It will probably be PSU. Played a slightly tougher schedule.


16-7 final -- looks like ND will return to No. 1

Our next opponent is Ohio State on Saturday, at Arlotta. Denver lost in the Horsesh**. It was 16-4 at one point. Remarkably, this was Denver's first road match of the season.


Rutgers #1, ND #2, PSU #3, OSU #4

So now the Big10 is the best Lax conference? I know, it's early in the season.


Not sure about Big Ten teams

They have gaudy records, but other than OSU-Denver (which was a big win), they generally haven't played tough schedules.

Either way, there's a notable shift to traditional D-1 football schools (ND, OSU, PSU, Michigan) going on where the local talent pool isn't very big.

Interesting if just a blip or more of a bigger trend as lacrosse continues to grow beyond NY and MD and more traditional D-1 schools get in the game.


And their top 3 don't include Maryland and Hopkins-strange *

Rutgers? Bizarre

I had no idea beating a winless NJIT team carried so much weight.


Not sure about that

Pollsters might elect to just put one of the undefeated teams #1 and let things sort themselves out. Penn State , Rutgers , Hofstra, and Ohio State (if they hold on) are all undefeated .


OSU entered today's game at No. 17

Yes, they "held on" to their 9-goal lead, but I seriously doubt they'll leapfrog No. 2 ND, at least not before we play them on Saturday. PSU (3), Rutgers (5), and Hofstra (7) have better shots -- especially PSU, which got more first-place votes than ND did in the last poll (8-2). Then again, ND's schedule has been far tougher than any of those of the unbeaten teams. PSU just squeaked by 2-5 Fairfield, 9-8, while Rutgers beat winless NJIT, 10-5.


We will have our hands full with OSU

Their defense looked very solid against DU - CC could not beat his man 1 on 1. The defense didn't need to slide very often, their goalie played well and they were great in GBs and clearing. Their O played well (Denver's D was very undisciplined) and shot very efficiently. Nick Meyers is a very good coach.

Doss is going to have to play well and we will need to find someone on O to force them to slide...perhaps Gleason.

I predict another 1 goal game for the Irish, 9-8, ND.
