Re: 2022 is a long way away USA Soccer Thread

After the last 2 friendlies 1.) Olympic team could be VERY Fun..if those players can get released to qualify or even play the tournament. And there are some young guns behind them who will be pushing for that team too. 2.) If you are an MLS MNT member...you should be worried about getting an invitat...

Re: Television (no longer temporary)

Interested in the new HBO doc "Cost of Winning". About St. Francis' football team in Baltimore. This is the team that none of the private schools would play so they won the title. Watched all 4 episodes. As with things that take place a year or more back, it is interesting to see where these kids a...

So they let Reyna take the dangerous free kick. Passing has been nice, but speedy counters are trouble and that is what the US will face in qualifications.

Re: NCAA Basketball - 2020 Offseason

It is slightly crazy that we are 10 days from the start of the season and yet teams don't have finalized schedules. For example the Terps have ODU on the 25th and Clemson (ACC-B1G game) listed. Also signing day was pretty quiet. Terps picked up 3 4 stars. Duke looks to have built a nice class (kid f...
