It does suck and does mean something to miss the Olympics ...

but I heard US Soccer experts name the top U23 players in the system and abroad. This U23 team was our E/F team in the pecking order. The young talent is on senior team or abroad, A few playing in the MLS. It sucks now... but the future looks bright going forward.

Here's the bigger issue ... the coaching. Who the bell picked thus squad? It was a bunch of athletes and no technicians. Just like basketball, you can't have 5 Diakite's on the court. You need to throw in a Jerome or Perrantes here and there. The US values athelticism over technicians too much. You need a mix. This U23 team had no creativity. The coaching was really bad.

I think Berhalter is on the right track for the senior side. However, I wish he let go of some of his favorites with little upside and mistake prone.
