    I would say that we are interestingly sitntarg to run into the mature soccer nation problem of not being able to get all our pros released, eg, Morales for the U23s. Whereas before we might be able to get most of the players easily from college teams and MLS, we now have enough players spread around where it's harder to get them all into camp with every team's approval. So the era of lengthy pre-quali residencies or camps is probably done and we now need the ability to cajole teams player by player into releases.It's interesting because it's a more serious, professional pool but it may be harder to get results from it.
