Why USA vs Iran World Cup match is about more than just soccer: Peeling back the many layers of a massive game

+

When Cobi Jones took the field with 10 other members of the United States men’s national team on that June day in 1998, it was one of a record-breaking 164 times he represented his country in a soccer game, but it was entirely different than all the rest. It was a more consequential game than most, because it came in a World Cup, and such opportunities are rare. There was more to this one, though. It was a meeting between the United States and Iran. Sometimes when there is athletic competition between nations, the nations can sort of get in the way, no matter how hard the athletes might try to focus on sport. "You think first and foremost about the soccer — the match that was at hand," Jones told The Sporting News from Qatar, where he is working as a game analyst for Fox Sports’ telecasts of the World Cup. "Obviously, there was underlying tension during that time between the United States and Iran, and we knew there was a whole lot involved with it. "But when you boil it down, it was just what was going to be happening on the field." In this blog post, we'll tell you everything you need to know about How to watch 2022 Mosconi Cup live

Berhalter denies Gio Reyna conspiracy claims as USA-Iran match approaches

+

Any hopes that Gregg Berhalter’s United States team could stick to sports on the eve of their win-or-go-home game against Iran at the World Cup were dramatically swept aside on Monday when the thorny geopolitical underpinnings of the match exploded to the fore during a tense half-hour news conference. But even as Berhalter parried a series of provocative questions from Iranian media invoking US immigration policy, inflation rates and school shootings, and the 23-year-old squad captain Tyler Adams was called upon to answer for America’s centuries-old legacy of inequality and racial discrimination, both men remained laser-focused on the task at hand.

Ole Miss enters top 10 after massive win over Kentucky

+

Waking up this morning, my first thought was for a glass of water - then a Bloody Mary. What a weekend to be an Ole Miss Rebel. The AP top 25 poll released Sunday afternoon featured a top 10 full of undefeated teams, and Ole Miss came in at number nine nationally. Ole Miss conquered a very determined Kentucky squad on Saturday, 22-19, behind a rushing attack and staunch defense in a scoreless fourth quarter from both teams. The Rebels are now No. 9 in the Associated Press poll, which according to some math I just did on a bar napkin means only eight teams are considered better than Ole Miss - pretty good! Alabama claimed the top spot in the poll overcoming Georgia by a couple points in the poll. The Bulldogs have struggled in consecutive weeks against Kent St. and Missouri and seem to be losing the faith of the media as the best team in the nation. The Crimson Tide rolled through Arkansas in Fayetteville this weekend and covered the spread. Tennessee notched a number eight ranking with the Rebels right behind at number nine. Kentucky fell six spots to number 13, and then Mississippi State and LSU entered the top 25 at 23 and 25 respectively.
