Ekic Named to Watch List -- SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Emina Ekic on MAC Hermann Preseason List

Image result for emina ekicWhen the MAC Hermann Watch Lists were announced earlier this week, a familiar face showed up. For the second year in a row,

Emina Ekic was named to the preseason watch list for the “Heisman of College Soccer.” At least they got her name right this year. She appeared as “Emma” Ekic on last year’s watch list. Ekic did not advance to the semifinalist list last season and the award ultimately went to Stanford’s Catarina Macario, who appears on this list again this year.

Including Ekic, this year’s watch list includes 12 ACC players (of 61 total listed). Ekic will be a key factor on the team this year, as I expect we’ll see additional focus on the offensive end. If she can maintain the brilliance we’ve seen at times for a full season, we’ll definitely be seeing her name stay on this list throughout the rounds of cuts.

With just two weeks left until the opening exhibition match, I’ll have a bit more soccer content coming (surprise). Look forward to a full season preview next week. I am traveling this weekend so don’t quite have time to get it out.

We are also looking forward to an interview with Coach Karen Ferguson-Dayes, which is in the works. Hopefully we can get that done before the new season starts. Either way, the summer slump is nearly over. You know which sport I’m most excited for, so let us know which ones you’re looking forward to.

Cardinal Couple Radio Hour

As I mentioned, I’m out this week, but we also learned that Jared and Daryl will be unable to join in studio.

That leaves Jeff and Paulie alone for a throwback two man episode of the Cardinal Couple Radio Hour. They managed to hold down the fort for years prior to the expansion of the radio crew and have done so earlier this summer as well, so look forward to another exciting edition nonetheless.

It'll be Worldwide Jeff vs. the Cardinal Couple Radio Quiz this week. Given how the crew last week would have been academically ineligible for this week, based on their scores, the real question here is whether Paulie needs to make it an easier test of Cardinal knowledge for the participants. You're always invited to play along at home.

The Cardinal Couple Radio Hour comes to you at 11 a.m. from our gracious hosts at WCHQ FM, which is available at 100.9 FM,, the WCHQ App, or on Facebook Live.

Until next time, Go Cards!
