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.

    If Maryland can ring up 400 yards I'm hoping for at least 300. I can see some of our speedy guys can get some edge plays.

      Just so you can be a little uneasy, or maybe a littel bit more aware, about this game, Brian just did an Illinois Preview that reiterates pretty much what I said based on Ace's take on the game.

      Illinois has some dudes on D and those guys are up front where M has some weaknesses like JBB at LT. So, they're going to make some plays and fans will be uneasy. In order to make-up for overall not good on the back end, they'll bring all sorts of pressure - stunts, blitzes, what have you.

      Illinois will also give up some big chunk plays to M. As Brian said, they'll have some TFLs but also some big run, big pass, big TD 3 play scoring series for M doing that. As long as M has more of those than Illinois has TFLs, M is going to roll. I think they will but its not going to happen right off the bat like the uninformed expect it will.

      Think about the Colorado game in the early going. It won't look at all like that but it might have some of the same feel trying to get score separation.

        IIRC, Michigan kind of had their way with Ole Jeffy when they played against him.

          Since they had two weeks to prepare for the Illini's D' I expect a few wrinkles and Jimmy will work on The passing game in general. I think a balance of 250 running and passing will satisfy Harbaugh.

          Its a great feeling knowing the other teams offense will be stymied and your team can do what you want on offense and still win comfortably.

              Carroll Phillips is another Illinois front 7 player that is decent. He plays the LEO position and has been disruptive in the Illinois games I've seen.
              Perhaps that is due to Smoot getting all the attention. Yea I'm interested to see if we get Dewuane Smoot vs JBB... though it's not going to matter after a while when Michigan is up 5 scores.
              Go Detroit Lions!

                Don't care about the score. Hope for no injuries, then focus on payback next week.
                I'll let you ban hate speech when you let me define hate speech.

                  45-10. Illini has some talent on defense that could slow us down but their offense won't do much of anything.

                    If M doesn't win by 50 I'll be disappointed.

                        Kareem Walker is.

                          That opening drive was as blatantly disrespectful as I've ever seen. I'm half surprised we didn't see a fumblerooski.

                            TD, Assman; nice

                              Nice to see the offense starting fast for a change. That would be a nice habit for them to develop from now on.

                              7-0, good guys.
