Back To Work, Bulldogs Bringing ItApril 23rd, 2012 at 7:55 pm by Eric Murphy under From the Cheap Seats
- After a week in my home state of Minnesota I am still trying to knock out the cob webs and get ready to dive head first into baseball/golf/softball season. I admit I was completely cut off from all things sports except my constant checking of my fantasy baseball team. The good and bad news is that nothing really changed during my seven day sabbatical. Bobby Valentine still looks like he’d rather be putting on make up in an ESPN dressing room, the Bruins are back in their comfort zone on the brink of elimination, and most still think the Patriots will be an active trade partner come draft day.
- Another thing that hasn’t changed is how well the Bryant lacrosse team is playing. Some guys are simply winners and Bulldogs head coach Mike Pressler is exactly that. He won 69 games in five years at division III Ohio Wesleyan before bringing Duke to national prominence while winning 153 games in 16 years in Durham. His winning touch is now being felt in Smithfield. Bryant is in the national rankings for the first time ever and will take on Robert Morris for the NEC regular season crown later this week. I am no lacrosse expert but Pressler has to be considered one of the better coaches to grace the college game.
