I agree with Duke winning, but I'm pretty confident that Syracuse will make it to the semis. And I don't think UMBC can beat UVA...but we'll just wait and find out.

UVA to UMBC is the only one top team I'm worried about the first round out of the big "four." For my entertainment value though I hope it's not going to be two upsets vs. one another in a semi. It was cool that Delaware made it last year but they sort of ran into a buzzsaw IMO, Alex Smith couldn't get it done against Peyser in that atmosphere. I dont know if I make any sense or am just rambling.

I agree about Delaware last year, as even though it was cool that a darkhouse team like that made it, their performance in the semis was less than impressive. However, I think that the discrepency between the top-level teams and the mid-level teams has shrunken dramatically. For example, UMBC, playing #2 UVA and annually just an average team in a weaker conference, was ranked as high as #6 at one point, beat Maryland, and played Hopkins to a one goal game. I would not be surprised for them to make a run. afro

Fields, you're too smart.

Yeah, I would not be surprised at all if UMBC disturbed the bracket this year, I mean they did last year as well. I'm just upset that at the NCAA D1 Level we still have to worry about paying for planes and driving distances, hopefully in a few years that won't be an issue for the sport.

I would not put it past Colgate to come through and throw down. With ND in the first round, and probably Syracuse in the second if they win.

They took Syracuse this weekend 12-11, I wouldnt put it past to play the same game, but you never know. Syracuse will most likely jump on them knowing they came in tough the last game of regular season.
