Lionel Messi and Barcelona weren’t the only team to overturn a deficit in Champions League on Tuesday.

The Seattle Sounders hosted the second leg of its CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal matchup against Tigres. Things went from bad to worse when the Mexican club scored a first half goal to extend the deficit to 2-0.

It’s about to get real. College soccer officially begins this week (like, real actual games, not the fake ones we promote because we can’t wait) and I couldn’t be more excited. I feel like Sydney Leroux right now.

TopDrawerSoccer.com released its women’s rankings this morning, which you should definitely check out, and the 91st Minute is hereby dropping its own rankings preview we’ve titled: 10 reasons to be excited for college soccer.

So if he wants to rock a do that’s a cross between Neymar and Foghorn Leghorn: we support, I say, we support the man!

 

9. Florida State’s new mascot, Cimarron: As good as the Seminoles will be this year (and we expect them to be really good), don’t be surprised if Cimarron steals the show. He’s already been hanging out with the FSU cheer squad all summer (lucky dog … I mean …)  and if he somehow manages to connect with the world’s most famous ‘baby horse’ … well, that’ll be game over.
