    In case anyone has an interest in collegiate soccer...

    University of Akron is ranked #1 in all 5 collegiate rating polls and have been in most polls since day one.
    They are 14-0 with 10 shutouts...
    They have defeated a number of ranked opponents
    including three Big 10 schools... Indiana, OSU and yesterday Michigan

    They also landed the #1 rated 2009 recruiting class that are now freshmen with at least 8 Parade All Americans... so the next few years looks just as promising. They lost their All American goalie to graduation and this years goalie is a Freshman. He gets little action because most opponenets get very few shots on goal - phenomenal defense.

    College soccer: Akron 2, Michigan State 1
    Penalty kick helps Zips stay unbeaten
    Goal by Gavin breaks tie, gives top-ranked UA win over Spartans
    By Michael Beaven
    Special to the Beacon Journal

    The top-ranked Zips were able to respond to Michigan State's challenge and come away with a 2-1 victory at Lee Jackson Field. Junior Blair Gavin scored a goal off of a penalty kick with 15:24 remaining in the game to break a 1-1 tie and help the Zips keep their perfect season going.

    The Zips (17-0-0) are the No. 1 team in the country in all five national polls.

    That Spartans (10-5-2) goal was the first the Zips have allowed at home this season.

    The Zips held an advantage in shots (16-6), shots on goal (8-2) and corner kicks (3-1).

    Ahhh.. but you can bet your booty, the Crew would love to have a piece of these fellas... in due time... many of them are gonna be in this tier.. they're just babies now... many freshman and sophs...

    Looks like a dynasty in the making.. for at least the next couple years...

    You don't go 17-0, #1 in the nation this year and last... and not have a few players MLS wants...
