We wouldn't bother with playoffs if it was just about who finished in first place at the end of the regular season.


Some on this site do not understand that. There is one lunatic who is obsessed with his own predictions.

Rankings should be based on actual results and a teams year to date body of work. Strength of schedule should be considered and most recent performance and trend should be given more consideration.



So says the Windbag who proclaims what rankings "should be." Computers are good for what you suggest, not humans. Too much bias, as indicated by your own statements on here. The only computer ranking that really matters is the final one, once the computers have all the necessary data. Your methodology has too few data points to be very accurate this early in the season. It is therefore a poor way to try to understand which teams are stronger than others. And therefore renders your ranking system as, at best, very flawed for now. I know you are afraid to stick your neck out and make any kind of forward-looking statement for fear of being wrong, but try. I'm not obsessed with my own predictions, I'm trying to get some discussion going with people who have actual knowledge of the teams and their strengths and weaknesses. If you have any knowledge, as you profess to have (see your statement that Hompe was not a key loss for Princeton) please engage in the conversation with your opinions. I would love to hear from informed individuals about their views of the teams. I welcome yours.

So in your opinion, which teams are better than you thought they would be this year? Which are underperforming your expectations? What have been the reasons for each? Do you think they will remain over/under achieving teams throughout the season? Which teams do you think, based on your deep knowledge, will be there in the end? Who will win it all?

Take the leap, it'll feel good. You are allowed to be wrong. It's ok. But put something out there that furthers the discussion, rather than just posing questions you don't answer and saying all you can rely on is what has already happened. It's not true. People have to make educated decisions about an uncertain future all the time.



Pretty entertaining so let's get this straight
Coaches poll - coaches have no clue
Inside lacrosse - media has no clue
Nike us lacrosse - also clueless
Just wondering besides yourself who really knows what happening? Time will tell sit back and enjoy the season


I do ... lol

List is pretty good. Acacia Walker, however, should not be on that list. She checks the first box, very good (to the point of unethical) recruiter. Poor coach. Assistants do all the real coaching there. Ask the girls. And before all the "your daughter got snubbed there" comments start flying, that is not the case. She had an offer from BC. Turned it down. Saw first hand what she was all about with some other recruits and said no thank you.




Agreed. She is also not well liked by many on that team. The girls like each other and the school but not big fans of Acacia especially the ones who are not on her very small list of favorites.

Was 10-1 Navy in first half. Not a two goal game 15-13 in 2nd half. Florida has such a tough time being consistent throughout the season and even within games.

Good comeback for Florida, but shouldn't be down to a team like Navy by 8.

My daughter happened to be on Boston College last year, a few things.
1. the assistant coaches do not do all of the work. They only had two coaches for the majority of the year last year
2. She is a tough coach yes, but she is genius and makes great game plans.
3. She develops talent, look at Kaileen Hart,Kate Weeks,Dempsey Arsenault,Sheila Rietano. They all grow have grown significantly throughout their times at BC.
4. She has taken over a team that was the worst in the ACC and has taken them to the top in 6 years.
5. How is she unethical?? She has a great product to sell.
While BC may not be for your daughter, you shouldn't speak for everyone else. Acacia has set her teams up to be top notch for the next few years and will continue to get top talent.

1. The assistant coaches have always set the game plans.
2. She is anything but a genius. That is just ridiculous.
3. The assistants develop the talent, she plays with her kids.
4. She recruits well, as stated above. She got 2 of the top 3 in the country (Rix and Stanwick) along with a BC legacy that fell in her lap with no scholarship (Mannelly). Those girls were why they went from worst to one of the better teams. That then allowed her to recruit better girls and it built from there.
5. She lies, leads kids on and then dumps them late in the process. Have seen it happen to several girls.
6. No one is speaking for everyone else. Boston College is a good school in a great city and the girls on the team are a nice bunch of kids.

Acacia Walker is not a great coach. I'm glad your daughter had a good experience there.

This blog is pathetic. The only good coach is Spallina, The only good player is Kylie Ohlmiller. Whenever someone gets praise, Li trolls have to put people down. Newsflash the SB program has accomplished nothing yet.

A few homer comments that need to be corrected 1)she is no genius 2)they are not the top of the ACC ,they have never won the ACC and do not look like they will anytime soon 3) as far as getting the top talent ; not really . What makes you feel she does ?

I do believe she developes players better than some . I also know she is a tough coach especially if you are not on her small list of favorites and many of the girls on the team are afraid of her at best .

Sorry that your experience was not more positive. At least your "very detailed" negative post was heartfelt and genuine. Obviously you have strong feelings based on actual experience.Some people would choose to keep the negative feelings to themselves but you choose to put them out there and thats okay. Others may have a different opinion and that is fine too. When I see detailed posts based on actual experience (even when negative) I have no problem with the it. If another poster has had a different experience that was positive they can post that as well.
Put the information out there and the rest of us can form our own opinion or we can choose to have no opinion at all. Much better to have a genuine post than the hit and run one line BS post put out there by a troll trying to start trouble.

My daughter was recruited and given a great offer by Acacia and our experience was very positive. I felt the coach was honest and my daughter loved her.

At least you are not a troll trying to stir the pot or bait the BC Faithful with... "BC Coach is terrible, they will never win."
