2006 NCAA Soccer College Cup field is set...
At this point in the tourney big teams are going to put together big wins, and regular season performance doesn't count for anything. While the ACC has two of the final four teams, my question from a couple of posts ago still stands, what has happened to the ACC? Over on BigSoccer a lot of folks thought I was crazy for saying the ACC is falling apart, but im my mind this UCLA victory goes to show that a season of tough competition in the best conference doesn't prepare you for everything. UCLA was an underestimated opponent and they outclassed Duke to make it to the semi-finals. Just like in Basketball's version of the big dance, a #1 seed means little.
The rest of the College Cup field looks like this:
#8 UCLA vs #4 UVA
UCSB vs #2 Wake Forest
The semi-final matches are in St. Louis this Friday, Dec. 1. The final is live on ESPN 2 this Sunday at 2 pm eastern...noon mountain. Enjoy!
