UCI returns everybody except defensive captain and center back Texeira. Palacios, arguably the best player in the BWC last season in 16 games, won't be taken away by international duty in the last month. So, the situation is more or less returning the whole team (except Texeira) and adding Palacios for BWC. Could be a Top 50 team, if they get some improvement from players like Miclat and Bzeih. Newsom is an outstanding GK.
: I'll take a stab at this. It's mostly the same
: team from last year with notable losses of
: Rangel (attacking midfielder), #6 Dominguez
: (holding mid), and the GK McKeown. Also,
: need to replace starting outside back Akaogi
: (right back or left back?)
: Two big time transfers become eligible this
: season: Pingel (who might be Rangel's
: replacement) and GK Hummel. I guess Hummel
: will start.
: Nice recruiting class. The crown jewel
: appears to be Siquieros.
: There is an abundance of forwards. So, it's
: not clear how the defense will be sorted out
: with two starters having gone on.
: All in all, should be a very good team.
: Possibly Top 25 if all goes right.
