  1. Who replaces our First Team All-Conference kicker Hedlund? That could be the difference between 2-3 wins! Surprised Vito did not have this in his Top 5.

    All that matters

    Records mean very little without the ships! The only thing that matters is winning the regular season title, tournament title and going on to the NCAA’s! Pretty much what our women’s soccer program does every year! Let’s finish the season out strong! Go Mean Green MBB & WBB!

    Weren’t we in this tournament last year? How did that experience go! It’s time for the NCAA Tournament and I’ll say the same thing to MBB!

    Seth Littrell Rumors Mega Thread

    I'm hearing this as well. Apparently the hold up is the KSU AD wants the hire to be the NDSU coach and Bill Snyder wants it to be his son! There is your real tug a war and yes the AD does have heavy ties into NDSU and their Head football coach. I believe the AD wins out and that will be KSU's head new football coach.

    Our Conference champs Rice who we lost to in the semi final 3-1 just lost to Texas State 3-1 in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Was really hoping Rice was going to make a run...get some respect for our conference, maybe get two teams in next year! Not a good look for CUSA VB getting drilled by Texas State!

    Noticed TCU and Texas Tech declined to play this year, infact looks like we’re the only Texas team to accept the invite. #60 WKU declined as well along with the rest of the conference but the biggest tournament hit was very few Power 5 schools.. only two.

    Looks like CUSA champs Rice will be the only team representing the conference this year in the NCAA Tournament. With our RPI at 131, we have no chance...looks like its another pay to play NIT tournament for our team again this year! Hopefully someday we will get to play in the real post season tournament!

    2018 CUSA Women's Soccer Tourney Info/Results

    Congratulations on a great year ladies winning both CUSA championships and now dominating their sport with 7 CUSA titles! We're so proud! On advancing in the NCAA tournament, it's more about the draw then the direct system UNT plays. If you watch enough womens college soccer UNT, Baylor and Arkansas are identical with the way they play. Very direct, utilize their speed/ athletes and extremely physical...when you read alot of the coaches game quotes, most schools hate playing these three schools in particular and all three teams consistently lead in fouls/cards each year! Now the question is can you win in this tournament with a direct system? Yes... Baylor with a little luck last year went all the way to the Elite 8 and won the Big 12 this year and Arkansas won last night, although it was UALR but they have advanced in recent years. Arkansas also got to the SEC championship game the last two years. The only diference I see in these three programs is Baylor and Arkansas have more depth then UNT but hopefully with the new stadium Hedlund can build his depth instead of relying solely on his starters! Now as far as A&M, they get the best talent out of Texas every year (5 star recruits) Very silly to say the talent is the same because its not even close! Hedlund finds athletes with speed and fits them into his system to counter these national type players he cannot get. A&M was ranked as high as #3 in the country this year...that's the talent they have, if your read the box score, Emmitt Smith's daughter couldn't even get off the bench last night, that's how deep they're. So what our women did last night to almost steal a win against that team/environment was simply amazing and they should be commended not torn down! I believe this program will advance someday when they start hosting or their draw becomes more fair to their RPI...this year they got screwed and right now all the NCAA committee is doing is throwing us to the wolves!

    Who cares, this is about winning and getting fair treatment from the committee! I believe Hedlund has beaten TCU the last two times they have played...now that should have been the first round matchup!

    Agree this makes no sense! We should be playing TCU...can you imagine the crowd we would have and it's an easy 30 min drive! RPI just came out (Texas Schools) #5 Baylor, #10 A&M, #13 Texas, #19 TCU, #31 UNT, #34 Texas Tech. All Texas schools got to host first round games even Texas Tech at 34 except for us. Why are we not hosting...heard we did not put a bid in...Texas Tech should be coming to us or at the very least we play at TCU! Bull Shit politics...take care of the Power 5!

    Soccer Gets Blasted 4-0 by ODU

    Win Win Win! RPI is 28, our team beat Rice 2-0 and ODU the home team in the tournament lost tonight 3-2 OT! Guess we have the smarter coach, Hedlund rested his players against ODU and when you look at the stats she pretty much plyed her starters the whole game. Well it backfired, ODU is out and UNT will be playing La Tech Friday night at 7pm.

    Soccer Beats FAU 2-1 (battle of unbeatens)

    If Rice beats FAU tomorrow at home and our women take care of FIU which we should, then we will rap up the #1 seed/title. Last two games would be more about RPI/rankings. Rice needs the win tomorrow to get into the tournament...look for the upset!
