Screwed? You've got to beat whatever opponent you get. Everyone can complain about some matchup or bracket. Just win. You wanted games against better opponents, now you've got them. Go Danes. Let's pa

We can beat anyone in the country. Bring on 8-7 unc, and then we'll show Maryland they landed in the wrong side of the bracket.

I dont look at it that way. If they didnt play maryland this season and instead played that garbage school from the surburbs and even if albany beats them by 50 we probably dont get a home game. Obvio

Back to #8 in th all important RPI rankings which is the only poll that really matters.

 

Stony Brook is still a top 20 RPI win. Maryland is 7th, Yale is 17th, and Bing is just outside the all important top 25. So still have an opportunity to get 2-3 RPI too 25 wins.

 

The upward trend in scoring and the offense coming together is impressive. I'm most excited about seeing Kyle McClancy returning to his freshman scoring form, and Sean Eccle's putting the ball on cage.

 

How impressive has Bennett Drake been in his final season!

 

Would love to see Burgmaster get more involved in the scoring but he is turning in a great SSDM performance.

 

Only troublesome trend I am seeing, and it may be partly due to the leads the Danes are putting up is how they come out in the 3rd quarters of recent games, and the D and JD's numbers are starting to move in the wrong direction.

 

I am impressed at how the coaching staff got the team ready for some quick turnaround, road games against Harvard and Stony Brook in particular since both teams were desperately in need of a marquis win.

Scroll down to #9 and the pressure Fields and whoever he is running the 2 man game with, and just how big it is for Eccles, Burgmaster, etc. to continue to put additional pressure on the opposing defense.

Can someone explain to me why Notre Dame only plays 11 regular season games? Are we playing so many games because our conference schedule is so terrible that we need to add a ton of non-conf games to get the RPI up for an at large bid?

#AEMLAX Rookie of the Week: TD Ierlan, @UAlbanyMLax Won 84% of FOs (82-of-92), 38 GBs in 2 Albany wins last week

 

#AEMLAX Offensive Player of the Week: Griffin Feiner, @HartfordMLAX Career-high 7 points on 5 goals, 2 assists in win at Vermont

 

Guess they refuse to give it to Fields every week. Should have at least been Co-Offensive Player of the Week

Just tuning in to hear SBU announcer saying "If you could erase the 8-0 second quarter, the Seawolves would be up 6-5" May be one of the dumbest comments by an announcer.

 

Funny thing is this is not the first time I have heard a similar comment during the broadcast of mlax

They should have just said...... if UA didn't score, they would have won.

Up to 7th in Inside Lacrosse Poll, still 8th in RPI and Coaches' Poll

 

 

All that is out of 70 teams.

I needed a reminder of how many teams there were and went to the Ncaa RPI site to the bottom and cant help but notice the team from Loudonville is #69 in RPI. Glad they are off the schedule

I am pretty sure the NCAA allows 17 official play dates each season which counts fall ball and pre season scrimmages. So in Albany's case the scrimmage at Hopkins counts as one, and the scrimmages against Colgate and Princeton allow the Danes to play 14 regular season games.

 

IIRC Notre Dame had a lot more fall and preseason activities which limited how many regular season games they could schedule. Because of this built in RPI advantage of being in the ACC Notre Dame doesn't need to play as robust of a schedule and I believe I heard Corrigan say he felt it would keep them fresher come tournament time.

 

I am always surprised rhar Albany and Army don't have a home and home and with the overall AE RPI being so low, Albany needs to be more aggressive with the OCC to raise the RPI.

Although Ierlan was only 6/21 on the faceoffs vs cuse,

he has been evolving into a FO specialist. He will need to be against the top 10s of the nation.

 

vs drexel 19/27

vs umass 20/28

vs cornell 15/21

vs vermont 16/25

vs canisius 16/18

vs umass 19/25

vs harvard 26/32

vs sbu 26/30
