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.

  • Mo goes to the Lakers. He's got a bit of lalaland in him, I guess. Congrats, Mo.


    • Hell yes.


      • This could either be considered recruiting news (since he won't be able to play this season) or season news, as he will be allowed to practice and play on the scout team. Either way, Michigan got a preferred walk-on transfer yesterday in 6'10" big man Jaron Faulds. He played for Columbia University as a Freshman last year and was thought of by some to be the 6th best Senior in state, back in 2017. 247's composite had him #322 in the country. Hey, they had MAAR at #434 in 2014!

        He averaged 4.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1 block per game in 14.2 minutes. Against Villanova, he had 7 points on 3-4 shooting and against Penn State, he had 6 points (3-6 FG), 3 boards and a block. His best scoring game came against Albany, when he shot 8-10 from the floor for 17 points. He's a traditional big who didn't shoot a 3 the whole year. From the highlights I saw, he's all about the baby-hook in the paint. Think of a poor-man's Aron Baynes, prior to his 3-point shooting with Boston.

        A total no-risk, possible reward player.
