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.

      I'd like to see a good huge blowout this weekend. it's our last chance and we haven't had one yet. If we don't, then this will be our first season without a 30+ point win since 2008.

            Advanced Stats (link below) portends a 10.4 point win margin for M at Maryland.

            Not a clean seep in all the metrics but close.

            Michigan should have great success running the ball but if ever you'd want a game where Peters can spread his wings and throw the ball this is it. Maryland's pass rush is well below average which, if M's OL can stand up well, gives Peters an opportunity to survey the field and connect with his receivers. The implication is that "it will be on tape" and future opponents will have to respect the downfield passing threat in scheming Michigan defensively.

            On defense, Maryland holds an overall advantage in explosiveness (their offense is good at explosive plays, M's D gives up explosive plays). We should expect that Maryland will get some of these type plays so don't throw bricks at the TV when this happens or be pissed off that Brown's boys couldn't pitch a shut-out. In the end, and the overall analytics support this, M will win comfortably.

                Nick Baumgardner reported on November 4th that Walker would be available to play against Minnesota. He didn't play last Saturday and nothing has been reported about his status since then.

                I suspect he's available but if he's got that sort of nagging ankle injury, there's no need to play him. If he plays, he's going to be #4 on the depth chart behind Higdon, Isaac (if he's ok)/Evans. Omary Samuels is more likely to get some snaps if M gets a big lead unless Walker is truly healed and has been practicing.

                  Onwenu and Isaac probably won't play per IMG radio injury report. Crawford is not on the field.

                  Both Maryland QBs (the schlager guy and the guy from AF) both warmed up.

                    Maryland DB looked like a Sparty with that pass defense.

                      Again, back to back plays with no pass interference. That time Grant Perry the receiver. Don't call it, they'll continue to do it.

                        Two potential PI calls missed.
                        I honestly prefer football played this way... just means they better officiate like that both ways. No bullshit PI call vs David Long this next drive.

                          Those PIs were obvious. I prefer they be called.

                            They won't officiate it that way both ways. I guarantee you we'll get totally fucked like we always do. They won't call holding on the Maryland OL either.

                            I didn't have a huge issue with the no-call on Grant Perry but the missed one on DPJ was awful. TBF it was a horrible throw too though. Can't miss that one.

                            Onwenu out again today.

                              Can't tackle the receiver before he touches the ball when they are that far open.

                                I wonder why Khalid Hill has almost completely disappeared as the goal line/short yardage guy this year. Dude was money last year.

                                Nice plunge by Poggi for the TD there though.
