Schools like Colgate are capable of creating dynasties or niches within specific competitive sports in Div. 1. Like Biddle, it has been more than just longevity that (has) continued to push their success along. Although it does reinforce success if the right components are put into place. Conversely, longevity doesn't seem to have a positive impact on sports programs that are just muddling through, year-to-year, once the base has been put in place. Keep your eyes on Fargo, Hays-Fort, Langel and Murphy. Has their fate been set ?

We may have been robbed last season, but we could barely keep pace with our *NEW* Patriot League member BU, which dominated us. As good as we are every season, the NCAA tournament is always a wake up call for the obscure PL. Cherish that 2-0 win over #13 Arizona in 2004!

By the end of this weekend, we'll have an idea of how this year's WSOC team plays against good competition. UCON WSOC already has 2 exhibition victories under its belt. The Huskies womens soccer team, the reigning ACC champ was voted as the favorite in the 2015 American Athletic Conference preseason coaches poll.

BC, which will play its opener Friday night against Gate WSOC PL nemesis BU. BC has been ranked 8th in the Preseason Poll among the 14 member ACC WSOC teams.
