Lebron James is probably to tall for soccer, but I get the point. Honey Badger, Reggie Bush, athletes of that caliber playing soccer imagine that.
Make no mistake about this: the US has already made ENORMOUS progress in soccer the last 25-30 years. ...

AU played for a NC. Aggies haven't sniffed that instance since Jesus inhabited the earth.
No comparison. AU cheats but they can win some championships eventually. Aggies are perennal pretenders.

All classes are "on paper" at this point.

All others given the right breaks could end up being great classes also. Everyone in the SEC did well....

aTm "rise" is a relative term. They are yet to accomplish anything truly relevant. They have ONE good season to their name. Going 11-2 and winning the Cotton is a nice feat; but basically EVERYONE but MSU in the west has had at least that much success in the last 6-7 years in at least one season. ...

Auburn is a real Schizophrenic program. No one, in short periods of time, goes from really outstanding to really horrendous seasons and vice versa as quickly as Auburn does. We saw it under Bowden, Tuberville and Chizick.
