Dano took advantage of it, but at what cost?

I was relieved Chris Gray decided on UNC. I was relieved Yale’s FOGO didn’t look our way & that Sowers decided to play elsewhere with their extra year. They’re all great players but I’m glad none decided on UVa.

I don’t believe it’s easy to look a player in the eye & say we’re importing a ringer at your position. We have great players. How do you ask Laviano to compete for his spot? Or LaSalla? Or, even more strongly, the guys who have done all that was asked of them in the program but have played less thus far because they were/are behind upperclassmen? Beyond all doubt we have a very good grad transfer coming in, but last I checked electrical engineering is a real thing, he’s a serious student & he’s advantaging the graduate program at UVa moreso than just gaming his lacrosse angles. That’s a different scenario.

Dano seems to have taken a transactional route with this transfer exception. I don’t think that sits well with the guys he recruited who paid their sweat & have put their best into the program. Just my guess. My other guess is perhaps this is a hard push by Dino Jr to scoop in grad transfers regardless of being thoughtful about it or weighing the team culture consequences. That’d be a very Dano Jr thing.
