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.

    ND will get exposure to the Brandon Peters or Dylan McCaffrey teams early on.

    Can't wait! So happy this series is restarting.
    Go Detroit Lions!

      I retitled the thread lines. Old news now and I wanted to pay tribute to Clashmore Mike.

        Shout out to Jeff for changing the thread title. Mike was one of the good guys. I think we all miss his contributions here

          Yes, I still miss Clashmore.

            In the end, Notre Dame is a bigger name. This will be a huge national game. A home and home with Arkie isn't as valuable, PR wise.

            Ideally, you keep Arkie AND add ND, but money has to be made, and you can't fill your non-cons with home and homes.

            Good move by M.

              Its not a "bad" move, but I just think its a better move for ND than it is for Michigan. I am tired of seeing our athletic department cave in to those guys.

                Adding ND creates an interesting schedule quirk, according to Warde Manuel.

                Michigan will go to ND on Sept 1 2018, but ND will come to Ann Arbor on OCTOBER 26 2019. ND in the middle of Big Ten play.

                  Though I think its good for college football, this is the first time I'm disappointed since the Harbaugh hire and the entire the athletic department leadership team (besides no night games). I guess the leprechauns dictate to us, not the other way around.
                  I pretty much agree with this sentiment. We should have honored our commitment to Arkansas. If Arkansas had cancelled to play some other team we all would be bitching and calling the SEC all kinds of vile names which, by the way, they deserve. Other than winning against teams in the B10, I'm of the opinion that the measuring stick nationally for UM is versus the SEC and not ND. M's football program would not have been crushed if the ND series has been pushed back. Also, agree that ND should have paid the 2 million to Arkansas and that scheduling ND, MSU, and OSU as away games in the same year is not the result of clear thinking by the athletic department. In this instance, monkey on a string is what comes to mind.

                    I wish Michigan could play Jeremy Gallon in this 2018 game...
                    Let's get Gallon 300+ receiving yards vs ND. He did it vs IU.... AND had like 4 TDs vs ND.

                    What a beast of a WR in 2013. Gallon is playing Arena Football today FYI.

                    Random: IU fans must not like hearing the name Jeremy Gallon or Jehu Chesson. Haunts them.
                    Go Detroit Lions!

                      IU has fans?

                        I didn't even know they had a football team.

                            I'm happy that the team that's been Michigan's #2 rival for the bulk of my lifetime is back in the mix. I do think it's a shame that we start off at their place when we play the other 2 rivals on the road the same year. This could've been something to balance out things for season ticket holders but they blew it.

                              With HARBAUGH! they haven't had trouble selling season tickets.

                                More thawing of relations between the B1G and Notre Dame (they have joined the B1G Hockey). Nothing is going to happen for years but Notre Dame would be a huge boon to the B1G if they ever joined.

                                Glad to see the series is back.
