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 would like to ask -- how horrifically bad is the ACC?

    • The #2 team in the ACC might be the #7 team in the B1G or SEC.

      • Yeah. They are Clemson and nobody. Mack may have the Tarheels as the second best team.

        • You can go from the bottom to #2 so easily in ACC or PAC 12.

          Comment


          • Yep.

            Currently ranked opponents left on the regular season schedule:


            Ohio State 5

            Georgia 4

            LSU 4

            Notre Dame 4

            Alabama 3

            Utah 3

            Oklahoma 1

            Clemson 0

            ACC = woof

            • No one will write about how terrible Clemson's schedule is. But, if they lose a game they should be out. Period. But, the "eye test."

              Ohio State probably has at least 6 games left that are harder than anything left on Clemson's schedule. I would not count Maryland at home as one of those 6, but at Lincoln and at fucking Evanston on a Friday (WTF?) are pain in the ass games.

              The fact that no SEC team has more than 4 is really a commentary on how bad the bottom half of that league is (and, FWIW, I don't think Auburn is a top 10 team). LSU only gets to 4 because of their protected crossover. Georgia only gets there because of Notre Dame.

              Oklahoma? Jalen Hurts is going to put up numbers in the B12. Everyone will blow him. He will win the Heisman on numbers and "story." And he'll look like dogshit in the CFP when they finally play a decent defense.

              The big question right now, with the way the SEC has disintegrated at the bottom, is can they get 3? There's no doubt they're getting 2. But, if LSU only loses to Alabama, and Alabama and Georgia are undefeated in Atlanta, then it will be Clemson, Alabama, Georgia and LSU. 100%. And that SHOULD be the end of the CFP.

              • Auburn has 5. They were not included because the writer (Peter Burns) apparently looks at them as an also ran, too. He noted them in a follow up tweet.

                The bottom 6 of the SEC is as bad as its been since the late 1990s.

                We have 3 legit teams (Bama, LSU, and Georgia) with the next 2 in a near, but not quite there, orbit (Auburn and Florida).

                TAMU, Mizzou, and Miss State are decent, but not CFP convo good.

                Then SoCar and Kentucky which are just hoping for a decent bowl and maybe to upset a good team.

                Tenn, Candy, Ole Miss, and Arkie are hot garbage.

                • I think Auburn and Florida are overvalued and aTm is undervalued. I'd group those 3 together.

                  • I can see that. It’s certainly possible. We are at game 2 and I am probably valuing TAMU’s play vs Clemson too much as well as Auburn nipping Oregon and ...well, Florida gasn’t done anything of note.

                    • And to address your comment above, Talent, I think the SEC gets 1.

                      Really, I think it will be OU and Clemson and either OSU/Wisky/M from the BigTen and either Geogia/Bama/LSU from the SEC with the PAC-12 left out.

                      • Also, after the Duke win, Coach Saban passed Hayden Fry in career wins.

                        He now sits tied with Bo Schembechler. He needs 5 wins to pass Woody Hayes.

                        Next year he should pass Lou Holtz and Tom Osborne.

                          Osborne is 2-0 against The Nick. 50-10 and 55-14.

                          So suck it Bammer.

                          Yes...I said Bammer.
