College soccer coaches and the college admission scheme

15 May 2019 - 08:11 AM

Unless I missed it, there has not been a thread here on soccer and the college admission scheme.

 

Why didn't they know that this was illegal and morally wrong? Why did they go along? Why did they risk their future? Probably the same can be said of any criminal activity. People do it anyway primarily because they think they will not be caught.

 

Here is a link to a guilty plea.

Education

Rare is a news article about education that is not about some sort of scandal or crime or social injustice. As a retired teacher, I found this article very interesting and perhaps foreboding. It may also be of interest to pre-teens and to parents of young children.

Found this compelling human-interest story of a former soccer player now a scout at RB Leipzig.

Adams in USA lineup

I will not be surprised if the nats play Adams at right back in order to protect Prince Michael's position as the defensive midfielder.
