Apparently, GR3 didn't really love school and felt he was playing out of position, so probably not. To be clear, I don't say any of that to denigrate him...he is humble and hard working and was a great team player in spite of the above.

Of course he can shoot it.

Did I say you can't? I'm one of those dudes that has to tell certain family members to cool down - that just because the US didn't win a game against a top 5 team in the world, it doesn't mean the players are all gutless and talentless and shouldn't be let outside. Did you miss the part where I said your points may well be valid and I was just curious?
But your aggression on the subject kind of tells me what I need to know. You're not actually interested in discussion and debate, you just want to vent. It's cool...I suppose one former player (who could well have a grudge for some personal reason) knows better than the German soccer federation and Bayern Munich, not to mention Sunil Gulati, who all hired the guy.
Nobody's perfect, and I'm personally not qualified to evaluate Klinsmann. I was hoping you could help, but I guess not. Which is not a knock...like I said, I'm not qualified either.

And a huge kudos to the players for drawing up that play in the dirt. If only their fitness instructor of a coach could set them up for something like that.
|1 week 8 hours ago||And yet...||
...with all of that, Wondo finishes and we're still playing. Not to mention that we had the better of the run of play with Portugal, who beat Ghana, who tied Germany - point is, you can't really ever use the transitive property in sports.
Just curious what your soccer chops are to tear down Klinsmann like that? And particularly without being in the practices, etc. to know what works and what doesn't. You may be eminently qualified, and may have valid points, just curious.

I suppose you also hate college football and basketball, because the NCAA is shit.

If that were to pan out, I might have to adopt a second favorite team!

In reading into the quotes, it probably goes something like..."you're going to practice against Spike Albrecht and that's going to prepare you for the NBA? Only the best of the best come to Kentucky. If you're not good enough for the challenge, go to Michigan. Remember who won the region and went to the Final Four last year."

I agree that the game meant much, much more to MSU than it did to Michigan, but we didn't have our seed locked up. Had we won, we'd have been in Virginia's spot, with MSU likely in Duke's (and Duke in ours). I'd have liked our chances in that region better, both at the time and in retrospect.

Ok. Now we just need Jalen Coleman.

This. Everyone wins if you can just share. If you stop doing it altogether (video games, specific jersey sales, etc.) then NOBODY wins. I suppose nobody winning is fairer than one side winning, but why have nobody win when everyone can win? Dumb.

Let's not state things in absolute terms. What if the words were "Please strike me, I beg you" or "I'm going to do very bad things to your mother right now unless you stop me"?

How about, don't profess to speak for what others are interested in reading.
You can have a criticism...one example would be, "I highly disagree that Klinsmann made the wrong call on Donovan, for reasons (a) and (b)."
If you don't believe World Cup Soccer is relevant on this blog, then you should probably reframe your expectations, but more seriously as others have suggested...just ignore those posts.

...is it will give him that much more clout when he recruits for Michigan. It can only help him reel in other top talent around him, which he'll be surrounded by at these events.

I hear you, man. I can't believe that he and thousands of other athletes wouldn't agree to continue to have their likenesses exploited so that other people could get rich and you could enjoy playing a video game!! Those selfish bastards! Ed, think about the kids and their desire to play video games before you go and worry about your well-being or health next time, prick.

And yet your signature specifically refers to auto downvotes based on what could be your user name?
Or am I just missing the sarcasm on that?

Like I inferred, we clearly have more to sell...it's just that Izzo does in fact have something to sell, even if not as much as we do.

Well, he does have (a different) Harris, and recency is powerful.
I agree with your point, just that Izzo does have something he can sell, even if we know it's BS.

What is Babcock's tie to either Red or Michigan? He didn't go there, play there, coach with Red, or play for him (as far as I can see on Wikipedia...apologies if I'm dead wrong on that)? Just general affinity and geographical proximity for many years?

I'm with you. One of my closest childhood friends, late 30s, with two beautiful 5 year old daughters, is in the hospital this weekend from complications due to the melanoma he's been fighting for the better part of a year. It's tragic.
My condolences for your loss.

Why in the world would you want someone back under those circumstances? That is 100% against what we are all about as a program.

Unless you're currently earning a paycheck playing the sport, methinks your tone is a bit...off.
