It is easy to forget that it's not just about lacrosse, that's a LOT of

what goes into a recruit's decision, but it isn't like there are not a bunch of schools where you can convince yourself you have a shot at a championship. Duke certainly falls into that category, as do UMD, UNC, Cuse, Yale, Loyola, ND, Denver....

Our titles are nice, but they are nothing more than a symbol of the success of the current staff at pulling together a winning culture. All the schools I listed have a shot at every recruit. Then it comes down to things like: education, personality of the coaches, personality of the players, location, where they parents went to school, how nutty (or not) a schools administration is being....

As much as we all love lacrosse, this isn't football, or basketball, or even baseball. Almost every lacrosse player at UVA (or Duke, UNC, the ivies) is going to have a very good career doing something that is not lacrosse. If you are smart enough to get into these schools, then you should be smart enough to understand all this.

So some kids are going to be a fit for UVA and some are not. I happen to think Lars is great, but I am sure he is not everyone's cup of tea. If you like Corrigan or Tierney, you probably are NOT going to like Lars very much - and vice versa. But these decisions can be as simple as a recruit saw cuter girls on his UNC visit than he did in Charlottesville. They are teenagers after all!
