In Topic: Letter from my Father concerning SLU Soccer

17 November 2015 - 02:58 PM

The inverse correlation between the massive increase in popularity of soccer in this country--particularly among teenagers and 20-somethings--and the decrease in success and popularity of the SLU soccer program should be a big concern for leadership at SLU. I realize that there are more schools competing for talent and the development academies now take the top kids, but SLU should be what Akron has become.

I was pleasantly surprised by yesterday's performance. However, I constantly remind myself during cupcake season that individual performances--good or bad--often don't correlate to higher-level competition. For example, Roby and Bartley never seemed to get into the flow yesterday, and yet Crawford and Reynold's both looked comfortable and great. When we play Louisville in a few weeks, I suspect Crawford and Reynold's may find themselves somewhat handicapped by certain physical limitations while Roby and Bartley find themselves much better equipped to compete. This is known as the "NGM Syndrome" (Newborne/Glaze/McBroom). You won't know how bad the syndrome is until late January, but I hope it is not a problem for this team.

...and you call yourself a Christian!

Imagine if he was an evil Buddhist or Hindu? Or just self-righteous.

Wrong I found at least one of the kiosks selling Schlafly

As did I, but I went from being flanked by Schlafly and UCBC stands to only having a small Schlafly stand on the other side of the arena. I guess they also figured out they lost money on the bottomless popcorn with my boys.  


On the bright side, I think we should be a lot better because it was shockingly apparent tonight how dramatic that transition is for true freshmen, which is a good thing for our many sophomores and juniors.

It helps a lot when you play your best players.
