Normally when I write about soccer I'm making fun of it but today an injustice happened in womens college soccer and I along with many fans of University of Oregon Athletics are ticked. In one of the biggest post season snubs in Pac 10 history the University of Oregon women's soccer team did not receive an invitation to the 64 team NCAA tournament. This is the number 17 ranked Ducks who finished second in the Pac 10 coming off a weekend in which they swept the LA schools including the 2-1 overtime victory over the number three ranked and Pac 10 champion UCLA Bruins. The third, fifth and sixth place team in the conference all received invitations but not the second place team. This is a load of crap and NCAA has a lot of explaining to do!
