    Anyway, soccer as it feed colleges is like tennis and lacrosse: upper middle class dou-ches doing Archer cosplay while date-raping Muffy and getting ready for their Alito internship. It's the privileged frat from every 80s movie. The people who go on to work at Goldman. And that's why they don't last 15 seconds against kids raised in the favela.
    And college soccer is largely irrelevant even in the MLS landscape. Even the ones that do come from college were still trained at MLS academies like Jordan Morris.

    And North Carolina is, and always has been, the dominant force in Women’s College Soccer.

    • And the major difference between the USWNT and USMNT is the Manager (and GM) controls the players on the MNT while the players control the Manager on the WNT. There’s a reason why Carli Lloyd is still starting or why Geoff Cameron was still playing while Jaelene Hinkle never saw the field.

        Shout out to my favorite MLS player, AJ De La Garza, who won 2 national titles at Maryland but grew up playing in the DC-United system.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A._J._DeLaGarza

        He was my next-door neighbor when I lived in LA, and he and his high-school-girlfriend wife are the nicest folk you could ever meet.


        If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

            All I ask is to at least make me work for it, you are likely smarter than me overall.

            To tell you how useless the College Draft in MLS is, they reduced the number of rounds from four to three (they had a supplemental round because of trades) and teams still passed in the third round (Colorado passed in the second).

            And the first American player was picked 6th.

                    Also, West Germany/Germany’s run from 1966 to 2018 is honestly incredible.

                    • CONCACAF looking to start Women’s Champions League after 2023 World Cup

                      Or, how North Carolina Courage and Portland Thorns destroyed everyone on their way to a two leg final while a Mexican team maybe puts up a fight.

                      Granted, that’s not too different from the Men’s Champions League. At least CONCACAF is finally doing something, now if they can do a real World Cup Qualification so we can see the WNT sucking wind after 10 minutes at Azteca or complaining about field conditions in the Caribbean (and they thought FieldTurf was bad...).

                          Don’t the Premier League and a lot of top UEFA clubs have a women’s counterpart? Seems like the entire English and French teams played for Chelsea or PSG.

                            I know they exist: for every EPL team (including their ute feeders) there's a chick equivalent. But I got the impression it was a joke and a 30-seed or so women's college team would destroy any of them. I'm not sure they're even dykes. They're unattractive, but that could just be they're British.

                              Yeah, a lot of the top clubs have begun investing in women’s teams the last few years and have been courting American players.

                              And yes there’s a UEFA Women’s Champions League.

                                Yes. Europe, France, England, and Spain especially, have good teams. Japan and Australia have had decent leagues for years (many Americans would go to Australia during the winter months between NWSL seasons). Mexico is investing heavily as well.

                                It’s difficult to compare the NWSL to them though because there’s almost zero competition between them. The only barometer we have is the two Women’s International Champions Cups in 2018 and 2019. They were summer friendly tournaments played in the US and North Carolina and Lyon played in both finals, NC winning in 2018 and Lyon in 2019.
