From college soccer truth

DM: There WILL be a mandatory roster cap announced in the next 3-4 weeks for all the sports across NCAA Division 1.

There will be maximum allowed numbers per all sports however each institution can mandate a lower number if they see fit.

The unfortunate part of this, will be, less participation opportunities in Power 4 schools but it should mean women’s soccer will be deeper across the country in all divisions talent wise.

Women’s soccer national mandate will be between 27-29 but some institutions will be as low as 26.

A new and difficult era to adapt to.

It all has to do with judges decision on revenue sharing. Lots more information to come.

wonder if this is why we've seen some transfers back to home institutions. Wasn't our roster at like 33 at one point? I know you and turbovol were discussing it a few months ago.

Some places have up to 40 athletes, but fortunately it won’t start until 2025.

Kirt Announces Tennessee Soccer's 2024 Schedule​

With a regular season slate that includes games against seven NCAA Tournament teams and three conference champions from 2023, Tennessee soccer head coach Joe Kirt announced the Lady Vols' schedule Wednesday morning.

In Kirt's third season at the helm, Tennessee looks to build off a 2023 season in which it advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the 10th time in program history.

"We are excited to announce our 2024 schedule," Kirt said. "Our staff is eager to get on the field with a deep and talented team who is set to face off against the best teams in the state as well as across the country. We look forward to welcoming fans back to Regal Stadium and are ready to get underway with the fall slate."

The 2024 season is set to kick off on Aug. 7 with an exhibition match at Virginia followed by another exhibition match at home against UNC Asheville on Aug. 11. The regular season will begin when UT heads to Indiana on Aug. 15. Five additional home matches against Chattanooga (Aug. 18), Lipscomb (Aug. 25), UCLA (Sept. 5), Florida Atlantic (Sept. 8) and Memphis (Sept. 12) along with two additional away contests at ETSU (Aug. 22) and Duke (Sept. 1) will round out the non-conference slate.

In conference play, the Lady Vols welcome five teams to Regal Stadium, facing Ole Miss (Sept. 19), Vanderbilt (Sept. 29), Missouri (Oct. 4), Auburn (Oct. 13) and South Carolina (Oct. 24). The Big Orange will face Alabama (Sept. 22), Florida (Sept. 26), Arkansas (Oct. 10), Georgia (Oct. 18) and Kentucky (Oct. 27) on the road.

Tennessee's schedule includes seven matches against teams who advanced to the 2023 NCAA Tournament. Additionally, the Lady Vols will square off with reigning champs from the PAC-12 (UCLA), AAC (Memphis) and SEC (Arkansas).

UT's 2024 opponent lineup will feature contests against six teams that were ranked inside the top-25 in the final 2023 United Soccer Coaches rankings.

The SEC Tournament will be held in Pensacola, Fla., for the third time in as many years, having previously been held in Orange Beach, Ala., for 18 of 19 seasons. The conference tournament will begin on Nov. 3 and run through Nov. 10. The first four rounds of NCAA Tournament action will be hosted at campus sites, with the NCAA Women's College Cup set for Dec. 6-9 in Cary, N.C.

Surprising to see that LVFL Hannah Wilkinson left off of the New Zealand Olympic squad. Maybe she is injured?

Seems kind of harsh considering she was one of the stars of the WC two years ago.

IMG_8980.jpeg

Tennessee Soccer alum Michelle Alozie was named to the Nigerian Women's National Team roster for the 2024 Paris Olympics, the Nigerian Football Federation announced Wednesday.

Alozie is set to make her Olympics debut but has experience with the Nigerian Women's National Team after participating in the 2023 World Cup, 2022 Cup of Nations and three various friendlies from 2021 through 2023.

The La Jolla, California, native currently plays for Houston Dash. During the 2024 season, Alozie has appeared in a vast majority of the club's NWSL games, making 14 appearances and accumulating 735 minutes of playing time. She has started in eight of those appearances and come on as a substitute in six occasions.

Alozie played at Tennessee during the 2019 season after transferring from Yale. In her lone season on Rocky Top, she scored three goals in 17 appearances.

Nigeria, who will be playing in Group C, is set to begin its 2024 Olympic run against Brazil on July 25 and will then go on to face off with Spain (July 28) and Japan (July 31) to round out group play.
