All, obviously, very exciting. But me talking about 2022 and you talking about some 12 year old. I feel like watching the Tigers for a little bit.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||2022||
2022. That's the world cup to be really excited about, especially if it's still Klinsmann's team/program, and especially if it ends up being on home soil. IMO, that's going to be our first genuine chance to really establish ourselves as legitimate contenders on the international scene. Look at all the prospects we have around that ripe 2022 age (~22ish) on top-tier clubs..
ST: Dembakwi Yomba, 17, La Liga (Spain)
CM: Gedion Zelalem, 17, Premier League (England)
RB: DeAndre Yedlin, 20, Serie A (Italy)
GK: Cody Cropper, 21, Premier League (England)
Eight years is a long, long ass time away. But that's a hell of a lot of top-league talent that projects to be 30 or younger in 2022. That's a hell of a base to build on. I don't see any true 'world-class' players in that group (i.e. super-duper-stars). But if there's a twelve-year old kid somewhere in this country (or within our stealing grasps) who has that kind of potential, and who's groomed properly.. 2022 could be a real-deal shot for the US.

I'm somewhat new to being interested in the formations and tactics..
Could someone please kind of diagram the 4-3-3 Brian's suggesting we should go with?
It sounds sort of like..
LW-Green ST-Altidore RW-Gatt
LB LCB RCB RB
I don't get it at all?
|5 years 13 weeks ago||idk man, it'll be||
idk man, it'll be interesting. they've got a terrific qb obviously. i'm guessing they spread out 4 and 5 wide most of the time. we had a bit of trouble at the beginning of the year with western's similar style offense. we're a completely different team now.......most importantly, with a much better secondary.
i mean, what, we've got floyd, countess, woolfolk (if needed), avery, taylor at corner. then kovacs and gordon/woolfolk at safety. those guys have all gotten a lot better. as have ryan and beyer coming off the edge.
plus, we can control the clock much better with our running game then, against houston's d especially i'd suspect.
could be a very dangerous game, but one i think we'd probably be able to win.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||he's been incredible. him||
he's been incredible. him and dunn should be an excellent combination for the next two seasons.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||huh, never would have guessed||
huh, never would have guessed that the italian league was less regarded than the german league.
thanks a ton for the response though man, very helpful. maybe i won't sound like such an idiot when talking to foreign friends now.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||wish him the very best at||
wish him the very best at oregon or wherever he ends up. seemed like a good kid.
as far as our team is concerned, i think we'll be fine. we have two other tight ends that i like very much. we've got a junior tight end that i really like that is very interested. and there are a lot of other studs at positions of needs we could use.
...i wonder if we'll get re-involved with ron thompson?
|5 years 13 weeks ago||if you're asking michigan||
if you're asking michigan fans...we saw both in bowl games...and vince young was 10 times better in that game.
both looked pretty damn good when i watched them passively in NC games that didn't involve us. but neither really seperated.
so i'd go with young.
but vick was still better than both.

RIP. I don't follow GA at all, and I am very well aware of who this guy is. You don't get to be that famous as an announcer without being special.

we'll definitely be in the top 14, qualifying us for the BCS. no doubt about it. none whatsoever. don't waste any time worrying about it.

lol, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz also, but...
i've always wondered
how do the professional leagues across the globe rank amongst eachother?
EPL obviously first...i don't know much else...i just play a lot of fifa and follow the US national squad.

it's stupid and needs to end. dave brandon needs to send out a memo.
the absolute worst, imo, was braylon edwards' "lloyd carr's michigan" during the rr era. ryan van bergen said it best wrt that bunch.

its so crazy that michigan sports in general are so anti-michigan artists.
give me the white stripes...eminem...kid rock...bob seger...motown artists...so many great choices for half time shows of big games and we always screw it up.

heck of a game man. can't believe he was cut in the pre-season. was it just me or did he also look a lot slimmer and quicker??
|5 years 13 weeks ago||as a die hard wings||
as a die hard wings fan/crosby hater, even i am happy to see him coming back. he's big for the league man. we need him back. we need to have a big year with the nba gone, and us in the spotlight.

things are looking very, very, very bad, in all phases...ehh
|5 years 13 weeks ago||hate to break it to you, but||
hate to break it to you, but UofM student fan by and large sucks. Just a fact of our great university. when i was a student there, the student section was filled with 95% kids that had no actual high school football playing experience. they're mostly quizbowlers, marching banders, cross countryers. they're lack of passion for the actual game of football is accentuated by bad weather.
just part of having a prestigious academic university.
if you want a great student fan base, go cheer for msu, central, western, eastern, etc.

market is what the market is, but all things being equal, or close to equal, you can spare a few bucks for your fans.

we'll probably get into the necessary range with an OSU win. lot of teams still have games to lose ahead of us as well.

wow, i wasn't buying any of this BCS at large bid stuff...but it's getting serious isn't it? we're projected to play in the sugar bowl right now i think, against houston. assuming that msu gets beat by wisconsin in the b10 championship game.

it caused more contraversey than the other route would have. probably a bad decision in retrospect.
