Newsday is a joke in terms of HU, and a complete trash biased outlet. Their website even annoys the hell out of me forcing people to log in to view full content. I'm over them, and rarely ever visit. Let them live in HS land and continue their bush league level despite being in one of the most densely populated regions in the nation.
I guarantee there is not a single other major paper in a market with 3 million plus people that spends half their sports coverage on HIGH SCHOOL. They're weak.
They do it because that's the only reason anyone bothers to read it. That should tell them something. I get it, there is a market for that. However, at their level they should be focusing covering LI athletes BEYOND the HS level - showcase collegiate and pro careers, take it up a notch. They should create a spinoff outlet that focuses on HS and other low level stuff... like SBU.
Newsday itself should highlight higher levels, and the PRIDE of LI, the regions true
D1 team. Until then I hope everyone on this board and otherwise is boycotting their nonsense as much as possible.
As for lax, well even I can't fault find a team that just broke a school record! I mean I know they are having trouble closing out, that is an ST trademark unfortunately, so should be no surprise. I am hoping and praying that one day they are going to mature past that as a program. But as HUSID mentioned, at least they are HOLDING ON ... so far. And that is a real improvement.
Agree, Stu, it cannot continue if they really want to prove their top 10, championship level ranking and worth. ST did state as much in the video. Need to play all 4 if you want to run with the big dogs when it matters most.
7-0 is 7-0, and there are only 3 other undefeated teams in D1. Take that and run for sure. Congrats to them on the big start. A LOT more still to prove. Like I said, ST and this program need to show their salt on 5/6. THEN we can talk real lax worthy of HU's tradition.
