I think 11w should dedicate a page to this annual "bye week" scheduling. You know, bum squad team details, recruiting stars, player profiles with height, weight, cash paid to visiting school, all the details that make this weekend a mockery of a power 5 team.

He went from Europe to MLS... against JK's wishes. 

This, IMO, is the biggest reason for the team/player decline. Our best players moved from Europe to MLS and got paid. Good for them, bad for US soccer. They are not pressed in practice nor games. The sloppy first touches are ok in MLS. Not at international level.

This is one of the small errors that a single player made. But we have seen too many small errors by too many players. It all adds up to a slightly above average team, with 1 big win, and a bunch of close calls.

I think Urban would replace him, if there was a better player. Maybe the other guys aren't getting it done in practice. Or there is another reason why he is the best option at this point in time. We aren't privileged to all the team details.

and it could be today's technology that sheds a light into these injuries.

15 years ago, we would barely know who this player was let alone that he was injured prior to his senior year, then again midway through his senior year.

I'm not saying the kids' training today doesn't impact their bodies, just wondering if we are hearing more about them because of technology.
