MAC Soccer Tournament

Lets get fired up! We had a rough transition to the MAC but we have a good team.  First round is against University at Buffalo on Thursday in Akron, Ohio.  It is single elimination but the winner gets an autobid to the NCAA tournie.  The MAC is stacked, Akron is ranked either 2nd or 4th nationally and will get a spot regardless of its tournament showing while Northern Illinois is well regarded and Buffalo has received votes.  We come in as a black sheep, a 6th seed ahead of only Bowling Green, after nearly every team in the MAC has wiped the floor with us.

Thats all in the past.  The soccer team can show some grit and fight its way through the tournie or it can give up.  Give the Bulls hell in the first round and lets win the MAC!

GO OWLS!

Re: MAC Soccer Tournament

We'll go one-and-done, no question. We're 5-12-1! We did beat Duke though, but only averaged one goal a game all year. Pathetic. Maybe things will improve a little next year, but I said that every year for what seems like the 150 years Donev has been at FAU.

Oh, and we lost 7-0 to Akron! I mean, I know they're ranked super-high, but you shouldn't lose 7-0 to anyone at this level.

Isn't there a ton of soccer talent to recruit from in South Florida?  How would FAU not be good?

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Re: MAC Soccer Tournament

My sentiments exactly…

Alex asserts that the scholarships have been decreased, and resources as well…

Absolutely…

Just ask the women's basketball and volleyball teams as well…….

Baseball and men's basketball not as big of a jump however…
