Re: WWPA's

Are scholarships a big deal at LMU and UC Davis? I know UCSD gives pathetic $500/year athletic scholarships, which I guess is still better than the Ivy League schools.

Re: pep vs uci

Considering the vigor of the opinions in that thread, I would imagine that if UCI loses in the MPSF tournament by a large margin, the criticisms will probably return.

Re: WWPA's

One more thing. UC SD coach put Matt Michalko (a 2M player) to guard Bernie Rogers. 2M offence is not a strong part of Davis game so UCSD could afford it. I am curious if San Diego did the same in the two previous games this season (both lost by San Diego). I saw their previous matchup, and no, Mic...

Re: WWPA's

I have watched both games today. LMU has a bright future with their Novi Sad pair (especially Mitrovic) and a very good goalie. Santa Clara has been a bit of a dissapointment both today (4:8 loss to UCSD) and two weeks ago (4:13 loss to UC Davis). In fact, they look weaker than LMU, at least in my ...

Re: USC vs UCLA

10-9 actually, and yeah, the game winner definitely didn't look like it went in.

Re: WWPA's

I am not sure that it's UC Davis[' tournament to lose. At the beginning of the season, they were ranked fourth in the conference by the coaches. They have been never ranked higher than UC San Diego, for example. BWT, Davis returns almost all crucial players next year (with the exception of Rogers)....

Re: WWPA's

The tournament is UC Davis' to lose, but honestly I think 5 of the 6 teams have a legit shot. 1st day: LMU vs. Air Force I really think LMU will take this. Air Force has played exceptionally poorly this year, and while they have the talent to win the tournament, they make more mistakes than a WWPA t...

While you're right, this statement is beside the point. The discussion is about colleges, and colleges absolutely do care about HS GPA.

Re: UCI- what is going on?

Jovan is a great coach. He has five NCAA championships in a row. Five. His teams have gone undefeated for whole seasons. He has had a hand in turning many players men and women into Peter Cutino award winners. You may not like the man or disagree with his methods but I don't see how you can say he ...

Re: UCI- what is going on?

Why does the coach play his starters most of the game even when they are playing lower teams? Is he padding their stats ? But when playing teams in their division they cannot produce same stats. Yeah, Nikola Vavic on USC is a good example of this too. He can score 5 to 9 goals against weaker teams,...

Re: UOP beats USC

Color me impressed. It's also probably USC's worst loss in a long while.
