This should be proof that KSU and CSU could compete in the SEC. These are all good soccer players, but received very little playing time in the SEC. They should play a large role for KSU next year in that conference.

How is this proof Kennesaw should be in the SEC? If these players did not play while at a SEC school, then they are not at that level.

If you're getting let go of an SEC school you couldn't play there. KSU and other schools that size make a living off of rejects from bigger schools because it will help them. You may not be able to play at an SEC school but it doesn't mean you're not good enough to play against an SEC school and compete. But no way KSU is ready for SEC. That's laughable.

What it proves is too many players are going to DI schools that are above their heads.

It shows that coaches, parents and players need to be more realistic about their search.

Too many players learn too late that DI soccer is not for everyone, no matter what team you played on before then.

You may be right, but regarding KSU ...

KSU should be much stronger with these new transfers. Hopefully they will bring in a few strong freshmen too.

The original post should have said proof they CANNOT compete in the SEC. Apologies for my complete and utter lack of clarity.

disagree

There are a number of reasons for any kid to transfer. It isn't always about not being able to compete.

Maybe they were oversold on the school and the opportunity to play. Grades. Boys. Distance from home. Head coach is a jerk compared to the assistant who recruited me. The R3PL/ODP/superstar since church league kid can't handle not being the best person on the field. The D1 scholarship Mom and Dad pushed me to take so they could brag to their friends wasn't my first choice and really turned into a suckfest. The list goes on and on...

Money plays a role as well

January 25 2011, 3:24 PM 

At some point the reality of college expenses start to break through the star-eyed dreams of playing college soccer, while out-of-state.

Unless you are a superstar, in most case you are paying out-of-state tuition which is being off-set by a partial athletic scholarship, that may also be taxable income!

So, for most people, paying $15-25k out-of-pocket (or similar loans), to attend an out-of-state public school, is not worth it. Especially when you consider these same players can get Hope and an equivalent athletic scholarship to cover everything in-state.

Now, whether Kennesaw is the appropriate academic institution for all of these players, is another story.

"This should be proof that KSU and CSU could compete in the SEC. These are all good soccer players, but received very little playing time in the SEC. They should play a large role for KSU next year in that conference."

Read the above a couple times, think about it, and then tell us if it makes any sense.

Interesting

Of these four, one played in 24 games, the others 0, 2, and 8. All had all of the right credientials, ODP, State Cups, etc, but three of them barely got a sniff of the field, if that.

This falls in line with what I've heard from a couple of SEC coaches - some to my daughter, some to teammates - who were being recruited. 'I think you can help the program, but don't expect playing time until you are a junior. The SEC is a tough, physical league, and you will not last without some serious weightroom and cardio work for the first two years.'

Yes these players would make KSU & CSU stronger. However, KSU plays in a weak conference and CSU would continue to dominate DII (Peachbelt).

Monroe is going to Armstrong, not CSU. Not sure why everyone keep refering to CSU.
