Syracuse is #1 in both the media and coaches' polls, receiving 13 votes in the media poll and 6 in the coaches. And as for the Big East "dumbing down" our schedule? We're 3-1 against the top 5 in the media poll (the coaches put Denver at #6 and Maryland at #5) and 7-1 against the top 10 in both polls.
Marquette will join the Big East Conference in men's and women's lacrosse beginning with the 2012-13 academic year. After a season as an independent, the Golden Eagles will become Big East Lacrosse's eighth men's school and 10th women's program.
Does this mean Syracuse will get one less Out of Conference opponent in 2012?
