Clt forgot to say "clt says" and clt obviously has not seen our team, either.

Shout out to the lads for beating previously undefeated FIU in the conference semifinal today. That should be enough to get us to the NCAA, but beating ODU on their home pitch Sunday will be sweet after we outplayed them here, but lost on a very questionable penalty kick goal.

you really think we will get an at large? Not a snarky question, actually curious. With our record I figured it wasn't possible,  but I don't follow college soccer closely enough to know.

We might get an at-large bid, but I really doubt it will happen. We donít have the best record to be picked. If New Mexico get selected, we better get selected...

Probably going to have an RPI in the thirties. IMO, we should be in. I'm not on the selection committee, however.
Hopefully, this will be moot point late Sunday afternoon.

Niners with ANOTHER draw against Kentucky.  Dominated play, but again had trouble putting the ball in the net.  Stupid unnecessary penalty in the box gave Kentucky a PK, otherwise we win this one.  We get some people who can finish and this team is top 10 for sure.  Some help on D wouldn't help either, but offense is where we need it.  Finish the season with 6-4-6 record.  I hope we're good at PKs, because we're going to need them in post season play.
.   I expect them to make a run similar to the women's team

We've played ourselves onto the bubble, but I don't think it was enough.  Tomorrow will tell.


found this site to analyze our RPI.  FIU looks under-rated with an RPI of only 21.  ODU is our worst loss twice with and RPI of 28, so no bad losses on our record:  [size=78%]http://rpiu​pdatemenssoc​cer.blogspot​.com/2017/08​/charlotte.h​tml[/size]


A more encouraging view from a less reliable source:  [/size][size=78%]https://www​.topdrawerso​ccer.com/col​lege-soccer/​power-rankin​gs/men/di/di​visionid-1[/size]


Fingers crossed - there's still a chance.  Just so many games we should have won that ended up being draws.

Yeah, I am afraid it will not be enough. Despite us having a Top-20 schedule, they will look at our record. That might not get us in.

Virginia Tech, though with an RPI of just 22, got in with a record of 9-9


I think there is an ACC bias due to all the top teams.

I think Coastal Carolina/ Mercer winner can upset Clemson
