|4 days 13 hours ago||that isn't very M of you||
Desmond Howard, #21.
|1 week 15 hours ago||all of this is spot on||
Navarre is my all time favorite M player. He took all the unwarranted abuse, never complained, just kept his head down and kept working, and eventually got results.

Word is he hasn't been himself since his uncle Oberyn got killed.
|1 week 5 days ago||heh||
For about the first 20 minutes of Basterds, I was saying 'that's totally unrealistic, that would never happen, the war wasn't like that', etc. Then I told myself it wasn't a WW2 movie, it was an absurdist Tarantino movie with a WW2 setting. After that I could appreciate it for what it was.
|1 week 5 days ago||that color sort of looks like gold||
Not the shade that ASU normally uses, though. I suppose it's better than dark gray, but it doesn't look like an ASU uniform.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||bleh||
White's a Sparty color. We should wear it only as the background color on the road jerseys. The pants should always be maize or even blue, with no white.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||ouch||
Let's hope he comes back strong in 2016.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||of course you are||
Get with the program, bro.
In all seriousness, that ND uniform wouldn't look bad if the pants were gold instead of green.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||looks about right||
I think you're overrating Minnesota and underrating BYU, but those balance out.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||why would Rudock be shaky?||
If he's only as good as he was last year, he'll be a fine game manager type.
This team should win at least 7-8 games. If Harbaugh can get as much out of these players (relative to the talent level) that he got out of his first Stanford team, we should win at least one of Utah, BYU, and Penn St (who have comparable talent) and lose at most one of the 7 games against the less talented teams.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||RR||
I think more specifically RR learned that he has to trust his DC to handle the defense, or at least that he has to hire a DC who he already trusts.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||this isn't quite right||
Some players (e.g. Denard Robinson) who are extremely effective at the college level are not big NFL prospects. But yeah, you judge juniors and seniors by what they've done on the field in college and by that measure we're well behind OSU and even MSU.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||basketball tournament||
The other 7 teams in the Battle 4 Atlantis are Syracuse, UConn, Gonzaga, Texas, Washington, aTm, and Charlotte. We should get 2-3 good games out of that. The home schedule is dreadful, though.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||oh, Nike||
The Georgia one is ok because black is one of their colors. The others could suck the chrome off a trailer hitch.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||bulky and heavy||
If everyone has to wear the same helmet, it has no effect on competitive balance. Or were the helmets so bulky and heavy that they were causing other physical problems for wearers?
|5 weeks 11 hours ago||ok||
Army is the one team that should be allowed to wear camo uniforms.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||needs another conference||
You left too many teams out. The leftover league (or southwestern league, if you use the term loosely) has TCU, Baylor, Texas Tech, Utah, BYU, Boise St, Colorado St, Houston, Fresno St, and San Diego St. Instead of a 6 team playoff make it 8 with one at large team.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||No love for Sauerbrunn?||
She's a rock. I don't think she was ever out of position in this tournament.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||USA! USA!||
Not the best defensive performance today, although Japan to their credit played very well offensively. Johnston had a bit of a rough day. Japan's defense in the first half was godawful, and the US was absolutely ruthless in front of the goal. IMO Lloyd was the team MVP for the tournament, with Sauerbrunn second.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||that sounds farfetched||
Assuming that Driesenga is healthy, a proven starting pitcher is far more valuable than any incoming freshman is likely to be especially considering that M has 10 proven good hitters coming back (the 8 starters + Vargas and Swearingen).
I would think the rotation will start out as just Betsa and Driesenga, with Blanco and Crockett doing mop-up work so they can get used to facing college hitters.
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||LeRoux comes in||
to give Germany 15 seconds of hell! (I have a delayed feed)
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||good work by Morgan||
to play keep-away against 2 Germans.
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||Lloyd is MONEY||
Buries the pk, and gets the sweet assist.
O'Hara is also money, just not as much of it.
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||Wambach lumbers onto the field||
Defending against corners, I suppose.
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||Germany is getting impatient||
They had a chance to set something up, instead they chuck up a garbage shot from way outside the box.
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||Lloyd is money||
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||good on Morgan||
for drawing the penalty. Now to convert...
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||all things must end||
The US isn't the only team that can blow scoring chances.
|9 weeks 9 hours ago||halftime||
The US defense in general and Johnston, Sauerbrunn, and Brian in particular have completely stoned the German offense. They've been reduced to speculative shots from way outside the box.
The US has been far more threatening but their finishing has been beyond atrocious. If the second half shapes up like the first, the US should win. The US' finishing isn't chronically awful, it was just awful in the first half.
|9 weeks 9 hours ago||brutal||
Both players still down. Shame for Brian, she had been busting up attacks left and right.
