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.

  • I vastly underrated just how bad Rutgers is. Wow that was embarrassing, I felt bad for those kids in a way. But then again everybody, coaches and players, looked like they just flat out quit. That team should not be in the BIG. Can we have a do over and take Pittsburgh instead?


    • I've heard multiple (non-Michigan) people say that Harbaugh should thank Brady Hoke for this talent and the "9 NFL Draft prospects."

      Partially ridiculous... but yes, Hoke is the reason why most upperclassmen physically are enrolled at the University of Michigan...
      1. How many of these players would be NFL prospects if Hoke developed them?
      2, Harbaugh will develop more NFL prospects, clearly.
      3. Look at what Brady Hoke has done to Oregon's defense.
      Go Detroit Lions!


      • At least they can laugh at themselfs, Rutgers band plays Michigan fight song while team gets blown out. Anyone remember Hoke going into UCONN ?


        • Defense.

          "They went three-and-out on their first 14 drives (13 punts and one fumble). Their 16 drives ended with 15 punts and 1 fumble.

          • We're bowl eligible!!!

              I did too. I don't think I've ever done this in my quarter century's worth of rooting for the Wolverines...but I was actually rooting for Rutgers to get some first downs in the fourth quarter.

              If this was a boxing match the refs would've jumped in and stopped in the second quarter.

              • By the way did I see correctly that Michigan had 630 total yards to 30?? When has there been a total yardage disparity that wide? I mean that's a gulf as big as the grand canyon.
                AAL: Eric Ebron


                • Rutgers might've broke a record for back-to-back weeks of futility but in terms of college football history I don't think M did anything historic to Rutgers. Only allowing 1 first down is really impressive regardless of opponent.


                  • The thing that I can't wrap my brain around is that M won 78-0 but we only three for 118 yards. That's bananas.
                    F#*K OHIO!!!


                    • i'll do a mea culpa and apology to talent ... Rutgers is that awful.

                      Was watching with friends visiting from out of town who made me turn the game off.

                      Did JH run up the score or did Rutgers quit? Will watch the whole game tomorrow.


                      • I don't think either...Rutgers is just terrible.

                          What drok said, but it's also an away game meaning M had a limited roster to run into the game...if it were at home they could have played walk-ons and hot dog vendors...and scored less fast.

                          Though, I think OSU's final drive lasted 9 minutes against that "team." They were trying to snap the ball at 1 on the play clock every play. That's the only possible way they could have tried to lessen the score without overtly not trying.

                          Brady Hoke: You know.....not....good.


                          • No, Michigan didn't try to run up the score.
                            The last pass play by Michigan came to end the 3rd quarter. It was nearly a pick 6, but the ball hit the ground. Lucky Shane Morris.
                            Michigan called all run plays in the 4th quarter. Even Bobby Henderson (5th year senior FB) was a beast on the FB dives getting 26 yards on 3 carries.

                            Rutgers' talent is one of the worst, if not, among P5 teams. As a Purdue(/ Michigan) fan, I'd attest than Rutgers is worse than Purdue;;; Kansas nearly beat TCU and Oregon State won. That Illinois vs Rutgers game is going to tell you who the worst is.
                            Their coaching staff seems to be not good based on what Rutgers fans were saying on their forum. Very inexperienced. Yea you probably could tell just watching the game last night
                            Go Detroit Lions!


                            • We passed for 118 yards for the game. I'm not sure how anyone could accuse us of running up the score.

                                I was in the stands. Rutgers has huge talent problems on their OL and looked poorly coached. Fatigue played a roll. Evans and Higdon had huge runs with LBs and Ss either getting blocked out or getting sucked in with counters.

                                Massive mismatches everywhere.
