“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”

i never said it was as valid. Todd Howard, and others, using the "Ive been in the trenches so I know" is an attempt to say Howard is right on EVERY point and my oppinions have zero validity.
This mentality eliminates all discourse. I bet you have a lot you can teach me about what value a coach brings, but Ill also bet that your experience gives you a certain bias. Its not a bad thing, its just a thing. Acknowleding bias is a very important part of civil discourse.
To go into a discussion with a predisposition to discount anything I say because I havent done it is dumb,

Finally, someone responds to the situation with class.
Im glad he didn't address punishing any indivdyals, because thats not the point right now. Priority 1A is making sure this never happens again.

But the attempt to discount everything I say because I wasnt part of a DI program is horse shit. And athletes do it all the time. It's annoying.
Thats like saying the only people worth commenting on healthcare reform are doctors and nurses. The only people allowed to write book reviews are published authors. By discrediting someone's point of view due to lack of a specific kind of experience is absolutely asanine.

I absolutely despise when athletes take the stance that their anecdotal experience trumps all logic and statistical reasoning.
Having a beer with a guy does not qualify you better than me to judge someone's ability to coach.

T minus two minutes until John U Bacon denies these rumors

If the reports of John being the voice of reason in the ray rice saga are true, it would be indicative of him being the high character coach so many of us here prefer. He also beat jim on the biggest stage. This is wonderful news.

I couldn't disagree more with you. This is already a PR nightmare. Not firing hoke is even worse at this point of damage control.
If he keeps his job the university is going to lose so much credibility
Edit-this us supposed to be in response to the guy above who thinks hoke keeps his job

This is so wrong. Kirk ferentz is the clear and obvious choice

Have final round of interviews for my dream job today, Barcelona is looking as good as they did under Guardiola. Tea leaves suggest the sacking of DB and Hoke... Overall I'm pretty happy.

Maybe someone in charge of ESPN programming is a Michigan fan and is worried that not enough people realize how much of a bumbling idiot Brady Hoke is. Maybe the Michigan fan ESPN programming dude is trying to Push the court of public opinion into such a conviction of Hoke's buffoonery that DB has no choice but to fire Hoke.
I still would not be surprised for DB to extend Hoke rather than fire him. I have less faith in Brandon than hoke at this point.

Ye$. For the same reasons Theo Epstein took the cubs job. The infrastructure is here.
I really don't think the last coaching search was exhaustive. I think DB choose hoke before considering anyone else. I think if you open the job up to real competition,. We get a competent coach. Stop trying to limit the candidates to legacy coaches.

That's why the US plays games in Denver and Seattle as often as possible.

Honduras's national soccer team's home stadium.
The size of a fucking postage stamp, a field that is as much sand as it is grass, and there are concrete barricades exceedingly close to the field of play.
Dangerous as fuck.
Also, it's usually 95 degrees and 100% humidity there.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||If you list them in order,||
If you list them in order, Derrick green is in the third spot. If you look at home run statistics, for example, and there is a tie for first, the third person has the third most home runs, since two people have more than him. He wouldn't have the second most home runs.
Therefore, green is currently 3rd string because two players will be ahead of him in the depth chart

Pelosi can also play left back, I could see him playing there if we have a logjam at mid and a dearth of fullback.

He declined a Germany call-up, and lived in the US for 6 years. It is more than a hope that he plays for the US.

I disagree. We may only list 15 here but make no mistake, we have a large body of talent in the pipeline that isn't being discussed yet. The difference is our best prospects have lower ceilings right now than Spain prospects.
In the past, we would have to field journeyman untalented guys like Wondolowski, Bornstein, Ricardo Clark, etc... I think you won't see any of those type of guys on the 2018 roster.

Pelosi in stead of Stanko and I'll agree
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I dunno man. The US pipeline||
I dunno man. The US pipeline is in better shape than ever before. The probability of more than one guy not on this list to make the 2018 roster is pretty high. It is likely that a relatively less heralded player makes huge strides in the next four years simply because the number of Good US prospects is higher than ever right now. For the first time ever we don't have to pin our hopes on a guy like Joe Corona. If he doesn't reach his potential, a guy like Paul Arriola, Joe Gallardo, or Marc Pelosi will.
The arrow of US soccer is pointing firmly up.

Chile's offense is going to give the Brazil backline fits. Luiz, Marcelo, and Alves are going to need a lot of protection when they make their runs. I think this game should be very exciting to watch.
