I don't have a strong opinion on the NC law, but comparing it to the Jim Crow laws is laughable.

I'm not quite as down on them as you are, but I think the jumpman looks weird on Michigan's apparel, and the rest of it looks like the same stuff I've seen in the M-Den for the past zillion years, but with a swoosh.

We should give them Nebraska back, give RU and Maryland a nice severance, and tell PSU to GTFO. Expansion was a massive mistake.

Ash seems like a decent recruiter - he's actually landing a few of the top NJ recruits, unlike previous coaches. I'm glad Rutgers fans are getting excited about their football program, but they have such a long way to go before they have a true powerhouse football program, and many headwinds to get there. Pure fantasy.

I'll endorse Marco Polo too. Same style of show as Game of Thrones - lots of blood, sex and violence, with a kung fu element added as well.

Maybe they're changing the MSU or OSU game to a home game in even years starting in 2018? If not, then yeah, terrible.

I would argue that the Pistons have won 3 titles in the last 30 years without a true superstar. However, they are kinda the exception to the rule, and I don't see them becoming anything more than a good to very good team in the next few years.

He didn't give lions fans the middle finger, he gave it to the lions franchise. Which is completely understandable to lions fans.

I thought a lot of the "stab in the back" mindset was based on munitions workers strikes and antiwar revolutionaries, and not just the armistice.
If the German army collapses in 1919 and the allies march on Berlin, I'm not sure if that mythology goes away. The Hitler's of the world would still blame it on the jews and commies, undoubtedly.

The allies could've carved Germany up if they wanted to. They had armies on the east bank of the Rhine as conditions of the armistice - Germany was defenseless. They chose not to.
Again, completely defeating the French in 1871, and handing them a treaty on par with Versailles, did not soften French attitudes a bit. I'm not sure why the Germans would be different.
If your position is that Versailles was to soft, then that's another matter.

The Germans also likely would not have shot their wad in the spring offensive (1918) if they didn't have to contend with an endless supply of American soldiers.

I dunno. The French were suffering mass mutinies after the Neville offensive in 1917 and order was only brought when Petain promised no major offensives until the Americans arrived. Could the British have won the war by themselves?

Machine gunner.. wow. Must've been tough living with those memories.

The French being completely defeated in the Franco Prussian war did nothing keep them from aching for revenge for the next forty-five years.
Carrying the war to Berlin would have done nothing except wasting more lives. The Allies essentially took everything they wanted from Germany at Versailles. Sure, the next 20 years might have unfolded differently, but it would have been just as unstable. Maybe the communists would've taken over Germany, then the west would have to contend with Stalin controlling most of Europe. Who knows?

Wood, Jones and Bedoya would have helped. May have even gotten a couple shots on goal, but Argentina is so much more skilled and talented than the US, I'm not sure the final score would've been any different.

Edit: My apologies to Cameron. Not him.

Dempsey can continue watching the game on the sidelines...

Take the fucking shot.

In fairness the the Ghana players, iirc, they were not getting paid what their confederation promised.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||True, but Argentina is head||
True, but Argentina is head and shoulders better than every other side in this tournament. They should beat Columbia, and especially Peru, by a couple goals as well.
The US still has a long ways to go, but Bobby Wood and John Brooks have been revelations this tournament. US fans should be excited about those players. They're not going to make us competitive with the Argentina's and Germany's of the world, but they give us a reason to watch...which we didn't have prior to Copa.

Is Fox Sports Go totally awful for everyone else using it tonight? I'm used to it freezing on my a couple times a game, but it's like every minute tonight. Way inferior to WatchESPN, at least in my experience.

Can we put in a forward that will play some defense?

Eh, I would say that was at least 50% on Guzan.

I felt nothing when Rickon died. He was a nobody on the show. Only a little more meaningful than killing an extra.

Cool episode in a pretty blah season. GREAT battle scene. Wonder what's in store for next episode. Guessing Bran sees Jon's mother and Cersei/Jamie somehow defeats the 7 (please, the 7 are destroying the show). A big whitewalker battle scene would seem a bit sudden, but that would be part for the course this season.

No Wood, Jones and be Bedoya. How many goals do we beat Argentina by?

The ref was complete garbage all game and never should've been on the field.

Based on recent results, particularly world cup qualifying, Ecuador is a much tougher opponent. And based on what I saw today, Ecuador looked much better than both Brazil and Peru... though Brazil clearly has the most skilled players out of the three.
So, yes, this had turned into an unfortunate draw for the US.

The Brazil game is painful to watch. Peru is keeping everyone back and the ref is letting them knock down their guys in the box. At least 4 uncalled penalties so far.
