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.

      What was his advice, DSL? "Stay over the Mendoza line and you're good."?

              This. But you're screwed unless it's embraced by the program's culture.

I'll read the report when it comes out. The same as I did with ND's, Nebraska's a few years back, and the paragraph on UNC.

                LMAO!! yes... "rumors" Is that the new word for people admitting they're receiving cash from a school. "rumors"... LOL

                  The UNC thing cracks me up, 18 years of wrongdoing and there will be nothing of significance. Jerry Tarkanian was absolutely correct.

                      I haven't followed the Ole Miss case that much because I really don't care (why in god's name would I?). But all of what I have seen so far are message board acqusations and tweets - and a quote or two by a former player that badly needed a cross and follow-up. How much money was given in total and from who and to whom? Was it recruiting-based for a prospect or "humanitarian" for a current player? Is it ongoing and systemic or an isolated event? What is the hard eveidence, the paper trail? Tons of questions to have to be asked and answered before judgement and sentence are passed.

                      HOWEVER, If there is incontrovertible evidence and a transcript of a legit admission from a non-apocryphal source, then good for the NCAA. Should be open and shut. I still won't care very much. I'll read the NCAA judgment and move on.

                      As for ranking the 'dirtiest schools in football' on message board rumor or gossip, yeah, I have no interest. Absent hard evidence or first-hand knowledge, It's high school level gossip to me. Like someone named Madison or Ashley making a list of the sluttiest girls in her school who all happen to be cheerleaders. And even with evidence it's not like proves innocence or guilt before or after that specific episode. It's like Madison exclaiming, "See! I told you she was a slut!" and assuming that it proves all cheerleaders are sluts, past, present, and future.

                          UNC was interesting. Supposedly, the no-show classes were available to the general student body which did not made it "illegal" in the NCAA's eyes.

                          How they explained it was "If we give $1000 cash to just each member of the football team, it's a penalty. If we give $1000 cash to every student on campus, then it's okay."

                          Kind of ingenious. Thats why Bama is now giving $10k to each Freshman admitted. (Kidding entropy. Kidding. Settle down).

                            Sigh.

                            Nope. Just refusal to pass judgment without hard evidence. I'm gossip-adverse. Always have been. You do you, though.
