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.

      Ohio State is off the board. But for anything else, sure - up until 10am Saturday. Just quote your original wager with the new stuff.

        I figured everyone would be doing it with Florida suspending 10.

                  Colorado returned like 3 starters on defense and held CSU to 3 points.

                  Gary Andersen's crew gave up 58. But hey, at least academic standards aren't preventing him from acquiring top-notch talent now.

                      Congrats to Ghengis. Fortune does favor the bold. Congrats to hack for the adjustment, too. Please double check my math. I will make a mistake.

                            Nah, you're in striking range. I have hosted a variant of this contest in real life for real dollars and you're good.

                            The fact that only two lost nominal amounts is kind of impressive.

                              Admin note: remember to get your picks in for week 2 before the deadline to avoid being autopicked.

                                ACC: Clemson -6.5 vs Auburn .... $500
                                B12: Oklahoma +6.5 vs Ohio State .... $500
                                P12: USC + 6.5 vs Stanford .....$500

                                AA, I think we're allowed to bet the dog to win v. the spread like I did with USC, right?
