Number 14 beat St Bonnie tonight 5-1.  Perhas one day a PRINTED, NON-BLOG ARTICLE will appear in the local paper.  Then again, perhaps they are waiting for us to lose first (Which will seldom happen this year).
  We have one reporter assigned to us. He is looking forward longingly to retirement. You do the math. (They MAY pick up a wire story when we win the A10 tournament)   
  Loved the front page coverage of the new Tar Hole athletic director, though.

Good to see ya there Niner89!

Niners dominated the ball, but struggled to put it in the net, finally getting a goal in the 81st minute.

C-Pip's right.  About EVERYTHING.

It's great that you've made it to the game. Next time don't forget to stop by I'll buy you a beer or . . .twelve. ;D
 
I stopped by to see C-Pip and got to meet his mom. What a great lady.
 
#15 Charlotte won again this afternoon (I wonder if the disturber knows about it)  :p .
 
#1 Niners  will be on the road next Friday facing #3 La Salle. Then Sunday against #2 Ford  Ham.
 
I can't wait for the following Friday October 28. EggZavier owed us a big one from last year.Great game this afternoon guys. In the mean time, let's keep on kicking butts and taking names.
 
GO NINERS ! ! !

I assume soccer is a lot like basketball... top 25 is an at-large bid in the NCAA?
The University of Charlotte? I think so.

Nope. See: Charlotte Soccer 2010. Only a 48 team field.

I am sorry about you have to spend your Sunday at the hospital and miss the game. I hope everything is OK and nothing serious.
There will be a big one coming soon for you to come out and scream your head off. C Pip's mom came to the game and I get to chat with both for a while.

I decided to skip watching the Panthers yesterday and go to our soccer game.  I thought we looked more sluggish than normal but I will take the win.  Everyone needs to check out this team.  They are probably one of the best teams we've ever had.

Maybe the year they were in the college cup.  Anyone know for sure?

I don't have time to look it up, but it might say in the media guide:

I'm not sure if we ranked higher in any other year. But, 1996 was a special season. We were 5th in NSCAA National top 25 final poll under coach Tart.

I'll have to pull out the media guide to check the exact dates, but most certainly we were ranked higher in previous seasons. In the mid 90s, before the college cup season, we had back to back years where we were ranked in the top 5 for a good portion of the season. I was at the So carolina game where we knocked them off (top 5) on their field, and got pushed up to I think as high as #2 on one poll, and #3 on the more popular ones. We were an absolute powerhouse those two seasons. It was kind of disappointing that we didn't advance further in the NCAA tournament until about 2-3 years later when we made the final four.
 
Prior to that, I am fairly certain that one year when Gabe & Carlos Garcia were on the team we were ranked top 20 for most of the season - I think around #17. It's hard to remember exactly because there were so many polls back then - like 3 or 4. We lost to the tarholes that season in the 1st round of the tournament - and yes, i was at the game. one of the garcia bros got absolutely taken down from behind, in the box, on a breakaway, and a small, but vocal group of Niner fans could only watch increduously as the ref swallowed his whistle and stuck his head in the sand. A similar play happened a little while later. Tarholes went on to win that game 1-0. It was eerily similar to the officiating in many US men's team games of the past few years.
 
I drank a lot of beer that night, and then deposited it pretty liberally on as many tarhole campus buildings as I could. Damnit.
