Via Mark Dixon (ESPN Lacrosse, Inside Lacrosse, Big Ten Networks):   What Happened: Albany 14, Yale 13 OT Takeaway: At this time of year we often talk about Denver and how it seems to ‘go away’ in

Guys, UA has been to the quarterfinals the last 2 years and are currently ranked #7. I'm pretty sure that qualifies as a power program.

That was one of the worst feeds I've seen in a long time.The herky jerky was pretty bad but the camera man needs to understand that lacrosse is not a game where you can fully zoom in on the player wit

Just finished: UA 16-9 over UMAss Lowell. Lead 15-3 after 3 and called off the dogs. UML won 4th 6-1 against mostly 2nd string, including goalie. VERY sloppy passing by 2nd string, plus some unnecessary

behind the back passing, shooting. A win is a win.

Albany up to #7 and SB right behind at #8. I still find it weird seeing Albany ranked above Duke, JHU, Cuse, UNC, and UVA. As awesome as it is being ranked 7th, I still feel they'd lose if they played those teams.

Could they lose to any of those teams? Sure they could. I wouldn't go into any of those games (on a neutral field) expecting them to lose though. UNC lost to UMASS who Albany beat. Duke lost to Harvard who Albany beat. Duke and JHU also beat Syracuse who we lost to. Point being these teams are all relatively close. I don't think there is a vast differential in talent like there used to be between Albany and those programs.

Also not a fan of the route of they lost to them and we beat them etc.

 

The wins we have aren't all that impressive either and neither are SB. It's never the case, but seems like the America East is getting too much love.

 

Beat Yale on the road then I'll feel a lot differently.

You can say the same thing about Yale as you are saying about Albany. They have one good win against Maryland back in February on their home field. Notre Dame or Denver should be ranked #1 imo. All I'm saying is the disparity between the "power programs" and a team like Albany is not what it used to be.

We do seem to have the love of the pollsters this season. As we beat up the AE, ACC teams beat each other up but they all have very high RPI's and don't move very far up or down. Our 2 losses were early in the season and don't seem to be affecting us. Here is my question. if we win out which would include a win at Yale and another win over SBU (probable in the AE tourney), are we then a top 3 or 4 in the rankings? Last year we went into NCAA tourney with just 2 losses (Cornell and Syracuse) but were seeded 9th which forced us to the road against 8th seeded Cornell.

We are very good and a nationally ranked almost every year, but power program should be used loosely.
