W&L men finished 2nd in golf and took the individual title.

or if you're Washington & Lee and the new Sewanee coach lets his players run through your warmups, you run up the score for a different reason...  ;)

Yeah. That wasn't real bright. But to be fair, W&L played 3 qbs, had 11 players take a carry, and had 32 different players get or assist on a tackle. The Generals emptied the bench on both sides of the ball, which is how Sewanee got 14 points in the 4th quarter.

How Lalas has stuck around, in as many roles as he's stuck around, this long will forever be a mystery to me.

Uggh.  Toronto lost the CONCACAF Champions Cup on penalties last night. Lost 2-1 at home, beat Chivas 2-1 away, lost 4-2 on penalties. MLS is getting closer, but just not quite there yet. Toronto was a team that was built to compete at that level. But they have sacrificed the early part of the MLS schedule to try and win a spot at the Club World Cup and still came up just short.

A few more years, a bit more depth and money spent on that depth, and MLS will be consistently competitive with the LigaMX teams if they choose to be. The problem is what it sacrifices on the other side. Toronto's 1-4 start to the MLS season is indicative of the problem. I have no doubt they will climb the table now that they are done with the Champions League, but there just isn't enough depth in the MLS teams to do both right now. Red Bulls, who went out in the Champions League semis, had the same problem. They were throwing almost a complete second team out there in the first weeks of MLS.

Money and development. I'm a huge believer that the MLS academies, combined with club owned and directed USL teams, are going to pay off in player quality. It just takes time. The combination should also be the death knell of college soccer as a primary provider of professional players.

Here's my question. How does this actually change the amount of contact for the 20 guys who are neither the kicker nor the receiver? The 10 on the kicking team are still crashing down the field full speed, and the 10 on the receiving team are still hitting and holding blocks until the whistle. Just like without this rule. The whistle won't blow until after the fair catch is made. So those 20 guys are still in full contact mode. I really don't see how this enhances safety except for the returner.

He didn't take him down. He did press from the back and it was a dangerous kick, but after 180+ of tie game? Don't make it about the referee in my opinion. I guarantee a foul was missed at least that bad in the other box over those 180. It always is. Just look for a corner. That's why I think it was the wrong moment to make that call.

Wow. Thoughts on the late penalty that sent Real Madrid through? I think it could be a penalty, but at 90+7 I'm not deciding the game as a referee on that foul...

^  I'm guessing one of us shoots Merle from a saloon window before Rossi gets to.

Shot in the back by your own team. The moment when you know you are loved and appreciated.

If UMHB wants to get Luke Poorman, shouldn't it also have to acquire Merle as part of the deal?

Not sure Merle would clear waivers. Maybe he wouldn't pass his physical mental.

Fixed that for you.

Oh he's absolutely a great coach. The spin in that article is why he left the Riverhounds. I don't think he's leaving from all I read if he's not ruled ineligible to coach. But yeah, this is a huge get for Hope. I think they are going to be competitors in a few years. We'll see if he sticks around or tries to move up again.

Intereating. It seems like he says he wanted out of Pittsburgh. That's not the story in Pittsburgh and it certainly skips over the whole license issue, which was very real.  We all spin things our own way. I think this is a very good example of that.

Raw deal for the ECFC. They are running out of teams...

Congrats to Poorman.  Luke is going to have a handful of rings by the time he is done.  One MUC Championship ring and two "finalist" rings from UMHB
Somewhere there is an echo of a rimshot for this one. Well done. +K

Depends on what program you are a part of...  8-)  In some programs, it wouldn't even be acknowledged. I'd probably vote for you, though. I appreciate clever banter. 8-)

Yeah. I found that silly too. If your players bust hump all season and work hard, an end of year banquet is a good way to say thanks and goodbye to those that aren't coming back and to build the team for the next year. Whether you are 0-10 or 15-0, an end of season banquet isn't so much to celebrate the season as to recognize the effort. But again, to each their own.
