Going to look like an easy win for people who just see the score. Felt like a couple of hours in a dentist chair.

Last point. I went to the hartford game last week and Connor even though a 1/2 step slow looked GOOD. Like many of you, I do not understand why the knee was left un-wrapped yesterday. It was obvious t

I agree.  What follows is just me, a former FB player and coach , who taped MANY knees and ankles over the years, throwing my two cents in even though I really know nothing about his injury except wha

US Lax Magazine has us as #6 overall facing Villanova...so all over the place

I like that match up, but a 6th seed would be unfair. Laxfilmroom has a less than 1% chance of a 6th seed and most likely seeded 3rd. There are a lot of dangerous teams so unless you get 1st or 2nd in reality I am not sure it matters other than hosting a game at home.

Had us as the 5 seed yesterday before we thrashed a Top 20 RPI team. Maryland's 3 goal loss to Hopkins doesn't move them off the 1 seed, but that single Hopkins win shoots them all the way up from the 7 seed to the 2 seed. Seems pretty ridiculous.

Pending today's game..we have the #2 RPI..with a road win over the #1 RPI team..and another road win over Top 10 RPI Syracuse in dominating fashion. 5 total top 20 RPI wins against just one loss..on the road against the #3 RPI team. 

The 4 or 5 seed should really be the floor..with a ceiling of probably 2. But the team regularly gets jobbed in Tournament seeding..so who knows.

I think we will be a 4 seed so if favorites continue to win, the top 4 seeds make it to Memorial Day weekend and avoid rematches with Yale and Maryland till then.   Not sure if Duke or Hopkins gets the other top 4 seed.  NCAA loves Hopkins every year.

It doesn't really seem like the Yale/Cornell game makes much of a difference for us. A Cornell win would likely bump them up to the Top 10 in the RPI..making us 3-1 against the Top 10..with 2 of them on the road. But a Yale loss would likely move them out of the Top 5..giving us just one Top 5 games.

EDIT: Maybe a Yale loss makes it a bit easier to put us ahead of them in the seeding?

Before today's Games when Albany blows out VT, Denver Loses, U MASS wins, Robert Morris wins, Cornell wins yesterday, 

According to this we are ranked higher than some of you are saying.  We'll see I guess.

That's from yesterday. Their update this morning moves us down to the 6 seed.

Yes I know BEFORE yesterday's games.   How the hell could we move down????

Yale vs Cornell looks like a factor in particular if Cornell wins...see a possible UMASS Amherst vs Albany match

Actually..looks like I could've just checked out what @LaxFilmRoom is doing right now. He has a Cornell win (and Duke over Boston) giving us a 57% chance of grabbing at least a 2 seed. So..go Big Red!

Because they moved Hopkins up to the 2 seed..shifting just about everyone down. Why? You got me.

I do not understand the love of Hopkins and the constant hate they show Am East and Albany!!!!!
