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.

  • U of M MEN'S BASKETBALL: 2018-2019

    It's been a week since the end of the season, so it's time to look forward to next season.

    Go Blue!

    We'll have big expectations. And maybe the highest preseason ranking since the Fab Five era? Hopefully, the team chemistry does not suffer from the abundance of talent and experience at each position.

      I'm not sure if this belongs here or in the recruiting thread, since he wasn't on full-scholarship, but Brent Hibbitts is transfering. He graduated in 3 years and still has 2 years of eligibility left to play somewhere. He scored 12 total points (in 37 minutes) in his 2 years at U of M.

      I wish him well.

      I guess that does open a spot for another preferred walk-on.

        They will not be ranked in the top 10 if Wagner leaves. If he stays.... maybe.

          If Mo stays looking a possible national champs contender. That being said even if Mo stays UM is losing a couple big pieces in MAAR and Robinson. Lots of leadership and shot making lost with those two.
          2012 Detroit Lions Draft: 1) Cordy Glenn G , 2) Brandon Taylor S, 3) Sean Spence olb, 4) Joe Adams WR/KR, 5) Matt McCants OT, 7a) B.J. Coleman QB 7b) Kewshan Martin WR

            If Mo stays it's a top-3 team. If he goes it's top 10-15, depending on how much respect they are given.

              This kid will be a solid piece for a mid major. Always thought he'd be a contributor here if he chose to stay.

                This guy will be a beast within 2 years. Granted, most the competition in this reel sucks, but almost all his best skills will translate to the next level.

                  Preseason top 10 if Mo stays.

                  Ibi transferring. 2018-2019 scholarship number perfectly at 13 for now.
                  Go Detroit Lions!

                      Finished his time at Michigan with 3 more career Sweet 16 points than miles bridges and jaren Jackson combined.

                        Shame. Thought he had a chance to stick here with some hard work. Hopefully that’s a good sign for the rest of the program.

                          Do we still need one spot to free up?

                            Only if we want that grad-transfer.

                              Even though he's a stick and the competition is weak, I agree that you can see that he's got a handle, post-moves, a nice shot, and athletic ability that is above, say a Donnal or Teske (even though he's ranked on par with those guys). It's too much to compare him to Wagner at that age, but that's kind of what I'm seeing. Especially if Moe goes, there's no way this kid is redshirting. He looks like he already has more to offer (shot-blocking alone) than Davis has shown. Get him to Camp Sanderson ASAP and see if he can put on 10-15 pounds of muscle before November.
