|6 days 14 hours ago||Lewis||
I think where Lewis could struggle is in run support, although I wasn't specifically watching him when we ran, since I wanted to see the Oline. He's still pretty small for a corner. Peppers on the other hand is a beast, so where his coverage and defensive knowledge could lag Lewis, he might be better in run support and so might be out there more on first and second down as opposed to maybe just 3rd and long.
Lewis sure looked fantastic though in coverage.

Not so fast my friend. I believe michigan could lose all their games, and if Fairfield loses to everyone but michigan, we would be in a 3 way tie. Unlikely, but still a possibility. If the tie breaker was goal differential, I wouldn't like our chances as our win was only by 1 goal.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Good game||
I saw the game, and was impressed. Maryland looked like a final 4 type team, and Michigan played them tough. The defense looked great, and so did Schlosser.
I would say Lott is the MVP right now if I had to choose. Lott is really doing it by himself for the most part, and against some of the top face off guys in the country. I think he has a chance to get first team all ECAC, which would be a Michigan first.
|5 weeks 5 hours ago||OSU||
OSU will certainly be tough, but we get them at home, and they are really struggling with face offs. With Lott playing well, if we get them on a good day, it's certainly possible we give them a game.
They are definitely better than a 1-5 record indicates.

Saban probably called Nuss to save him from having to cut the kid. /s
|5 weeks 7 hours ago||3 way||
It would have to be a 3 way tie with bellarmine and one of OSU or Fairfield. Those 2 teams still have to play each other, so it would also have to be with the loser of that game, and bellarmine would have to beat that loser as well. Will be unlikely.
|5 weeks 8 hours ago||10||
I believe I counted 10 different wolverines with goals. Only paras had more than 1(2).
|5 weeks 8 hours ago||Bellarmine||
They already lost to michigan and Air Force, with the top 2 teams in the conference left. They lose tiebreakers with Michigan and AF, so they need to beat both of the top 2 teams in conference to not be in last. Not impossible but not likely.
|5 weeks 10 hours ago||great effort||
Wow. What a win for Michigan. Basically guarantees they will make the conference tournament.
MVP has got to be Lott for this game. Wins 21 of 24 face offs, including in OT. He'll easily win conference specialist of the week.
Defense played fairly well. Not a lot of easy things for Bellarmine, and buckled down in crunch time. Offense was also very balanced. Only Paras had more than 1 goal. A road conference victory against a pretty good team, and a stout defensive team is a great sign.
This team had 2 goals for the year. Beat OSU (obviously), and make the post season. Looks like one is locked up. People also thought 4 wins for this team would be optimistic. We're basically halfway through the year and they've met those expectations.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Rest of the schedule||
I think we've also got a chance to get to 5 or more wins this year. We should be favored against HPU, Furman and St. joes, and should have a chance against Bellarmine and Robert Morris. Maybe even Air Force if we catch them on an off day, but I feel like they match up poorly for us. The rest of our schedule is a good Fairfield team and a bunch of NCAA tournament regulars.
Would certainly take some luck and we'd have to avoid injuries, but it's possible if this team keeps getting better as the year goes on.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Exciting||
What an exciting game. I was literally shaking when we went to overtime, just as I was during under the lights 1.
By the way, I think in all 4 program wins, we scored double digits. 14 against Mercer, 11 against St Joes, 20 against Mercer and now 14 against UDM.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Great win||
What a great win for this team. They have definitely taken a step forward from last year. They are still very young and prone to mistakes and mental lapses, but when they were on, they were able to impose their will.
Brad Lott should get the game ball. He was completely dominant on face offs. UDM just had to put a long pole out there and hope to win the ground ball. He was also dominant in the 4th and overtime, when it really counted.
One guy I was disappointed in was Kyle Jackson, right until the 4th quarter. For a while, it looked like he was just content to pass off the ball to his teammates, and wasn't being aggressive. That was the same fault I had as a player, so maybe I was being too critical. Thankfully though, when the game was on the line, he took control, and netted a hat trick. With the game on the line, you want your best players to step up, and he certainly did tonight, along with a few others.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Great win||
Exceeded my expectations and that should really help this team with their confidence. They needed a win, and got a convincing one.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||No way||
No way he keeps that offer if dantonio sees this. After the season they had they won't have any trouble getting a QB, and won't need to deal with this kind of thing. Compared to the Carlos Hyde video this looks way worse.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Underclassmen||
On the bright side, the big ten keeping upperclassmen around while other leagues lose them could help the B1G close the gap on the field.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah||
Yeah, and with a 4.3 GPA. Very impressive.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Ash||
Arkansas was pretty poor, but I think Mattison would have been able to do better than 89th in the country in points against with that talent considering the turn-around he had with the 2011 Defense. I am definitely not sold on Ash.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Logan||
Gerald was a very solid goalie, and losing him adds a lot more question marks for the team. I've heard good things about Zonino, so I guess we'll see how he does now.
I also wonder how a goalie would get an injury like that. I remember last year against Bellarmine he came out to check an attackman on a break and came away with a bum shoulder that did not look good.
Good luck on the recovery Gerald!
|15 weeks 5 days ago||B.O.B.||
Saturday after the rumors came out, B.O.B. supposedly talked with some of his recruits heading to the UA all american game and told them he wasn't going anywhere and what was in the news was just made up. I don't remember his exact words, but it came secondhand from TomVH.
If true, I'd feel bad for those kids being lied to, although B.O.B. was really in a tough spot.
Also tough luck for Penn State.

I know that freshman lacrosse players had to take media training during their first few weeks on campus, learning how to talk to reporters and learning about building their personal brand for how they want to be known. I'm sure the football guys are even more prepared and likely practiced.

Charlie Weis. Schematic advantage for the win!
|24 weeks 2 days ago||B1G Lax||
B1G Lax starts in 2015. This spring they are still in the ECAC.
In addition to the above and the ECAC teams, I heard a rumor Maryland was making a trip to the big house and we would play all but one of the future B1G lax teams. Hoping that comes true.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||This huge||
This is a huge get for JP. In 2016 JP has 2 of the top 12 recruits locked up. One attack and one middie. Generally those top 10-ish kids only go to ACC schools, and for JP to get 2 in one year, for a team that only has 2 wins ever is huge. It'll probably be 2018 or so before these top kids really have a shot at reaching their potential (which seems like forever), but I'm excited already.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||Henry Adams||
Jamie Munro (who used to be the Denver coach) was raving about this kid earlier this week. He plays for a powerhouse program and looks very good. His highlights looked a bit like summer ball to me (cause it was), as a lot of defenders were playing with flat feet, etc., but there is no question the kid has some serious skills. His hand/eye coordination is great and he can catch the ball at crazy angles near the crease and get off a quick shot on cage. Would love to see him in some non-summer league games playing at full speed.
Regardless though, this is a huge pickup for JP. I've said all along that the hardest thing to recruit for him will be elite attack, and a top 10 recruit at attack can do wonders for a program. One Peter Baum, Mark Matthews or even Logan Schuss type could really elevate the team quickly.

Is that guy going fly fishing again and Saban is worried that his players will miss practice to go with him?
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Beard||
According to the CTK video Miller and Heitzman both have camp beards.
|37 weeks 2 days ago||Nice||
Looks like a quite a few challenging games, but a few winnable games as well. Florida, Northwestern and Hopkins all in a row is one tough 3 game stretch for a new team.
|37 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks||
Thanks for posting this. Heidt won best goalie and Young is a middie I've heard about before. Those two positions seem to be where our recruiting excelled in our first class with Jackson, Hernandez and Logan.
A top attackman will be tough to come by for a new program, but I'm hoping we can land some stud defenders soon. Putting a decent defense in front of Logan will really help this team improve quickly.

Already got a couple #27 jerseys! I have been waiting for someone to breakthrough with that number since Calvin Bell.

I guess I don't know enough about the specific rules, but if he stayed enrolled at the university, would that cause an APR hit as well? Doesn't seem all that different to someone who blows out their knee and chooses to stay in school and get their degree. Those don't seem like "academic" issues that should cause a hit to the APR to me.
