Article on Shoreham-Wading rivers big win on IL:
http://insidelacrosse.com/news/2012/06/ ... 0-penn-yan

Yet in the wake of Brosco’s exit, Tim Rotanz – IL’s No. 11 Young Gun Junior – shined, establishing himself as arguably the top returning player in all of Long Island with a monster performance to hand his father and his team a state title. Rotanz did it all, including leading the team with a game-high six groundballs (tied with face-off man Mike Loscalzo), playing defense and taking only a few breaks throughout the game.


Reading this, you get the feeling Rotanz could play either attack or midfield at UMd, which ever is needed most.

-------
Also an article on the Conestoga-La Salle game:
http://insidelacrosse.com/news/2012/06/ ... ampionship

Who Impressed
Joe Santoliquito's analysis:
Matt Rambo, Jr., Attack, La Salle
Rambo was at times the best player on a field filled with stars. Maryland coach John Tillman has to be ecstatic. He’s getting Rambo, along with Conestoga’s Tyler Brooke and Bradlee Lord, who combined to score seven of the game’s 17 goals. Rambo has quick feet, has a quick release, cuts extremely well and his best attribute is his ability to create for teammates. About the only dubious area of his game is his decision-making. Two turnovers led to Conestoga first-half goals.

Tyler Brooke, Sr., Attack, Conestoga
He scores big goals in big situations. But again, it’s nothing new for the Maryland-bound Brooke. He scored four of the Pioneers’ first six goals and shown an accurate shot, and a keen eye.

Bradlee Lord, Sr. Attack. Conestoga
You can’t mention Frisina without mentioning Lord. He finished the last game of an amazing high school career with two goals and four assists (three assists to future Maryland teammate Brooke). He’s able to find creases in a defense and exploit them, and he has an uncanny ability to find an open teammate in a maze of players. His assist on Frisina’s third-quarter goal manifested that skill.


It will be interesting to see if Brooke challenges Billy Gribbin at the left-hand finisher spot, but Tillman likes his upperclassmen. Of course, Lord seems to shoot his big shots lefty also.

I think that I would want to keep Kevin Cooper's experience out on the midfield. The Terps have so many attackmen (of supposed quality) that one or more of them have to be ready to step up. Carlson was already showing positive signs this past spring.

With regard to that article, the most obvious, and underreported stat, is the fact that they only scored three goals in that championship game, the lowest ever (previous low was Syracuse scoring four against Hop in 1985). That's the #1 nut to crack and won't be lost on Tillman I expect - what a great hire he was, credit to Debbie Yow.

Maryland's John Tillman has yet to watch title-game
 
http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/lacr ... ?track=rss
Part of that has to do with a busy two weeks that has included exit meetings with his players and assistant coaches, attention to some administrative details and trips on the recruiting trail. Asked if the pain of the loss was too fresh to relive, Tillman didn’t really deny that line of questioning.


I don’t blame him.  Better to find out what the players and coaches are thinking and it is recruiting time.  He can look at the game later on in the summer and probably be more objective in what went right and what went wrong in the game.
 
The article also says that Jessie B. is recovering well from his concussion.

Congratulations to Jesse Bernhardt, Joe Cummings, and John Haus for making the USILA Scholar All-American Team. It's nice to see some guys getting it done both on the field and in the classroom. :clap:

UMd is a pretty good academic school, but you can't really expect to have as many guys as Hopkins does on the list. :whistle:

LM Early Offseason Top 15 (MD1 Nos. 5-1)

http://laxmagazine.com/college_men/DI/2 ... n_i_no_5-1

2. Maryland (12-6)
2012 Final Regular-Season Rank: 10
2012 Preseason Rank: 7
Key Returnees: Owen Blye (20g, 20a), John Haus (16g, 17a), Billy Gribbin (22g, 4a), Kevin Cooper (10g, 16a), Jesse Bernhardt (60gb, 33ct), Landon Carr (29gb), Curtis Holmes (51.4% FO), Michael Erhardt (44gb, 22ct), Niko Amato (7.5 GAA, 54%)
Key Losses: Joe Cummings (31g, 19a), Drew Snider (24g, 7a), Mike Shakespeare (18g, 2a)

•Will Maryland play with emotion week-in, week-out? The Maryland Moshpit reached an encore during the NCAA tournament, with the Terps' sideline celebrations fueling their run to Memorial Day. The most energetic outbursts coincided with Maryland's best lacrosse, and they symbolized what the program stands for. But how sustainable is it to play that way each week? The Terps' longest win streak of 2012 was three games, and they had "letdown" losses against UMBC and Colgate. On the field, quirky goalie Niko Amato leads the emotional charge. On the sidelines, the scout team follows the efforts of defensive coordinator Kevin Warne. Still, there's no doubting Maryland has all the pieces to play the last game of the season for a third straight year.
•Will Kevin Forster step into starting spot on attack? The Terrapins graduate senior captain and multi-dimensional Joe Cummings, who was their leading scorer last year. But before the season started, it wasn't clear whether Cummings would play midfield or attack. Freshman Kevin Forster looked great in fall ball and seemed to have solidified a spot on attack before he endured several injuries, and Cummings was bumped down once Forster got hurt. Now, Forster likely will play a significant role on Maryland's attack, alongside Owen Blye and Billy Gribbin. Forster showed flashes, scoring two goals and an assist in the Terps' 16-10 semifinal defeat of Duke.
•Is Jake Bernhardt fully healthy? The assumption should be yes — during NCAA tournament practices, Bernhardt ran with the scout team — and that makes a big difference for Maryland, which graduates first-liner Drew Snider and second-liner Mike Shakespeare. Some expected Bernhardt, who suffered a shoulder injury during a preseason scrimmage, to return last season. But in early May he applied for a medical hardship year to retain his final year of eligibility. Bernhardt (15g, 3a in 2011) injects athleticism into the Terps' offense, which also loses Cummings. Bernhardt is also capable of playing the faceoff wing, or working on the defense end. And let's be honest: Two Bernhardt's are better than one; second-team All-American long-stick midfielder Jesse Bernhardt is back, anchoring the Terps' strong defense.

Interesting that Matt Forman favors Kevin Forster. I imagine it will be a real duel for that last spot. I tend to favor going with Jay Carlson on attack and leaving Forster on the midfield, but who knows.


Lots of future Terps on the Under Armour Underclassmen rosters:
https://events.r2it.com/lacrosse/underarmour/2012/roster/underclass.aspx#

Philadelphia - Chad Rafferty, D, Malvern Prep, 2013; Matt Rambo, A, La Salle, 2013
South - Daniel Morris, G, Jesuit College Prep, 2013
Upstate - Connor Cannizzaro, A, Cazenovia, 2013; Adam DiMillo, M, Bishop Timon St.Jude, 2014;
Washington DC - Ben Chisolm, A, South River, 2013;
Western - Lucas Gradinger, A, Torrey Pines, 2013; Colin MacIlvennie, M, Eastside Catholic, 2014;

They play June 29,30 and July 1 in Towson.

Caleb Brodie (Hingham HS) is an early verbal to Maryland and I learned why. He had great vision, flourished in transition but could also rip it with his feet set - he rarely made mistakes in general

We are over it, that is just some guy doing rankings, not a Md fan. :whatever:

Maybe though you will have to get over the fact that while Colgate had their day against UMd and was the better team on the field that day, overall UMd was the better team - making it to the NCAA finals both years. :idea:

They finally put up the New England underclassmen team. There are two Terp commitments on it:
Alec Dunn, D, Westminster, 2013 and Connor Kelly, M, Avon Old Farms,2014.

So UMd has 12 'known' commitments in the underclassmen games, on 8 of the 10 teams. I say 'known' because a good number of the players have not committed yet, especially the 2014's.

Here is the new field

http://www.umterps.com/sports/m-footbl/ ... 12aaa.html

Maryland men's lacrosse head coach John Tillman said, "Having a field that is safer for our student-athletes and plays so much cooler is very important. The fact that it will look terrific and be a great asset to Coach Edsall and I when we are recruiting makes it that much better. I am excited not only for our student-athletes but for everyone associated with the University of Maryland."

JHU thread shows 573 posts since the season ended;516 for Navy;Maryland 56. :o No biggie but kind of surprising you Maryland fans would be so far behind.

Possible Reasons:
-Maryland strives for quality over quantity
-UMD has been so successful the past 2 years,they feel above the fray.
-Only 13 JHU guys have been posting so far.Just wait.Predicting exponential growth in the number of posts in the next few weeks.
-Navy:Those Sowell vs. Meade as well as the GET CHET posters are either emotionally exhausted or off-shore.

Or........... :roll:
