As everyone expected, an hour and a half after John Born was promoted, Kris Grahn was named NPU's new head coach. This is exactly what those of us who follow North Park men's soccer were hoping would happen. As associate head coach, Kris was John's right-hand man and was heavily involved in every aspect of the program, especially recruiting. He's obviously the person who is best positioned to keep the international pipleline going, seeing as how Kris himself originally came to North Park from Sweden to play soccer, and as a former All-American and CCIW Player of the Year he's going to have credibility with American prospects as well.

This is a good day for North Park soccer.

Am waiting for official news that Matias Warp, former Viking All-American, will return after a one year absence.  That will make him 29 y/o. /s

Thought I heard he graduated early... time for our annual edition of NPU-splaining for the coming onslaught of vitriol from schools on the Vikings' schedule. Paging Prof. Sager.

I wasn't aware that one prior occurrence of something made it "annual".

Actually, upon reviewing this board's past posts, I was reminded that last season's "onslaught of vitriol" came from three posters who all hail from the northeastern part of the country (EB2319, Mr. Right, and Paul Newman), none of whom had a rooting interest in any of the teams on last season's NPU schedule. So, in other words, your "annual edition" describes something that's never happened before.
