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.

    Last spring game, I think only two QBs participated in the game.
    I wonder how many will this spring game....
    O'Korn, Malzone, Peters (?), Speight, Gentry (?), and Morris.

    Can't wait to see those Jumpman/ Jordan new uniforms! and hopefully this 2016 class finishes strong... Rashan Gary!
    Go Detroit Lions!

        So who will transfer from Michigan? Morris, Green, and Isaac seem like candidates.

        I don't think anybody now sees Morris as the starting QB next year. It's funny how many people believed the race with Rudock this year was close.

          We may see more life out of Shane Morris than what I originally thought.

          He says Harbaugh agreed to let him red shirt, when it became obvious that Rudock was going to be the starter. Morris felt that the year off would allow him to become more familiar/comfortable with Harbaugh's system, and give him a better chance to compete in 2016. So it sounds like he intends to compete with O'Korn for the starter's job.

          It could blow up in his face if Taysom Hill transfers in.

          RE: Peters, .. I think he's destined for a red shirt unless he comes in and just blows everyone away. He's good, but I don't think he's THAT good.

            Lots of candidates to transfer but I don't see Morris leaving, maybe after a lousy Spring. I think he wants a degree from Michigan and will stay through next season, then potentially transfer if he doesn't move up the depth chart.

            Willie Henry still undecided if he goes pro. He's a really good defensive lineman but with Bryan Mone, Ryan Glasgow, Chris Wormley and hopefully Rashan Gary; he wouldn't be a significant loss.

              Morris has all the time in the world. Worst case, he graduates and is allowed to start his 5th year at a lesser program.

                  I hate you with the power of a thousand suns.

                  That said, 2016 is CFP or bust!

                      It was good but to be great it needs to be true.

                        It's untrue if your snapshot of a "program" is something other than the past 10 years. So, you know....

                        Anywho, clear B10 favorites. I really don't see M losing.

                          I suppose Morris could play at UM someday, but it sure doesn't seem likely.

                          I hope Willie Henry stays. He can flat out play.

                            Shane Morris transfers to Purdue for his 5th year.
                            Don Brown, 1st year Purdue head coach, and Morris reunite. Brown is hired as Purdue's head coach because he has a mustache.
                            Purdue goes 4-8 that year.
                            Go Detroit Lions!
