Legends


Tierney, for whom I carry no brief and with whom I have had negative personal interactions, is the best lax coach of all time. He took a team that had been at the bottom of the Ivy League and built a powerhouse, dominating for a decade, then took a mid major and won a championship. Petro's 2005 NC had a senior class that never lost a home game. The 2003 team lost the NC to a team they had beaten during the regular season, and the 2004 team throttled the eventual NC at Homewood in March. The 2007 NC was not the best team in the country for most of the season but rose to the occasion in May. Things went downhill during the end of his tenure at Hopkins.
To me, Starsia and Desko were good enough coaches to win NCs with exceptional talent but who stayed on a few years longer than they should have. Neither handled serious off field issues well, one with horrific results, the other averting tragedy after recruiting a plaryer whose past should have sent up red flags.
