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.

    There was initially an erroneous report that U-M was an 8.5-point dog. Made zero sense.

              Little schools, Dude. Teams that no matter how good they may be, will never see a shot at the Championship or a New Years Six Bowl.

              The teams from the Sunbelt, Conference USA, MAC etc etc are excited over their games.

              Part of the reason the South Alabama coach stepped down? No bowl game

              These lesser bowls are important to the economies of the host cities, too.

              Nothing wrong with them.
              Glad everyone (or 70% of the field) can get their reward for participating in the postseason.

              Purdue was an 8 win team that year as their popularity was competent. Deserving of a bowl invite.

                Are you a fun governor? I don't get your schtick. You go to Purdue and constantly downgrade their football program. Going to a bowl game helps their program. If you don't care, don't watch.

                    Not really, everything is coming up Milhouse. I don't get the too many bowls brigade though.

                      If they have 7 wins+ ? Sure, that’s a winning season.
                      Now when you get into the 5-7 or 6-6 territory... don’t deserve a postseason reward.
                      There is no satisfaction in being that bad and patted on the back for it. Let’s hang more “Playoff Appearance” banners at Ford Field, folks.

                      Michigan goes to the Outback Bowl
                      Purdue goes to the Captain Crunch Dilly Dilly Bowl. How great that both teams basically get rewarded the same thing.
                      Bowl games...

                        Yeah it's better for the program in the future to wear the hairshirt and stay home.

                            I don't get that either. Bowl games are immensely important on several levels.

                            I don't care if an 0-12 team gets an invite given the amount of work players put in during a season and that includes spring and fall camps. The kids get to go somewhere they've probably never been to and have fun for a week on somebody else's dime.

                            The bowls are a big deal for the local communities where they are held. An economic shot in the arm for them.

                            Bowl practices and another game to work on techniques.

                              All true Jeff, but some of us remember a time when it was hard to get into one of a handful of bowls game, which made it more of an achievement.

                                Yeah, there was also a time when you got to play on TV only 3 times a year.
