"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

Unless they DO make changes, 22 is WAYYYYY too old to start your career as a soccer player. As the US continues to get better and gain more respect internationally (and even as MLS gets better), you will see fewer and fewer college players on future US World Cup rosters (other than maybe some goalkeepers who have much longer professional careers -- see Brad-I should have let the Make-a-Wish kid score-Friedel). College soccer's unlimited subs and countdown clock are things that absolutely need to be changed if they are to be taken seriously for professional players.

It probably felt like home because of that giant Michigan block "M" made out of rocks.

Just buy something with the Netherlands on it. Surely you don't have a superman-esque closet with every NCAA team's apparel in it???

seriously stop. it's not funny anymore. never was for that matter. it's early fucking July...it's not like anything noteworthy that's Michigan related has happened anyway. And it's your fault for not liking soccer not ours. it's as simple as not reading it....

I would love a soccer blpg by Brian. he's a better soccer writer than anyone out there and I read them ALL.

I upvoted you to make up for this comment...lol...but the Wings did not win the Cup the night before. The Wings won the Cup 6-13-2002 and that game was 6-5-2002.
But those are minor details, of course. I too used to have to hunt for people to watch games with, but in the last 10 years the number of people watching ANY USMNT game has grown exponentially. I assume you don't live near Ann Arbor based on that fact that you still don't know people who watch games -- but if somehow you do and you just don't happen to know any soccer fans, I highly suggest you make it out Conor O'Neills downtown. Hordes of us there.

No way, man. Not me. Not even close. Fucking Crosby scored and jdsigjuohgiushgaughgohsgsuguaisguahsgksg................ GAH that game STILL pisses me off.

This is easily one of the best pieces ever posted on this site. And that's saying something. Every point was just So. Very. Well. Said. I don't think I've ever "yep"ed and "mhmm"ed my way through an article so much before, especially a soccer one since so many of them are so poor and written by people who only think they understand the game.

Are you playing in the A2 area? I have been looking everywhere for some pickup footy and other than the occasional game at Elbel with kids much younger and fitter than I, I haven't found anything, really.

Wow that made me feel super old. '19 and '22??? Those sound like "flying cars" type years? Haha. Happy Friday, everyone!

EXCELLENT point. We went to the 2005 Rose Bowl because sparty beat Wisconsin for us. I was just as happy that day.

He wouldn't use Muppets ironically. And please, for the love of whichever god you do or don't choose, stop calling things "un-American".

IIRC, a few years ago he mentioned that he was considering it....
I would be 1000000% down for that. And mcbronco can come and be a cock over there too. He "loves" the blog...so much so that he has -92 MGoPoints.

they've recently found (live, wild) Wolverines in Michigan anyhow, so their argument is invalid.

soccer fields vary greatly; kind of like how there are NHL and Olympic-sized ice sheets. it doesn't have to be a certain width (in an event like the World Cup they generally standardize this, but for an international friendly it won't matter. It will just be a little more narrow than normal). If anything it will speed the play up a bit. And I am DEFINITELY going.

It's interesting that the rules state that....because Notre Dame just built a brand new arena and as you can see by that chart, it is not 200x85....

185x85?? Wow. In all the years I played hockey and all of the hundreds of rinks I've skated on, I have never played on an ice that was anything but 200 ft. long. That must be a total mindfuck, lol -- It probably feels like you got really fast all of a sudden.

I guess IMO it would be better if Hoke did it. HOWEVER, if Brandon is stepping in and doing something good for once, this makes me happy. I don't see a problem with that at all -- If anything it's good that he is getting involved when he feels he needs to; kind of the opposite of Mr. Martin...

You're totally right man, but (based on your handle) you don't live here. We are pessimistic because thousands of sparty dickheads and the occasional buckeye trash shoves our suckiness down our throats until we start to believe it. It's pretty hard to be positive, ATM.
