If I have to read or write anything else about a certain uninspiring quarterback controversy for a certain medicore-if-lovable football team, I’m going to seize up. Simple as that. I will suffer a seizure.
So instead, let’s take a look at the Terp women’s soccer team, whose season is just underway. The team seems to have high hopes, although they may be in the minority, as they don’t seem to appear in the national rankings.
In the official season preview, there are quotes along the lines of “we can be really good if we play to our potential” and “last year we lost some games we should have won.” Sorry, but that sounds like underacheiver talk to me. I bet after a loss, they “stay positive,” and “trust the people inside this locker room.” Super.
More specifically, the big problem seems to be a lack of scoring. In their one W thus far, they won 5-0. But in their two losses, they were outscored 4-2. So maybe it’s a feast-or-famine kind of thing, which is another telltale sign of the underachiever. Still, they’ve got 11 new players this year, so I suppose some of this is to be expected. (That last link includes photos…I’ll let you click through and find the hottest player…aaaand, welcome back. Did you find her? I know, easy, right?)
So good luck to the women’s soccer team. In the monstrous shadow of the North Carolina program (arguably the most famous non-basketball women’s college sports program, except maybe Arizona softball), they have their work cut out for them every year. Here’s hoping they find their stride and strang some thangs together. Goterps.
