#LMRanks DI Men's Preview: No. 1 Denver
With three NCAA semifinal appearances in the last four years, the Pioneers have been knocking on the door of becoming the a historic first western team to win a Division I men's national title. But coach Bill Tierney, who knows a bit about what it's like to hoist the trophy on Memorial Day from his days at Princeton, and Matt Brown, his assistant and offensive coordinator for Canada's gold medal team in Denver last summer, have more tools than ever with a tremendously talented lineup in the Mile High City.

#LMRanks DI Men's Preview: No. 2 Notre Dame
With show-stopping offensive stars and a defensive system that routinely plugs new players in with outstanding results, Notre Dame is easily one of the top teams in the nation as 2015 gets underway. Twice the Irish have gone all the way to the NCAA finals, but twice Duke has gotten the better of them. Will this be the year for the Irish?

#LMRanks DI Men's Preview: No. 3 Duke
With three NCAA crowns in five years, is it time to start discussing John Danowski's Duke teams as a dynastic cycle like Princeton in the late 1990s or Cornell in the late 1970s? Perhaps. But what happens on the field this spring will color that discussion greatly, as the Blue Devils lost a ton of talent to graduation, but return a new set of budding stars like Myles Jones and Deemer Class to take over the reigns. The ACC lost Maryland as its sixth team, but is still arguably the toughest conference from top-to-bottom, so look for Duke to face plenty of tough tests throughout the season. Can they come through to Memorial Day once again?

College Lacrosse Conference Preview: Big East
The Big East men’s lacrosse conference should be rock solid this year, as the conference is home to a national title contender and a couple of other programs well positioned to make a jump in the NCAA D1 men’s lacrosse landscape. Rutgers has departed from the conference and joined the Big Ten, but there are still teams in the Big East and that means there is a highly coveted AQ bid on the line!
