Five games were actually played, and Columbia forfeited 1 game to Harvard, Columbia and Cornell each winning 2 and losing 1, while Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania each won 1 and lost 2. This left Cornell and Columbia tied for the championship, but each protested players on the other's team, and both protests were upheld, ... with the two leading teams disqualified, [ ] the season was unsatisfactory to all concerned."[20] In February 1904, "t was unanimously voted to award to Cornell the championship of the Inter-University League for last year."[21]Cornell and Hopkins did not play each other in 1903.

* Swarthmore joined the ILA in 1902. The university's website claims a championship for the year 1900.[25] Although not a member of a league in either 1900 or 1901, Swarthmore had a leading team in 1901, which is a credible championship claim.[7]

USILL Champions 1906–1925

 

The USILL (United States Inter-Collegiate Lacrosse League, also USICLL) was a closed membership organization. Some strong teams of the era, such as Army and Navy, were never members, so that in some years, the USILL champion was not necessarily the best team in the United States.

The members of the USILL in 1906 were Columbia University, Cornell University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, Lehigh University, University of Pennsylvania, Stevens Institute of Technology and Swarthmore College. In 1907, Hobart College became a member, and Penn withdrew. As had been the rule for over two decades, 12 players per side constituted a team, and the USILL was split into Northern and Southern divisions, corresponding to the former IULL and ILA, respectively.

Bold indicates victory or tie in head-to-head game, or that such game was not played. Italics indicates victory in intra-division head-to-head game (1909, 1923) or tie-breaker (1922).

Also, Penn def. Hopkins, 5–3; Hopkins def. Lehigh, 3–1; and Lehigh def. Penn, 3–1. A Southern Division tie-breaker playoff was arranged with Hopkins to play at Lehigh, and the winner to meet Penn. However, Hopkins defaulted to Lehigh, and Lehigh then refused to play Penn, except in a series. Thus Penn was declared winner of the Southern Division by default.[40] Syracuse, Johns Hopkins[5] 1923 Syracuse (10–3–2) & Cornell (6–2) Johns Hopkins (6–2) Army^ (8–1–1) def.

* Division champions were selected based on results of intra-division games, difficulty of schedule and number of wins.[41]

# Championship or co-championship claims, as published in school media guide, record book or yearbook

In 1917–1919, World War I and the influenza epidemic curtailed lacrosse activity, as many schools eliminated or reduced schedules. Cornell, Harvard and Hobart did not field teams in 1917–1918. Yale and Johns Hopkins sat out 1917 only. Cornell did not return until 1920.

^ Not a USILL member

USILL Championship Tally

In four of the 20 years of the USILL's existence (1907, 1923, 1924, 1925), it was difficult to determine the national champion because the division winners did not play each other.[41] In 1907 and 1924, both division winners claimed championships. In the other two years, Cornell (1923) and Maryland (1925) did not. In the war years of 1917 and 1918, Stevens Tech fielded the only Northern Division team to be active both years. Only one Northern intra-division game was played during that span, thus no Northern Division champion could be declared. However, by virtue of default and one win, the current Stevens Tech record book lists two championships.[36][37]

Team Championships[1] Winning Years (1906–1925) Johns Hopkins 11 1906, 1907†, 1908, 1909, 1911, 1913, 1915, 1918, 1919, 1923, 1924† Lehigh 5 1914†, 1916, 1917, 1920, 1921‡ Syracuse 3 1922, 1924†, 1925 Cornell 2 1907†, 1914† Swarthmore 1 1910 Harvard 1 1912‡

† Co-champion

‡ Won a post-season playoff game for the championship

USILA Champions 1926–1935

In 1926, the USILL disbanded and formed the USILA as an open-membership governing body. In addition to the former league's 12 schools, six others were soon admitted as members. From 1926–1931, the USILA executive board awarded gold medals after each season to the teams it selected as the most outstanding in the nation.

† The USILA did not name champions for the 1932–1935 seasons.[1] The teams listed claim the national championship based on being the leading team in the nation for these years.[1]

USILA Champions 1936–1972

Further information: Wingate Memorial Trophy

From 1953–1959, all college teams were placed in one of three divisions, dependent upon their records, schedules, and success for the preceding five years, and a point system was created. Teams were required to play at least six games against teams in their own divisions. Teams were realigned every three years.[7]

In all years it existed (1882–1905), the ILA consisted of 3 to 5 teams, with league championships dominated by a few schools. Likewise, the USIULL had only 3 or 4 teams during 1899–1905, with only Cornell's 1903 league title claimed in the present as a championship. Several schools have claimed their Northern and Southern Division titles won during the USILL years as national championships (based on the results of 3 or 4 intra-division games), while others have not. Still others were acclaimed in their time as unofficial title winners based on being leading teams in the collegiate ranks in particular years. Non-league members were ineligible for official title consideration before 1926. The USILA awarded gold medals to leading teams from 1926–1931, but made no selections from 1932–1935.

# Championship or co-championship claims, as published in school media guide, record book or yearbook

§ The USILA did not name champions for the 1932–1935 seasons.[1] School claims national championship based on being that year's leading team.[1]

† Won a tournament conducted for the first collegiate national championship by the U.S. National Lacrosse Association.

‡ Won a post-season championship game between the winners of the USILL Northern and Southern Divisions.[1]

Swarthmore's website claims a championship for the year 1900. However, Swarthmore had a leading team in 1901, which is a credible championship claim.[7]

Notes regarding Intercollegiate Champions Year Champion Note 1891 Johns Hopkins First of Johns Hopkins' 44 national titles; team went 5–1 defeating Lehigh, Stevens, Pennsylvania (twice) and club team Schuylkill Navy,[32][46] with a lone loss to Schuylkill also. 1910 Swarthmore Won championship with defeats of Harvard, Carlisle, Stevens, Navy, Lehigh, Johns Hopkins (a 16–3 win) and Johns Hopkins Alumni, and losses to Toronto University and club team Mt. Washington. 1914 Navy Navy began a string of years in which its teams recorded some of the best collegiate records, although not as a member of the USILL.[1] The team went 6–0–1, defeating Harvard, Baltimore City, Johns Hopkins, Swarthmore, as well as the eventual national co-champions, Lehigh and Cornell, with a tie against Carlisle.[5] 1928, 1932 Johns Hopkins Johns Hopkins won Olympic trial tournaments among the nation's leading teams and represented the United States in the Olympic Games of Amsterdam and Los Angeles.

I was just at an all company meeting for a week down in Florida and there are people there from all over the world. A random british man who works for our company came up to me and said, "Great Danes right?!" I didn't know what he was talking about and then realized I was wearing my UA hat around the resort that evening. I said, "yeah, how do you know them?" He said he was a big lacrosse fan and loved watching and them and started talking about the Thompsons and Nanticoke. He said he watches the games on ESPN3 sometimes or when they are posted on youtube. It was a fun conversation.

From what I have seen several voters have flipped UA and Maryland in their polls. Might be #2 in the medial poll, which I don't think is such a bad thing.

The ranking is cool and all, but all that matters is getting through to championship weekend.

Kessenich dropped us to #2 based on the Cornell game

 

http://www.insidelacrosse.com/article/quint-s-top-20-stars-shining-bright/51507

2. Albany TD Ierlan dominated the face-off dot (24-of-24 with 22 grounders), as Albany came back to beat Cornell 11-9 on Sunday, scoring the last four goals of the contest. I downgraded the Danes to No. 2 based on this effort. Perhaps they were looking ahead. On a possession-based model, it wasn't pretty.

 

The Great Danes visit College Park next. Saturday will be epic. Maryland beat them twice in 2017. Albany needs to build a strong resume because both the Danes and Stony Brook women's team were shafted by the NCAA Tournament seedlings in 2017.

 

Guess we have to keep pounding people

 

He also has Vermont only at 19 instead of 15-16 like the polls
