    Lacrosse 2019

    Welp. Might as well dust this baby off for another year.

    Strange first weekend. Orangmen, Hopkins and Duke all get beat. Folks are focusing on the shot clock, but I think there is just so much HS talent - the big programs just canít vacuum it all up anymore.
    Charlie, here comes the deuce. And when you speak of me, speak well.

    Got a random angry text from my lacrosse-nut brother Saturday that college lax was unwatchable now because they don't show the shot clock on screen so you can't tell what's going on, but I haven't seen a game yet this year. But hopefully they fix that, it's an easy fix I'd have to think.

    As I do every year I want to rant about lax starting in February just so they can have a Memorial Day tournament, which is stupid imo. Why Memorial Day? They say it's because the kids get out of school then but college baseball goes another month at least and that doesn't seem to bother anybody.

    Terps 2-0 but got a scare from Richmond at home - Richmond didn't win a game like 4 years ago. I think you'll see the powers be there at the end of the season but no doubt there's a lot more talent available - it's been obvious that when California and Florida got into it the scene was going to change drastically and that's happening now, the biggest holdup is the scarcity of good coaches and refereees, which is real.

    Shame Laxpower went down - that was so stupid. They had a good site, decided to try to monetize it and killed it. There's room for a good lax site out there for sure, Inside Lacrosse sucks.

    Should be a fun season, lots of change in the air, it won't be boring.

    The way some of these kids play is almost like magic.

    A Colgate player scored from about 10 yards out, stick side high - possible the hardest shot I have ever seen. The goalie couldnít even move his stick 3 inches to save it. Unreal.

    Itís funny you mention lax power because I absentmindedly tried to go to the website about three times on Saturday to see what some of the reactions to the games were.

    High Point once again goes elephant hunting and comes out with a W over the wahoos.

    Their goalie is unreal.

    They're kind of giant killers aren't they? Looking at their schedule it looks like they've already played their hardest games, they could go somewhere. That place is supposed to be pretty awesome as far as the campus, facilities and support, not sure about academically though.

    Loyola's off to a good start. Hopkins has issues it seems.

    I donít think Petro makes it through the season. Carolina, Princeton, Syracuse up next. They could be 0-5.

    I have absolutely no way to prove this, but I think early recruiting is starting to take its toll on a few teams. Locking a whole class up by the end of sophomore year is no bueno.

    I would be amazed if Petro doesn't get through the season but I doubt he'll be back if there aren't major changes.

    The early recruiting thing changed significantly in 2017, Now college coaches can't be in touch with kids until the fall of their junior year, so no more of the freshmen/sophomore commits. I do agree that schools paid a price for it and continue to do so, Hop is a prime example imo.
