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.

        This has been a great season for M football and M will most likely and deservedly go to a NY6 Bowl. There are a few scenarios, none likely, that M could end up in the CFP.

        Think back to August when we got serious about talking wins and losses for the 2015 season. Most felt 10-2 was the goal, 11-1 the realistic season although 8-4 and 12-0 was offered by those on the margins.

        So here we are, the regular season ended and M went 1-1 v. its biggest rivals, MSU and osu, stumbling at Iowa (the one place I thought M would lose one of their games) and losing a close one to osu in c-bus (the other game I thought M would lose). M football got to wear I thought it would get and I'm sure others are in that camp too.

        Notably M can know that under HARBAUGH!!! they are capable of playing and winning with anyone. That's not going to change. I'm not in the camp that, given this loss to osu, M is relegated to second fiddle in the BT. It's one game, shit happens (and it did), the next season will have a different feel to it than this one, the next game will be different and the next and so on but one thing is certain, M will win ........

        I don't think there is a single team that M will play in a NY6 Bowel that M can't beat. Not one. This post season other teams and fans will be looking for ways to avoid the best 10-2 team in CFB and probably the best team in CFB left out of the CFP. It won't be our team either missing a bowel or having it's fans looking to get a better (easier) match-up. Michigan football is back.

            You are way more optimistic than me Jeff. Setting aside preseason predictions, UM was 9-0 going to Iowa, and controlled its destiny regarding the BT title game and CFP. UM made mistakes and cost themselves the above and cost themselves a victory against OSU. So I don't take much solace in being a tough 2 loss team.

            As for next season, I'm not optimistic. Lots of starters to replace and a tough schedule.

              I expected 11-1. This is bullshit.

                    ....... expected 11-1, didn't get it and that you didn't is bullshit?

                    I know you're pissed about the osu loss as many here are but this is a little over the top, don't you think?

                    2 years ago, M was struggling to get bowl eligible. We have fans here from other programs who attest to the fact that this is a top 4 football team.

                    We can't do anything about the loss to osu, nor, IMO, talk further about The Game beyond what has already been said about it.

                    What we can do productively, sharing rational view points, is talk about what is going to happen going forward.

                      Methinks hack was being sarcastic.

                      Either that or was channeling his inner Hannibal.

                        Ok Jeff. So what are your views about what is going to happen with UM football going forward?

                          Hannibal is spot-on when he says "if not now, when?"

                            Championships are hard to win.

                            I think being in the hunt for a conference championship and a birth in the playoff is really all that you can hope for. It that is the case every year, you are a very successful program, IMO..

                            So really, now happened this year. We'll see if M can sustain it.

                              Needed to beat OSU this year. I'm not blaming Harbaugh or expecting him to be perfect or looking for any scapegoats. There are none of be found in Ann Arbor, an the future is very bright. I'm just sick of this. How many ways do we have to lose to them before this changes?
