College soccer isn't improving mens soccer in this country. The limits on

training time and games just doesn't allow for that. We need the 200 best 18 year olds in this country to go to academy's or overseas. We actually do a pretty good job of developing players up until about 16 and that's when other countries start to overtake us. That's because in their setups a promising 16 year old will start training with the 1st team of that club. That development is completely unmatched here in the states except for a couple of MLS academies that understand how to help players at that age.
