I think ManU won it with SAF two years later... so big time international is similar.  Klopp is just a great guy, he's energetic, happy and gives good hugs lol.
We also won the CL in 99, and made it to 3 finals in 4 years from 08-11. Won the league when we won the CL in 99 and 08. How'd you do in the league in 05? It really sounds delusional to say that they are similar in big time internationals. It would be like me saying that United were similar to Liverpool in Europe in the late 80s /early 90s because we won the Cup Winners Cup (only the league champions played in the European Cup then).

I think the college comparison is causing too much problems here.   I'll say that ManU is like the Yankees...

Again, that's what UM fans say about Harbaugh (reminds me of the "who's got it better than us?").

Look, they're both lunatics. Different types of lunatics, but lunatics nonetheless. Both have the media slurp them even when they accomplish less than their predecessors.

I really can't say that my heart is broke because we don't have a manager with a worse record than Brendan Rogers had.

Um fans do not. Maybe idiot I'm fans. My siblings are Michigan alums. Assholes they are. Anyway... they totally recognize why I think he sucks. Of course they like him, but they understand. I can't comprehend why you wouldn't like klopp. You're just trying too hard there.

Also Brendan Rogers was given keys to a Ferrari. Klopp got a 96 buick. You're still trying too hard.

It's very shocking that a fan of Team A does not understand why a fan of Team B would dislike a player/coach from Team A. That's got to be something new in sports. Just because your UM family are rational and/or humor you, doesn't mean that they don't cuddle up with a Harbaugh doll at night.

I don't dislike, nor do I like, Klopp more than any other opposing coach. I did say he's a lunatic and the media slurps him unlike anyone else in the league. I do dislike the free pass that the media gives him. Ooh, because he smiles and schpeeks in ze German accent, it's so funny, so let's just forget that he's being just as much of a liar, hypocrite, and excuse maker as every other manager (note that I'm not saying those things are exclusive to Klopp, just that he doesn't get called out for it).

I can't help but think of the parole board in the Simpsons, hearing sideshow Bob explain that his "Die Bart, Die" tatoo is just German for "The Bart, The". The lady on the board says, "No one who speaks German can be a bad person".

The media sucking him off isn't Klopp's fault, but it is a similarity with Harbaugh. As is being a bit crazy. Nothing wrong with that, just a similarity with Harbaugh. That's all.

Says the guys that can't comprehend how anyone, even opposing fans, can't be in love with their team's coach. No blind homerism there.

Interesting that neither of you have disputed that he is crazy or that the media gives him a free pass.

MSU winner 1-0, goal came at 99:29 (silly kind of game clock if you ask me), 7-0 on the season now, ranked #6 (very cool).

MSU Soccer has really hit the B1G time.
Even when talking about Soccer, its derogatory.

But in two other polls, MSU isn't quite near the top. The Spartans are No. 6 in the United Soccer Coaches Poll and No. 9 in the one put out by College Soccer News.
What's the point of even adding the bolded part? Which poll is generally recognized? I have no idea. Congratulations to MSU though for being a pretty solid team.

Yeah, this sounds like college baseball where there are 5-6 polls and none of them really official.

If neither team scores at the end of the second overtime, the game will result in a draw, which would be MSU's first draw of the season.

It's an abomination that they even have overtime in a game that can end in a draw. It's not regular season NCAA hockey or mid 80s-mid 00s NHL fergodsakes.

No idea. I don't think it was like that 25 years ago (I didn't play at State, but would catch a few games), but I don't know when they changed it.

Edit: Misread the question. It's not why doesn't the college game have shootouts, but why do they have OT in the regular season for games that can end in a draw. Typically in soccer, after full time, if it's tied, it ends as a tie. Extra Time (Over time) and a shootout are only used in elimination games like a playoff format, and I'm sure college has it like that for the tournaments. But I've never heard of having Extra Time just to still end the game in a draw.
