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.

  • You're such a pushover ...


    • The Big10 hasn't won a title in 15 years but since Izzo winning they've put six different teams into the Final...speaks to a lot of conference depth

      2002 Indiana
      2005 Illinois
      2007 OSU
      2009 Michigan State
      2013 Michigan
      2015 Wisconsin

      Now-member Maryland was champ in 2002


      • LOL, life on the road in the B1G.


        • Texas A&M was down 12 points with 34 seconds left in the game and tied it up with a 14-2 run in 33 seconds. Unbelievable. Now it's going to double OT tied at 83. Insane.


          • A&M wins 92-88 in 2OT. They were down 70-58 in the final minute of regulation. I wouldn't want to be a NIU fan tonight. Or ever, but especially tonight. Ouch.


            • One of the craziest finishes I've ever seen.
              I was streaming the game and was about to switch to the Xavier - Wisconsin game when NIU was up 12... Glad that didn't happen.

              Poor NIU

              • Few days old but some strange coaching moves...Jamie Dixon leaves Pitt for TCU (Pitt tired of first round exits and boring-ass basketball I guess but still...) and then Pitt hires Kevin Stallings from Vanderbilt to replace him. Boggles the mind.


                • surprised to see no comments on the game last night..
                  Grammar... The difference between feeling your nuts and feeling you're nuts.


                  • Was Jim Harbaugh involved in some way?


                    • See? They would have had better ratings had they included Harbaugh ...

                      I didn't watch either ... for that very reason ... :-P


                      • I couldn't make it past halftime because of the time of the game.
                        Mountain time zone people are lucky.

                        • I'm in Missouri for a family reunion with my wife's family, and we were still visiting while the game was on. I didn't hear the score until after midnight CST when we got back to the hotel.


                          • I watched the game. Definitely a classic, one of the best championship games ever.


                            • Yep
                              In Columbus, of course, the fanbase holds the University accountable for doing the wrong thing. -Talent, Esq-


                              • Great game. I was out of town too, at a hotel near the Denver airport. At first all I could find was the horrid Bleacher Report Carolina Team Stream. I guess they are doing one-sided broadcasts now. It was just disgusting. Absolutely dripping with bullshit. Then I went out to the lobby and watched on the regular CBS feed. Should have stuck with the stupid partisan one until the end to get the reward of some Carolina-centric anguish. Anyways, well...

                                1. I like Jay Wright. A lot. Wish we had a coach like that. IIRC I've said that before here.

                                2. Time zones are generally a pain if you're a fan of an east-coast team, IMO. I found that to be the case here too. I like being able to put the kids to bed and have missed only the first quarter of a game.
