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.

  • MSU @ Michigan 10/7/17, 7:30 ET. ABC/ESPN/ESPNGo

    People I know think this is going to be a night game. There are four BIG games that remain TBA with respect to broadcast times (Illinois @ Indiana, Maryland @ osu, Minny @ Purdue, Wisky @ Neb). There's a slew of other games involving top 25 teams that are also not yet scheduled. So, we'll see.

    In any case, MSU is a bit better than last year but not much. MSU fans looking for a silver lining in the home beat down they just received from a not great ND team are saying but, but ....... "we out gained ND." OK.

    The defense is aggressive and gets penetration up front but middling to not good behind that. Lewerke has potential, I guess. That's the hot takes. I've watched smatterings of every game MSU has played. Both teams, I mean M and MSU, have exploitable weaknesses. I think M has less of them than MSU. So, take that for what it's worth.

    Michigan's Oct. 7 home game against rival Michigan State will kick at 7:30 p.m. and be televised on ABC.

      I never thought I would say this, but what a relief that it's on a Disney network and not Fox.

      Because the Fox Toledo affiliate got dropped from my DirecTV package. Shucks, I guess I'm just not paying enough for it.

        CBS is off DTV in Columbus. That means no SEC game nor most Browns/Bengals NFL games. So, you know, small loss/big win.

        Usually it's resolved quickly, but it's been several weeks now. Oh well. It's off topic, but, meh, you have a bye week. So, everything is on topic?

          Toldeo is going to burn like Ferguson, MO if the Buckeyes have another game on Fox before that network is back.

            Oh, they didn't go off before OU? That would have been ballsy. OSU-M is on FOX, I think. I hope the network is still off DTV. A smoldering Toledo can only help the State.

              They went off at midnight Friday night/Saturday morning. I hadn't heard that it was potentially coming.

              I'm inching ever closer to dropping DirecTV, although I'm not sure if there is a package that will allow me to get all of the sports channels that I will need. From what little research that I have done about "cutting the cord", it seems like it's still only a viable solution for people who don't care whether they can watch live sports.

                I'm starting to hate DTV.

                  I don't think that it's a coincidence that it coincides with AT&T's ownership. They apparently got tired of getting their ass kicked by satellite so they decided to buy a company.

                    I almost wish I was a millenial cord-cutter. DTV is so not worth it, but, sports. That, and douche beards and cuffed skinny jeans will soon find their places in the pantheon of atrocities next to perms, leg warmers and string head bands.

                      I keep DTV for the same reason. Sunday Ticket mostly. If I didn't have DTV, I would have to pay to use the sports channel apps that I use on my tablet or firestick. By the time I got everything that I would want to have, I would probably be paying the same price as I do now, have less convenience and no Sunday Ticket.

                        Get an antenna and a cheap sling subscription then put a $59 Roku box on each TV. Screw the old cable/satellite monopoly.

                          I can't get anything with rabbit ears where I live. I would need to get a big old style antenna installed on top of my house. If you are a big Michigan fan then you need BTN, Fox, and all of the Disney stuff, at a minimum too.

                          The fundamental economic problem at work is that sports leagues have figured out that we're junkies who will pay pretty much anything for a fix. They'll probably always find a way to fleece us, but the generations that follow us won't be as willing.

                            With Roku, don't you still have to pay for the subscriptions?

                            If so, that could add up in hurry.

                              You have to pay like $30/month for Sling that includes ESPN. You get your locals in crystal clear high def with an antenna and a networked tuner. Still need to buy your data from the monopoly though.
