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.

  • #1 Alabama @ #9 Tennessee, 3:30p, CBS; #2 osu @ #8 Wisconsin, 8p, ABC

    With M idle, thought I'd create a thread for two games that M fans will have great interest in.

    My take is that both Alabama and osu will win. Bama wins something like 35-20. osu will win in a low scoring, close game. jtb is the difference. I'll go with 24-17.

    A little history on what used to be one of the biggest rivalries in college football...

      Bama has issues in the secondary. We play bump-and-run man 85% of the time. An accurate QB gives us fits as our CBs bite on double moves from the speedier WRs a bit too much for my liking.

      The offense has two true frosh starting: at QB and G. We have flashes, but way too much bogging down.

      Throw in a hostile Neyland crowd and we could easily lose. I'm an eternal optimist, so I will say 34-33, good guys.

      Ohio State wins by 14-18 points or more. 28-10 sounds about right.

          Bama by 3 TD's sounds correct. Tenn won't have the comeback magic this week.

                I don't think Wisconsin can do much of anything on offense against Ohio State. Unless their defense and special teams manage to give them a bunch of short fields, Wisconsin can't stay in this one.

                Ohio State 24, Wisconsin 6.

                I think this Alabama team is going to drop one, but I think Tennessee's a little too erratic and banged up to pull this one off. It wouldn't surprise me if this one's close all the way, though.

                Alabama 31, Tennessee 20.

                  I wouldn't say this is thread or sticky-worthy.

                    neither contact will be close.

                      Yeah, I think both favored teams will roll. Maybe the home field helps keep Wisky in it for a half.

                        OSU's offense is finicky. Their defense will win the game for them but wisconsin's defense can keep it very close if they keep forcing turnovers.

                            I guess it doesn't feel like one of those games that could be close enough to be determined by 2/3 key plays. I think Wisconsin may be overrated a fair bit. That defense did tighten up on us in the second half, but in the first half Michigan really took it to them. On the first TD drive the just won every single play at the LOS. That was an 80-yard drive in which they never had a third down.

                              I think Wisconsin is going to give oiho some fits. Their bye week couldn't have come at a better time to regroup after the loss in AA in which they played admirably. Their defense will give oiho problems and its in Madison. Its going to be a good game.

                              I think Alabama will handle Tennessee fairly easy especially if they get down early like they normally do. Speaking of which I don't think I can ever recall a team like Tennessee having to mount all these comebacks. I'd have a heartattack.
