Here's an interesting "Did you know?"

In 1993, the South Carolina men's soccer team played for the national championship and lost 3-0. Their opponent and national champion that year? The Virginia Cavaliers - coached by Bruce Arena.

And he is ABSOLUTELY the right hire right now to get this team qualified for the World Cup.

US Soccer was too quick on the draw with Jurgen. He was building a good team and bringing up young players.

I am so against this hire of Bruce Arena! I sure as hell hope he proves me wrong but I just don't see him doing much for the USA.

Arena is a short term hire who knows the national team and whose purpose is to get us to the World Cup. During the middle of the season around the world and the MLS playoffs going there is really no one else to hire. Perfect hire for this position and purpose.

I was mixed at first. However after reading about him and how he interacted with the team I completely understand. He rubbed a lot of people the wrong way and was out there at times. There was a reason he was fired at Bayern and German national team. His tactics and methods have been questioned and the recent results were a disaster. His comments over the weekend sealed his fate.

I think he did a lot of good things. As just Technical Director or even in Gulati's role I think Klinsmann would be great. However his time as manager was done. I'm not sure the timing was perfect. Or maybe it was. I liked him a lot but I think he took us as far as he could as manager.

It's all Gamecocks right now. However we have a must win match tonight against Honduras if we want to qualify for the World Cup. It's a late one starting at 10:55.

6-0 over Honduras. Excellent performance. Dempsey had a hat trick and now only 2 goals away from Donovan. Pulisic may be on his way to being the greatest US men's player ever.

On to Panama tonight. A win tonight and the US is back in the World Cup based on standings. Still a long way to go in qualifying but would be nice to be secure in the standings.

Last night wasn't great. Pulisic and Nagbe looked good but overall I thought the team's decision making and build up were slow. The D was susceptible to crosses and are lucky to not have given up a goal considering the number of quality chances T&T had.

We have never really had a stout defense so I don't usually expect much. Nagbe and Pulisic were by far the best players on the pitch last night I think. Fabian really needs to step up on Sunday and a little hot take here from me but I think Acosta should start over Bradley, Jozy should be on the bench for Wood as well.

I am all for that. I wouldn't mind seeing Fabian move to the back 4 again. I don't see him as a midfielder unless he acts like defensive midfielder and gives us 5 at the back against Mexico.

Starting XI is a bit of a head scratcher. Hopefully it works out.

A strange lineup for the US in the match against Mexico. Tactically different as well as some of the guys picked. However, it worked. Got a point against Mexico in Azteca.

Good result against a better team. Bradley, Acosta and Cameron were solid. I just wish that Acosta would have foul Chicharito on the counter. It would have saved a goal and possibly won the game.

New kit but only for the Gold Cup...

I'm 100% onboard for making hoops our always jersey. US needs a brand and I think that hoops is the answer. There was an extensive article written about this topic a year or 2 ago.

They resemble the Barcelona kits from a couple years back when they wore hoops.
