Re: USA at World Championships

Baron is far from the best he will be. Give him another year of training under Pintaric, who did pretty well with the 2 aussies, and I think you will see considerable improvement in his lateral movement and overall leg strength. I do agree Danner is a very solid goalie who shows both great instinct ...

Re: Roster for Volvo Cup in Hungary

Nikola Vavic wanted a break from polo after 4 tough years at SC. Don't be surprised if you see him back in the pool in the future for USA polo.

Re: New NCAA Championship Stinks to High Heaven

I agree with you 'fanofpolo" !! I already miss that hokey announcer and his pretty sidekick!!
Lets go back to Stockton for the Finals!!
UOP set the bar, lets see if the other 4 can keep up.

Re: Now What ???

Absolutely Not.
Of what I'm told,
They don't really vote as much as collaborate on who should go and what seeds they should get.

Does anybody know who makes up the committee this year??

Re: UCLA vs Pacific

Pass appeared to be high and out of reach, good no call. Which brings me to this weekends refs, I was truly impressed at the job Piela, Goldenberg, Koganov and Stankevitch did. Very difficult to Ref physical UOP games and then transition to UCLA- Stanford type more finese games. I only hope they lea...

Re: USC vs. Stanford

SC got off to fast start, goalie Clark had a stellar game, finally. Stanfords 6X5 was horrendous, Bonnani &Churnside single handedly kept them in the game. SC did a great job of neutralizing Cleary and Bowen. Once Bonanni was done w 3 ej it was over. Holland did not play a particularly good game...

Now What ???

As the plot thickens and USC wins MPSF, who is going to NCAA's and what seedings are going to be given. Since Stanford and UCLA lost today does that put Pacific and USC in for sure and Stanford and UCLA go before the committee to be selected?? Stanford owns a 2-1 head to head advantage, advanced fur...

Re: USC vs PACIFIC thread

Like I said in the MPSF thread, Vavic Sr. Got Jr. Going early. I think he went 3-5, Clark for SC had a good game in goal, Malkis had a horrendous start, putting them in a big hole at 8-3. Goran and Obert are beasts, but if you make someone else do all the heavy lifting, and they aren't putting shots...

Re: 2013 MPSF Tournament

Must agree w most posters that Pacific is doing a phenomenal job of not only streaming the games but" highlights " being posted to the site at the conclusion showing all the goals scored and key 5 meter penalty shots!!! This is unheard of, just hoping the other big 4 AD's & sports info...

Re: 2013 MPSF Tournament

I too was quite puzzled when they took out Boggan after playing a solid 1 St half. Splitting time with goalies is dangerous , one gets hot and you should leave him in. On the other hand, fighting for playing time sometimes makes them play better. Getting thrown into a game where your goalie is not p...

Re: USC Goalkeeper Signs With Hungary Polo Club

You think Jovan is going to allow his only goalie that has a chance of getting him to NCAA's to sign before his amateur career is over!!!!!

Cmon people, you know better than that.

Re: 2013 MPSF Tournament

Rotsart may be there but the bigger question will be, does he get the USC-UOP game? Does he get the final? I am very curious to see who gets the final, I'm hoping Stankevitch and Koganov are there, as they have both become very competent refs. Goldenberg, Curry, and Redding, will probably round out ...

Re: WWPA's

You can bet Leyson will bring up some good players from the Southern California area. Remember he was the head of Rose Bowl WP in Pasadena and played at USC and coached under Jovan for a short stint and at UCLA with Adam also. With all that exposure and experience he has got to be able to convince a...

Re: 2013 MPSF Tournament

Remember sports fans, the NCAA seeding committee takes into account many facets for seedings. They factor in strength of schedule, league play, last 10 games, post season play, and head to head competition. Looking at all these factors it would be difficult to select SC if they lose to UCLA or Stanf...
