    ...this assumes ATLs strategy doesn't change in the 2nd leg. Up less than 3 goals and they stay out of the prevent defense (which seems much more effective in the European version of football)

    GHSA coaches were also briefed about the possibility before the season started.

    Yes but at that point, it's pretty much one of those "Oh we'll worry about crossing that bridge when/if we get to it".
    The county I grew up in (Marion County) will play Clinch County tonight and the winner is one of the teams affected. My sister, a teacher at MCHS, and several other hometown friends had posted the "game will now officially be moved" statement within minutes of the win by United.

    As I said, many of the adults may not like it but the kids are loving it. Pretty sure they're gonna shut down the entire frigging school for the day so everyone can drive up to "the big city" for the game and the kids get a day out of school because of it.

    Yeah, and a good number of the non-metro bumpkins just pulled up to the bridge and are absolutely shocked that they have to accommodate a sissy, communist sport. The reaction to the schedule change has been ridiculous.

    They should probably worry about winning tonight's games. Otherwise, it won't really matter to them. :)

    Wait, does that mean since I’ll be at the game, I’m going to miss Gus Johnson calling the game???
    Edit: apparently CBS has gotten rid of the Gus Johnson soundboard I was going to link here.

    We are favored for what it is worth.

    We have the better team.

    Having said that, soccer is a game that is a bit of a crapshoot. Luck plays a pretty big role in soccer.

    I hope Josef Martinez doesn't wind up playing on a Premier League team in Britain in 2019

    Unfortunately, I think MLS is still some years out from a time with its best won’t get poached by Europe, but, if the league keeps generating this kind of excitement, that time will come soon.
