Only two I somewhat agree with are CU/Belgium and OSU/France

but not even those really.

Good topic though. Here's a better take:

1) Georgia = England - have won a title, but it has been AGES ago and fans always get their hopes up only to be disappointed.

2) Alabama = Germany - win a lot, not very likable though.

3) Clemson = Brasil - win and can be very entertaining to watch.

We are relatively small compared to other universities? Like Belgium is small but still elite.

The Wisconsin Italy one makes no sense at all.

wut? what a public way to show that you don't know neither sport - football or soccer.

Clemson and Belgium - Belgium's best finish is 3rd. Clemson has 3 championships. Maybe France is our best analog since while there were not a mega power before 1980, they are the new blood with two championships and a runner up as of late (also a complete dark period). But it still does not really match well. No country has only three championships.

LSU might be more like Italy (not Wisc since Italy has won it all recently while wisc last won it when Germans were all strutting around in tall boots in unison- thus Uruguay?)

1) Why force the US women into this? Political reasons? Just make Bama = Brazil or Germany and be done with it for goodness sake.

2) Belgium has never won anything. They've had a golden generation recently and still haven't won any major tournaments. Clemson has 3 titles.

3) Italy has won 4 World Cups and a European championship so why are we comparing them to Wisconsin? Stylistically I kind of get it.. bunch of white guys playing a boring style and trying to grind out results. But one has been very successful for a very long time and the other is Wisconsin.

I do kind of like Argentina - Oklahoma, especially if we look at them over the last decade. Lots of offensive flair and expectations but always falling short at the end against strong competition.

France - Ohio State. Sure, I guess.

I think France - Clemson might be better though because both are relatively new to big time success and both can be entertaining to watch and typically have exciting players.

Pair OSU up with Italy (or Germany if Bama = Brazil) since they've both won for a long time.

at the same time the USWNT is complaining about being underpaid.

200 turnovers every game, because that is what soccer is...run down the field, but turn it over before you get a shot off...about 19 out of 20 times!
