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.
College Lacrosse news and commentary featuring NCAA Division 1, Division 2, Division 3, the MCLA and the NCLL. This is your one-stop shop for college lax news and information.
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.
If you don’t love a good hidden ball trick, there might be something wrong with you. Go see a stick doctor immediately. ASA College pulled off the old hidden ball trick this year, and we found video. It’s an exciting time!
It’s Loyola’s first year in the Patriot League, and they’ve already secured the #1 seed and right to host the semifinals and finals for the league this postseason. Their latest W came over first year program Boston University. 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.
Over 10,000 fans made their way to Michie Stadium for the annual Army-Navy game, and Army came out on top at home, winning 14-7, and upping their record to 8-3. Army now sits in second behind Loyola for the Patriot League. Navy drops to 4-7 overall with the loss.
Our fourth Club Directors Panel presented a bit of a challenge for our participants, because we asked about attitudes of those associated with off-season lacrosse. By no means are we being accusatory of our panel, but as the scene continues to evolve, we are simply wondering what they’re experiencing from their side of the table.
Some refer to it as the Greatest Rivalry in all of sports, in the Midwest and in much of the rest of the country you hear it called The Game. In the sporting world, everyone respects the historic rivalry between The Ohio State University Buckeyes and the University of Michigan Wolverines.
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!
Welcome to another installment of The JuCo Report! I’m running through all the big games, video, photos, and stories from the world of NJCAA lacrosse. It’s the one place where NJCAA lacrosse really gets the respect it deserves!
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!
