Very little to objectively make that conclusion

Results between comparable teams have shown MLS sides to be competitive with 2nd level sides from England and even some 1st division sides from other nations. They are a far cry from the EPL and top Championship clubs, but then so are most other clubs in England and elsewhere. The drop off is drastic. It is even more pronounced in most other nations (Germany being the probable exception). If you watch soccer from anywhere other than the peak clubs and/or few top leagues, the quality is highly overrated. Go try to watch some lower-level Eridivsie teams, for example. You won't be impressed.

That said, college soccer has a similar quality drop off, just starting at a much lower ceiling. The top few teams can be decent, (especially when playing each other), but below them it gets ugly fast and UVa is not currently among the elite group.
