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.

  • Michigan @ Rutgers Post Game Discussion

    I'm not entirely sure the game time has actually been set for this game but the 7p start, as opposed to 8p, seems to be the most current info. So is ESPN2 but that might change too.

    This should be a cakewalk. I'm thinking Rutgers is on par with UCF. Since it's Michigan's first road game, maybe that's a 7-point swing. I don't predict scores but we should win pretty damn comfortably. Hopefully, they'll get some FG-practice in during the 2nd half.

      Rutgers is awful, they were banged up a couple weeks ago with injuries. Game should look like the Penn State game where result is never in doubt. Expect a point spread of ~40 points. 48-7...

                  Rutgers is tough at home. UM better not overlook them. And you can forget about their last game. They were steamrolled by the a far better team. I expect a lot closer game than everyone expects. 31-10.

                    Agree, it will be closer.
                    1. We're not as good as O-state
                    2. The style of offense we play sucks time off the clock meaning fewer plays/possessions and scoring opportunities
                    3. Rutgers will be especially pumped as Ash has been building this story that big bad M has been coming and stealing NJ talent which should be staying at home.
                    4. We're coming off a big game -- natural to have a let down + we took some bruises
                    5. First road test as a starter for Speight

                      Having two bye weeks in a row is going to be rough on this group.

                      We play Ohio state this season. They're on our schedule. Therefore I really do not give a shit if we beat Rutgers by 58 points or not. We'll be judged against Ohio state based on how we play against Ohio state.

                        Yeah you're right. Up until Wisky we were only averaging more than 50 a game

                          We had a ton of defensive/ST scores.

                            One pick six. one punt return, one block punt returned. 21 points-same amount we failed to score against Wisky

                              And a lot more that got them in or near the Red zone. The offense isn't there yet talent-wise. They don't have the game breakers aside from jake butt and he's a tight end.
