Nationwide Indiscretions: The PCLL D2

Today we’re heading north a bit to look at the MCLA’s Pioneer Collegiate Lacrosse League.  Did they test themselves with strong out of conference games?

Editor’s note: Catch up with the first installment of Nationwide Indiscretions and a look at the SELC

Let’s start things off.

Briarcliffe Seahawks

3/3 Brookdale
3/6 @ Army Club
3/10 @ Farmingdale
3/17 Plattsburgh St
3/20 @ American International
4/7 @ Chestnut Hill
4/21 @ Army Club
4/24 @ S Connecticut

Final Grade: F. I’ll give them a bit of credit for scheduling 8 non PCLL games, but none of them count for the MCLA minimum of 2 games for at-large consideration.

Central Connecticut St Blue Devils

4/7 S Connecticut
4/18 Quinnipiac

Final Grade:F. Two non-MCLA games.

Stonehill College

3/6 @ Palm Beach Atlantic
3/7 @ Georgia State @ PBA

Final Grade: C. They get credit for actually playing some true OOC games.

Coast Guard Bears

3/19 S Connecticut

Final Grade: F. Only one game. And it’s non MCLA.

New Haven Chargers

3/6 S Connecticut
4/21 @ S Connecticut

Final Grade: F. Playing the same team twice. And they’re non-MCLA.

Bridgewater State and Worcester Polytechnic get an F- for not scheduling anyone out side of the PCLL at all.

As a whole, I’ll give the conference a good solid F. The only team making an effort is Stonehill. Step it up PCLL.

Next time, we’ll take a look in 412 land, the CCLA.

Also on the agenda, we’ll be taking a behind the scenes look at the UNCG program every week to give you an idea of how a team goes from nothing to hopefully joining the MCLA.


  • My Minnesota Vikings BEAT the Dallas Cowboys this weekend.  If you cheered for the Cowboys, I don’t like you.
  • #4 rules all.
  • One week left of winter break. Really need to start working out again.
  • Can’t wait for practice to resume, too
  • Carroll to Seattle, McGwire did steroids. Give me some real sports news.
