Weekend Watch List: ALL The Lacrosse Action

0 - Published 7 hours ago by in College, Featured, High School, MCLA, NCAA, NJCAA

This weekend, we will all be treated to some serious lacrosse action, and it comes in a number of different forms. It’s not just NCAA D1 lacrosse that’s on and popping, although that is a big part of the equation, and we’ve got story lines to follow from across the lacrosse (box and field!) landscape.

Throwback Thursday: When Stevenson Was Villa Julie

If you’re not amped up for the Stevenson – Salisbury game this weekend, you’ve clearly got huge problems. It’s going to an absolute throw down. I guarantee it! To compliment this week’s Hot Pot, which explains Stevenson’s rise and the greatest burgeoning rivalry in D3, I thought it would be interesting to see Stevenson’s change over the years, in video format.

Albany took down Stony Brook 17-7 this week, and the Thompsons were back to their old tricks, scoring at will, and making the rest of us look like average lacrosse players. This win was huge for Albany because it wrapped up an America East tourney bid for the Danes (they are 3-0 in conference).

Hot Pot: Biggest Game Of The Week

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.

Is This D1 Lacrosse Poll Serious?

While I can admit polls aren’t going anywhere, I can also acknowledge that they are massively flawed, and really only good for one thing: sports commentators blowing hot air about how to rank teams based on games that have yet to be played! I believe polls need to be more results-oriented, and less about what people think.

The Hounds took a 15-6 win over the Terriers in front of their home crowd fans, as the game was played a the Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore.

Tweet of the Week: Why Rank 20 Teams?

0 - Published April 10, 2014 by in NCAA

Over the last few weeks Connor has been asking if the D1 lacrosse poll was serious, evaluating where teams are ranked from #1 to #20 and seeing if the voters got it right. But an interesting thought posed by one of our Twitter followers has us thinking: Is 20 the right number to rank?

Hot Pot: The Three-Way Rivalry

0 - Published April 9, 2014 by in College, Featured, NCAA

The vast majority of rivalries involved two sides, but every once in a while, you find a three-way rivalry that really works. It’s rare, but special, and I’m happy to say that I played a small part in a great one. The Little Three consists of Amherst College, Wesleyan University, and Williams College. While all three of these schools play in the NESCAC, the three-way rivalry is alive and well at each institution.

Is This D1 Lacrosse Poll Serious?

0 - Published April 8, 2014 by in College, NCAA

Ranking D1 lacrosse teams is tough. Last week we had an easy criticism to make and could say Cornell should be #1, by virtue of them being undefeated. Then they lost to Harvard. Now it’s fair to give that coveted (but somewhat meaningless) #1 spot to Loyola free and clear. After that, the rankings get a little more confusing… let’s see if they’re serious or not!

North Carolina vs Duke Rivalry week

Cornell is no longer the sole undefeated team in D1 after they dropped a decision to Harvard, 14-9, on their home field in Ithaca, NY. Cornell took leads of 1-0, 4-1, and 6-4, but Harvard fought back and tied it up each time. Harvard took the lead for the first time early in the third quarter to go up 7-6, and never looked back from there.
