They could become a contender under him.
said Tierney lost 5 out of 6 games to him while Tierney was back at Princeton and Tambroni was at Cornell. And Tambroni beat him, yesterday, again. He certainly seems like the real deal. Should be quite the contest for us, but let's hope we handle it well.
to be closer to his family, build a new tradition, be the Hopkins of the West...I think deep down it was because he realize he wasn't going to be the top dawg in the Ivy League anymore. For 15 years, the Ivy league was essentially Princeton and then everyone else.
since I have been living here in Denver since 2009, I've actually seen quite a bit of Denver lacrosse. Tierney seems like a jackass on the sidelines to me. He reminds me a lot of Harbaugh. I've always wondered if he'd worn out his welcome at Princeton. I didn't follow him at all while he was there, I have never met him, nor have I heard anyone talk about him. His results, obviously, are unquestionable. But I was just wondering if he might have had a similar situation to Bobby Knight or not. Again, no basis whatsoever for wondering that, so it would be great to hear from anyone in the know.
I have no idea if they played a part in his leaving Princeton but he is not one of the most loved guys in the lax world.
Another rumor on Tierney was that when Tony Seaman was given his walking papers at Hopkins in the late 90's, Tierney was told not even to bother interviewing. Tierney was an assistant at Hopkins before taking the job at Princeton. Bob Scott (the former HC of Hopkins lacrosse for 20 years of so) hated him and his sideline antics, even though there was a big push by some big money Hopkins donors that wanted a return to glory and thought Tierney would be the man (he would be). It was about 10 years since Hopkins last NCAA title.
He's probably the 2nd best goalie in the country. I expect us to put up more than two goals this year though.
