ExtraTime Radio: Why common sense and Maryland's Sasho Cirovski say college soccer must evolve
Change Is Coming
David and Andrew went to Red Bull Arena for Arsenal's historic friendly on US soil, and to nobody's surprise, Simon has a strong opinion about the match. He also runs the rule over Toronto FC's displeasure with the refereeing in their 2-1 home loss to Sporting KC, and the guys attempt to give Revs fans some hope after their eighth straight MLS defeat.
Following reports of a proposal designed to change the face of Division I men's soccer, the guys welcome Maryland head coach Sasho Cirovski to explain what's happening, why and what the future might hold. If you care about soccer in the United States, you'll want to take a listen.
Finally, after David got hate mail, Simon reads his own and responds. And don't forget the book club is coming this week, with Thirty one nil author James Montague scheduled to join the discussion. What do you want to read next? We want to hear them!
