Peppers at 10, which seems low.

Gino's I find to be the worst, easily, of the deep dish places the tourists go. Lou's is best.
Pequod's is even better, but isn't where tourists go since it's up in Lincoln Park not near the El.

Game's probably closer if Glasgow could play, since the way to beat them was to force them to throw it downfield at our very good secondary. But if you can't stop the run, they aren't going to bother throwing it much.
And yeah, they were loaded with talent. How they turtled themselves into losing to an MSU team playing without its QB is still beyond my comprehension.

My high school was in a conference with a school (public, no recruiting or anything) that one year had a team with 3 seniors who all were eventually picked in the NBA draft (two 1st rounders, one 2nd), one of which became an all star. Needless to say, those games were not close.

Sounds like they need to get Solomon's mom up for a visit. At the very least, they can give her Gwendolyn Bush's number to chat.

There is definitely a huge difference between the magic injury getting the 5th year, and using it to get a 6th year. Or at least, you would think there would be. I mean, there's loads of evidence from MSU's own site that Davis wasn't hurt that first year, what with his "scout team player of the week" honors in there. I don't know how they walk that back, unless the NCAA just doesn't give a shit, and being that 6th years are pretty rarely granted, the NCAA probably does give a shit.
I think they're less worried about the 5th year ones because you're not having a guy a year beyond what you could have anyway.

To expound, prep school is still considered high school for NCAA eligibility purposes and thus it doesn't count against your years of eligibility to play football - you still have the 5 years to play 4 years.
It's more common in basketball. Spike is an example, a family friend of mine did it as well, go play a 5th year out east to play against better competition, fill out more if you're a skinny dude (friend was a 6'8" beanpole), get seen by more schools, and get a D-1 scholarship out of it.

At this point at the national team level, Jozy might just be a bench forward you bring in if you're winning.

Bedoya was exhausted, and it was obvious he was exhausted even before the yellow. Klinsmann even subbed him out not too long after the yellow. It was a dumb lapse, and it was obvious to a ton of people watching the game.
Same goes for Zardes, waiting until late in stoppage time to sub him out. He looked dead with 5, 10 minutes to go, and subs kill some time too.

Getting a guy from Mississippi to go out of state is notoriously hard. We've seen this before. And that was when both programs there sucked.

I mean, just look what happened to our run defense before and after Glasgow's injury. That ought to tell you a lot about how good he is.

They mean a 370 guy, especially in high school, usually looks very fat, big gut, etc. Onwenu doesn't really look like that.

Hey, much like people in New Jersey do with Rutgers football!

Yeah, an offense like Oregon's seems perfect for a Speedy Eaglet. Honestly not sure why he'd pick MSU either, it's not like they've utilized slots. He's tailor-made for spread football, whether it's Oregon's option stuff or an Air Raid type.

Also Michigan-related, law professor Jim Krier's kid (and Andrew WK's brother) Patrick Wilkes-Krier qualified (tied with Mueller actually).

Still required a 3 hour drive each way from his hometown. It was a huge investment by his parents to get him to that club.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I might be in the minority||
I might be in the minority but I actually like having Johnson as a left back along with Yedlin at right. It gives them fullbacks who are also plenty gifted in the offensive half and I think can allow them to actually attack teams better. Both are going to be good with overlapping runs, and can take guys off the dribble/attack the box.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||He's better suited as a||
He's better suited as a technical director. His motivation, name, and recruiting are all big assets there, it helps him get things done that have been sorely needed for a long time in order for US soccer to take the next steps needed. The MLS was kind of on its way to academies but I think Klinsmann helped that push. There's no way the US would ever take the next step in development without more ability to get kids into elite training and programs without it costing said kids piles and piles of money as it has for many years. We're frankly very lucky that we have Clint Dempsey at all; there are probably 10, 100, who knows how many like him who also grew up without money but whose parents wouldn't or couldn't make the sacrifices (both financial and time) his parents did to get him to those clubs. Those kids play for their crappy high school coach that doesn't really know all that much about how to coach the game and thus the kids never develop at all.

They're also never going to respond to Leach because getting into a war of words with a guy who is frankly considerably more educated (both in degrees and what he does in his spare time) than they are is not going to go well for them.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Eh, FIFA is a ridiculous||
Eh, FIFA is a ridiculous corrupt organization but the regional and national associations are the ones that would implement a lot of things. The vanishing spray that is now ubiquitous came from Brazil, then was used by CONMEBOL in the 2011 Copa as the first major competition to use it. FIFA adopted it soon after because it was obviously a good idea that was helpful for refs in enforcing the rules.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||The sideline officials and||
The sideline officials and 4th official never seem to adequately get the ref to call those ridiculous simulations that should be yellow cards under the rules already in existence. Maybe a video official that can buzz the ref and communicate would help. Retroactive carding is a nice idea, but it wouldn't help for, say, the Champions League Final where any action wouldn't take effect until the next season.
I get the difficulty in gauging whether a guy was fouled and embellished and once in a great while you see an unjust yellow for it, but for things like the Pepe incidents, it would be quite easy for the officials to card him, especially if someone can quickly review on video.
