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.

  • Bush didn't sustain his level of play but was still pretty damn good and is a Butkus finalist.

    Comment


    • Agree, Bush, Long and Hudson are possible 3rd team types.

      Comment


      • They've already got 3 on defense alone with coaches.

        Comment


        • Bush, Hurst, Gary. Hill, Winovich 2nd team.

          Comment


          • It would be great if Winovich comes back next year.

            Comment


            • Hill was better than Bush.

              • Winnovich is going to check his draft status. If he's in the first or second round, he's gone and should be. If lower, he'll come back.

                Hurst was an outlier in coming back. But, It probably paid off. He's going to be a high first rounder now and that could mean millions long term and hundreds of thousands in signing bonuses. Wiinovich will look at that too.

                Flying back from Detroit to Chicago on Monday, I sat next to David Long's big brother. Discovered that when he sat down and opened a blue binder with a big block M on it to a page that was titled "David Long's Plan." Yeah, I was snooping. We didn't have any delving convos, I remarked it was a tough loss to osu and to take care of little brother. He played a great game v osu and was a great player. No one seems to want to throw in the direction of Lavert or David. His brother was a pretty big guy. He played Basketball at Cal State.

                Another page was titled, "Negotiating in the NFL" and "Why Pro Athletes Go Broke."

                Point here is that top flight players and their people are looking closely at their pro careers, get good counseling from the U and are doing this kind of thing when they are Sophomores and after establishing themselves as scoutable by the pros. Long has clearly done that so, I assume he's working on his next steps like I'm sure Winnovich has done and is doing.

                • Sorry, I've been busy and wasn't really inspired to look at this.

                  I'll tally the results sometime soon.

                  As far as I can tell, Solomon didn't start vs. tOSU and USC, so he stayed at 3 starts.

                  • I'm back!

                    Instead of doing a spreadsheet, I'm going to quote each person's picks and tally up their score.
