Today is the day that the US are back in action as they kick off the Hex in World Cup Qualifying.

Last month we gave you all an early look at who we thought would be protected come Expansion Draft time and yesterday we decided to update that list now that the season has ended.
While I won’t pretend to even understand the Audi Player Index at all, it is pretty cool to see Walker Zimmerman climb to the top of the list for defenders in all of the league. By the way, the league defender of the year award gets handed out today.

RSL has been an interesting group to follow this offseason for a number of reasons. But their coaching situation followed up by the departure of Javier Morales has really shown me a few things about this franchise.
Again, it is an interesting time in Utah. Some of the Morales quotes from yesterday were really intriguing. RSL’s front office has to get in front of this as much as possible.
A couple other coaching changes to discuss today includes one for our rivals down south in Houston.
I’m sure it is. Though we’ve also been hearing that for the last, I don’t know, year and a half.
I missed this post from a couple weeks ago but it is still relevant to share once more. I’d love to just see Miami put on hold and let a city that is truly ready move into their slot.

Are you heading to Columbus today? If you are I am jealous.
It is kind of crazy the timeline that they two have together.
That place has haunted them for years but I wouldn’t put it past this group to find a way to get a result today.
I still don’t have a ton of faith in Jurgen Klinsmann but a win today would certainly go a long way in restoring some of it.
This is a pretty incredible piece, that also has a little Dallas flavor to it.
