I hate to date myself but "back in the day" we had a few foreign players and also by acquaintance through those players their were just regular students that attended the school. They received basically no aid from the school. The students

My perspective on international players is certainly selfish. I want to see my kid and other local kids get opportunities. You can't blame a local soccer coach for bringing in great players from other countries. I have to say though they are not alwa

My first reaction is to agree that local kids should get more of a chance at local schools too. But if we believe that wouldn't that also need to apply to Bill Self for Kansas basketball? He surely isn't going to let a local kid play on his team un

Pulisic is the real deal. Only the AR could stop him last night. He had that play in the first half where he somehow got around two guys right on the sideline and was going to be free on goal. It looked like something Messi would do, but the AR ca

I run a manufacturing plant. One thing I hold true is that you don't manage to the exception. Meaning if a process works for 98% of the product you don't change it because it doesn't work for the other 2%. I think in society today we seem to be ove

Man that was a beat down. Such the opposite of the 4-0 loss to Costa Rica (I think that was the score). Pulisic is just as amazing as everyone thinks he is. I thought Espinoza was going to single handedly injure every US player. Man he was taking

This is really a non-issue that's in the headlines, only because it is so non-traditional. There are more realistic issues along the lines of state schools giving scholarship preference to out of state and overseas players. If it were down to a few

The MO-Kan tournament starts Monday at Aquinas. I had thought that Aquinas would be the favorite this year but that 1-0 score makes me think games might be closer than I had thought. LSN or Sion could be in there at the end?

It is too simple to think of all transgender people as being absolutely genetically perfect guys / gals and just mentally want to be the opposite sex. There are also people born with with three chromosomes instead of the normal XX or XY and people b

As for my initial comment, it really it not all that far fetched because once you accommodate and allow one group to identify as something they are not you open Panadora's box. if I can identify as the opposite sex, then why not a 4-legged animal wi

This precedent is dangerous in my opinion, and it opens the door to all kinds of potential issues. Trying to keep the conversation focused on the spirit of competition and fair play, and not the morality of such things, what would happen if an 25 ye

I've seen a couple of articles recently about transgender athletes, so I thought I'd see how radioactive this topic is on our forum. If a transgender athlete took an opportunity away from your athlete, rather that be a roster spot on the top team U-
