Tewaaraton Watch List: 2013 Men’s Lacrosse

0 - Published February 22, 2013 by in College, NCAA

The 2013 Tewaaraton Watch List has been released, and since everyone else is putting up the same press release and calling it content, I thought we’d do something just a little bit different. First we will run through the Watch List guys by NCAA their schools, and then I’ll provide a probability scale that a player from a particular school will be the eventual winner. Fun, right?

Phew. What a list of names! Virginia leads the way with FOUR nominations, while teams like Albany, Duke, Cornell, UNC, Yale, Syracuse, Notre Dame, Loyola, Maryland, Denver and Lehigh all have three players on the list. Albany is ALL attack, as is Duke, while Denver is ALL midfield. It’s interesting to see how teams are regarded via their players!

When it comes to “X/10″ score for each team, here is my rational:

D2 and D3 teams, as well as low ranked D1 teams can’t go above a 1 or a 2. It’s unrealistic to think that one of these guys is going to win the award, and it’s certainly not because they aren’t great players. It’s just that if their team isn’t in the fight for a title at the D1 level, they probably aren’t being seriously considered for Heisman of lacrosse. Since D2 and D3 teams literally CAN’T win the D1 title, all their players are given a 1 automatically.

More players helps your programs’ chances and probability. If you look down the list of schools that have a number of players on the watch list, you’ll see these teams are also thought to be contenders. See above for the rationale here, just in the opposite way.

So who do YOU think is going to win the Tewaaraton in 2013? From the above at least, it seems pretty wide open!
