Monday Notebook: MCLA Division II
At the beginning of the year I posited that St. John’s was going to be more of an offensive team than its typical stingy defensive self. It made sense with what the Johnnies lost and had returning, but it turned out to completely wrong

May 2, 2011

The Morning Jac: Weekend Quote Dump
Here are some leftovers from the coaches and players I spoke with this past week that didn't make the original stories.

April 11, 2011
Monday Notebook: MCLA Division II
Let me be the first to congratulate North Dakota State for earning a bid to the MCLA national championships in Denver. The Bison needed to finish this weekend with a 2-1 record to have a solid shot at a berth, but they took all of the speculation out of it by upending No. 5 Davenport, 11-10, on Sunday morning to go 3-0.

April 11, 2011
Monday Notebook: MCLA Division I
One of the questions I was asked during my visit with the Collegelax.us radio show last week was what I thought would help the MCLA gain “legitimacy” in the lacrosse world. My response was that the association shouldn’t worry about legitimacy from the NCAA crowd.

The Morning Jac: Weekend Quote Dump
Here are some leftover snippets from some of the coaches and players I spoke with last week.

April 4, 2011
Monday Notebook: MCLA Division II
It’s funny how this game works. Just when you think you’ve got a good handle on a team, it blows that perception right out of the water. That’s what happened with No. 6 Davenport’s rout of No. 3 Dayton, 15-7.

April 4, 2011
Monday Notebook: MCLA Division I
Things didn’t get a whole lot clearer this weekend, that’s for sure. The only thing that we know is these Michigan weekends are turning into a house of horrors for the visitors. Or Michigan State.

April 3, 2011
Morning Jac: The Michigan Effect
If Arizona State is able to defeat Michigan State today -- no easy task, to be sure -- we’ll likely see one of the more peculiar trends in MCLA polling.

March 28, 2011
Monday Notebook: MCLA Division II
We’ve hit a lull in the D-II schedule, with many of the top teams idle or playing overmatched conference opponents. Things will pick back up on the weekend of April 9 when Davenport, Northern Colorado and Missouri State head to St. Paul to tangle with either St. Thomas, St. John’s or North Dakota State.

March 28, 2011
Monday Notebook: MCLA Division I
This is it. This weekend is the last, best hope to show us that Denver isn’t just a formality. Colorado State and Arizona State don’t have to win, necessarily; they have just to show a reasonable level of competitiveness with Michigan.

March 21, 2011
Monday Notebook: MCLA Division II
It will be interesting to see how North Dakota State finishes up its season. One of the many second-tier teams in the UMLL for many years, the Bison have ramped up their program -- and more importantly, their schedule -- this year.

March 21, 2011
Monday Notebook: MCLA Division I
Should we be concerned about No. 13 Minnesota-Duluth after the Bulldogs were swept for the second time in as many two-game road trips? For some teams it would be an issue, but these trips are extremely low-risk for Duluth.

The Morning Jac: Michigan's Tell-Tale Heart
It’s been thumping just beneath the floorboards of the Michigan athletic department for nearly a year now. It’s a rhythmic cadence that must have Wolverine men’s lacrosse coaches, players, fans and boosters holding their hands over their ears trying to silence the pounding.

The Morning Jac: Weekend Quote Dump
Speaking with various coaches over the weekend, I always have a pile of unused quotes and notes that are interesting enough to pass along, but not quite comprehensive enough for their own story.

March 14, 2011
Monday Notebook: MCLA Division II
The postmortem on the weekend in St. Paul will have to be in general terms because these three-day, three-game weekends sometimes require a little bookkeeping to get all the stats lined up. We do know that No. 4 Grand Valley State was obviously the biggest gainer.

March 14, 2011
Monday Notebook: MCLA Division I
At this point, no one believes that last year’s Sonoma team was as bad as the 2-10 record it posted. Unfortunately, even with the triumphant return of Doug Carl -- the architect of the Seawolves MCLA championship team -- it’s now a safe assumption that ‘Noma will not be a tourney team again this spring.
