The U.S. U-20 team just got a big win over Columbia in the round of 16 the night before as well. The future is looking bright for the USMNT.

I have always loved playing and watching football, but I would go with soccer. There is so much that soccer has to offer at the highest level...the World Cup, the Olympics, professional leagues and even international friendly matches. You could find yourself playing all over the world against the best in the world, not just for money, but for pride and the chance to represent your country. Also, there is so much excitement recently in the U.S. and it would be great to be a part of it. I know there are many people who don't get the "soccer" thing, but I played from an early age and loved playing it at every stage.

I'd like to see Vitor get a finish but doesn't seem likely. If DC is smart he will keep his fingers as far away from Rumble's eyes as possible, all it takes is one eye poke and he'll have no chance at a win.

I always hated it when I would see ND and ttun hockey and lax teams with the traditional football helmet design but see us with plain scarlet or silver helmets. I think ALL of the sports that wear helmets should have the same look as the football helmets.

I wouldn't say I like it, but it's definitely better than E. Washington's red field.

That Graham Couch guy is a complete douche. I can almost guarantee a HUGE number of those in attendance were families who normally wouldn't be able to afford a game at the Shoe. I know that was the case for me, my kids were so excited to be going to an Ohio State "game" with daddy and I was glad to make it happen for them.

Awesome story, as I was walking through the parking lot outside the Shoe after leaving the spring game, I see an older gentleman looking for his car. He has one of those sideline/press pass lanyards on and I think to myself, "That guy kind of looks like Earle Bruce." Then I hear him talking to who I assume was his son and grandson(?) and now I'm thinking, "This guy SOUNDS like Earle Bruce." Now I'm kind of heading towards this guy as my wife and kids are wondering what I'm doing. So I just go ahead and approach him and say "Excuse me, but are you coach Bruce?" He said that he was and shook my hand and then asked me where I was from. I told him I was from Fremont, Ohio in which he said was great and reminded me he coached at Sandusky which was our biggest rival. I told him it was nice to meet him and went on my way, but just thought it was awesome how he was willing to stop and talk to some random fan who just approached him in the parking lot.

About 2 hours to bring my daughter and son to their first experience at the Shoe. They are 7 and 5 so hopefully they don't get too restless and want to leave early.

I totally thought Glenn was going to get killed off when that whole thing started in the woods. I was already imagining Maggie having a mental break down after finding out.
