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.

    The case for Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio to LSU

      I hope they don't mistakenly hire Mike Dantonio.

        Hahahaha...stop man, you're killin' me. The Mike thing gets funnier every time. But hey, you forgot to throw in the little brother comment. Must be slipping.

          Tom Harmon isn't laughing either.

            What a disaster, they earned every bit if that loss.

              Another game that I watched in its entirety. Besides DE Malik McDowell, MSU's front sucks and now he's going to miss a half v BYU and that is not going to be an easy out. MSU could be looking at 3 losses in a row.

              IU ran a nice balanced attack rolling up 437 yards most of that in the 2nd half. IU's QB Lagow was way better than O'Conner who looked confused as hell most of the time. Not sure about MSU's secondary either they don't seem to be able to play zone or man very well.

              Have to admit, I'm chuckling a bit.

                  LOL, like last October some time. Who knew that's all it took.

                    We have had an MSU thread for a while until recently.

                      Yeah bit Buchanan gave this one an awful hex.

                        Dantonio should have no trouble with BYU at home. MSU wins by 2 TDs, BYU allowed more than 500 passing yards to Toledo on Friday night at home. If MSU is going to make a change at QB, now might be the time to do it.

                          Sparty hosts BYU (2-3), Sparty should win but not sure that offense will be able to get in the end zone much against teams that have a decent defense.

                            When was the last time MSU was not ranked top 25?


                            • #44
                              I seen one of those local reporter types last night when leaving work. I wont say his name but he likes poking Michigan and the Big Ten. Anyway gave Drew some crap, but it was all in fun. Told me "hey I picked Michigan to win a close one (vs Wisconsin)"

                              2013 last time Sparty wasn't ranked in the top 25

                              8-4 still would be a good year, and a possible win over Michigan

                                Mark Dantonio says fans who watch at home with "a big old beer can or soda pop" will have to "wait it out a little bit" with Tyler O'Connor.
