i was pretty fired up about our team after the first few games, but now i don't know. can't stop anyone....we've given up 3 goals a game or more in our last 3 matches.

we have to beat UT for a shot at the league title....and i don't see that happening. and another loss in the league hurts for the NCAA as well.

C'mon soccer women! Go Jayhawks!
