Good choice. Would have happened sooner if we'd gone final four. Maybe it was and just not announced. As a practical matter, how stealthily could Cornell have searched for a new coach outside Cornell and kept it quiet.

Kerwick's bio says he lives in Skaneateles. Unless he has an Ithaca crash pad, that's 40 miles each way each day. He needs to be driving an all-wheel-drive diesel. Or a Tesla with a charger block in Ithaca, too.

My first job after graduating from Cornell was near Elmira; my manager commuted from Scranton every day, 120 miles each way. Bought a Honda Civic just for his commute because it had really good gas mileage. I think maybe people are just accustomed to longer commutes once you get outside the Boston-DC corridor and similarly urbanized areas around the country.

Consider the opposite, that people in big urban areas are the ones more used to lengthy commutes by car or mass transit. To live in the burbs outside Manhattan and get to work, it's an hour door to door, or more. In rural areas with less traffic, such as Ithaca, you can reach affordable-housing communities 10 minutes from town. Several Cornell coaches live in Lansing and that's 10-15 minutes from campus. Going another 15 minutes doesn't lower your housing costs appreciably. Skaneateles is more of a Syracuse suburb. I could a faculty spouse with a special skill (or desire not to wait tables) who has to drive to Elmira or Syracuse for work, but that's not that common. Commuting from Scranton to Elmira sounds like an outlier case.

It's not that unusual for people in the NoVa area to commute 50 miles each way -- particularly if they come from central VA (think: Appalachia) and can drive 100 mph for the first 20 miles.

But 120 miles each way, every day? Your manager was either a liar or an idiot.

I used to work with a couple of guys who commuted from West Virginia (Charles Town area, I think) to Tysons Corner.

Once a year you see a story in Newsweek (maybe not recently) or NY Times about the quality of life of a dad or mom in the LA basin who gets up at 3 a.m. for a 3 hour drive to work, so they could live in an affordable house with a bit of land. Old cities with good mass transit - NY Boston DC SF Chicago - may be the long-term urban winners.

Neither. Older guy, owned his home in Scranton, job was a good fit for him after his previous employer (closer to home) closed their facility, but didn't want to relocate and uproot his wife or rent a small apartment to stay in during the week (I had coworkers who lived in Lock Haven who did that rather than move after Piper closed up shop there). Bear in mind that gas was cheap in the late '90s (I remember paying in the ballpark of $1.20/gallon) so a 240 mile round trip commute if you're getting 30 MPG highway costs you less than $10/day or $200/month; less than even the crappy apartment I lived in that was more like $400/month. (Leaving aside the other costs associated with the car for the sake of simplicity, which could of course tilt the balance.) It's a lot of time on the road, but better than uprooting or only seeing your wife three days a week I guess.

That's a fair point, but you're talking about longer commutes in terms of time that are still much shorter in terms of distance than what I mentioned.

We have plenty of people here in the Lehigh Valley who commute into NYC every day. In fact, there are regular buses from the Bethlehem Park-and-Ride into Port Authority every day.

Bastards are driving up the housing prices here.

That's about 50 miles. Charles Town is 15 miles to the west of my house; Tyson's Corner is 35 miles to the east.

That's still a bad, bad commute, though. 7 east to 50 east of here is a parking lot from 6-9 and 5-8. Commuting on off hours isn't horrible -- maybe an hour each way. That's basically my commute.

Wow. Even in Boston, 6 am is off-hours.

The traffic here doesn't really get ridiculous until 7:30, but then of course it's a parking lot until after 10.

He has a respectable point. Those of us that don't check in every day click on this thread to read about Cornell Men's Lacrosse 2015, not can-you-top-this gripes of traffic/housing expense. A couple posts? Sure- some are in fact fun. Repeated deadhorse- not so much.

Yeah, I suppose I could just go over to Laxpower, but the "7 new" signal always snags me. Maybe after the third response or so it should go over to John Spencer's place.:-)

I don't mind getting the Syracuse game out of the way, but you have to think that that's about the best way to put the Red in an uncompetitive position going into the game with Ivy practices starting so late compared to other teams.

Going back to 2009, they've opened against either Hobart or Binghamton to start the season, and generally don't play their first ranked team until they have a game or 3 under their belt. Might as well throw them into the deep end I suppose...

Two seasons ago, 2013. They served as the "home" team at the Meadowlands vs. Princeton. Last regular season game in Ithaca was 3/30.

Very detailed run-through of the schedule: [www.laxpower.com]

Interesting that 1) This is the first regular-season Albany-Cornell game ever, and 2) we have to go to Dallas, TX (SMU) to do it. The only other meeting was the memorable 2007 NCAA QF game in NJ.

Apparently we've played in Texas before, 2008 vs. Denver.

Of note, Cornell has a Dallas native on the roster, but it seems there was an incident while home for the summer: [www.ithacajournal.com]

Dunno. Starters apparently trailed 11-4 after three periods when the backups hit the field. Three starters didn't play: Hogan, Stevens, Huttner. That didn't help. Maryland had a big head-start with practicing. Weather in Ithaca this week will not be helpful.

Don't look now but brand new to varsity lax BU got votes in both polls.

They're 5-2, with wins over four teams with losing records plus Toothpaste (18-11). Losses were to Lehigh & Providence. Their Laxpower computer score is 93 (whereas ours is 98.9). Among the Ivies the closest teams in terms of the computer score are Penn (90.3) & Sucks (93.9).

But the computer score tries to guess what the selection committee will look for. BU's RPI is 44th (0.4720). (Ours is 2nd; 0.7004) The lowest of the top four Ivies is Princeton, ranked 16th (RPI = 0.5736), but the Penn is 40th & Dartmouth is 53rd (with early season losses at tOSU & ND while Hanover was still buried in snow).

In short, BU is doing quite well for its first year in DI, but don't bet on it beating Duke on 5/3.

Until this year, BU had more hockey rinks (2) than turfed playing fields (1). Now they also have an Astroturf field atop a parking garage. Astroturf is great for field hockey because the ball plays truer, and chews up everyone else's knees when you land hard. I don't believe there's a BU turfed indoor field in a city that just nine feet of snowfall. Agree that beating Duke is not likely,

According to weather.com, it is snowing right now. However, looking out my office window on the Ag Quad I see some blue sky and sun among the clouds. So who knows what the weather will be at game time. It is a little windy, however, with temps around 30.

Good thing it's blacked out on ILDN bang

Highlights: [www.youtube.com]

A mediocre packing, tbh. Just goals, no saves. No interesting defensive plays - strips or scrambles - and really no sense of the tension as the lead slipped away. But it is what it is: a hastily edited collection of goals.

Cornell outshoots Colgate 41-23, goes 16x23 on faceoffs, goes up 8-4 in the third, but Colgate goalie Brandon Burke was 16x26 on saves (62%) while Christian Knight was 4x13 (31%). Matt Donovan was 4-4-8 in a 10-goal game. We got lucky to get away with on OT win; Colgate's only lead was 9-8. Games like this, you realize the importance of a dominant faceoff man.

Let's hope Saturday's Penn game is better. After doubling Yale 14-7, Cornell felt like it had a legitimate shot at the final four. Now, let's hope Colgate was an aberration.

Cornell 10 Penn 9 (Triple OT)

Red led 8-3 five mins into second period; 9-4 at the half. Went scoreless until midway through the third 5-minute OT. Lintner! Whew.

It's the off season (hockey) and therefore time to get into pointless arguments/discussions:
"Doubling Up" is a rare and impressive feat for basketball. Earns the term.
It's pretty much meaningless for ice hockey, baseball and football.
Somewhere in the middle for lax but somehow seems to imply an overwhelming drubbing which isn't always the case.

Discuss (or not).

Awesome list. You didn't figure this out on a sheet of paper. It's depressing also in that Cornell almost has to win out (Brown, Princeton) to host the tournament. Almost impossible to count on Dartmouth beating Brown. Not impossible to see Harvard beating Princeton; the Tigers have been up and down.

See the past week's Inside Lacrosse columnist rating:
Quint Kessenich
10. Cornell — The Big Red lost at Harvard, their third setback of the year. The offense has gone cold. Too much reliance on Matt Donovan and Connor Buczek. Nobody else has stepped up after the top six. So Cornell gets held to eight and nine goals in their last two games. CU is shooting 27%; opponents are 30%. Look closer at CU’s shooting percentage the last four games: 24% vs. Colgate, 20% vs. Penn, 22% vs. Dartmouth and 23% vs. Harvard. The Big Red have won 66% of their face-offs. Six times this season, Cornell goalies have been less than 50%. Canisius and Hofstra are on tap this week for a team with a high RPI but fading momentum. [www.insidelacrosse.com]
... who also said Princeton is "in jeopardy of fading into oblivion" and "The [Brown] Bears were highly overrated based on lopsided victories against poor competition."

Easiest to just win out! That also gives Cornell sole possession of the official Ivy League Championship.

Brown will be desperate next week though. If they lose to Cornell, and Penn beats Dartmouth, Brown will be out of the ILT.

I think about Cornell's tendency to underperform in key games. As does every fan of every team. OTOH, early in the season when it looked as if Yale might be the class of the league, we hammered them 14-7.

Cornell moves up one spot to 9th in the April 13 media poll.

3 Maryland
4 Syracuse
5 Denver
6 Duke
7 Yale
8 Albany
9 Cornell
10 Virginia
Brown stands 14 down two spots after 16-10 loss to Yale. Princeton falls to 20 from 19 after lossing to Lehigh 16-15, beating Dartmouth 16-5. Of our competition, Colgate and Hobart also got votes.

[edit add]: USILA poll keeps Cornell 10th behind not ahead of Virginia. Figures, if this is the poll that always ranked Cornell in the Harkness / early Moran era below every half-assed Confederacy team and then, first time it's a playoff, Cornell wins.

I think this is clever. Penn is guaranteed an acc opponent and ACC5 is guaranteed a game despite missing their tournament. Theoretical boost to either team's tourney hopes. I'd rather sign for ACC5 blind most years than fill out the schedule with a canisius or similar.

Re: Cornell Men's Lacrosse 2015 - polls 4/20 Cornell 12 / 10

Media poll 4/20/15 drops Cornell 9 to 12. Brown up 14 to 10.

Top four-loss teams are 6 Duke, 9 Virginia, 11 Ohio State, 12 Cornell, 13 Georgetown (5 losses), 14 Princeton (was 20 last week, so look what a one-goal win over Harvard does), then 15-20 all 4 or 5 losses. Colgate 8-4 moved into the rankings at 18. NYS has teams at 3 Syracuse, 7 Albany, 12 Cornell, 18 Colgate, 19 Stony Brook.

USILA poll not in yet. USILA poll 4/20 vis Inside Lacrosse shows Cornell holding steady at 10 after the Brown debacle and (is this right?) and Brown falling from 12 to 13. It may be the old poll ran again but with the results fromlast week and upcoming games for week of 4/20 show. Note in the Upcoming Games notes it shows Cornell playing #14 Princeton and Princeton at #12 Cornell. That seems more like it.

Laxpower gives them a 100% chance of getting an at-large bid. I have no idea how accurate this is, just throwing it out there since we need something to talk about and polls are meaningless.

SOS is certainly helping us out this year.

Subtly, that link contains the "odds" for the Ivy Tournament via the AQ Prob. column:

1 Cornell: 32.53%
2 Brown: 30.03%
3 Princeton: 19.54%
4 Yale: 17.90%

Don't know if that's a KRACH style calculation.

Despite what some of the more cautious Big Red fans are saying, I think we're basically a lock at this point. I don't think that would be the case every year, but the fact of the matter is the Ivy was pretty clearly the 2nd best conference this year, with really poor out-of-conference showings by some of the other mid-tier conferences (Patriot, Big Ten, CAA, etc.). We have 0 bad losses, and more quality wins than anyone else on the bubble, even if they're not against the top 5.

Yeah, but getting and not getting screwed by the seed are two different things.

Just win, baby, just win!

Well that is a different story. I think the absolute best case scenario is that we win the ILT and host Colgate in the 1st round as the 7 seed. A medium case scenario is losing in the first round of the ILT and going on a road trip to, say, College Park (AGAIN). Worst case scenario is probably winning the semifinal matchup and/or the championship and being 'rewarded' with a home game with Albany.

And after yesterday's results, they now have an 80.92% chance of receiving an at-large bid. So I guess that 100% from earlier in the week wasn't really 100%.

Wonder what it is after today's debacle. Three goals in three periods against a porous defense? With five returning players in the offensive end, two of whom are All-Americans, you'd think they'd have a consistent offense. Long scoring droughts are the norm this year. Offense is stagnant with little movement and seemingly little purpose much of the time. I'm not convinced about Kerwick. He's wasted a lot of senior talent this year.
