During the Notre Dame - Maryland game, Brent Musberger and Gary Danielson got into a discussion about Shane Walton, the ND cornerback who got three interceptions and was their player of the game. Apparently Walton was a high school All-American soccer player and was on a U-16 or U-17 national world cup team. They had a graphic up about that. "You expect a soccer player to have good footwork, but this guy's got good hands too," said Gary. They also had asked Walton at some point about whether he'd played with any of the guys on the US National team, apparently he'd told them three (who? Donovan, Beasley, O'Brien?) and that he still followed them. Walton's probably old news to those of you who've kept tabs on all possible USMNT prospects since infancy, I'm sure. That's not the point. What I didn't hear was some put-down of soccer in their discussion, although I'm sure they're not soccer fanatics by any means. I'm glad of that. But I'm not glad he's playing football, especially for Notre Dame...I root against them!
