Before everyone gets on me about men coaches being aggressive, I do understand that there are women coaches that are aggressive also....UF, MD, NW, ect. Just thought about it since both teams last night had men coaches and both teams played with a similar style.


IMHO: The stronger teams play a more aggressive style of lacrosse due to their athleticism. I do not think it is due to having a male coach. The top programs recruit speed. With the exception of the prolific goal scorer coaches want athletes who can move. In this day and age everybody can throw and catch but you will not compete with the top programs if you do not have adequate team speed. The top programs play at a faster pace.


Agreed with the exception that after watching many years of top level lacrosse I am still not overly impressed with the stick skills ie catching and throwing. You have tewaaraton favorites who can barely use their weak hands etc.

Also, It looks like most of the stronger teams play more competitive schedules and they have to be more aggressive in order to keep pace. Simply put, the better teams play a faster, more intense, more aggressive game.

It is the way of the game... Go watch the Boy's / Men play.... very few players are proficient with both hands. Read.... Box Lacrosse influence ...

Perhaps you feel that way because you have to watch it over and over and over again. Like the energizer bunny, she keeps going and going and going. Good for her for getting out of Durham...

No I feel that way because it’s just douchie . Seems like Duke is heading in the right direction while BC is heading in the opposite direction, coincidence in regard to the transfer , I don’t think so . Yes good for her to leave a much better academic school with a lacrosse program on the rise to join a lesser academic school with a sinking ship of a program . Energizer bunny might want to win something before she celebrates every goal like an NCAA championship .

Duke moving in the right direction, I think not , most likely will not make the NCAA tournament this year , two blowout wins against team not even in the top 100 , they should be embarrassed . Do they challenge themselves at all or only play good teams because they have to play the ACC .

Duke is on the rise because they have quality wins this season against...Gardner-Webb and Wofford? Yes, this freshman class has talent, but beat someone first before you claim to be "on the rise". How about 5 top 20 wins this year, maybe even make the playoffs again?

Maryland garnered 15 first place votes, while the Tar Heels collected the other 10. Northwestern landed in the third spot, followed closely by Syracuse and Boston College, to round out the top five. The ACC landed seven teams in the top-25 rankings, the most of any conference, while the Big Ten had four schools listed and the Ivy League and Pac-12 each had three. Fans won’t have too long to wait before Maryland and North Carolina square off in a February 28 matchup in Chapel Hill.

Obviously it's early but.... Top 4 look about right.

Team Defense is what wins National Championships.... Northwestern needs to tighten up if they want to be in the conversation.

Has Maryland reloaded?

Is Syracuse really a Final Four Caliber team?

Looks like Boston College might struggle this year, ACC is not a very forgiving conference.

Michigan might be a little overrated.

Hofstra looks like they will be tough.

Denver looks like the Best of the West.

Stony Brook has challenged themselves early. SBU opens with Syracuse, they also have Florida and Princeton and a trip out to USC.

IMHO... North Carolina is the team to beat.

There are a lot of very good teams between 5 - 20 not sure if any can get to the Final Four.

Are there any teams not currently ranked in the Top 25 that can make some noise? Hofstra? Richmond? anyone else???


The Top 4 are no more...

Team Defense and strong goalie play is what wins National Championships... Just ask Maryland. 8 goals will get the headlines but Defense and 14 saves is what wins.

Syracuse ?? Final Four??? Not sure...

BC off from past few years.

Michigan was overrated.

Hofstra is solid.... SBU is Very Good ...

North Carolina is defiantly the team to beat. Best Defense in the country!

Dartmouth will challenge for an IVY Title.

Florida is obviously very good but will never win with 1 player taking 50% of the shots...

Notre Dame ?? Is this their Year?

The team with the best Team D will win the National Championship.

It is very early but it looks like we are going to have an interesting year. Not sure if anyone is going to beat UNC but it looks like there are a bunch of teams in the Top 15 - 20 who have a shot at making it to the Final Four.
