"OSU just needs to win its damn games. That's it." Truer words have rarely been spoken.

Your position may not conform to the prevailing opinion on this site, but you do raise a valid point. For what it's worth, I do not believe your comment should be downvoted. You are right in your assumption that I for my sake would like to support the US team because it represents my country. You may not agree, but I think I can do this while also regarding Solo with the severe criticism that she deserves. Ultimately, I hope you do watch the game, because it should be a great one, regardless of who wins.

I would be stunned if it went down any other way. Abby has a very strong aerial game, however, and would be dangerous especially in set pieces. I would say sub her in at about the 60 or 65 minute mark. Fatigue would not be an issue, even if the game proceeds into extra time.

This game is 50-50. It will depend on who is better prepared. Germany has dominated opposition that did not have a sound strategy (e.g. Sweden) and struggled against the teams that did. The French team did an excellent job of not allowing the German side to get into rhythm at all and nearly pulled it off. Of course, the German team did not break under exceptional pressure in that game either. And Barthusiak will be back to stabilize the defense a bit more. On the US side, it appears that the team is coming together at the right time. Should be a good game either way with either side representing a worthy finals participant.

It is as I have said before. If parents take over their childrens' recruitment, they have an obligation to handle it responsibly. In that case, the parent has to think carefully and maintain a professional nature. TTUN appears to have taken the "do anything for the appearance of success" road, and an ethical approach does not appear to be a part of their philosophy. Their recruiting antics and support of criminal athletes like their former punter or Lewin should serve to disuade those potentially interested.

The Chinese team cannot match the USA in athleticism and overall ball handling. The USA will win this game. The next game against Germany or France? Well, that one might be a wee bit more difficult.

Happy for Devin. Next great Buckeye on the way!

Comment 24 Jun 2015

I am sorry for Lou Holtz. The most important thing is that he is not hurt. I am thankful for that.

Comment 24 Jun 2015

Agree. Considering TTUN's generally highly unethical recruiting practices (awkward hiring policies, negative recruiting, oversigning) and a long track record of failure at least since 2000, any TTUN fan would be well advised to keep very quiet for now. Alas, I am not so naive to believe that that advice will be heeded

I am very happy to see 247 finally acknowledge Cooper's great skill. To me, they tend to emphasize size a bit too much and I think they may have been reluctant to upgrade his rating because they feel he is about 1 or 1.5 inches too short for "ideal size" for a DE. Cooper has dominated recently and it is good to see that 247 now seems prepared to honor his work. Cooper is a great recruit for us!

I agree with you on the first 4. Those were awesome. Songs like Whiplash, Creeping Death, Battery and Damage, Inc. are on my mobile even today. After that, to me anyway, the rage, power and raw sound simply vanished. It is something I have scratched my head over quite a lot.

Comment 15 Jun 2015

There is also a lot to say about "selling out every seat", to be sure. Instead of "selling out", maybe I should say they forgot their roots as a thrash metal band. To this day, I still really like the early classics like Whiplash and Creeping Death. Great motivating songs when training especially.

To me Metallica sold out commencing with the Black Album. Lost all respect for them as a band then even though I still respect their older work. While Megadeath experimented with different ideas (e.g. Countdown to Extinction and Youthanasia), they essentially remained true to their brand thoughout the ages. There is a lot to be said about that.
