I've been to all but one game this year and this team is definitely tournament worthy and fun to watch. They are attacking on the offense with plenty of speed and skill, and solid on defense with good goalkeeping. It'll be chilly but it'll toughen you up for the last home football game, come on out.

Winner takes on Notre Dame in South Bend. Michigan lost 2-1 to Notre Dame earlier in the season. Hopefully they can avenge our losses to the Fighting Irish this year...

I’m surprised my boy WD wasn’t in love with our coach a couple of years ago.  I wonder what his take is on the program now.  Also they played very well in the BIG10 tournament.  Up until the championship game where we got blankenshipped.  Great job guys and GO BLUE!!

The reason why Michigan has a soccer team is Steve Burns. He took the team from powerhouse at the collegiate club level to varsity. In 2010, the team finished second in the B1G regular season, won the B1G tournament, and went to the NCAA semi-finals. He lost a ton of talent off of that team, and they had a bad year in 2011. He was let go after then. Daley got to the second round of the ncaa tournament with Burns players and then didn't make it to the NCAA for the next four years.

Last year was great (1st in B1G regular season, second round NCAA), and I want to repeat that I have absolutely nothing against Daley. I just think Dave Brandon fucked up when he fired Burns.

Nice!  Go Blue and beat Princeton!  I saw M got smoked by IU 3-0 in the B1G title game, which isn't a surprise because IU is a powerhouse program.  I was worried they might not get an at large.
