Although it is rarely covered by the traditional media giants of the state, Nebraska is filled with exciting and competitive collegiate soccer programs. In fact, Nebraska contains a grand total of THIRTY programs for men and women. Those thirty programs compete across a wide variety of collegiate levels including Division I, Division II, Division III, NAIA, and junior college.
Nebraska Soccer Talk is here to examine, cover, and promote all of these teams. This task has been made a bit more challenging by the circumstances created by COVID-19. Depending on the playing level, conference, and school, the season outlook changes drastically. Roster information can also be in flux, depending on the school. Despite these challenges, our staff attempted to put together the best program summaries possible. To our knowledge, we are the only outlet providing such coverage to our state’s college programs.
Just like Nebraska Soccer Talk, this column will grow and become more in depth as the years pass. In the future, we hope to provide sideline coverage of games, facility features, coach and player interviews. We look forward to the journey ahead. Thank you for being a part of our community. The sport of soccer is growing in Nebraska, and we intend to see it thrive.

NEST Analysis – A disappointing 2019 season goes against the norm for Concordia. Generally this is a high level program that performs well above a losing or .500 record. The Bulldogs belong in the title conversation as they have proven to be a premier Nebraska team.
A resurgence has taken place thus far into the 2020 season and that is no surprise to those that are familiar with the team. A return to GPAC contention and superb soccer demonstrates the resilient mindset that has been established by Coach Thomas Goines early on in his Concordia tenure. With their season resuming in March, it will be fascinating to observe how the Bulldogs will carry their regular season momentum into the GPAC tournament.
