RM and Crabs got out coached today...it was very obvious..RM plays consists of give ball to older middies and beat somebody..problem is those holdback middies aren't that good...other kids are catching up and passing them by....love watching him tear his kids apart on sideline as they get schooled by 14 yr olds. Priceless.

One thing you are forgetting is that FCA has more than their fair share of holdbacks too. The playing field was just evened out. Glad FCA won but it is not like they are an on age team.


4 hold backs vs 12 holdbacks and 2 double holdbacks sure sounds even right?



Actually, 1 hold back and 3 late summer birthdays for FCA. Good enough to play up, now playing on grade. Talent plays up, not down.



Definitely less than Crabs so good for FCA but there is more than one holdback on FCA. Let's not have to start this again. Everyone knows these kids.


Same amount as looneys, 91, and hawks....

Ryan's lack of coaching acumen is decades old. Ask someone in Greenwich sometime about how he ran the Cardinal program there. His mantra is to hire good coaches (and he's done a pretty good job at that) and leverage his alum BL and other MIAA contacts (which he does very well). Aside from that his lacrosse IQ is limited to setting up a credit card payment button on his camps and tournaments website pages. Crabs teams are still good, but look at what a joke VLC became after he took it over. It is incredible he gets any reverence around town when there are better programs like FCA and now Team 91 down the street where kids do get better instruction and development.

You can hate on the Crabs, but they have made VLC better. VLC has over 50 college commits from their 2015-2018 teams.

How long has Crabs own VLC? 2 years. These age kids are from when VLC was by itself. They are talking about how 2020 and below for VLC are avg to bad.

That sounds a lot like a PVI parent counting dozens of D1 commits. And they suck with impunity on the field. VLC had really good 2014 and 2015 teams which were mostly Madlax home grown kids who left to join VLC when it was formed. In reality that isn't a measure of quality anymore. College commit counts Are definitely a measure of how well a club team or a prep program markets kids, but the sport has reached a point where that is a diluted out thinking. Look what the practice of it has done to programs like UVA and Hopkins. UVA isn't relevant and Hopkins is barely relevant.

Hi crazy dad!! Once again, nut-job dad who's son was recruited is bashing UVA and Hopkins as irrelevant. When UVA hires a new coaching staff they still won't want your son, and Petro never will. Let it go, breathe deep and go to a baseball game because your lax knowledge is [lacrosse].

The point is none of the kids at UVA or JHU are early commits by todays standards. Some might of verbaled there Jr year but none of them where Freshman or ealy sophmore commits. So we are still waiting to see what early recruiting has done for these schools. If it has hurt or helped. And we also have to throw in that 99% of the kids who are picking a school in there 9th or 10th grade years could of waited tell there Jr years and still had a school to take them.

I think you mean crazy dad's son wasn't recruited. He's a fine example of a classic hater. Let's all chip in and get him a ticket to the Hopkins tourney game this weekend.

UVA not in the tournament and JHU doesn't belong in the tournament. How JHU got in and Rutgers didn't is beyond me. I'd say both of them are fairly irrelevant in 2016. Early recruiting is not panning out. Sorry - truth hurts. Can't live off your reputation forever.
