Longtime (22 years!) Princeton Men’s Lacrosse Coach, Bill Tierney, is leaving Princeton to take over the reins at Denver. I looked at some of the lax.com comments and people seemed to be VERY confused as to why this would happen but when you look a little bit deeper, the move starts to make a lot of sense for pretty much everyone involved.
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.
If you are a high school lacrosse player or parent then this is the podcast for you. Chris Meade, CEO of LacrosseRecruits.com, stopped by our HQ for a lively discussion of the recruiting process and how to get your name in front of college coaches.
In light of the firing of Head Coach Jason Lamb, Mike DeWan (dtrain34 on the CollegeLAX Forums), Head Coach of University of San Diego and Vice-President of the Southwestern Lacrosse Conference, has asked that everyone in the MCLA community send a note to the President of BYU. Details after the jump.
LAXALLSTARS BREAKING NEWS:
Just heard from our RMLC sources that Jason Lamb, storied head coach and program manager of the 3 time National Champion (97, 00, 07) and 8 time RMLC Champion BYU Cougars has been released.
This past weekend at Gillette Stadium I was able to witness one of the greatest games I’ve ever seen in sports. (Followed by the Magic’s huge win last night at the ORENA, of course.)
I’ve been in a number of heated discussions with baseball players regarding which spring sport is more legitimate (whatever that means), but I think the following video makes that argument obsolete. Baseball players, you have officially lost.
Look at the sidelines of a lacrosse game today and you will see an interesting phenomenon that for years was only a staple of that other spring sport, baseball: good athletes standing around…doing nothing.
It’s Memorial Day Weekend and that can mean only one thing…the biggest lacrosse weekend of them all has finally arrived. Who’s going to take home the hardware at Gillette Stadium? Cvas is at the event and is going give you the inside scoop with live tweets.
Question: When will lacrosse stop being new? I can’t count the number of times I’ve run in to “Check out the new thing all the kids are doing” style article about the oldest sport in the country.
Mick MacLaverty is a machine. 4 sports in high school and one of them was squash?! When I read his bio I was undeniably impressed. Now he can add one more specialty to the list: Parody. I think…
It has been a pastime of mine (albeit a lame one) to look through game pictures on lax.com and look for illegal sticks or other procedural violations and from time to time I have commented on Duke’s Max Quinzani propensity to thumb the ball when it is in his stick and he is carrying the ball or dodging. A player is not actually allowed to touch the plastic of the head at all, so even if he isn’t touching the ball, it is still a possible advantage and therefore illegal.
In case you missed it during the Syracuse romp over Maryland, Terps Goalie Brian Phipps was so hopping mad after a non-call by the refs that he ripped his ACL in two. I guess that’s one way to show ‘em, Brian! Swallow sadness…Like A Boss

Just like we promised, Joenanadez is reporting LIVE from the MCLA tournament and LacrosseAllStars is changing the way you follow the games. Tired of having to wander the web aimlessly for the latest content? Don’t feel like the live game blogs give you the real Colorado experience?
First let’s recap the action in Denver: the MCLA tournament features day after day of high quality lacrosse and results in a true champion that has been tested by the best teams over a grueling 5 day schedule of games. Teams that had a couple of guys do most of the work tend to fall to the wayside as depth, teamwork and conditioning become bigger factors.

Editor’s Note: While there have been some high profile stories of NCAA lacrosse players in Iraq, there had only been one other mention in the news of an MCLA player overseas (Conner Zwinggi from Oklahoma). LacrosseAllStars would like to introduce you to Zack Porter. Zack is in Iraq right now, and his lacrosse career has been put on hold while he serves his Country.
With tournament action ready to kick off in the MCLA, lets take a look at some of the lower seeded teams who are heading to Denver trying to shock the world. These teams are faced with seemingly insurmountable odds on their quest for lacrosse glory. Stranger things have happened in the wide wold of sports so throw down that mop and broom, Cinderella, it’s time ball it up.
