  1. Gio Reyna made his first bench for Dortmund’s first team. My guess is Dortmund sell Sancho in the January transfer window so Reyna will be training with the first team over winter and be on the first team rest of the season.
  2. Pulisic has scored in the previous two EPL games giving him 5 goals in the previous 3. Has been in excellent form after a very rocky start. Yedlin scored as mid table Newcastle took down Bournemouth. He’s been in pretty good form as well but still lacks on the defensive side. Could be used as a RM in the NT. Emmanuel Sabbi has scored 3 goals in 3 games for Danish Superliga side Hobro. Uly Llanez has 10 goals and 2 assists in 8 games for Wolfsburg’s u19. Probably needs to be called up to Wolfsburg II. With the upcoming international break we will be playing Canada 11/15 and Cuba 11/19 for Nations League. We will need to beat both and have a higher score differential than Canada to advance. Both Timothy Weah and Tyler Adams are still out and expected to resume club play shortly after the break.
  3. Finally some good news. Pulisic scored his first goal of the EPL. Followed by 2 more for a hat trick. Also Sergino Dest chose the USMNT over the Netherlands.
  4. And the post game dip Kellogg had in would’ve made Frost proud.
  5. Turnovers IMO have been one of the biggest hindrances for us this year. Through 5 games last year we had 10. That’s not good. Through 5 games this year we’ve had 14! I don’t have the time but it feels like a good chunk of those have come on our side of the field. Throw in AM’s slump and no Pickering and that’s been the story of our team so far this year. Defense has been much better outside of 4th quarter Colorado and osu. Offense put the D in bad positions late in the game against Colorado and couldn’t put the game out of reach when they had plenty of chances to. Edit- 14 turnovers this year not 15. Tied for 2nd most turnovers lost.
  6. Wisconsin begs to differ. Tennessee has had great recruiters in their past and look where they are.
  7. Give Frost Suh, Amukamara, Asante, Hagg, and Dillard on defense. That’s just the guys drafted. It’s leaving off guys that were 2nd team all big 12. Way to completely ignore my entire point.
  8. Solich inherited a team coming off a national championship and Pelini inherited a team that had 12 future NFL draftees in his first 3 years.
  9. Ya know, I was more nervous when we were up 10 than when we were down 3.
  10. Martinez had a really poor game. A busted coverage early and a couple Washington catch and runs really made his stats look way better than his performance. He’s holding the ball way too long. First half the pass protection held good enough to mask his slow decision making. Second half they were able to add pressure.
  11. Mexico-3 US-0 Same old crap from Berhalter. Starts Zardes/Trapp. Can’t handle a press and wants to play long ball out of the back even though that’s a weakness in his players. Midfield gets overmatched and we have pretty much zero good chances at goal. Don’t see Berhalter lasting another year.
  12. Could you add Mo Washington to the poll?
  13. If you’re UNI I have no idea why you don’t go for 2 in 2OT. Your offense just scored it’s first touchdown of the game and all you need is a couple yards to win it.
  14. Again though they play South Carolina every year. Either way they play 9 P5 teams same as the B1G. Yeah the ACC is pretty mediocre but FSU and Miami are big enough schools that they’ll always have good teams on paper; they just need to find good coaches.
  15. Since 2008 Clemson has played one of Alabama, TCU, Auburn, Georgia, Notre Dame, and Texas A&M in their non con every year. That’s on top of playing South Carolina yearly. They’re definitely not afraid of scheduling big name schools.
  16. Hey now Jurgens threw a couple deep balls.
  17. SDSU 2019 B1G West champs.
  18. Just a couple updates on the USMNT player pool. Chris Gloster and Alex Mendez transferred to PSV who is in the Europa League. Lots of hype around Gio Reyna. Very possible he sees first team minutes by the end of the year. Sergino Dest made his first Champions League start for Ajax the other day as they advanced to the group stage. Seems he’ll be getting a lot of PT this season which is great for an 18 year old. Champions League group stage draws were announced and Chelsea (Pulisic), Lille (Weah), and Ajax (Dest) are all in the same group so that should be fun to watch. USMNT has friendlies against Mexico 9/6 and Uruguay 9/10. Edit- Mendez transferred to Ajax. 18 year old Richard Ledezma who plays CM transferred to PSV.
  19. I feel like the coaches probably know enough about the situation already to make a calculated decision. I would imagine most Husker fans would react the same in that situation as most non Husker fans did in the current situation. See a player is convicted of CP and say he should be kicked off the team. Reading headlines doesn’t give you the whole story though.
  20. When you say league you’re referring to the USSF not the NWSL right? I can’t speak on coaches and have stated I believe they deserve better transportation and better practice pitches, but as far as per diems and sponsor appearances why didn’t they negotiate for that in the 2017 CBA? FWIW it used to be equal in 2015 until the men renegotiated. I had assumed the women had dropped that beings the USWNTPA bargained for likeness rights for sponsorships that don’t compete with USSF sponsors. Essentially meaning the women could market themselves. Also don’t think I would say that. In a similar time frame the men’s side has been playing above their comparable talent level most years. 2017 just makes people forget 2002, 2009, 2010, 2014, and 2016 ever happened.
