well that's just, like, your opinion, man
USA vs Russia in Krasnodar
Very happy to see Josh Gatt get his first cap, though through 6 minutes he looks overwhelmed by first-team play. Mix Diskerud could also come off the bench, which I would love to see.
In other news, Timmy Chandler suits up again for the US... surprise surprise, it's another non-cap-tying game. but on the plus side, Klinsman is playing him in his natural position!
On the NCAA Men's Soccer selection show earlier, Michigan (10-9-1) makes the tournament.
They will host niagara out of the MAAC on 11/15 at 7pm. If Michigan wins, they will face a very familiar team in 5 seed akron (17-1-2). Michigan played the zips, a soccer powerhouse, back on October 16th and came up short 1-0 against #3 at the time.
akron is also the team that ended Michigan's dream season in 2010 in the College Cup (NCAA Semifinals). However last season, Michigan upset akron 1-0 in OT at home. Despite the rankings and the fact Michigan has always been the underdog, these games are mostly tight contests.
Got to take care of niagara first though. Pretty remarkable Coach Daley has taken a 5-14-1 team from a year ago led them to a 3rd place finish in the B1G, wins over both rivals, a near B1G Tournament Championship and an NCAA Tournament bid. This is only a sign of great things to come, IMO.
Michigan is in it's second B1G Tournament Championship game in three years. Michigan upset conference co-champion and number 2 seed northwestern on the home field, 3-0 on Friday. state upset conference co-champion and number 1 seed penn state 3-1 on Friday.
3 Michigan vs 5 state for the B1G Tournament Championship. Michigan ruined state's chance at the outright B1G Championship on the final day of the regular season, beating state at home 1-0 for the Bear.
The Big Bear trophy is not up for grabs in postseason games. Instead, a more important trophy is on the line. Let's hope Michigan takes that one home this year as well.
Game begins at 1pm and will be live on BTN.
Hey, I just wanted to put out here that Blood Batle is currently going on and need your help.
For those of you who don't know, Blood Battle is a huge blood drive competiton that uses the rivarly between U of M and OSU to motivate people to donate blood!
We have won the past 3 or 4 times, but It's not about who wins, it's about saving lives. And by donating blood, you can save 3.
If you're interested in donating, you can schedule an appointment online at redcrossblood.org (blood drives are on campus). From there, click on the box that says "enter a sponsor code" in the area that says "find a blood drive near you," and use the code, "goblue". You can also try to walk in and donate, but the wait will be much longer. I really encourage you to schedule an appointment online if you are interested in donating.
The entire Blood Battle committee, especially the chairs, work very hard to make this event a success and It would be great if we can help get them a win for their efforts. For more information, please refer to their facebook page.
Remember, wolverines bleed for those in need!

Never understood the hire to begin with. Who now? Phil Jackson? It actually would not surprise me.
The Michigan Men's Soccer team just got revenge over the badgers winning in evanston by a final of 1-0. They have to be at least .500 to get an NCAA Tournament bid. The current record right now stands at 9-8-1. This most likely will lock up the bid due to Michigan's tough schedule they played this year under first year coach Daley.
A great win and hopefully Michigan can get the auto bid by winning the B1G Tournament and not worry about an at-large.
Michigan will play the winner of the game between 2 northwestern and 7 ohio kicking off right now.
