BTW I was watching the telecast, and in the third quarter Patsos was in the booth and jokingly (I hope) took credit for inspiring the 'aints' second goal. Too bad he wasn't asked a few minutes later i

"Albany is currently FIFTH in the country in average attendance...." Hmmm, shouldn't all of our lacrosse games against LLC be at Fallon Field since our ave. attendance is 2,446 and theirs is only 479

U Mass is usually pretty good in lax. I wouldn't drop them.

What I see when they get to this level is the same thing I have seen the first two years in the CAA. Top to bottom, the other teams are usually a little bigger, a little faster and a little more athletically skilled. In

order to beat them you have to play a near perfect game while they hope the other side has an off day. Yes, we have the offense, but we need the face off stud and the defense to compete. Fields and Oakes

are a good start for 2015, but who is going to feed them?Oooops! 2016…time flies!

Some interesting analysis out there. One theory is that ND's superior depth, especially in the midfielders, wore down UA. They have three lines they rotate. The defender on

Lyle was simply amazing. It looked like he had a tether connected to Lyle's waist. He rarely gave him the separation he needed to be effective.

One thing that popped out to me is the fact that the ND offensive players were fast, and often beat our man with their first step and blew by us.

Seemed like there were at least a handful of uncontested, short range opportunities for ND.


As for the offense, it seemed like Lyle held on to the ball too long, considering how well they were playing him. What works easily against the AE types, doesn't necessarily work against the elites.


They rode us well on our clear attempts.... pressure that we aren't used to.. if we played in a conference like the ACC against the top programs in the country, on a week in and week out basis, it would help prepare us for those types of games. We have some very skilled players, let's not under-rate them.


Curious on how our program responds in the post Thompson era.

Just curious - why didn't Ky Tarbell play today?


A lot of guys did not seem to get any/many minutes. Drake did not play at all. Maloney hardly at all. McClancy and Oskia less than usual. Maybe it only appeared this way because we hardly had the ball?? Actually, Kevin McNally who played limited during the season was on the field more than any of the others mentioned??
