Did you even bother to look at ND roster or Loyola , stop with the whining .


Syracuse and UNC were noted as they are currently the 2 top teams and appear to be the most egregious in stacking their teams with transfers, Grad students. The same environment exists with other teams just didn’t feel the need to note every team. Bottom line is a number of teams have used the extra scholarship money to stack their teams. Would be nice to see the money these teams have dedicated to wlax so that a fair comparison can be made. ******Asterisk for this years Natty.

What is egregious? Is there a particular team that you feel has been hurt in some way by the current environment created by the NCAA due to the pandemic? Do you feel that there is some team out there that had a shot at the national championship but now they do not because other programs have more funding? Maybe it's just me but pretty sure the usual small group of schools would be competing for the National Championship anyway. What do you mean by.. "so that a fair comparison can be made"?

An advantage over who?
What is the purpose of your question?
Are you trying to somehow diminish the success a team has if in fact the team fits your cry?
Are you trying to make a point?
Why are you obsessed with the question?


Answer a question with 6 questions. So much for knowledgeable experts. Ok. Will spell it out for you. Team-A brings back numerous 5th year/ grad players and uses 20 scholarship dollars. Team-B stays at the 12.5 cap. Which team has advantage. Not too hard a question. Not a trick question. Sooooo.....answer the question Kreskin.

Actually, If the team that had the extra scholarship $$, the transfers and the 5th year players were a team that would not usually be considered in the Top 30 and the other team was North Carolina I would say North Carolina has the advantage.

I guess we are getting the answer clearly someone doesn’t like UNC or Ortega kid....NU crushed Rutgers today and Scane had 10 goals on 15 shots.... at least Louisville is ranked..let’s hear you [ChillLaxin] about her too??

Ahh. Back to the only a few schools have a chance at championship. Funny how you spew the same nonsense. Cmon.... I know you want to say SBU stinks. I understand it takes time for information to get through the thick cranium. And who mentioned fair. To deny that a school is able to offer more scholarship money than another iOS not an advantage is frankly uninformed. Now back to usual drivel..... oh no PSU lost..... they didn’t have a chance anyway.

It’s not fair, it’s not fair, they have more scholarships, they have 5th players and graduate students. It’s not fair, it’s just not fair. They have an advantage, we could compete if it were fair, if only it were fair....

Stacking their teams with transfers tells us all I need to know , please tell us the number of transfers that are playing at UNC this year ,also at Cuse . You really are uneducated in the facts of women’s lax .The only asterisk has to be on any of your children’s birth certificates in the father column as no way any actual women’s admits that tragedy .

When you don’t have an educated argument one must spew nonsense about birth certificates. Sorry but you seem to posses a lower IQ. Read the thread. Increased scholarship money has allowed certain programs to retain 5th year students, grad students and recruit transfers. Geez... guess you failed reading comprehension. To reject the idea that certain schools gained an advantage by the scholarship rule change is putting your head in the sand. But with full slate of games we can go back to usual drivel.

Cursory quick look at a few rosters and the number of 5th year, Grad students, transfers etc

Syracuse-10, ranked #2
UNC-5, ranked #1
ND-7, ranked #4
NU-3, ranked #3
SBU-4, ranked #6

Now check your kids birth certificate. I believe genetically they are the milk mans kids.

Do you believe that in a normal year when the NCAA limit of 12 scholarships is enforced that it is a level playing field? Do you believe that all is equal? Do you not understand that there are programs that always have an advantage over their competitors? What team do you believe is being negatively affected by this reality?

After yesterday they certainly need to drop but who do you put ahead of them? I believe Duke plays Virginia again Sunday and Penn State Plays Michigan again on Sunday as well. We will see... Michigan goalie was outstanding.

Cursory quick look at last years Final Ranking... without the current situation of 5th year, Grad students, transfers etc

1 - North Carolina

2 - Notre Dame

3 - Loyola

4 - Syracuse

5 - Stony Brook

6 - Northwestern

Not a lot has changed.... Stop the whining .

Actually, allowing additional eligibility due to COVID is a bad decision. Yes it may be great for the grad students etc, but the effect on so many other players including the current freshman and high school players of recruiting age is far more damaging and impactful than the disappointment players who lost a year may have felt. Far more players are adversely impacted than those who would have lost a year.
Using the argument FOR added eligibility, shouldn’t the current freshman also get an added year? Since their ability to play may be taken away due to grads playing ahead of them?

Good decision or bad decision the decision was made and everyone has to play by the same rules. Why is the situation more impactful on current freshmen and High Scholl Players?

No, the current freshmen should not receive an added year. There are always 5th year players and transfers, not playing as a freshmen because you did not earn the playing time over another player should not enable you to have an added year simply because you didn't earn playing time. There are many freshmen who are earning playing time. Life is not fair, nothing is handed to most people it is earned. It is a difficult situation for everyone, do the best you can, where you are with wat you have. Many players (freshmen, sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, Transfers, 5th yr) do not see the field.

The following statement from above blows me away but I guess I shouldn't be surprised:

** "Since their ability to play may be taken away due to grads playing ahead of them?"**

Players / people in general are owed nothing except the chance to compete. Nothing is being taken away from freshmen or any other player for that matter. Players have to earn "playing time" it doesn't matter what year the player is or it they are a transfer.
