We’re also doing Thanksgiving related polls in the run-up to our podcast. This one from yesterday was fun and the people answered correctly:

Lacrosse The Nation

After a 40 day absence, Syracuse is back:

They’ll have a couple of weeks to get some work in before the Spring, but the fact that they’re able to return to some kind of normalcy is great news.

Meanwhile, it looks like the MLL is planning to announce a Dallas franchise later this week. IL’s Kyle Devitte doesn’t know if it’s an expansion franchise or Rochester moving, which is what we’ve been hearing for quite some time:

Not good news for the University of Buffalo’s women’s club lacrosse team, and their status as a club team is in jeopardy. Max Kalnitz of The Spectrum says this could also lead to a big problem with the school’s Student Association:

SA has not explained why or how it reached its decision or why instead of freezing the club’s funds, it redistributed the money between the 32 other club sports teams. This has left the team scrambling to pay for league fees and has threatened its spring season.

UB Council student representative Mike Brown does not think the SA executive board handled the case well and feels SA is on a “witch hunt” to derecognize the women’s lacrosse team.

Brown, a junior political science major, said the images posted on the Instagram account, which showed members of the team drinking, should not have been grounds for probation.

“The Senate argued that the account was personal and didn’t reflect the team. The e-board basically tried to double down on the team,” Brown said.

Brown said he believes the decision highlights a tendency of the SA e-board to make decisions behind closed doors without the approval of the Senate, disregarding the checks and balances the Senate is supposed to provide within the student government.

SA members traveled to Montreal this weekend and did not respond to numerous Spectrum requests for comment.

The Recruiter Basketball Association charity game is gonna be so feisty!

Hobart’s Greg Raymond has a ton of pressure as the No. 1 overall pick:

Matt Kinnear of Inside Lacrosse lists some of his fall ball takeaways:

"Good enough isn’t good enough anymore." This is a direct quote from assistant coach Chris Cooper. The Bearcats went 11-5 last season. If expectations aren’t raised — from everyone involved with the program — they won’t be again. That’s the reality of sports, that if you’re not improving, someone else is. Coach Kevin McKeown knows and is looking to build something bigger: “We were good last year, but that's just the beginning.”

Dogs and lacrosse are always cute:

Marist Red Foxes goalie Brian Corrigan is a really good netminder, and a lot of people don’t know about him:

This is gorgeous:

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh supported his daughter and watched some lacrosse this weekend:

Lafayette gave back to the community this past weekend:

The Leopards also announced their 2018 captains and announced their season opening game:

Interim head coach Ed Williams announced seniors Will McCarthy, Scott McAvoy, Matt Close and James Roberts as captains for the 2018 edition of Lafayette men’s lacrosse on Monday.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the work that these young men have put forward to get to this point in their careers,” Williams said. “Their attitude, effort and attention to detail is exactly what Lafayette Lacrosse stands for and they live it every day. I could not imagine having a different group at the top leading this program on and off the field.”

All four of the Leopards’ eight-man senior group operate out of the midfield, asked to take on expanded roles on both ends of the field. This season’s Leopards will open play on Feb. 3, traveling to Chapel Hill, N.C. to take on North Carolina at 12 p.m.

Cleat swag!


Boston College Eagles midfielder Dempsey Arsenault tore her ACL before her senior year of high school. But as Megan Schneider of US Lacrosse Magazine writes, she’s been able to make a huge impact on the BC team:

Arsenault missed her final seasons of field hockey and ice hockey, but rehabbed with confidence she would return to the lacrosse field. Pool workouts and Normatec sessions became the norm.

“I had a countdown to when I could run again and when I could play again,” Arsenault said. “I probably took it for granted before, but now I really cherish it every day I get to play.”

As a true midfielder, Arsenault decided to take a step back, finishing her high school career as an attacker to slowly work her way back to full speed. It allowed herself to dictate how her body moved, versus playing defense and having to react to others.

Being proactive, in her physical therapy and in her play, helped her regain her range of motion and star in the Under Armour All-American Game later that summer.
