not exactly....including the 90 world cup, the usa has failed to get out of the group 3 of 7 times...they made the round of 16 3 times as well, with 1 quarterfinal appearance

That is about like WKU basketball program history in NCAA tournament, anytime we brag on our history we are told it doesn't matter and its not relevant now, so it doesn't matter for USA soccer either, lol.....

Well, we know one of the reasons MLS won't be coming to Kentucky anytime ever...

$200 million for 2018 and another $200 million in 2022

http://www.businessinsider.com/fox-world...on-2017-10

To win a bidding war with ESPN, Fox agreed to pay $400 million for the English-broadcast rights to the World Cup in 2018 and 2022. With the Americans eliminated from 2018 contention, those broadcasts are most likely significantly less valuable than previously imagined.

Still not a great track record anyway you slice it, guarantee this team would have been blown out all 3 games next summer...Maybe the men should see how the women are so good...

To use an NCAA analogy I rather make the tournament and get blown out than to watch march madness from the couch.

USSF has shown a lot of the same player development and results failures as Bailliff - maybe he should take over for Gulati?

Why are you being so strange talking in the third person?

He thinks he's being cute, but it's pretty annoying... There's always the ignore list.
