    Ierlan would reference Marr as a “second father.” On the night Ierlan won this year’s America East Defensive Player of the Year award, Ierlan voiced his appreciation for his coach in those terms. “Coach Marr, as much as he impacts the lacrosse community and my lacrosse career, I think what he really affects is people off the field,” Ierlan said. “That’s way more.”

    Coaches have the right to make their release conditional after the time and money spent on the athlete. It can be in conference or on schedule or whatever and I think Marr should hold his ground and use it. Conditional release. Go get'em kid.

    I don't think there is one person here who would disagree with that.

    Yale won it all with winning 60% of faceoffs. As long as we have someone good, I think we can still win. Does it help, yes and A LOT. IT IS HUGE, I'm not disagreeing with that. But to change the whole program's culture and philosophy for it, I don't agree. Maybe they don't get a Fields or a Nanticoke with a change in philosophy. All everyone talks about is the culture and philosophy of the program and how that has brought the level of players we have to the program and made it successful. I just don't agree with changing that for one player. Also, I just went through the stats for faceoffs for albany since 09. Before TD, we cracked the top 50 in faceoff win percentage twice. With where the program is now, I think Marr and staff and lure a top 10-20 guy who won't be TD and it will HURT but you can win. More stats: Maryland won in 2017 with the 34th ranked face off win percentage (50%) UNC won in 2016 with the 13th ranked face off win percentage (56%) Denver won in 2015 with a 66% win percentage Duke won in 2014 with a 57% win percentage As much as I agree that it is extremely important and TD could be the best EVER, I don't think changing the whole culture and philosophy of the program and risking losing out on other recruits or current players to keep one player is the right decision.

    Sorry to disagree but no one player should change the way a program has been successfully run for two decades.

    I fully appreciate your stance with your son and the program. I respect that a lot. Well done! There is no coach in the country whose style is going to fit every player. I absolutely think Coach Marr's style can win big games. Yale was the best team in the country this year and they showed it throughout the whole tourney and in the champ game. It has been rare for us to beat the top teams over the years. Seemed we were always close but never could get over the top because of what I think was less athletes and the lack of a solid FOGO but I don't think it was coaching. This year we beat Syracuse and Maryland on the road, last year we beat UNC in the tourney and also beat Denver in the quarterfinals this year to make it to our first final four. Those are four of the biggest wins in program history IMO. So, yes, I think Marr's style can and probably will win a championship if he stays the course. On TD, if he leaves, he leaves but it would be a huge blow to the program. I really think his play put us over the top this season. One last item I forget to mention above. I think without Connor's knee issues we win it all and no one is talking about transfers or Coach Marr's style! I think that now and will continue to think that. He was the heartbeat of this team. Amazing how far they got with him on one leg.

    home and home or shove it.
  10. Playing through a torn ACL is crazy. I can't get over that he played through that for so many games and some games at a high level for most players. Never to his level though.
  11. Love this article. Michael Kelly is just doing an unbelievable job covering UA sports. https://dailygazette.com/article/2018/05/26/despite-the-pain-fields-finishes-ualbany-career-with-a-smile
  12. That was just really hard to watch. Everyone can say what they want but I am damn proud of this team and I'm just sad and hurting for Connor Fields, the other seniors and the whole team really. Who knows what could've been if Fields was healthy the whole year. Just a really tough way to end the season. In a 2 v 3 matchup like today anyone can win and I really thought it would be a close and hard fought game but Yale just seems to know how to play against us on both sides of the field. This sucks.
  13. This is why I fly JetBlue! They have ESPNU on every TV. Watched the America East Championship game on the flight a few weeks ago. If they have wifi on the plane though you can watch on phone, ipad or laptop with WatchESPN app or ESPN3.com.
