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.

    Thanks to the defense setting up short fields for the offense to score against a God awful Rutgers defense. Don't know exactly what to take from this game besides Rudock and the passing game better perform the rest of the seaon, as the run game is just not happening.

          You should be forced to listen to Brandstader and Dierdorf. Was in Mississippi for a funeral this weekend and picked it up on Sirius Radio.

          I cannot for the life of me figure out how in the hell Brandstater was hired to do play by play. He's awful. I like Dan Dierdorf but he and Brandstater are constantly talking over the top of each other. With this, Brandstater was futily behind missing play after play. You have no idea where the ball is, what down it is, time remaining, where the ball gets spotted after a play.

          Impossible to follow the game.

          My only observations in this pummeling of a terrible football team are the cluster fuck that is Big Ten officiating continues. Misunderstood and misapplied rules mark most BT games I watch. Most contests are over-officiated. This in marked contrast to SEC games.

          Rudock had a nice day against a shit defense. The disturbing thing is that it did nothing for the run game. What that tells us is that M isn't going to have one until Harbaugh gets a quality RB and brings him along. hopefully that will happen quickly.

          I think this game does tell us that M may be able to keep up with IU. One game at a time.

              Don't fall into the trap of what one game can tell us moving forward. That's been shot down too many times in CFB, this year and history.

              Indiana was going to be a reasonably tough game before today and nothing has changed since. Rate it about a 6 or 7 on the worry scale.

                You can look at Harbaugh's body of work this season and you can certainly project that on the probability of it producing a win in future games. My bet is that Advance Stats, unlike it did last week following the Minnesota game where projected win margins and probabilities decreased in M's remaining games, both will increase after the win against Rutgers.

                That is because Harbaugh is proving that he has the capacity of optimizing what he's got and that is reflected in measures of offensive and defensive efficiency. No question, team 136 has plenty of warts but Harbaugh continues to find work arounds. No run game? No long ball? Unleash the screen game as a replacement for both. Call the full back and TE number. IOW, optimize your players and take what the D gives. Did that in Spades v. Rutgers. I'd give him a good chance of continuing to do that v. remaining opponents.

                  I really could care less what Advanced Stats say. They change from week to week after their projections from that week were wrong.

                    Indiana (0-5 in B1G) can score points but they allow just as many. M should trade punches with them, M might be a favorite but I wouldn't touch any point spread. It's a game that's worried me for awhile even though I don't think too highly of the Hoosiers as I see them as a tough match-up for M's defense...

                    Rudock is a good bet to have another good game statistically albeit versus a lousy Hoosier defense. M's defense might look similar to what that they did against the Gophers as the Hoosiers is one of the B1G rare offenses that can move the ball on the ground and via the air. M 38, Indiana 27.

                    • Spread will be about -7 or so.

                      • The IU game represents a chance for our D to show they can improve. They present a big challenge ... we saw what they did to the bucks.
                        Yes, a big worry game.... sadly.

                        • It's gonna be a challenge, but nothing to be too scared about.

                          • Not sure what Indiana team you will get. The one that played Iowa and OSU close? Or the one that got blown out by Penn State and lost to Rutgers?

                            • Jordan Howard their rushing offense missed the PSU & Rutgers games and Sudfield was knocked out vs the Buckeyes. They'll be a challenge.
