Watching Atletico is like watching paint dry.  I know it's a viable strategy and all but this must be what it was like to watch the 4 corners offense back before the shot clock in basketball.  But they beat the two best teams in the world to get to this point, you have to give them credit for it.

The "Rebellious Long Hair at a Catholic School" look.  Alternatively titled the "Far Less-Cool and Still Shorter John Lennon Look."

And if anyone has been following the race between him and Goff to be the first QB (and now first player) selected, the consensus has always seemed to be that Wentz needs more development and Goff is the better QB today, though Wentz may have greater potential down the line.  That would seem to indicate to me that Wentz could've used better/more coaching, otherwise he'd be the runaway favorite for #1.

I fail to see your point.  Recruiting rankings don't matter when it comes time to play the game.  AJ just didn't contribute much to the team.  He shot miserably (32%!), couldn't finish inside because of his size and his A:T was just 1.6:1.  None of that is so outstanding that we should be as upset as you are that he's gone.  Sure, he was quick and he tried hard.  But same with Shannon Scott, and AJ wasn't ever going to be better than him IMO, and that's not saying a lot for Harris.  While JUCO competition obviously isn't B1G play, this guy did some very good things that translate well, especially his rebounding for a guard.  And of course that doesn't even include his good volume shooting.  If you make 45% from over 200 attempts, you're a heck of a shooter.

Anything that doesn't involve Michael Orozco.  I don't get Klinsmann's fascination with him, he's terrible.  Seriously, though, I think Klinsy should go with the old guard for the most part:

Guzan

Yedlin Cameron Gonzo Castillo

Beckerman Bradley

Zardes Dempsey Bedoya

Wood

In an ideal world Jozy would be fit and in form and I'd have him up top.  I think part of the reason these small Central American teams give us so much trouble is that we're too used to the "defend and counter" strategy, so when we see a lot of the ball we struggle to break teams down.  Consequently, while I think Wood is a very good player and he can do some special things (may even end up better than Jozy), but for the way we play the best at the moment, we really need Jozy's ability to hold up play and allow Dempsey, Bradley, and the wings to transition into attack with him.  We haven't gotten the beautiful, attacking football we were promised from Juergen, but by and large we had gotten results with our tried-and-true tactics.  That seemed to come to a halt at the Gold cup, and if Juergen loses another of these last 3 games or, god forbid, fails to qualify, his job has to be on the line.  The way this team has been playing it wouldn't stand a chance in the Hex.

I would love to get there, but sadly I haven't yet.  And I used to play NHL 2k7 religiously with my roommates, and Iginla was unstoppable.  The Flames were a lot of fun back then.

Piggybacking here, where do you keep your old Jerome Iginla jersey?

11388 / 83  That is what you stand at right now HS/DV-wise.  I lived at 138 Oakland when I was at OSU.  I used to work at The Thurman Cafe, which is at 183 Thurman Ave.  So I guess what I have to say is... what is your favorite comedy movie from the 90s, and why is it both Ace Venturas?

Comment 12 Mar 2016

Care to explain? Or just make blanket statements that don't seem to make much sense in the context of this team (primarily it's youth).

Comment 10 Mar 2016

Set up for easy final 4's? Seriously?  That Kentucky team could have been a 2 seed and somehow got stuck on the 4 line.  We also had a great Syracuse team and North Carolina as the 3 and 2, respectively.  That had to be one of the toughest brackets ever.  That Wichita team, the one that made the final 4 and started the next year with 30 some wins in a row was a great team.  The Tennessee game, we got hacked to death, and that was already an overachieving team to begin with.  And it's not like Tennessee were a bunch of scrubs, they were ranked 15th.  It's a tournament and sometimes bad things happen since it's just a one-off.  Any given Sunday, if you will.  Were those results disappointing?  Yes, they were.  Well, 2 of them were.  I was thrilled with that Elite 8 run on a team whose second best player was LaQuinton Ross.  I thought that was one of Thad's better coaching jobs.
