A List of Future Losers

The Syracuse Athletic Department recently released the 2006 Men's Lacrosse schedule. The list of potential victims is littered with many familiar faces, but includes a few fresh ones as well.

[Thoughts]
If this schedule isn't the toughest in the country, it's certainly going to be amongst the most difficult. With road games against Hopkins, UVA, and Cornell, the Orange have their work cut out for them if they expect to garner a high seed for this year's post-season tournament.

Also, Syracuse has a brutal stretch of three games in seven days starting with their April 8th game against Princeton. With two out of those three games on the road (including a trip to Ithaca where Syracuse has been snakebitten for about five years now), the Orange will have to fight off fatigue as they battle relatively worthy opponents.

Finally, it's interesting to see Colgate on the schedule this season instead of perennial opponent Brown. The Post-Standard noted this development in a recent story and it can be found here.

    I think talking about "familiar faces" in a lacrosse preview strikes me as kind of redundant. Here's a hot tip: Princeton, Syrcause, Johns Hopkins, UVA- one of 'em is probably gonna win. Thank god for the white boy prep school sports. At least we have SOME championships to lord over VT.

    Can't forget about laughing at the poor and oppressed.

    We're good at that too.
