And JB guarded the inbounds. Thank goodness.

Don't like taking a timeout there. Let's Texas off the hook for using theirs early

The talent is at the very least comparable to other eras in US soccer. Just need a plan and a coach that can get the talent to consistently execute.

Can't survive this now. Players gave up.

Gotta be the coaching. Knows what he's doing in Frankfurt. No clue for US. No confidence in role or responsibilities

Gulati already said he doesn't see somebody other than Klinsmann finishing the qualifying cycle. So I think we are stuck with him unless we lose the next qualifiers

Doubt it. Shouldn't have a problem finishing above T&T. And we only have to finish 4th in the Hex to qualify for a two leg playoff, which we'd most likely win. Honduras hasn't been that good under Pinto so I'm confident we can finish above them and we probably will finish above Panama.

That would be massive from a football standpoint. He's been one of our best DL all season. Would be a big boost for depth next season and ease pressure on true freshmen from contributing on the interior.

Toledo has lost to NIU 6 games in a row. Most of those cost Toledo a spot in the MAC title game. Could have an impact tonight as well because with their loss to Ohio last week, Toledo now can't afford to lose another game if they want to control their own destiny against Western Michigan.

There's a difference between saying there's a problem with the culture of Baylor's football team and saying that every player is a rapist. The former is certainly true. The latter is false.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||While nobody should be making||
While nobody should be making blanket statements about the Baylor football team, if they don't like being called rapists than they should probably not be trying to defend a coach that was not taking appropriate actions when confronted with rape allegations toward his players. Seems very counterproductive.

OSU loss to Nebraska would give us what Notre Dame's bye robbed of us a few weeks ago.

Just a money grab. Trying to get viewers for the Indianas and Rutgers of the conference. They might do better on a Friday night than when Mississippi St or someone like that is playing at the same time. Though I'm not too sure.

Social Studies curriculum sucks in most states. Most don't start getting into actual history until AP classes.

Yep. The basketball fanbase has some diehards but most of Michigan fanbase is fair-weather when it comes to basketball. When we're good, people are excited and care passionately. When we're not good, people don't care.

You're creating a straw man. He just said it's "one of the bigger problems".
Either way, just because some problems may be bigger than others doesn't mean we shouldn't also address the "smaller" problems.

Idk if it is a worse job. He's just as close to the same pools of talent. And he'd get a massive raise. And it's not like the B1G West is made up of juggernauts like UM and OSU. He could compete within the division within a couple seasons if he makes the right moves.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I thought they made an ok||
I thought they made an ok choice not to fire him last year because they would be competing with several other similar B1G schools. Maryland, Rutgers and Illinois were all looking for new coaches (and I believe that Minny hadn't made their interim permanent at the time that Hazell was confirmed to be back). Plus schools like Iowa St, Virginia Tech, Virginia, BYU etc. Would have been a tough market for them to compete in.

Gotta say I'm pretty happy with the start to this season. In terms of results at least. Would have been nice to sweep Union but they're a borderline top 25 team, so that loss isn't a huuuuge deal
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I would say it has dropped.||
I would say it has dropped. But not due to anything other than my interests expanding. I used to be focused on Michigan football and Tigers baseball all of the time. I didn't care for much else. Just those sports and Star Wars. Then I started reading more and watching some other sports. Now I have a much bigger interest in soccer and college hockey than I do Michigan football. I support the Detroit teams about equally, but I would say my biggest areas of fandom are now 1. Soccer (Wolves, USMNT, Roma, Italian national team) 2. Michigan hockey 3. Michigan basketball 4. Michigan football 5. Detroit pro teams
|9 weeks 2 days ago||I don't know if we really||
I don't know if we really want to nullify that pass to the flat. Our corners (and Peppers) are pretty good tacklers and probably the best DBs he has faced yet (though Wisconsin's secondary is pretty solid too). I think his strength matches up well with our strengths. I'm not worried about our defense vs anybody but OSU.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Caldwell. New front office||
Caldwell. New front office will want to put their own stamp on the organization. And he is terrible. Ausmus is probably just slightly below average IMO. And the Tigers had a bad season, but just missed the playoffs. Meanwhile, the Lions are going downhill and fast just like Caldwell with the Colts.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||This is what I was thinking.||
This is what I was thinking. It was supposed to be our third toughest game coming into the season and now it's looking like it should be a gimme. But Iowa still won the Big Ten West last year (and I know it's that impressive) and they have a veteran Qb and Kinnick is usually not an easy place to play. Our last 7 trips there (dating back to 1998) have resulted in only a 3-4 record. And the games have been decided by an average of 4 points (8 being the largest margin of victory by Iowa in 2011, the lowest being 2 in 2009 by Iowa). We haven't won there since 2005.
That said, if we didn't win by double digits, I'd be somewhat disappointed. They have not been able to stop the run and their offense isn't anything special.

Trinidad and Tobago up 2-1 on GUatemala with about 15 minutes left. If that result holds, the US is through to the Hex with a match to spare.
Joining us will be Mexico, T&T, and Costa Rica. Panama can clinch a spot tonight if they get at least a point against Jamaica. If Jamaica wins, they'll be even on points with Panama for second in that group and Panama would be playing Costa Rica on Tuesday while Jamaica would have Haiti. Honduras beat Canada 2-1 earlier tonight, so they should be in unless they lose to Mexico and Canada beats El Salvador and the -5 goal difference is made up.
So most likely scenario looks like: USA, Mexico, T&T, Costa Rica, Panama and Honduras. That's not a gimme Hex for the US or Mexico.
