They turned out superior. What a combination of talent, team speed and team play.
And 'Laxn', "prejudice and ignorance" are some pretty strong words to toss around. I'm completely open to other teams that should be included in the list. Just try not be an ss about it.
I never said anything about these teams being a "surprise" this year. I said they are "lesser known. newcomers" to the top ranks of D1 lacrosse. Lesser known is probably a bad choice of words since there are no teams in D1 that the audience of this site don't know (a lot) about.
So 'Freeline', it has nothing to do with the 'water we're drinking', if you actually paid attention you'd have understood that I was not asking people to rank all the D1 teams, just a particular subset.
Defined as: A team that has not been regularly ranked in the Top 20 prior to 2000. So that means, even if UNC sucked for the past 2 years and are playing well in '07, they don't count. That goes for other teams that have been mentioned like Duke, Brown, Hofstra and probably Notre Dame (they became a regular in the tournament starting in the mid 90's).
And I would add Brown in at about 6 or 7 on this list, but too me these teams see kind of arbitrary in terms of who qualifies. It seems to me that Nike Sneakers Platform
9. Drexel (the win on UVA was because of a really bad game by UVA, not a great Drexel team.)
Denver, on the other hand, has had a tougher schedule, but still lost to Stony Brook and only took Nova by 1. Yet, they sit a top of a couple list in this thread. They didn't even make the "others receiving votes" list this week.
this list is based on your own personal prejudice and ignorance rather than anything substantial, I would only consider Drexel a surprise team, Penn State has actually been the opposite they've been surprisingly unsuccessful this year. These teams have gotten better but have been good for a while now.
OK, let me try to reel this thread back in:
talking about UVA, Cuse, Hop, MD, Princeton, Loyola, etc. We're talking about the fact that there are more and more great lax players out there that are playing at schools that are not the typical D1 program. As a result, teams like Albany, Denver, Fairfield, Penn State are now SERIOUSLY competing against those great programs at the highest level.
So I will re categorize the teams I listed as "newcomers".
Two of Ohio St. wins were against Robert Morris and Wagner. All be it close, they still lost to Bucknell.
I guess I just don't get all this talk about Nike Shoes Usa Denver and Ohio St. Are they good? Yes. Are they better this year than the likes of a Albany, Bucknell or Fairfield? I just don't see it based on their current record.
Either way, I think we all understand the point on trying to make here. We're not Nike Shoes Camo
4. Virginia. certainly on paper last year they were going to be a good team.
So what does it take to suceed. Talent. luck. Pluck.
If it suppose to be suprise teams Albany would be Number 1. Denver should not be on the list because they were already ranked at the beginning of the season so that just takes the whole point of surprise away. Are you guys doing ranking them in general how they have been doing over the years?
are these teams legit
Dartmouth isn't really very good this year. I saw them play against Chapel Hill, and it looked as if they had A LOT of gelling to do. They're highest ranking in the past 7 years has been 14. In fact, they were probably a lot better, relative to the competition, way back in Gate era, or even pre Gate era when they were one of the few schools who had an established lacrosse team. This is expected though, as they are a smaller Ivy, making their pool of candidates for a lacrosse team quite small, despite Nike Shoes Red Colour
