Agree with all of that.
Except for 1) Maryland and 2) Florida, there seems to be a rash of mediocrity this season. Towson looking good, JMU down, Hofstra down (but really young, look out next year), Louisville looking better finally, Loyola-who knows?, USC-who knows?, NU-again, who knows?, Elon (yes I said it) surprising a little, Michigan-still waiting, Army-won a couple against weak competition, but still in first year, Duke-mystery, UNC-consistently inconsistent, Penn State-winning but giving heart attacks. I know the Carter kid. Fantastic on and off the field.
You say mediocrity... I say parity. So many teams to choose from. When you get quality kids that get offers from smaller schools for twice the money than the traditional powerhouses offer this is what happens. There are very good kids on almost every roster. the Florida's' and Maryland's will always get the top kids, but now very good players have an opportunity to go someplace and play, not cheerlead from the sidelines for four years and watch the same 16 girls rotate in and out. SB was the shinning example of this last year but now there are more like Elon, and Army. Because of this girls now have a better chance to get the degrees they really want and still play

Are you really trying to say that army has a successful womens lax program already ? Glad they got a couple wins but are a long way from being considered competitive with any descent team and it will be a struggle for them to ever become so . Takes a unique kid to want to go thru that especially on the girls .

OK you're kidding right, is your reading comprehension so low that you didn't understand either post.No one said Army has a "successful" program so what are you talking about. One poster said they won a couple, I said that there an option to play at. where did you get a Successful program from that whats your agenda

Good post MKVELE I agree think the parity is really good for the sport. There are so many great players out there. Duke loses to Elon, Elon loses to Vandy, then Duke beats Louisville (who maybe was a little overrated ). As great as Florida is playing ranked 2 the have one goal wins over Unc, Cuse and Stony Brook, so they could go either way. If Maryland was removed from equation, Florida , Unc, ND, NU, SB, UVA, Princeton,Penn st, (maybe I'm missing a few. (Anyone could beat anyone which I think is great

Just curious how long it takes to stop using the term young or new coach? 10 years? And if you hand pick a team and they are not performing that's on you coach! The discord and misery by the majority of the team just might be because of the pyramid "wall of shame" being used, I mean come on, is SS taking cues from Abby Lee Miller? They should win today after all of the conditioning and humiliation this past week. Good luck girls, play your game and try to ignore the lunatic screaming on the sidelines.

Because you have elected to respond in such a douchy manner I will now make it a point to respond to your posts pointing out what seems to be in general a very ignorant view .
"SB was the shinning example of this last year but now there are more like Elon, and Army"
Now my agenda will simply be to point out what a moron you are.Your anti YJ,anti SB, anti Spallina agenda is obvious.

I don't know why you have a problem with me, but I now see your agenda.

The SB comment was meant this way (seeing as you couldn't figure it out yourself), SB not being a traditional powerhouse gave good players an alternative place to play and excel, which they have, as opposed to sitting on a bench fighting for a spot. Elon, Army, High Point, also examples of the same situation, and have surprised some people, but will not surprise anyone next year.

I have only ever said the woman at SB are playing well and never disparaged any of them, and I have never said anything about the YJ. I have stated my dislike for JS, but that is my opinion and stand by it. I don't like the guy and think he's over rated so what, how does that effect your life, why do you care are you the head of the Joe Spallina fan club, do you get paid by the amount of people that like him, I'm confused

You are very hostile, and maybe seek some help to calm down a bit, relax I'm a nobody that is beneath you right

ALL coaches are crazy when their team is young, not playing well and not winning. But, stay the course and good things will happen. You know who's considered "crazy" coaches? The coach at Wintrop, Michigan and Louisville. Oh, and almost EVERY other coach I can think of. But those three take the cake as far as I'm concerned. They've been at their positions for years too. SS...pay no attention to the YJ agenda. Coach your team your way.

Dude? You watch Dance Mom's? I wouldn't tell any of your friends that if I were you. Did CR tell you it's okay to watch it, or did you go "rogue"?

OK so we are a few weeks in. Do you take the 6 teams that have won the last 20 national championships or is this the year to take the field?

You want an example of lunatic screaming on the sidelines? Try listening to just about any club coach during the summer. The difference between them and a college coach is that for the vast majority of the club coaches it is not their only job. For a college coach it's their job, with a lot riding on each game. Also, go to a men's game and listen to those coaches...it's crazy, yet nobody says anything about them.

SS is a club coach, that's it. She doesn't understand the mental side of coaching. She hasn't had the experience and more importantly the time being truly mentored by a good coach as an asst. Just because you were a great player doesn't mean you will be a successful coach. She has a lot of knowledge but not the wisdom to put it to good use. Her teams will continue to struggle. She just doesn't relate to her players well, She had trouble relating to teammates and other kids in general in HS as well.
