    Butler Men's soccer is ranked #10 in the country and just opened up the Big East with an overtime win at Villanova on this goal.



    I know very little about soccer, so you won't find any expert analysis from me, but I think it's about time we got a thread up to discuss a national title contender on campus.

    Though I'm not a soccer fan, I am a Butler fan. So I found myself watching the game's live stream while working.

    It was a VERY exciting game. Goldsmith's header--while being bracketed by 2 Villanova defenders & with the goalie crashing in on him--was truly stoopid. And the announcers mentioned that, with this win, the Dawgs may have done enough to secure an at-large selection to the NCAA Men's Soccer national tournament--win or lose in the championship game. Very smoove.

    Good luck to the men's soccer squad on Sunday!

    It's funny. I actually watched the second half and both OT of last night's match. I didn't even intend to. I was searching for some WC Conmebol Qualifiers since I couldn't find them on tv (damn BeIn Tv and your Saudi Prince owner) and just stumbled across the match. The funny part was on the final, game-winning play, I was actually yelling at the kid who got the assist, "What are you doing?!? Work the ball out wide and drive the flank!!! Why are you passing it in from..." *goal

    Incredible flick on header by Goldsmith and our goalie played outstanding. Great game

    According to the Big East Conference website, the game starts at 12N, EST. Folks in Indianapolis will be able to take in the contest if they'd like to. (There's also a women's basketball game against Bradley at 1P in Hinkle.)

    Love goals like that. Nothing too fancy, just well executed.

    Actually Butler is ranked 21st and IU is ranked 7th and they play tomorrow night.

    Edit: Depending what polls you look at. But the most updated one is the 21st & 7th in the RPI polls instead of the Coaches poll.

    Men's team not ranked in the most recent coaches poll, but certainly would be if they win, perhaps even draw vs IU... In related news, the BU Women's soccer team is ranked #22 in the coaches poll, first time in a long time (ever?) I believe. Good year so far for the soccer programs.

    I didn't know it was possible to play overtime in soccer and neither team wins, but then again a lot of US youth soccer rules and practices don't make sense...
