    Ok. I was led to believe this was a pretty solid club. Way too many points allowed.

    Article says score was 2-0. Two seems descent on the college level.

    The UL soccer team seems to fit the Farmer Sun Belt model well: very comfortable where it is.

    😰😰😰. 11/18 shots. I rarely read articles on soccer. Still losing to SLU isn't bad?

    Louisiana isn't a soccer hotbed, not even an air mattress. Every few blue moon the state produces a national team caliber player, male or female.

    We can always do like Akron and go all in for one of the soccer programs and maybe get a NC like they did. But it forced Akron to give up baseball.

    Not justifying the results, soccer is a very expensive sport if you're going to recruit and compete, and doesn't have a great rate of return. Refineryville (our unfortunate Louisiana benchmark) has 8 international players from multiple continents. They are usually competitive/good but they don't sniff the NCAA college cup in the fall. I'd like to see our program do better, but I know our conference champ usually is first round fodder. Our league doesn't have the money.

    That and title IX is why UL won't field a men's team other than a club team. The kids that play give up their weekends where they could be tailgating or whatever. As with any sport, it's the love of the game.

    Great summary. I for one would love to see UL soccer compete for a conference championship. I think Scott does well in trying to attract talent from around the country to play here, I've known (and played with) a number of girls on the team over the years and they are good players. I am not convinced though that we shouldn't always be beating Southeastern and Nichols.

    Losing in ANY sport to Nicholls is totally unacceptable. Even a game of jacks.

    SLU is becoming the new UNO. They are competitive at that level.

    I guess I incorrectly thought you were comparing a loss and the direction of our soccer team to the direction of our AD. My bad.

    I have been reading the bios, of our soccer coach, and truly expect a lot, and volley ball too. If that is not accurate I would be very disappointed. I mean the USF bio on Harris is glowing, and we are buying into it with gusto.

    Over the last 10-15 years, LA has definitely come a long way. May not be a hot bed, but its not bad either. Hell, the Bradley's are from Louisiana!
