I was disappointed when I learned that ESPNSoccernet was taking a new direction that would not include college soccer coverage. After all, I had covered the college soccer beat for four seasons. It might not be the most high-profile beat, but I’ve found covering the college game really rewarding.

I brooded for a day (when you cover a beat that long, you get attached to it), then set out to find somewhere else that could use a college soccer writer.

I had previously been approached by College Soccer News about writing for them, but it just didn’t work out at that time. I reached out to the editor about contributing this season, and I will be writing three columns for the site throughout the course of this season.

The first one ran this week and focuses at No. 1 Akron. The Zips had a near perfect season in 2009, but lost the NCAA title in a shootout. I look at how they’ve bounced back and how they’re doing now.
