Normally you’ve got some monster D1 match up, and it more than qualifies as the best game of the weekend, but this weekend? This weekend is different, and there is a different college level of lacrosse you need to watch.

That’s right, it’s Rivalry Week on LAS! We’re getting all jazzed up for the Hopkins – Maryland game, and we’re going to be taking in the OSU – Michigan game LIVE. But before we get into all that (keep your eyes peeled for rivalry posts all week), we’re going to run down the list of some top notch college lacrosse rivalries!
Salisbury took down WAC 12-7 to win the War on the Shore! This is a huge annual rivalry game, and the winner of the yearly contest takes home the Charles B. Clark Cup each year to make it extra special. Salisbury hosted WAC this year, and the atmosphere was electric, as it always is!
Last year SU went 17-6 (man, that’s a lot of games!) and lost to Stevenson in the NCAAs 12-6. Stevenson went on to win it all, and all of a sudden, people were talking about a new King of the South. But now, Salisbury releases a video on Vimeo titled We Are Salisbury, and it has to have you thinking that last year was an aberration. The guys at Salisbury are clearly ready to roll.
Last year was a very exciting year in Division 3 men’s lacrosse, with Stevenson winning their first ever championship. Aurora College in Colorado made their first NCAA tournament, and won a game. RIT beat Cortland with a hidden ball trick, and Salisbury was finally dethroned as the most dominant team in the South, if only for a season. As fall ball and training continues to roll, here’s a look at some of the top teams from last year, as well as a couple potential dark horses for 2014.
Kliff Kingsbury is now the youngest coach in the BCS, at only 33 years of age. He was the offensive coordinator at Texas A&M last year, and helped propel Johnny Manziel to a Heisman worthy season, so trusting his knowledge and approach should be a little easier, even if you’re an age-ist.
Here’s a great shot captured by TLN’s Contest Colin. The player pictured is Southland Laxer Knute Kraus (Salisbury ’15), and not only is he rocking a jammy pack pre-game, but the Orange Balloon is prominently featured in the background.
The Salisbury Gulls escaped with a 4-3 win at home over Ohio Wesleyan in some Sunday NCAA D3 men’s lacrosse action.
In today’s match-up, we pit two of LXM Pro’s best against each other. A battle just as big as Kobe Bryant and Lebron James, the season veteran vs. the young gun. The only difference is these two are on the same team, work for the same lacrosse company and they are great friends.
The new year means college and pro lacrosse are finally back. What’s everyone going to be discussing in 2013? Chris Rosenthall gives you EIGHT big stories to follow in 2013!
Sam Bradman is probably the most hyped D3 player in recent memory. He’s chosen the LXM over the MLL and signed with STX, and he just might be the most interesting man in lacrosse right now.
We just crowned THREE national champions and yet somehow people are talking about how the second place team “lost” the game. Let’s give the winners their due! Plus news, links and Salisbury – Cortland title game highlights!
Connor Wilson’s 2012 NCAA College Lacrosse Championships recap has it all: Loyola in D1, Dowling in D2, Salisbury in D3, attendance issues, Tewaaraton talk and more!
The College Lacrosse Tournament Pick ‘Em Challenge is back! We have FIVE games where you have to predict winners, and if you nail all your picks you win a strung lacrosse head from Connor!
One of the most skilled college lacrosse players should switch to baseball. He’s got great glove and throwing skills. It results in a funny shot. We’ve also got news, links and our lacrosse video of the week inside!
The NCAA Division 3 men’s college lacrosse semifinals are this weekend in New York and Maryland. Cortland, Tufts, Salisbury and Stevenson are the four teams left. Who will win? Connor previews and predicts the future!
It’s the Tuesday Lacrosse Video Explosion! We take all the best videos from the weekend and cram them into one post for your lax viewing pleasure. EVERYONE is sure to find some lacrosse they like.
Each year the Salisbury Should Go D1 In Lacrosse argument comes up and after SU beat #2 Roanoke 22-5, the calls could become deafening. But here’s why they’re WRONG.
