Where is the big 10 guy. Cmon man. Get in on this. Then you two can provide some entertainment for us. Although it’s all kinda bs as the tourney starts in few weeks.

I would say that this year is no different than other years, the top 2 - 3 Teams in the ACC are excellent, after that there are a bunch of teams that are as competitive as ND, Duke and UVA. Northwestern, Maryland, Rutgers, Hopkins... Florida, Stony Brook, Loyola, Drexel, Stanford etc... If the Ivy’s were playing I would throw in Princeton and Penn as well.

The question was more competitive but I do agree many of those teams would be as competitive . I think Rutgers and Hopkins are a step below and you did not give NW enough credit as they would have been in the mix to win the ACC.

IMHO I do not see NW being in the mix to win ACC. UNC, Syracuse and BC have prolific offenses adn NW has a spotty defense to say the least. I watched a decent Rutgers team put 14 on the board with 20+ turnovers. Those three ACC teams could put 20+ on the scoreboard against NW. NW has a prolific offense as well, however they have not faced defenses like the three ACC teams. I think that is the difference.

UMASS Every team in the ACC except Va Tech played a more competitive game against their only common opponent BC and they have not beaten any ranked team seems like a stretch to say they are more competitive than any ACC tournament.
Denver They again have not beaten any ranked team and lost to Colorado who lost to Louisville so so again saying they would be more competitive in the ACC than any ACC team seems to be a stretch
Drexel They lost to the only currently ranked team they played by 5 , that team, Loyola, lost to the only ACC team they played in a completely non competitive game ,while they do have some impressive quality wins not sure that puts them as being more competitive than UVA, ND ,Duke .
Florida This is probably the best resume of the group as they beat Louisville, and played competitive against UNC . The loss to Jacksonville and the fact that their only ranked win is over #20 Louisville seems to indicate that at best they would be equally competitive and that's being generous
In the end they are all good teams but the ACC is just very good this year

Maybe they could just call it the NCAACC tournament.

Comparative scores are never a strong benchmark for comparing teams. Trying to use Top 20 wins or a teams record this year is basically useless. The only true indication of how teams stack up is head to head competition, relative strength of schedule and overall body of work. This year it is all speculation due to the fact that there has been very little out of conference competition between the top programs. In recent years, only North Carolina and Boston College have proven themselves to be a cut above, Syracuse, Virginia, Notre Dam are always Top 20, Duke has been a notch below for several years and Va Tech and Louisville are competitive but certainly have never consistently been Top 20. The Reality is that when you look at the DI field there are always a number of teams that are just as competitive as the bottom 5 or 6 ACC teams. There are also always some that are more competitive than ACC Teams. The ACC does have an advantage this year because many other programs will go into the tournament without being battle tested. Teams like Stony Brook, Florida, JMU, Loyola etc... usually play much tougher schedules than they did this year. Is the ACC the Strongest conference? Yes, but on any given year there between 15 - 20 Teams that are as competitive in the ACC as the bottom 5 or 6.

Complete drivel. You don't want to use comparative scores to predict how competitive a team would be nor do you want to use how teams did against top 20 teams instead you want to use strength of schedule which has nothing to do with how good a team is. Talking about how teams have done 3 years ago and more has nothing to do with a current team just look at Drexel. To say a "number of teams that are just as competitive"...as Syracuse , ND , etc is just not looking at current results and teams. Head to head results are generally the best indicator so look at last years as many of the teams have essentially the same players back. The consensus best non ACC team this year seems to be NW, how did they do while playing ACC teams last year. Included in your bottom 6 ACC teams are Cuse, UVA, ND,Duke who went a combined 21-4 out of conference with 2 wins over NW and 1 over MD,Stanford, Princeton, and Navy to name a few.This year those same teams are 17-0 out of conference with wins over JMU,SBU,Loyola,Richmond . To say there are 15-20 teams that are as competitive as these ACC teams is just nonsense.

We get it, you believe all ACC teams would dominate the rest of Division I Women’s Lacrosse teams. That is your opinion, it is not a fact and it has never actually been a reality, who knows maybe this year but in the end you are simply stating your opinion. The reality of actual results for many years shows that on most years there are 2 Final Four Caliber Teams from The ACC. Most on here would agree that after the Top 4 there are probably 15 or so teams that are competitive with each other most years Syracuse, Virginia, Notre Dame are in that group. Duke in recent years has been at the bottom of that group.. and Va Tech and Louisville most years are on the outside looking in at that group of teams. Obviously you can have your opinion but the reality of what has actually happened tells a different story. Maybe in this crazy Covid season things will be different.

Please quote where it says you cannot use a prior year's results. Its actually fairly clear when they say "essentially the same players back " that they believe last years results are indicative of this years success. Reading comprehension Geez. Also note that there are multiple people responding.

Teams like Stony Brook, Florida, JMU, Loyola etc... usually play much tougher schedules than they did this year. Is the ACC the Strongest conference? Yes, but on any given year there between 15 - 20 Teams that are as competitive in the ACC as the bottom 5 or 6.

Complete drivel. You don't want to use comparative scores to predict how competitive a team would be nor do you want to use how teams did against top 20 teams instead you want to use strength of schedule which has nothing to do with how good a team is. Talking about how teams have done 3 years ago and more has nothing to do with a current team just look at Drexel. To say a "number of teams that are just as competitive"...as Syracuse , ND , etc is just not looking at current results and teams. Head to head results are generally the best indicator so look at last years as many of the teams have essentially the same players back. The consensus best non ACC team this year seems to be NW, how did they do while playing ACC teams last year. Included in your bottom 6 ACC teams are Cuse, UVA, ND,Duke who went a combined 21-4 out of conference with 2 wins over NW and 1 over MD,Stanford, Princeton, and Navy to name a few.This year those same teams are 17-0 out of conference with wins over JMU,SBU,Loyola,Richmond . To say there are 15-20 teams that are as competitive as these ACC teams is just nonsense.

We get it, you believe all ACC teams would dominate the rest of Division I Women’s Lacrosse teams. That is your opinion, it is not a fact and it has never actually been a reality, who knows maybe this year but in the end you are simply stating your opinion. The reality of actual results for many years shows that on most years there are 2 Final Four Caliber Teams from The ACC. Most on here would agree that after the Top 4 there are probably 15 or so teams that are competitive with each other most years Syracuse, Virginia, Notre Dame are in that group. Duke in recent years has been at the bottom of that group.. and Va Tech and Louisville most years are on the outside looking in at that group of teams. Obviously you can have your opinion but the reality of what has actually happened tells a different story. Maybe in this crazy Covid season things will be different.
Actually the only facts are the records of those teams from the ACC who went 38-4 out of conference the past two seasons and that does not include UNC or BC .They have beaten essentially every other top ranked team so yes that seems dominant .Your final four argument is a joke as many of the ACC teams have knocked each other out of the NCAA tournament prior to the final four. You will see the same happen this year as the NCAA does not try to space out teams from the same conference.

Have to chime in here as you appear to be another person who just pops off without regard for reality. Below are some facts regarding who ACC teams lose to in the NCAA Tournament:

2016:

Hopkins over UVA
Stony Brook over BC
Northwestern over Louisville
Maryland over Syracuse

2017:

Cornell over ND
JMU over Louisville
Maryland over BC

2018:

Princeton over Syracuse
JMU over UVA
JMU over UNC
JMU over BC

2019:

Northwestern over ND
Northwestern over Syracuse
Maryland over BC

14 times in 4 years ACC Teams were knocked out of The Tournament by Non-ACC Teams

In Contrast, ACC teams knocked each other off only 7 Times.

2016:

UNC over Duke
UNC over ND

2017

BC over Syracuse
UNC over UVA

2018

UNC over Va Tech

2019

UNC over UVA
BC over UNC

You just pop off with nonsense and baseless opinion but feel free to continue to bloviate.
