I did notice that UCLA has a 6-1 edge in corner kicks.

Really?

Gametracker is working fine for me. I mean... as well as soccer Gametracker can. You get the score and time, play-by-play (shots, fouls, corner kicks and substitutions are really all you can take stats for) and a box score.

I realize Gametracker can't tell you much, but it's not totally useless. Smile

Huh. It was blank when I opened it up. I'll try it again.

I know, there aren't a lot of stats you can keep in soccer. I don't see anything like VORP, WARP, or EqA coming along anytime soon. Smile

Ooooh... did you miss the "Click here to continue to Gametracker" link? That's really easy. It's near the bottom of the screen.

Here's the direct link, I think:

Ha ha, yeah.

But actually I know there are some companies that are really getting into different metrics for soccer... lots of stuff like possession, good passes, defense, etc. Wish I could remember the name of one particular company... I think ESPN had a big article about it a few months back when the EuroCup was going on.

Well shoot. I'm sure USD wishes they could have that one back... losing is one thing. Losing on an own goal is entirely something else.

I think ESPN had a big article about it a few months back when the EuroCup was going on.

For Euro 2008 they had 16 extra cameras mounted on the stadiums and GPS for the sole purpose of capturing the distance covered by each individual player during the game, in addition to covering total passes and total successful passes per player, plus tackles and all sorts of other stuff... The stats are out there, its just a matter of having the technology to quantify them.

They sometimes show the distance covered thing when guys get subbed off in the Champions League. It's interesting...now the stat heads need to figure out what to do with it (and they will).

When I went to the UCLA site to get GameTracker, I happened to notice that the OSU Beavs took the Bruins to 2 overtimes before falling. They also are one of the few teams to score a goal against UCLA this year. Not a bad effort by the orange and black.

Our ladies played 90 tough minutes, and nearly scored a few times as well. UCLA was feeling the pressure from USD and it was one of the few times I have seen UCLA yelling at each other during a game. The own goal was brutal - one of our best defenders tried to clear the ball and ended up misdirecting it at our goal, and our goalie actually blocked it into the top post, then it into the the side post and trickled in past her.

The game really could have gone either way, and it felt like an final 4 match. I sat near the USC coaches and they said the same thing - it really was an awesome game. I really feel USD is closing the gap towards being a top 15 team. San Diego has made the NCAA's 8 of the last 10 years, but this is the first time I felt they could make a run into the tournament a few rounds. Lots of talent coming back even with the seniors graduating.

Best of luck Pilots in the tournament and do the WCC proud!

Thanks a lot gousd. USD is one tough team. Too bad about the own goal. Man that will stick with those players for a while. But they have to put it behind them.

Sounds like UCLA is vulnerable to me. Although they are extremely difficult to score on, they don't seem to overwhelm offensively - at least at this point in the season. Be interesting to see if they make it through to the finals. Very Happy

prediction - UCLA loses to UNC, and maybe to USC. I see a UNC-Pilot final. I also think Stanford will have their hands full with Rutgers, and we may be playing Rutgers again.

I noticed while listening to the game that the announcers kept commenting on how much UCLA misses Sydney Leroux, who is playing for the U20 team. They obviously didn't plan well for her absence, and don't have a clue as to what it's like to lose three players! I don't think they get past USC.

I don't see why opposing players don't just shot for the top of the net, UCLA's keeper is only 5-4.
