Australia's not part of Oceania?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Stayed up til 3 and walked 40||
Stayed up til 3 and walked 40 minutes to home! Ugly game but who cares! Just win...just through baby!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||What? I said he should at||
What? I said he should at least be banned for the rest of the World Cup.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Don't forget Muntari is out||
Don't forget Muntari is out for Ghana because of yellow cards
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Ugh, ignorant armchair||
Ugh, ignorant armchair psychology like this is annoying. I suppose it's a great thing that Jozy's out because his confidence was shot, right? Or did he get back enough of that in the Nigeria game?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I'd probably be angrier about||
I'd probably be angrier about being spit on because of the disrespect, but ultimately I'd rather be spit on than tear an ACL due to a horse-collar tackle or have brain injuries for the rest of my life due to helmet-to-helmet collisions.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, that'd really change||
Yeah, that'd really change things.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Because if there's a major||
Because if there's a major ongoing issue, Congress isn't allowed to talk about anything else? You can walk and chew gum at the same time.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I think a lifetime ban is way||
I think a lifetime ban is way over the top. Some people apparently have the idea that biting someone, not even hard enough to break skin, is just the most demented thing you could do, and I don't get that. Yeah sure it's weird and it hurt, but ultimately how is it worse than last year's final and the dude from the Netherlands kicking that Spanish player right in the chest?
He should certainly be banned for the rest of the World Cup at least though. You could make it longer, but no one cares if he's out of a friendly next year.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||"otherwise you'd have to card||
"otherwise you'd have to card the whole team."
Not true. If you start giving cards for diving, the amount of diving will drop like a rock. It happened in a World Cup match in 2010 or 2006, can't remember exactly, but a couple cards were given for diving and then it was a pretty clean match the rest of the way. Everyone dives because it's high reward and no risk, just gotta change the equation. I don't mind guys embellishing a foul in case the ref didn't see it.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Well, maybe that kid needed||
Well, maybe that kid needed help, but I don't think biting in and of itself means much regarding the mental state of a child. A friend of mine was a biter when we were young.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||You know you get suspended||
You know you get suspended from the next match if you get 2 yellow cards, right? And it doesn't have to be in the same game. That's nothing to sneeze at. Jones has a yellow now. If he gets another against Germany and we advance, that's really gonna hurt not having him.
I also want a clock between pitches in baseball.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I don't get how Seth is discounting the SEC's||
I don't get how Seth is discounting the SEC's ranking based on schedule strength; SRS is supposed to account for that. It may well be that SRS is a dumb stat, but that's not evident from this post.
More importantly, he's discussing the 70's, but when people nowadays talk about the SEC being the best, they're talking about...nowadays. I mentioned in the airing of grievances thread how it's true that Michigan fans live in the past and this seems like a prime example.

Right. The main physical attribute of world class soccer players is endurance
|2 weeks 6 days ago||The alternative is exactly||
The alternative is exactly what they have now, ties. I agree there's no alternative once you're in the knockout rounds, but my reply was to someone complaining about it coming down to goal differential instead of ties, so I was just commenting on how it's done in the group stage.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Well I probably shouldn't be||
Well I probably shouldn't be looking at comments on cnnsi or espn stories, but that's what EVERYONE was saying, that he's on the team only because of his dad, and I'm sure they weren't kidding.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I see Ghana winning as well,||
I see Ghana winning as well, but I'm not that pessimistic. Yes it's Germany, but we just need a draw. They'll still be dangerous but won't be super aggressive. Also, I doubt there will be any formal agreement, but I'm sure Low and the Germans would like Klinsmann to show well.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||I agree Bradley hasn't been||
I agree Bradley hasn't been good, but it's getting annoying hearing everyone say he's only on the team because of his dad. I'm sure the guy who was fired still has so much sway, especially over a guy like Klinsmann who surely wouldn't be willing to kill any sacred cows. You do realize Klinsmann couldn't see into the future and magically know that one of our best players would be off his game in the World Cup, right?
|3 weeks 5 hours ago||I had heard it was yellow||
I had heard it was yellow cards next, but apparently that's not the case, at least anymore. Thank God. As long as we don't lose by more than 1 and/or Ghana doesn't win by more than 1, we're in. That's not likely.
|3 weeks 5 hours ago||Agreed. Shootouts are||
Agreed. Shootouts are lame
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I absolutely think it's the||
I absolutely think it's the same for any fanbase.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I'm annoyed by people||
I'm annoyed by people thinking we need someone more academically-inclined to run a football program. It's football fergodsakes. FWIW, I think RR's a better person than Carr.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I don't like the song, but it||
I don't like the song, but it got way more shit than it deserved. I hate all the piped-in music, but if you're going to play mediocre pop songs, they might as well be about Michigan.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||So were we more aggressive||
So were we more aggressive and hateful when we were dominating State?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I normally do too, but that||
I normally do too, but that one's just true.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||By negative, do you mean they||
By negative, do you mean they were bad people or bad students? Certainly, the entitlement thing would annoy me, but I also know even being a TA at Carnegie Mellon, students will make excuses and be as lazy as they can be. I'm sure in an academic setting, I'd be annoyed with the athletes like I'd be annoyed with the kids who play on their phones and then wonder why they're getting poor grades.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I left the Virginia game at||
I left the Virginia game at the half because my dad wanted to.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed. I think RR's tenure||
Agreed. I think RR's tenure would have been different. Maybe he would have still failed, but it wouldn't nearly be so ugly.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||That's some cherry-picking.||
That's some cherry-picking. Our success had more to do with Schofield than Lewan?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||But that's not on Gardner...||
But that's not on Gardner. The running game was nonexistent. Running more is the only thing Borges could have screwed up worse. How can Gardner rely on the running game anyway? He doesn't call the plays.
