- Italy has to win out against Costa Rica and Uruguay
- England must beat Costa Rica
- Costa Rica must end up at least equal in goal differential and goals scored for England to advance. If CR loses to Italy 2-4 and to England 0-1, for instance, CR would advance on the basis of having scored more goals, although the goal differential would be the same

That's how I feel about JJB also.
I think it's just awesome the fact that a stud football player is an unabashed SW nerd. One of those neat unexpected things, like Steve Breaston the poet.

I assumed OP meant to say "not much that's really NEW here..." as this is a story most of us have heard many times before, although I was clearly proven wrong by the response below. But yes, always inspiring, even the 20th time.

We had an early 80's Olds Cutlass Cruiser in light metallic blue with faux wood paneling when I was a kid. My dad hung curtains that my mom cut/sewed in the cargo area so my sister and I could sleep all stretched out without the sun in our faces on long trips. Those were the days.

Less than an inch is clearly an exaggeration, but referring to the strike off the crossbar in extra time and the PK off the post. Of course, Brazil had multiple opportunities in the first half (despite the extremely sluggish and sloppy 2nd) and could easily have scored 3 goals. Regardless, they're lucky to be alive.

that mike matheny story was great. didn't realize he was a c'bus native who was ignored by osu and ended up at Michigan, going on to become a star player and major leaguer.

Have you posted this to the Michigan alumni club? FB, twitter, heck even LinkedIn? There are (national/local) UM Alumni groups represented on all those channels.

Who has the better resume over the last 3 seasons? 2014 result (Coaches rank, 247 Recruiting Rank)
Shows that Michigan has been the best recruiting team over the past 3 seasons by far, while msu has been most consistent in terms of final ranking. Michigan has clearly been the class of the conference over the past 2 seasons, though, in terms of recruiting and final ranking.
I'd be surprised if Ryan and Izzo are not 7-8 in either order. Any higher and, well, I just don't know what to tell you.
Ahead of Beilein must be Coach K, Calipari, Pitino, Donovan, Self, and Gregg Marshall of Wichita State. Don't know the order, though.

Now Japan has some fans. You can't accuse them of not turning out. Granted, Brazil has the highest population of Japanese outside Japan.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||My confessions||
I was a huge fan of Jim Jackson and Robert Smith when they were at ohio state. I always felt like Smith was too good for osu.
I don't really like most of our recent basketball uniforms. I did like the ones with the small block Ms. Still have my old mid-90s era Nike shorts.
I can't stand the programs, but notre dame and ohio state have some pretty catchy fight songs. As an aside, none of my Illini alum friends even know their fight song.
My favorite non-Michigan school is the University of Georgia, having been born and raised in the Atlanta area (Decatur, Stone Mountain, Marietta).
The Columbus, OH area actually isn't bad. Downtown is clean and has some interesting spots close to the city (Short North, Arena, German Village). Pretty good restaurants My sister used to live in Powell and it was a nice suburb. The zoo is nice. Surprising number of large employers.

I just never capitalize "osu" (unless it's officially official, like that one proposal I helped write in response to an RFP issued by osu for some consulting services; proposed team was made up of 2 Michigan grads, an msu grad, and an IU grad).
I also generally don't capitalize "msu" and "nd".
