Shout Out to Men's Soccer

Postby XU80 » Mon Sep 10, 2018 1:34 pm

I know this is a Men's BB Board but we need to recognize the Men's soccer team. Since Andy Fleming has arrived in 2010, the team continues to improve. XU will play anyone anywhere. In preseason this year, they beat #4 IU in Bloomington 2-1, Tied #3 Michigan State 0-0. Their remaining schedule includes the following ranked team#12 Notre Dame (Away), #15 Villanova (Home, Oct 6th), #20 at Georgtown and four other teams just outside the top 25 (Butler, Creighton, Marquette and their next opponent at home this Tuesday, Kentucky).

They stand 2-0-2 with a win over UC 3-1 Friday. UC is winless in the past 9 games versus Andy Fleming coached team at Xavier. X's two ties were on the road at Northwestern and Oregon St.

Their roster is a blend of US and international talent.

Check them out!!!

My Indy buddies and I had the priviledge of meeting and sitting with Andy at an X home game last year. Not only is he a great coach, but a genuinely nice man, albeit a bit on the crazy side. A true fan! And he has a Down syndrome child. I have a special admiration for Down Syndrome parents, and for DS people. They are God’s special people! I hope Andy stays at X a long time, but if we are to keep him we need to show the soccer program some love IMO.
