- boy that let them play mentality sure isn't working
- well when Starsia was coach everyone wanted his head after a game like this
- at least the rest of the ACC looked bad
- our team is too well read???
the players have to play. The coaches have to get the players. Three years in, this is on Lars' staff now. He needs to figure out the pieces.
our shooters made a good goalie look great
The ACC being bad is NOT a good thing! We are not entitled to 4 or 5 auto-bids to the tournament. With the way the first week of play went, you could craft an argument that the ACC get ONE team into the tournament. Get off your high horses.
The days of recruit a bunch of St.Pauls/Gilman/GC/West Genny guys and you get to win are long gone. There are a LOT of schools with good players and a LOT of good players. We need more of them. Lars better figure out how to find them and develop them. For the record - that is how Danowski has done it, and he frequently sacrifices early season games to ensure that development takes place. As everyone who has played the game know - you can practice all you want, but the only way you really get better at playing the game of lacrosse is to play it.
In this era of showcase club ball, many players with the most potential have never really played in a TEAM system. Successful college coaches are going to be the best at developing those players.
