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.

          • A top team in the country shot 12-21 from 3, Wagner committed 2 fouls and was called for 4, and they still needed a whole metric shit-ton of luck to get past Michigan. It's going to be a really dangerous team come March, but probably saddled with a 7 seed or lower yet again.

            Next year has to be huge. It's a fucking must. Michigan has to fucking do some goddamn winning at some point.

            • Didn’t think there was conclusive evidence to say Matthews touched that ball last. Replay overturned it and that led to the foul on Mo.
              Tough way to lose, especially with @ MSU next.
              Go Detroit Lions!

              • If that was a foul on Mo then Mathis fouled Matthews, because that kinda swipe is typically called whether it's deserved or not. Just call it even, assholes.

                That said, this was a big-boy game and Michigan played very well. Good seasoning for Z and Livers. Especially Z. We lost about 5 possessions in the game to his development. Is what it is, but he learns.

                And, refs are fucking refs. We know what they respond to, and that's attacking the basket. Do that and you'll get more fouls than you deserve. Shoulda drove right at Haas more. Put fouls on the guy.

                • Just FUCK YOU a million times fucking hard with something as fucking rusty as fucking possible.

                  FUCK YOU, REFS. FUCK YOU.
                  For the first time in 2018, I agree with hack, FUCK YOU REFS, FUCK YOU

                  • Michigan is going to lose a lot of games like this because Matthews and Simpson are sub-60% free-throw shooters.

                      I would consider a 7 seed to be a pretty big success this year. Unless we are going to lose Charles Matthews, which makes this more of a "win now" situation. Actually given the circumstances I would consider a 7 seed to be a success regardless.

                      • Love that Robinson is getting less playing time over the last several games. That can happen when he isn’t playing well + Livers/ Poole have been great off the bench.
                        30+ minutes per game from the beginning of the season to the UCLA game.
                        17 min per for the last three games... B10* games.

                        We finally got our early season wish!
                        Go Detroit Lions!

                        • Yes. All the things that needed to happen are happening. Beilein needs to make that Robinson/Livers switch very soon. Maybe not give Livers his first start @ Breslin -- let him watch for five minutes first -- but certainly from that point on.

                            To be fair, the recap was much better than this preview, IMO. They do do a good job with the recap.

                              Seems like Matthews did just what you referred to at the bottom but no call.

                              Tuesday's result was a pisser but you have to feel pretty good about the direction we're heading. Let's hope Michigan and spartie play Saturday like they both have in the past week or so. If that's the case, we can get a W in EL.

                              • I need to refine that. The calls are going to go to the team that does it first, sort of. I don't have numbers on that, but it seems to me like if you put a few fouls on the other team in the first ten minutes through penetration, you've established something in the minds of refs. JMO.
