|10 hours 23 min ago||That is a function of bigs boxing out||
and letting the guards rebounds. Derrick Walton is the best rebounding guards in the league. There's nothing wrong with it as long as Michigan don't allow ton of offensive rebounds.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Well||
No reason we shouldn't be getting 5 star players every year.
That is if Michigan wants to get into the bagmen game which will never happen under JB.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Depends on||
his draft stock. If he's projected as a day 2 pick, it's 50/50. Day 1, gone for sure.
|2 days 21 hours ago||One is overpaid||
I'm looking at you, Cam Cameron. Cam Cameron isn't a good OC and his scheme is antiqued. He struggles to adjust against top flight defense and can't scheme his way into a win.
|3 days 55 min ago||Not me||
because of shitty youth soccer training. Technical skills development is not emphasized for years. Now, we are much more educated about it and it's starting to shift towards that way, but still a long way from it.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Mason Cole is likely to come back for his senior year||
unless he gets a 1st/2nd round grade from the draft advisory board. They're keeping tab of him but not expecting him to declare early.
|3 days 11 hours ago||At least Bob Bradley||
didn't lose to shitty team like Jamaica or struggled against CONCACAF teams like they did in the last few months.
Klinsy isn't a good tactical coach. That's the biggest reason why I want him gone. He doesn't know how to pick the right players to be on the roster and doesn't know how to utilize them properly.
|4 days 10 hours ago||It didn't affect USMNT||
when they beat Spain 2-0 in 2009 Confederation Cup. Spain was probably the best team for 3-4 years running and USA broke their 35 games unbeaten streak.
USA roster was arguably worse than the last few years which tells you that Klinsy hasn't done much as a coach. It's not his fault that USA got their ass kicked? He made a shitty choice of starting certain players and isn't good in X's and O's. He's not a good coach.
|4 days 11 hours ago||debatable||
but Bradley has the trump card on Klinsy which is a marquee win over Spain. Klinsy has nothing and don't give me that win in friendlies.
|4 days 13 hours ago||All of the talks of Klinnsy being better than Bradley||
Bradley at least has that win over Spain in the Confederation Cup semi-final. USA parked the bus and conceded possession to Spain which was going to happen anyway regardless of the strategy. Bradley smartly knows their strength which is counter in which they used it to their advantage.
Klinnsy may have marquee wins but they came from friendlies, not important matches like Copa, World Cup, Confederation Cup, etc.
|4 days 13 hours ago||It's going to take years of training||
from ground up before we see the effect of the changes. Our youth system has sucked for years filled with parents who don't know shit about soccer coaching the team or coaches who wants to win games instead of developing technical skills.
We don't have the technical skills to compete with the elites.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Exactly||
It would be the biggest win since USMNT beat Spain 2-0 in the confederation cup semi-final. USMNT, of all teams, broke Spain's 35 games unbeaten streak.
Spain went on to dominate the next two years.
|4 days 18 hours ago||I'm with you||
but the objective is to win at all cost. If it has to be boring then so be it.
|4 days 19 hours ago||Have a question||
if you go with Amazon Firestick, Roku or other streaming services. Do you pay it by the month?
|4 days 19 hours ago||Glasgow||
is a NT and a two down player. He doesnt' offer much as a pass rusher but is very good against the run. The problem is there are ton of NT who are good against the run and has good size. The top NT prospects are the one who has the size at over 315 lbs yet have the athleticism to be disruptive in the middle.
Glasgow is a better college NT than a pro NT unfortunately.
|4 days 19 hours ago||It isn't a strong class||
of S in either conference. The best of the bunch is probably OSU CB, Conley who projects better in that position.
|4 days 19 hours ago||I already am conceding the game to Argentina||
unless USMNT somehow find a way to contain Messi which is pretty much a futile task.
Best chance of USMNT winning this one is to bunker down and defend, defend, defend until you can counter. I'd be okay with a 0-0 draw with PK deciding the game because I don't think USMNT can beat Argentina straight up especially when you have 3 players suspended for tonight's game.
|5 days 10 hours ago||They're in the conversation||
but the T-Wolves will be a major contender pretty soon. They have a great young core and could be the dynasty in the making. KAT is already a top 3 center, Zach LaVine is playing like an all-star in the 2nd half of the season, Wiggins oozes potential and if he does realize it, then watch out.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Considering the state of LT||
in the NFL, Decker is more of a true LT than at least half of them. Decker is pretty athletic and has great technique in pass pro (efficient and can set landmark).
He allowed 2 sacks in over 430 pass dropbacks.
|6 days 17 hours ago||Lions will pass on him anyway||
Lions will pass on him anyway
|6 days 19 hours ago||They won't do it. They have||
They won't do it. They have Decker slated to start at LT and Rieff to start at RT. Jake Long has never been healthy and would cost the Lions a lot of money to sign him. I'd pass if I'm the Lions
|1 week 1 hour ago||They're not a soccer power||
Top 25 isn't saying much considering that USA should be in it without a problem with the resources they have at their disposal.
By soccer power, I mean at the elite tier like Spain, Germany, France, Dutch, etc.
|1 week 11 hours ago||USA||
men's soccer never had the technical skills to be a consistent soccer power. That's a big problem.

don't offer scholarships.

Coaches really don't watch highlights. Highlights are for the fans, not the coaches
|1 week 4 days ago||You can reduce it but hard||
You can reduce it but hard collision will happen because players are bigger, stronger and faster than in the past and that will lead to a higher potential for head injuries even with correct techniques due to the speed of the game.
One player that I know has excellent techniques which is rugby style tackling yet he has multiple concussions because it's nearly impossible not to have a big collision with his head.
Your point is about making the game safer which is a totally different point than the topic mentioned above. My point is that it's nearly impossible not to make contact with the opposing team's head or make a big hit at full speed which would make it nearly impossible to determine if it's targeting or not. Targeting is a stupid rule right from the start and always has been.
|1 week 4 days ago||Thing is most players lead||
Thing is most players lead with their shoulders and that blurs the line of intent to injure.
|1 week 4 days ago||Your example is completely different||
than reacting to what's happening in front of you at full speed. Even if you tried to protect your head, it's inevitable that your head will make contact with something. There are too many variables to take account for especially when there's 200-300+ lbs running at full speed.
|1 week 4 days ago||Oh yeah, thanks for the||
Oh yeah, thanks for the correction. I had home/road backward. OSU hasn't lost a B1G game on the road under Urban. So disregard my paragraph about undefeated B1G home record under Urban.
|1 week 4 days ago||There are several plays where||
There are several plays where head on contact is unavoidable. Stupid rule to begin with and I'm speaking as a guy who used to play football and talked with a bunch of d1 football players about it. They said, it's nearly impossible to avoid at full speed
