Michigan Soccer NCAA Tournament Game Open Thread
Michigan now up a goal and up a man!
Meram puts the Blue up 1-0 with a nice shot from inside the box. Huge, huge goal in a game that has been back and forth. And now a straight red card to an SC player - announcers are not happy about it at all.
Huge. Didn't seem that bad.
KInd of a weak red imo.
11-10 man advantage for Michigan the rest of the game
What garnered the red for SC, didn't see it?
Gotta get pressing and searching for the 2nd here.
Meram will sit after being the victim of a hard foul for the 2nd time today, Matt Schmitt in to replace him.
I'll give these announcers credit - they're SC homers & Southern stereotypes, but they just devoted a good minute to talking about how we're the best attacking team they've seen all year and a joy to watch.
for those who are reading this thread as a substitute for the game and haven't gotten to the end of the thread, the announcers just complimented them for coming into the SC roost and wished them well against Penn State or Maryland.
South Carolina will bring everything they have left here in the final 20 minutes to save their season...Michigan has to play solid defense
Yep, but we can't neglect the attack either - a second goal up a man would pretty much end it. I'm looking for Soony Saad to seal the deal in the waning minutes. :)
"5 of the last 16 teams in the tournament are from the Big Ten. Dad gum"
So who is next?
Faces the Winner of Penn State/Maryland
Thank you, sir.
Winner of Penn St and Maryland. Probably Maryland since they are the 2 seed.
I tuned in just to see the kickoff after the second goal. Dadgum.
When is the elite 8 game?
TBA Dec 3-5
@Maryland or vs Penn State in A2
are the dates of the Quarterfinals....no specific times have been announced.
The quarterfinal time is Home team choice--Friday evening, Saturday or Sunday. It will probably be announced by noon on Monday.
Game date isn't set yet but it takes place sometime between December 3 and December 5 against the winner of the Penn State-Maryland match. Maryland is the number 2 overall seed.
Diving in the box. Hard to tell if that was the right call from this camera angle. Also hard to see how SC comes back down 2-0.
Soony Saad comes off after getting a yellow for a dive in the box. Good day for him, though, with a goal and several good opportunities.
Does a red card = miss the next match in college?
is opening up rushes for Michigan...they will have a lot of counter attack opportunities the rest fo the game...
Just by the outside post. Damn, almost 3-0.
Assuming Michigan holds on and Maryland beats PSU, does anyone know when the quarterfinal match will be played.
Specific matches have not been announced yet
Nothing official, but the NCAA handbook says--
Friday between 6 and 7:30 pm, Saturday between noon and 7:30 pm, or Sunday between noon and 1 pm.
Michigan has a home basketball game at 1:00 Saturday, so they probably would avoid a Saturday afternoon game. I think Michigan would also want to avoid a night game in December. If I had to guess, if Michigan hosts Penn State it will be Sunday at 1:00 pm.
Did y'all know Michigan State beat Maryland earlier this year
Maybe not? I have the sound off.
Offsides still 2-0
