Re: Is it time to consider new leadership?

With the loses to Pacific and Saint Mary's, picked by the WCC coaches to finish last and next to last, respectively, Portland's first steps into conference play is looking like the start of a sad death march.

Through Sunday, the 3-8-1 record is the poorest start since the 1983 team finished 2-11-3, an all-time worst record safe for at least a year.

Can anyone who went to last night’s game give me a sense of the vibe around the coaches and players? Urgent? Desperate? Calm and collected?

They seemed calm and collected. They seemed to play with much more intensity than we have seen all season. Several players who up to now have not seen much playing time got a chance to play and gave good accounts of themselves. For long stretches of the game they held their own with Santa Clara. Unfortunately the final score was disappointing, however I thought they made a significant step in the right direction with this game. I'm looking forward to Sunday's game, also looking forward to today's Thorns game.

I would agree. Possession was relatively equal. 2 or 3 Pilot shots off the woodwork in the first half. A breakaway goal in the second half. The Broncos showed more skill and creativity in the final third--to me, that was the difference in the game.

SCU was the better team, but I admired the grit the young Pilots showed trying to dig out of their 2-0 halftime deficit.

There was good energy in the stands coming from adults and soccer youths alike, many of whom were probably there because each of the UP players wrote a note to season ticket holders asking them to buy pink t-shirts they had designed in partnership with Portland Gear. They sold out early, but there should be more available for all future women's games at Merlo in October.  All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.

My lengthy note came from Rachel Lusby....without it, I would not have known of the pink shirts.

There's one more question, which speaks to the title of this thread: "How will UP officials react?" The historical record in the table clearly shows that they have been extremely patient with the current staff. Extremely.

Thought I'd add this year's line to my chart from above, even though we're only four games in:

Year  Fin   Team    Pts  G  PPG    GD
2007    1        8    21   7  3.00   +19
2008    1        8    21   7  3.00   +20
2009    1        8    21   7  3.00   +32
2010    1        8    19   7  2.71   +11
2011    5        9    12   8  1.50   +4
2012    2        9    17   8  2.13   +12
2013    1       10    24   9  2.67   +12
2014    5       10    13   9  1.44   -2
2015    5       10    12   9  1.33   +2
2016    6       10    10   9  1.11   -7
2017   10      10     0    4  0.00   -7

In a battle between two teams at the bottom of the conference standings, the double-overtime loss to San Francisco was the first ever for the Pilots since the two schools began playing in 1986.

Some of us stayed until the bitter end, but some like the Villa Drum Squad and other students, didn't even show up to support their classmates.....sad. Evil or Very Mad

Neither here nor there, but I noticed that the Drum Squad hasn't posted anything on their Facebook or Instagram pages yet this season. They are active on Twitter still, but it seems to me like that's probably the least-impactful of the social media options when it comes to spreading the word among students.

To be fair, there wasn’t much of a showing from the drum squad for the Men’s most important game of the year.

Kudos to the few who did show ( I counted 8 at the Anthem), but it doesn’t say much for the overall dorm support.
