Outlook: The Tigers matched the program's worst record since 2000 and finished with a sub-.500 conference record for the first time since joining the league in 2002. The team has some scorers on attack and talent on defense, but its fate could depend on the development of the midfielders, who will be counted on to break down opposing defenses.
