Nashville SC, Phoenix Rising FC and the Tampa Bay Rowdies have put themselves in a strong position to lift silverware at the end of the season.
With 35 of 36 teams in the USL Championship having played at least half of their 34-game schedule to this point, it’s safe to say that we’ve officially made the turn into the second half of the 2019 season.
And as the race for the postseason continues to heat up across both conferences, I thought it would be a good idea to check in on my preseason hot takes and see how they’re holding up in this summer heat wave.
In order to do so, I’ll be restating each of the 19 predictions for the 2019 season that I made on March 2 and then assigning a grade to them accordingly. It’s like summer school, but I’m the student and the teacher.
(Bell Rings) I guess that means class is in session, let’s get started.
