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.

  • When Moeller was the coach he had a contract with an apparel manufacturer that was not tied to the university. He donated all the funds to a scholarship program for the children of his assistant coaches (this was the time when assistant coach salaries were dictated by the NCAA) When UM first went with Nike he had to give up his side deal. I don't know if coaches get today get anything from University contracts. I know that for years basketball coaches made side deals with sneaker manufactures

      Davidson is going to get the Steph Curry brand and their program is going to shoot to the moon in popularity. LeBron who?

      Anywho, saw some terrific looking gift baskets given to the M OVs on Twitter. I'm wondering what the Ole Miss recruits gift baskets look like...maybe they are big enough to fit hot chicks in them...like stripper b-day cake style.

      • I guess you didn't read Jalon Rose's account of being recruited by UM where he basically said if he didn't get laid on a visit to UM he wasn't coming.

        • How does that get arranged? Does an Athletic Department have a stable of girls at the ready?

          • They are called hostesses, aka escorts. They are a lot of fun at parties but give you diseases if you don't wear protection...

            I'd ask AA and the rest of the SEC how these things are arranged down there, I'd imagine in the SEC every school has its own brothel.

            • Making daddy proud... I can just hear Jim Bob bragging to his friends that his daughter helped secure the new QB recruit.

              • There are plenty of jersey chasers that are happy to fuck around with athletes. I don't think there's much need for the school to arrange these things formally.

                  • And you know this because they were chasing your ass over campus? I'll bet guess not. Couldn't get laid in a whorehouse, my bet.

                    • That's always been the least of my issues. You're wrong on all accounts...

                            • I don't pretend to know jack shit about recruiting but for you to suggest that you could predict Bell over Green because of how they played high school football is so full of shit that you are lucky I only consider you an idiot. Such a prognostication would secure you a place on a Division 1 team. Something that will never happen in your life!
