    Is VPI in a position to add menís lacrosse to their Athletic Department? They seem to have a interest in building a successful womenís program ( like BC). Speaking of BC, it has always puzzled me that the Eagles do not have a D-1 menís program. Is Title IX the primary hurdle for both schools?

    These questions get asked so much that I'm confident of the answers. 1. Not easily. 2. Like NCSU, BC disbanded its program. I don't see either bringing it back.

    I think that's been said before.

    Duke scores another transfer-portal coup: Penn attackman Sean Lulley will be a grad transfer for 2022. You will recall he scored six goals against Duke in 2020.

    Syracuse fires John Desko, and replaces him with Gary Gaitóarguably the Michael Jordan of lacrosse.

    They follow this up by hiring Dave Pietramala, former Johns Hopkins head coach and nemesis of the mid-2000s Duke national runners-up, as the defensive coordinator.

    Quite the coaching staff the Orange have put together.

    Based on our post-Final 4 performances, I'm not going to complain. I think we just scored again.

    I believe that Title IX makes it very difficult for a school to add a menís lacrosse program without either cutting another large menís program or adding a couple womenís teams. A menís lacrosse team can have 45-50 players and (I believe) 12.5 scholarships. Schools need to offer similar numbers of slots and scholarships to women. There are not that many womenís teams that can bring in those numbers.

    There are many schools that have womenís lax but not menís laxÖ.I think womenís lax gives schools a head start on offsetting the numbers on a football team.

    Certainly some schools have added menís lax in the last couple decades, but it seems like they may be larger state schools that can also field more womenís teams. Someone correct me if I have mis-stated this.

    Seems like a very talented player but unclear whether he will be able to break through and be a starting attackman for us. Though he did score six goals vs. Duke in 2020.

    he was their leading scorer in the 2020 truncated season, and they played a top notch schedule, beating Duke, narrowly losing to Merlin, also played highly ranked PSU...I'm confident he's a keeper..

    Wow, impressive he scored so much as a goalie!

    speaking of which, I think we may well need one of those as well with Adler presumably moving on.

    I'll have to double-check, but I think we may have a really good one coming in next year (or was he a freshman this past year?). I'll look on Inside Lacrosse.

    Edit: Ok, must have been high. We didn't sign a goalie from the 2021 class. We did sign a 2020 goalie (Evan Barr) but he doesn't appear to be very highly ranked. Not that he may not end up being really good but expectations probably shouldn't be too high. We also return two juniors (Garrett Smith and Andrew Bonafede) but I don't know much about either except that Bonafede was ranked 42 in the class of 2018 and was a 4* so presumably he is pretty good.

    Adler was Dukeís first All-American in goal since 2005. Weíve won national championships and made Final Fours with some pretty non-legendary guys between the pipes.

    Duke has an odd tradition of recruiting younger brothers of more illustrious older siblings to play goal. Kyle Turri, Danny Fowler, and Garrett Smith are the obvious examples. Luke Aaronís older brother Sean was D3 goalie of the year at Union. John Uppgren led Tufts to two D3 championships and was D3 POY; heís an assistant coach for the Jumbos. Ella Bonafede had a nice career for the Duke women.

    ICYMI, Gary Gait has brought in Dave Pietramala as defensive coordinator. Wonder if they’ll go at it in the master’s division at the Lake Placid tournament.

    ETA: don’t buy the hype about Petro being the best defenseman ever. I’m old enough to have see Bruce Arena play, and he was better.
