Maryland men's lacrosse: Tillman speaks. Todd listens.
It's the second edition of Todd's Take where we have a little fun with Maryland men's lacrosse coach John Tillman's post game press conference and, we hope, provide insight along the way. This week's post features bonus quotes from Matt Dunn.

McEwen FOGO Ratings: Week 4
The big change at the top of this week’s ratings comes from the inclusion of Cornell’s Domenic Massimilian in the ratings. He makes his debut in fourth.

Reaction: Navy 8, No. 15 Towson 7 (3OT)
In a men's lacrosse game between No. 15 Towson and Navy beset by a chilly rain, 39 combined turnovers and just 15 goals on 69 shots, perhaps it's fitting that the matchup ended on a broken play.

Lambrecht: Signs of Life in Early Season for Navy
If this early-season, sign of life proves to be a hint of things to come in Annapolis, where Navy has been starved for success since slipping late in the Richie Meade era, the men's lacrosse team probably will point to a cold, dreary afternoon in early March as the day the Midshipmen truly began to regenerate.

Ivy Power Rankings: The Zach Currier Bandwagon
I hate the overuse of the word. According to ESPN and others, Cornell upset Albany (really? really?), Princeton upset Hopkins (look at JHU’s record thus far—not so surprising), and Penn State upset Penn (in a battle of two underperforming teams).

N-C-double "eh?": War Horses
This week featured matchups between some of the premier Canadian talent in the NCAA. If these games had been broadcast on CBC or TSN they would have been must-see TV. I bet even Don Cherry and Ron McLean could get behind these guys.

First off, according to the man himself, Ben Williams is good to go and will be ready to face the St. John's Red Storm. So that is good news.
