  1. Just sayin says:

    Cuse has been pointing to this game since last May. They should win big.

  2. Fox Lax says:

    SBU Vs. Virginia at 12noon on the Island and the Bratton Brothers didn’t make the trip. whats the story??

  3. Elephant Man says:

    Do your thing JoJo!

  4. D-Pac says:

    Could get ugly for Army. JoJo scores at least 4. Cuse by at least 8, not suprised if double digit win.

  5. Lax n stuff says:

    I have Cuse winning 12-6.

  6. BigBadBear says:

    well, to me that was an ugly win for ‘cuse…just like last week, they need to play 4 quarters…jo jo brilliant, but to me, shot a bit too much..everybody wants to shoot on this team, and they are great, but sometimes you need to grind out a goal and a pocession..keough needs to get way more touches than he had tonight..

    • slacrosse says:

      Agree. Also Cornell plays Army this weekend. They could very well have their hands full with the Black Knights. Their FO play has been quite poor and only 25% vs. Hobart! I assume they can get away with this again vs Binghamton but vs Army?? A totally different story.

      • BigBadBear says:

        is your rye kid getting any time as a FO guy? sounds like they could use him

        • slacrosse says:

          According to box scores, barely any so far. He did miss Fall Ball recuperating from surgery. Think its a “freshman thing” for now.

          • slacrosse says:

            Actually none in their 1st game but got a few in a pre-season scrimmage.

          • BigBadBear says:

            yeah, he will get there..they also changed the FO rules this year, which I like, makes for a fairer game, but it probably takes some getting used too

            Faceoff McCormack, Cole vs McDonough, Kevin won by COR, [15:00] Ground ball pickup by COR McCormack, Cole.

            Faceoff McCormack, Cole vs McDonough, Kevin won by BING, [01:25] Ground ball pickup by BING McDonough, Kevin.

            That’s in the Binghamton game. He was 1/2
