Both JHU and your concept of timeliness appear to be OVERRATED.

Yes, Johns Hopkins is so overrated. They only made it to the national championship game. What a joke of a team.

Luther, maybe this will suffice:

Thank you Marco for providing the link. I left the Washington Post last week and am working for Inside Lacrosse now.

The Blue Jays had a nice run in the second half of the season, are well coached, and had a very good win in the NCAA semifinals.
I generally agree with what the former-Post employee, Swezey, wrote on InsideLacrosse.com (link above).
But, as Al Smith used to say, "Let's look at the record"
I wrote that J.H.U. was OVERRATED, in PART because they lost SIX (6) games;
to Syracuse (twice - one time at Hopkins, blowing a 3 goal lead in the 4th qtr.), to U.Va. (which split with 'Cuse), to Hofstra, to North Carolina, and to Duke.

The 2008 Jays were out-played three times. UNC (when the Heels were hot), Duke (in the regular season, which they avenged in the semi-final), and Syracuse (in the finals). They had three OT losses (Syracuse, where they blew their lead as Peyser cramped up; UVA Away; and Hofstra Away). Over the course of the season, they could have been ranked anywhere, but at the end of the season, a fair-minded ending ranking is somewhere between 2 and 4. If they were so over-rated, then why was their semi-final victory of Duke a huge upset?
