I'm betting that kids from Japan have been playing together for years and the US team was picked 2 weeks ago.
The score looks like the Under Armour game.

I’m betting it’s the better dorms and facilities that the Japanese players have.

We shouldn't have to send anyone worth a chit. IMG's third string should be able to hang 50 on these punks.
Well, it appears they’re probably all players that couldn’t get a scholarship anywhere. Basically a bunch of young Al Bundys.

We should be recruiting Japanese high schools for the O & D lines.

...and we should make all SEC refs wear those Bushido kimonos during the games. That way they'd have to swear to a code of honor and commit Seppuku on the field when they violate the code as determined by Gator fans (seppuku is also called harakiri--a form of Japanese ritualistic suicide by disembowelment).

It never ceases to amaze me the variety of topics I gain knowledge on from GC.

My God, This is unbelievable. Although, I had no idea we had a "National" football team. Not even sure what the IFAF ....is.
America loses to Japan, 41-20 in the semifinals.
WTF, Did we hire Napier to coach the National team or something???

Japan Beats US in Football
Neither of the two QBs on that US squad were ranked by 247 or signed a scholarship anywhere. I suspect the entire team is the same. Ridiculous.

I guess the question is, where did Japan come up with a team that even knows basic Football fundamentals? Talent?
From where?

Even a team of unknowns from the US, where I would assume kids have been playing "Tackle" football since they were 4-6 years old, should demolish a team from Japan, or Canada for that matter.

What rules were the Canadians using? Did they have 5 guys in motion at the snap of the ball?

I was wondering if Japan had a bunch of sumos on the lines of scrimmage, but they looked more like samurais. The US had a bunch of dough boys.

How many of the Japanese players have black fathers? We never get a close look at them. It could be a team of Hines Ward wannabes for all we know.

Jesse James Palmer wants to give you this rose for recognizing that they actually play football in Canada (albeit 7 on 7).
Alex.
Im surprised he isnt dancing or baking cakes.

In fact, I suspect we need a rule to never mention this Palmer guy again and pretend he was never a Gator.

They were saying on the radio this afternoon that Todd Grantham was coaching the USA team.
