Harvard 2010

New postby The_0 on Tue Oct 27, 2009 5:12 pm

Never been much specific talk about Harvard on these boards, but it does seem like there is a buzz happening up in Cambridge. This will be Tillman's third year, and let's see if he can take them beyond being more than just relevant.

Since Tillman's arrival, they have become fixtures on IL's recruiting publications. Education aside, Harvard is really becoming an attractive place to come if you are a young lacrosse recruit. They now have full use of Harvard Stadium, which they never had before, including night games. They changed those mud pits behind the stadium from dirt to 5 or 6 Fieldturf fields.

Will be interesting to see how they do this year, with their O coming back, and most of the top ranked D in the nation last year moving on.

A recent an interview with Coach Tillman:

It will be interesting to see what happens in what is shaping up to be a wide-open Ivy League. The addition of the tournament and the off-season coaching changes means that everyone's a contender. I think there will be a lot of parity this year as harvard should begin challenging cornell, princeton, and brown for the top. Dartmouth looks to be strong too with Towers now at the helm. I don't see any team going undefeated in the league.

I think that they've really got a chance to win the Ivy League this year. With the coaching change at Princeton and the graduation at Cornell, the league seems to be a tossup this year, with Brown and maybe Dartmouth in contention as well. I agree that I don't see anyone going undefeated, but I think as far as returning talent goes Harvard might have the advantage over the other contenders. Can Tillman put all of this highly rated talent together and create a winning team, and can they replace what they lost on defense and in goal? I certainly expect this Crimson team to be in the NCAA tournament, at the very least.

2010 Schedule has been posted http://www.gocrimson.com/sports/mlax/2009-10/schedule. New additions Canisius and Colgate. Duke and Georgetown plus the competition in the IVY should make this a tough schedule.

Biggest ??? for this team have to be on defense and in goal. They have a ton of young athletes on defense but it will be very difficult to replace the experience lost. Any news on who will take Pike's place in goal?

Offense was much better last year and should keep improving.

I think that Tillman has instilled a great team defense concept and brought toughness to Harvard. He has done a great job recruiting. The question IMO is do they have enough depth?

Looking forward to a great season up in Boston this coming spring.It's obvious the great job Coach Tillman and his staff have been doing not only recruiting but developing these men into fine lacroose players. Inside lacroose mag. ranks his freshman class third in div 1. That alone will inspire this class to reach high in its expectations on the field. Dont be surprised if many of them see the field very early in their careers . The team seams to be very deep at the middie position with the new freshmen and the attack is losing no one there.Look for great play from the defense end as any one of those guys will run down and beat you. Having witnessed the fall ball games the goal will be taken good care of possibly by the freshman kid from baltimore. LET'S GO CRIMSON

Question for the Harvard-Knowledgable: who does Harvard have for FOs? Is he (are they) any good? This is a team with a lot of talented players and good team defense, but they still need the ball. Any help?

Given the Ivy FO guys that graduated...Lynch, Glynn, Berg, Disceplo, etc....the HU platoon may be the best the Ivies has to offer in 2010. Could be easy pickins for them. Not a strength of the league at all.

Is Frocarro from Princeton healthy and playing? If so, he will be one of the best in the Ivies.

Re:The Harvard - Long Island connection.

The scuttlebutt here on Long Island is that Steven Jahelka and Brian Fischer verballed (if that's a real word) to Harvard/Tillman.Both are rising Juniors and were standouts on the undefeated LI Champion Garden City Football team.In addition,word has it that 2 Juniors from Chaminade,Mahon and Thornton,(both of whom live in Garden City),will be heading to Cambridge as well. It's interesting to note that The Frisbie Family Head Coach for Harvard Men's Lacrosse endowment is funded by a former Garden City HS graduate who played Lacrosse and Football at Harvard.

There may be a Junior middie from Cold Spring Harbor who'll be heading to Harvard along with the four guys mentioned above but that's just a rumor.

Harvard currently has 11 LI players on this year’s roster including last year’s top 3 point guys. Oh yes…… Harvard A.D. Bob Scalise played his high school lacrosse at Uniondale,which is another town on Long Island.

Lot's of "stuff" can change over the course of the next 2 years and there are no guarantees that any of these 5 willl end up at Harvard.However.........

There's another GC kid going up to Harvard;Mariah Pewarski.She's an AA in both field hockey and lacrosse but will stick (no pun intended) to lacrosse in college.

The Harvard-Yale Pandora's Box has been officially opened for the 2,176 th time.BORING.Anyone else sick of the debate that's been played out many times in song,story and legend?The schools these kids attend are right up there with Harvard and Yale's feeder schools e.g. Exeter,Groton and Hotchkiss.Chaminade is a very select institution with rigorous standards.The other folks mentioned in these posts attend public schools that maintain some pretty high standards as well.

Congratulations to these young 'uns.

But High School Academic standards for incoming lacrosse players are not the same as those for the real students...they get a big break to play.
