re: Tour De France 2019: Stage 15 » Limoux › Foix (185k) - The411
You are correct. French TV was a little too concerned with Bardet and not Teuns pulling away. Teuns was 949-1 to win the Tour wish I had put down 20 bucks. Don’t think he’s going to win it but he’s a good TT’er and can certainly climb. ...

re: Tour De France 2019: Stage 15 » Limoux › Foix (185k) - The411
Depends on the race you are watching. The easiest to watch and understand are mountain stages and essentially you are looking to see who is breathing the hardest and who cannot keep up with attacks. Sprint stages are more about seeing who has position and who gets boxed in as position is king...

re: The real problem with the USMNT - The411
Athleticism matters but it’s secondary. The closest analogy is a baseball player. Michael Jordan amazing athlete shite baseball player. Same thing happens in soccer. It would be nice for US soccer to have first crack to develop athletes to filter out who can play and who can’t, but the techni...

re: Berhalter Is A Genius - The411
Yep, it’s these types of moves that scream complete mismanagement. I think the bigger problem is that USSF position is an elected position. What has been killing US Soccer is the parasitic relationship with SUM and MLS. Cordeiro is basically a puppet for those two organizations and let’s thei...

re: People that complained about Michael Bradley - The411
If he is that’s a bad sign because he’s far past his prime and I think people vastly overrate the apex of his career. He’s like a destitute man’s Axel Wisel. ...

re: Landon Donovan, next USSF President? - The411
Sunil is a freakin cancerous sock puppet. USSF president needs to be a paid position and they need a Bill Moos equivalent candidate. They also need to get rid of the election process and hire like any normal job. ...

No clue if he has the aptitude. I'm guessing probably not and it has nothing to do with his soccer experience....

re: people actually think not qualifying is gonna be that negative towards our future chances? - The411
You can't employ the same systems as the big four leagues because the U.S. (Canada for hockey) doesn't monopolize the talent. That's why a closed system will ultimately without organized lower divisions gathering 80-90% of the talent. It's not possible for the academies of 28 teams to gather more...

re: people actually think not qualifying is gonna be that negative towards our future chances? - The411
The NCAA reform is a non starter. By the time a kid gets to college it's too late. The biggest villains here are USSF for allowing a closed system. A closed system will never work in soccer. It works in the other big four sports because there are zero professional leagues that are competitive aro...

re: ***GUNNER KIEL (pronounced keel) (#1 QB recruit in nation) COMMITS TO LSU*** - The411
Kiel is massively overrated. Happens every year. There's always a few guys that the analysts get a massive hard for becuase they have great physical tools but don't have the it factor that separates the superstars. He was playing against piss poor competition in Indiana. The guy didn't even make the...

re: Tressel punishment was too light - The411
Remember Tressel's punishment is sel-imposed by OSU. The other thing is that if all this is corroberated then Tressel comitted fraud and he and more likely Ohio St. could be held liable for tortuious action from the first school left out of the BCS. The NCAA has to come down harder on OSU than...

re: Discussion Thread for McClover/Keys allegations and purported HBO story - The411
No the NCAA rule on statute of limitations reads similarly to how legal statute of limitations laws read. If something is obscured the statute of limitations does not begin to toll until the obscured knowledge becoems public. The reason is that schools self-report themselves. A school could elect...

re: If you were an NFL team, and you needed a QB.. - The411
You don't Cam Newton because he's played one year of CFB, doesn't do pre-snap reads, plays in the spread, has questionable footwork, and from what I've seen hasn't made NFL throws into tight spaces. Newton has a lot of physical gifts becuase playing QB in the NFL requires accuracy and the ability...

re: Cecil Newtons unending church "funding" hunt from 2008-2010 - The411
I rather doubt that Newton turned over his tax records seeing as the NCAA has no authoritative legal power and tax records require either his (Cecil's) permission to release or a subpoena, a warrant, or judge's order to be made available....

re: Was there this much animosity last year? - The411
No, but frankly Suh and Gerhart were much more deserving candidates and Ingram didn't even finish top 10 in any NCAA kept statistical category. Gerhart had 130 yards and and 4 tds against his rival Ingram had 30 yards and 0 tds ... Suh's stats line was better than that of most team's [b]...
