    7 unseeded teams in the sweet 16 -- seems high, is it?

    Many higher-ranked teams have lost, including six seeded teams. Somebody has to play!

    Sure, just wondering how 7 unseeded in the sweet 16 compares historically (and too lazy to research it myself!)

    I hate to single out the GK when the whole defense made mistakes, but UCLA’s GK Crockford really did poorly on Vermont’s two goals to make it 2-0 with 15 or so minutes to go. The first one he didn’t even react and the second was perfectly set up for a dive to his right and he inexplicably tried to stay on his feet and shuffle over for it. He’s a good GK and certainly made some great saves in the first half, but those two were head scratchers.

    There are now 8 seeded teams left. That will probably change somewhat after today's matches.

    The Duke-FIU match has been postponed from 1p to 3p today. I surmise that Duke didn't want FIU to have any advantage of playing in a rain storm after surving in similar conditions against NH.

    OK, you guys are all far more expert than me, but: it looked to me like the GK got to the ball first, punched it away, and then the Creighton forward tripped over him.

    GK did not get to the ball first.

    In the Pitt-KY match, I thought a yellow card not a red card was appropriate for the Pitt MF. IMO, the Pitt player lost his feet and slid into the player in atrocious conditions.

    Then again, Jacqueson (sp) hit a pretty shot with little pressure on him [EDIT] in the final minutes...

    Don't disagree. Vermont played well and deserved the win, but the whole UCLA team was exhausted, including Crockford. Two cross country flights in a week and most of the team had a rough stomach bug for the days in between so they were unable to practice. Combine that with a coach who has a weirdly short rotation for college soccer and inexplicably refuses to play a lot of talented, Junior and Senior players, and you can see why UCLA, who'd dominated much of the first half, clearly ran out of gas in the second.
