I'm not sure if this has already been posted, and I know I don't want to even think about it, but if the U.S. would somehow pull a U23 Olympic Qualifying type of stunt - what would the potential implications be for US soccer (besides lapsing me further into depression)? Specifically... Would we see any major developments, plans or knee-jerk reactions from USSF? Would Arena be out (I assume he would probably resign) and what other heads would roll? How far would this set the US back in terms of the legitimizing the US player to the rest of the world? How would this affect MLS (or would it)? What about US player development and/or talent scouting? I'm not trying to be pessimistic here; I do fully expect us to qualify. We're maturing as a soccer country when you can look at your recent successes and expect the team to succeed at the highest levels of international competition. But, that type of expectation comes with a price for failure. Thoughts?
