It's been a pretty wild season in college lacrosse so far this year. Plenty of upsets, some up and down scores in the ACC that don't make a lick of sense, the Ivy League teams are all going to beat the piss out of each other, the Patriot League is still there lurking in the shadows, and we still have a few more weeks left of the regular season. For the most part you just never know what to expect heading into each weekend.
However...the one thing you can expect is that whoever is up next on Maryland's schedule is going to get their asses kicked. Because if there's one thing that has remained constantly since the beginning of the year, it's that Maryland is not only going to beat every team they go up against but they are going to make them regret the day they ever picked up a lacrosse stick for the first time in the process. The Terps are steamrolling everybody and it's not like they're Michigan for the first 7 games of their schedule and playing against schools that nobody has ever heard of. Maryland smacked the shit out of Virginia when they were ranked #2 in the nation. Last week they smacked the shit out of Rutgers when they were ranked #3 in the nation. They've had one close game all year against Notre Dame and then the other 9 have all been ass kickings. They've won their 10 games so far this year by a combined 87 goals. Moral of the story is that there is a non-zero chance they may just never lose a single game again as long as we're all living on this giant spinning rock. And if that continues to happen at least throughout Memorial Day? Well then we're watching the greatest college lacrosse team ever.
So on this week's episode of The Crease Dive we talk about Maryland looking like they're playing a different sport than everybody else, some other news around the lacrosse world including Ned Crotty's retirement, we previewed yesterday's Duke vs Virginia game where Duke came out and spanked the 2x defending champs, and wrapped things up with our picks and previews heading into a pretty light weekend of college lacrosse.
