The Game, The Greatest Rivalry in College Lacrosse, call it what you want but the Maryland vs. Johns Hopkins rivalry is serious. Learn more about the War for the Old Line State.
The fancy stuff didn’t start with the Thompsons, although they have taken things to a whole new level of consistency and flair… remember the greats! Brendan Carey is one of them! Photo of the oldest backbreaker in college history!
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?
Welcome back to another great installment of The D3 Report! We’ve got a ton of great info, some fantastic video, and an update on where we stand in the giant world that is D3 men’s NCAA lacrosse!
We’re moving along with the NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse rivalries, highlighting the historic matchup between the Syracuse Orange and the Virginia Cavaliers.
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.
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!
One of the most famous rivalries in all of college sports takes place inside the state of North Carolina. Neighbors, Duke University and the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill are two schools who just don’t get along, on or off the field.
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!
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.
Plenty of great college action means tons of quality video. We scour the internet for good stuff, and drop it all in one convenient place, for your viewing pleasure. Get caught up, get inspired… get your daily dose of lacrosse!
Loyola travelled to Annapolis to take on the Navy Midshipmen on Saturday, and the Hounds emerged with a hard tough 7-6 Patriot League win, but it took two overtime periods to decide the winner. Both keepers saw some serious heat, and we’re rewarding them in GIF format for their excellent efforts.
The Thompson Trio is certainly well-known in the lacrosse world at this point. But are they the most exciting players since Mike Powell donned #22 at Syracuse? Kyle Harrison seems to think so!
Welcome back to another crazy installment of the D3 Report! This season has been chock full of upsets, surprise teams, and quick Top 20 risers. More established programs are losing games to teams they would have beaten by 10 or more only a few years ago. Parity? Do we know that word? By now, we should!
Now that almost every D1 college lacrosse team has played at least seven or eight games we can start to question the polls once again. Forget about what’s on paper… how are these teams TRULY fairing, and where should they be ranked? It’s time to break down the USILA Top 20 Poll!
