I go off of SoccerHunter's rankings. I don't even have a subscription to TDS. Your complaint about the U.S. youth system, which are partially justified, is a problem that's far wider and broader than any 1 college program. It is what it is, and it's not going to be fixed any time soon. I just going to let it sort itself out. Also, although I understand why the college rules allow so many substitutions with short turnaround matches being played (i.e., 2 days apart), I think they hamper the style the coaches and kids play. This is perhaps the single most important rule that needs fixing. I do believe that bringing in more international talent will help our girls. That is, internationals who can pass,play with the ball at their feet, and play in tight spaces.
