Yeisley Gets SuperDrafted

In this year’s Major League Soccer 2010 SuperDraft, FC Dallas selected Penn State forward Jason Yeisley in the third round. He was the first Big Ten player taken and 38th overall selection of the draft. You may remember Yeisley for his blog, in which he chronicled coming back from two blown-out knees to play for the Nittany Lions. His career in MLS is not only inspiring in demonstrating that athletes can overcome critical injury, but to definitively prove that at least one of us bloggers does not spend all of his time in his mother’s basement.

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men’s soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing “personal reasons,” he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

“We expected Gorman to be there,” [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. “He was a father figure to us.”



Oof, that can’t feel good. The move isn’t completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above “going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back.”
