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.

    Heh. I just think a basketball icon of a UNC player is funny on an M football uni. I'll get used to it, I'm sure.

    And first class? Are the materials used by the Thai children to construct the "Jumpman" uni better than the materials they use to construct the "basic" Nike fare?

      Especially when the jersey gets a bit askew and the logo looks more like a gymnast doing the splits. But, right or wrong, nobody has yet asked me to define what's tasteful, even though it would be for the greater good.

        Is that LT doing lines of coke before during and after games LT or the one with an under aged escort?

            Another pre-season prediction of 7th place in the B1G:

              Looks like the Sporting News, ESPN and Lindy's are the most optimistic, picking Michigan to finish 5th.

                I'll shoot more towards 7 until this suicide squad does something to deserve it.

                  I can't help but be optimistic. It could go wrong if Donlon isn't the defensive whiz he has been elsewhere, or if Beilein can't let Donlon do his thing or won't adjust enough. But if they can at least strike the right balance between O and D, and develop a Plan B when the shots aren't falling, it should be a solid tournament team.

                    I think your Harbaugh blinders are on. Are you talking about the NCAA tourney or Big 10? This is a NIT team to me

                      It's an NCAA team.

                          Still a pretty decent amount of seasoned talent.

                            They are fringe top 25.

                              Alcohol is a depressant. Maybe it's you?

                                They haven't had a healthy team since they went to the final 4. It's impossible to ever gauge how they're going to do.
