    Get used to it for the first couple weeks of the season, but with so many national team conflicts a lot of the top teams are going to lose early this year. I don't think it's that big of a deal and all of these teams (like UCLA and UNC) are going to be among the best at the end of the year, but I don't set the playoff field.

    What is the NCAA going to do come tournament time? Let's say UCLA loses 2-3 games early (they are missing 5 starters) but then goes on a great run. In years past Santa Clara was punished for early losses even when they wen't undeated in conference play.

    It's going to be an interesting year.

    How about the 5-0 loss Illinois incurred to Mizzou? Wow.

    UCLA fell to Penn State, 3-1, Friday before Jeffrey Field women's record crowd of 3,208...

    Florida State jumped three places to No. 1 by beating defending champion Portland, 2-1, on Sunday in front of 1,625 fans, the second-largest crowd in Seminole history...

    North Carolina dropped its season opener for the first time since 1983 as Texas A&M beat the Tar Heels, 1-0, Friday night before a NCAA regular-season record-setting crowd of 8,204 at the Aggie Soccer Stadium.
