The way I read it, I think he meant that they finished near the bottom of the UAA last year, which is a fair point.

That being said, if I was mistaken and it was intended to represent a more long-term view, I would hardly call six consecutive NCAA appearances, two Final 4s, and a UAA title in the last 7 years "lower tier."

Of course, we all know I'm not biased. ;)

That's how I took it as well, particularly since he said that Emory was at the bottom of the UAA.  Of course, they did finish last, but that doesn't mean that they weren't pretty good, since all the UAA teams were pretty good.  And that was jknezek's point:  when W&L is playing an OOC game against a team that wasn't at the top of its conference, it's usually a good team anyway because the conference it's in is strong.

Bingo. Brandeis and Emory were both good teams last year. But they finished where they finished in a brutal conference.

Fair.

It was interesting because 'Deis was looking like it could turn a corner after the Emory game last year, but then they went 0-4-1 down the stretch. There do seem to be some good FY players coming in (one from Maine!) so I am hopeful even if they will be a young side. From what I heard, it did not sound like Nardizzi was expected to return, which is a shame but not unexpected — in my opinion he did look good in spurts technically but did not seem to have the strength nor the work rate that is standard of Brandeis forwards. They will have to find the goals from somewhere.

I am looking forward to the W&L game. Reminds me of when 'Deis played Haverford on the opening weekend of 2016 — high quality side from out of conference. As for W&L, I really thought they were a solid side last year (Sweet 16 potential or more) and just got unlucky 1. having a tough draw against Hopkins in the NCAAs and 2. being the better side in the game IMHO but losing on PKs. A bit of luck and I think they could have made it to the second weekend.

* on my earlier post, should be two UAA titles, one outright

I had heard that, too, but didn't quite believe it because it would make four schools in four years (NC State, UNC Wilmington, Brandeis, and, from what I understand, Framingham State).  It will be interesting to see what pans out...

Looking forward to it as well. Always nice to get these interesting and different match ups. Last year was a tough NCAA draw but the game was pretty seesaw and I have no complaints. The year before we got a fairly lucky draw and made the most of it, so perspective is important. W&L was going to struggle just like JHU did against Messiah. As I said, they are knocking on the door, but they are just that tier below the true national champ competitive teams. No shame in that. Breaking through to that top tier is ridiculously hard, staying there even more so. I'm just pleased they have reached the level I think they should be competing at. W&L has the resources and ability to be in that second tier in most sports. They reach that potential in many of them and I'm happy to see men's soccer join the crowd.
