Not really. Just that Delaware is a feisty team. Not predicting a win, just looking at big upset possibilities, thought that one looked as good as any.

Stony Brook is obviously very good. It will be interesting to see if the tougher schedule will hurt or help them this year. I think in the past their weak schedule made their record look good and everyone took notice. In the end however (not last year) they went into the tournament with an over inflated confidence. Better to play tougher competition during the year even if you do not win every game. Their schedule was tougher last year but is was still favorable with home field advantage and plenty of rest before tough games. This year will be a little different but they are a better team. It would be really great if they can make it to the Final Four, the atmosphere at SBU for Championship weekend will be awesome.





Yes, will be fun to watch them lose on their own field!

I’ll go Lehigh over PSU. PSU struggles on
the back end, Lehigh had 18 last week and these teams had a very close game in the fall for whatever that means and any if they start to trail, Lions may tighten up.


Can't see it.

So I stated before games were played on the other thread that Penn St at #4 preseason was ranked too high. One guy got all up in arms ... Then they promptly go out and lose their opener. Funny. Where is "all up in arms guy" now??

I assume you've check the home team's website. Live stats, audio and livestream are listed on the schedule for that game. You might have to pay, and if you do, watch out for the small print. I found myself paying for one college's livestream monthly coverage when I thought I signed up for only one game.


Yes, I checked the USC website. Only a "live stat" option is listed. I was hoping someone knew of another resource. Thanks for the heads-up about the streaming cost, though. I'll definitely look out for that.


Come Thursday or Friday (I forget which), Inside Lacrosse will have a page listing all games this weekend and if there is free streaming available, they will have a link to it. Lots of games are not free. IME, the private colleges generally offer free viewing of livestreams and the state schools offer only a pay option. YMMV


Great... I appreciate the info. Is that a weekly thing?


Yes.

Agree with you. PSU had the easiest path to the final four by far, and got blown out in the eight team bracket. How do they then get #4 rank? Towson was probably ranked correctly and ranking should have been on par with PSU. Don’t see that as an upset at all, it was two teams on par and one norrowly beat the other. It was only considered an upset because PSU was over ranked to begin with.

It is really the end of season polls that matter. Cascade Media Poll has JMU ranked ahead of North Carolina. Actually, none of the polls really matter. Seeding is important and I do not think the committee cares about the polls.

Great to see some early season upsets. Will the trend continue or will the traditional powers be there at the end of the season?

Programs that have come on strong in recent years: Stony Brook, USC, Navy, Boston College

Programs that have fallen off a bit: Virginia, Notre Dame, Loyola, Hopkins

Is Division I Women's Lacrosse a zero-sum game? Is there enough talent out there for more teams to become competitive with the top programs?

Committee cares most about geography and minimizing travel costs.

The 3 second rule will have more of an impact than their schedule

Really big game tomorrow with 2 top 5 teams SC and SB. Should be a great game being played closer to SAn Diego. Think the cross country flight and this being their first game hurts SB. I predict USC 12-9 win
