FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

These guys get treated pretty well. I know a guy from high school who ended up playing at MSU and then went on to play in Europe. They get paid 80-100K and it is untaxed. That is a pretty good chunk of money. On top of that the club usually provides and apartment and a car and food.
So while it certainly isn't NBA money, and I guess it depends on your definition of "being paid handsomely", $100,000 untaxed with living expenses covered on top of it is doing pretty well.

That money only went to the Boys and Girls Club AFTER all the backlash that Lebron received for The Decision. That money was never originally intended for the BGC until Lebron and his people had a PR disaster and had to try to find a way to put out the flames.

I've been watching soccer my whole life. Just because they do the games doesn't mean they are amazing. Ian Darke is awesome but Twellman sucks I don't care how many games of the U.S. he has done. I would take Mcmanaman 100 times out of 100 over Twellman.

I don't understand how ESPN keeps allowing themselves to be outbid for all this soccer coverage. Lost the EPL and Champions League and now the World Cup. It took ESPN forever to figure out how to cover soccer in a way that didn't make fans want to jam knives in their ears (with the exception of forcing Lalas and Twellman on us for US games) and they just lost the contracts after all that.

I don't know how you can say this. They maybe didn't look dominating but they were definitely impressive. Chile is a very good team who was playing very well in the tournament and brazil had twice as many shots, 3 times as many shots on goal and the possession was fairly close.
I'd liken this game to our game against Kentucky in the Elite 8, both teams played very well and a fluke shot ended it for one team while the other advanced. Both teams played well and it could be argued that either one deserved the victory.

Results was really what I meant. And I should clarify that I mean mediocre in comparison to their history and their peers (Brazil, Germany, etc.)

I realize this was 30 years ago now but Diego Maradona single handely carried Argentina to the 86 world cup title and to the final in Italia 90. Until Messi came along Argentina was very much a mediocre team. So really between Maradona and Messi they have always been a one man show when successful.

To be fair to the Algerians, the greatest French player of all time (and in my opinion a top 10 player of all time), Zinedine Zidane, was of Algerian descent and considered an Algerian citizen. Though he was born in France so not quite the same thing.
