I don't follow the soccer team other than headlines but aren't they supposed to be great every year and then sh$t the bed when comes to both the BET and the NCAAs.

Again, I don't follow them other than seeing rankings but they seem to follow the Pitt model of success, or lack thereof.

That's kind of a stretch. At least UConn's men's soccer has national titles (3 to be exact, last one in 2000).

We're still waiting for Pitt hoops to even make a FF.

Seriously? We have two national championships in soccer. As far as attendance goes, we're one of the top couple of schools in the country. Pitt is a good hoops program that hasn't even sniffed a final four.

No. We have underachieved a few years running though. But past post-season success far outweighs anything Pitt has done in Basketball.

Pitt has a FF. It was back in '40 or '41 when it was an 8 team tournament and the NIT was king, but they were there.

We have three soccer NCs, 1948, 1981, 200. One was prior to the NCAA tournament.

Also, soccer is a different type of sport. One bounce of the ball can determine a season.

When I was on campus, outside of BBall games, the best show in town(campus) was Mens Soccer. Those games were NUTS.

Of course back then you were allowed to have a kegger in the stands.
