Larry Wheeler, Brandywine High School football and baseball.  He beat the bag out of us, but it made us men and I love him for it.  Never got to thank him, I regret that.

Anyone else feel like the entire conference has a pretty sad OOC schedule?  I realize the committee doesn't give you anything for playing tough games despite what they say but this just seems like a step back from a few years ago.

Oregon is a tier 2 team at best, if you disagree ask yourself if you think there is any chance Oregon beats OSU.  Notre Dame is the only real high profile match up for the entire conference.  I would say there are only a few games past 1-8 that are worth watching.

Literally 1 blue blood for the entire conference.  Sad.

11W - Thanks for putting this together.

Gilman's a great school and a great team.  If he plays Lax at Gilman and sees the field he must be really good.  They had a great one get away between 8th and 9th last year.  He started at Calvert Hall as a freshman on attack.  Even among the elites there are a few at the top.  Right now everyone is looking up at Calvert Hall.

Agree re both college education and recruiting.  To get a kid from Maryland (where more men’s and women’s players come from than anywhere else) you need to beat tons of schools that are closer and have at least a comparable education.  You also need to consider that some schools are lacrosse schools, vs OSU where it’s an afterthought.
My kids go to school at a MD powerhouse where nearly every starter on both the men’s and women’s teams will play D1.  This year one went to OSU, the others went to Hopkins, Yale and Georgetown.
 Where would you go if you were from Maryland?  OSU will always be at a disadvantage to get these kids and the state of Ohio will not produce them.  In MD the best athletes play lacrosse first then filter to other sports.  In Ohio the best athletes have a pigskin or basketball in their hands.

Every year is supposed to be Michigan's year.  The reality is that in football OSU simply has better players, better coaches and has an "all in" mentality.

Michigan will never get us on a down day so they need everything to align just to be competitive.  There will never be a Purdue or Iowa type game against Michigan, they will always get full throttle and I love it!  

Never forget the 90's.

Good luck on that.  People would overthrow the government at that point as so many people would be decimated economically they would have nothing more to lose.

Count me in.
