    Full schedule is out. The graphic on this twitter post only shows home matches.

    Without a doubt, the non-conference schedule is more challenging in recent seasons. Good to see, but I would have liked see Colorado College on the schedule rather than Austin Peay State.

    First six matches are at home, including Baylor and Texas. First road match is at Florida State.

    Tough conference schedule as well. Five home matches and six away. Last three are on the road as Washington, Washington State and Utah. Don't like the Pac 12 routine of having three consecutive matches at the end of the season on the road.

    Loaded everything into the moving truck today, driving to Grand Junction tomorrow. Much closer to my family. Got into wonderful and brand new low-income senior housing. The soccer field at Colorado Mesa University is five blocks away, and they play more sports than CU does. But I will miss CU soccer and volleyball and lacrosse.

    Fingers crossed (which means I find a place where I can sleep for free, which I probably can), I will be at Kent State (Happy Birthday to Me) and Texas. Volleyball has three games Friday and Saturday that don't conflict with soccer. I will feel like a pig in mud after a rainstorm.

    AND I will be at Utah November 7. It's an easy drive from Grand Junction.

    The building I'll be in has a bunch of big televisions on cable that has a massive number of channels that do not include the Pac-12 network. Barbarians..

    Looks like the official roster has been updated, but without some photos of incoming freshmen.

    Emily Groark has transferred to St. Louis U. She looked to be a key player this season and in the future.

    Also of note, there are now three goalkeepers on the team - senior JJ Tompkins and freshmen Megan Short and Emma Miller.

    I realize Taeya Schueppert is not attending CU but she is a great local player returning to Colorado. She was a top recruit at U of A and signed the NLI but apparently walked away from that commitment. Does anyone know why she decided not to attend Arizona?

    Impressive media day video production and a good watch.

    Insightful for the pressures modern coaches and players are under. Several subtle mentions of job pressure by the head coach (is he near end of contract?) and all three seemed to feel big pressure to reach NCAA's.

    Why did they miss tournament in 2018? Alluded to weak SOS - how bad was it?

    Coach and players handled the media well. He sounds like a good salesman/recruiter.

    I don't think that Danny's near the end of his contract and I'm fairly certain that he's not feeling the hear from the athletic director.

    CU's non-conference schedule last year was weak and apparently one of the reasons why their RPI wasn't high enough to make the NCAA tourney. The one real killer in the non-conference was at home to Colorado State, a 0-0 draw. CSU was not good, and that's putting it mildly. I'd also say that they had several opportunities over the last three matches, all at home, and just couldn't get a win. A win in any one of those matches most likely have gotten them an at-large bid.
