Delaware is an excellent team, especially on the defense. This is a small sample size (I watched one game against GTown), but here is what I saw. Cornell will have to work hard for goals. Delaware kept a high-powered GTown to 9 goals, Penn to 8 (earlier this year), and Princeton to 10. They play disciplined lacrosse and they time their slides extremely well, as one would expect from a DeLuca defense. Their long poles are skilled. They will pick your pocket and take away the ball, esp. a guy named Owen Grant. And they don't make a lot of mistakes.

mike1960

I'm not any good at predicting wins and losses, so I won't try. This is clearly a team that Cornell can beat, but Delaware was incredibly impressive in their win against GTown.

Thanks for the analysis, Mike. Delaware seems strong and I am spooked by that 10-9 score over Georgetown. If we can beat them it will have solved some of the 10-9 juju in my mind.

Does anyone know where you can find the highlights of the Ohio State game? The "highlights" link on cornellbigred.com does have footage from the game set to bad music, but I was looking for highlights from the broadcast.

It was an obvious and cheap shot but the layup was uncontested. And it was Ohio State. The Fortune 1000 Big 10 school that took in $230 million in revenue in the last pre-pandemic year.

eLynah castigates members for, say, publicly wishing in the third period that Andy Iles completes the shutout. So Thread of DESTINY is an affront to the woofing gods and to the all-caps police. But, heck, it's just sports. And yet, here we are, one game removed from the final four, either that or the seniors knowing a week in advance they will attend graduation in person. Cornell was helped immeasurably by Delaware taking down Georgetown last weekend. I can almost taste East Hartford, just as I can almost taste the gods of fate letting a lower-ranked team pull off a second upset, under an ex-Cornell coach with a grudge. This should be fun. It feels as if Cornell is playing with house money, us starting the year ranked 15th (below). LGR!

Richie, I hope you're looking down on us. It's good to be here.

Syracuse, Army and Lehigh all rated above us (pre-season) underperformed Cornell; look how low (lower than Cornell) Princeton was rated and Ohio State was in the also-mentioned category. I think Virginia was #1 only in the pre-season, then #2 Maryland took over.

In Cornell's favor, an 80-1 took the Kentucky Derby.

I don't know about getting 'helped' so much by Delaware. Georgetown deservedly was highly rated because they had only one loss, but they went 1-1 vs Princeton and Penn, just like Cornell, and Richmond was the only other tournament team they played. They did not blow any games against bubble teams (like Cornell did vs Army), but I think both Georgetown and Rutgers may well be overrated.
Delaware looked very good, with a really solid defense. I am not convinced they will be an easier opponent than Georgetown would have been.

Agree. Better to have had the target on Georgetown's chest, not ours.

The glass is half full: At least we don't have to play Syracuse.

Meanwhile: Paging Gavin Adler (blue-and-yellow #1 is Delaware's JP Ward, 71 points on the season).

And get a great education. DeLuca speaking about Richie Moran, “He believed in me and gave me an opportunity to be a part of a special tradition-rich program and get a phenomenal education and that changed my life.”

The article got one fact wrong: Ben DeLuca was a biochem and nutrition major, not a business major. But this demonstrates another benefit of a Cornell education -- access to a vast network of alumni who can help you get a job on Wall St. if you want one.

Yes. As is IL scoreboard, likely based on the NCAAs.

Halftime 5-4.

Jesus fuck what a drive by DE. That was like Syracuse in the game not to be named.

I'd be lying if I said that didn't cross my mind.

East Hartford is less than 2 hours away. If only I wasn't scheduled to be at a hockey tournament in Philly that night.

Come on, early game!

There really wasn't a screen set. I guess the ref called interference on Licciardi for preventing the defender from getting to Kirst? Licciardi did not actively impede the player. When the ref sees the video on this one, I'm sure he'll want it back.

Inside Lacrosse article on the Cornell/Delaware game

Inside Lacrosse
"First thing I'll say… It's great to be here,” Delaware coach and Cornell alum Ben DeLuca said to open his team’s postgame press conference, an homage to legendary Cornell head coach Richie Moran, who coached DeLuca as a freshman and died on April 24.


That's pretty classy from DeLuca.

Hmmph. I thought DeLuca was trading on the trademark of his old not current school. But I suppose "voted best party on the Northeastern Seaboard" doesn't have the same ring.

I think Ben DeLuca has just as much right as Connor Buczek or any other Cornell lax player to quote Richie Moran. After all, he played for the guy, he coached at Cornell for several years, including his stint as head coach, and he interacted with Moran on a regular basis during their years at Cornell. In his interviews he has always given Richie credit for shaping his coaching philosophy. Now if Jeff Tambroni led off a post-season press conference with the comment, that would be different.

Completely agree. His team just lost to Cornell, yet he paid homage to a legendary Cornell coach who had just passed away.

In an interview before the game he had been asked what it felt like to be playing against his alma mater. He said something like, "I love Cornell, and I love Cornell lacrosse. I always will. Coach Moran changed my life: I went to Cornell, got a great education, and became a lacrosse coach. But this game isn't about me."

DeLuca got shafted at Cornell, perhaps deservedly so. But he's spent his time in purgatory, and now he's building a very good program in Delaware. It's hard to imagine he hasn't learned some lessons from all this. He didn't have to say anything about Cornell, the university, or RM. But he chose to open with this.

Time to cut him some slack.

Rentschler background info says "grass field."

Info lacking on which side of the field or which sections are Cornell for Saturday. Also which is the parking area for the Cornell-sponsored (BYO food) tailgate.

Rentschler buy-tickets landing page suggests majority of sections have limited or no availability. Hard to believe it's close to sellout. In the years of 40K+ attendance in Baltimore or Philadelphia, the quarterfinal sites often drew 10,000-plus). Semifinal attendance at Hofstra was announced as 5814 (Shuart Stadium capacity is 11,929 and in previous year, pre-Covid, mid-teens, it was close to sold out), at Columbus 3684 (Ohio Stadium capacty is 104,944).

Oh, yeah, the lower cost seats are $26. Plus $13 handling fees. Where's an attorney general when you need them?

Who's going to the NCAA lacrosse finals weekend?

We are in Lake Placid for the Memorial Day weekend. Plans are to watch the Saturday at WiseGuys, the sports 100 yards downhill from LP Miracle on Ice Rink. If Cornell advances, I'm going +3 (3-1/2 hour drive). From about age 40 onward, it's become clearer and clearer: If Cornell makes the finals, go! You might not live long enough to see the next one. Plus I saw 1971, 1976, 1977.

Rentschler background info says "grass field."

No quotes needed. The Rent often hosts US National Soccer games, both Men's and Women's teams. It should still be grass. Never mind Pine Tree Road, imagine if you had to drive 30 minutes on an interstate to go to sporting events like UConn students do.

This is bizarre for me. I worked for 13 years (leaving in 2018) in a crumbling office park less than 3 miles away (so not Pratt & Whitney) from Rentschler. I could bike to the stadium in about 20 minutes from my home across the river. It was always a better choice for me to bike since the car traffic access in and out of the former airfield is so horribly mismanaged. Be prepared to sit around in your idling car as everyone is funneled into 1 or 2 entrance/exits depending on what highway you're coming from. Heck, just plan for a post-game tailgate while the lots empty. I was once leaving a concert and listened to an entire hockey period before getting out of the parking lots.

While I'm still undecided about going, I could provide any info about the area if anyone wants. I love Hartford like a 2nd home (yes, seriously), but most people here would feel most comfortable in the posh shopping/dining area of West Hartford Center, or for a more "New Englandy" feel, go to Glastonbury or Old Wethersfield. Nearby Manchester has all the chains (hotels, malls, big boxes) you might want. Just don't say you're "in Hartford" unless you're actually in Hartford city limits. The old racist tropes and donut effect is strong there. People "west of the river" tend to shit on the towns "east of the river" for some reason, but just wear any Whalers gear and you'll likely make friends. I'd like to say the area around the stadium and the city of East Hartford in general has anything very worthwhile, but it really doesn't, and that's too bad since that's what most fans visiting for the first time will take away. Other than the stadium there's a huge Cabella's plopped in the old airfield, and that's about it besides the stark Pratt & Whitney (now part of Raytheon) campus.

I just went onto the ticket sales page and there are still a crap-load of seats in the upper deck. Plenty of seats behind the goals, too. Monday looks similar.

I'm driving up Saturday morning and staying with family in suburban Boston for the weekend. If we win Saturday, I'll buy a Monday ticket then, and go to Monday's game on the way home.

I figured out what's going on with ticket availability, I think. The site seems to be showing very different availability depending on which link you click to get to it. This link shows almost no seats available. This one shows many. There must be something going on in the parameters of the first URL that is filtering out available seats for some reason. There are also tons of tickets available on the usual resale sites, so I'm curious to see what the actual attendance is. (According to the Cornell ticket site, the official Cornell section is 102.)

I love Hartford like a 2nd home (yes, seriously), but most people here would feel most comfortable in the posh shopping/dining area of West Hartford Center, or for a more "New Englandy" feel, go to Glastonbury or Old Wethersfield. Nearby Manchester has all the chains (hotels, malls, big boxes) you might want. Just don't say you're "in Hartford" unless you're actually in Hartford city limits. The old racist tropes and donut effect is strong there. People "west of the river" tend to shit on the towns "east of the river" for some reason, but just wear any Whalers gear and you'll likely make friends. I'd like to say the area around the stadium and the city of East Hartford in general has anything very worthwhile, but it really doesn't, and that's too bad since that's what most fans visiting for the first time will take away. Other than the stadium there's a huge Cabella's plopped in the old airfield, and that's about it besides the stark Pratt & Whitney (now part of Raytheon) campus.

The traffic on 84 from West Hartford through Hartford can be a slog, though I’m not sure if the holiday weekend would mean this is lighter or heavier than usual.

The Wadsworrh Art Museum in Hartford is quite good (and the art museum in New Britain is decent as well). If you’re a basketball fan, it’s a short trip up to the Hall of Fame in Springfield. I haven’t lived in the area for many years, but there’s enough to keep you occupied on Sunday if you’re staying for the weekend.
