    Annoyed that I’m not able to watch any of the b1g10 games today but sounds like there were some good ones

    Really just tells you a lot how narrow the gap in All-American level talent in D3 and the overall talent pool in D1 is in lacrosse compared to other sports with Kevin Rogers being the leading goal scorer for a top-20 D1 team after being a D3 All-American.

    There's very little chance the first-team All-American players in like football and basketball would step up to D1 and immediately be one of the top players for a top-25 team. Hell, they likely wouldn't even be recruited by those programs. Duncan Robinson is probably the best example we have, wasn't an All-American because he only played one year at D3 and it's exceedingly rare for a D3 freshman to be an All-American, but he went to Michigan, sat out the required year, and was merely a solid role player. Guy would have been a multi-time All-American had he stayed in D3 and probably a contender for National Player of the Year eventually.

    yeah there's always been some really good players/teams at the d3 level (too many good players and not enough d1 teams). it's fun seeing those guys jump up levels and still have great success and proof positive that there's some great lax at the lower levels. i remember when i was coming out of high school and got some looks at some d3 schools - i was never not going to d1 school (and not playing lax) but it was an eye opener just how good the play was (even at that time).

    Yeah Salisbury waxed Drexel 13-5 in a scrimmage, and Salisbury isn’t the juggernaut behemoth we thought they were going to be after losing to Lynchburg 10-8. But both Lynchburg and Salisbury are great teams though.

    I know a few years ago Lynchburg had their best player transfer to UVA and i think he was a starter there or a regular contributor off the bench.

    Actually looks like UVA probably put Joe Lisicky at LSM because he was third on the team in caused turnovers and fourth in GBs for non-FOGOs, a backup close defender wouldn’t get enough PT to do that.

    Denver beat Georgetown today 13-7. A big victory for Denver over what had been a great Georgetown team to start the year

    Welcome. This is, unfortunately for you, the only place in the world Rutgers is better than you at this moment in time. Feel free to look around but don’t feel forced to stay if you’re not enjoying your time

    ACC lacrosse has been absoultely incredible. thought we'd lose all 3 acc games we've played we've gone 2-1. thought uva would struggle after they got destroyed at syracuse, they've been the 2nd best team in the country. thought duke would roll, that offense that stalled. all 5 teams can make it to memorial day
