I work at a K-8 school that feeds into Rogers so this is pretty cool for me. Hope to make a few of her games the next few years.

I get that we need help, but if he doesn't want to play for us, why would we want him?
And part of the reason we fell so fast is because we had high earners coasting through the last two seasons. I'm somewhat excited about the future because I think we've now got a manager that will bring some pride back to Molineux and make the players earn the shirt. We'll see though.

I don't think he ever really considered the US his home. Parents from Italy, lots of family back there I'm sure, grew up in an Italian household and probably had alot of Italian traditions growing up so I doubt he really ever held a sense of an American identity. And he moved to Italy when he was 12, and 12-18 are some pretty formative years in anyone's life. I applaud his decision if he truly felt Italy was his home (which I believe he did).

Don't get the hate for Rossi. Guy followed his dream and played in Italy. It's not like he told everyone he wanted to play for us and then bolted for Italy. He and his family never gave an indication they wanted him to play for the US. No beef with him

Jozy with another great effort. Glad to see we're not sitting back but are staying with the agressive play we've see for the last 10-12 minutes

Wow. What a clusterfuck and no goal

A few positive moments, but overall pretty disappointed with our effort tonight. Waiting for some subs. Hoping Cameron comes on for Jones, who has had a bad game.

Fun team to watch. So glad the Calder Cup was free for viewing online.

Pistons are in a tough spot. The only guys most likely available when we pick and who have stock around the 7-10 range are
post players - which we seem set on in terms of starters
McCollum - who is a tweener combo guard (much like Brandon Knight IMO)
MCW - tall PG, but absolutely no jumper, which is something we need on the perimeter
I think if Burke is there you have to take him. But it does present a problem because he's only 6'0". That will leave our backcourt very small. It will make it imperative to get a big SG somewhere down the road. Knight is a combo guard off the bench in the future IMO. And there's nothing wrong with that. But he is not going to be able to guard the strong guards in the league. I think Zeller will be an okay player in the league. He's only 20 or 21, so he's still got time to develop. And who knows if Monroe will leave after this next year as his contract is up IIRC.

Haha. Autocorrect victim. I know I meant to type "it's", but trying to figure out how I misspelled it to get it corrected to Otis.

You probably do have to try to fail. I took a tour of University of Toledo football facilities. The academic support was very thorough even there. I can't imagine what Otis like at a UofM or South Carolina or Oregon. Study tables, tutors, and other resources make it that the only way you fail is if you go through with an I diagnosed learning disability or you are just lazy.

I think it'll be a flop....mostly because the Nets just aren't that good IMO

Been a lot of fun to watch. Lets hope they close it out at Van Andel this weekend

Basketball is a sport much more enjoyable in smaller venues IMO. I enjoy high school games more than pro ones.

Children of Hurin should be made into a movie. I was a little disappointed in the first installment but now that my expectations are a little lower I'm sure the second and third parts will be fine
|1 week 2 days ago||I don't think that'll be a||
I don't think that'll be a big problem now. We were still dependent on veterans at that time. Our best players and ones that aren't dispensable are young now. Most of the veterans on this team won't be there after the next season or two.
But I still agree overall that it's not an upgrade. No point to letting Frank go. Should have just given him the two years he wanted instead of hiring Cheeks. Really odd. Rather go with an unproven assistant.

Can MGoBlog get its own rating system for prospects? 1-10 on the Mattison Swag scale.
|1 week 2 days ago||Forgot to add that they have||
Forgot to add that they have criticism of every player, many of them significant, for all the players in this years draft. It's a weak one. Most years Trey wouldn't be picked tip 8-12. But this year he could go top 5
|1 week 2 days ago||It probably seems that way||
It probably seems that way because you are reading more things on Burke because you have a vested interest in him being from UM and because he is one of the more covered players with all his decorations on his mantle
|1 week 3 days ago||Wow. The guy knows what he is||
Wow. The guy knows what he is doing. Who would have thought that Indiana, N'W and PSU would be the only ones stepping up their recruiting outside of UM & OSU?

Mint julep while watching the U21 Euro Championship. Norway up 2-0 but waiting for my young Azzurri playing later

Alto does starting to pick up his play. That will be huge for us if he keeps his confidence up. We are gonna need goals with this defense.
|1 week 5 days ago||Interesting. I would have||
Interesting. I would have assumed he was gone regardless. Though I think it would have been a mistake for him to return as I believe he has gone as far as he can in college. It will be interesting to follow his career. Not a CF but doesn't have he power you typically see in a corner OF. But I think his steady approach and mentality will be an advantage he has over most other youngsters. I expect him to be a solid major leaguer.

Potential to be our best pitcher since Putnam. Though Evan HIll might have something to say about it.

Really wish I lived closer to GR for the $2 beer dogs. But I'll just have to settle for the Walleye I suppose.

Makes sense that the B1G is doing this. Less of a competitive disparity since indoor facilities for lax are alot easier to come by to practice all year round. We'll always be at a disadvantage for baseball.

After further research, you are correct. I had thought Disney took their logo and name with them when they left.
|1 week 6 days ago||They're only the Ducks now as||
They're only the Ducks now as Disney owned the rights to the "Mighty Ducks" and the duck goalie mask logo IIRC. But they don't own the franchise anymore so we most likely won't see those
