    Not a powerhouse but not bad either. On the girls side, they play a lot of Div 3 games as my daughter played against them when whe was in college. Don't know anything about the boys side. Playing college sports these days while trying to maintain a GPA is a difficult task. A student athelete in a school like MIT is even more impressive.

    At least he knows the game and has and continues to play. Would be interesting to see if he actually played while at MIT or if he was just on the team.

    Lets hope he is actually allowed to do something. We have a big need for a few players that can play right now. Go get em or direct someone else to go get some :D .

    Rumor has it, part of the strategy of the new COO is to put pictures of cute little puppy dogs on the tarp. This will entertain the CAT I season ticket holders when our best players are away for the World Cup.

    As for The Fort, we will have to make due with "Beat Kyle Brown with a stick night".

    Sure beats Shakira.

    My brother was the captain for 3 years (soph, junior and senior years) of the MIT varsity team. I will see what he thinks of this guy.

    ok color me a dipsh!t. I misread the post by rkupp. I thought it said Brian played in 1987. My brother played in the late 80's at MIT.

    My son got there in 99 and left with a masters in EE/CS in 2004. He was varsity crew for most of that time, but knew some of the soccer guys. I sent him the annoucement to see if he ever heard of Brian. If nothing else, they can compare brass rats. ;)
