ESPNU @ 9pm

Whomever we play, it will be another David v. Goliath game for the Raiders. Fantastic game vs. Syracuse, but we will be the underdog against a [likely] ACC powerhouse. The X factor looms large; Kinnealey was not up to his pre-injury heroics against the Orange and I don't see it changing in the tournament.

Bryant, High Point, Marist, Towson...don't see any of them being a threat. Not sure if the Ivy League will have 2 or 3, but it's more than the PL.

Not the matchup I was hoping for...would have preferred Maryland or UVA.

Any game is tough, but we clearly got no credit for our excellent game with Syracuse. Go 'Gate!,

There will be time to digest the bracket and our trip to UNC, but this is gonna be tough. Syracuse has a dream bracket IMO.

After watching the selection show, is there anyone who thinks one of the top seeds won't win it all? Just don't see how we can pull off an upset against UNC when we are 1/19 on faceoffs. Yes, anything can happen. Want to show we belong instead of being just glad to be there.

Hope we can make this NCAA appearance on a regular basis. With our recent winning seasons, we're on our way but are not quite the same caliber as the ACC. How long before we get there...and stay there, as a team or as a League?

BTW, the Inside Lacrosse bracket could not have been worse!

They didn't give us much "talk" on the ESPNU bracket show. Kind of skipped over detailing our season/strengths. After the Syracuse game I thought we would get more buzz. Guess it was because Quint wasn't at the Kerrdome last week.

It would be nice to pull off the upset of NC like we did to UMASS a couple of years ago in the 1st round, but it will be tough. Does anyone know the numbers on their faceoff man? No matter who they send out there, unless we have an amazing day at the X it's not gonna be easy.

Maybe the 5:15 PM start time will help us?

From LaxPower...hard to believe Walsh is not higher on this list, or that Thompson isn't #1 for Albany. UNC has #2, 6 & 10. Never say never, the Raiders will leave their hearts on the field. How can you not love the underdogs here?

Murphy stated his excitement for the new facility/locker rooms; hopefully a great recruiting tool for Colgate! Hope our NCAA trend will continue.

Loyola won it all and has fallen back to mediocrity. So hard for a team to stay at the top of the mountain if you're not from the ACC. Would love to know why guys like Abbadessa and Walsh chose Colgate over every other program with better name recognition and multiple NCAA titles. There is a division between the Ivies and the PL in lacrosse that we don't necessarily see in other sports. Hope we can close that gap.

Great Danes demolishing Cornell in the 2nd, 9-2. Albany could be the sleeper of the LAX tourney, if you want to call them a "sleeper."

Danes win 19-10 and game wasn't that close. UA looks like a FF team to me.
