Not a big LAX fan by any means (trying to learn!) but the poor start for the team has me worried. I've been waiting for a season where they really establish themselves with Nagle and it isn't there yet which has me concerned. It's even more glaring given the tremendous success Spallina has had in such a short time.

Again, this is just coming from a casual fan who is growing more impatient in recent years.

This.
There’s no reason SB shouldn’t have success like Albany, or more given location and academics.

I agree Wolfie. Nagle has had ample time to take this program to the next level. Long Island is a breading ground for Lax stars. Just not in a SB men's uniform...

Looking forward to watching the game tonight on Big Ten Network. Newsday had the game 2 goals apart in 4th quarter before wheels fell off

I just looked at the 2017 All Long Island Lacrosse Teams:
3 going to Maryland
3 to Virginia
3 to Cornell
3 to Stony Brook
2 to Hopkins, Hofstra and Duke
rest of list is just 1 kid per school

I might be wrong but thats pretty good for SB. Need to see it on the field but the talent is getting recruited.

That's an impressive haul- gotta turn that recruiting success into production on the field.

just wanted to mention how much improvement we've seen from daly.  he's gone from a second middie to a team leader, his bull dodge looks like corpo's, his shot is improved, and in both losses he's taken the team on his back and put in a goal in a time of need.  he's going to be a factor for us this year and next.

it's nice to see an athlete come of age in an era where kids either start right away, or transfer.

Problem one is Nagel. Look at his track record. He made the NCAA tournament once some years ago, and that was with the remanence of Coash Sowell’s team.  Coach Sowell has gone onto continued growth and success at Navy while SB and Nagel continue to rebuild. Second, Nagel does get some good recruits, but after a year or two of Nagel lax they transfer, which brings us back to problem one.

Here are the problems.
1-Terrible campus life for the student athletes. Tough to overcome when it comes down to recruiting.
2-Having Albany in our conference. We have continued to be the 2nd best team in this conference.
   Kudos to the Albany program. They have had a nice run at our expense.
Lets see if we can get on a run of our own. Very young and promising.

Another loss- now comes what I think is a must win game against Hofstra who is also winless.

Losing this next game would not look good. Obviously a very young team but gotta turn that talent into wins at some point.

Looked like we were still struggling with the fundamentals. We lost nearly every face-off through the first three quarters and never seemed to pull out of the scrambles with a ground ball. Philbin won several FOs against their second-tier guy who kept getting called for illegal procedures or false starts. Also, am I the only fan concerned about our ability to clear the ball? Seems like other teams are doing it effortlessly while we have our poles trying to bull dodge through 3 defenders hoping to avoid getting stripped while our middies are running away with their backs turned aloof to struggling defenders attempting the clear. It's painful to watch and I'm concerned that it doesn't seem to bother anyone on the sidelines.

Matsuoka wasn't dressed to play yesterday. Not sure what's going on there.

Agreed, SB has obstacles to recruiting, but others with the same limitations do much better on the same Island. Coach Sowell brought us to the ncaa semi-finals and continues to excel at Navy.  SB girls lax and Coach Spallina are constantly ranked and in the tournament.  Hofstra historically does better at a higher price school in a less desirable neighborhood. Adelphi, NYIT, Post are always ranked in the top 20 of D2 and win national championships. Nagel’s track record is clear, it’s not going to get better. Time for a change.

i noticed a new player at the penn state game- jerry brown.  his profile is up on the roster.

on the topic of recruiting- and i know this is more normal these days, but here's some changes in the last few months- just based on commitments and the current roster:

off the roster: conor wolff, devin andrews, john pfohl, john ehlers, mike benasutti, brian hannigan, aberdeen allen

new: jerry brown


it's no wonder classes are now up to 15-20 recruits.
