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.

    Did they fake a punt this time? No?

    What's that, you're out of weak strawman arguments?

    Ok then.

    • Did Harbaugh fake the punt because he wanted the first down (no) or did he do it so opposing punt return units have that to defend to?

        O'korn lacks game experience. He throws a nice ball, but yeah his decision-making is WAY behind Speight. Speight just looks like crap throwing the ball ... my worry is that these out-cuts that he is throwing with little velocity will be easy pick-6's for athletic secondaries like the Bucks.

          No i was just fucking around. I know you're incapable, but just don't be a douchebag, something I'm not sure if you're capable.

            I suspect he was faking in order to practice faking it... he is a believer in giving the opponent as much tape as possible.

              It's weird, I think that's something he still might be learning. He can really fire it when he wants to, but you're right...he does float some too many times. Almost like he's aiming it instead of throwing it.

              • Harbaugh = Monster

                Someone commented in another thread they go to other forums from time to time to stir the pot with opposing views. This is a classic case of "stirring the pot". I bet kstat is a Michigan State fan.

                  • Besides Harbaugh being a dick, and I'm fine with that in the game of football, it's really hard to find a lot wrong with this performance.

                    I like the OL set up with Braden out there at LT and Bradenson stepping up as LG. Illinois has a couple of NFL caliber guys on the DL with known weakness at LB but they showed flashes and even at that, M rushed for something around 300 yards ..... pretty much what everyone called for to ward off disappointment.

                    Speight was solid. That was a key for many watching for improvement in this game.

                    I thought the D gave up the usual number of big plays and that would be maybe 4 if I have my count right. That's going to be Don Brown's MO but I saw a post at half time by an ESPN staff writer where he pointed out that over some ridiculous number of quarters, Michigan's total yards was 800 to the combined opponents 50. 50! That is phenomenal and I don't care how bad the competition is. So, I'm going to relax when those happen.

                    M fans may not like the kind of sabre slashes Harbaugh delivers to his opponents..... time outs with huge leads, going for it on forth down, fake punts, 2 point conversions with big leads, challenging ball placement with 2 minutes left. He's competitive. He leads with that attitude and it rubs off on all his players including the ones on the three deep. He's brought pride and toughness back to M football.

                    It feels to me like the M football we used to know when M just dominated non-con and conference play all of it leading up to The Game at the end of the season for the conference title.

                    I really like that.
                    On Harbaugh's expectations for M football in 2015 (NFL NETWORK): We'd rather be about it than talk about it."

                      • All for making the opponent stop you, but there's a fine line between playing out the game and embarrassing an overmatched opponent. The latter usually comes back to bite you in the ass, as it did today. This goes back to the days of Woody Hayes and Bo.

                        • It bit them badly, they only won 41-8. smh!

                          • I seriously doubt that Harbaugh was being a dick with that fake punt. He always has a reason for the stuff he does, and I'm sure he has no problem with Lovie Smith. Team looked like it pretty much lost interest after it was 28-0. Speight looked okay today. He took some hard shots. The season has just been a little too easy so far to get an accurate gauge on this team, but it's been fun so far. Next week is all I care about right now.
                            I'll let you ban hate speech when you let me define hate speech.

                            • LOL, Harbaugh's new glasses are a tip of the cap to Woody Hayes, Michael Douglas in Falling Down and Malcolm X.
