To be fair, only one of those Rose Bowls was really earned, and they lost that one to TCU.  Only someone like Bert could ride that wave of success.

i definitely think both methods of determining a champion (playoff vs. the regular season champ) have merit and I guess I don't really have a preference either way, my point was primarily that the OPs logic in arguing against allowing teams who lose in the regular season to advance was inconsistent and that we embrace tournament style championships in American sports.  Either way, both methods are used in various soccer leagues and/or tournaments and the OP arguing against the mechanism of advancement in the World Cup is not really a rational argument for his dislike of soccer.

If this was for the championship, I might agree with some of the things you said.  However, given that this is the effective "weed-out" phase and we did what we had to do to not get weeded out, something that we've had a historically hard time doing, it is pretty exciting.  Just because the US isn't OMGTHEBESTINTHEWORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at something doesn't mean that thing is bad.  I'm not traditionally a soccer fan, and I love both American football and basketball, but I do find it exciting to watch a sport where there isn't a minute-long stoppage every 5 seconds of game clock or free throws every time an offensive player breathes in the lane.

All the world cup games so far have been on watchespn.com for free, no cable/satellite login required, so I would imagine that today would be the same

Even delicious ice cream?  Come on man, high school sports rivalries can only go so far... (I'm assuming that's what this is about, since your profile says you're from Massillon)

Obviously this is an ancillary concern, and I am way more interested in what this new defense will mean for the buckeyes in terms of winning games in the fall, but is there any concern that playing a simplified defense would decrease the NFL stock of our defensive players?

I know some people would generally consider "aggrieved" par for the course for DJ, but bashing on holidays and parties? Come on, man!

a healthy austin, a gordon fresh off suspension and trying to redeem himself, and jordan cameron... that could be a lot of fun to watch.

That way Urban can swim, eat burgers and get drunk while the campers camp and his underlings coach. 

That's what the Olentangy is for, right?
