Is anyone excited about a new conference (ECAC), new assistant, and the first year under Coach Myer's belt? I know that last year did not go too good, but a new coaching staff is bound to have some bumps in the road. I like the schedule. Good sos. Win games, and maybe an at large, if they don't win the AQ

Can anyone confirm that the middie from calvert hall that was committed to Ohio State(aldersberger I think) Has de-committed and will now be attending Loyola? If so a big big loss for the buckeyes-he was one of the top middies in the MIAA last year.Seems like Ohio State having a difficult job getting top players from Maryland.

Zach Rodgers is a transfer from UMASS for this upcoming season. Good luck to him, and congrats to ohio state in picking him up. He has tremendous vision and should have big assist #'s this year.

Looking forward to meeting up with any of you Buckeye fans on October 9. I've lived in the Cleveland suburbs now for 7 years but since my loyalties lie with the Blue Jays, I won't be able to root for the Bucks. I am delighted that my boys are coming out this way since I usually only get to make one pilgrimage a year to Homewood. Let me know if any of you are going and maybe we can meet for diet coke.

[See update in bottom section.]

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio State men's lacrosse team will continue its fall practice with a Scarlet vs. Gray intrasquad game at 7:00 p.m. Friday under the lights in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The scrimmage is open to the public and admission is free.

The 48-man roster opened practice last week and continues fall ball through Oct. 17. The team will host Johns Hopkins in the 2009 Thumbs Up Event at 7:00 p.m. Oct. 9 at Upper Arlington High School in Columbus. Tickets are on sale now for the game. Click here for more information.

The team spent part of Sunday getting to know each other off the field, cheering the field hockey Buckeyes on to a last-minute win before taking part in a GPS scavenger hunt at Camp Lazarus north of Columbus. The teams were split into smaller groups and had to find items/clues scattered throughout the 40 acres of property. The winning team included senior Andrew Stimmel, junior TJ Smith, junior transfer Zach Rogers, sophomore Keenan Ochwat, freshmen Stewart D'Ambrogi and Kevin Mack.

The Buckeye lacrosse family continues to send its thoughts and prayers to Coach Dennis Stewart, a former Ohio State assistant coach who is in the hospital fighting to recover from a stroke suffered last week.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Because of impending inclement weather and expected poor field conditions, the Ohio State men's lacrosse team's intrasquad has been rescheduled for 9:00 p.m. Friday at the indoor practice field at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The 2010 Ohio State men's lacrosse schedule features seven games in Columbus, highlighted by the third annual "Showdown in the Shoe" which features the Buckeyes, now members of the ECAC Lacrosse League, taking on conference-foe Air Force April 24 in Ohio Stadium. Four of the team's non-conference opponents were NCAA tournament participants a season ago in North Carolina, Notre Dame, Villanova and Massachusetts.

"This may very well be our toughest schedule to date," Nick Myers, Ohio State head coach, said. "We are excited to begin play in the ECAC. The new non-conference teams on our slate, including Villanova, Massachusetts and Albany, will bring tough competition to Columbus and prepare us for our first year in the always-tough ECAC. We were able to maintain our series with Notre Dame even though we are in different conferences now and will start a home-and-home matchup with North Carolina. We are looking forward to the challenge the 2010 schedule presents."

The Buckeyes open the 2010 slate with a home game against 2009 Colonial Athletic Association champion Villanova Feb. 13, with the Wildcats, now members of the Big East, making their first trip to Columbus. After a game at Bucknell Feb. 20 Ohio State returns home for a game vs. 2009 ECAC tournament champion Massachusetts, now a CAA member, Feb. 27. It will serve as the first matchup between the schools.

The following week Penn State comes to town (March 6). The Nittany Lions, now members of the CAA, are the only other Big Ten school to sponsor men's lacrosse. The teams have met each of the last six years for the unofficial "Big Ten championship."

A road trip to Robert Morris March 9 follows before a home game against Albany of the America East Conference, the first game in history between the teams. Ohio State will then hit the road for five-consecutive games. The trip begins with a game at Notre Dame, the 2009 Great Western Lacrosse League champion, who now is a member of the Big East, March 20.

Ohio State opens conference play in the ECAC against Fairfield March 23, followed by a game at Quinnipiac four days later (March 27). April starts with league games at Loyola April 3 and Hobart April 10 and the Buckeyes return home to host Denver April 17.

The third-annual "Showdown in the Shoe" is April 24 and features the Buckeyes taking on Air Force in a conference matchup at 11 a.m. The event has set national attendance records in each of its first two years, with more than 30,000 fans watching Ohio State face Notre Dame in 2009. A home game against Bellarmine May 1 wraps up ECAC action for the Buckeyes.

The final game of the season is May 8 at North Carolina in the first half of a home-and-home series between the teams.

Can any of you OSU fans tell me how the freshman Flynn is looking? I went to high school with his mom and hope to head to Columbus to watch a few games this year. You guys are also getting Joe Meurer next year from McDonogh. His uncle was in my class there and I know Joe's dad as well. Tom, his uncle, was a tremendous athlete and teammate and I think Joe has that gene as well. Fortunately, they don't have the Blue Jays on their schedule so I feel comfortable in rooting for the hometown boys.

Ohio State Season Preview and Villanova Game Notes

New postby DakotaDan on Fri Feb 12, 2010 7:11 pm

The Ohio State men's lacrosse team opens its 2010 campaign at 1:00 p.m. Saturday when it hosts Villanova in a non-conference matchup. The teams will meet on the indoor field at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. The game is approaching a sellout, so fans are encouraged to pre-purchase tickets.

Tickets for groups of 10 or more are $2 each and must be purchased in advance. For more information, contact Mike Johnson in the group sales office at 614-247-1984. Group tickets are not available to purchase online. (See below for information on "Showdown in the Shoe" tickets.)

Proud of Those Who Serve

Live stats can be accessed from the men's lacrosse schedule page at OhioStateBuckeyes.com. A league-wide scoreboard can be found on the home page at ecaclacrosse.com.

Buckeyes vs. Wildcats

Ohio State is 2-0 all-time against Villanova, with both meetings on the Wildcats' home field. The teams last met March 18, 2008, a 15-8 Buckeye victory. Against the Wildcats, Joel Dalgarno had a team-best five points, Jeff Ryan had four points with two goals and two assists and Kevin Buchanan and Mario Ventiquattro each had hat tricks. The Buckeyes led, 10-4 at halftime, en route to the win. The first meeting was March 24, 1964, a 13-4 win for Ohio State.

Wildcat Wisdom

Villanova is in its first season in the newly-formed Big East lacrosse conference and was picked to finish fourth in the league's preseason poll. The squad was 11-6 last season and earned a berth in the NCAA tournament after winning the Colonial Athletic Association title. The team returns 25 letterwinners, including six starters, from the 2009 squad.

The Wildcat staff is comprised of all Villanova grads - Michael Corrado ('87) is the head coach, joined by John Derham ('88), Simon Connor ('04) and Joe Canuso ('06).

Indoor Lax

Ohio State has played four games inside Woody Hayes Athletic Center, winning all four contests. The first came in March 2008 when a blizzard forced the Buckeyes and Penn State indoors and the Buckeyes downed the Nittany Lions, 17-6. Last season the Buckeyes defeated Detroit (21-1), Bucknell (10-9 OT) and Fairfield (11-6) inside the WHAC.

For Starters

This is the fourth-consecutive year Ohio State is opening the year with a home game. The Buckeyes downed Detroit, 21-1, last year to open 2009 after suffering an 8-7 loss in overtime to Navy to begin the 2008 campaign. The squad won the 2007 opener, beating Robert Morris in Columbus, 13-5.

They're Back

Ohio State returns 28 letterwinners and seven starters from the 2009 squad. Included in the returnees are four all-conference selections in defensemen Matt Kawamoto and Scott Foreman, goalie Brandon Freeman and midfielder James Green.

Leaders of the Pack

Seniors Scott Foreman, Brandon Freeman and Andrew Stimmel have been elected team captains for the 2010 squad. The captains were selected by a vote of their teammates. The trio was part of a group of players who stepped forward with an interest in leading the team before practice began and auditioned throughout fall camp.

Break It Down

The 46-man Buckeye lacrosse roster includes eight seniors, 15 juniors, eight sophomores and 15 freshmen.

The players come from 13 states and provinces, led by nine from New York and eight from Ohio, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Three Buckeyes call British Columbia home, with two from both New Jersey and Virginia. Players also come from Michigan, Colorado, Connecticut, California, Ontario and New Hampshire.

ECAC Preseason Picks

Three Buckeyes earned a spot on the 2009 Preseason All-ECAC Team and Ohio State was slated third in the league's preseason poll. Senior midfielder James Green, senior attackman Mario Ventiquattro and junior defenseman Matt Kawamoto all were selected in a vote by the league's eight head coaches.

In the coaches' poll, Loyola, the 2008 and '09 ECAC champion, was slated first with six first-place votes and 47 points, followed by Denver with 41 points and Ohio State with 40. Both the Pioneers and Buckeyes each received a first-place vote. The remaining teams were Fairfield at No. 4 (29 points), Hobart in fifth (27), Air Force at No. 6 (20), seventh-place Quinnipiac (12) and Bellarmine in eighth (8).

Flashback

The Buckeyes were 8-8 a season ago and reached the Great Western Lacrosse League championship game. The squad was 5-1 at home and finished 3-2 in conference play.

On the Sidelines

Head coach Nick Myers is in his second year at the helm of the Buckeyes. He is joined by Andrew Baxter, now in his second year at Ohio State. New to the sideline this season is Dave Dobbins, who came to Ohio State after serving as an assistant coach at Division III power Salisbury. Former Buckeye Anthony Kelly is in his first year as the team's volunteer assistant coach. Mark Bergey, the volunteer assistant a season ago, is now serving as the team's director of operations.

First of Three

Ohio State is scheduled to play in three venues in Columbus this season, hosting the first two (or three) games inside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center before moving outside to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The final two games, vs. Air Force and Bellarmine, will be played in Ohio Stadium.

A Helpful Bunch

The Buckeyes already have reached one of their goals, combining for more than 500 community service hours before the regular season even begins. The squad, which was fourth among Ohio State athletics teams last year with 389 hours, has volunteered in a number of areas, from helping World War II veterans, to planting flowers on the Ohio State campus, to reading to children through the 2nd and 7 Foundation.

A New Home

The Buckeyes are in their first season as a member of the ECAC Lacrosse League after the Great Western Lacrosse League was disbanded. Ohio State and fellow GWLL schools Air Force, Denver, Quinnipiac and Bellarmine join Loyola, Hobart and Fairfield in the ECAC in 2010. The league will not hold a postseason tournament this year, with the NCAA tournament automatic bid going to the regular-season champion. A postseason tournament will begin in 2011.

The Showdown - 2010 Edition

The third-annual "Showdown in the Shoe" features the Buckeyes taking on ECAC school Air Force in Ohio Stadium at 11 a.m. April 24 prior to the Buckeye football team's spring game. The event has set national lacrosse attendance records the past two years, with 30,192 in attendance at halftime last season. Advance tickets for the game are $5 each, with children 6 and under admitted free. Tickets for groups of 50 or more are $4 each and must be purchased in advance. On game day all tickets will be $10 (cash only). All seating is general admission and tickets include both the men's lacrosse game vs. Air Force and the football spring game.

Ohio State 2010 Outlook

The Ohio State men's lacrosse team, led by four returning all-conference players and returning seven starters, is set to battle through a tough 2010 schedule and a newly-formed ECAC conference.

ATTACK

The Buckeye attack will depend on some new faces in 2010 after the graduation of two-time All-American Joel Dalgarno, the all-time goal leader for Ohio State, and Jeff Ryan, who together combined for 110 points last year for the Buckeyes.

The top returnee is senior Mario Ventiquattro, a starter in all 16 games a season ago who was third on the team with 24 goals and 32 points. Junior Mike Pires had 19 goals and 26 points a year ago, starting nine games and seeing action in all 16. Other players back for the team and expected to make an impact are Mike Smail, a sophomore who played in five games in 2009, and junior Tyler Dolphin.

Newcomers to the lineup at attack are freshman Jeff Tundo, a native of Orchard Park, N.Y., and junior transfer Zach Rodgers, who spent the last two years at Massachusetts and led the Minutemen in assists in 2008 with 27.

MIDFIELD

Junior James Green, a two-time second-team All-Great Western Lacrosse League selection, will lead the first midfield, joined by newcomers Dominique Alexander and Logan Schuss. Green enters his senior season with 71 career points on 47 goals and 24 assists in 46 games. He had a 15-10-25 line last season. Alexander comes to Ohio State after a standout prep career at Baldwin High School in New York, while Schuss is a British Columbia native who attended Delta Secondary.

Zach Boyt, a junior who played in nine games last season, with two starts, should see playing time. He will be joined by Paul Beery, who was on the Ohio State squad in 2007, junior Jarred Bowman, who saw action in 10 games last year with two starts, and sophomore Eddie Bambino. the team's 2009 Outstanding Freshman award winner who had six goals while playing in 16 games (five starts). Freshman Dan Wertz, from Lititz, Pa., and Manheim Township High School, should see time in the midfield as well.

FACE-OFF

The faceoff X features two newcomers in sophomore Brandon McLean and freshman Trey Wilkes. McLean saw action in just one game a season ago, winning 2 of 5 faceoffs against Notre Dame in the GWLL championship game. Wilkes, from Ijamsville, Md., and Urbana High School, will push for playing time this spring.

DEFENSIVE MIDFIELD

Senior tri-captain Andrew Stimmel, who played in all 16 games a year ago, will lead the short-stick middies, joined by juniors Scott Lathrop and Bryce Woodson who both saw action in all 16 contests in 2009. Expected to compete for playing time are junior TJ Powell, who played in 10 games in 2009, and freshman Kevin Mack from Dublin, Ohio, and Worthington Kilbourne High School.

LONG STICK MIDFIELD

Leading the long-stick middies is sophomore Brock Sorensen who has made the shift from a short-stick midfielder. An invitee to Team Canada's try-out camp, he played in all 16 games last season and had four goals, three assists and seven points. Junior Conor David was a solid contributor to the Buckeyes last year and appeared in all 16 games. Senior Chris Lowery also will see time after missing time with injuries the last two seasons.

DEFENSE

Two 2009 All-Great Western Lacrosse League selections in Scott Foreman and Matt Kawamoto will anchor the Buckeyes at close defense. Foreman has played in 33 games over the past two seasons, with 52 groundballs. Kawamoto started all but one game last year and had 20 groundballs. Sophomores Keenan Ochwat (16 games played in 2009) and Joe Bonanni (10 GP) round out the defense.

GOALIE

In net, senior tri-captain Brandon Freeman, a second-team All-GWLL selection in his first year as a starter last season returns to lead the Buckeye defense. Freshman Ryan Brant from Silver Spring, Md., and DeMatha High School has had a great preseason and will work for time as well. Freeman played all but 30 minutes for the Buckeyes in 2009 and was 17th in the NCAA in save percentage (.567).

The 2010 Schedule

The 2010 Ohio State schedule features seven games in Columbus, highlighted by the third annual "Showdown in the Shoe" which features the Buckeyes taking on Air Force April 24 in Ohio Stadium in an ECAC games. Four of the team's non-conference opponents were NCAA tournament participants a season ago in North Carolina, Notre Dame, Villanova and Massachusetts.

The Buckeyes open the 2010 slate with a home game against 2009 Colonial Athletic Association champion Villanova Feb. 13, with the Wildcats, now members of the Big East, making their first trip to Columbus. After a game at Bucknell Feb. 20 Ohio State returns home for a game vs. 2009 ECAC tournament champion Massachusetts, now a CAA member, Feb. 27. It will serve as the first matchup between the schools.

The following week Penn State comes to town (March 6). The Nittany Lions, now members of the CAA, are the only other Big Ten school to sponsor men's lacrosse. The teams have met each of the last six years for the unofficial "Big Ten Championship."

A road trip to Robert Morris March 9 follows before a home game against Albany of the America East Conference April 13, the first game in history between the teams. Ohio State will then hit the road for five-consecutive games. The trip begins with a game at Notre Dame, the 2009 Great Western Lacrosse League champion, who now is a member of the Big East, March 20.

Ohio State opens conference play in the ECAC against Fairfield March 23, followed by a game at Quinnipiac four days later (March 27). April starts with league games at Loyola April 3 and Hobart April 10 and the Buckeyes return home to host Denver April 17, Air Force April 24 and Bellarmine May 1 in league games.

The final game of the season is May 8 at North Carolina in the first half of a home-and-home series between the teams.

Saw where OSU brought Detroit into town Saturday and won 16-7. Must have not been a sanctioned game, but a win none the less. UMASS game was canceled due to flight restrictions. Good to see the Buckeyes keeping sharp despite the cancelation.

Seems as if Ohio State is regressing, need to turn things around quick or else changes are needed, very shaky this year at all spots, coaching is very shaky. With some good freshmen play and good play from some players. But no excuse for this year, recruits are okay this year, just avg, not OHIO st like, but a well, guess ill just go along with everything and get caught up in the quicksand.

Poor showing at RMU. Kids look confused on O. Freshman look OK, but Myers is asking too much from them. A lot of older good kids not stepping on the field. Don't know what message that send to the rest of the team. Hope they turn it around against Albany.

If they can't get it together against Albany, it is going to be a very long season. Danes are struggling this year, even more so than the Bucks.

CBUSLaxer thank you I could not agree more, you play the best players, dont get ego or politics or some warped view of lacrosse get in the way.

Its absolutely disrespectful to the players who grew this programs to heights Breschi had it. Breschi is a great coach and had the program in top shape.

We had an easy schedule last year and only managed to go 8-8 and now 2-2 with two beatings from good teams. I will be looking at the Albany and Notre Dame games very closely, I want to see something out of this team, players and coaches.

Hoping to attend the Albany game, catch some rays, see some old friends.

Is it possible Myers is in over his head? OSU is not a small time gig. Wasn't he a volunteer assistant to Breschi only like four years ago? That's a big jump to the big time. Tough spot for "on the job" training. Could be a long year for the Bucks.

On the other hand, what does that say for the coach at RMU, who only in a few years ,has taken that program to from nothing to being very respectable?

It could be, that is what i am trying to figure out as well, but I think Nick is the right man for the job, always have. I would prefer every coaching staff to have professional players or very good college at the d1 level represented on the coaching staff. Its is different up in D1, it is not all about recruiting like it is in D3, where these three coaches came from. To assess a great d1 player you have had to play professional or been a good d1 player yourself, I would frankly love to see a top notch MLL player invited in to help Myers, i could not see the harm in that. Nothing like learning from the best!
I am going to give Myers the nod as the man for the job because Breschi always thought highly of him. He was a very successful college player and probably a successful person overall, so maybe he should look at all facets of his program and say hmmm are they having a positive or negative effect on the team.
See you all against Albany.
