Men's Lax ranked No. 8 in preseason poll

Football season ended on Saturday. Now it's time for some Lacrosse.

Princeton debuted at No. 8 today in the preseason poll released by Insidelacrosse.com.

What's their take on our upcoming season? We're glad you asked:

The Skinny: Season One of the Chris Bates era begins in New Jersey, but Bill Tierney left a pretty full cupboard when he exited for Denver. Young stars Jack McBride, Chad Wiedmaier and Tyler Fiorito have the Tigers looking at another NCAA run.

Princeton went 13-3 before losing in the NCAA quarterfinals to Cornell. The Tigers will open their season on Feb. 27 with a home game against Hofstra.

The Inside Lacrosse Top 10:

1. Duke
2. Syracuse
4. North Carolina
5. Cornell
6. Johns Hopkins
7. Maryland
8. Princeton
9. Notre Dame
10. Hofstra

It's not time for Lacrosse, you fools. It's time for Ice Hockey. Our team is really underrated / underappreciated on campus, and it's a real shame. Baker Rink is an amazing venue, Hockey is an exciting, fast paced sport (arguably more so than Football at this school, and it is definitely easier to watch than Lacrosse).

Go Tigers.
