Oct 6 NSCAA poll is out

Post by Geezaldinho on Tue Oct 07, 2008 9:59 am

UP held steady at #3. In fact, they gained a little ground in the National voting. The mystery of why Washington State made it into in the top 25, and UW didn't continues, but at least UW Gained some votes.

Geez, do you get the same feeling as I do that some (probably East Coast) coaches are confusing the two Washington schools? Perhaps some of those votes are really intended for UW?

The West Region NSCAA coaches rankings also have WSU ahead of UW. In addition, they have UCLA ahead of Portland. WSU, by the way, will be losing a defender to the U20s.

UPSF, thats what I thought, WSU has a relatively weak schedule, and not a great record within that schedule, how they are ranked is pretty much beyond me. Chalk it up to user malfunction.

Guest resident works, Geezer. Are you here to stay? Bring any friends along with you?

And where did you ditch the ship? Area 51 got it?

hey...I just noticed that Monmouth got one vote. I didn't even know they were D1.

Anyone know anything about Monmouth's team?

Monmouth has actually been pretty good some years. They vied with Portland at one time as the smallest school in D1. Their most notable player of all time is US National team Captain Christie Rampone.

Monmouth, huh? All I know is that the school is in New Jersey... I think they're the Hawks. Their basketball team has made the tournament once or twice over the past decade, and I think they are in the same conference as St. Francis and Farleigh Dickinson and Quinnipiac and those schools... the Northeast Conference.

But as for specifics of their team... no clue.

Rampone's is an interesting story. Formerly Christie Pierce, she was also a co-Captain of Monmouth's basketball team and starting point guard.
She was trying out for the WNT at the same time her basketball team was making a bid for the tournament and had to skip a bunch of the key games. That was back when UNC had a lock on the WNT.

Portland Moves to #3 in team goals against average and Kelsey slides up to #2. The good teams are starting to shake out and move to the top.

GREAT JOB!

I'd be very happy if Kelsey was never considered for any awards other than being on a championship team. I'm sure she and Garrett both feel the same way.

If your keeper is getting awards, it means your defense sucks and she's working hard.

I want to see her leaning on the post filing her nails.

Wrong Monmouth...

Post by FANatic on Thu Oct 09, 2008 8:41 am

Big OOOPS for FANatic. I confused New Jersey's D1 Monmouth University with Oregon's D3 Monmouth College. Embarassed

(Both have women's soccer teams and I've seen Oregon's Monmouth's scores in the newspapers for years. Just reacted and thought it was them, not knowing they were D3.)

Christie Rampone never played a game for a U.S. Youth National Team. She didn’t play in the Olympic Development Program, and heck, she didn’t even go to college on a soccer scholarship.

When invited via fax and mailed airline ticket to her first training camp in 1997 (she had never spoken to anyone with U.S. Soccer prior to getting on the plane), she had so little concept of what it meant to play for National Team that she brought all her own training gear, and the laundry detergent to wash it. She even brought her own sheets and blankets.

Those who were there will tell you that she didn’t say more than a few words the entire camp.

One of the few conversations went like this:

“Where do you go to college?,” she was asked.
“Monmouth, in New Jersey,” she answered.
“Is that Division III?”
“Um, no, we’re Division I.”

Today, 10 years and 179 caps later, she is the captain of the U.S. Women’s National Team

I cut and pasted an excerpt from USSoccer.com that I remembered reading about Christie Rampone. I love how she wasn't cuddled through the national youth programs and ODPs...and then especially showing up for her first Senior Team camp with her own sheets, blankets and laundry detergent. That's so endearing and makes her the perfect choice for Captain. As I read her story again....it reminded me of Keelin's quick rise and emergence unto the national and international stage!!

GO PILOTS!!!

Just one small point from a guy who is very red in the face.

Western Oregon University was initially founded in 1856 by pioneers who named it Monmouth University. I don't believe it kept that name for too long. (See Wiki below.)

Wiki - 1856 Monmouth U.

(Rumor has it they had a mean ladies soccer program!)
