As the first full team practices begin this week around the country for college lacrosse, I felt it was time to start the 2013 NCAA Lacrosse thread. Lacrosse is in the air folks, and this is the place to talk about news, scores, games, and players throughout the 2013 season. Starting next week, I will post a season preview here in this thread on each of the 6 local D1 teams.

To kick things off I thought it would be good to talk about which team is your favorite college lacrosse team and why?

If you build it they will come! More TV is good for the game IMO.

The game has made some rule changes now to cater to the fans new to watching the game.

A little off-topic... ESPN3 has really revolutionized college sports IMO. Just about every major sports game is televised in some form. Even Olympic sports such as lacrosse get more of their games featured. And the most obscure games, you can watch out-of-market.

Tom,
I'm a bit curious of your thoughts of the Big 10 move impact on MD lacrosse?

College Lacrosse doesn't have a BIG Ten conference. PSU is in the Colonial Conference. OSU and Michigan are in the ECAC conference. But adding Maryland is huge, if they intend on getting serious about lacrosse. The TV deal the BIG 10 has will also be a nice way to grow the game in the Midwest. Schools such as Marquette are now starting up lacrosse. But now you have Rutgers and MD coming to the BIG 10 which adds two more teams making it a formidable conference. Lets not forget with Maryland leaving, the ACC gains two powerhouses in college lacrosse and that is Syracuse and Notre Dame in the next 4 years.

I like the D3 games a little bit more, they tend to be more up tempo high scoring games.

D3 is really high tempo. Not much finesse.

The NCAA announced today that its going to lift the ban on college coaches being able to send text messages to recruits. The big question is how this will affect recruiting in Lacrosse? Which has run rampant as of late with colleges getting verbal commitments from high school sophomores and as of this past November a freshman commit.

Here is the article about the lifted ban as well as other rules bans being lifted.

The Maryland Terps Men's and Women's lacrosse teams are sitting atop of the D1 polls with 4-0 records. The men, beat ACC rival Duke today in Durham 16-7 to improve to 4-0 on the season. The ladies are also dismantling ACC foes as the Terps beat UVA Friday night 18-10. Maryland's Alex Aust had a 10 point game with 5 goals and 5 Assists.

All three Maryland teams are gone already; only Loyola made a game of it (versus Duke).

 

I saw some of UM getting destroyed on their own field. Gruesome....

Another disappointing end to the Terps season.

Ha ha. Yeah, SU has Stevenson in the semis this weekend. They lost to them at home, 10-8, back in early April. Not gonna be a cake walk.

I'm strongly considering going to watch this game now that Stevenson actually has a real stadium.  My dad and I saw a Salisbury-Stevenson playoff game up there a few years back and it stunk b/c there wasn't enough seating and we had to stand along the sidelines.  Couldn't see the entire field it was week.

Interesting. Yeah, I wish SU had some better seating conditions, too, but I don't know how often the stadium actually gets filled. Of course for War on the Shore/Homecoming football/Family Weekend football it's pretty much a lock, but when else? I'm glad they've prioritized academic facilities, but it would be nice to see Sea Gull Stadium get some upgrading - just not so much that it takes away from the intimate setting.
