    The #usmnt doesn’t play well in standard definition.

    • As a former student-athlete, you are exceptional. As a letterwinner, you are unique. Because of your participation and accomplishments while at Texas, you will always be a part of one of the most prestigious athletics programs in the country. The goal of the T-Association is to maintain contact with all former Texas student-athlete letterwinners and to always acknowledge their dedication to excellence and their contributions to the overall success of UT Athletics.

       

    • All told, the U.S. is 0-7-2 when playing in Costa Rica, including a seven-game losing streak. And the bane for much of its existence was the Estadio Saprissa, with its tight confines, decaying artificial surface, and penchant for fans to hurl projectiles of all shapes and sizes. 
    • “The Costa Rica fans are crazier,” said former U.S. international Thomas Dooley. “Mexico and the U.S. have always been rivals, and they want to win as much as possible. Costa Rica is totally different because they hate you. Whatever they can do to hurt you, that’s what they’re going to do.

    • Much has been made of how the U.S. has eight players on yellow cards heading into Friday’s match. Those players are: Altidore, Michael Bradley, Geoff Cameron, Clint Dempsey, Tim Howard, Fabian Johnson, Matt Besler and Jermaine Jones.
      • “One of the things that the referees have told us is that when these quarterbacks carry out the fakes, they lose their right as a quarterback, a pocket-passing quarterback, the protection of a quarterback,” Matthews said Wednesday on ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike.” “So with that, you do have to take your shots on the quarterback, and obviously they’re too important to their offense. If that means they pull them out of that type of offense and make them run a traditional, drop-back, pocket-style offense, I think that’s exactly what we’re going for. So you want to put hits as early and often on the quarterback and make them uncomfortable.”
