Believe it or not, we’re less than a week away from playoff soccer. There is still a full slate of regular season games to be played on Monday, but the seeding meeting will be held on Wednesday morning and by Thursday we’ll be playing outbracket games. And as always, we have some big plans to get you set for all of the action right here on the blog.
I’ll be out covering a game tomorrow afternoon, and then I’ll be spending the rest of the night crunching numbers to come up with some seeding projections. I have a pretty good idea of what they’ll look like at this point, but tomorrow’s games should help to clarify a few things. After I post my seeding projections on Monday night, I figure that Tuesday will be the perfect time to release new Power Rankings.
Once I get my hands on the official seeds on Wednesday and have some time to digest everything, I’ll be hosting a live chat that night at 7:30 to take all of your playoff questions. It’s an exciting time for LoHud soccer fans, so be sure to stay tuned!
