Thinking back on my experience with soccer as a fall sport in Michigan, I'm starting to wonder if it wouldn't be better for the sport if it were played in the Spring across the country. What would be the barriers to this? I remember I met a guy from Iowa once who said that boys soccer was a Spring sport there and that at his HS they had the homecoming dance in the Spring for the soccer team, as well as one in the Fall for the football team. Seems to me this might be an opportunity to give some kids a chance to experience soccer without having to choose btw football and soccer. In my own experience, I can remember everyone would go to football games in the fall, basketball games in the winter and then that was it. Sure baseball was played in the Spring, but no one went, and I think that's pretty true for college sports too. Outside of MLB, I'm not sure how popular that sport is as a spectator sport nationally. Maybe soccer could fill that void?
