U.S. Under-20 Men vs. Mexico Under-20 Men
Estadio Cuauhtémoc; Puebla

The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team is looking to do something no previous U.S. U-20 MNT has done in the history of the U-20 qualifying tournament – win an outright final. The USA faces Mexico in a highly-anticipated title game at the 2013 CONCACAF U-20 Championship at 7 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 3, at Estadio Cuauhtémoc in Puebla, Mexico. The match will be broadcast live on FOX Soccer and Galavision.
In addition to basketball starting tonight, men's soccer plays Northwestern at 3:30ET on BTN in the conference semi finals. Game is important for obvious reasons wrt the conference championship, but a win will go a long way towards NCAA tournament considerations.
I feel bad that I haven't kept up with the soccer team this year. Ever since the departure of Soony, Meram, Harmoody, it hasn't been the same.
Today I headed over to the official site to find a game I could make. Then my eyes bled.
That B10 logo is just as big as the block M on the left shoulder.
For the love of God, give me blue. (Coming from a guy who generally loves maize, especially with hockey and basketball - BUT NEVER FOOTBALL).
Soccer uniforms are pretty hard to fuck up. They are the most wearable and stylish of any sports apparel. All you have to do is keep them white and not have the numbers on the back represent a neon light.
Michigan just announced the new men's head soccer coach, and it's Chaka Daley, former Providence coach. Like Hoke, Daley enjoys a good point:
Pretty much all of Daley's career has been at Providence College. He played at Providence from 1992-1996, had a brief pro career in the US until 1999, and coached at Providence after that ended.
Daley inherited a fairly mediocre program and has taken Providence to the NCAA tourney 5 times since 2005. This year they made it to the second round before losing to UCSB. Michigan stole him away despite Daley receiving a contract extension in August 2011.
It'll be interesting to see how Michigan's second head coach recruits with brand new facilities and a big name behind him.
Looks like we'll be playing Akron come Friday...
