That "less aggressive defense" would mop the floor with OSU's defenses of the last three years.

Playing flexbone triple-option teams is high variance. You never know what's gonna happen, and our defense has been thoroughly average for years now.

Yeah, a 13-year-old girl - who by all appearances in her interviews is perfectly likable and charming - absolutely wrecking a couple of teams in a mostly boys-only sport, leading to her next start becoming the highest-rated LLWS game ever shown on ESPN, should totally be a non-story. Nothing to see here.

Whoever those people you won $40 from were, you need to remove them from your life.

The only difference being, at least Ohio State didn't get shredded by a Frosh QB in their biggest game and in their bowl.

No, we got shredded by a team that had back-to-back games of rushing for negative yardage last season.

You SEEM to have this overriding opinion that football is essentially legalized criminal behavior.

Essentially, it is. If you did this...

... to somebody walking down the street, your ass would get arrested, and rightfully so.

When I read the report I thought it sounded a lot like the people in charge decided what they wanted to do and then reverse-engineered the reasons. That's looking more and more like the case. This was either a powerful complainant parent who had some major suction with OSU higher-ups, a new President with an overly-zealous PC agenda, or some major ass-covering by the university when threatened with something Title IX-related. Possibly a mixture of all three.

People who write that might as well have a sign around their necks saying "I DO NOT READ."

Comment 29 Jul 2014

I mean, who gives a shit about the difference between "fewer than" and "less than" or further/farther?

I do. And so do a lot of other people. If people want to misuse their mother tongue, by all means, go ahead. The people who know the rules will think less of those people, because they look or sound stupid.

This is a "great example" of "blatant media bias"?

1. Not familiar with The Internet, I take it?

2. If you see "blatant media bias," you're looking for it. It's not there.

Yep. Jozy's absence was one of the keys in the US repeatedly failing to maintain possession when they won the ball back from Belgium. Jozy's a reliable back-to-goal hold-up player who can collect the ball, fight off a challenge, and lay the ball off to midfielder. Dempsey just isn't that player, which raises another issue: Jozy's injury moved several of the US's best players out of their ideal positions. Clint had to try to replicate Jozy's role, and that moved Michael Bradley into having to be a makeshift Dempsey (at which he obviously struggled).

Overall, I think the future is bright. Klinsmann came in promising a (much-needed, IMO) total revamping of the US soccer culture, from youth development all the way up to in-game tactics. Three years in, and you can see the progress. They just need to keep it up and see it through. I believe.
