“I think it would be huge because around the world, soccer is not crammed into the fall like the college game is right now. You have three months to play 20 games plus whatever playoffs. With the new schedule, you have a lot more time, especially if you suffer an injury.”

-- West Virginia  junior midfielder Jamie Meriam, supporting the proposal to split the men's college season in two and extend it into the spring. (The Daily Athenaeum)

    As an added bonus, a split season should increase the quality of officiating. Currently the limited pool of referees has to service men's and women's college games plus boys and girls high school in lots of states. A spring men's soccer season would result in a larger pool of available referees for these spring matches and would free up referees in the fall for women's matches and high school.
