By all accounts, the USA men’s national team had a great summer, but always winning bronze is getting old for coach John Speraw. As he said in part of this Q&A:
VBM: It was a pretty good summer for your team.
Speraw: Yeah, but it could have been great. That’s the feeling I’m left with, what all of us are left with. It could have been something exceptionally special. We were in a position to do that and couldn’t quite put it over the top. I thought overall it was good.
