I'm not suggesting that, and will not fuck off. Neither of us have any business telling the other what to post or when to stop. You are a valued poster here. My point is that it's pretty obvious what Michigan fans are going to think about compliance, and if you don't want to hear that, nobody is forcing you to read those posts or participate in those discussions.

                          Comment


                          • But if you are using the premise that a clean NCAA record means nothing, then turn your weary eyes to Harbaugh - he has been clean, that means nothing, right? Ditto Certainly can't say that for all of your previous coaches. In fact, the M football team has only been off major probation a few years now after it hired a coach who cheated and had a record of cheating at his previous school, as well.

                            Further, I think about compliance. I an actually a rule of law guy even though the NCAA is a petty joke of an institution. It is college athletics version of sharia law, but Saban is and had been clean despite ridiculous gossip on certain message boards.

                            • Yes. For all we know, Harbaugh might turn out to be dirtier than Jackie Sherrill. He'd have to get around Michigan's compliance department, and we have plenty of anecdotal evidence of how that group would fare in a proper peer review, but it's not beyond the realm. If that's a point you wish to have everyone keep in mind during the discussion, you're free to point it out. But keep to the facts regarding Michigan's history. People aren't stupid.
