Tab Ramos and the Soccer Speed Trap
Comparing his very ordinary current under-20 team with the highly promising version he had two years ago, Coach Tab Ramos says that the new team is "more dynamic, and we have speed on this team."

"Did I want to pull out [of the U.S. team] this close to a World Cup? No. I by no means wanted to leave U.S. Soccer this close to a World Cup, but you don't get to choose these things."

-- Paul Rogers, the U.S. women's national team goalkeeper coach since 2009, on leaving the team to take a job as the goalkeeper coach with MLS's Houston Dynamo. Rogers says the move is unrelated to the 30-day suspension of Hope Solo. None of Solo's backups have world championship experience. (SI.com)
