I'm kind of torn between [No. 2] Notre Dame and Rutgers, but I have to go with Rutgers right now after more thought because they don't have a loss. They've beaten some pretty good teams. They've beaten [No. 8] Army and [No. 13] Princeton. Princeton's losses right now look pretty good, don't they? They've lost to Rutgers and Hofstra, and they smoked Penn this past weekend, and they smoked Johns Hopkins. I've watched [Rutgers] on tape a few times, and this team is legit. They haven't just beaten up on some inferior opponents. The way they play, the style, how athletic they are, they're super fun to watch. They press out on defense, the kid [junior Max] Edelmann in goal has an incredible first step. And offensively, they're hitting on all cylinders with two-way midfielders and a really skilled attack led by [junior attackman] Jules Heningburg. I just think that this Rutgers program now has an identity. Coach Brian Brecht has been able to find the diamond in the rough-type recruits. He knows who he's looking for, they all fit in his system. And keep in mind they're missing four top-end players. [Sophomore Zackary] Franckowiak who was an All-Big Ten Tournament player as a freshman short-stick defensive midfielder, is on a Mormon mission in Russia right now. [Sophomore Garrett] Bullett, the long-stick midfielder from Utah, is out for the season with an injury, and the same could be said for [redshirt sophomore attackman] Adam Charalambides, the Big Ten Freshman of the Year, and [senior] Christian Trasolini, one of their top midfielders. And they're all coming back next year. So this team isn't only built for this year. Next year, on paper, they're going to be incredible. I just think that Brian Brecht has figured this out, and it just tells you that in the sport of lacrosse with the way that the sport recruits, patience is key.
