This feels right:
Here are your three highlights for today:
- Furman at VMI: This may be Furman's best shot a win this season. The Paladins have really struggled to get anything going in their first run through Division I but showed signs of life against Richmond last week: Furman held a three goal lead at the start of the fourth quarter, eventually yielding seven goals to Spiders over the final 13:12 of play. This is a rock fight of the first order, but somebody has to win a rock fight, right?
- More Than Poll Implications: Three games today -- Maryland visiting Johns Hopkins; North Carolina traveling to Syracuse; and Cornell moving south to play Hofstra -- featured ranked teams squaring off against each other. These games, though, carry greater consequence than mere impact to the national polls: Hopkins is looking to round out their resume for potential NCAA Tournament participation; Maryland wants to build further momentum as it prepares for the ACC Tournament; North Carolina has a chance to cement itself into the ACC Tournament while Syracuse needs a win against the Tar Heels to avoid a spot in the league's showcase game; Cornell has a chance to rebound after falling to Syracuse earlier in the week; and Hofstra has an opportunity to bag a big kill in front of its home crowd. There are legitimate pursuits to these games and the results carry weight.
Michigan at Ohio State // Navy at Army: This, basically:
