Lacrosse the Internet: March 23, 2013

It' Saturday. More like Lazyandwatchinglacrossebecauseworkisforknuckleheadsday, right?

This is obviously your favorite site, but other people actually write important stuff sometimes. Now is that sometimes.

Epp-Ic Thoughts: Week 6
Before I get started I have to apologize to everyone - all ten of you - who have been waiting on the latest edition of the blog. And by "apologize" I mean I got berated by several people this week because they were offended I hadn't written a blog in two weeks. Listen folks, I have to pass classes. And besides that, it's Spring Break 2013 in Highland Falls, N.Y. I was way too busy sleeping and doing other things far more interesting than writing blogs ... like reading about space and eating Bagel Bites. But that's the past ... let's move on to the topic of this week: goalies.

Springer back on his feet to help improved Binghamton
Junior Matt Springer is back contributing for the Binghamton men’s lacrosse team after having to red-shirt last year after two surgeries to repair an ailing foot.

Quint: Midseason Grades
It might be hard to believe, considering that it has yet to feel like spring for any extended period of time, but the men’s lacrosse season is already at the halfway point. No. 1 Maryland is in cruise control, Johns Hopkins has yet to beat a ranked team and defending champion Loyola is still seeking its mojo.

Behind the Scenes: Colgate
On a cold, blustery afternoon last Sunday in Flushing, N.Y., the Colgate captured their sixth victory of the year, this one against Michigan in the Metropolitan Lacrosse Classic. Inside Lacrosse got the best seat in the house for the day's festivities at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets - embedded with the Raiders.

Navy's Kiernan Aims to Lead by More Than Example
Pat Kiernan, Navy's do-it-all long-stick midfielder, plays wing on faceoffs and is a threat to score in transition. He acknowledged, however, that there is one area of his game that needs work: his voice.

UVA, Hopkins Seeking 'Signature Win' at Midpoint
Typically, when Johns Hopkins and Virginia do battle in late March, it marks a midseason confrontation between two lacrosse bluebloods beginning to position themselves for anticipated high seeds come NCAA tournament time.

Detroit Preview: VMI
So this is when the Titans will get their first win of the year. After a long break leading up to last week’s game against Marist, they seemed to play much better than they had been, and VMI is far and away the worst team in the country.

Youth Movement
The trajectory of Michigan’s season seems to be firmly in the upward direction. That’s a good thing (duh), and it’s happening on the backs of several young players. Due to a variety of reasons – among them injuries to upperclassmen – freshmen are making a huge impact on the 2013 Wolverines.

Face-offs Don't Matter?
This argument is short and sweet. Why would we have a position dedicated to face-off men if the face-off wasn’t just as important as other statistics? There are guys in our sport who make a living off being great face-off men. We wouldn’t dedicate a position entirely to face-off men if face-offs didn’t matter just as much as every other part of the sport.

Lacrosse Q&A: North Carolina attackman Marcus Holman
Each week, The Baltimore Sun publishes a Q&A with a college lacrosse player or coach to get you more acquainted with the player and his/her team. Today's guest is North Carolina senior attackman

Weak Start Cues Loss To Defending Champs
The Georgetown men’s lacrosse team (3-4, 1-0 Big East) emerged from halftime a stronger team on Wednesday night, outshooting and outscoring defending champion and No. 9 Loyola (6-2, 2-0 ECAC) after the break at MultiSport Facility.

Today's beats: Bishop Allen is about to happen.
