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.

    • Purdue promoted from within to hire their next offensive coordinator.
      Terry Malone. Apparently he was OC at Michigan from 1997-2005. Malone's end at Michigan was just when I started watching sports... I don't remember much about him.

      My point: Given Purdue's budget, it's probably an acceptable hire. He was TE coach for Purdue last season and makes me ask: What TE did Purdue have? (The answer is nobody good).

      • I think Malone followed Stan Parrish.

        Malone brought a few new wrinkles, but the trademark of Michigan football at the time was RB's who went down with arm tackles, and QB's who stood motionless in the pocket until they got clobbered. Malone carried that tradition forward.

        • yeah Brady and Henson were absolutely terrible as immobile QBs getting the shit kicked out of them by opposing linemen

          Comment


          • Brian Griese, Tom Brady, Drew Henson, John Navarre, and Chad Henne were the QBs from 1997-2005.
            Not bad.
            Go Detroit Lions!

            • The new tradition that Terry Malone established was the QBs getting the ball batted down at the line of scrimmage.

                Didn't they win 5 big ten titles in that era?

                • I remember Carr/Malone/F'ing Tom Hermann teams being pretty good in that time period of 97-2005 ..... aside from that one predictable ass-railing by some huge underdog.

                  If I remember correctly, Terry Malone got hired by the Saints as their TEs coach when Carr retired and had a respectable NFL career.

                  Malone is an entirely Pro-Style offense guy. Purdue's O should be interesting with Malone as their OC.

                    Brady was the exception, and was the best Michigan QB since the days of Rick Leach. Henson thought he was a baseball player.

                    Exactly. And they all wore big bullseyes on their jerseys, refusing to move around in the pocket looking for passing lanes.

                    Didn't they win 5 big ten titles in that era?
                    And.. as well noted by people of your ilk, .. no national titles.

                    Yes, there were some very good teams, .. that under-achieved and played inconsistently. They'd have games where you'd think that they were headed to a NC, then they'd play a Coppin State or William and Mary ... and look like they never played football before. And, as ohio folks will remind us, ... since 2000, Michigan has done zip against them.

                    I'd almost forgot about Jim Hermann. The only way Carr could get rid of him was to ask the NY Jets to offer him a job ...

                    I agree Malone was a step up from Stan Parrish. But, Lloyd was still the HC, and had lost his passion for coaching ever since some guy wearing a vest got the job in ohio.

                    • Henson just took the guaranteed money to play baseball from a Buckeye fan (Steinbrenner) instead of attempting to play in the NFL. Hopefully Henson was wise with his signing bonus from the Yankees.

                      • Don't forget the bomb-sniffing dogs in 2004. Lloyd totally wins that game if that hadn't happened

                          I don't know DSL, the 5-year ban/sentence that Tressel received essentially ended his nefarious activities in disgrace. I imagine it's no fun being busted, just ask AA.

                          Oh, is that Sandusky? Criminals, they all look the same to me.

                          • I forgot to list Matt Gutierrez.
                            Damn, so many backup NFL QBs.... And Tom Brady + Griese

                            • I always thought Matt Gutierrez got a raw deal at Michigan with Lloyd Carr.

                              Carr was a guy who "stuck with the starter" no matter what. Even when Henne struggled, he would NOT put Gutierrez in the game. In his final season Henne's arm was nearly falling off, and Carr still played him. Gutz was gone by then, but Carr stuck with his starter(s) to a fault.
