But I can't find a video of it that isn't thoroughly annoying.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Well that was enjoyable.||
Well that was enjoyable.

You'd guess correctly. Auf gehts (or, to go with the dialect of my avatar, Pack ma's)!
|5 days 22 hours ago||Cards reset after the quarterfinals||
One could be suspended for the semifinals via card accumulation (which is why Thiago Silva is out), but yellow cards are reset after the quarterfinals in order to ensure that no one is suspended for the final via card accumulation.
|1 week 4 days ago||Fair point||
I can understand that.
|1 week 4 days ago||I dunno||
Saying Klinsmann's style is un-American and that he should have been fired if the US had not made it out of the group stage is quite irrational. That and the fact that he's going to be doing games with Gus Johnson in 2018 is going to piss off a ton of people. Anyone who makes Gus look good on soccer broadcasts (at this point in time) should not be doing them.
|1 week 4 days ago||For reference||
The Dutch flat out failed to qualify in 2002. This led to a documentary from a couple of Dutch filmmakers creating a documentary about the two worst teams in the world at that point (Bhutan and Montserrat) called The Other Final. It's worth watching if you have a chance just to see what it's like at the low end of the FIFA rankings.
Argentina also didn't get out of the group stage in 2002. Germany, Brazil, and Mexico are the only ones to have done it in the modern format. Argentina (and I bet a few others) did it when there was a second round of group games awhile back.

Watching Shawn Hunwick stonewall North Dakota in 2011 remains one of my favorite memories while in school. It's not like it always backfires.

Hooray! Larkin to Detroit!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yep. As for the transfer bit,||
Yep. As for the transfer bit, there's a discussion ongoing about whether that holds up (transfers are apparently covered under article 23, not 22) so that should be interesting to follow as well.
EDIT: FIFA have said that he can transfer between clubs. That answers that question.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||The bigger question becomes||
The bigger question becomes whether or not those nine games are only for competitive matches. I would think that friendlies are included in that number, but not counting friendlies would be the harshest way to implement it (and probably the right one, too).
EDIT: Yanked from Liverpool's SB Nation site: The player Luis Suárez is to be suspended for nine (9) official matches. The first match of this suspension is to be served in the upcoming World Cup™ fixture between Colombia and Uruguay on 28 June 2014. The remaining match suspensions shall be served in Uruguay’s next World Cup match(es), as long as the team qualifies, and/or in the representative team’s subsequent official matches in accordance with art. 38 par. 2a) of the .
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I believe that is 9 FIFA||
I believe that is 9 FIFA related matches. The four month ban is the part to look at, since it essentially rules him out of club matches until the end of October. That isn't a small ban. In my opinion, FIFA actually got this right.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Muntari was already out for today's match||
As a result of yellow card accumulation. So that wouldn't have mattered anyways.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Yes via card accumulation||
Yellow cards don't reset until after the quarterfinals.

I'd rather watch a game at Yost than at Michigan Stadium. It's much more entertaining.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Really?||
Guess I missed that one. Still, it's not like he did anything against Croatia when he was healthy...
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Form||
He was invisible in the first game against Croatia. No one has made mention of him being injured but most expected him to be dropped for this game.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Now this is more along the||
Now this is more along the lines of what was expected.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||So is Fellaini good again?||
So is Fellaini good again?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||WOW||
This is surprising.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||And this isn't even early||
And this isn't even early 2013 Lukaku when his confidence was shot and he missed that penalty against Bayern in the UEFA Super Cup. That loan out to Everton might have been the best thing to happen to him.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||They also tried doing it when||
They also tried doing it when Michigan was only up one score too. It was getting messed up a couple of years ago too, if I remember correctly.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Too bad Benteke's out injured||
Or Belgium would be even more of a buzzsaw than they already are.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I remember that last paragraph's story||
That was a very entertaining beginning to a class.
I agree with everything in the above post. Take some time to get to know him and you will probably end up liking him. He is one of the most approachable people I know and will discuss just about anything with you. Doing research with him was one of the highlights of my undergrad life at Michigan.

Which is why when CSG surveyed students last year about how to improve attendance, wifi placed last. Wifi will not solve this problem by itself, and I'm not sure how much it will actually help to be honest.

Happy to oblige.

Clearly you missed the disclaimer a week or so ago about this site becoming a pseudo-World Cup blog for the next month because Brian likes writing about the World Cup. There's your connection.
And I think you vastly underestimate the popularity of soccer.

The $10,000 to dress up as Terrelle Pryor at your child's birthday party needs to make a return.

So you mean 20 years from now, right?
