    2019 OOC opponents

    There's a chance we could get Florida twice in less than a 10-day span. Good for the strength of schedule.

    Struggling to find words

    As Spiro called the final play and it got to 7 seconds, I’m like ‘just take a penalty’. Can’t let their best player even have a sniff of a chance. Unfortunately, this is what we do with lacrosse - can’t put games away. Drexel, Duke, Denver, Ohio State in the Final Four a couple years ago. Gotta play to win and stop this ‘play it safe’ business.

    Struggling to find words

    I have some words - stop playing the f’ing clock game!!! I know you have to kill most of that time but get into something with more than 15 on the shot clock. Just like a basketball team playing for one but the point guard pounds the ball and chucks a 30-footer. We nearly got burned last week. We did get burned today. And it’s capped off by a damn turnover in OT. At least get a shot in overtime and then you can say you tried.

    Future opponents

    I'd also prefer to play them in week 0 or week 1 since it really doesn't matter what our skill level is coming out of the summer, we're gonna get whacked anyway. A lot depends on when those 1-A opponents have spots available. In Florida's case, they always play Tennessee the 3rd week of September to open SEC play and usually have at least one cupcake in the first two weeks of the season. But this year, they got into a week 0 game against Miami in Orlando and the SEC saddled them with another conference game during week 2. So we're the sandwich game between a home game vs. the Vols and a home game vs. Auburn.

    Tigers are CAA Champions!

    Beating Delaware and Drexel to win a championship is like having Halloween and Easter on back-to-back days as a kid. Those Game of Thrones characters could take some lessons from us on how to slay a dragon. Hopefully we play on Saturday cuz I'll be on a flight Sunday afternoon during when gametime would likely be.

    https://towsontigers.com/news/2019/5/2/records-abound-as-mens-lacrosse-advances-to-caa-title-game.aspx SUCK IT, CHICKENS!!! McNallen gets my MVP vote for the way he DOMINATED the X tonite. We seemed to be having trouble the last couple of games with Woodall out and this kid stepped in and just tore it up. We get the same performance on Saturday from him and I'll feel pretty good about our chances. I thought the turning point in the game was getting the 3-2 goal from the other side of midfield. Why the F would Delaware set up their goalie to play a pass and leave the net wide open? Yeah, it's a bit of a stretch to think someone could hit it but at that point in the game, we were scuffling on offense and that goal sort of opened things up for us a bit, leading to a 3-0 run. 3rd quarter was total domination and the kind of thing that you love to see when in a close situation. Now let's go kick some Dragon ass on Saturday.

    MLax edges Drexel in finale, 11-9

    Game's a lot different when you're not winning 75%+ of the faceoffs. But a key win right after that 10-9 goal to get another one real quick to extend the cushion. Definitely gonna need Woodall back for Thursday night. So here's a question that bothered me at the end of the game -- when the other team pulls the goalie, why don't we look to go towards the empty net? Rather than messing around BEHIND the net, how about driving you man to the net and getting a freebie? Instead, we gave the ball up with 30 seconds left up by 2 and who knows what can happen in that situation.

    National Champs!?!?!

    If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball. Does the banner hang in SECU or Burdick?

    In other CAA news

    The team of Brantley, Cacok, Pusica, and Wright-Foreman won the college 3 on 3 championship for $100,000 in Minneapolis on Sunday. Wright-Foreman threw in a number of stupid 3s in the corner. That’s a rather formidable team to go against.

    MLax crushes Fairfield, 14-7

    Nice to see them get out to that 5-0 start once they got the cobwebs out in the first 8-9 minutes. Didn't allow an inferior team to hang around too long.

    https://towsontigers.com/news/2019/3/30/mens-lacrosse-mid-game-surge-pushes-no-10-towson-past-hofstra.aspx Wasn't pretty but we'll take the win. Still way too many sloppy turnovers and the Hofstra goalie played really well. Fortunately, our defense woke up in the 2nd half and kept Hofstra at bay for most of the final 30 minutes. But there's still a lot to improve upon.

    Mlax falls to No.13 Denver, 7-6

    The turnovers in the last 2 games I’ve watched (today and Cornell) are maddening. This stuff wasn’t going on the first few games of the year. We threw away so many possessions in the first half and even got a shot clock violation. It’s like we’ve taken a couple steps back after ascending the mountain.

    We might get our ears kicked in tomorrow night but I think playing UCONN in this first Tourney game will do more for this program than if we were playing really anyone else in the women's game.

    I got in on the show after they had revealed Albany so as they're going thru all the rest of the regions (and they didn't have the ticker going) and not seeing us, I'm thinking that it would be weird to be the last team to be revealed but I wouldn't want to play Oregon. And then the ticker comes up and I see UCONN. Nice reward for making your first-ever Dance. But hey, stranger things have happened.
