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.

    "Very expensive for out of state students, unfortunately."

    USC is very expensive for all. It's a private university

    As for Detroit Dan: "Never heard of the others"

    Never heard of Briles? What are you doing. living under a rock?

      I looked up Briles and see that he just got fired. So I don't think he will be one of the top coaches going forward.

        I bet Briles gets another coaching job no later than the beginning of the 2017 season.

          I was tongue in cheek when I mentioned Briles. The criteria was "famous". He's certainly well known now! But to your actual point about celebrity coaches, it's a three horse race and the rest of the pack is waaaay back in the rearview.

            I bet he receives a lengthy show cause that prevents that from happening.

              I hope you're right, Mike.

              If he did what has been reported, he should never have another HC job again.

                Just watched a video on M Live of Harbaugh working at the Atlanta satellite camp.

                Man, I'm so proud to have this guy as our HC.

                Michigan hit the jackpot when they got Harbaugh back. Thank you San Francisco 49ers.

                Absolutely the most significant hire in Michigan football history since Schembechler.

                  Highly expect a lengthy show cause like Tressel.

                      LOL, and Saban is worried about satellite camps? If you ask me, good old prison ought to do the trick.

                      I guess there is law higher than man's on the Alabama campus, so it appears Robinson will answer to Saban. LOL


                      Robinson's status with Alabama pending legal action
                      by Dylan Perego Jun 02, 10:16 AM

                      Cam Robinson's future with Alabama remains up in the air, and head coach Nick Saban believes team action will reflect the results of the legal process surrounding the standout offensive tackle.

                      Saban is taking his time in determining an exact form of discipline for his star player. Robinson, along with teammate Hootie Jones, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and possessing a handgun in the presence of drugs last month in West Monroe, LA.

                      Robinson also received a felony charge for possessing a stolen firearm in the incident.

                      "It's the first time Cam has ever had an issue or a problem," Saban told Chris Low of ESPN. "We're handling it and managing it internally and making him do things to hopefully change his behavior. I'm waiting to see how this whole legal thing plays out, because it's not really what it seems to be."

                      Both Robinson and Jones were reportedly at a shooting range earlier that night. Robinson had purchased the gun a year prior, but never registered it. He claims he did not know the gun was stolen.

                      Robinson has been touted by some to be a potential top-10 pick in next year's NFL draft.

                        These HC's must cringe when they hear the shit these kids get into these days. There's just so much trouble out there for them and really no place to hide.

                          Michigan vs. Alabama becoming college football's most desired matchup
                          Forget about the satellite camps. Focus on the potential for a dream matchup between Alabama and Michigan with coaches Nick Saban and Jim Harbaugh, instead...

                          Predictably, we're eating this up.

                          We speculate about how much Harbaugh gets under Saban's skin, chastise Harbaugh for trying to put himself in the same class as the five-time national champion and entrench ourselves with our beliefs on, of all things, a summer football camp for high school kids...

                          It's not the matchup that would save college football — the sport is fine. It’s not even the best coaching matchup in college football right now. That’s still Saban vs. Urban Meyer, who led Ohio State to a 42-13 win against Michigan in Ann Arbor last year.

                          Harbaugh needs to beat Meyer before he can even think about Saban. But we’ve seen Saban vs. Meyer four times, and there’s a good chance we’ll see that one again. Those two have eight national championships between them.

                          Harbaugh’s persona brings something different to the table. He is page views and eyeballs. He has become the dominant personality in college football, somehow bigger than Saban and Meyer. Fans enjoy watching Michigan lose — remember the reaction to the punt fumble against Michigan State — as much as they enjoy watching Alabama lose. If these two ever cross paths, somebody goes down...

                          Those who think Harbaugh would wilt at the mere sight of Saban should look at the 2012 NFL regular-season matchup against New England and Bill Belichick. Harbaugh-led San Francisco jumped out to a 31-10 lead after three quarters in Foxborough before holding off a Tom Brady rally for a 41-34 victory.

                          If Michigan gets to the College Football Playoff, that means they will have beaten Michigan State and Ohio State. That also means they would have a team capable of playing with the Crimson Tide.

                          Would Alabama fans prefer a rematch with Meyer or a shot at Harbaugh given the choice? Saban has beaten Bob Stoops, Mack Brown, Les Miles, Brian Kelly and Dabo Swinney to clinch national championships. Would a win against Harbaugh trump all those victories?

                          It’s a matchup that might never happen – keep in mind Saban turns 65 in October. Conference championships and playoff matchups are tough to predict, and a lot of things have to happen for dream matchups like these to materialize. Yet the SEC and Big Ten have enough bowl ties to make that happen should both teams miss the Playoff.

                          Still, the bigger the stage, the better this would be. Alabama and Michigan have combined to claim 27 national championships. Imagine them playing for the next one.

                                This is the part of the daft article I would have bolded:

                                Dan Patrick: What was your reaction to [Urban Meyer being hired]?
                                Brady Hoke: You know.....not....good.
