    And for the record, Brown and Dartmouth are in that conference and they aren't real schools...

    Other than that, academically*... maybe not so impressive.

    * I'm sure their admission scores are as wonderful as their orthodontia. Rich parents can afford SAT tutors and, if it comes to that, just paying off the high schools for A's. c.f., University, Harvard

    College soccer is the worst. Itís what happens when a bunch white Americans who think they have better ideas and people blacklisted by the USSF get together and run things.

    I would love to see an NC$$ title winner play a comparably aged team from any soccer country. I'm guessing 7 - nil. It might finally snap the entitlement of that establishment and those repellent parents.

    It would be like watching a Robot Chicken Celebrity Death Match of the Stanford tennis team vs a bunch of Brazilians from the favelas.

    What tier from another country, though? A lot of NCAA players play in the PDL or NPSL in the summer (actually BYU used to have their team play in the PDL rather than against colleges), so you're looking at Tier 3 in the USA. However, due to the way the pyramid works in the US, Tier 3 is also the first level of amateur play. In England, semi-pro doesn't start until Tier 5 and leagues don't appear to be fully semi-pro until Tier 7.

    PDL and NPSL are Tier 4, not 3.

    Considering past results from FIFA U20 World Cups, itís not that big of a gap. Thereís talent, the coaching sucks though.

    The NCAA approves allowing a player to play in 4 games and still have the ability to redshirt.

    Awesome rule change and should work out well at developmental programs in particular. Younger guys will get opportunities to see the field now, get film, etc. without a coach having to worry about burning a redshirt.

    Oh, don't get me wrong. Pedo State (not to mention Holy Mother Church, the Pederast of Christ) richly deserves it hung around their neck for all eternity.

    I was just admiring your deft ninja move. You were halfway back to the dōjō before the head started to slide diagonally off the shoulder.
