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 great thing about UM football and the Big House is that it don't get any better than this. Big time all the way!

      Looks like I may need to bring a raincoat or an umbrella (or both).

      Rain in the forecast for Saturday

        You can't bring umbrellas into the stadium. Go to a local Walmart and buy a decent poncho with a hood. These work best when you're sitting as they cover your legs nicely. They'll also work if its raining while you're walking around.

            I say with the huge prevalence of yoga pants these days, you could do nicely following a bit of eye candy down to the stadium. Certainly makes my walk go by quickly

                From Ann Arbor Golf and Country Club. Only applies if you're driving and have parked on the Golf Course before.

                Football Parking, 10/1/2016 Due to the weather, football parking at AAGOC will be open only to season pass holders, Park 'n Party pass holders, and club members. Only AAGOC Members will be allowed entry through the main gate on Stadium Blvd.; all other pass holders will enter through Gate #2 on Main Street, the lower gate. The golf course is extremely wet and fragile. Pass holders may not be able to access areas they are accustomed to. All vehicles will be directed by staff. Saving of spaces will not be allowed. Go Blue!

                  Parking in the neighborhoods may be a little tighter, though.

                    Game was freaking fantastic. Atmosphere was amazing. Sat in section 18 (corner end zone, row 2). Got on TV right behind McShay & Blackledge during their second half interview. The Big House absolutely exploded after that Speight to Darboh playaction TD pass in the fourth. And seeing that Lewis pick live was indescribable.

                    Ended up parking in some dude's backyard for $30 a few blocks from the stadium. Me and the homie already planning our next Big House excursion.

                    Also it is really epic just how much maize & blue is represented across the country...when we got on our flight at 7 AM from Dallas to Detroit, there were at least 20 UM fans boarding it with us.

                    Go Blue!!!

                        Yep Stan it really was incredible. Tremendous atmosphere. I'll probably go back the year after next since I'll be going to see UM vs Florida in Dallas next year.

                          That's on my list too. Just hope it doesn't turn out like the last trip there.
