    Go Terps! From the University that brought you Twellman, Stammler, Seitz, Burch, Edu, and others, watch out for their leftside tandem of Jeremy Hall and Rodney Wallace. Both are MLS quality. I’d love to see Maryland vs Wake Forest in the final.

    Come on Michigan. We stunk at American football this year maybe this is the start of real football for the Wolverines.

    My beloved BIG10 Network has college volleyball on Penn State vs. Michigan instead of The Hoosiers whooping they’re gonna put on Michigan. No place to watch this one I guess. I don’t see any scenario that has Indiana loses this game to Michigan.

    SJU 3 UC-Irvine 2.

    A very evenly matched game. It was lively and wide open soccer. Very entertaining. UCI had more shots, but SJU had a little more possession. Going into the game UCI had only lost once, and the Johnnies had only lost twice.

    Lets go Jays!!! All the way to college park to battle the terps. Should be a great game. C’mon boys the run cant end here!

    if anyonw watched the Indiana vs. Michigan game, you would never have known that Indiana beat michigan. Indiana was very lucky Michigan didnt strike first other wise it could have been 3 maybe 4 to 0 Michigan. Indiana will lose againt St johns by at least 2, but im hoping they do well.
