Games Within the Game, Hopkins-Duke

A few things to maybe keep an eye on for the Hopkins-Duke semifinal... 1. Duke MF Ned Crotty vs. Johns Hopkins LSM Matt Drenan. Crotty won the matchup in the regular season: He scored three goals in the first half, all on roughly the same move. He went behind the...

If You're Watching, Navy-JHU II Edition

Some of the great books in recent times have been told from the perspective of different viewpoints--including As I Lay Dying by Faulkner and Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh. So it is with "If You're Watching." I try and tell what different strata of lacrosse viewers should keep an eye on--for...

First Look at Hopkins-Navy

Today we have insights from a Navy grad and a Hopkins grad on the Hopkins-Navy game Saturday. Oh, these guys also are a pair of Hall of Famers: former Navy midfielder Dick Long and former Hopkins goalie Larry Quinn. We are whimperingly grateful for their contributions and very much hope...

What Hopkins Did Different

TFBO2F noticed a few changes in Johns Hopkins in its 10-4 win over Maryland. John Jiloty at Inside Lacrosse has a good piece on this, too. 1.) Hopkins had worked on its clearing game. When they were attempting to clear against Duke, Hopkins looked like Carlito Brigante trying to get...

Sunday Links

Credit to Johns Hopkins for several good moves. As Coach Dave Pietramala recounted in his news conference on Saturday, University President William R.

Changes to Hopkins' Future Schedules?

Johns Hopkins Coach Dave Pietramala said today he wants to change his team's future schedules by adding games against smaller programs, possibly at the expense of at least one or two of the sport's heavyweights. The Blue Jays (3-5) have lost five consecutive games, the longest single-season streak since the...

Game Plan for the Rest of the Week

Apologies for not posting yesterday. Our computer was acting like HAL in the second half of "2001: A Space Odyssey." Though really, it was a strange day all around. We came back from running errands to see that the Liverpool-Arsenal Champions League match (soccer, not lacrosse) was tied at 1-1...

Over at Laxpower...

On the Division I men'sforums, a fan called "Flubber" (hope his last name isn't "Lang") has a pretty good take on Hopkins's problems. It all comes down to a lack of fire and productivity. I haven't seen these guys play up to their potential since the first half against Princeton,...

In Case You've Forgotten

To borrow a line from the Georgetown students' basketball t-shirts. A reminder of what Johns Hopkins looked like in its run to the national title last year. Needless to say, the body language is a lot different from what was on display in the North Carolina game on Saturday. The...

What's Wrong With Hopkins?

The Lighter Side

We will examine Johns Hopkins's four-game losing streak, among other things, in Week That Was, Part II. That's coming later today. For now, we think Hopkins fans can use a little mirth. When TFBO2F is feeling down, we turn to the great philosopher, "Blackadder." "This is a crisis. A large...
