COLLEGE CROSSECAST presents Ryan & Jake’s Seasons Ep. 4: The Best Title teams

Who’s the best of the best? The answer becomes pretty clear when we break it down, but join us as we have some fun along the way.

On the latest of my “Seasons” slate of College Crossecast with Jake, we take a look at the best teams ever assembled. Last time, we broke down some of the best D-1 men’s lacrosse teams that fell short of an NCAA championship. This time, though, we stack up the best of those that came away with the hardware on Memorial Day.

Our premise revolves around the best champion team (in our opinions’) for each of the 11 that have won a NCAA title. This means that some teams, like some of the 80’s Johns Hopkins or 90’s Princeton teams, will be touched upon, but not broken down in detail for the sake of this exercise. From there, we try to come up with a top 5 after we go through them all. Here’s a timeline for when we tackle each program:

3:00- Cornell
10:50- Denver
17:51- Duke
26:18- Johns Hopkins
33:54- Loyola
43:34- Maryland
57:01- Princeton
1:05:10- Syracuse
1:13:48- North Carolina
1:18:30- Yale
1:23:00- Virginia
1:34:10- Rounding up a top 5

As an added bonus, Jake and I come up with a “Mount Rushmore” for both Maryland and Syracuse (1:39:00). And if you’re a subscriber on iTunes or Google Play, or a follower of us on Podomatic, we’ve got an additional digression that we think you’ll enjoy!

You can listen to the episode on Podomatic or on those two aforementioned platforms for subscription, which will include downloading the bonus episode. You can also take a listen in the player below.
