Far-Fetched Friday: USWNT Fails to Win World Cup


Another World Cup is coming up this summer, this time in New Zealand and starting in July. I am here to give a verdict based on the growing parity in women's soccer that I discussed here. I don't know who will win the Women's World Cup but will predict that it will not be the U.S. Women's national team.

Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This Friday, we look at the Women's World Cup.

It may seem like a cop-out to say one team won't win the world cup, but I think it's fair, considering the USWNT has reached three finals in a row, won the last two, and finished in the top three of all eight tournaments so far, and have walked away as champions in four of eight world cups. At the very least, they are the overwhelming favorites.

I'm not going to say the U.S. is a falling giant because the talent is still there, it's just other teams are catching up. It's like the one athlete who was bigger, faster, and stronger than everyone at a young age and dominated, but as the other kids grew up and hit puberty, the athlete was still a good player but no longer nearly as dominant. In this case, the evidence for this is the fact that the U.S. finished in the top four of the first six U20 World Cups between 2002 and 2012, but since then, they have only managed a finish as high once in four tournaments and even failed to advance past the group stage in 2022 for the second tournament in a row.

The world is catching up, and this World Cup will display that as the national team fails to win a third straight.

With the decision by Folarin Balogun to opt for the U.S. Men's National team, the program's ceiling increases significantly. There is now a legitimate chance for a deep World Cup run because, for the first time, the U.S. might have a world-class player on their hands.

The talk of the college sports world is LSU women's basketball and their incredible roster. Continuing in our coverage of the team, I am here to make a declaration about the team. LSU basketball will go undefeated next season.

You may have missed it, but LSU has assembled the best college basketball roster in history. They already had Angel Reese, the final four MVP, and Flau'jae Johnson, the SEC freshman of the year. So naturally, they added two All-American transfers in Hailey Van Lith, one of the best-returning guards in college basketball, and Aneesah Morrow, who, at...
