Dan Beyer & Aaron Torres, in for Covino & Rich, discuss the USMNT exit from Copa America and if we as country have unrealistic expectations for the team.   

Aaron Torres: “We treat it like it's a Major League sport, when in essence like it's basically a AA league. This is the only thing that I can think of in sports where I think Americans as a fan base, are out of line with expectations. Instead of taking it for what it is, we're mad because we feel like we should be the best.” 
Dan Beyer: "It's difficult when these numbers are telling you that you're a top 15 team in this world and for some reason just can't beat anybody, that's what's frustrating.”
