McAnaney: What to Make of Ivy League Madness?
My first thought on the past weekend in college lacrosse is that we now know relief pitching in the Missouri Valley Conference is extremely unreliable. We also know that we know nothing about the Ivy League. The Ancient Eight will still probably be a multiple-bid league with Cornell and Yale in the driver's seat because of top-10 wins over Albany and Maryland, respectively, but Brown will have plenty to say about that over the next two weeks. It's an interesting week for my Top 20 as teams one through five all won and teams six through nine all lost. There's not too much shifting because I can't drop Albany after losing at the Carrier Dome.

Serioulsy… NO ONE else thinks Cuse is #1 right now? HA!
