Ahmed Musa is the real deal. He can create some opportunities right there. That trap from the Victor Moses cross was pretty impressive.
|06/20/2018 - 2:35pm||Spain v Iran is painful to…||
Spain v Iran is painful to watch so far. Iran putting 6-7 guys on the edge of the box and just letting Spain pass around.
I mean good for Iran knowing what they can do to try and mitigate Spain's attack, but woof. Iran in the attacking 3rd for what seems like the first time in 34 minutes.
|06/20/2018 - 11:34am||Nope I was wrong. Doesn't…||
Nope I was wrong. Doesn't happen until 2026 when the US, Canada and Mexico host it together.
|06/20/2018 - 11:33am||It comes down to the group…||
It comes down to the group you qualify through. If your qualifying group of countries are weak, then being the strongest of the weak gets you in to the tournament.
I think you will see less of this when they expand to more teams, which I believe is supposed to happen in the next WC if I'm not mistaken.
|06/20/2018 - 10:57am||Suarez and Cavani were both…||
Suarez and Cavani were both found wanting. I suspect they will have a little more success against a much less talented Saudi team.
|06/20/2018 - 10:55am||Good to hear that 7 Nation…||
Good to hear that 7 Nation Army is still getting airplay for player entry to the field of play. It's like a national anthem in and of itself, is it not?
|06/20/2018 - 10:44am||Says all you need to know…||
Says all you need to know right there.
|06/20/2018 - 10:43am||Not game related, but anyone…||
Not game related, but anyone else annoyed by Alexi Lalas? The guy is kind of a turd burger on TV. My opinion, maybe others don't find him so annoying?
|06/20/2018 - 8:36am||First I've heard that…||
First I've heard that nickname, but I really like it. Supreme Peacock!
|06/18/2018 - 3:27pm||In attack, I think they miss…||
In attack, I think they miss the likes of Loftus-Cheek and Marcus Rashford. Now, I'm watching this about 25 min behind so if they are on the pitch now, sorry.
|06/18/2018 - 12:00pm||For all the talent they have…||
For all the talent they have on the field, they looked very uninspired. Hazzard is the only guy pressing the CBs and even that has been few and far between.
|06/18/2018 - 11:28am||Wow that is certainly a…||
Wow that is certainly a position to take!! I love your passion, I just can't get it in me to have Mexico like I do OSU/MSU or for that matter Liverpool and Man City.
Don't get me wrong, when they play the US, I am 100% against them, but otherwise whatever.
|06/18/2018 - 10:26am||I could do without their…||
I could do without their overuse of Lucha Libre masks for sure, but in general I only dislike Mexico b/c their our biggest rival. On the global stage, I hope they beat the establishment.
IMO, Mexico is not like Ohio State b/c Ohio State is the establishment. Maybe more like MSU.
But I can't lie and say I wasn't rooting for Mexico yesterday, b/c I was, and I never root for MSU or OSU.
|06/18/2018 - 9:05am||The only dismantling that's…||
The only dismantling that's taken place so far has been Russia over Saudi Arabia, so I don't expect that. On paper it should be an absolute murderfest, but I expect Tunisia to play with 11 men behind the ball, keep their D very compact and force England to play down the channels. If Trippier has a big day bombing down the right, I think England win by a 2. If They try and play through the middle then anything could happen.
Belgium should tear Panama apart.
|06/16/2018 - 10:29am||Iceland is a team pretty…||
Iceland is a team pretty much everyone can root for. Vikings taking down the establishment? Yes plz.
|06/16/2018 - 10:27am||Messi shits the bed on that…||
Messi shits the bed on that penalty kick! Say what you like about best player in the world but CR7 doesn't miss those chances.

Allergy related, I swear.

I'm working up a soar throat as we speak. Just kidding. (Just in case my boss frequents the site and knows my user handle).
|06/15/2018 - 9:25am||I have been really impressed…||
I have been really impressed with Egypt's D so far. Very disciplined. There's an opportunity to steal a point in the last 30 min if they play their cards right. Maybe Salah for the last 15-20 min?
|06/15/2018 - 8:33am||First 30 min from Uruguay…||
First 30 min from Uruguay has been pretty uninspiring. You'd think with Suarez and Cavani that they'd be able to create some more dangerous chances. So far though there's been a lot of bombs from 25-30 yards and a long sends deep into the corners that have proven to be unfruitful.
To Egypt's credit, they are playing disciplined, compact defense and are making life difficult for Uruguay.
|06/15/2018 - 7:54am||You've captured the spirit…||
You've captured the spirit of the tournament nicely.
|06/15/2018 - 7:46am||I already had an avatar, but…||
I already had an avatar, but it let me switch it. I got there by clicking on my name in one of the threads I was posting in like in the image I snagged below.
|06/14/2018 - 9:03am||I'm picking Belgium as a…||
I'm picking Belgium as a darkhorse to win it all. Probably won't happen as they routinely struggle to pull it all together on the biggest stage. Their talent is HUGE though and if they can all play from the same sheet of music I think they could do something special.
Realistically, Germany. That team is stacked.
France will under achieve per usual.
I'm rooting for England because LOL, why not? They can't win, won't win, but I like their style of play and maybe this time, since the pressure is mostly off, they will do something special. Quarter-finals would be a successful tournament for them in my opinion.

Over-exuberance is tolerated. But quit drinking and go to bed already!

You missed the anus part which makes it funny. Geez. Capt'n Obvilicious.

And yet I'm sure it has happened. Also, stop being a douche.

Thanks for sharing this. I watched both videos and found myself thinking that it seems highly unlikely that the brand of football played back then would ever be able to achieve so highly today.
I know we do still play that way, but the sheer brute force Michigan dominated that game and other games of that season with just doesn't seem to be possible anymore. It's much more of a speed game now with little slot bugs and mobile QBs.
I know, I know, Get off my lawn and all that.
the nostalgia bug has bitten me is all I can say.
|06/12/2018 - 7:38am||I'm expecting a HUGE year…||
I'm expecting a HUGE year from #3 this year. Cannot wait to see what this DLine can do to opposing QBs.
|06/11/2018 - 1:27pm||And to take it one step…||
And to take it one step further, I think there would be value in a wider discussion around known bugs, what the guys are tackling to improve the site post go-live etc...
There's lots of chatter by the community and while I can get behind the "mind your own damn business" mindset being a website guy myself, I think that the community has a vested interest in this site and we'd like to know the direction it is going for continuous improvement.
|06/11/2018 - 7:54am||"GET OFF MY LAWN!" they…||
"GET OFF MY LAWN!" they shouted in unison.
|06/11/2018 - 7:53am||The Satanic Verses is a trip…||
The Satanic Verses is a trip. Honestly, I don't think it's my favorite Rushdie book either, though I believe it's the one that got him the most notoriety.
If you want to read Rushdie, I'd recommend 'Shalimar the Clown.' The narrative is a lot less fractured and I think in general it's a better overall story. Just my personal opinion.
|06/10/2018 - 10:22pm||Recently got around to…||
Recently got around to reading The Metamorphosis by Kafka. After a few failed attempts I made it through this time. The whole collection was amazing and you can see where the likes of DFW and other post modernists get their schtick.
I also recently finished The Mars Room by Rachel Kuschner which is a great book about a woman sentenced to life in prison for murdering a stalker.
Last recommendation: Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward. She's a UofM MFA graduate and arguably one of America's most highly touted current literary authors. Highly recommend all of the above.
|06/10/2018 - 8:15am||I am excited to see what…||
I am excited to see what comes from Luigi Vilain this year. Everyone was really high on him before his injury. Let's hope we get another beast mode rush end to help kill some QBs.
|06/09/2018 - 1:11pm||Not a huge surprise for this…||
Not a huge surprise for this kid. Best of luck. Probably thought it was too cold in Michigan after all.

An American Hero!! Ben runs like an insane person so the rest of us don't have to. I salute you!!

It's interesting that the stud recruits we've pulled in (Derrick Green, Kareem Walker) are generally considered guys whose recruiting profile cooled considerably by the time they got on campus. It doesn't make it hurt any less, but it's helpful to at least contextualize that position with the caveat that at least we've gotten good production from other, less touted backs.
|06/07/2018 - 1:56pm||I am a soccer fanatic so I…||
I am a soccer fanatic so I will follow for sure. I think Germany, with Hummel's and Boatang as CBs, stand a great chance at victory. Defense wins championships as they say. Also, a team that can afford to keep Leroy Sane @ home is pretty stacked.
I'll be cheering for England but luck historically frowns on the Three Lions. Can't wait for the time tournament to start.

You can create a shortcut to the site on your phone and put it in the same place as you used to click for the app. Problem solved!!

I'm willing to accept this may be an issue solely with the end user, I just can't figure it out.

I for one am more than happy to relive these days of yesteryear now that we are "effectively" out on the other side with an AD/Coach that get it.
Now let's win some damn football games.

Didn't see this before posting the same (con video clip) above. +1 to you. Great minds etc...

You sir, are a mouthful!

I like this idea of a diversified set of situational players. From Seth's write up the other day about us stockpiling RBs to this 2+ deep defensive front 7, I'm really looking forward to seeing what this team brings in the fall.
Lets keep solving problems with aggression.

Let's not sell short our recent dominance in Reddit CFB RISK and it's important contribution to this most recent jump in standings.

Jabrill Peppers. Denard. A fully competent OLine. MSU losing more often. Charlie Weiss on NDs sideline.

I'd like to take this opportunity to just say that this kind of crap wouldn't get posted if the new site were up and running....
Nevermind, that's not remotely true.

It seems he is destined to be a specialist, but I'd love to see a breakout year from Brian Mone. May be a situation with too much competition from Solomon and Dwumfor, but he's a tank that could cause real problems for offenses with his size and strength.
Lots of mentions for our LT situation so I'll not say LT but on offense, I'd like to see a huge year from Ben Bradeson. He's shown flashes, came in with a lot of promise, now we need him to put it all together and help lead this offensive line to more consistency.
