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.

    Mike doesn't look happy; not one bit
    Repugnant is the creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here.

      MSU getting trucked, didn't see this one coming. Cant remember a Dantonio team looking this bad in a while (besides Bama), maybe vs osu at home (?) but that was more like a late collapse IMO

        Wow; running into the kicker

          Why would Wisky snap that with :10 on the play clock? Run it down and take the delay.

                That was a thorough demolition. You wouldn't guess who had the freshman QB.

                  I've had you guys pegged for a rough '16 though I'm sure Sparty will play their very best game of the season vs M.

                    I thought they got out coached, but I think Wisconsin is better than originally thought. The offensive game plan was way too much manball and way too vanilla defensively. The former is to be expected but not the latter.

                      The stats paint a weird picture of this game. MSU had more plays, more first downs and more total yards. Oh yeah, ....... and more turnovers. Turned the ball over 4 times on 1 fumble and 3 INTs.

                      That last "win" is the killer.

                      We now know ND is BAD. So, kinda dilutes the value of MSU's ass kicking of ND and drops MSU's O and D down a peg or two.

                      Wisky? Dunno, man. LSU is not good. We saw two not good teams duke it out in a scoring duel involving field goals with Auburn getting by LSU 18-13. Not sure Wisconsin's win over LSU amounts to much in evaluating them.

                      I don't think MSU is as bad as they looked yesterday. M/MSU will still be a battle.

                        Don't ever judge a team on one week.

                        Wisky can defend the run. Whether they can handle a two-dimensional offense is still TBD. But, their front 7 can play. Fournette and LJ Scott are two very legit RBs playing on teams that are dedicated to running the ball. Harris and O'Connor, however, are not two very legit QB.

                        This is probably perfect for M. Wisky is inflated. M should have the speed on the edge to move the ball well-enough to score. Wisky still has a frosh QB -- I mean, their passing game won't be good. And it's in AA. If this were in Madison, it's a different story, IMO. I'd have it as M -3 in Madison. In AA, I think it's more than 7 and I'd probably put it at 10ish for the number.

                              That's where Dantonios teams has always excelled, always near in the top ten in + turnovers. I think they were about +14 last year. Really miss Cook taking care of the ball, O'Conner is already called Maxwell 2.0

                                Yeah that was Maxwell bad yesterday.
