Not foreign born, but he does have a Croatian passport and was recruiting by the Croatian FA to play for them. But that's was apparently just to make it easier to work in Germany.

Fine stop gap for the next 18 months. Margin for error in the Hex is now razor thin, but there's a good talent pool waiting and Arena has plenty of experience qualifying in CONCACAF. Just reeeeaaalllyy hope he doesn't run off some young dual nationals. Can't believe Klinsmann didn't cap-tie CCV against Costa Rica. One final 'fuck you' to US Soccer perhaps?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Being on the level of the top||
Being on the level of the top European teams may be a pipe dream for now, but being the best team in CONCACAF is not. Getting to the Confed Cup is not. Winning a WC knockout game is not. Focus on that first, achieve that consistently, then look toward the next level.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Get the fuck out of here.||
Get the fuck out of here. You tell the army veterans their sons aren't American enough to play for America. See how that goes. Playing for the US is literally a birthright for most of them should the want it.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||That's the one scary part of||
That's the one scary part of Arena. But I think the worry is now just qualifying for the WC on short notice and Arena has the experience to stabilize the team before a longer term choice is settled on probably after the WC. But who knows, maybe he does a great job and keeps it longer term?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Disagree. Those games were||
Disagree. Those games were driven by emotion totally. Which is all well and good, and one thing Klinsmann appeared good at. But we saw also what happens when you only have emotion and 'effort' but lack structure to use it in; they got trounced by Columbia twice and Argentina embarrassed the US. It is clear that he capfuls the transform the US into what he promised at the beginning and no overall progress has been made in the last 5 years. It's time for a change.

Man, second time Beilein has remade his staff to adjust to college basketball. Kudos
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Your attitude is fine if your||
Your attitude is fine if your expectations are 'hey, we can get 10 wins this season!'. If your watching the game as a barometer to bearing OSU and making the playoff, this game has been horrible.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Same here. I actually think||
Same here. I actually think it will be interesting. Not really good, but interesting. There are stakes; loser probably doesn't get a single conference win and is the worst team in the B1G
|3 weeks 4 days ago||US squad isn't coached or||
US squad isn't coached or organized well enough. It's gotta be the most pure talent they've ever had.

So whoever loses this game pays for the wall? That's not politics, right?

|3 weeks 5 days ago||I don't think any true frosh||
I don't think any true frosh WR contribute greatly. They'll have packages like this year, but it'll take a year for them to learn and run the offense effectively. Look out for the WR core in 2018
|3 weeks 5 days ago||DL will be the problem next||
DL will be the problem next year. Starters look good and should be great rushing the passer, but little depth unless some young peeps majorly step up. Also Winovich needs to work on holding up to the run.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Also some late night USWNT vs||
Also some late night USWNT vs Romania action. Should be a body bag type game, but hey, I'll take any chance to feel good about my country right now.

Guessing there was some bone breakage that required a couple of surgeries or something
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Early playing time? But what||
Early playing time? But what about all those young players MSU is playing who will kick down starting positions next year already on the great team they'll be next year?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Bah. I mean, he'll probably||
Bah. I mean, he'll probably be a great guard, but was kinda hoping he would be a NT long term.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I mean their business model||
I mean their business model has become overpay for sophomoric personalities that don't put any thought into opinion shows and yell a lot. Doesn't seem sustainable to me.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||The increase in offensive||
The increase in offensive efficiency is amazing. UM has a more efficient offense and defense than OSU. Pretty awesome
|4 weeks 3 days ago||One awesomely prepared drive||
One awesomely prepared drive that got like 70 of their 400 yards. I would like to see the D clean up the missed tackles. That and holding the edge with McCray and Stribling are the biggest red flags going forward right now. Every game is an opportunity to improve in those aspects, irregardless of opponent.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||And the D should have||
And the D should have dominated a worse MSU team which is predicated on the same principles. I just want to see the D regain it's utter dominant form against anyone at this point.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Actually they played pretty well against both UW and Colorado.||
Actually they played pretty well against both UW and Colorado.

I just hope the D gets it's shit together this game. Need to get back on track and take a hard look at what the previous weeks have exposed to prepare for OSU.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Man, that Illinois game the||
Man, that Illinois game the week after UM for bowl eligibility looms large....
|4 weeks 3 days ago||But seriously, they are in no way the #10 team.||
But seriously, they are in no way the #10 team.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Ugh. Looks like OSU is||
Ugh. Looks like OSU is putting it together in the late season as usual.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Nah. UC had like three crazy||
Nah. UC had like three crazy fluky plays and a bad read by Peppers and then was obliterated. And besides, they're actually good. It's OK to give up some yard to decent teams. To MSU and MD? Not so much.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Nah. It was clear early||
Nah. It was clear early there were no expectations with those teams. This team can win it all, this even small flaws are a big dealZ
