      Meaningless. Someone calculate points per game and get back to me. Or don't, I don't care.
      Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

        Guess we're only going to score 50 goals next year.

          Well, if all of our wins are 2-1 or 1-0 (and we get shut out in all of our losses), I think we can make that work for us. See, Seth knew what he was doing all along!

            That is rather poor logic.

              The English language is poorer for a lack of a proper subjunctive mood. Had my statement, indirectly quoting Schott, been in German it would have been in the subjunctive.

                Well, we've already got one poster who thinks he's Canadian when he's not, so if you want to go ahead and post in German I don't think anyone's going to stop you.

                    IIRC, English does have a subjunctive: "If I were you" not "If I was you" is proper, no? It's just harder to recognize.

                        It does, but its use is limited. "If I were you" is correct.

                          That's the same mistake that President Kennedy made. It's "Ich bin Engineer" (or Ingenieur). (The last 3+ years of classes must be good for something.)

                              Here's my calculation - sounds like someone didn't have such a great recruiting year (oh heresy that couldn't be the case) or perhaps he forgot to give the freshmen any significant playing time.

                                The class was perfectly fine. The latter is also accurate, but does not have anything to do with recruiting, but rather an in-game coach (understanding the fact the 18 you select you can't change mid-game).
