A lot of people thought Hope Solo should not have played in this World Cup.
They can take comfort . . . she barely did.
|6 hours 38 min ago||I happens when England plays||
I happens when England plays Germany too. Not humanity's finest moments.

Why is there a Dick Vitale? A Lee Corso?
It's TV. They go for entertainment first. If you happen to learn something along the way, that's nice. But it's not vital(e).

Most great athletes fall off the cliff suddenly.
Some fall off two cliffs.

The best part is that I just GIS'd "Laquan Treadwell" straight up, with no qualifiers, and this was the third thing that showed up.
The second thing was the pic with him and the Ole Miss "hostess" girls on his recruiting trip that was posted earlier.
|18 hours 2 min ago||And that 180 was pulled in||
And that 180 was pulled in like one day, right on the cusp of NSD.
So . . . .you don't even have Ole Miss on your radar and suddenly they overtake your favorite of the last entire year right before NSD?

it's the SEC. If you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin'.
|18 hours 16 min ago||And they land all those top||
And they land all those top recruits the day before NSD, yet they were never mentioned as even being in on these guys all year long.
Nothing shady going on there. No, sir. Nothing at all.

We'll be playing softball in June again!

Borges has that deep soothing voice. Very comforting in moments of stress.
His real future is in some kind of therapy.

And not Penn State, Rutgers, or Maryland.
I like that.

Rich people problems.

Whoo Hoo!! New jersey is Big Ten country!
Thank you, much maligned Rutgers.
The B1G may never actually make any money off the addition of Rutgers, but we've certainly profited.
|3 days 21 hours ago||I did that once, almost . . .||
I did that once, almost . . . I was clearing back to the goalie late in a tied match, but I did not hit it hard enough and the field we were playing on had thick grass. I wound up leaving a sitter about 10 yards from goal which got easily tapped in.
I felt like the stupidest human being on the planet.
I just turned and walked off the field, out to the parking lot, got in my car, and drove home.
Nobody ever said a word about it. It was like it never happened.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Well, Japan it is.||
Well, Japan it is.
I hate playing Japan. It's like playing ants.
But the positive thing is it will get everyone's attention. The USA may have gotten caught napping against England, a B- version of ourselves, but that won't happen against Japan.

As the father of a daughter, I'm almost crying myself.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Yeah, a lot of people think||
Yeah, a lot of people think that Jim Harbaugh is an asshole because he marches to his own drummer. But you never hear them say he does things that are stupid or ill-conceived or lack integrity. He's just weird about it.
|4 days 19 hours ago||Harbaugh is a clever guy. He||
Harbaugh is a clever guy. He knows what buttons to push and when to back off.
My main problem with Dave Brandon is that I did not trust his inner compass. When push came to shove, I did not trust him to do the right thing for the good of Michigan. He always seemed to be guided by some other compass, always some other ulterior personal motive.
I don't see that with Jim Harbaugh. He has a brusque and quirky style that will offend some people, but he's that way while still doing the right thing. I trust his inner Michigan compass.
He does not necessarily care about what other people off to the side think, but he does care about what matters.
|4 days 20 hours ago||True. There would have been||
True. There would have been all kinds of talk of FIFA conspiracies to "get back" at the US.
You know it's true.
I'm sure in Germany they are saying crap like the Ref was afraid of crossing the USA and having the NSA and FBI start looking up her financial and personal information.
|4 days 20 hours ago||I would not want to be the||
I would not want to be the team that plays them in the 3rd place game.
Can you say 7-1?
|4 days 20 hours ago||Yet I'm sure Saban says they||
Yet I'm sure Saban says they were all for legit reasons.
And while I don't personally believe him, we don't really know the truth.
This is why it would be helpful for the NCAA to have somewhere for players to go to get a true independent medical medical analysis, that is not working for the team and is not working for the player.
|4 days 20 hours ago||He should.||
Just like Dave Brandon, he does not "own" Michigan. He is in a trust position in a very public institution.
It would be naive to think it does not matter.

Lloyd? Not really after the group stage. She has stepped up.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Yeah, were not going to||
Yeah, were not going to longball Germany. We will need some build ups from the back.
|5 days 10 hours ago||No. It's not like they||
No. It's not like they dragged in Lalas from 1994 to pontificate on every innane topic that pops into his head.
Oh, wait . . . .
