Also Macario leaving early was not good for Stanford success

In reply to: PSG is an impressive landing ground. Just like Lindsey Horan  posted by Domerduck

In 2019 Macario was a junior and she along with sophomore Sophia Smith led Stanford to the 2019 NCAA National Championship. Both then left after that year to become pros and forgo eligibility. Macario as the Observer pointed out went to Lyon while Smith was the #1 pick by the Portland Thorns in the NWSL. Both are National Team quality players like Korbin Albert.

Since they left here's what Stanford has accomplished in the NCAA tourney:
2020 Didn't qualify with a .500 record.
2021 1st round exit in the tourney
2022 2nd round exit in the tourney

Let's hope ND doesn't fall back like this.
