College sports in the US

The culture of college sports, is something that we do not have at all in Norway. A lot of people here have their whole tuition paid for playing on the school's team, which can be up to 10 000,- per semester. This makes that a lot of people are practicing very hard to get in on the sports team, and make the level pretty high. Yesterday, I got the chance for the second time to play with the schools soccer team.We played against an Serbian team and won 14-3, whereas two that I scored. The school team is very international, and has players from ten different countries such as UK, Australia, Brazil and France to mention a few.

I don't know if we are in the NCAA or not.. In that case, I don't think we will be in the top leagues..

Thibault, next time I'm at Graspop or somewhere else in Belgium, I will drink you under the table! ;P

Stritch is in the NAIA and will probably become a NCAA II school in a few years.
