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.

            Only reason they're ranked is because of the high commitments. When you go avg. ranking, they're not in the top 15.

              • Ah, the Harbaugh Effect. Like Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus, he merely stomps his feet and stars spring from the earth.

                2-Star Victor Viramontes when Harbaugh discovered him, now suddenly a 4-star.

                Norco, Calif. athlete Victor Viramontes has moved into the Top247. The guy is kind of a freak athletically. A big, physical athletic quarterback that can rush for over 200 yards on offense and put together multiple goalline stand tackles on defense. He's already done that once this year and more wild performances are likely to come. In addition to his playmaking ability on the field, Viramontes has impressive athletic testing numbers and is a workout warrior who should be a talent maximizer in Ann Arbor.

                • A lot off topic, but this is an actual story headline on ESPN golf:

                  What Athletes Eat: Golfer Paula Creamer

                  http://espn.go.com/golf/?externalNav=true

                  It has been a few years since my UM journalism class (about 50), but we were taught to be a little more careful about this sort of thing.

                  • Viramontes sounds like exactly the kind of player Harbaugh is looking for.

                    Versatile and tough.

                    • It seems the Harbaugh Effect also shot Brad Hawkins straight down.

                      Anyway, congrats to Viramontes for getting the upgrade from 247, though he still remains a composite 3*. Interestingly, according to 247, Viramontes would be the 14th best player in OSU's class. Thanks for the link, OP! Good stuff!

                      • Hawkins apparently ran a 4.8 forty, not that he was ever expected to be a 4.5 guy but a legit 4.8 for a receiver is a bit worrisome unless you're running great routes and have great change of direction.

                        • He looks faster than that on tape, although still not a burner. And he does excel at most the other things. I still like him as a prospect.

                            • Most of the 40 times I read I have little trust in. You'd be surprised how much people lose off their 40's when they run in a reputable camp setting.

                              • I was just gonna say that. I believe the 4.8 as much as I believe the 4.4s.
