Mexico match was excellent yesterday. Very fast paced and action filled.
Italy/Uruguay projects to be a good match today!

Entertaining 1-0 Costa Rica win. The match knocks out England. First time since 1958 they did not get out of the group stage!

"Worst ump ruling ever" has a new contender!  :-\   BUT it's the replay ump!
R. Martin called for blocking home plate last night on a force play. He caught the ball with one foot on the plate THEN jumped out of the way to avoid contact with a sliding base runner!

Amazing how much differrent soccer is from basketball.

Different????        ;)   
 You win the game by gaining points by placing (by throwing or kicking) a round ball into an opening surrounded by a net played on a rectangular surface (pitch/court)!
Also, players in both games "flop" to attempt to gain advantages!

Does anyone else wonder if we'll see DJ at the 3 this season

I do ..................in a way! That is in some sets I don't think there will be any difference between the 2 and the 3!
A 3 guard offense/defense!

Probably the only interesting story in this year's Open.

I wonder what the final charges/results turn out to be once the big cheeses become involved??

Indeed, good WC so far.   England/Italy match was, as expected, very "tactical."
But I thought England just played too soft in the midfield. I thought they should have pressured the aging Pirlo more often. BUT, this can be easier said than done.

Penn State has Josh Sharma '15, Aaron Falzon '15, Ian Sistare '16 and AJ Brodeur '16 on campus today, per a source.

(we knew this, but a pleasant reminder)

Saw some video on a couple of the kids. Sharma would be a homerun!

OT / World Cup
« on: June 13, 2014, 09:55 AM »
While there was World Cup discussion on another thread I think the topic deserves it's own thread!

This should be a very interesting WC. As they say " It wouldn't be a World Cup without controversy."  First match flop PK was a start.
I would image there may be serious pressure on the refs........................! Nuff said!

Group stage matches sometimes can be underwhelming. It is not uncommon where one squad (or sometimes both) is VERY content in a draw! That is "assure 1 point...........don't risk getting none points! Sometimes this may produce a 0-0 stinker.  Hope this does not happen often much this year.
Today the Netherlands-Spain could be a good one!!

Match was 1-1 at the time in about the 69th-70th minute. A PK kick goal at that time TOTALLY changes the remainder of the match!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The last goal was a counter punch goal where Croatia had sold out to the attack!

NCAA scheduling rules allow teams to play 29 regular season games, or 27 regular season games + an exempt tournament. The maximum number of regular season games is capped at 31

I can't decide whether to laugh or cry!

P.S. Maybe my post belongs in the "union" or "NCAA Reform"  thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know tundra wouldn't like it, but a home 'n' home with Pitt, Temple and Villanova each year would be pretty phenomenal in my book.

I'm shaking just thinking about it!!!!!!!   ;)

I would counter with Point Park, Lock Haven and Philly Textile!

Alvarez is another guy who turned down the guaranteed money early on and will become a FA next year


I don't think he is a FA until after the 2016 season!
