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.

  • Hope Nussmeier was able to impress Damien Harris. This from Tyree Kinnel:

    "I just know that, well basically everyone knows, that he's on the edge," said Kinnel. "I think honestly he'll decommit pretty soon just based on conversations I had with him. Hopefully we can keep him here at Michigan. Even if he does go through something like George is, but hopefully we can get him back to 100% Michigan."

    • If you keep it up (sharing all the bad news), I might only have good news to share.

          • Fuck that. Doom and gloom is MUCH better.

            • I can start talking about OSU's recruiting. That's mostly really good news.

              • So Harris is considering a de-commit because Borges was fired?

                And further, he's concerned about the offense that will now be run by the OC from Alabama the last 2 years?

                Ok ... got it.

                • I'd guess M's lack of success running the ball has hurt them with Harris more than anything. Not to mention the losses piling up.

                  Comment


                  • Borges was, by all accounts, the guy that was closest to Harris. So, when he leaves M loses it's best relationship with Harris. Harris then has to look at M and think if he still feels comfortable with M. Unfortunately for M, the past season was god-awful enough from an offensive perspective to, at least, plant seeds of doubt as to whether this is a program that will win. They now need Nussmeier to re-establish the relationship.

                    I think this is temporary. M would really have to monkey this up to ultimately lose Harris. I think he will end up at M. FWIW, I think Campbell is long gone.

                    • Harris grew up a Wolverine fan but the Borges' connection like talent said can't be understated. They'll need to essentially re-recruit him, we'll find out a lot more what Harris is thinking if and when he speaks after the coaches talk with him after the dead period.

                      Comment


                      • As I understand it, one of Harris' coaches knew Gorges Borges from the Auburn days.

                        • If a quality offensive player wants to advance his chances for an NFL contract, there is no reason for him to play for M. If he wants more than that, like an education, he MIGHT be encouraged to play for M.

                          But all in all, Hoke needs to get on his f'ing knees and pray to God Nussmeir can turn things around on offense. Until he proves he can do this, M is going to find it hard to attract the talent they need for sustainability going forward.

                          It already may be too late. M can't recruit on its rep anymore. Kids don't care about Harmon and Howard and Woodson....... They may not even know who these guys are. They know the names of current coaches that are winners. Hoke is not among that list. The family BS doesn't matter either. It's about winning, advancing your own stock and that is clearly not what M football is about these days.

                          • M has talent in place for a good offense in '14 however they are probably too young other than at quarterback. Talent is better than anyone on the schedule other than Ohio. It's yet another year of lots of sophomores with some juniors mixed in...

                            Defense is more experienced, having 'some' seniors; Jake Ryan, Desmond Morgan, Frank Clark & Raymon Taylor.

                                As you yourself point out, the defense is going to have some serious senior leadership next year. There's also a fifth-year senior at QB. So WTF?
