How the mighty have fallen. It is looking highly doubtful that Stanford will be making it back to the NCAA Tournament, let alone the Final Four for the third straight year. The latest blow came Friday night when they lost to lowly Fresno State 2-0. http://gostanford.ocsn.com/sports/m-soccer/recaps/101703aaa.html This drops their record to 2-9-2 with seven games remaining. If they win them all, they will be at .500 but since six of those games are in the conference, they could, theoretically, win the Pac Ten and get the automatic bid. But, the chances of this are slim and if they don't win the automatic big, a .500 mark ain't gettin' them to the NCAAs. Stanford's next two games are away-and-home with No. 1 UCLA. They have no room for error. If they don't win either game, their season is, for all intents and purposes, over. It's kind of amazing considering they have in Chad Marshall the best pro prospect in college soccer but at the same time, it also shows how much a team game soccer is as despite how good Marshall is, Stanford is pretty bad.
