Lacrosse the Internet: January 14, 2013

A woman eats a 72 oz. steak like a trash compactor, Desko likes his 2013 recruiting class, and more.

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

A Full Pint

Syracuse’s difficult ACC schedule lacks traditional matchups with Princeton, Army
I think most fans have accepted that conference realignment is going to have a continued impact on scheduling. This is the residue of trying to win a realignment game that doesn't have defined goalposts. For Syracuse, the Orange are feeling the scheduling pinch in just their first season in the ACC:

Games against Princeton and Army, which have become constants on the Orange’s calendar over the years, aren’t on the 2014 slate. And while SU head coach John Desko has plans to reinsert these games in the future, he said it was a sacrifice the team had to make.

“If you look at the schedule there really isn’t a breather on there,” Desko said at the team’s media day on Monday. “Not only did we add in some teams but we also added the ACC tournament.”

Army or Princeton could return to Syracuse's agenda when Maryland comes off of Orange's must-schedule list next season, but the void on the team's slate in 2014 where the Tigers and Black Knights used to be is still noticeable.

Watch a woman eat a 72 oz. steak in under 3 minutes
Don't start eating until you see the white of the rib eye!

Steak eating is usually defined by The Old 96'er from The Great Outdoors. If it's smaller than The Old 96'er, it's for children. 72 ounces of meat, though, isn't a lump of filet: That's four-and-a-half pounds of murder being shoved down your throat. For context, I ate a quarter-pound of burnt ends and a quarter-pound of brisket the other day from one of my favorite barbecue joints and felt like my stomach was starting a civil war against my intestines. I couldn't imagine eating 72 ounces of steak in less than three minutes.

I don't care what anybody says: This woman is an athlete. She's a ridiculous athlete that ascribes to a food pyramid for the criminally insane, but she's an athlete nonetheless.


Kerwick To Serve As Interim Head Coach For 2014 Men's Lacrosse Season
The last line of the release is the most important: Kerwick isn't guaranteed the Cornell job past 2014; the university is conducting a full search with on-campus interviews at the close of the season.

Syracuse men's lacrosse coach John Desko calls Class of 2013 the Orange's 'best in a while'
Most importantly for the Orange, they don't need to count on all of those newcomers to carry heavy loads this year.
