I suggest creating a fantasy 'football' team. Just take a stab and pick some players and it gives you a rooting interest, no matter which teams play.
It's hard to get quickly passionate about a particular club when you don't know their history, players, style, etc. But you may find yourself slowly warming to a specific team as you go along.

I think that's the nature of the World Cup. And what makes it so great. You can't hurt for four years until you get another shot, so you learn to look for the positives.
|3 weeks 19 hours ago||I think you may need to just||
I think you may need to just cool off. We are all disappointed. But so far what I got was Jurgan Klinsmann doesn't have a clue and Portugal isn't very good.
You definitely have a different opinion from all the other pundits!
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Very insightful. I'd +1 you||
Very insightful. I'd +1 you if I had the points!
I haven't watched a lot of the USMNT, but watching the local club team and England play 'hooof it and hope' from the back year after year is brain numbing.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Definitely loving the USMNT||
Definitely loving the USMNT coverage as well! Keep it coming.
I agree with England = current UM. Both desparing over an empire lost. Let's just hope UM's drought doesn't last as long as England's. One of the football anthems here talks about '30 years of hurt' and it was written in '96!
Living in England, however, I think my English friends may compare the US to Rutgers..."So they have a team? And they play with us now?"
Continuing on the US = Rutgers theme, "Why do they persist in talking into a microphone when they clearly do not understand the PR ramifications?" Ok, I kid. I kid.

"I love the site." I'm not sure if you know what that word means. Just a brief glance at your point total and it seems you must find a lot of it disagreeable.
We all free you from this relationshp mcbronco. I know it's hard to imagine it now, but there may be a more enjoyable place for you out there.

Don't live in fear man! It's only once every 4 years.
I live on the other side of the pond now and have come to appreciate the excitment that the 'finality' of the WC competetion brings. It's so different from our American sports that seem to keep adding extra playoffs, extra races, extra playoffs for the playoffs...
There's something about knowing you have to wait 4 more years for another shot that adds that extra measure of exhilaration. (or extra agony for my adopted country!)
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I haven't logged in or||
I haven't logged in or commented in a while either.
But I was wondering why our offensive line was so bad last year? I think it was a combination of youth, too complicated of an offensive sheme and our coaches may not be the best at developing players.
I'll just leave that here.
ps. just messing with ya.
pss. i actually just thought today I want to get to 100 points sometime and I need to say something.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||AD and season tickets||
Somebody should post the Saturday Night Live video of Chris Farley trying out for Chippendales. The one where he keeps trying to dance after he has been told 'no' repeatedly. Maybe with DB's head photoshopped on? "No Barney. No. We've made our decision..."

I know we would never put muppets up for a win over Purdue...but a sock puppet would be nice?
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Fun game to watch. Ace I||
Fun game to watch. Ace I hope we can get a gif of the alley oop from Spike to Horford: Momentary Nebraska player stuck to the court followed by Spike rodeo finger in the air.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||yeah i have to use those||
yeah i have to use those leading up to Easter as well
/s it did give me a chuckle though!
|24 weeks 3 days ago||well I was thinking one||
well I was thinking one senario is MSU could lose one more game than we do before the end of the season. but there are probably one or two other scenarios too.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||I know the perimeter shots||
I know the perimeter shots were not going down, but the thing that looked really different to me was that we were rarely scoring in transition. It seemed we were setting up from a half court offense more than normal.
I would assume a lot of that is because it was raining 3's on the other end.
Somebody may be able to show it wasn't statistically different from most games, but that's what it seemed like to me.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||"now we are looking at a tie||
"now we are looking at a tie for the B1G at best"
Did you think about that before you typed it? I'm just curious what would make you conclude that's the best case scenario that could possibly happen?
|25 weeks 20 hours ago||I just don't get what people||
I just don't get what people think Hoke should have done. Put yourself in his shoes.
I find out that one of my players was investigated for a sexual assault in the past, but no charges were filed by the authorities who followed procedure. What would you do here? You would really perform your own independent investigation for something that happened under someone else's watch?
Then I find out that my player is being investigated again for this same situation...an alleged sexual assault. I know there are legal authorities in place to deal with it using proper procedures. So I am supposed to suspend my player, assuming that he is guilty before the investigation is concluded?

i'm just surprised Iowa are still in this with the leg cramps and all. they are brave.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||was hoping for a gif of the||
was hoping for a gif of the 'Spike, you no get to call a timeout' fiasco but Brian's explanation of it is even better than the gif!
|25 weeks 3 days ago||that explains it! thanks for||
that explains it! thanks for responding.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||question||
what made Beilein finally flip? I was surprised to see it, and about 10 different calls caused me to blow a gasket. But on this one he kept pointing towards his nose. Anyone?
|25 weeks 4 days ago||why wait?||
edit. sorry double post. everthing...moving...too...fast.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||why wait?||
Late subs are great!
If it wasn't 2.30am where I'm at, I would go get some. But for me they would be early subs. Not good. Early subs mean trouble.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||hope we get a gif of that ref||
hope we get a gif of that ref standing right over Spike and not giving the timeout
|26 weeks 2 days ago||"don't judge a person's||
"don't judge a person's character by what they do between the lines...judge a man by what he does off the field, what he does for his community, what he does for his family."
I guess I thought the definition of character is that you are the same person no matter where you are or what setting you are in. If I have to explain to you what areas of my life you are not allowed to judge my character by, then it pretty much reveals my true character?
|33 weeks 2 days ago||Brian's best line||
"and the mind argues with itself about whether it should say "hooray" and wave a little flag or "did you notwant to win the Iowa game?" and wave a pitchfork."
And this is what will make my brain argue with itself for the next 12 months.
Part of me thinks I would feel better getting trounced in that game trying to run manball and know the direction the coaches are headed in rather than the feeling of having no clue what offensive system we are going to roll out next season.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||I'm probably crazy too||
but i've been wondering for a while if Lewan has been subconsciously being more careful in games they should win so that he doesn't get hurt. But in this final shot at OSU, threw all caution to the wind.
That probably sounds like I'm calling his character into question, which I am not.
|35 weeks 21 hours ago||Hey Brian, thanks for writing||
thanks for writing this one. it answers the main question I had from your initial game summary where you mentioned the near-interceptions could be attributed both to predictable play calling and bad decision making.
So it helped to see the different categories and I like hearing your thought process on things.
|35 weeks 21 hours ago||this one is my favourite||
thanks for the chuckles a2_electricboogaloo! needed a laugh today.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||not trying to pick a fight||
...but which one is it?
"That was a major cause of Gardner's near-INTs: Michigan was running the same things they always do and Northwestern was in the huddle on them"
"Guy has lost faith in his line with good reason and is making bad decisions."
It's probably some of both.
I would be more happy than sad if Borges was gone after this year. But I guess I felt like Gardner showed on Saturday why his short, quick passes could be more frustrating than the efforts to install a running game.
