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.

  • Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr matey! Is that really the score bloke?
    Shut the fuck up Donny!

    Comment


    • ...... yeah, that was the score.

      Starting QB Luke Falk didn't play and Leach had to deal with a Freshman at QB. Sound familiar?

      I watched the first half and WSU wasn't the same WSU with Falk at QB that I'd seen a couple times during the regular season. It also seemed like the offense was uninpsired. Resembled M after Peters went down and O'Korn was forced in.

      Reportedly, Dantonio cried post game becoming overwhelmed with the emotion of bringing has team back from 3-9 in 2016 to 10-3. I like Dantonio but hate that MSU gets this kind of boost to start 2018. Emotion is a big part of CFB; while I have no doubt M plays with emotion but, as we've seen when M faces MSU, not with that kind of emotion.

      • One of the interesting subtexts of the Mark Dantonio era is his public face is that of a hard ass, behind the scenes he is a pretty emotional. I didn't hear about the crying thing but it wouldn't surprise me, he gets pretty close with his players.

        The expectations for next year are going to be sky high, especially since Scott and Davis are coming back.

        • Wazzu just isn't that good. Price does a great job with an under-talented team, but they'd be Maryland in the B10 East. Falk or not, Sparty was going to bludgeon them.
          Dan Patrick: What was your reaction to [Urban Meyer being hired]?
          Brady Hoke: You know.....not....good.

          • They are so small on the defensive line. The Spartans had trouble running in most of the games, but last night they looked like they were running against Minnesota.

              Probably true but until their last regular season, must have game that was a blow-out loss to PAC12 title contender Washington, they played well in an, albeit weak, conference.

              Wazzu wasn't ready for this game and a determined MSU team.

              • I did not have the same confidence that talent had in a Spartan bludgeoning.

                  Your right. Pac 12 is a piss poor conference. That said I thought Spartans would have trouble with Wazzu. Mainly schemes and match ups. I was wrong. They are the same ol' crappy WSU and same ol' crappy conference. Just another notch for D'antonio inBowl games.

                  • Just reported:

                    Former Michigan QB commit Messiah DeWeaver is transferring out of Michigan State. With Brian Lewerke looking like a pretty good starter for 2018 and perhaps beyond, the writing seems to be on the wall.

                    In case you don't remember, DeWeaver (class of 2016) committed to Brady Hoke but when Jim Harbaugh was hired, the two parties seemed to come to a mutual understanding that Michigan might not be the best fit.


                    Was this expected, Froot? Who'll be behind Lewerke in 2018?

                    • I hadn't heard much but he wasn't the backup, I think he got into 1 game but they generally went to Terry. The writing must have been on the wall. I presume Rocky Lombardi will be the backup, he is supposed to be good, he was a true Freshman this past season.

                      They also have two quarterbacks coming in.

                            • She needed to go, some of those trustees need to follow her out. She did a lot of good while she was president. but totally failed on the most important test.

                              Comment


                              • Wow, she really took responsibility for her deaf ear: "As tragedies are politicized, blame is inevitable. As president, it is only natural that I am the focus of this anger."
                                I'll let you ban hate speech when you let me define hate speech.
