Win Baby, Win . The cat is out of bag in MIAA. Not enough true athletes in MIAA lacrosse to compete against teams that have them. holdback advantage is nil now as all MIAA schools eventually went that route. Now the schools with out of state athletes will/are at top of heap ( CH for three straight Titles) . Several schools this year along with clubs are bringing in out of town Athletes to compete.

Like the coach always says...cant teach speed and athleticism.

Well both of these clubs brought in out of state athletes who were older, bigger, faster, stronger and they still lost big time this summer. To me that means sub par coaching.

At this age creating team culture and coaching (developing) your players is what creates a winning team.
Correct, Crabs 2023 is loaded with strong talented players but they have less than strong coaching. This team is scouted by other teams and they figure how to challenge them. When this happens Crabs coaching staff are not able to figure out a different game plan and the result is a loss. Good coaches are able to change their game plan, explain it clearly and the players execute the change. Carl's staff leaves it to the players to figure it out and that is not going to happen with any team and 16 year old players.

Agree, But MIAA coaches are not agreeing with us. If rumors are correct, next year will be interesting with these out of state players.

Agreed. Coach Mac on 2023 Crabs has won mainly due to holdbacks over the years. Not so sure about him and his staff when it comes to the X's & O's in a close game. Now he is trying to get an advantage by recruiting out of towners to the BL boarding school-even if it means displacing local talent that has been on the team for a while.

Those out of towners are just thirstier and I cant exactly put my finger on it, but they're so pretentious about lacrosse. They'll do anything to go division 1 for lacrosse. Gives me Aunt Becky vibes.

The UA event and rosters are incredibly watered down this year - King Crab and his National All Star Games took a toll on Corrigan's event.

A number of events impacted UA, but there is no debate that the NASG rosters were more loaded.

Actually I wasn't trying to hype the crabs, was just commenting on what I noticed from looking at the rosters. I did hear that king crab advised current crabs players to not participate in the UA games (meaning don't play in those or else) which is absurd.

Would be curious to hear from anyone who is at the games - is there a good turnout from recruiters?

King crab has been saying that for years now.

Loaded? What does that mean? Are you referring to the same old same old players that lose this event every year from Baltimore or LI teams? Kids that made this years team all earned a spot on rosters based off the actual tryout- Like always the college coaches are out in full force-

The Maryland team is missing most of the top players. Most MIAA teams were playing for their schools at a high school tournament.

In the next few years club will end after 8th grade . The high school tournaments are taking precedent. Much better for college coaches.

We can only Dream. Not going to happen. To many HS coaches make money off of clubs including most MIAA coaches.

Having watched both of the all star events there is/was plenty of talent at both. Some of the teams are stronger at UA and others were stronger at NAS. There are lots of coaches at UA as there was at NAS. The most coaches at tournaments this summer had to be Crab Feast and Naptown. It is another good weekend watching lots of talented players.
