Same could be said of the Buffs. Michigan gets one or two studs from Colorado every couple of years. Why CU is not better is a travesty -- great campus, great school, lots of things to do, pretty co-eds from SoCal and Phoenix... they're idiots for not doing better.

Hostility??? Just tired of the Nancy Graces of the soccer world trying JK in the court of public opinion without offering rationale.
If you think you're so smart, deny what I've posted... that the US back line hasn't been in disarray for a while, that Bradley isn't a good midfielder, that LD should have been on the last roster even though he took time off when it mattered most.

Yes, we've had some great victories...
NOT consistently though.
Would a regular world power consistently struggle against Guatemala? Honduras? Jamaica? Someone expressing an opinion is not trolling. Learn the difference.
The state of England football is a mess. Not a good comparison... I just got back from there and the Brits are pissed for the same reasons we should be. Also, they have the best professional league in the world and their national team doesn't benefit a lot from it.

The difference in two of Michigan's losses last year was a pick 6 (Utah), and a fumble on the last play (Moo U.).
I'd say the future is very bright.

People in the know aren't calling for JK's head because the NON-pitchfork crowd knows it's going to take a generation to see the fruits of his labor. JK just isn't the head coach, he's fundamentally transforming ODP from the ground up.
This post is complete horseshit on so many levels.
People here in the States act like the US should be a soccer power after winning a couple of games here and there in the last 22 years. But IN REALITY, the contemporary USMNT has yet to win a game in the knockout round. And the US is still a long way from that.
How is the US going to win regularly? How when sides like Costa Rica can and Ghana kick our ass.
The USMNT has absolutely no back line and hasn't for a couple of years.
Midfield play is weak, the US can build up play against the lower rungs of CONCACAF and smaller Euro friendlies but if you're counting on someone lacking vision, like Michael Bradley, to take the USMNT to the next level, that ain't happening.
The messiah of the USMNT, Landon Donovan, took a fucking sabbatical during the last WC qualifying run. How many of the world powers would have put up with uncommitted shit like that on their teams???? Of course Donovan would get cut; shouldn't have been a surprise to the masses. Taking a page from the Jim Harbaugh book, you compete for your spot -- it isn't given to you!
In the meantime, JK has to look under every rock -- dependent kids of US service members in Europe for example, to piece together a side.
He hasn't gambled on a style of soccer more than he's doing his best not to regress until the kids in his pipeline grow up.
So hold on, buckle up, endure a few more maddening results, and support the damn guy as he tries to get past the clueless, feckless, inept impact Sunil Gulati has had on US SOCCER

I have two rules for my kids... everything else is on the table:
1. No goth. You want to be some brooding loser wearing black everything and hanging out with a bunch of other spoiled brat whiners who think that's a great way to rebel against everything -- not in my house. I raised you better than that.
2. No Ohio State. EVER.
With that said, there's not much wrong with a ND education. It's a good school, good alumni network; the priests of at my church all come from there (Brothers of the Holy Cross); they're universally great to be around.
A few douchebag fans aren't indicative of the overarching community at all -- the same can be said about Michigan you know (looking at you WD regarding your post on the topic)... I seem to remember a bunch of rich, entitled, assholes from back east that fucked up a ski resort last year while representing Michigan.

Do you any empirical evidence to back that up?
I think there's quite a few people around the Treetops area which would like to chime in there.

A school is never "bound" to a player for a 5th year... or any year beyond the current year for that matter.
He was given 4, 1-year aid-in-kind allotments. That's the dirty secret a lot of parents and students don't get or don't understand for some reason. The school holds all the power once the LOI is signed.
The student signs a LOI binding him/her to that organization for the term of their eligibility. If they wish to get out, they have to be released.
The school on the other hand only has to honor it yearly.

For example, Monmouth was 17-6 away from home, 2-1 against RPI top 50, won their regular season (but not conference tourney)... and didn't get an at large.
