Recruiting is an ongoing process and French hopes to announce more additions. She says she is looking for "an impact player, and also just trying to build our numbers."

With that in mind, she went to Europe in early May to visit various youth academy programs.

I saw that they are replacing the scoreboards at Merlo. Are they putting a video screen in by chance or just new electronic boards? Either way, itís a welcome update Iím sure.

Saw this pic on the Twitter account. Looks like no video screens, which makes sense... they would need to be pretty huge to be visible, plus it takes a lot of manpower to run them properly. Not to mention the initial cost.

A much-needed upgrade.

I also saw this upgrade/update on twitter:

I believe the grass field will not be available until next spring.

Too bad that they couldn't squeeze a third digit into the minutes field. Given the frequency of extra time, that seems more important that the numbers of fouls and saves.

Fair point for matches using international rules, but don't NCAA rules mandate that the clock counts down to zero and that the announcer verbally count down the last 10 seconds? In which case, the clock is never set for more than 45 minutes.

I think they've been counting up to 90 minutes the last couple of years. But then they hit the limit in extra time and I don't remember how they did that.

The weather has cooperated, and the grass is in use now.

The men were practicing on the Franz grass yesterday....

Do these fields mean anything about the long term vision for the grass and artificial fields next to Merlo? I feel like the teams and intramurals badly needed extra field space when I was there which would mean that the old fields will remain in use for the time being.

What are the rules for driving down to the Franz campus to look around? Lots of signs discouraging entry.

Yeah, the signs are discouraging with all the construction that's been going on...

The best way to go is to come up Portsmouth, take a right just past the Beauchamp Center onto Strong, then take your first left onto Van Houten Ave.

As you head down the hill continue on Van Houten Ave. as it curves around to the RIGHT and becomes Van Houten Place and then eventually curves around the LEFT by the new parking lot and becomes Van Houten Court.

(I haven't been on the Franz Campus for a couple of months, but we were prohibited from going straight down the Bluff on Portsmouth to enter).

You are correct, originally the grass field wasn't going to be available until next spring....

Time to bite the bullet:

The Pilots play 20 games (not counting exhibitions).

Lots of us are really happy to have Michelle French and her staff heading the program. †But, we need to be realistic. †Data say that before the coaching change, the Pilots were in the midst of a precipitous dive. †Data also say that it takes about eight years until a program completely "belongs" to a new coach (this works as to former coach Smith, and it will work as to new coach French).

With that in mind, I'm cautioning fans to be realistic. †I'm not going to publish here what my data say the Pilots season should be based on long term trends and recent results, but fans need to know that the "should be" season will be a test of their fandom.

What I will do, game by game, is report here whether the game result is better or poorer than what the pre-season data say it should have been. †I'll do this because it will give a sense of whether the ship is turning around. †(I'm thinking it will be turning around, but I've learned that personal hopes normally don't trump the data).

PS - The Pilots have a pre-season game tomorrow (Friday) against the University of British Columbia at 4:30 pm. †It should be fun and interesting to watch. †Hopefully, there will be a decent turn out of fans.

We are the U of P!

Does anyone have any insight into streaming of this seasonís games including tonightís? I looked at the website and could find no information concerning streaming. The schedule only lists Live Stats, nothing about streaming. Iím out of state at present and was counting on watching the game today on my laptop.

They'll start streaming the women's games next Friday against N. Arizona, and the men's games on August 24th against Sacramento St. †

I don't think UP has ever, or will ever, stream exhibition games in any sport because the coaches are very reluctant to give opposing coaches any more scouting information than they absolutely have to.
