Re: Those times, and those teams have nothing to do with


Hoos have some excellent players but depth is still an issue at most positions. Tops in the country at all positions - doubt it, only if we see some players develop tremendously through the year. First midfield with Conrad, Dox and Moore may be among the best but even there you're knocking on wood, hoping Dox can repeat his outstanding 1st year, Moore is as advertised, and all stay healthy. Second midfield all bets are off - some guys with excellent athleticism, but there are big questions there. Attack returns two big contributors from last year - D'Amario and Kraus - big questionmarks after that. SSDM is a big question after Dziama - there's potential there, but development and depth are big Qs. Defense has good talent but big questionmarks after the starters. Thompson turned in a promising first year and showed potential, but tops in the country sounds like a risky pick. Facing off, the best three units in the country may be in the BIG @ Rutgers, PSU and UMD (in no order), and ACC may not have a unit in the top 5.

Not that I mean to talk the team down - it looks to me like Lars is pushing in lots of ways to improve the program. It's just not going to happen overnight.
