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.

  • Right. But coaches aren’t a particularly big deal these days. In any event, the “we own Jersey “ nonsense is mercifully at an end.

      Was this a serious post?

        • No. It was a tongue in cheek opportunity to post about lacrosse

          • I thought it a nice effort.

            Also, if someone has to ask if they're being berated by Stan then they've never been berated by Stan. Or been in the same area code when someone was.

            • Yeah, my scroll wheel gets a lot of activity when I wander over into this part of the Lions forum community.

              • Tyler Friday commits to northern Kentucky. On field performance matters.

                • OSU does a pretty good job of recruiting in terms of showing recruits what it's like to a player and mapping out their path over the next 3 or 4 seasons. That, and Larry Johnson is about as good as it gets recruiting DL and Friday really likes Schiano. And Columbus and AA are different vibes -- different tastes (probably least important).

                  Finally, Ohio State's DL production (and DB production) is probably even a better selling point to recruits than anything else -- I guess that is part and parcel with LJSr.

                  Whatever. The kid they really need is Rasheed Walker. We'll see if they can beat out PSU for him.

                    Tyler Friday would have been the 2nd highest rated recruit in M's class just behind Reese. Instead, he becomes Ohio State's 12th highest rated recruit in its class.

                    • Yeah, not really a surprise given the update last week. Just another kick to UM fans while we're down. And there have been a lot of kicks the last few months.

                      • Shit recruiting class (assuming Otis Reese bolts, because duh). Barely better than a RichRod bunch. 2019 won't be much better once the stars start jumping ship, which they will.

                        • Kind of what you deserve with a five loss team AND not having a football facility like Clemson or Bama. M’s is good, but not in that top tier.

                          • Haven't we upgraded our facilities in the last 10 years? I thought we were at least on par by now.

                            • I lived through Cooper. I will never tire of this, Hanni.

                                Believe the weight room renovation is now complete. It looks nice from the few photos that are out.
                                Now if you look at other facilities like Clemson, Bama, Oregon, Texas A&M, and Ohio St... they are better.
                                Not a big deal, but I would imagine some recruits view that as a selling point when weighing other factors.

                                The five losses certainly mattered more.
