Fair enough. At the risk of sounding arrogant, you don't really want to play Mount Union in football anyway! But good luck to your lacrosse team next year.  ;D

For argument's sake ... if the NESCAC president's ever decided to release the NCAA Tournament moratorium on football (which I think they should; their reasoning is hypocritical), I think the balance of football power would change and slant more east-ward. NESCAC teams are pretty good right now ... imagine adding "we play for national championships" to the recruiting conversation. The NESCAC has shown how to be very good in a lot of sports ... I think football would no longer be Mount Union's, UMHB's, Whitewater's, etc. to dominate.

You might be right. Then again.............  ;D

A loose end post.  Today, was looking at graduation photos on the Amherst website.  On the last set of photos was another graduation event at the war memorial overlooking the baseball field, etc.  Prez and the AD were handling out diplomas and canes to the seniors who were playing in NCAA events.  The menís lacrosse team seniors posed for pictures with the runner-up trophy, with their families and friends in attendance...Head Coach too.  In cap and gown, canes etc.   Bright sunny day for the event.
Campus quite before the start of Reunion today.  Had my 55th reunion last Spring...my kids and their families joined me and my wife. ;D

FYI - the DIII women's lacrosse all-star game will take place Saturday at US Lacrosse Headquarters in Sparks, Maryland (literally around the corner from my house). DIII game is at 11:30 AM (IWLCA should have streaming info). DII and DI to follow.

There are a good crop of players including a good chunk from NESCAC schools (sorry, no Mount Union rep) and three of the four final four teams has at least one player. The two coaches are Tufts's and Wesleyan's coaches (not sure about assistants).

You might recognize the broadcast team: Monika and myself.

Now back to prep-work.

Dave,

So you're saying it'll be a short walk to work on Saturday? :D

Over on the WBB board the thread is DIII HCs moving to DI.  It shouldn't go unmentioned here that longtime Dartmouth women's lacrosse HC Amy Patton, who left a few years back after a very successful 24 year career, joined the Middlebury coaching staff as an assistant coach during the just concluded season.  She missed the collegiate game and wished to reconnect with it in some way.  She had a link with my sister-in-law via an ex assistant coach who had played for Missy, I believe, and was invited to become part of current head coach Livesay's staff.  Patton is currently the HC of the New England Command, defending champions of the Women's Professional Lacrosse League.
