On the NCAA Men's Soccer selection show earlier, Michigan (10-9-1) makes the tournament.
They will host niagara out of the MAAC on 11/15 at 7pm. If Michigan wins, they will face a very familiar team in 5 seed akron (17-1-2). Michigan played the zips, a soccer powerhouse, back on October 16th and came up short 1-0 against #3 at the time.
akron is also the team that ended Michigan's dream season in 2010 in the College Cup (NCAA Semifinals). However last season, Michigan upset akron 1-0 in OT at home. Despite the rankings and the fact Michigan has always been the underdog, these games are mostly tight contests.
Got to take care of niagara first though. Pretty remarkable Coach Daley has taken a 5-14-1 team from a year ago led them to a 3rd place finish in the B1G, wins over both rivals, a near B1G Tournament Championship and an NCAA Tournament bid. This is only a sign of great things to come, IMO.
