How do you screw up USC recruiting? Hi, five-star, Aunt Becky committed fraud to get her kid in here, wanna come?
Our other sponsors are also key to all of this: Franz is gonna put them to sleep like they're staying the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, put Michigan in their heads so bad they'll have to join the University of Michigan Alumni Association, give them such bad rheumatics they'll have to call Ann Arbor Elder Law, bust into their lane so often Michigan Law Grad will have to get him out of there, put up so many highlights Human Element will have to a make a website to host them, deliver so many daggers Phil Klein Insurance Group will have to originate a crushed souls policy, be so money from distance he'll need Peak Wealth Management to invest it, live in the corner so much HomeSure Lending will have to help him take out a mortgage there, and…sorry I can't think of a metaphor for Fuegobox, can you?

You have to understand, we didn't think basketball was going to be all that good this year. Now we're all about the Franzening. We do some minutes pie: Is he a 2 or a 4? Or is Livers a 4? Who are the five? Pushes this team from one worrying about dropping some games to the decent middle of the Big Ten to pretty confident they can get past them. Iowa plus defense. Wagner probably taking the Iggy role. Can't take an injury, but that's true for all teams in basketball.

Concerts we went to that date us. Also: running backs, receivers shaped like running backs, and receivers shaped like running backs who can play outside. Speed in Space. Watch the Top Billin' video on Blake Corum! If you were ordering off the offensive tackle men you would choose Jeffrey Persi's traits. Seth tries to argue the near five-star is underrated because Notre Dame and Michigan found him. St. Frances owes us. Drevno's into ankles like a character out of Wheel of Time. Fun with Loy.
3. Recruitaplijhbfafha: Defense (Alsø alsø wik)

Going Greg Frey route on the defensive line too. With McGregor in the class you don't need Anchors but they're getting a couple of Carlo Kemp molds. Our favorite linebacker in the class is the best guy to play running back (Wisconsin and Stanford wanted him). When recruiting a Viper you want a guy they call "Apache" who gets compared to the Tasmanian Devil. A segue into Oliver Martin and how to transfer. Morant: not the top safety in the country to anyone except 24/7, straight-line speed might be a question. Started as a linebacker then shifted to corner.

Seth picked the wrong time to try to become a US soccer fan. Women's soccer is great for the cultural things and the "suck it get a Title IX" thing but kinda feels like being an Alabama fan. A philosophical discussion over what happened in the Gold Cup Final: not talented enough to win when their plan that works doesn't actually pay off. Second half just can't get the ball because they're not talented enough. If you pay attention to the meta game, they were better than Mexico, but randomness is part of the sport.
