Last year there was talk about players bringing up a lawsuit against Syracuse because of injuries…As for ACL - WHEN DID WE NORMALIZE THIS INJURY AS PART OF THE GAME? There are 3 on my team only. Who’s looking at statistics on this? I don’t know how about knee bands? Unfortunately there are player’s susceptible is not acceptable….it should be addressed because injury prevention is not working

Following this performance, Tiemann continued her offensive efficiency by scoring six goals in No. 6 Maryville's historic victory over No. 12 University of Indianapolis, which secured the Saints' first regular-season Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) title. Notably, she broke an 11-11 tie and tallied what proved to be the game-winning goal with 6:37 left in the fourth quarter. Additionally, Tiemann hauled in nine draw controls against UIndy.

What lawsuit? Also, unfortunately there are players that are just susceptible to this kind of injury no matter what precautions they make take. What kind of changes are you suggesting? Also, is there a team that has al ot this season?


Last year there was talk about players bringing up a lawsuit against Syracuse because of injuries…As for ACL - WHEN DID WE NORMALIZE THIS INJURY AS PART OF THE GAME? There are 3 on my team only. Who’s looking at statistics on this? I don’t know how about knee bands? Unfortunately there are player’s susceptible is not acceptable….it should be addressed because injury prevention is not working
There is no 100% injury prevention unfortunately. It's about accurate training - and still there is no guarantee. I believe when KT came onto Cuse she had someone from the "outside" come in and figure out why all the injuries. Never heard of any lawsuit - how do you file a lawsuit in regards to that?

Love seeing UVA knock out UNC from ACC tournament - well deserved. Tired of hearing that UNC is a "young tem" - they are far from a "yound team" - UVA freshmen stepping up big time. Hope to see a win against Cuse.

Not so much about being a young team. They are riddled with injuries and missing some of their top talent due to injuries. Actually, next years young guns coming in will make the team a better team. Plus, girls should be back from injuries. Next year they will be a force to be reckoned with.

UNC should make the Tournament so none of it really matters.

UNC is 10 - 6 with a current RPI of 18

They have two Quality Wins: Virginia (7 RPI) and Florida (19 RPI)

Five of their six losses are to Top 10 RPI teams:

Northwestern 1, Syracuse 5, Virginia 7, Boston College 8, Notre Dame 9

Their other loss was to Top 20 RPI: James Madison 17

This is the first year that I can think of that there are more than 3 or 4 teams that have a legit chance to win it all.

Maybe 10 teams with a chance.

Is UNC one of them? Doubtful but we will see.

Have not seen any BC haters for a while. Are you referring to a particular post?

BC will be there in the end on coaching alone. Very few programs have capable coaches. BC is one of the few that has one, most other Top 10-15 programs do not have the coaches to get it done vs top competition in the tournament.

#1 seed NW, deservedly, has an easy path. #2 BC in the most competitive bracket. #3 Syracuse has a dark horse in SB; they play ‘Cuse tough and is my dark horse pick. #4 Maryland in the “anything goes” bracket.

How the heck did Dook get in??? They were horrible this year. What a joke. At least 3 others were clearly more deserving of the bid. Hope Loyola gives them a beating

I agree, I really thought it was going to be a good game. I also thought the JMU/MD was going to be good (not sure why since JMU isn't as good this year), but was hoping for a JMU win.
UNC/Florida was awesome to watch (to see the UNC player turn around and wack the Florida player with her stick was pathetic to see)! I id think that UVA was going to beat Florida though. Happy Michigan won it with seconds left. Just my 2 sense:)
