Former AD Dick Regan was a big soccer guy and had our new stadium built (with the help of the Smith's!) about 13 years ago. One would have hoped that our M&W programs would have improved over time but that is simply not the case. It's been a grind for a very long time. This season's poll and team are attached - we're supposed to be fighting it out with Lafayette for the cellar - as with the women, that's 'why they play the games' so let's hope for some pleasant surprises.Will be interesting how new ADMB looks to improve our minor sports, if he indeed even cares more than his predecessors.

Hopefully the facilities will lift them all up a bit. In lieu of that maybe concentrate on one male and one female sport at a time and see what can be done....the school's philosophy isn't going to do a 180 and drop programs any time soon

Big test tonight at home vs. BC (3-0 record) which has only allowed one goal this season. We're very inexperienced and have been playing six frosh regularly. Just maybe we can pull an upset, you never know

Some reason to be encouraged despite the 3-2 loss - PL is a pretty strong soccer league so we'll have to continue to improve. BC scored on 3 of their 4 shots on goal, so we were very close in this one.

Last OOC match tonight vs. Northeastern before league play starts this weekend (at Navy) - we're 0-4 and have been outscored 3-13 through those games - I'd say it's an important game to 'right the ship' or things might spiral downward and no one wants to see that.

our school has proven many times that changing coaches is not the solution when there are systemic deficiencies in the entire athletic program when developing a strategy to win games and championships. As long as that remains the same I think every perennial losing coach takes a 10 pct cut in salary. We've had enough of this constant losing and wasting lots of $
