Can anyone give me some assistance on finding a live stream anywhere for USC/SBU this Friday? Great game to start the season.

I assume you've check the home team's website. Live stats, audio and livestream are listed on the schedule for that game. You might have to pay, and if you do, watch out for the small print. I found myself paying for one college's livestream monthly coverage when I thought I signed up for only one game.

Yes, I checked the USC website. Only a "live stat" option is listed. I was hoping someone knew of another resource. Thanks for the heads-up about the streaming cost, though. I'll definitely look out for that.

Maybe ESPN 3? There were a lot of games covered this past weekend. We were able to watch on the computer.

Come Thursday or Friday (I forget which), Inside Lacrosse will have a page listing all games this weekend and if there is free streaming available, they will have a link to it. Lots of games are not free. IME, the private colleges generally offer free viewing of livestreams and the state schools offer only a pay option. YMMV

Not sure if there are others missing...

I’ll go Lehigh over PSU. PSU struggles on the back end, Lehigh had 18 last week and these teams had a very close game in the fall for whatever that means and any if they start to trail, Lions may tighten up.

Stony Brook is obviously very good. It will be interesting to see if the tougher schedule will hurt or help them this year. I think in the past their weak schedule made their record look good and everyone took notice. In the end however (not last year) they went into the tournament with an over inflated confidence. Better to play tougher competition during the year even if you do not win every game. Their schedule was tougher last year but is was still favorable with home field advantage and plenty of rest before tough games. This year will be a little different but they are a better team. It would be really great if they can make it to the Final Four, the atmosphere at SBU for Championship weekend will be awesome.

Not really. Just that Delaware is a feisty team. Not predicting a win, just looking at big upset possibilities, thought that one looked as good as any.

So I stated before games were played on the other thread that Penn St at #4 preseason was ranked too high. One guy got all up in arms ... Then they promptly go out and lose their opener. Funny. Where is "all up in arms guy" now??

Agree with you. PSU had the easiest path to the final four by far, and got blown out in the eight team bracket. How do they then get #4 rank? Towson was probably ranked correctly and ranking should have been on par with PSU. Don’t see that as an upset at all, it was two teams on par and one norrowly beat the other. It was only considered an upset because PSU was over ranked to begin with.

It is really the end of season polls that matter. Cascade Media Poll has JMU ranked ahead of North Carolina. Actually, none of the polls really matter. Seeding is important and I do not think the committee cares about the polls.

Re: 2018 Women's DI, II & III College Lacrosse Season - 02/15/18 01:33 PM

Great to see some early season upsets. Will the trend continue or will the traditional powers be there at the end of the season?

Programs that have come on strong in recent years: Stony Brook, USC, Navy, Boston College

Programs that have fallen off a bit: Virginia, Notre Dame, Loyola, Hopkins

Is Division I Women's Lacrosse a zero-sum game? Is there enough talent out there for more teams to become competitive with the top programs?

Committee cares most about geography and minimizing travel costs.

Name the top schools for combination of academics and a realistic chance of playing in a final 4 in the next few years.

My list includes in order of most likely to make final 4 with great (top 20) academics:

Northwestern
Princeton
Penn
Duke?

Are those the 4 best academic schools with at least a chance of sniffing a final 4?

Navy made it last year. I do not know much about them other than they have a great coach and they have proven they can get to championship weekend.

Northwestern would be my top pic.

Toss up between Penn and Princeton.

Duke fell off a bit last year not sure how they will be this year.

Cant see Stanford, Hopkins, or Vanderbilt,

No Ivy other than Penn or Princeton.

Notre Dame and Georgetown are unlikely but maybe Notre Dame will surprise everyone you never know.

I will take SB even with the odds stacked in USC favor in terms of a long flight, and 10 pm eastern time start. I think will be low scoring affair but SB offense is considerably better than USC.

Agreed. I'd put Duke ahead of the Ivies though. Down year last year, but over next few years could have a shot. Always recruit pretty well. ND looks mediocre now but maybe in a few years. Doubt it. Stanford will be lucky to be in top 25, never mind final 4. Same with Georgetown.

Yes, those are the top 20 academic schools with the best chance to make the Final Four. But I think all of the schools that have a legitimate shot are pretty darn good academic schools as well.

USC, North Carolina, BC, Florida, Penn State, Maryland, Syracuse.

Stony Brook has improved both academics and athletics in recent years. That is the beauty of this sport. There are so many excellent schools providing opportunities for our daughters.

Okay. What programs are on the rise? What programs have the best chance to constantly be a Top 20 program? What programs are trending down?

Proof positive that there is no shortage of A$@ H@&$€ on this site. Some of you freaks attack everything that is posted. Not only do you morons attack the best players, programs and schools out of jealousy and hate. You also attack and poke fun at any player , program or school that you believe is somehow below your daughter, her school or her program. What a bunch of sick lunatics you are. It must be very difficult for some of you to make it through the day.

No science here at all. Just someone who watches a lot of games. I think Elon will trend down. Had a good run last year but lost a star goalie who kept them in many games. ODU will trend down as well. Lost some strong seniors. Fairfield might be up a little, Marquette should be up also as last year they dipped and early goalie choice last year cost them some games. High Point looks to be strong again and may break top 20. They are a fast aggressive tea. UMass always surprises me. When I see them play, they never look great but always seem to be ranked high. Villanova should be a little better but those girls still hate their coach and that will continue to cause morale problems. As for Gardner -Webb...they can only go up!

No matter how this game finishes up and no matter how good or not USC actually ends up being this year, it is safe to say the impact of the return of a healthy Courtney Murphy was way underestimated.

Announcers for the USC /, SBU game were terrible.

USC very poorly coached.

Stony Brook well coached.

Transition for stony Brook was excellent.

SBU offense very unselfish. Ball movement, spacing, timing and approach all very good and well coordinated and executed (Coaching).

USC offense stagnant and just flat out bad.

SBU will have trouble with s well coached team that can control the Draw.

Kennedy is s difference maker for SBU.

Final Four should be fun.

What was with the announcers referring to certain players as "the transfers" and calling other players by their first name? very strange. Did the announcers resent the "transfer" players? Who were the announcers? Did they play at USC? USC coaching is 10 years behind. The outcome of this game was mostly coaching although SBU did appear to have more depth as well.

USC 8 yellow cards. Kerrigan Miller out half way thru first half. And still only 14-10. SBU is good, but if they don't solve the draw, they are going nowhere. USC is a top 15-20 team, not a top 10. Did not see anything tonight that changed my opinion of SBU. They are a very good offensive team, although they get a little too hot doggy and started turning the ball over w dumb btb passes etc. They are a good defensive team scheme wise, but individually aren't all that impressive and did nothing on the ride. Goalie is average. They may lose in the round of 8 again. I know that's not what all u homers think, but thems the facts. With 8 (or was it 9) man up possessions and the other teams best player out for 3/4s of the game, the score should be 17-7. It will be interesting to see how they do at Northwestern if Shelby Fredericks is healthy and back on the field.

They have an extremely mediocre non-conference schedule for the "#2" team in the country. And their conference teams are really bad. They get hurt come tournament time by not playing better competition. Not really their fault, but is what it is. No UNC, Maryland, Syracuse, Florida (this yr) etc. They could go undefeated and you still won't know really what they have until later in the NCAAs.

Re: 2018 Women's DI, II & III College Lacrosse Season - 02/17/18 11:17 AM

SB was very fast versus SC. I agree many cards can influence game but SB was much better team.

SB transition from Defense to offense was great. Also, which I could never figure out in women’s game why more teams don’t do it, SB destroyed SC from attacking from behind the cage. SB ball movement was fast. A zone can’t keep up with it. Against zone the key is ball movement.

If you have good attackers, bring it behind and cut. Simple draw and dump. Hard to cover a cutter in girls game based on rules, and hard to stop someone one on one without help. So if you have no help defense because defender is covering cutter it opens up 1v1 with defender. Two options tough to stop. Boys game does it all day long. Teams better prep for SB behind goal attack as not many teams do this, or have attackers that can do it in college game now. All I see is attacking from up top.

Don't disagree w any of that. But tell me then, why with USCs best player out with 2 cards early and USC w 8 cards overall (leading to at least 4 maybe 5 goals) was the score only 14-10? I think the answer is mainly that SB has a major problem on the draw. In my opinion, they just played a team that should not be ranked in the top 10 and did not look as dominant as they should have if they want to win a national championship. Maryland wins that game by 10.

Announcers were terrible
I think USC is well coached just SB defense is that good
SB offense executed well in first half
Both teams have some major issues ,SB will not beat a top team if the draw is not better, difficult to win without a top goalie especially if there is no back up goalie. USC is simply just not that talented and has no depth. Miller would have helped but not a difference maker on offense which is where they needed the help in this game.Both teams play a weak schedule ,USC has a very weak schedule overall so neither are prepared for back to back big games come the tournament.

Haters will hate. SBU goes cross country and smacks around USC in a game that everyone predicted USC would win. But..........You somehow want to point out that their non-conf schedule isn't good enough. Non-conf schedules are made sometimes years in advance so stop with the schedule stuff. SBU was better in almost every phase of the game. Its early in season lets see how it plays out.

There aren't a ton of good coaches out there. Add USC to the list. Florida could have 2 national championships if someone like Spalina was their coach.

Same thing in club ball. Teams with the best athletes win in spite of their coaches

Agree. Will also add you should be attacking from all over the field (behind, wing, corners, top etc...). spacing, off ball movement and timing must be coordinated in order for offense to be effective against good team defense. One on one dodging with off ball players getting in the way will not work. Standing still trying to feed is also ineffective and will result in unforced turnovers.

Stony Brook clearly the better coached team.

Well, some facts and some opinions. SBU goalie had 10 saves and 50% save percentage, that is above average, you can compare to last years top goalies. SBU played against one of the best goalies in the country, they score more against a weaker goalie. First game of the year with cross continent travel, it was a great result. Agreed on draw control as a first game issue and can do without the hot dog stuff as well. How do you define going nowhere, do they have to win a title in your definition of somewhere?

Many of those USC shots were not good. Inflated the save percentage. It’s really just the eyeball test. She’s a decent/good goalie, not great. For the #2 team in the country, there is only one result that matters, a National championship. I don’t see them winning it. They are good. Very good. But I think their flaws will be exposed in the NCAAs like they have been each year so far.

I’ll go Lehigh over PSU. PSU struggles on
the back end, Lehigh had 18 last week and these teams had a very close game in the fall for whatever that means and any if they start to trail, Lions may tighten up.


Can't see it.

PSU 14 Lehigh 13 Ref calls off tying goal w 16 seconds to for follow through which wasn’t even. Horrible! Theft

Completely agree with the hotdog comments!
Worst part of it is you see more and more of this unnecessary BTB crap in the younger girls game. We have girls on club and HS teams who can’t put up a normal high percentage shot up anymore. Every shot has to be a ridiculous BTB, under hand, between the legs circus show. There is a Spallina/SBU influence on many of the impressionable LI girls, and it is very hard to watch these hotdogs, just play the game.

Check that. Fredericks out. Duke freshman attacker is outstanding.

Both teams look fast and athletic. Duke underrated.

Duke looks better but early.

Stony Brook looked strong defensively and on attack. I believe the midfield will ultimately cost them against top teams (USC ranked way too high). This is the year for them to make some noise but I think they are a bit short.

So USC is ranked 5. But they were handled and outplayed everywhere except the draw circle. Can't pick and choose I personally have a daughter that is on a team in the top 10 (not Stoney Brook) saw them play Friday and I think they are better than last year. I will say this in my opinion 4 to 5 teams can win it this year and SB is one of them. Also watched MD and FL neither team plays any type of defense but are offensively gifted.

North outstanding. Fredericks in and that game goes to NU. Both those teams are ranked too low. That was a game between two top 10 teams, not 11 and 19. That's why these preseason polls r so bad. Now NU will drop from where there are despite being a top 10 team. Duke will move up, but not nearly as high as they should.

Penn State should be ranked below Duke and NU for example. Will it happen, doubt it.

Agree. Both teams looked very good. love the crisp passing and both teams are athletic and fast.

From what I have seen YTD both Northwestern and Duke are Top 10.

The season is early but I think we have a deeper field than in the past.

Too early to pick Top 10 but the 10 listed should certainly be considered. Duke and Northwestern have to be considered as well. Virginia and Penn maybe. I don't think Towson or Penn State are Top 10 at this point. Virginia appears to be improved from last year. Can ND get over the hump. Is there anyone else? Only time will tell.

Always tough early in the season! Usc one good result beating VT and then trailed wire to wire to SB at one point 7 down will learn more this week about them, Notre Dame and NW as they play each other. Also think Stanford bounces back and gives SB all they can handle today

Looks like we are starting to see a little parity (at least with the Top 10 teams). In years past I think the top 4-6 teams were consideribly stronger than the next 5 or 6 teams and then there was another drop off. It is great to see some of the top programs playing each other so early. All of the rankings are really meaningless but fun to see who falls where. I think there will be some very good teams that do not make the final 8 teams this year.

Love the fact that teams are scheduling more meaningful games. I believe Northwestern got in with a 10-9 record last year. I'm not arguing for Northwestern but love when teams play tough games. Same in college football is an undefeated UCF the same as a 1 or 2 loss Georgia, Ohio State, Alabama, Penn State etc

Stony brook has played a UCF type schedule in the past but its getting tougher every year. The problem with Lacrosse is that with slightly more competitive teams picking 8 is really tough once get past the top 4

Please, no offense to liberty but it was 15-1 at the half so lets not get too excited. Watched the second half and saw some of those Freshmen playing the old high school game , head down run to goal. Will also say I get its college but do you need the best player on the field doing the same thing even after she has scored 5 goals and the team is up by 17, the Tewaaraton committee hopefully realizes there is a difference doing it because your team needs you to and doing it at the expense of making your team better.

Don't think there is a clear top 4 right now.

Maryland
Stony Brook
Boston College
Florida
Syracuse
JMU
Navy
Duke
Northwestern
Princeton
North Carolina
USC
Virginia
Penn
Notre Dame

are all pretty strong. After that not sure maybe Towson, Penn State ?

Stanford is not a top 25 team. Last year they had an RPI of 35. In the immortal words of Bill Parcells, "You are what your record says you are." For Stanford, that's pretty darn mediocre.

There are more than four teams that can compete for a championship this year. By the end of the season we will see 10 0r 12 of the teams listed prove that they can compete with the best. Seeding will be crucial to who make the Final Four, This year, getting to the Final Eight is going to be tough.

Nobody was talking about the academics. Way to change the argument. "Also think Stanford bounces back and gives SB all they can handle today." That was the quote. Stanford is not only not in the same class as SB lacrosse wise, they are two to three classes below. They look like a mid-tier D1 team in this game. They can barely throw and catch. They r turning it over constantly. This isn't even a game.

That is very true, ball constantly on the ground for "the Cardinal". But I have to add this..... a few months ago there was a prolonged argument about coaches taking taller players over better lax IQ, this game proves why you take the IQ over size. The Stanford girls are much bigger, but it really doesn't matter because they can't catch , and continually throw bad passes. Also, in my opinion, Stanford being a good school for the west coast, not near an Ivy no matter how much they want to be, also not as good as Duke , the Hop, B.C. etc.... Not to mention S.B. is a very good teaching hospital. By the way I hate Spallina.7w9ztk

I will add that SB is having trouble on the draw again. Draws are relatively even in this game. In a game where SB is clearly the better team, just like against USC, they are not doing as well on the draw. This is going to bite them if they can't fix it come tournament time. Stanford will not make NCAAs. Not even close.

Put the bottle down. Was never a discussion about taking taller players over better lax IQ, which by the way is not mutually exclusive .To even compare BC and Stanford academically let alone say BC is better tells me you are clueless about Stanford .Glad to see you included the image verification in your post, again don’t drink and post it never works out.

Stony Brook women's lax is such a great story. Spallina has that team as prepared as any team ever. Like him or not, he wins at every level, as a player, pro coach, club coach, HS, d2, and now this. It's the only LI team that can win a division 1 title! I have zero ties to any of this, except being a lax fan and I am rooting for that team to win it all.

Kind of like how the Stonybrook girls can barely crack a 1100 on their SAT? At least the the SB girls are good at saying “yes boss”, that will come in handy later in life

Ahhh. The guy that was talking big stuff about Stanford lax, only to realize they stink. Funny. And this guys brilliant Stanford daughter is taking Science, Technology and the World. You know, the major that the football guys also take. Such a funny thing that this guy thinks the Stanford lax players have anything close to the actual qualifications to get into the school. Very funny. Which one of the ball droppers was ur kid? What a combination: not so smart, a bad lacrosse player, and an inflated ego. Funny, but also sad.

Great coach that always lives on the edge with the in game rules. If he was at Florida he would have 2 National Titles. Amazing that he is doing it with a team that is 95% from LI. The 3 years before he got there they won 3 or 4 games per year and in his 1st year with some D2 transfer players he jumped to 14 wins. All this at a lousy college campus but good lacrosse facilities

"Ahhh. The guy that was talking big stuff about Stanford lax, only to realize they stink. Funny. And this guys brilliant Stanford daughter is taking Science, Technology and the World. You know, the major that the football guys also take. Such a funny thing that this guy thinks the Stanford lax players have anything close to the actual qualifications to get into the school. Very funny. Which one of the ball droppers was ur kid? What a combination: not so smart, a bad lacrosse player, and an inflated ego. Funny, but also sad."

I do not have a kid that is at, or has gone to Stanford but if you are going after the academics of the athletes at that school or the academics in general you are just being ignorant. My daughter visited many schools, Stanford being one of them, and it was the only school that made it very clear you are a student first and athlete second. While I think their lacrosse and USC lacrosse are consistently ranked a little higher than they deserve probably to try and grow the sport and make it seem as if its just not an east coast game you cannot be serious going after their academics. Stanford consistently is one of the if not the most difficult school to get into with an acceptance rate of around 5%.

If you are using lacrosse for anything other than to gain admission to a top ten, you’re a fool. Nobody cares about lacrosse except the parents. My daughter catches and throws, and scores just fine. Having the choice between Maryland and a top 10, only an stunad would choose Maryland. You have to look at the long term benefit. If you gain admission to a top 10, you’ve already won the National Championship. Now if you’re second tier academically, and are a great lax player, then a Maryland or Stonybrook would be the way to go.

But everyone on LI wants to go away to school and very few from other parts of the country want to come. Who has it easier UNC, Maryland, Penn State, Florida etc.... They get kids wanting to play there from all 50 states

LI kids would rather go to CT to play average lacrosse at Fairfield, Sacred Heart or Quinnipiac then stay home

Keep changing the subject. Just admit you were wrong about Stanford lacrosse. You have said multiple times that their LACROSSE team was an outside contender for the final four, that they were going to give SB a run for their money etc. You were wrong. They are not a very good D1 lacrosse team. It's ok, you can admit you were wrong.

They are a good academic school. Although the undergraduate education is a bit overrated unless you are there for a few specialized areas that most lacrosse players are not taking as majors. Same is true actually about most undergraduate programs. They are much harder to get into than they are once you are there. It's the graduate programs that are the real deal. And for that, Stanford has a much deserved excellent reputation.

Lax ... eh. Undergrad education, meh.

You are all a bunch of morons.To say someone is an stunad because they picked MD over a top 10 school is short sighted at best and ignorant at worst. There are many things that go into picking a school and just because US News has a school ranked top 10 does not make it the right choice. Say what you want but a premed 4.0 Zoe Stuckenberg with multiple national championships is going to be just fine compared to your struggling communications daughter at Yale. There are a lot of great schools out there and just because you went to a top 10 school is no guarantee of anything.

First its a different poster, I think Stanford lax has been overrated as I stated. They are a 25-40 program much like Stony Brook was not too long ago. As far as their undergraduate programs you are underestimating just how good the education is .

Of course the good ones. Only a couple of players want to stay at SB and usually because they can’t afford the other schools and the travel back and forth. Please don’t tell me about scholarships for lax either. My daughter plays at a mid major and has friends at majors. Not helpful for the SB girls coming out of HS.

Here's a question for all you Stanford lovers, If Stanford is so much better than every other school, and you and your daughters are so much smarter than the rest of us, why do you care what we think? According to you, you and your daughters are living the dream, at the best school in the world, having a kid so much smarter than the rest of us, probably better marriages then the rest of us, why do you care? So your daughters team got crushed by a bunch of 3rd rate neanderthals and they can barley throw or catch. I mean really, look at those decision making skills they posses, flawless almost 5 out of a hundred times. Who cares they don't have enough dexterity to complete a pass to a girl 5 yards away without throwing it out of bounds, there at Stanford, a bastion of liberal idealism where every loser is really a winner because some magazine says so, and there is no way you spent all that money so your daughter will become my barista like so many other top 10 school grads. You just keep telling yourself that there is no way any of our daughters will be nearly as successful as your little princess because your princess has a better name on the top of a piece of paper and that makes her better. nme7vy (I put that in so you can continue to feel superior to me, you obviously need that)

Saw Hofstra today v Wagner and live this fall. Yikes. Not very good. Could be better, but obviously coaches doing them no favors. Please don’t mention them competing with SB or even well with mid majors. Should beat Wagner by more than 10 and won by 5 unimpressively.

According to you, you and your daughters are living the dream, at the best school in the world, having a kid so much smarter than the rest of us, probably better marriages then the rest of us, why do you care? So your daughters team got crushed by a bunch of 3rd rate neanderthals and they can barley throw or catch. I mean really, look at those decision making skills they posses, flawless almost 5 out of a hundred times. Who cares they don't have enough dexterity to complete a pass to a girl 5 yards away without throwing it out of bounds, there at Stanford, a bastion of liberal idealism where every loser is really a winner because some magazine says so, and there is no way you spent all that money so your daughter will become my barista like so many other top 10 school grads. You just keep telling yourself that there is no way any of our daughters will be nearly as successful as your little princess because your princess has a better name on the top of a piece of paper and that makes her better. nme7vy (I put that in so you can continue to feel superior to me, you obviously need that)

Add Insanity to the list of negative self destructive emotions, behavior, thoughts or mental state that many of you display on this site. The bitterness, jealousy, hate and insanity that comes through would be funny if it were not so sad. I'm guessing that it is the same lunatics that try to tear down Stanford then go after Hofstra all in some sick effort to elevate a school like Stony Brook. Honestly, what is wrong with you people? Many of you simply can not let your daughters abilities speak for it self. Be happy for your daughter wherever she is athletically and academically. Do any of you realize how crazy you sound?

"No need to go to Stanford, an Ivy or Duke. The education is just as good at XYZ State". "Your kid plays at Hofstra? They aren't even Top 30, what a waste of time". "She is going where, UNC? She will never see the field". "How did they pick those girls for UA? My daughter is way better, it must be political". "Those IL Rankings are a joke. My daughter is just as deserving". "Lacrosse is a dead end sport, what did she get a 5K scholarship? We went DIII because academics are more important to us". "ND stinks". "Northwestern is terrible". "Florida will never win". "I told you they were overrated, see they lost, they stink".

Look at reality. The top schools are the top schools for a reason, whether it be academically or athletically. Same can be said for the student athletes and all of your bashing will not change reality.

While it is entirely possible, let's not forget he just signed a new contract with SB, and the AD loves him which means he gets carte blanche to do whatever he wants. If the men's program is more prestigious then I would say he'd absolutely go but otherwise, I doubt it. He's got it too good.

He will take over the men’s program at Stonybrook and try to attract better 91 players to turn the program around. It has been going downhill for a while. Will be a win win. He can recruit his own kids and stay in his new house.

Has to be a big school making cash with football and hoops. Lax makes very little if anything for these schools except adding some prestige to the overall athletic program. He already makes almost $200k which is a lot on the womens side. Most of the coaches are $40-$70k. People forget he won with men already. He wins everywhere

Easy there, winning at D2 compared to D1 is comparing apples to oranges. Different level all together. With that said he will never t leave Long Island so Stonybrook Men’s would be a logical step. Still don’t see that program going anywhere

Why can't schools like Stanford, most Ivy's, Bucknell, Villanova, Richmond, Ohio State, Rutgers etc... Be more competitive? There are a lot of great schools that would be the right fit for a lot of kids yet they can't find a way to field a competitive team.

Is it coaching or is there simply not enough talent?

He is not leaving Long Island, he wants his own kids in a lax hotbed, and he is highly involved in their lax teams. He kids are all part of very talented teams that would be impossible to replicate anywhere else at this point. Not to mention the Assoc. Head is interviewing for head spots now (late fall), she would just stay if JS was leaving and take over.

You just mentioned two completely different levels of lacrosse. Rutgers and Stanford don’t belong with the rest, not to mention Penn and Princeton are Ivy’s and two of the better programs in the country, so what are you saying? By the way Ohio St, Rutgers and Richmond are far from great schools.

Comes down to coaching, not enough quality head coaches. It takes a lot to run a program, a lot more than just x's and o's. Just look at how much SS has struggled with the learning curve. She can coach kids and make their skills and knowledge of the game better, but that is less than half of it. Its the fund raising, managing personnel, planning travel, etc. All can be overwhelming.

Stonybrook is done after this year. He has a special group of girls. Unfortunately they’ll come up short in the end. He did as much as he could for that program. Will now try to elevate the mens program to a top 10.

Yes, Penn and Princeton are Ivy's and they have great programs. I said most Ivy's are not very competitive. Although Rutgers and Stanford are more competitive than Bucknell and Vilanova they are not as competitive as they should be. I was not talking only about academics, I was talking great fit for many students.

Not sure its a troll, sounds pretty accurate to me. There is a real shortage of really good coaches out there both in college and club. Just because you played doesn't make you a good coach. Most of these teams win in spite of their coaches based on the skill and athleticism of their players. SB went from 3 wins to 14 overnight with Spalina and he wins everywhere he's been. Florida and others can't break through because they don't have a coach that can take exceptional players to the next level in tight situations. The sport doesn't pay very well so unless you get to the top quickly many potential good coaches aren't staying in the 24 hour rat race and endless relocation. The other things that stop teams from jumping up is the players. Once you get outside the top tier of nationally recruited women, the sport is very balanced with talent

It's called an Athletic Director - they make schedules, plan travel and deal with almost all administrative stuff. If there's one thing SS can do its raise money, what she can't do is evaluate talent and/or recruit it when she stumbles into it. all you've heard for the last several years is the her players don't want to play for her, but are stuck there. Seems to be the exact opposite at SB...

Is it coaching or is there simply not enough talent?


Comes down to coaching, not enough quality head coaches. It takes a lot to run a program, a lot more than just x's and o's. Just look at how
much SS has struggled with the learning curve. She can coach kids and make their skills and knowledge of the game better, but that is less than half of it. Its the fund raising, managing personnel, planning travel, etc. All can be overwhelming.


It's called an Athletic Director - they make schedules, plan travel and deal with almost all administrative stuff. If there's one thing SS can do its raise money, what she can't do is evaluate talent and/or recruit it when she stumbles into it. all you've heard for the last several years is the her players don't want to play for her, but are stuck there. Seems to be the exact opposite at SB...


JS is very successful but his players are not exactly thrilled to be playing for him either. Let’s just say he can be a real task master and is not easy on them unless you are one of the chosen ones and I hear even reducing some scholorships along the way .Not sure how some get away with it but NCAA rules in terms of practice times ,length, days in a row etc are just suggestions .

Possibly, But they still stink, if Spallina had this team, they'd have won 5 trophies. I dont get why people from LI go here and not SB.

If they can’t beat UNC this year they probably never will. UNC has been starting 5 or so freshmen and another 2-3 who never started an NCAA game prior to this year .As far as BC being deep , they are never deep and run their offense generally thru 2-3 girls .I will still take UNC this year but should be a good game.

SB is done after this year. As good as KO is, she can’t do it alone. JS far from dumb and knows this. If he doesn’t move on, he’ll crash and burn along with his kids who depend on daddy-o for their success.

Did you not watch BC at all last year, everyone on the offense was a threat, and next will be the best BC team ever Kent(rumored) and #1 recruiting class. Also Apuzzo will be back, easily team to beat next year.

People choose schools for various reasons and though SB has a great lax program, it isn't the end all be all. Boston is a great City for young people and is a great place with lots of intern/career opportunities closer than a 1 1/2 hr train ride. There are also lots of other schools that provide a different student and student athlete experience that girls desire and prefer. Not to mention they may want to get away from home and experience another part of the country.

Maybe because BC is a way better school and doesn't look like prison!!! The Bc program has accomplished more than SB and will be better than SB in years to come, the coach cultivates talent over 4 years and is getting blue chip recruits.

The two schools are really an apples vs oranges comparison. Not knocking Stony Brook but hard to compare a SUNY with a private school. Also Suffolk County/Port Jefferson is not Boston and the campuses are completely different. There was mention of internships and career opportunities in another post in the Boston area and they are dead on. Boston is on Amazon's short list for the second headquarters just on the young talent alone in the Boston area.

Maybe yes and yes. The real issue is a commitment from the university to the sport. Remember that the schools you mentioned (all schools with athletic programs) have many varsity sports (and club sports). All sports must be funded, recruited, marketed, etc. You would think Harvard would get studs every year but they don't.

I can tell first hand Villanova does not support women's lacrosse. Fine school and lacrosse gets you in and they throw a couple of bucks your way you are doing all right. Just don't expect to compete. They have a great men's basketball team ($$$$) but a so-so women's basketball team (competitive this year). Same sport, different support.

You mentioned "right fit". What does that mean? Villanova could be a right fit--good engineer, nursing and business school. You have a bright student that wants to play lacrosse Nova might be the place. Actually any of the schools might be the "right fit". D3 might be the "right fit". NESCAC schools such as Hamilton, Middlebury, Williams, Tufts, Amherst, etc are very difficult to get accepted and have great lacrosse without the time commitments of D1. Maybe that is the "right fit" if you have a bright student who wants to study pre-med.

If the "right fit" is just getting on a top 20 D1 team then you are missing the point of higher education and setting up your child for possible failure. Check out some of my older posts as I did a four year study of the class of 2013 from the NY Metro area. Only 53% of students recruited to play lacrosse in college were on the roster their senior year.

There is not enough talent. The best players are recruited by the best programs and most choose to attend and play for one of those schools. Some very good players slip through the cracks and there is a small percentage who choose non powerhouse programs but for the most part the top players go to the top programs (that is why they are the top programs). The best players have their choice of school and most can find the right "fit" at one of the top 10 - 15 programs.

It is possible but unlikely. Top recruits will receive generous offers but 100% at a school like ND is probably not true.

Completely false that they are getting 100 % price of attendance. Its possible but unlikely that they may be getting 100% tuition but would need to be a top 10 player in the country so that narrows who you are talking about and I could see her crazy mom saying it but not her dad.

Not something Halfpenny normally does so I'd be surprised. I also don't see a recruit that would fit the bill to be honest, but maybe I'm wrong.

This has been a topic on here for a long time. The answer is YES, I have seen top programs give 100% full ATHLETIC for the top recruits. If anyone tells you that it never happens they are just ignorant. Now, is it more likely that it is a combination of athletic ,academic and/or financial? probably, but if he is willing to say all athletic, I guess you need to take his word for it. It does happen!

How do you know its completely false? because YOUR daughter did not get offered a full scholarship? Speak for yourself and your own experience. Especially don't call people out, when you have no idea who the original poster was referring to. Haters always Hate!

People should carefully read what Bald Bear has written over the years. Very realistic and well thought out. The 53% of LI college players actually still playing by the time they are seniors is a real eye opener as is the info he has provided on D2 and D3 opportunities. Once you go through the process with your 1st kid you perspective really changes for the 2nd 3rd and 4th. Find the right college fit, push the books and enjoy the ride because the fact is very very few have the talent or good fortune to win a national championship

ND meets all need, so if you don't make any money you can pretty much go for free. Also, there's not any YJ player form 2018-2021 that would merit full athletic ride, not even close.

I've been through this. There is no way a school would give out a full athletic scholarship to 1 girl. I don't care who she is. You must have misunderstood the gentleman from the YJ. Her package had to be some academic money and/or a school grant and/or financial aid. All these together, could very well be 100%.

NEVER 100% athletic. academic + athletic + school grant + financial aid = 100%.. YES
I do this for a living. Use your head, they have 30 girls on team and 12 scholarships.

Maybe your daughter needed grants and financial aid ... maybe the girl you are talking about didnt... Only the coach, the parents and the player would know that...

Stop starting trouble. I'm sure if a girl is getting a full ride, her parents wouldn't be going around bragging about it . It's the kids that aren't getting anything, their parents are the loud mouth crazy ones.

Hey Genius.. The coach is going to give academic, grants and financial aid before athletic money. Why should a coach give up an athletic scholarship (that are very limited) if you don't have to. You could have 10 girls on a team getting 100% scholarship, but each girls is only getting 20% of an athletic scholarship ( which is a total of 2 athletic scholarships).

YOU are Wrong!!!! Trust me! I personally know a few that received 100% ATHLETIC!! It is funny how some people are so definitive about what OTHERS received . How do YOU know? You don't!!!! I write this because a parent of a top recruit may get 100% or close and will be afraid to ask for it because people tell them that it doesnt happen!!! Don't be afraid to ask for more. The coach will let you know what your daughter is worth to them.

You are right! Most of the time they will offer academic, financial aid etc.. to the kids they don't deem impact players or parents dumb enough to take scholarship/aid that can change from year to year depending on your Tax return and daughters grades. The parents that are smart, know that the more athletic money you get, the better off you are! If the school really wants your daughter they will anti up the Athletic scholarship (in some cases 100%), they will give the "packages" to the parents willing to take them. I assume you are a parent who took the "package"? Who is the genius now?

According to bald bear research 50% of girls recruited are not on the roster for all four years, academic and need based grants don't go away, that money will be there all four years. I have heard of kids being told they're not getting any athletic money because need based money is going to cover most if not all their tuition expenses and the coach doesn't want to waste scholarship money if that's the case

Academic is always the best route in keeping your money. Do well and you keep the cash for all 4 years. Financial needs change every year and coaches, rosters and the players motivation to keep playing also changes every year. Remember only at half of all college players play all 4 years.

Make sure your kid is at a school she's happy at in case she wants to quit the sport or gets injured. Rarely is it a good thing if you picking a school solely for athletics

North outstanding. Fredericks in and that game goes to NU. Both those teams are ranked too low. That was a game between two top 10 teams, not 11 and 19. That's why these preseason polls r so bad. Now NU will drop from where there are despite being a top 10 team. Duke will move up, but not nearly as high as they should.

Penn State should be ranked below Duke and NU for example. Will it happen, doubt it.


Is Duke now overrated after today’s loss? Let them play 10 games or so before stating your official rankings.

Ahhhh. You can't understand anything until it's already done and you have perfect information. Gotcha. Most occupations and most athletic endeavors require predicting what will happen ahead of time with uncertain information. I guess you don't have a very interesting occupation and likely have very little insight into athletic endeavors. Shame.

I would say at the start of the season Duke , PSU over rated while JMU and UVA under rated . I also think BC is way overrated at this point .In the end would it surprise anyone if UNC, MD, Fl, SB are the last 4 standing .

So when the preseason poll compiles their rankings ahead of time with uncertain information you rip them to shreds but when you do it after a couple of games it was brillant forecasting? Re-read your initial bashing of the poll again and maybe you will see you are doing the exact same thing you criticized the poll for doing. After a couple of games you were still wrong.

Would not be a surprise since all were rated top 5 in preseason poll. Lets get bold. Which other team or two will be in final four? Which of those four will not?

In: Northwestern and UVA

Out: SB and Florida

And before the snide remarks start flying about those not being bold, I believe NU is ranked 13th? and UVA 16th? For women's lax to have teams ranked that low make it to the final four is rare. Navy did it last year.

I noticed that some of the UNC freshman didn't even play - injured or recruited too early and aren't cutting it? I wonder?

How about those UNC Freshman again from Long Island taking on MD! Good to see the red shirt Freshman goalie and Ortega taking on MD and winning!

It is the body of work that will matter come tournament time, not one win or loss. Seeding is going to be a major factor this year as the field of competitive teams is a little deeper than previous years. Getting to the final eight will be tough and getting to the final four will be very difficult. There are definitely several teams that will be outside the top four seeds that can knock off one of the four seeds. In no particular order these teams have a legit shot at the final eight and made even the final four.

UNC
Maryland
Boston College
Northwestern
Maryland
Florida
Virginia
USC
Syracuse
Penn
JMU
Princeton
Duke
Stony Brook
Penn State

Notre Dame? Towson? Virginia Tech? Hopkins? Anyone else?

Actually all four of the starting freshmen had a great day some big goals, ground balls and crucial draw controls. Unc played great team ball offense to defense despite crazy amount of fouls . Some times sloppy but definitely gritty!

UNC defense was poor in first half particularly. Maryland’s defense is also suspect this year. I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is the year neither wins the whole enchilada. Defense wins championships.

What do you mean right now? Are they the number 3 team in the country or not? They either are, meaning they are a favorite to be in the final 4 or not. I say they are not. They shouldn't be #1 or #3. They are about 10th. Very good. Not top 3. Place your bet now. Are they a top 3 team when all games are played? Will they make the final 4? Answer now. Not after the games are played.

JMU caught UNC sleeping. Not a top 10 team, plays a week schedule. If truly top 10 will give MD a good game in a month, if #1 the will beat them. But honestly will probably lose to Pen State in 10 days. I'll give stony #1 even though they haven't really played anyone, be more confident if they blow out NU on the 3rd, they do look good and made the west coast look silly. 'cuse is the master of choke, and plays a hectic undisciplined game and will never beat SB, UNC, or MD. To say UNC and MD are 6 & 7th best is silly. BC is good, I'd say 5th right now but we'll see what they do between now and 3/7 after Navy and USC. Anyone who doesn't say MD, UNC, and Stony aren't the top 3 didn't wtch them play this weekend, best lacrosse in the country, the UNC MD game was a fantastic display of top talent, and like I said Stony made the best the west has to offer look like rank amateurs

Rankings are not predictions, they are a way to put teams in perspective based on actual results. As the season progresses and teams develop a body of work rankings become more meaningful. JMU is undefeated and they beat UNC. As of right now they have the best body of work and should be ranked #1. In your world I guess we should just pick four teams and have them compete in a playoff. No, check that why don't we just declare the champion based on your opinion and knowledge of the game.

So do you think they are one of the three best teams in the country? Or THE best?? Answer, don't deflect. If you think they are, my bet is you will be proven wrong. I wouldn't give you a dime of money to invest or a dime to start a business. I wouldn't hire you to run a business or to teach my children. Your mind seems to be to rigid and limited. It needs to be force fed. You will need to know what has happened before you will make decisions. With perfect information, there is no opportunity. It's already priced in. Take a stab. Is JMU the best team in the country? Come on. You can do it.

Really won’t know how good SB is until the tournament as they play an easy schedule . If playing a difficult schedule prepares you for the championship tournament then SB will be unprepared .Who will be the best team SB faces this year ?

Is this a JMU. [ChillLaxin] response. Barely beat High Point, so good luck there. Just like most other teams. Tons of parody this year people. Get used to it. Loyola outplayed Florida today and basically anybody in the top 30 can beat anyone on any given day. Just a fact. Unfortunately SB is probably the best right now but they are too cocky and full of floppers to root too hard for them even as a LIer.

No, not a fact. Maybe anyone in the Top 15-20 can beat anyone on a given day but even 16 - 20 is pushing it. Until a program like Cornell beats Carolina or New Hampshire Beats Northwestern or Marist beats Maryland I will stick with the Top 10-15 programs. Maybe the top 20 programs . A win here or a loss there doesn't matter, what matters is where the team ends up at the end of the year.

They will not blow out NU. SB has problems on the draw control. The best in the country at draws resides in Evanston. That alone will prevent a blowout. NUs D also looks good. Yes SB offense is outstanding, but NU gave up 5 goals to the team that SBs defense gave up 10 to without Kerigan Miller on the field most of the game. I think SB should be favored in the game, but not by a lot. Don't sleep on NU in that one. They have the better goalie, the better draw player, at least as strong a defense. And they have a fairly unique home field advantage at windy Lakeside field. Looking forward to seeing if SB can take that one convincingly.

Enough with ranking the west coast teams with their cupcake schedules. USC, Stanford, Colorodo, Denver etc

Nice schools but lacrosse wise they just can compete.

Northwestern is different with Lasota she changes them completely! The goalie situation is interesting there as a sophomore has beaten out last years starter who i felt was very good. Northwestern is a top 10 team. Crazy start. UNC loses to JMU. Then beats Maryland who has forgotten how to play defense. Loyola loses to Hopkins then has Florida beaten only to lose. USC up and down. Duke big win them bad loss

USC is definitely a competitive program. Colorado is fighting to be a Top 20 program. Stanford is much more than a nice school and if there is an opportunity for a young women to attend Stanford she should strongly consider it.

Yup, of course she should consider Stanford. But not if she wants great academics AND a nationally competitive lacrosse team. For that she should look to Princeton, Northwestern, Duke or Penn for better examples. Thems just the facts, I reckon.

We get it Stanford is a good academic school which has nothing to do with how competitive a lacrosse team they have. The west coast teams get ranked higher than they should be each year , my guess is because they want to try to grow the sport and think this will help in some way. USC plays essentially a cupcake schedule in which they can zero in their efforts on a few games unfortunately when the NCAA tournament comes around they are not ready for the back to back competitive games and can beat anyone but will find it difficult to be competitive for so many games in a row.
SB although they play a weak schedule will be interesting, if they figure out the draw they can beat anybody. Their midfield is not on par with other top teams midfields but they are well coached and play well as a team.
Florida I just cant figure out.

The schools that you mention obviously get better recruits so if you want a great education and you are not offered a spot at one of those schools Stanford would be a great opportunity. Or if you simply wanted to head out west and play at a great school.

One thing that I find interesting on here is that people seem to think that all players have the choice to attend one the top programs. The reality is that most kids are not offered a spot at the top programs. It works the other way as well, most programs do not get to choose the best players.

For the most part, year after year the top programs grab the majority of the best players.

"They will not blow out NU. SB has problems on the draw control. The best in the country at draws resides in Evanston. That alone will prevent a blowout. NUs D also looks good. Yes SB offense is outstanding, but NU gave up 5 goals to the team that SBs defense gave up 10 to without Kerigan Miller on the field most of the game. I think SB should be favored in the game, but not by a lot. Don't sleep on NU in that one. They have the better goalie, the better draw player, at least as strong a defense. And they have a fairly unique home field advantage at windy Lakeside field. Looking forward to seeing if SB can take that one convincingly. It would go a long way towards me feeling like they can go all the way this year."

As a fan of SB ( no kid enrolled) I think this post is right on.. consistently losing the draw cost them the game against Maryland last year and it appears they dont have it figured out this year either.

If they played MD, Fl, NW ,Or UNC schedule I do not think they would have a chance at going undefeated which thy probably will. I picked those teams as they are all in different conferences yet they all play a much more difficult schedule than SB .Come the time for seeding the NCAA tournament does the committee take strength of schedule into consideration?

If they win out during the regular season they will be seeded in the top four and the NCAA will try to give them the easiest path to the championship, The NCAA wants fans in the seats. Over the years the NCAA has done some pretty bad things come selection time both with bids and seeding (especially on the mens side). That said, Stony Brook will probably be deserving of a top 4 spot. There schedule is not too difficult but they have a handful of decent teams this year(USC, Northwestern, Towson, Penn State, Hopkins). Anything more than one loss and they should not get a top 4 seed. When I look at the top 15 or so teams I don't see many going undefeated,

From what I have seen..That SB team is very good. They move the ball very fast and with precision. I give them a very good shot at winning it all. And I am not from LI! That is a special group of players.

Re: 2018 Women's DI, II & III College Lacrosse Season - 02/27/18 01:29 PM

Love them, hate them, over rated under rated the transformation that has taken place there with Spallina is nothing short of incredible. There was a time that program was losing to Binghamton etc. I do not think they will win the entire thing but i also hope for them to be on final 4 because that type of excitement will help the sport them being a smaller conference school. Regardless this year is going to be fun UNC loses to JMU then beats Maryland. Maryland squeaks by Florida who is nearly picked off by an ok Loyola team. Duke beats northwestern but loses to VT. Who was dismantled by USC USC was beat soundly by SB and NW While handling ND. Fun stuff

SB is going to be the X factor come NCAA championships as you really will not know how good they are playing such a weak schedule. As far as Spallina he is not going anywhere, you would have to more than double his salary for him to break even if he were to leave the area and as far as taking over the mens program why would the AD want that headache .

I can say this was said before and i was guilty few years ago i said on these boards “once the transfers graduate they are done”. agreed they will take a step back but that guy develops players and that goes a long way something that doesn’t happen at many other places. Every year my daughters school a fringe top 10 team gets tons of great recruits and Nothing happens It’s actually sad

Since he said he is answering his own question, I think he is the he you are talking about - and therefore did mean any NYS school. Syracuse basketball has spent a fair amount of time ranked #1 too - granted, only once at the end of the year.

I'd like to jump in on this comment. "a rule bender on the field" means exactly what? Is he violating any NCAA rules per the stated guidelines? Or is he pushing the interpretation of a rule to favor his team (as all good coaches at every level of sport do).

I'd like to know what rule (or rules) he is bending.

She is great. Lets see how BC does against a real top 15 team. Haven't played one yet, despite Navy's silly current ranking. 1 goal win over Michigan at home??? If Kent doesn't play they r not a top 10 team by end of year. Next year you are right, if kent plays they will be a final 4 contender again. Despite their highly overrated coach, btw.

I'd like to jump in on this comment. "a rule bender on the field" means exactly what? Is he violating any NCAA rules per the stated guidelines? Or is he pushing the interpretation of a rule to favor his team (as all good coaches at every level of sport do).

I'd like to know what rule (or rules) he is bending.


Easy Coach.

USC will have to score more than 5 goals to beat BC. Only 5 goals scored vs Northwestern not a good offensive performance.

There are more bad coaches than good ones just like there is more average players than exceptional. That's why the same teams keep winning. Good coaches and good talent. Its so hard for these others teams to break into the elite with the coaches they have.

If you were starting a team and you could pick Apuzzo, KO or McCool who would you pick. The answer to that question says a lot for who the best player in the country is. I'm sure there are other girls to consider but these are the big 3 in my opinion.

Did you watch the game? Goalie made a bunch of saves (named Big ten D player of the week) and the backer zone was played very well. I think SB has a good zone defense. USC scored 10 against them without Kerrigan Miller. I think giving NUs D in that game credit is ok. Don't you?

Re: 2018 Women's DI, II & III College Lacrosse Season - 02/28/18 03:45 PM

East vs west again. NU plays a killer schedule of big time programs every year that's why even when they have 8 or 9 losses the get serious consideration for the tournament. It would be great if SB played the NU schedule. Then we would really get a feel of how good they were. Its a lot easier to get UP for every 4th or 5th game vs having to bring it almost every game. People have to stop with the cupcakes from the west USC, Stanford, Colorado Denver and the rest

McCool

I would have to go with Apuzzo #1, She does so much more than McCool. McCool 2nd best college player this year. 3rd is up for grabs, could be anybody.

That's just a ridiculous statement, "so much more" .Offensively I think Apuzzo gets the nod slightly, at the draw I give McCool the edge but close, and defensively its not even close. There is a reason Apuzzo plays attack and you have to take into account that Apuzzo never comes out of a game while McCool does so you would expect Apuzzo to put up bigger numbers.Watch McCool on the defensive side , she may be the best 1 on 1 defender on the country. Apuzzo is no doubt a great player but if I were starting a team I would take the player that can do it all .That said I don't think Apuuzo gets the recognition she deserves.

KO should not even be in the conversaton with Apuzzo, McCool. KO good offensively, that's it. Apuzzo, McCool do everything.

"wow, someone speaking lilke they really understand the sport. BTW, Apuzzo is a Mid who is playing Att. Would dominate both ends. Best player by far."

This may be the silliest comment I have read. If she is playing attack then she is not a mid.If she would dominate both ends then they would have her playing both ends but honestly is not fast enough .She has an amazing stick and lax IQ but not really elite midfielder type speed.

Whatever. The best player by far at the NCAA level likely won't see the field this year unfortunately. If she does, BC has a shot again. If she doesn't, next year BC will be unreal. Kenzie Kent, if she had not also been such a darn good hockey player, would have been a multiple time tewie winner. Fact. Still should have been last year. All the laxie elitists just can't stand that someone can not touch a stick for 9 months and then step on the field mid season and dominate every team and player in the country. If tewie is for best player, kent should already have one.

Apuzzo, is NOT a great defender. There are better 2 way middies including McCool. Everything else I would agree with what has been said. If I was taking one to start a team I would take appuzo her effect on the circle ,the offense and the ride would be enough for me. Great kid too!

Please , Kent is overhyped , she can score but that is it and Ohmiller is better at it than her , for that matter so is Murphy . What is there 3 women’s NCAA hockey teams , what a joke , so good at hockey . I hear Ohmiller is the best curler in the NCAA .

Apuzzo or KO... both are better than Mcool


KO should not even be in the conversaton with Apuzzo, McCool. KO good offensively, that's it. Apuzzo, McCool do everything.



wow, someone speaking lilke they really understand the sport. BTW, Apuzzo is a Mid who is playing Att. Would dominate both ends. Best player by far.


Whatever. The best player by far at the NCAA level likely won't see the field this year unfortunately. If she does, BC has a shot again. If she doesn't, next year BC will be unreal. Kenzie Kent, if she had not also been such a darn good hockey player, would have been a multiple time tewie winner. Fact. Still should have been last year. All the laxie elitists just can't stand that someone can not touch a stick for 9 months and then step on the field mid season and dominate every team and player in the country. If tewie is for best player, kent should already have one.


If Mia Hamm would have played lax, would have been a 4x tewie...you bc koolaide drinking windbags gotta settle down...best players,best coach,best recruits and best hockey players...blah blah blah


Not sure of that. Doesn't have hands I hear.

Please , Kent is overhyped , she can score but that is it and Ohmiller is better at it than her , for that matter so is Murphy . What is there 3 women’s NCAA hockey teams , what a joke , so good at hockey . I hear Ohmiller is the best curler in the NCAA .


please. She so much faster than ohmiller. Guess u didn't watch the finals last year. Carried the team on her back. 10 points. relentless ride. worked the draw circle. So much more valuable than oh. Oh is as one dimensional as they get. Murphy??? r u out of your mind???? what an SB DB

McCool


If any other player took 20+ shots in a game they would score goals too - everyone remembers the winning goal, but she played very poorly against MD

Albany does have a very young roster this year and a change at head coach. Not sure why the coaching change.

I watched that game and was thinking the same exact thing. Reminded me of John Starks game seven NBA finals. He/she never stopped shooting regardless of a horrendous amount of misses. Extremely low percentage shots that ended up as possession changes. If your going to take a million shots at least aim for the pipe. Would rather see it go out of bounds and get the ball back or come off the pipe for a 50/50 ball. Yeah she had a few goals in the end and the game win assist, but overall it was an ugly game.

Honestly did you even watch the game . First off she did miss a lot of shots but of the 11 she missed 8 were recovered by UNC . I would much prefer they miss the goal entirely and if the low attack does their job its no problem , certainly better than throwing it in the goalies stick. “ Game win assist” or as they say the GWA , lol. She had the winnng goal. I guess the draw controls , more than any other player , or the awesome job on defense matters little . Sorry but Apuzzo and Ohmiller essentially play a weak schedule ,BC because their non conference schedule is an embarrassment , and SB conference schedule is an embarrassment .UNC plays a tougher schedule than just about every othe team , who plays a more difficult one ?

I agree, I believe all of the extra possessions NU will have due to their domination of the draw circle will be Stony Brook's demise. I hope not but you can't give a strong team that many more opportunities. NU 13 Stony Brook 11

Defense = NU by a nose

Offense = SB

Draw = NU

Midfield = NU

Goalie = NU

So question is can SB's offense score enough to make up for the rest of the areas? They can. But won't. NU 11-10.

Say what you want about NW but I think we can all agree that they don't duck anyone:
Northwestern -Colorado, Duke, USC, SB, Marquette, UNC, Michigan, Syracuse, Hopkins, Penn, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Penn State, Maryland, Rutgers

Stony Brook - USC, Stanford, Denver, NW, Michigan, Delaware, Towson, U Mass, Vermont, Cornell, Hartford, Binghampton, Hopkins, New Hampshire, UMBC, Penn State, Albany

For the conspiracy theorists saying JS might leave this year, well you might be right. SB is under a hiring freeze and is $18 million in debt. Their union workers have been without a contract since 2016 in a good economy. It's going to be very hard to give any a coach a raise. So say he wins the championship his stock would never be higher to make a move for a big payday. Makes you think. Hmmmmmmm

Stony Brook is a very good team and their schedule has improved in recent years. Nice to see Northwestern, Penn State, USC, Towson etc... Would like to see Florida on there as well.

When a conspiracy theory is actually proved to be true, it's just a conspiracy.

they won't enjoy it ultimately because the will lose (again) in the NCAAs when they have to play more than one top team in a row. And then they will whine and show their lack of sportsmanship one last time as the program fades back into obscurity.

People forget NONE of the big players at SB were big recruits not one of them they do something many many others don’t do. They take talent and dvelop. Imagine if places like ND did that. They may not be as strong extra few years as this year. But they will stay relevant. Some of these bigger schools constantly disappoint

They keep trying to force the growth and excitement of the game but in the end its still just a few players at a few schools. Sport still needs quality depth

Actually the front runner is from SB but putting the 3 SB players on the list who all do essentially the same thing may make the obvious even more so. They will each put up huge numbers this year but they may make each others accomplishments seem to be more related to the schedule they play and somewhat less spectacular. Seems the PR machine for SB is working well and surprised the left coast star not on the popularity list.

Everyone ready to crown the BC players with all these awards for putting up big numbers against weak teams. I also see people bashing teams schedules BC coming off a National championship game appearance playing some incredibly weak teams. Remember coaches can pick their non conference games and are stick with their conference games Should BC be playing Bingo voluntarily

Re: 2018 Women's DI, II & III College Lacrosse Season - 03/02/18 07:17 PM

Two ways to get there. Northwesten has gotten in by losing 9 games to good teams, others like BC and SB play a cupcake schedule and hop for a bid with no losses. No way the west every cracks the tournament with their terribly weak schedules

Only top 20 next year because of recent reputation and weak schedule which won't expose them as much. Next year they will have the talent of a 20-35 team. This year, they are overrated. In the sense that they are not one of the top 2 teams in the country (preseason rank #2 and now #1) ... they are a top 5-6 team. They will not win the national championship. Promise. They are too weak in the midfield (yes kennedy can fly) and their D is a step down from last year. Goalie is good, not great. Draw??? Anyone, anyone??? If they get an easy draw they might make final 4, otherwise it's round of 8 bye bye again.

My kid cant get in to Stanford and i'm jealous. I can't believe there are clowns on here brave enough to actually put lacrosse over academics without linking the two. You can think it dad but don't say it out loud. It's embarrassing to the entire sport


You are all a bunch of morons.To say someone is an stunad because they picked MD over a top 10 school is short sighted at best and ignorant at worst. There are many things that go into picking a school and just because US News has a school ranked top 10 does not make it the right choice. Say what you want but a premed 4.0 Zoe Stuckenberg with multiple national championships is going to be just fine compared to your struggling communications daughter at Yale. There are a lot of great schools out there and just because you went to a top 10 school is no guarantee of anything.

Keep telling yourself that.....lol
Here's a question for all you Stanford lovers, If Stanford is so much better than every other school, and you and your daughters are so much smarter than the rest of us, why do you care what we think? According to you, you and your daughters are living the dream, at the best school in the world, having a kid so much smarter than the rest of us, probably better marriages then the rest of us, why do you care? So your daughters team got crushed by a bunch of 3rd rate neanderthals and they can barley throw or catch. I mean really, look at those decision making skills they posses, flawless almost 5 out of a hundred times. Who cares they don't have enough dexterity to complete a pass to a girl 5 yards away without throwing it out of bounds, there at Stanford, a bastion of liberal idealism where every loser is really a winner because some magazine says so, and there is no way you spent all that money so your daughter will become my barista like so many other top 10 school grads. You just keep telling yourself that there is no way any of our daughters will be nearly as successful as your little princess because your princess has a better name on the top of a piece of paper and that makes her better. nme7vy (I put that in so you can continue to feel superior to me, you obviously need that)

Looks like Stanford has enough dexterity to catch and throw enough to beat Duke. Just saying.

This is the Stanford guy that said he wasn't. They aren't a very good team. The are a decent team. They have a pathetic schedule. This is the team that lost to Denver. A Denver team that lost 16-3 to SB. Give it a rest already.

To be fair they don't have a choice it's their conference teams don't choose that . Plus rankings should be based on where you started and what you have done so far. Unc hurts your argument loss to JMu and smacked around by Florida even a close game with high point.

Yes, the illegal stick she used all game in the draw circle. Good point. I don't think it would have made much of a difference but you've got to wonder.

Didn’t see the game so curious how the stick check against NU gave SB a goal (from 10 to 11)? And who’s to say she would have scored without it being illegal? Tough to argue that getting caught cheating cost them.

To be clear. LI folks now think using illegal sticks is cheating. Good to know. I usually hear them saying "everyone does it, it's a bogus call".

And lost to Maryland. Of course the thing to notice hear is... Florida has played UNC and Maryland out of conference, UNC has played Maryland out of conference and JMU,NU, Florida on schedule ... NU schedules Stony Brook, UNC, Syracuse, ND, USC, Penn out of conference ... A lot easier playing one or two tough teams weeks apart. Sad.

They have a lot more than three, maybe thirteen.

Gary is changing the game and it is not for the good. Something needs to be done about the blatant cross checks to the back and heads.

Glad the Cuse fans haven't changed either, they sounded as bad as they did in College Park a couple of years ago.

Va wasn't innocent but Syracuse is always this bad.

They have more like 8 [players wearing helmets, I said it before 'cause will never win because of the hectic, undisciplined style of play, but for the record, with a 60 seconds left UVA's goalie has the ball behind the crease, when the 'cuse attacker gets within 5 yards of her she dumps the ball in the crease, that i a goal circle violation and the ball should have been given to the 'cuse attacker on the dot with the goalie 3 meters behind, this is the rule as it is written and has not been changed
Section 18. Once a team gains possession of the ball in the goal circle and the ball is cleared the team must not return the ball to their goal circle until the ball has been played by another player.
NOTE: The Goalkeeper (or her deputy) gains possession of the ball in the goal circle and passes or carries it out of the goal circle with her crosse. It has been "cleared." To be “played”, the ball must leave her crosse and be touched by another player or her crosse must be checked by an opponent.

As usual in woman Lacrosse the refs don't know the rules and blew a major call that would have almost certainly have resulted in a game tying goal. the goal circle rules take up only 2 pages of the rule book and these morons can't get a simple call correct

Watch the game. I'm at the games. Two offensive and one defensive player had helmets on today. Two others wore prior due to concussions. Defender who got nailed in the head with a ball today probably wishes she had one on.

Draw controls NU 18-9. So it would stand to reason that if goal stands, NU has a 66.666% chance of getting possession. So at the very least, SB does not score 15 seconds later and there is a decent chance score is 10-10 by end of sequence. So yeah, it was a two goal swing.

. Acting the way they do? It was an aggressive game on both sides. Maybe two overly aggressive fouls caused by Cuse. And some good dramatics by va. I thought it was a great game. No blow out and until the last minutes was anyone's game. Someone has to win and someone has to lose

Draw controls NU 18-9. So it would stand to reason that if goal stands, NU has a 66.666% chance of getting possession. So at the very least, SB does not score 15 seconds later and there is a decent chance score is 10-10 by end of sequence. So yeah, it was a two goal swing.


Northwestern is a good team. Stony Brook is a really good team. It will not be easy for anyone this year (including SBU). Without question there is a much deeper field of teams this year. Getting to the Final Four is going to be tough.

Name the highest ranked team SB has played ... now BC. So you have a 1,2 that hasn't played any top 10 teams (no Navy is not. 1 goal win at home over Michigan???) BC will get a chance to prove themselves over the rest of the year. SB joke schedule.) Will listen to the nonsense all season until SB loses in NCAAs. Then the whining will begin.

My front runners for a Championship are Florida and Maryland .

Next with best shot at Final Four : Stony Brook, Boston College, Virginia, Syracuse , Northwestern .

JMU, Penn, Princeton, USC, Navy all competing to make it to the final 8 and a chance to knock someone off and get to Final Four.

Also in contention to make Final 8:Towson, Duke, Stanford , Loyola, Hopkins,Notre Dame, Georgetown , Colorado, Penn State.

Some very good teams will be left out of the Tournament this year.

Let me help you with a correction ... SBU is a really good offense. They are an ok defense and pretty poor in the midfield/draw. Having said that, it doesn't look there is a complete team out there, so it should be fun and interesting. It is a shame SBU doesn't play another meaningful game until the NCAAs. Certainly allows them to rest and stay healthier potentially than the teams that play real schedules. So they should have a big advantage come tournament time.

With new teams at the top of the rankings (teams that have never won anything) coaching will come into play this year like never before if the ranking holds for the season. Of the top 10 teams only 3 coaches have ever won anything. Teams like Florida should have won a couple by now with their talent but their coaching let them down. Its really tough to win the big one. Looks to be an exciting season

Section 18. Once a team gains possession of the ball in the goal circle and the ball is cleared the team must not return the ball to their goal circle until the ball has been played by another player.
NOTE: The Goalkeeper (or her deputy) gains possession of the ball in the goal circle and passes or carries it out of the goal circle with her crosse. It has been "cleared." To be “played”, the ball must leave her crosse and be touched by another player or her crosse must be checked by an opponent.

As usual in woman Lacrosse the refs don't know the rules and blew a major call that would have almost certainly have resulted in a game tying goal. the goal circle rules take up only 2 pages of the rule book and these morons can't get a simple call correct



Actually as usual the fans just don't know the rules. The UVA goalie in the last minute of the game dumped the ball back into the crease 2 times but both of those times the ball was passed to her while she was standing outside the crease so it is completely legal. Its why when someone tells you the refs completely ruined the game for a team I tend to not believe it.

Yes. They were neck and neck until late against Virginia while missing their top middy. I watched Virginia vs Syracuse and Virginia is very good. Northwestern lost to Duke (who was blown out by Stanford). Splitting hairs with 12 or 13. But no, not many teams ranked below are better. Time will tell but right now I would say teams many teams in the Top 15 are very close. Some teams play tough schedules and others play soft schedules. Princeton has a tough schedule (not as tough as Northwestern) but tougher than most. USC also right there. All 3 somewhere between 10-15 for now.

The only question on that play by the VA goalie at the end of the game is whether she stepped on goal circle line before she tossed ball in. check the replay in slow mo. Everything else she did was legal.

Re: 2018 Women's DI, II & III College Lacrosse Season - 03/05/18 04:37 PM

Refs made correct call on the VA goalie. They blew it on that yellow card to VA on the free shot. That is not a card.

The theory you apply to today's current rankings " Of the top 10 teams only 3 coaches have ever won anything." can be applied to every ranking, every day of all 100+ teams for the last 15 years running. Hope you didn't spend too much time to come up with that tid bit of wisdom.

Brown is better than you think. Only down 8-7 at the half with Boston College. Brown is not top 20 but they are close.

Here is a bit more math for you... NU won 66.66% of the draw controls and SU scored 60% of the goals. I will take the later stat, you can have your draw math. How many additional draws and goals would NU have lost with a legal draw stick? By the way, you also lost on your home field.

I think the most interesting thing about this banter here is that SBU again got killed on the draw. It will come back to bite them if they don't figure it out. They have played a grand total of zero top 10 teams (at least in current ranking) and will not the rest of the season. Come NCAAs, if they haven't improved meaningfully in that area, they will not win the national championship. Their offense is great, but you cannot lose that many possessions against a series of top teams like they should face in the NCAAs and not run into problems at some point. I hope I'm wrong, but this is a problem.

Gait, Spallina and extremely weak officiating are going to be the reason helmets with be mandatory within the next 5 years. Such a shame and uneccesary. If the refs actually threw people out of games the hacking would stop.

Worst of all the polls.

JMU
BC
Virginia

All belong in the Top 4.

Northwestern too high.

Penn State not Top 20.

Cornell , Denver, Virginia Tech should not be ranked.

Aside from UNC being a little lower, this is the most accurate poll. This takes strength of schedule into account. JMU has 1 Quality win. Virginia has 1 quality win. A close loss to another top 5 team shouldn't effect the rankings much. Someone has to lose. You are probably of the same mindset that UCF is better than Alabama in college football this year. They were undefeated with 1 quality win and people are calling for them to be National champs. If you play a tougher schedule you are way more likely to lose a game or 2.

U do realize as an SB fan, a comment like that weakens your argument that SB should be #1 right? What you should be saying is "NU is really good, and SB still beat them by 5 on their field." Get it?

Otherwise the answer is, SB hasn't played anybody good, and don't really deserve to be #1.

But I guess that's why you went to a place like SB. See, if you were able to get into Northwestern, you'd be smarter than that.

Newsflash. Nobody knows what a good win and a bad win is and we won’t know for a few more weeks. The venom some people spew over polls that mean zero is insane. Let the season play out crazy Dads. its funny tho once some of you lose the lacrosse argument turns to “ my kid is smarter than yours “ lolol it’s early have fun watching our daughters without the crap

Poor offensive execution but I wouldn't say overmatched. Stick check changes game from 10-9 to 11-8 w 10 to play. That makes it more like a 14-11 game. And Northwestern dominated time of possession. They need to play better on offense, but outmatched is a bit of an overstatement.



Didn’t see the game so curious how the stick check against NU gave SB a goal (from 10 to 11)? And who’s to say she would have scored without it being illegal? Tough to argue that getting caught cheating cost them.


Draw controls NU 18-9. So it would stand to reason that if goal stands, NU has a 66.666% chance of getting possession. So at the very least, SB does not score 15 seconds later and there is a decent chance score is 10-10 by end of sequence. So yeah, it was a two goal swing.


Northwestern is a good team. Stony Brook is a really good team. It will not be easy for anyone this year (including SBU). Without question there is a much deeper field of teams this year. Getting to the Final Four is going to be tough.



Let me help you with a correction ... SBU is a really good offense. They are an ok defense and pretty poor in the midfield/draw. Having said that, it doesn't look there is a complete team out there, so it should be fun and interesting. It is a shame SBU doesn't play another meaningful game until the NCAAs. Certainly allows them to rest and stay healthier potentially than the teams that play real schedules. So they should have a big advantage come tournament time.


The offense won't be resting - 3 career scoring records in sight and lots of cupcakes to beat up on.

Im not a fan, but if Florida can continue to play like they did against UNC they will have a legit shot this year. as good as the offense was that day the goalie played out of her mind in that game and was the reason they won. games like that are hard to duplicate.

As the saying goes... Defense wins championships. As we are seeing there are a lot of teams that can compete this year. Maybe more than ever. Down the stretch, once we are in the quarter finals the team that play the best defense will advance. A hot goalie can make the difference in a tight game vs two competitive teams. Looking forward to it, should be a lot of fun.

I can't argue that. Offense just not getting it done: turnovers and silly shots.

I guess you are one of the no nothings who does not value Defense. not going to win many games giving up 17 goals. Offense was not the problem. Go take a course or something and learn something.

JMU is 7? They beat UNC and UNC has 2 losses already. Virginia had a good win against Cuse but lets not get carried away jumping up 5 spots.


Worst of all the polls.

JMU
BC
Virginia

All belong in the Top 4.

Northwestern too high.

Penn State not Top 20.

Cornell , Denver, Virginia Tech should not be ranked.





I can guarantee you that JMU and Virginia will not be top 10 in polls come May, BC the only one of the three that a chance of being top 5


BC will not be in the top 5 at end of year either as soon as they start laying their ACC schedule and not the cupcake non conference games they will be exposed.



It will be fun watching how this season plays out. It's exciting seeing so many different teams and their players work hard and experience success. What is a quality win - beating a top ten team? Then Maryland, UNC and Florida only have one quality win at this point, also. Good for the teams like Stony Brook, Navy, JMU etc. that are inserting themselves into the conversation. They certainly don't have the advantage of numerous "top recruits" and benefit of the doubt that other teams get year in and year out, but here they are competing with and beating top teams. Not sure why that bothers some of you so much.

The difference with SB is they will never play another competitive game until the NCAA tournament and a good chance that no team they play will be in the top 10 at the end of the regular season ,curious if that will have impact on seeding. As far as BC I just think they will have a difficult time when they get to their in conference schedule not sure why you think that means their ranking bothers me.

With 13 (did they go to 14 this year?) automatic qualifiers which teams will get an at large bid and who will be left out?

America East: Stony Brook

Atlantic Ten: UMass / Richmond?

ACC: Maryland (only kidding) BC / Virginia / UNC?

Atlantic Sun: Jacksonville

Big East: Florida

Big South: High Point

Big Ten: Maryland

Colonial: JMU / Towson?

Pac 12: Southern Cal

Patriot: Navy / Loyola?

Southern: ??

At large:

Virginia
UNC
DUKE
Syracuse
Notre Dame
Georgetown
Northwestern
Hopkins
Penn State
James Madison / Towson?
Princeton / Penn? Maybe Dartmouth, Brown or Yale?
Stanford
Colorado
Navy / Loyola?

Any other teams have a chance?

Some good teams will be left out this year and getting to the final 8 will be tougher than usual.

All the teams you just mentioned are trending up the polls, except Penn State and Duke. Polls all had Penn State about #4 to start the year, that’s a big tumble if they don’t make the playoffs. At the rate they are going, they will likely fall of top 20 this week, just as Duke has done.

Polls have nothing to do with selection.

I'm betting Princeton and Duke get in. Either Colorado or Stanford but maybe not both.

Penn State will have a tough time. There schedule gets tougher as the season goes on.

The NCAA does not take the polls into account. Strength of schedule, common opponents, significant lobbying by schools and cost of travel are all issues.

Bold prediction indeed. I knew Princeton and Duke were strong programs but I didn't realize how strong.

Duke has made the NCAA Tournament 19 times in the past 22 years.

Princeton has made the NCAA Tournament 23 times in the past 26 years.

I think they will both make it this year.

Duke didn't make it last year, which is the most relevant of those past 22 years. They got destroyed by an "ok" Stanford team and look very average in general. They have their difficult ACC schedule still to play. I don't think they will get an at-large bid this year. The Ivy other than Penn looks to be down this year. Princeton squeaked out a 12-10 win over Brown?? Princeton will likely get in on reputation, but they are on the edge of deserving to IMO.

Bold prediction that teams on that list that won't make it are: Duke, Penn St, Stanford, Princeton, Colorado


All the teams you just mentioned are trending up the polls, except Penn State and Duke. Polls all had Penn State about #4 to start the year, that’s a big tumble if they don’t make the playoffs. At the rate they are going, they will likely fall of top 20 this week, just as Duke has done.


Polls have nothing to do with selection.

I'm betting Princeton and Duke get in. Either Colorado or Stanford but maybe not both.

Penn State will have a tough time. There schedule gets tougher as the season goes on.



What if Penn State wins those tough games?

Something is amiss in Happy Valley. The Nittany Lions are 3-3 on the year and 6-6 in their last 12 going back to May of 17'. They were lucky to squeak by Princeton to get to the Final Four only to be blown out by Maryland 20 - 10. The Lions have been struggling.

They have a slight break with Rutgers, Albany and Drexel (no guarantees) before they run the gauntlet.

Princeton
Hopkins
Ohio State
Virginia
Northwestern
Maryland
Stony Brook
Michigan

Last four games take place over a two week stretch with two away games (Maryland & Stony Brook) . Depending on how things go even Michigan is no gimmie.

The good news is: Penn State has one of the toughest schedules around so they will have their chance to earn their way into the Tournament.

Not sure what their chances are.

Good Luck @WeAre...

Bold prediction indeed. I knew Princeton and Duke were strong programs but I didn't realize how strong.

Duke has made the NCAA Tournament 19 times in the past 22 years.

Princeton has made the NCAA Tournament 23 times in the past 26 years.

I think they will both make it this year.


Just like one of the poster's said, name gets them in...


And good names they are. That said, I am guessing that you are just another troll who has nothing positive to add to the discussion. As usual, just a one line jab in an attempt to diminish a player, town, team, parent, coach, university, program, recognition list, AA team etc...

I am also guessing that your daughter was not offered a spot at either school and that you believe that your daughter, her program / school deserves more recognition both athletically and academically than they get. I will also wager that you have come up with excuses as to why your daughter was not offered a spot at particular schools. In any event, both Duke and Princeton are great programs and excellent schools.

Princeton and Duke consistently play extremely difficult schedules and they are rewarded for their effort based on their results. Along with Teams like Virginia, Penn, Maryland, Penn State, North Carolina, Northwestern, Syracuse, Florida, Loyola, and Notre Dame, Boston College; Duke and Princeton challenge themselves year in and year out. They are two of the top programs in the country.

Who's "we all"? You're the same guy who keeps getting his fee fee's hurt when anyone says anything about Stanford's lacrosse team not being that great (spoiler alert: they're not, ok?) This is a forum to discuss college women's lacrosse. There are several teams that seem to keep getting mentioned on here as upper echelon teams that simply are not this year. Stanford is one of them. The post above is a pretty good list of them. Penn State's preseason ranking at #4 has proven to be a joke, as predicted. They will miss the ncaa's after being a final 4 team last year. Stanford will not be going to the NCAAs, just like last year. Duke looks to be in trouble for a bid as well. They will need a big win or two in their ACC schedule. Princeton is not a tournament team this year. Olivia Hompe was a big loss. So instead of whining, make your case. You insert Stanford into every post. Why don't you tell us, will they make the NCAAs? I agree with the poster above. They will not.

No affiliation with Stanford whatsoever and no, my feelings aren't hurt. I do not keep inserting them anywhere and I do not know much about them. You on the othe hand are the only one on here who obviously has a major issue with Stanford. Colorado is a decent team so no shame in yesterdays loss. Your obsession with bold predictions is also comical. Long season. I root for Florida but try not to post about the Gators. I do not hold animosity against any team.

Princeton, Duke, Loyola, Stanford and Colorado will all be just fine.
Oh, and by the way, if you knew anything you would know that although Hompe was a very good player she was not their key loss.

Why don't you tell us who you root for?

The coach is not very going d but even worse is not a good judge of talent . Some coaches ie Spallina see great potential in players even when not a highly touted recruit and are also able to see the over hyped prospect for what they are .Some coaches ie Halfpenny buy into the hype and are unable to recognize true talent on their own .

A question for the Windbag (not my creation but whoever named you that could not have done a better job!) ... Instead of never actually having an opinion and just bloviating (look it up), how about you put forth something useful, or stop posting. There are a lot of insightful posts on here, none of which happen to be yours. The fact that you are somehow personally offended when a poster (btw there have been many different ones on here) points out that certain teams (Stanford, ND, Penn St.) are not up to their usually level (in Stanford's case it is more that they have reverted back to what they used to be after having a couple of year's above their norm) is kinda sad. I know you are all for participation trophies, good for you. This is D1 lacrosse we're talking about. Grow up, Big Guy.

Now, as to some teams that are playing well this year ...

Stony Brook - offense amazing, need to figure out draw and get more consistent midfield play. Will need goalie to come up big in NCAAs if they r going to win it all.
Florida - Just need to prove they have the consistency to win 3 big games in a row.
JMU (big surprise and way to go)
Maryland, despite their loss to UNC, will be right in at the end again
If Syracuse could figure out their draw issues, they would have a shot
Penn looks to be playing very well
UNC needs to get better goalie play and solve their overall defensive issues if they want to win it all, but of course they've got a lot of talent
UVA has taken a step forward this year
Northwestern is an improved team from the last few years
And others

As to the teams that have taken a step, or in some cases two, backwards:

Penn St (You tell me, should they have been pre-season #4?)
ND (Where to begin? Aldave is great, but she can't do it alone.)
Stanford (Mediocre coaching and depth issues)
USC (The loss of MM to graduation was big)
Princeton (Despite your nonsense, the loss of Hompe 76 G 110 pts has been very big. They r having trouble scoring.)
Cornell (Senior heavy team last year)

So now, if you can bring something useful to the table, do so. Otherwise, STFU, Big Guy.

Halfpenny body language was terrible, she stopped trying to coach with 4 minutes left in the game, at least she was able to judge that they weren't wining the game

Syracuse is in big trouble. Why isn't he using Levy more, she can score but on the bench a lot. Gaits daughter a turnover machine. good to see he uses the other 2 LI girls a lot. cuse goalie looked weak, 2nd cuse goalie looked like she never played the position. omg. what is going on Gary. look in the mirror , bench your daughter.

This is why come crunch time you never know. Halfpenny overmatched again, Gait hasn't won enough big games consistently even with his 50 player roster. Don't count UNC, Maryland and SB just based on big game coaching

Unfortunately, the "FLOP" is in every game. The problem with women's lacrosse is the subjectivity and the good acting only helps to sway calls.

Zero percent chance JMU makes the final 4. They will lose by 10 against Maryland , nice team but no way should they be ranked above SB .BC has not beaten anyone and until they do they should be lower otherwise not bad.

Re: 2018 Women's DI, II & III College Lacrosse Season - 03/12/18 02:01 PM

A lot of talented players have gone through programs like Duke, ND, Hopkins, Georgetown. A lot of issues come into play, politics and poor coaching and intangibles that outsiders are unaware of. Successful programs utilize the talent they have and more importantly know how to use this talent. Players do well and they ultimately win.

This is not just a numbers game. These are real people playing a live game, not machines!
When the NCAA rounds begin there WILL be upsets and the better team may go home early. It happens every year in every sport.
As each round advances any team can win or lose on any given day.
We wouldn't bother with playoffs if it was just about who finished in first place at the end of the regular season.

Some on this site do not understand that. There is one lunatic who is obsessed with his own predictions.

Rankings should be based on actual results and a teams year to date body of work. Strength of schedule should be considered and most recent performance and trend should be given more consideration.

2014: 16-3 going in. Lost to Syracuse in round of 16.

Some on this site do not understand that. There is one lunatic who is obsessed with his own predictions.

Rankings should be based on actual results and a teams year to date body of work. Strength of schedule should be considered and most recent performance and trend should be given more consideration.



So says the Windbag who proclaims what rankings "should be." Computers are good for what you suggest, not humans. Too much bias, as indicated by your own statements on here. The only computer ranking that really matters is the final one, once the computers have all the necessary data. Your methodology has too few data points to be very accurate this early in the season. It is therefore a poor way to try to understand which teams are stronger than others. And therefore renders your ranking system as, at best, very flawed for now. I know you are afraid to stick your neck out and make any kind of forward-looking statement for fear of being wrong, but try. I'm not obsessed with my own predictions, I'm trying to get some discussion going with people who have actual knowledge of the teams and their strengths and weaknesses. If you have any knowledge, as you profess to have (see your statement that Hompe was not a key loss for Princeton) please engage in the conversation with your opinions. I would love to hear from informed individuals about their views of the teams. I welcome yours.

So in your opinion, which teams are better than you thought they would be this year? Which are underperforming your expectations? What have been the reasons for each? Do you think they will remain over/under achieving teams throughout the season? Which teams do you think, based on your deep knowledge, will be there in the end? Who will win it all?

Take the leap, it'll feel good. You are allowed to be wrong. It's ok. But put something out there that furthers the discussion, rather than just posing questions you don't answer and saying all you can rely on is what has already happened. It's not true. People have to make educated decisions about an uncertain future all the time.

#1 recruit stuff is all nonsense, just like team polls and rankings - especially the HS rankings of teams and players. some kid piling up gawdy numbers against a bunch of over matched teams might not be quite the same player when put on a level playing field where everyone can play

If you have any knowledge, as you profess to have (see your statement that Hompe was not a key loss for Princeton) please engage in the conversation with your opinions. I would love to hear from informed individuals about their views of the teams. I welcome yours.

So in your opinion, which teams are better than you thought they would be this year? Which are underperforming your expectations? What have been the reasons for each? Do you think they will remain over/under achieving teams throughout the season? Which teams do you think, based on your deep knowledge, will be there in the end? Who will win it all?

Take the leap, it'll feel good. You are allowed to be wrong. It's ok. But put something out there that furthers the discussion, rather than just posing questions you don't answer and saying all you can rely on is what has already happened. It's not true. People have to make educated decisions about an uncertain future all the time.



You do realize that you have been responding to multiple people. Also, you should not be calling anyone a windbag.

BTW, here is a hint regarding Princeton. The Goalie was their biggest loss and the most difficult to replace.

Some on this site do not understand that. There is one lunatic who is obsessed with his own predictions.

Rankings should be based on actual results and a teams year to date body of work. Strength of schedule should be considered and most recent performance and trend should be given more consideration.

Oh please, nobody tried to tear down anyone and nobody was called out. The (other) poster stated that the loss of an Attacker was too much for the team to overcome (was the poster calling out the current Princeton Attack? No, I do not think so) I was pointing out that although the loss of an attacker was certainly a loss it was not as big of a loss or as difficult to overcome as losing the best goalie in the country for two years running. There are many other players on offense to make up for the production loss of one individual. Maybe you do not have that 100 point scorer but maybe you have three players with 40 points each. There is only one goalie and when you lose a Two Time First Team All American that is the toughest player to replace. That is not a knock on current players.

The intent was to point out that losing an exceptional goalie is a bigger loss than losing an exceptional Attacker and that it is the most difficult position to replace. The post did not call out anyone or try to tear anyone down. In my opinion finding a game changing goalie is much more difficult than finding a high scoring attacker.

So please do not try to spin it any other way. Again, I do not recall you being outraged when the other poster brought up the key loss of the attacker. (I guess you could be the same poster. IDK)

Pretty entertaining so let's get this straight
Coaches poll - coaches have no clue
Inside lacrosse - media has no clue
Nike us lacrosse - also clueless
Just wondering besides yourself who really knows what happening? Time will tell sit back and enjoy the season


College coach has somebody fill out the form for them every week, they don't even look at it, and the assistant that does it spends about 5 minutes on it - great analytical work
How much real hard core analysis do you think really goes into women's college lacrosse? Girls HS lacrosse? Nobody knows is the real answer and nobody other than players and their parents cares. How was PSU #4 to start the season, some great analytical research placed them there? The brilliant lacrosse minds at IL? U-19 team cut Apuzzo and Pirecca, how was that for quality analysis? It's all BS and something fun to talk about, but it is really meaningless

Not sure that I totally agree.

- As the season wears on, the "team polls and rankings" do tent to shake out and become more accurate and credible. (preseason and early season do not have a lot of credibility).

- At the end of the season HS Rankings up to about #15 to 20 are pretty good. Not perfect but most of the teams listed at that point are deserving.

- HS player rankings are pretty good (maybe not the exact order) but most of the players that have been listed on the IL top 30 - 40 young gun list have gone on to do well in college. Those rankings have nothing to do with the HS season, it's all based on Summer where the kids on the top club teams do compete against each other. I do think however that where the player goes to college has an impact on how they perform in college. Coaching is a major factor and all coaches are definitely not created equal.

Do you believe that coaching does not play a roll in how a team and its players perform?

Lets talk about that. Which college coaches are the best at developing talent? Which ones recruit best? Which ones underperform with good talent? Which ones should not continue on in their jobs?

Best at developing talent? JS, Amonte-Hiller, Timchal

Best at recruiting? Levy, Walker

Underperformers? Halfpenny, O'leary (has a chance this year to get out of this category, again)

Where does Reese fall? Has the natural advantage of the Maryland feeder w in-state tuition.

- HS player rankings are pretty good (maybe not the exact order) but most of the players that have been listed on the IL top 30 - 40 young gun list have gone on to do well in college. Those rankings have nothing to do with the HS season, it's all based on Summer where the kids on the top club teams do compete against each other. I do think however that where the player goes to college has an impact on how they perform in college. Coaching is a major factor and all coaches are definitely not created equal.


Lets talk about that. Which college coaches are the best at developing talent? Which ones recruit best? Which ones underperform with good talent? Which ones should not continue on in their jobs?

Best at developing talent? JS, Amonte-Hiller, Timchal

Best at recruiting? Levy, Walker

Underperformers? Halfpenny, O'leary (has a chance this year to get out of this category, again)

Where does Reese fall? Has the natural advantage of the Maryland feeder w in-state tuition.


A more appropriate term than "developing" could be utilizing. I think the best coaches can:
• Identity talent / potential
• Recruit / Sell / Land (convince to attend school)
• Teach / Coach
• Effectively Utilize Talent
• Prepare / adjust
• keep team and individuals focused
• Inspire

IMHO, The best coaches are at the following Schools: in no particular order.

Maryland
Northwestern
Boston College
Navy
Princeton
North Carolina
Stony Brook
Penn
Colorado
Penn State

(Duke & USC) pretty good as well.

List is pretty good. Acacia Walker, however, should not be on that list. She checks the first box, very good (to the point of unethical) recruiter. Poor coach. Assistants do all the real coaching there. Ask the girls. And before all the "your daughter got snubbed there" comments start flying, that is not the case. She had an offer from BC. Turned it down. Saw first hand what she was all about with some other recruits and said no thank you.

Some on this site do not understand that. There is one lunatic who is obsessed with his own predictions.

Rankings should be based on actual results and a teams year to date body of work. Strength of schedule should be considered and most recent performance and trend should be given more consideration.



So says the Windbag who proclaims what rankings "should be." Computers are good for what you suggest, not humans. Too much bias, as indicated by your own statements on here. The only computer ranking that really matters is the final one, once the computers have all the necessary data. Your methodology has too few data points to be very accurate this early in the season. It is therefore a poor way to try to understand which teams are stronger than others. And therefore renders your ranking system as, at best, very flawed for now. I know you are afraid to stick your neck out and make any kind of forward-looking statement for fear of being wrong, but try. I'm not obsessed with my own predictions, I'm trying to get some discussion going with people who have actual knowledge of the teams and their strengths and weaknesses. If you have any knowledge, as you profess to have (see your statement that Hompe was not a key loss for Princeton) please engage in the conversation with your opinions. I would love to hear from informed individuals about their views of the teams. I welcome yours.

So in your opinion, which teams are better than you thought they would be this year? Which are underperforming your expectations? What have been the reasons for each? Do you think they will remain over/under achieving teams throughout the season? Which teams do you think, based on your deep knowledge, will be there in the end? Who will win it all?

Take the leap, it'll feel good. You are allowed to be wrong. It's ok. But put something out there that furthers the discussion, rather than just posing questions you don't answer and saying all you can rely on is what has already happened. It's not true. People have to make educated decisions


College coach has somebody fill out the form for them every week, they don't even look at it, and the assistant that does it spends about 5 minutes on it - great analytical work
How much real hard core analysis do you think really goes into women's college lacrosse? Girls HS lacrosse? Nobody knows is the real answer and nobody other than players and their parents cares. How was PSU #4 to start the season, some great analytical research placed them there? The brilliant lacrosse minds at IL? U-19 team cut Apuzzo and Pirecca, how was that for quality analysis? It's all BS and something fun to talk about, but it is really meaningless
True, They also pushed weisse, who not only got pulled during the U19 event, but has since been benched, so much for the top recruits/ lacrosse experts


So you definitely know more lololol what a hammerhead
why a hammerhead? Isn't it true?

Pretty entertaining so let's get this straight
Coaches poll - coaches have no clue
Inside lacrosse - media has no clue
Nike us lacrosse - also clueless
Just wondering besides yourself who really knows what happening? Time will tell sit back and enjoy the season


I do ... lol

Agreed. She is also not well liked by many on that team. The girls like each other and the school but not big fans of Acacia especially the ones who are not on her very small list of favorites.

Was 10-1 Navy in first half. Not a two goal game 15-13 in 2nd half. Florida has such a tough time being consistent throughout the season and even within games.

My daughter happened to be on Boston College last year, a few things.
1. the assistant coaches do not do all of the work. They only had two coaches for the majority of the year last year
2. She is a tough coach yes, but she is genius and makes great game plans.
3. She develops talent, look at Kaileen Hart,Kate Weeks,Dempsey Arsenault,Sheila Rietano. They all grow have grown significantly throughout their times at BC.
4. She has taken over a team that was the worst in the ACC and has taken them to the top in 6 years.
5. How is she unethical?? She has a great product to sell.
While BC may not be for your daughter, you shouldn't speak for everyone else. Acacia has set her teams up to be top notch for the next few years and will continue to get top talent.

3. The assistants develop the talent, she plays with her kids.
4. She recruits well, as stated above. She got 2 of the top 3 in the country (Rix and Stanwick) along with a BC legacy that fell in her lap with no scholarship (Mannelly). Those girls were why they went from worst to one of the better teams. That then allowed her to recruit better girls and it built from there.
5. She lies, leads kids on and then dumps them late in the process. Have seen it happen to several girls.
6. No one is speaking for everyone else. Boston College is a good school in a great city and the girls on the team are a nice bunch of kids.

Acacia Walker is not a great coach. I'm glad your daughter had a good experience there.

This blog is pathetic. The only good coach is Spallina, The only good player is Kylie Ohlmiller. Whenever someone gets praise, Li trolls have to put people down. Newsflash the SB program has accomplished nothing yet.

A few homer comments that need to be corrected 1)she is no genius 2)they are not the top of the ACC ,they have never won the ACC and do not look like they will anytime soon 3) as far as getting the top talent ; not really . What makes you feel she does ?

I do believe she developes players better than some . I also know she is a tough coach especially if you are not on her small list of favorites and many of the girls on the team are afraid of her at best .

Sorry that your experience was not more positive. At least your "very detailed" negative post was heartfelt and genuine. Obviously you have strong feelings based on actual experience.Some people would choose to keep the negative feelings to themselves but you choose to put them out there and thats okay. Others may have a different opinion and that is fine too. When I see detailed posts based on actual experience (even when negative) I have no problem with the it. If another poster has had a different experience that was positive they can post that as well.
Put the information out there and the rest of us can form our own opinion or we can choose to have no opinion at all. Much better to have a genuine post than the hit and run one line BS post put out there by a troll trying to start trouble.

My daughter was recruited and given a great offer by Acacia and our experience was very positive. I felt the coach was honest and my daughter loved her.

At least you are not a troll trying to stir the pot or bait the BC Faithful with... "BC Coach is terrible, they will never win."

I know several players at BC and all are happy and say very positive things about Acacia and Jen Kent. If you ever listen to her interviewed she is very positive and gives a tremendous amount of credit to her coaches. All Top 20 coaches will be tough and demanding. The experience will not be positive for everyone at any school especially when it comes to recruiting. It can be a very ugly process that does not bring out the best in people. Acacia is certainly doing something right. She has turned that program around. It is clear that she attracts quality players and coaches - just look at her next few recruiting classes and the addition of Kayla Treanor. A lot of people and families see a lot of good in what this coach is doing.

Good comeback for Florida, but shouldn't be down to a team like Navy by 8.


Navy is a darn good team.


A darn good team doesn't blow a 9 goal lead


Navy is a solid team in most areas and very good on the draw. Florida was just a better team Florida won this game being down by 9 and and minus 16 on the draw and got below average goalie play There are not many teams who can overcome a deficit like that without success on the draw. Give them credit, they got really aggressive on D and caused a ton of turnovers. Navy had a tough time stopping the Florida offense from getting quality shots. The navy goalie had a good day with 14 saves. Everyone gets on O'Leary but she made some adjustments down the stretch that made a difference . Called on the freshman when the pireccas were getting locked off and she got it done. Florida is a huge wild card this year.

You obviously did not watch the BC/Navy game. It was anyone's game with 5 minutes left. BC scored some late meaningless goals. I am not sure what that says about the gators. What does it say about Virginia that Florida beat up UNC and Virgina lost to them by 4. Wait, but Cuse beat Florida and lost to Virginia hmmm. UNC lost to Florida and beat MD.. see where I am going here? I will say I watched Florida against these top teams and the have been dominant in long stretches when all things being equal. We will see if they can put it together down the stretch.

Navy always has a problem clearing the ball, not sure why it hasn't been addressed, at this point its very obvious

Virginia needs to find a goalie and quick, Loyola scores 19 goals on 22 SOG? Syracuse 16 goals on 18 SOG? I can't imagine the #2 goalie would do any worse, but I guess there's a reason she hasn't seen any action.

StonyBrook will not win because they are weak at the draw. They have a very good attack, besides that they are average, and will be exposed when they verse at team that is solid at all positions.

Re: 2018 Women's DI, II & III College Lacrosse Season - 03/15/18 01:02 PM

Loyola is a very good team and will be dangerous come tournament time. They play a challenging schedule and have proven that they can come from behind and win close games. Their goalie has been playing well. They have also proven that they can win even when they are out played in crucial aspects of the game (shots, ground balls etc..)

In the past three games, Towson, Princeton and Virginia all had more shots and more GB's yet The Hound's came out on top in each contest.

Georgetown, Syracuse and Navy still to come. I think Loyola is the type of team that can knock a top seed out of the tournament early. (I do not think they will one of the top six seeds).

Teams Like Loyola, Hopkins, Towson, Penn, Princeton, Navy USC even High Point can surprise come tournament time.

I "cut and paste" below and corrected the 2017 record...

-( Will history replete itself? Will Stony Brook once again bring a gaudy record into the tournament only to be knocked out before the Final Four?

2014: 16-3 going in. Lost to Syracuse in round of 16.

2015: 18-1 going in. Lost to Princeton in round of 16.

2016: 15-3 going in. Lost to Syracuse in round of 16.

2017: 18-1 going in. Lost to Maryland in round of 8.

2018: ??? )-

Stony Brook is a very good team. Their midfield is stronger than you give credit. I think their biggest weakness is their strength of schedule. They could go into the tournament with a perfect record but not played a team ranked in the top 10 at the end of the season. They should be well rested but they will not be battle tested. I think the NCAA will do their best to give Stony Brook the easiest path to the Final Four but there are a lot of teams who can surprise this year.

Elaborate on their midfield being strong please. The way I see it, Kennedy is very fast and if given the opportunity to run it up the field does very well. Other than that I don't think they have much. They are bad on the draw and don't ride well at all. That also is the weak point of their very good attack. Awful on the ride. For as great as K.O. is, she is relatively slow and gives very little effort on the ride. Their midfield play to me looks below average, certainly for the "#1" team in the land. Happy to see evidence presented to the contrary.

Yes, they should. Which is why playing a strong non-conference schedule is good for you. Tell me, why do some coaches shy away from tough non conference schedules? (Acacia Walker anyone??) Holy Cross, BU, San Diego St, Brown, Binghamton, Yale, Dartmouth ... Holy Cupcakes, Batman.

Ok Daddy. Look, we get it. Your daughter decided to attend ND. You think she's amazing. She probably gets a lot of accolades. And you just don't understand how she could dominate mediocre to bad high school and club teams, and now can't do jack at the collegiate level (or maybe she isn't there yet and you think she'll be the savior?) Either way, the bottom line is, ND gets a collection of hyped players that for the most part aren't team players. Bad recruiting. Which then leads to a bunch of coach killers on the roster. Halfpenny doesn't stand a chance.

Not the person that you are responding to but felt the need to chime in.

If you do not think coaching plays a major roll you simple have no clue. Coaching is as important as talent.

You sound like a complete J*&^ A$% who is bitter because your daughter did not receive any accolades or wasn't offered a spot at ND. ND has had plenty of talent over the years the coach is not very good at all.
And no, my daughter does not attend ND although she was recruited there and received an offer.

Not all coaches are created equal, some flat out S*&%.

all the geniuses on this forum one should figure out that the team or teams that actually decides to play defense is best equipped in the post season There are not many that do. For instance Syracuse is ranked 90th in the NCAA Florida 70thmaryland 53. Loyola 89th. I know people are selective of what facts they actually look at.

These aren't facts. Its fake News! Very misleading rankings. These teams have all played a tough schedule against teams with very good offenses. In addition they have good offenses that can score in a hurry which gives more possessions in the game. This stat should be scores by possession if you really want to see the best defenses. Do you really think that Cincinnati or Iona has a better defense than these teams? comical

Shot clock has changed the entire paradigm of the game, for starters it has created parody to a large degree, another side effect is that every ncaa, school and individual statistical record will be broken - goals, assists, dc, gb, etc. You now have to play a FULL game, no more stalling, no more take a 4-5 minute break in the middle of the game until your middies get their legs back. It causes a sloppy and wildly inconsistent game when its full speed ahead every 90 second possession. Still think the men's game has it right with the refs calling the stall and throwing on the 30 sec clock

Usc vs Colorado tomorrow any predictions


These aren't facts. Its fake News! Very misleading rankings. These teams have all played a tough schedule against teams with very good offenses. In addition they have good offenses that can score in a hurry which gives more possessions in the game. This stat should be scores by possession if you really want to see the best defenses. Do you really think that Cincinnati or Iona has a better defense than these teams? comical


Yeah Maryland’s games vs UMBC Hofstra and William and Mary were real tough games lolol

Coaching Coaching Coaching. You need both talent and good coaching. It doesn't matter who is on the field , you need good coaching to be successful.

Ok Daddy. Look, we get it. Your daughter decided to attend ND. You think she's amazing. She probably gets a lot of accolades. And you just don't understand how she could dominate mediocre to bad high school and club teams, and now can't do jack at the collegiate level (or maybe she isn't there yet and you think she'll be the savior?) Either way, the bottom line is, ND gets a collection of hyped players that for the most part aren't team players. Bad recruiting. Which then leads to a bunch of coach killers on the roster. Halfpenny doesn't stand a chance.

darn you are jealous. Your holiday is coming up and you don't have to wear the color, you are already green with envy.

Sorry, my daughter does not go to ND and no she is not coomited there either. Just a fact, you need both talent and good coaching in order to be successful.

You sound like one of the jealous, bitter , haters who troll this site.


Fun fact. You are the one trolling the ND coach. You are the one being negative. But of course you know they have the talent and not the coaching right? Couldn't be the other way around?

There is one reason a program like Notre Dame is not more successful and it is coaching.

If as some of you say.... "the players are just not that good" or "they are all over hyped" then who is to blame? It's on the coach. Recruiting is part of coaching. Identifying talent is part of coaching. If they do not have the talent it is all on the coach. Notre Dame is an excellent school, if they are not bringing in top talent it is because of the coach.

If the bitter pricks are wrong and Notre Dame does bring in legit talent and they underperform that is on the coach as well.

Some schools have a tough time landing the top talent but Notre Dame is not one of those schools.

It is really simple, if she does not have the talent it is her own fault. If she has the talent and still can't compete with the best programs it on her as well.

So whenever a team loses it's the coach's fault, got it. Way to take the blame off the players who actually play the game.

Why even have a coach if it is all on the players? Just let them run around and do their thing.

You are another parent who knows very little about athletics and team sports.

What do you think is happening at ND? We are not talking about one game or one season. Why are they unable to consistently be a Top 10 program?

You need both talent and coaching but coaching is the more important of the two.

Love it. You have all the answers AND know everyone else's background. Mensa, I'm sure. You obviously have an axe to grind with the coach. The players at ND have underachieved. They certainly deserve some of the blame. Have heard for years that the girls on the team do not have good chemistry. You can blame that on the coach. You can also blame that on the girls. Maybe they are a bunch of selfish, me first players? Probably with a bunch of me first helicopter parents, too.

It's not a quality win for a legitimate #1 team in the country. Most of the teams up there year after year (Maryland, UNC, Northwestern, Syracuse, Florida) would view a win over Towson as a typical win. Their measuring tick is higher than that. I will give you that it's as good as SB can do because they have such a weak schedule, but just because the other teams on the schedule are really bad, it doesn't then elevate a Towson to some kind of status that they don't deserve. The #1 team beating a team outside the top 10 in women's lacrosse is almost always a given.

Who picks the talent??? That's a big part of the job, letting YJ and Steps directors tell you who to recruit might not be in your best interest if you're the coach at ND

Great so lets parse words. So whenever a team underachieves some nebulous expectation, it's the coach's fault, got it. Way to take the blame off the players who actually play the game. You really seem to want to protect and coddle these athletes that are underachieving.

How do you know they are underachieving btw? Maybe the players just aren't as good as you think they are. See the problem with your logic?

Lets leave it at ND is not very good. The coach needs to coach better, and the players need to play better. Lets call it 50/50 and move on to some teams that actually matter in women's lax. ok?

So would that be the same as Maryland beating unranked Hofstra by 7 or Cuse beating unranked Harvard by 7 or UNc beating high point by 4 Come on a win is a win that's all that matters

It would be #1 Maryland last year (2017) beating:
# 13 Northwestern by 8 & 9
#9 Florida by 10
#10 Syracuse by 10
#14 Virginia by 5
#15 JMU by 5

That's an average win total for Maryland in those games of 8 (7.833).
I actually expect SB to put up a win by 7-10.
It is also the kind of score a true #1 puts up over teams like Towson in years past. Since SB does not play any of the current top 8 teams in the ranking, the only way to tell if they really deserve that #1 ranking is for them to win games like this by margins like Maryland did last year. It's fine to have that type of expectation for them. Relax with all the name calling and stop being so nervous.

Notre Dame should be better. ND is a good program that consistently ends the season ranked in the Top 20. They are one of the Top 10 - 12 programs in the country. They just can't seem to break into that group of elite teams that make it to the Final Four or win a championship. What holds them back? Coaching. Absolutely no other reason.

Missed the point, everyone loses on occasion when they probably shouldn't, then there are teams that lose far too often when they shouldn't - coach buys the groceries and makes the meal, so that's where it starts and far too often the meal has not met expectations

You are missing the point. Who says they shouldn’t be losing? Why? I say they should be losing. The players they have are just not as good as everyone keeps saying. You keep saying they should be winning when they are not. What’s your evidence that they should be winning?

They you get the other side of this discussion with Northwestern who plays a tough schedule but has wins against wait for it.... Marquette, Canisius, Detroit Mercy and then a decent win against Colorado and a solid win against USC. Does not matter if you play a tough schedule and cannot win with losses against an ok Duke team and top teams like Stony Brook and UNC. Does it prepare them for the post season, maybe, they win a game or two in the playoffs but have not sniffed a national title in six years after complete domination for years.

Big difference between losing and underachieving...


Great so lets parse words. So whenever a team underachieves some nebulous expectation, it's the coach's fault, got it. Way to take the blame off the players who actually play the game. You really seem to want to protect and coddle these athletes that are underachieving.

How do you know they are underachieving btw? Maybe the players just aren't as good as you think they are. See the problem with your logic?

Lets leave it at ND is not very good. The coach needs to coach better, and the players need to play better. Lets call it 50/50 and move on to some teams that actually matter in women's lax. ok?


Missed the point, everyone loses on occasion when they probably shouldn't, then there are teams that lose far too often when they shouldn't - coach buys the groceries and makes the meal, so that's where it starts and far too often the meal has not met expectations


You are missing the point. Who says they shouldn’t be losing? Why? I say they should be losing. The players they have are just not as good as everyone keeps saying. You keep saying they should be winning when they are not. What’s your evidence that they should be winning?


The point is they are NOTRE DAME, the school recruits itself, if the coach had any clue they would easily be a top 10 team every year, ND doesn't have to beg kids to go there. So again, she isn't recruiting the right kids and/or doesn't know what to do with them once they are there, not a comment to this group in particular, but the program since she's been there has consistently underachieved.

Acacia is an amazing coach and person. She is much more than a coach. She is a role model for the girls. It’s disgusting to say those things about her especially since the cause of your daughters failure was more than likely the guidance and advice she received from you.

Complete bull [ChillLaxin] post. I know some of the kids who thankfully chose not to go to BC. And I’m pretty sure we know who is behind this smear campaign against Acacia. Keep it up and you and your kids name will be posted to set the record straight because you are a train wreck!

It's not a quality win for a legitimate #1 team in the country. Most of the teams up there year after year (Maryland, UNC, Northwestern, Syracuse, Florida) would view a win over Towson as a typical win. Their measuring tick is higher than that. I will give you that it's as good as SB can do because they have such a weak schedule, but just because the other teams on the schedule are really bad, it doesn't then elevate a Towson to some kind of status that they don't deserve. The #1 team beating a team outside the top 10 in women's lacrosse is almost always a given.


Being in America East definitely hurts Stony Brook. I think JS has gotten as many challenging games as he could. He knows the regular season means nothing and SB are going to the tournament no matter what. Who's going to stop them from winning the AE championship? No one. So you have to figure he doesn't care much who the team plays as long as it makes the team better. Florida has been on their schedule for years, and this year they aren't? Seems fishy. I'm willing to bet he didn't get many takers when it came to scheduling games against top competition. If you look at it from a Maryland, UNC, Cuse, FL standpoint - why would you want to make SB better by playing them in the regular season? If you win, it doesn't stop them from advancing to the tournament so what is the point? And either way, it better prepares SB for the postseason. If I was one of those coaches, I wouldn't play SB either. It is a good strategy to let them get lazy playing the lackluster AE teams.

I would expect the number 1 team to beat the number 14 team in women's lax by 7-10 goals.


Beat them by 5. Too close for comfort for SB. Tied at 8 with about 10 minutes left in 2nd half. A number of weak calls, Towson with a number of unforced turnovers that SB capitalized on, otherwise game would have finished closer than 13-8. Final score does not reflect the game.

Oh wow. they are NOTRE DAME. What is that supposed to mean? Newsflash, plenty of people don't think Notre Dame is all that. The school recruits itself? It's in the middle of nowhere, freezing and to non catholics is way down the list. The academics are good but not Ivy level. If that was the case, Stanford would win every year. Or any number of schools that have a more complete package to more people than Notre Dame.

Success or lack there of is on the coach. We are not talking about winning or losing individual games we are talking about "The Program" and body of work over the coaches tenure. Now, there are Division I programs that are not going to be able to compete with the top programs. These are the programs that are not "fully funded", have subpar facilities, have limited or no help with admissions, have very small budgets, have very little support from the school, are lesser know schools, schools that are not desirable to many players from "hot bed areas". Many of these school may actually be very successful in their own right but they are not going to be competing with the top programs in the country (and that is okay).

Some of The Coaches is responsibilities include:

* Identifying Athletes.
* Determining which of those Athletes will help their program.
* Recruiting "selling".
* Committing / signing / landing (convincing players to attend their school).
* Teaching / Coaching / Training.
* Developing Team Culture.
* Setting Team Goals.
* Leading.
* Inspiring.
* Game Planning.
* In game coaching.
* Deciding who plays in games and who sits.
* Selecting assistant coaches.
* etc...

If the coach does not recruit top talent who is to blame?
If the coach can not utilize, develop or inspire the talent they have who is to blame?
If the strategies, schemes, tactics and plays are unsuccessful who is to blame?
If the assistant coaches are ineffective who is to blame?

This is a Team Sport and players must be coached and set up to succeed. Simply having great players is not enough. Those players must be utilized correctly and all all players must work together as a team. The coach must paint the big picture and set the overall tone. The coach must implement strategies for all facets of the game (Draw, Transition Offense & Defense, Settled Offense, Settled Defense, Redefending, Clearing, extra-man, man-down, etc..). Offensive and defensive concepts, schemes, sets and plays are all on the coach and the players must know their roles and responsibilities at all times. Any coach who allows an individual player to "do her own thing" will ultimately be undermined by that player and it will hurt the team.

Notre Dame has everything in place to be more successful: Quality Academics, University Support, Excellent Facilities, Budget, Fully Funded, Academic Support for Student Athletes etc..

Notice I said "more successful". Notre Dame is one of the Top 10 - 15 programs in the country. Some believe that with all the school has to offer they should be better. Some want to blame the coach, some of the haters want to blame the players.

IMHO the coach is okay, not great but I don't think terrible.

When was the last time ND finished the season ranked top 15 or better?


2012: - 9
2013: - 12
2014: - 12
2015: - 14
2016: - 7
2017: - 18


Notre Dame is one of only ten programs to be ranked in the Top 20 at the end of the season in each of the past six seasons.

Here is the list:

Maryland
North Carolina
Syracuse
Penn State
Northwestern
Florida
Princeton
Penn
Virginia
Notre Dame

Duke, Boston College, Stony Brook and UMass have finished the year ranked in the Top 20 in five of the past six years (Duke & BC have made The Final Four).

That is why I would consider them one of the Top 10 - 15 programs. They are not Maryland or North Carolina but they are better than approximately 100 other programs.

About to get myself in trouble but here it is .Have been watching as many games as possible w the Tewaaraton in mind . Start w KO , probably the best finisher in the game but the eyeball test says a lot is a function of their offense and who they are playing. She ends up w a lot of 1 on 1 opportunities little of which is created by herself .
Shayna Precca deserves to be in this discussion , scoring at a high rate mainly thru her own effort creating her own opportunities . Neither player adds much other than scoring as not involved in the draw and neither great at riding.
Apuzzo is also in the discussion and I believe the best all around offensive player as in gets teammates involved but also scores . She is good at the draw not great and decent at the ride .
Casey Bear should be high on this list , does it all , good at the draw ; solid defense , scores on the offensive side .
That said if I were starting a team there is no question in my mind I would take McCool as my first pick , excellent at the draw and on the circle , superior defender , scores although not the best shooter , great in the clear and ground balls and a do it all between the 30’s player.
I don’t think it’s that close if your looking for an all around impact player.

Agreed. Good analysis. If the award is for nifty passer and flashiest stick KO is a great option (Charlotte North at Duke might be better though because she is outstanding creating her own shot as well.) McCool is the best all around player in college.

Stony Brooks offense is designed to get layups (as all good offenses should be designed). Stony Brook also understands how to run a fast break (not just have someone charge to the goal).

It is really a function of coaching. Some coaches can develop an offensive scheme (and teach it) that can get the defense to slide/move/rotate and then move the ball fast enough to get that easy layup. Other coaches either do not understand it or can't teach it so the rely on players to try to run to the goal (create their own opportunity) which rarely will result in a championship. In most cases that stye of play will implode come playoff time and or be shut down by good coaching and solid team defense.

Give me the do it all midfielder who is selfless, plays great defense, hustles to get back on D, comes up with ground balls and knows when to go to goal and when to move the ball.

Could possibly agree but as we all know team must be in the top 5. Duke is not very good so she out. also to keep in mind KO is not a one dimensional finisher she broke the single season assist record as well. Think Kiernan from Colorado is an interesting player to watch, do not think Maryland has a candidate

KO is not a one dimensional finisher, agreed. She is a great player, no argument here. Just think her overall impact on the game is not as great as someone like McCool. If there was an award for best offensive player, she is on the very short list. I believe some other players impact the overall game more is all.

Agreed. Good analysis. If the award is for nifty passer and flashiest stick KO is a great option (Charlotte North at Duke might be better though because she is outstanding creating her own shot as well.) McCool is the best all around player in college.


Could possibly agree but as we all know team must be in the top 5. Duke is not very good so she out. also to keep in mind KO is not a one dimensional finisher she broke the single season assist record as well. Think Kiernan from Colorado is an interesting player to watch, do not think Maryland has a candidate


KO is not a one dimensional finisher, agreed. She is a great player, no argument here. Just think her overall impact on the game is not as great as someone like McCool. If there was an award for best offensive player, she is on the very short list. I believe some other players impact the overall game more is all.


If you're looking for a do it all player, no one other than a midfielder will qualify. That's a problem.

Shayna Precca deserves to be in this discussion , scoring at a high rate mainly thru her own effort creating her own opportunities . Neither player adds much other than scoring as not involved in the draw and neither great at riding.
Apuzzo is also in the discussion and I believe the best all around offensive player as in gets teammates involved but also scores . She is good at the draw not great and decent at the ride .
Casey Bear should be high on this list , does it all , good at the draw ; solid defense , scores on the offensive side .

I think Charlotte North is a better attacker than KO. So IMO, if KO isn't even the best player at her position, and it's a position appropriately called "lazy middie", then someone like McCool is more deserving of the award.

Attack is a considered a "lazy Middie" are you an stunad? Attackers tend to have the best stick skills on the field0 otherwise known as finishers, playmakers etc..Obviously that comment came from someone who never played sports or lacrosse for that matter!

"If you're looking for a do it all player, no one other than a midfielder will qualify. That's a problem."

There are attack players such as Apuzzo who contribute on the draw and are better than others at the ride so I tend to look more to them. I also tend to look at it as if I were starting a team who would I take first and at this point that player would be McCool .

Re: 2018 Women's DI, II & III College Lacrosse Season - 03/19/18 01:18 PM

We all know that high scoring attackers are very important and they generally get most of the recognition but the midfielder who does everything well and plays between the lines is what make or breaks a team. If your middies are lazy and can't play D you are in trouble. If your middies are head down go to goal it's going to be a problem. All positions are important but having fast, aggressive middies who make smart decisions in transition and on offense and who hustle back on D then communicate and play solid D is most important. They are more times than not the same players who control most of the draws.

You really like to attack people. "lazy middie" is the term used by many in the women's lax arena. Ask a coach. It is meant as a joke. Get over yourself. If you actually knew anything about the game, you'd know that.

Wow ND outside the top 25. Deservedly so but what a fall. Don't get Navy at 12. 2-goal win over Ohio St, 1 goal win over Michigan and OT win over Colgate?? That is not the #12 team in the country. Do think the top ten D1 Poll looks pretty reasonable. Don't think JMU should be #4, but I get that they beat UNC and for now that's how the voters are voting.

Navy is not #11 nor do they deserve to be 12 with an OT win over colgate, 1 goal win over michigan and 2 goal win over ohio state. 2 overrated teams playing eachother is a circular argument.

You would think if Acacia thought she had a top team they would play at least a few decent teams in non conference games in stead of the cupcake schedule they have played. You can rank BC at #1 for all I care there is no way they win it all . If you think they are truly in the discussion you are just as blind as the poster that hates everything Acaicia .

What do you think SB, UNC, Maryland beats Yale by? Anyone one want to bet only 4??? No disrespect to Yale, they're really smart and are having a nice little season, but I would bet that Maryland beats them by 10?? Is that controversial? I think not. BC is simply ranked too high. All the evidence says so. Now if Kent plays, I'll change my tune. She makes them instantly a final 4 contender. Without her, they are in the 8-12 range.

If you took the BC top player and leading scorer off of that team, would they even be in the top 10? Do they have any depth?

Most BC fans expected this to be a down year and would agree that they are not as strong as their ranking. Your comment about their top scorer is silly - they do have her and next year they will be a legit top 5 team with her back along with Kenzie Kent, Dempsey Arsenault and one of the top recruiting classes in the country. .

Not as many quality teams. Not a knock on D2.

That’s totally a knock. Anyway, 7 of their games were vs a top 15 team.


Good Coaching at Queens College. and they have the best recruiting class.

Sorry there are others but I would not argue that they are near the to of the list. If that the case it will depend on how much the committee values the defensive side of the game as McCool is in my opinion possibly the best player in college on the defensive side of the ball.

If you do not think she is in the top 5 and possibly the best defender in college you just have not been watching. Sorry it offends that a middy is the best defender but honestly if whatever defender you feel is better had a better stick and could put it in the back of the net she would be a middy also. Lets hear your list of Tewaraaton worthy defenders.

But more teams are bunched together in D3 regardless of talent level. In D2 the competition falls off a cliff after the top handful

Florida women’s lacrosse is unwatchable especially the LI players . The whole team are fouling machines w the LI defender the worst , the flopping on offense is gross lead by the LI middy and the goal celebration dance has caused me to throw up in my own mouth way too often generally by the LI attackman .

McCool's first two years were her best, in 6 competitive games this year 21 goals on 56 shots (37%), 3 assists, 2 more Turnovers than Caused TO (11/9), Below average FP shot percentage,12 GB & 51 DC - the DC's are the only top ten category she's in regarding any offensive or defensive metric. The double digit shots every game seems to have slowed down, perhaps Levy spoke to her. Great player, but seems to have drifted from the team concept that initially made her great. That being said, being on team USA and the UNC marketing machine will go a long way with the voters so anything is possible

Such a short sighted response. There is plenty of talent at the D3 level. May not be as strong as players in your top 20 D1 teams but Top 10/15 teams very likely could beat middle/ bottom D1 teams. Some of the D1 programs so average yet parents will beat their chests to brag their daughters play “D1”. There are many top D3 players that decided that their futures beyond college are worth more than going to an average college merely to be able to say they played D1. Stop living through your kids and get a life

Honestly if you are going to post at least have a clue ,first off your stats are not even remotely close to correct , second comparing stats is ridiculous unless teams have played schedules that are comparable .You obviously have not watched her play and instead of saying someone does not deserve it why don’t you tell us who does.

Stop. There is not plenty of talent at the D3 level. Please save your condescending BS about average colleges. You appear to be the one living through you kid.

So, the young women at Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Penn, Duke, Stanford, Brown, Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Cornell, Georgetown, Cal Berkley, USC, Virginia, Michigan, North Carolina, Boston College, William & Mary, Boston University,University of Florida, Lehigh, UC Davis, Villanova, Penn State, Ohio State,George Washington, UConn, Syracuse, Maryland, Army, Navy etc...

Don't care about their future?

You sound very arrogant. If your daughter was a decent lacrosse player and also had good grades she would be at a DI school. I know, I know Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Northwestern and Duke are all over rated. You had offers from Hopkins and Notre Dame as well but you choose to go D3. Georgetown wasn't good enough and USC and Berkley were too far. Virginia, Michigan and North Carolina are state schools, yuk.

Nothing wrong with DIII but lets not get delusional.

Dude, you nailed it. I actually used to be much more impressed with her until this year. This year has the me brand lacrosse going hard and not executing it very well. All players roles will change from year to year with upper classmen graduating out then under classmen pressuring from below. Not all players get better each year, some get worse. It could be they don’t fit the new role, it could be they garner more attention from opposing teams, or a myriad of other reasons.

D3 is a great choice for many. But you are overstating the talent level a bit. The top teams, meaning the champs and maybe 1 or 2 more, would maybe slot in around 70th in D1. They would not beat middle D1, but would beat the bottom 3rd. The 15th best D3 team would be ranked below 100th D1 and then from there it scales down fast.

It's not a knock. D2 does not have depth. So you will have a team suchs as Queens that plays a difficult schedule with a bad record. The division just does not have a lot of good teams. A couple of years back a talented D3 Hamilton team beat the eventual D2 champ Florida Southern (It was actually Florida Southern's last loss of the year). Hamilton didn't make the D3 NCAA playoffs that year. D2 schools also don't have "branding" like D1 and many D3 schools.

The original "curious" post was why does a 2-6 team get ranked. The answer is there are not many quality teams. That is not a knock on D2 as a whole.

I agree--probably more than a bit. D3 is a great choice for many. I have published on this site a study I conducted of the 2013 class and only 53% were playing D1 lacrosse their senior year. The hardest thing to do is match your student-athlete to the best college. I'm a Villanova graduate. Great school. I'm on their advisory board. They do not support women's lacrosse. Many D1 schools do not support women's lacrosse. If it is a good academic match, the student/athlete wants the commitment to D1 and get a degree--perfect. Just realize Villanova is not making the NCAA tournament. Or Bucknell. Or Siena. Or nearly 85% of the D1 schools. It's the state of the game right now. (Now watch, 'Nova will reel off wins the rest of the year!).

D3, in terms of who make the NCAA playoffs, while a little more flexible, is almost as static. The commitment is not as intense, travel abroad is available (you can even play lacrosse abroad, which is cool) and offers students more flexibility with intense majors. The top D3 lacrosse programs are not easy schools to get into, either. Middlebury, Williams, Hamilton, Tufts, Amherst, Bowdoin, Colby (all NESCAC) plus Washington & Lee, Franklin and Marshall, Gettysburg etc all have extremely high standards for admission.

I iterate again: let the fouls get tallied like in basketball and you'd clean that nonsense right up. Do that and nearly every former YJ playing collegiate would be out of the game by half.

I'm with you here, it doesn't bother me to see it..the kid is having fun.. it appears she responding to something or someone on the sideline.. They might as well have fun, if they continue to stink it it up on the field there won't be much of a playoff run in their future.

There are many top D3 players that decided that their futures beyond college are worth more than going to an average college merely to be able to say they played D1. Stop living through your kids and get a life


D3 is a great choice for many. But you are overstating the talent level a bit. The top teams, meaning the champs and maybe 1 or 2 more, would maybe slot in around 70th in D1. They would not beat middle D1, but would beat the bottom 3rd. The 15th best D3 team would be ranked below 100th D1 and then from there it scales down fast.


I agree--probably more than a bit. D3 is a great choice for many. I have published on this site a study I conducted of the 2013 class and only 53% were playing D1 lacrosse their senior year. The hardest thing to do is match your student-athlete to the best college. I'm a Villanova graduate. Great school. I'm on their advisory board. They do not support women's lacrosse. Many D1 schools do not support women's lacrosse. If it is a good academic match, the student/athlete wants the commitment to D1 and get a degree--perfect. Just realize Villanova is not making the NCAA tournament. Or Bucknell. Or Siena. Or nearly 85% of the D1 schools. It's the state of the game right now. (Now watch, 'Nova will reel off wins the rest of the year!).

D3, in terms of who make the NCAA playoffs, while a little more flexible, is almost as static. The commitment is not as intense, travel abroad is available (you can even play lacrosse abroad, which is cool) and offers students more flexibility with intense majors. The top D3 lacrosse programs are not easy schools to get into, either. Middlebury, Williams, Hamilton, Tufts, Amherst, Bowdoin, Colby (all NESCAC) plus Washington & Lee, Franklin and Marshall, Gettysburg etc all have extremely high standards for admission.


If you go to a D1 one school you are going to play lacrosse first and for academics 2nd. Lacrosse is your job. Now any degree from those top schools is great but at many of them the coach directs you toy preferred majors. In D3 there is more balance. Internships, full complement of majors. Study abroad and more. Not every kid wants to practice 2x per day and 30 hours a week. Having said that, very few kids have the skill, talent and drive for top D1 schools and thats why only about HALF of the kids are playing in their senior year. Some kids just want to play. D3 is a perfect choice for them

Yes, thanks for clarifying. I mentioned they've played 7 games versus top 15 teams and unless you knew I was referring to the Queens in Carolina, you'd think I was talking crap. South teams have many northeast girls on them. Let the "D1 all or nothing" and or Ivy snobs have their say. Not hear to change their minds. But if your daughter is sick of the cold, options in the south. South teams going toe to toe with the Adelphi, LIU, Pace, Mercy, etc. Sunshine Conference has added a few new teams and currently have [4] teams in the top 15.....including the # 1 team.

Dude lighten up. Not a Fla Fan by any stretch but the dance was just a young person having fun. Isn't that what they are supposed to be doing.



I'm with you here, it doesn't bother me to see it..the kid is having fun.. it appears she responding to something or someone on the sideline.. They might as well have fun, if they continue to stink it it up on the field there won't be much of a playoff run in their future.


It looked like she was getting a sign that the camera was on her. Boring Game

I iterate again: let the fouls get tallied like in basketball and you'd clean that nonsense right up. Do that and nearly every former YJ playing collegiate would be out of the game by half.


if you watched the game until the end,the announcers were discussing how one ref called 5 charges against Fla in the second half..


Yeah and?

It’s not even worth the response but none of them are even the best on their own teams so they are rarely the focus of the other teams defense Two of them are on teams who play a ridiculously easy schedule and the other is on a team that is playing well below expectations in part because of them .They are all solid players but none are even remotely close .

She wasn't doing her dance after she scored a useless goal with less than a minute less. Celebrations police themselves.

even the announcer thought a particular ref's was clueless... if I recall she had another charge call overturned by a second ref
