I'll tell you one thing, the Horizon League is getting better and better.
Look at Cleveland State, they beat Loyola last Friday and we knew they were going to be tough. We played what looked like some of our best futbÃ³l of the season, but we ended up tying CSU 1-1 after giving up a bad goal. Our goal was a terrific build up that went through the feet of about seven players.
Our week just keeps getting tougher as well. Tonight (Wednesday) we take on Wisconsin in our annual "White Out" match. On Friday, WSU comes to Flames Field and then next Wednesday we play the #1 team in the country, Akron, which will be our biggest challenge of the season.
Like I said in my last post, we're sticking together and coming together even more. We see the talent, and with some favorable results we will be right back in the Top 25 mix.
Big one tonight!! Talk to you all soon!
