01/02/2017 - 1:01pm First CB to flip

Touch the Banner has flipped their CB for Najee to Michigan. Could this possibly be happening?!?!?! It seems too good to be true.

08/10/2011 - 11:22pm In my opinion, going forward

In my opinion, going forward Klinsmann needs to go to a 4-1-3-1-1 for the games that he wants to be attacking, which based on his history is every game.  The back four is TBD and this is just my opinion on one possible group, and the holding mid can be anyone of Edu/Bradley/Beckerman, then you go Dempsey-Torres-Shea across the mid, Agudelo up top and Donovan sitting just behind in the #10 position, giving him the freedom to roam and make all the plays he is capable of.

08/10/2011 - 10:04pm If Castillo ever gets another

If Castillo ever gets another call up to the USMNT, Klinsmann needs to be fired on the spot.  This guy is pathetic.  His club is probably happy he got called up because he isn't with them playing like trash.  He is so bad at so many aspects of the game, I'm not even going to waste my time posting them all.  Seriously, he may be one of the worst players I have ever seen.

08/10/2011 - 9:38pm Someone please explain to me

Someone please explain to me why Beckerman is on this team?  He is freaking awful.  He doesn't try to win balls back, stands around all the time, and gives the ball up way too easily.  Waste of space out there.

08/10/2011 - 9:30pm Whoever is playing left back

Whoever is playing left back needs to be taken out immediately.  He is geeting us killed.

08/10/2011 - 9:24pm Np, everyone is.

Np, everyone is.

08/10/2011 - 9:22pm Ok this if freaking

Ok this if freaking ridiculous.  Get these kids off of ESPN2, the game is over. 

07/10/2011 - 2:02pm Holy hell what a

Holy hell what a goal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Take that you piece of crap ref, you try to screw us, Brazil plays dirty, and we still get it to penalties.  The soccer Gods need to finish off what they have started.

06/19/2011 - 4:59pm Brian McBride was a fantastic

Brian McBride was a fantastic attack player for the U.S., but he was more of a pure striker and finisher, where as; Dempsey is more of a creative player that comes out of the attacking midfield.

06/19/2011 - 4:47pm People love to build up

People love to build up Donovan, but Dempsey has been more important to the success of this team over the last several years than Donovan has.

06/19/2011 - 4:44pm The rule is one defender plus

The rule is one defender plus the keeper, he was past the keeper which makes it offside.  The linesman got it correct.  Whoever Donovan dropped it to should have teed it up from outside the box.

06/19/2011 - 4:31pm Straight Red there, no

Straight Red there, no question about it.

06/19/2011 - 4:28pm I can see Bradley going

I can see Bradley going defensive way too early with the lead, yet again, and taking off Dempsey for Edu and pushing his kid further forward in attack.

EDIT: I'm happy to be wrong, as it appears Landon is being brought on.  We need to keep attacking against Jamaica.

06/19/2011 - 4:14pm GET THE **** IN

GET THE **** IN JERMAINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  What a tremendously fortunate deflection.

06/19/2011 - 4:00pm Sacha's service on corner's

Sacha's service on corner's has been dreadful and he has been non-existent with the exception of a couple of attacking moves.  I'd take him off at the half.

06/19/2011 - 3:23pm He can always move Dempsey up

He can always move Dempsey up top and bring on another midfielder, either Donavon or Freddy in an attacking role from the mdfield if we need a goal.

06/19/2011 - 3:08pm That's actually a good sign

That's actually a good sign for American soccer.  That means we have more and more players playing in the leagues over seas, which are quite frankly, better than MLS.  If we are ever going to compete with the best in the world, we need nearly every member of our Men's senior national team, to be playing top flight football in Europe.

06/19/2011 - 2:54pm I hate to say this, but I

I hate to say this, but I actually hope we do lose so that we finally send Bradley packing.  His style of play may have worked in MLS, but it will never succeed at the international level.  Gulati needs to swallow his pride and sack his golden boy Bradley, and then admit he doesn't know everything about the game and hand complete roster control over to Jurgen Klinsman in order to bring him on board.  Is it really that big of a problem to Gulati that the manager of the senior team have control of the rosters at the younger levels as well as the senior squad?  That's all Klinsman wants in order to take the reigns, but Gulati is too stubburn of a mule to give it to him.

06/19/2011 - 2:50pm When is Bradley going to give

When is Bradley going to give up on the Kljestan experiment?  The guy just can't play at the international level.  I would honestly rather see Freddy in there than Sacha.

06/19/2011 - 1:59pm If this staff truly wanted

If this staff truly wanted Pittman, he would already be a part of this class.  Wormley appears to be all blue, and the only other DE options the staff would go over their expected numbers for are Spence and Washington.

06/05/2011 - 11:26pm It actually corresponds to a

It actually corresponds to a 1386.  The 1900 level on the new scoring system is equal to 1380 in the old scoring system.  Either way, it's around the 90th percentile, which is damn impressive.

05/10/2011 - 7:30pm Tom, what did Shane mean when

Tom, what did Shane mean when he said, "Hoke went crazy"?  Did the Incredible Hoke come out?

Not to get biblical, but it was Noah that load animals 2 x 2, not Moses.

05/07/2011 - 6:01pm They just keep rolling in. 

They just keep rolling in.  Just like Noah, they come in pairs.

The newest member of the 4 star brigade.  Welcome aboard Mario.

Was in town Friday with his dad.  Left AA Friday evening.  TomVH said he will have a recap of his visit reaction in the weekly update, but Dunn doesn't want a lot of information out there because of his current commitment to osu.  He, and his dad, are playing it very close to the vest.

05/04/2011 - 1:49pm I already posted a link above

I already posted a link above to an article about how this will affect the DL, if indeed there is a lockout in the NBA next year.

05/04/2011 - 12:40pm No it won't.  Here is an

No it won't.  Here is an article from ESPN that discusses the situation:

05/04/2011 - 12:38pm The only way this one makes

The only way this one makes sense to me is if he has a promise from a team that they will take him in the first round.  Otherwise, I don't get it at all.  I hope Trey comes in ready to contribute, because we are going to need him in a major way next year.

04/20/2011 - 12:08pm That's not true.  A lot of

That's not true.  A lot of people had Arnett going to the Vols for a while before his announcement.  Sparty supporters were just refusing to believe the writing on the wall, as they thought they had him locked up long before his announcement.

04/19/2011 - 2:20am Good stuff Tom.  Thanks for

Good stuff Tom.  Thanks for the update.  Nothing wrong with bringing in yet another top 10 player at his position.

04/19/2011 - 2:20am I'm going to guess it is

I'm going to guess it is through the 7 on 7 scene.

04/18/2011 - 2:28am Good stuff Tom, thanks.  I

Good stuff Tom, thanks.  I look forward to the further updates throughout the week.

04/17/2011 - 2:50pm As others have said, when

As others have said, when Pike pops everyone is going to know it.  He's going to turn into the biggest recruiter for whatever school he commits to and wants to bring a monster class with him.  He won't be silent.

04/13/2011 - 2:39am First post here, long time

First post here, long time reader, I'm glad to see the quality of visitors coming up this Saturday.  Getting the Big 3 on campus, yet again, is a big plus and the more the visit, the better it has to look for Michigan.  Getting guys like Diamond and Funchess on campus for the spring game is also huge, because seeing the new style of play, both offensively and defensively could go a long way with "toss up" guys.  The strides this new staff has made in recruiting is tremendous, and let's just hope we continue to see the strides progess into leaps and bounds come signing day.
