If OSU wins a lacrosse title before us does that mean

that we have a coaching problem?


No. It means they stayed healthy and had some breaks

go there way.

No one was citing OSU as being this great program last year when they went 7-8 with basically the same team.

ND doesn't have a coaching problem. Think about this. I'd take him over Petro in a minute.


If they were 7-8 and are now 15-4 with the same team

Isn't that the result of good coaching?


They lost to us worse this year than last

So too many factors to attribute to just one thing.

Also, their leading scorer this year - LeClaire - was a freshman. 45 goals and 14 assists.


LeClair is the almost the same team. The freshman class

this year - through out DI and especially on the offensive side of the ball was really good.


Also you could argue ND has had little problem head to head

with OSU
2014 Won 13-7
2015 Won 9-0
2016 Won 9-8 (close game)
2117 Won 12-7 (after OSU had just smoked our nemesis, Denver)

Like steelhop says, it takes a little luck and lack of injuries. I'm not sure Corrigan is the best coach, but the top guys - Tierney, Danowsky, and you might argue Desko - are not leaving where they are so you are probably not going to find anyone better. Take away the injuries and give us a FOGO at 60% and we would probably still be playing and odds on favorite.


We've definitely dominated OSU

Which is why it will be annoying if they win a lacrosse title before we do.
