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.

    Very, very bad news for MSU ..... Federal Report states MSU did not provide adequate campus safety measures for students on campus and mis-handled reports of sexual assault in the Nassar case among others. The report mentions "lack of Institutional Control."

    This is going to be DOE/Title IX stuff. Not sure how the NCAA will act, if at all. If they had wanted to act, they would have already done so. My guess is that they will stay clear and let the Feds deal with it. However, the Nassar stuff is just as bad, IMO, as what PSU did regarding Jo Pa and Sandusky. The NCAA sanctioned PSU. They should sanction MSU - in what manner is debatable but the Lack of Institutional Control thing is definitely in their wheel house.

    It is a shit show, the problem with MSU is it is too close to Lansing and it is forever tied up in this sort of nonsense. Good for Snyder not to appoint an Engler ally. It needs a clean sweep but that is hard to do.

    What a shit-show. Engler zeroed out Perles' $200,000 debt to gain his seat on the board. Thought supporters could persuade Rick Snyder to appoint a political ally:

    What kind of a cretin says that victims of a child molester are digging the attention? What sick fantasies is he projecting to have the idea that the victims are enjoying it. Yes its fun to publicly relive your sexual assault repeatedly. Tom Izzo still pondering if they got the right guy in the first place?

    MSU board to meet Thursday, trustee says 'Engler's reign of terror is over'



    Michigan's attorney general looks to interview Engler about MSU

    MSU Trustee Joel Ferguson on Thursday denied allegations that MSU stonewalled the investigation. Ferguson said the university has withheld just 29 documents, which are being reviewed by a judge. Rossman McKinney said the university initially withheld or redacted 7,651 documents.
    Nassar had sexually assaulted young women for decades, Tom Izzo who hid rapists is pondering if they got the right guy in the first place?

    MSU President John Engler will resign, after he said survivors of Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse were “enjoying” their moment in the “spotlight.”

    Yeah there were times when he was a stud but other times he just wasn't effective.

    I'm glad that we don't have to face him again at full strength. He gave us all kinds of trouble in 2016.

    LJ Scott is going pro, its probably for the best, so it means he's playing in the bowl game. It would have been nice to have an extra back around but it seems like it would have muddied the situation. It didn't make sense for him to stay, his draft stock probably wasn't going to get better.

    Simmon "Got major donors around" for the new Breslin so she can turn the other way when it comes to sexual assault, rape and complete misconduct of employees. Ferguson turned a blind eye for the "good" of 'Cover up U'. It’s disgusting.
