Nashville SC joins the USL with one foot already out the door after being awarded a spot in the MLS back in December. Since they’ll only be around for at minimum 1 season, and at most probably 3, I find it really hard to give a damn about the club. Why get worked up over renters? That said I guess I have to talk about them a little.

Nashville is another team calling a baseball stadium home, though they have moved the home opener against the Riverhounds…

Meet the New Neighbors: Indy Eleven

Ah Indy Eleven. The team I’m actually excited about joining the league. Indy joins us from the NASL after they finally saw the writing on the wall. Ever since coming into existence in 2014 Indy has been one of the crown jewels of the NASL. They’re a big get for the USL and will instantly become a strong rival to the Midwest teams (probably more so for Cincinnati and Louisville than us, but we’ll see).

When I say crown jewel it’s more so off the field than on it. They…

Meet the New Neighbors: Atlanta United 2


With the USL ever expanding we find ourselves with four new teams in the Eastern Conference this season. Two are brand new clubs and two are refugee’s from the sinking / sunk USS NASL. With the season quickly approaching I figure it’s a good time to take a stroll around the block and meet the new neighbors.

Capacity: 10,427
Last year: N/A
Average Attendance: N/A

2017 U.S. Open Cup: Not eligible

Well, we’re not starting this series off great. ATL UTD 2 (vomit) joins the league just checking all the boxes of what we love about some USL clubs. A “2” team with an unimaginative name and logo, check. Based a mere 35 miles from the parent club in a surburb, check. Calling a baseball stadium…

RECAP: New Era Hounds


No, not the brand. This isn’t baseball.

The Hounds came out with confidence last night. After a bit of a slow start due to the weather, Kevin Johnston sent a beautiful pass over to Tuffy Shallenberger who sent a rocket into the net.


In all seriousness last night was a good one and hopefully a night that in a couple years we can point back to as the turning point for the organization. Going into this offseason we didn’t really expect that much, but the slow buildup of changes and announcements over the last few months has really made the excitement for this season palpable. There was something in the air both at the stadium and among those watching the stream. This year could really turn out to be something special.

As for the announcements, let’s recap the big ones.
