His writings perplex me

He continues to speak about/for/invoke Virginia. I am surprised about that. Seems kind of like a shadow hanging over the new guys.

I do think he is out of touch saying that most of the best prospects would still be going to UNC, Duke, Virginia and Notre Dame and especially out of touch saying that the majority of the “next level” players with solid grades would be looking at the Patriot League. The Big10 was a better conference than the ACC this past year, it has several schools that are tops academically and many of its recruiting classes are better than Virginia's. UNC, by the way, has a huge cloud over its head and a student body not nearly as academically-competitive as ND or Duke, simply due to the significant in-state mandate. Syracuse gets awesome recruits, but he decided not to mention them. And, the Ivys are apparently not as competitive as the Patriot league?

I did not know what to make of the no poaching push. Virginia poached when it could before the rule, and Lars is actively poaching now. His comment may go more to those recruits who commit after September 1 junior year should not be poached. But, why? Seems if a kid wants to play lacrosse and improved his lot tremendously the spring of his junior year that schools ought to feel free to call him to see if he is rethinking his plan. The NLI sets things in stone, so I see no reason why coaches can't try to capture any kid up until that time.
