UCLA soccer coach displays poor sportsmanship after NCAA title match

2

Usually, it's considered good sportsmanship for the losing coach to congratulate his opponent after a big game.

UCLA coach Jorge Salcedo, however, decided instead to take jabs at UVA, criticizing the team's style of play and claiming the Hoos weren't the better team.

UCLA fans tended to be critical of UVA's defensive style. That's silly; UVA has been playing a defensive style all year, especially in the College Cup. Defense is the team's strength, after all, so why not play to it? It just seems like that type of talk should be beneath a head coach.
