    Is this for a NEW men's soccer team?

    Or is this just some club team?

    My friend and I are trying out for the team. Lots of talent out there, I'm hoping I do well on wednesday and make the team. The heat at 2pm on a shadeless field was brutal yesterday. On another note, one of the coaches is the UL physicist Dr. Gary Glass, you may have read about him in La Louisiane a few months ago.

    We would have to add another woman's sport to add a men's soccer team, because of Title IX.

    Gary Glass, doesn't he have a son with the same name? If so I played for that guy when I was little. We need to have a schedule of when they play, I'd definitly try to get out there.

    I played for a little while last year. Had to quit because of work and school, and it was just too much, but it is fun and competitive. Its not exactly as organized as I would have liked it to be, but Art is trying to get it to that level. Good luck to everyone trying out.

    So....lets put together a women's swim/diving team. They can compete in conference and attract alot of male fans.

    Then we can have an official men's team....with so many great players out of Acadiana, Lafayette, and STM attending our school we would do pretty well with local talent. I would love to have men's soccer in the Sun Belt. (WKU, FIU, FAU, Denver, and the Cajuns could all compete for a championship)

    FIU has produced several MLS stars....wouldn't that be great!!

    Of course....it would take a BIGGER athletic budget.
