Lacrosse the Internet: January 31, 2013

The word in Richmond is "potential," Jim Marlatt is looking toward a great 2014, and 40,000 other things.

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

A Full Pint

Potential is the buzzword around UR lacrosse
It isn't going to be pretty for the Spiders this year, but the team seems to have the right attitude entering their first season of Division I play. The road for Richmond this season is going to have lots of bumps, but everything appears appropriately considered at this stage in the game:

The Spiders’ potential intrigues Dan Chemotti, the UR lacrosse coach who knows well that a relatively small, private school can become a national contender. Before his arrival at Richmond, Chemotti was the offensive coordinator at Loyola, which won the 2012 national title. He played at Duke, another elite program.

“I’m optimistic that could certainly happen (at UR),” said Chemotti, 34. “We’re a ways away from that day, that’s for sure. I certainly would hope to still be here when that day happens.”

Marlatt overcomes injuries to excel
If you're a fan of the Irish, Marlatt is saying all the right things ahead of Notre Dame's season:

“The most important thing for us is that we try to get better every day,” Marlatt said. “Obviously you want to win every game and win championships, but if you focus on getting better each and every day those things tend to fall in place. That’s something I’ve been trying to do since I got here and something our team does really well.”

Marlatt said, in addition to bringing Notre Dame its first ACC and NCAA championship, he wants to be certain he imparts two simple lessons to the younger players on the Irish squad before he leaves.

“It’s cliché, but just have fun,” Marlatt said. “We’ve got a lot of players on this team and not everyone can see the field. Division I lacrosse can be a very stressful experience at a tough academic school, so just being thankful for the opportunity to play is important, too, because it goes by quick.
