This is not your fathers lacrosse, the sport has really expanded. Drew Snider is actually from Seattle Wash. The Terps do have a couple of players from Florida. The player from Colgate that destroyed us a couple of weeks ago was from Portland Ore. Long Island and Maryland are still the hot beds of lacrosse however the best prep teams in Baltimore the last couple of years have been beaten by Philly schools.
Goren Murray was ACC FOY which is highly unusual for a defensive player.
For such a time as this.
shut up dick bag!
The class from the year before was rated #3. It's strange that the top rated player in that class (Ikeda) has been injured and contributed nothing, so far. In this year's class, the three most highly ranked players have not done much (Solomon, Gribbin, Forster). Lower ranked freshmen players have made the more significant contributions this year. Murray, LoCascio, Carlson, and Raffa have all done well, with Murray being really impressive. Next year's class is not going to be all that special. We recently lost a couple of guys from that class. I think that they looked at a lack of playing time and decided to go elsewhere, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It's just one of those things that will hurt our recruiting ranking for next year's class. The class of high school juniors looks to be the most impressive that I can ever remember. We have three top ten recruits, including the number one recruit in the country. Looking out even further, we have 2 of the top 20 sophomore commitments. I'm not sure how excited to get about that. A lot of things can change in the next few years. Overall, it seems like the future is very bright. The only school that really seems to be recruiting better than us is North Carolina. Hopefully, that will change soon given that Carolina does not win in the NCAA tourney and we are heading to our 2nd straight final four. It's great to know that half of our starters are sophomores and/or freshmen (I'm including Chanenchuk as a sophomore based on what I have read) and that this was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
Thanks. 39 years!
That was Urso's freshman year wasn't it?
Yep. Never did I think, when Urso graduated in 1976 with two titles, that I'd be sitting here today not having celebrated another since then....
Call me a relic, call me what you will,
Say I'm old-fashioned, say I'm over the hill....
That makes two of us. We just don't seem to be able to build off of success. Maybe Tillman will be different and I hope he is because with so many schools now playing lacrosse across the entire country now, it's only going to get tougher.
I actually think it will get easier for the Terps. Now there's a lot more good players to choose from after all the local private school kids named Steele, Wells, Snootie and Hootie choose UVA, Duke and Hopkins.
About as frequently as the Terps getting back to back goals from players from Washington. That would be the state, not the thing inside 495.
SUCK IT CAVS! GO IRISH GO!

For as much as I hate UVa, I hate the Irish geometrically more.
If we lose to Duke in the Final 4 one year after losing to UVA in the Championship.....
