Lacrosse is too active to be a season thread. The page count, especially on mobile, quickly becomes unreasonable. Also, it came up in the basketball thread, so...

Here's the video link for the Denver game. Doesn't look like you need to pay, and they archive the games. [denverpioneers.com]

EDIT: Whoops. missed that there was a signup/subscription.

So, we have different ethoses at work:
  • Andrew Dickson White: "Truth for truth's sake."
  • Lazy, Underpaid Intern: "The minimum effort needed."
  • Aspiring Corporate Magnate: "There's a sucker born every minute."

Clearly, A.D. White's ethos is not operative. The other two may be.

i don't mind that they don't say it on the schedule page - it's a simple link on a template - but the game preview should say it.

general observation, both teams having a few footing issues. clear weather seems like the turf shouldnt be slick
wings getting involved in faceoffs, Cornell holding their own and so far more groundballs than violation/push without possession calls

Miserable loss for the Big Red. Up 4 goals twice and outscored 5-2 in the 4th quarter. Beaten regularly at the face off X (only 15-37) Too many unforced errors in second half and too many undisciplined penalties (DU 5-7 with the extra man).
Let’s hope we don’t look back at this one at the end of season with regret.

quick note, a tough loss but lets not get down on the team too much
lost by 1 on the road to a team with 2 more games under their belt, our top faceoff man not on the field and a challenging officiating crew

I have great faith in the team and coaching staff
Tough loss, and hopefully not a major factor for late season PWR
Same as the hockey team, the margins can unfortunately be very thin for those at large bids

Defense was actually pretty good 6 on 6. The unreleasable penalties got us. And on the faceoffs we were pretty even when you subtract out all those with NO WINGS cuz we were 2 men down. ANNNND we were without out Cascadden, our best fogo, so we were going against one of the best in the country with our #2 and #3 guys. That was a very winnable game, even in spite of the FOGO situation.

To further bash the officiating, Michael Bozzi #5 broke his collarbone as a result of contact. No call....

I was at the game. I have never seen such bad officiating, from the perspective of calling or not calling penalties. They called the game like it was middle school lacrosse from what I could see. Has anyone ever watched a game with so many non-releasable penalties? Kirst's penalty was for unsportsmanlike conduct. I agree he should be penalized for mouthing off but non-releasable?

Denver scored 5 man-up goals, at least 4 of which were on the NR penalties.Even strength we were the way better team, especially given we were missing our best FOGO.

When DU beat Hopkins, I was impressed. Not sure I rate them as highly now that I see they likely get help at home from the west-of-the-Mississippi officiating.

I didn't see it but it sounds like a tough loss for a lot of reasons. I fully expect our guys to pick themselves up and recommit to great lacrosse.

I'm looking at the stats and one that stands out is the ground balls: 42 for Denver and 26 for Cornell. I'm curious if that stood out to people watching the game.

I'm not worried about this team scoring goals. I think our defense will determine how many games we end up playing this year.

Ground ball difference largely a result of faceoffs.

Especially faceoffs during the nonreleasable penalties. It is hard to win a faceoff when you only have one guy on the wing, or in the case of being 2 men down, NO middies other than the FOGO.

I thought the Hobart game production was much better after they got the PBP man's Mike fixed. The half field view was substantially tighter than the Lehigh game, there were some nice field level shots, and PBP was better at identifying players.

It would be interesting to see the 3 goals.

0ne that didnt cross the line. I never went and tried to rewatch

One that the FO man scored I think the backside judge ruled some kind of interference when the D slightly jostled with our trailing longpole.. Had not effect on the play

One that we scored and I think the call was in the crease, I replayed it from the TV angle it didnt look like he went in at all, he might have touched the line but you can now if you dont go into the half circle and the ball scores before he touches the line?

Not sure about today, but in the old days, if an offensive player flicks a blade of grass with crease chalk, he's in the crease.

Tough loss for Cornell vs. Denver, but the Big Red took their frustrations out on Hobart yesterday winning by a whopping 23-7. I think we can all agree Cornell lacrosse probably has one of the toughest schedules this season, but that's what it takes to eventually land in the Final Four or win a national championship. Regardless it's going to be a fun lacrosse season on the East Hill and come to Schoellkopf to support the Big Red!

Cornell clobbered Hobart by 16 goals Tuesday (final, 23-7) and it got me to thinking, Why are we playing such a poor team, maybe we should schedule another top ten or top twenty team. There's a number of reasons why:

* Hobart is good competition (most years), it's a day trip, it's midweek.
* We do win more often: 20 of 23 times this century, all but 18 times going back to the Ned Harkness era (he coached lacrosse, too, 1966-68). From 2000 to 2024, 11 games have been decided by 1-5 goals. The only blowouts bigger than this week date back to Harkness/Moran late sixties era.
* We're supporting New York State lacrosse and tradition: The 140 games between the two make it the most-played, annual rivalry. (Syracuse interrupted the 108-game series that dates to 1920 to play Princeton last year, now it's back to Cornell.) We've also played Albany, Army, Colgate, Albany, Stony Brook, Binghamton, Siena. Some rivals seem to rotate off, others drop completely if they aren't competitive such as Binghamton, last played 2018, all 13 games (2004-2018) were Cornell wins.
* We've already got five of our 13 games against non-league teams this week rated top 20 – Denver, Ohio State, Penn State, Syracuse, Notre Dame – and four Ivy teams. No Southern teams, tho.

Old-timer stuff: Richie Moran almost closed the rivalry, or said he wouldn't play again in Geneva, after the team got pelted with beer cans during the 1974 game. I was on the sidelines photographing and it was a little unnerving. But the series continued the next year. In Ithaca.

Triple-header home action for three top-twenty Cornell teams:

Men's Lacrosse hosts #20 Ohio State, 12 noon, Schoellkopf Field. (Temp 47, 35% chance of rain.)
Also Women's Ice Hockey hosts game 2 of ECAC quarterfinals against Quinnipiac, 3 pm.
And Men's Ice Hockey hosts RPI 7 pm, RS finale (the Friday game as pushed back to 7:30 but not Saturday)

Let's see if Cornell can shake off that loss at Denver.

Aren't Syracuse and ND Southern teams now?

As Stanford, Cal and SMU are now 3, 3 and 1 time zones removed from the location implied by Atlantic Coast Conference. I was thinking of the geolocation of the school's main campus. My bad. But thank you for not using a wry smileyface at the end of your comment.

It was implied.
