Is anyone else surprised athe lack of transfers coming to Cuse for next season? I truly expected to see some high level D
Poles and SSDMs after the gaping holes last season.

Apparently Avilles was hurt most of last season hiding an injury ...he’s not Desrth, but will be an impact player , Beyond that we are far from elite there and I don’t see any big improvement at Close either, and no known quantity in the cage -
How could there be zero activity here after the Gait / Petro announcements ?

I checked in with some of my sources close in and they claim there are no hidden gems on the sidelines or RS in waiting ...

Barring a magical turnaround.. not seeing how things are going to improve here next season ..and the hopeful 2022 class are freshman in 2023 ..so what gives ?

The main problem is that there really weren't much in the way of high end poles and even less SSDM in the portal. There were maybe 2 higher end guys the kid from Nova who went to Maryland and the dude ND got and he isn't considered elite by any stretch. From an SSDM there really wasn't anyone out there period. Zinn from Hop is an option but Aviles Dami and Woody are all probably ahead of him plus the high end frosh SSDM who will be hear in the fall. Getting Clary and the Yale transfer on the field should help things but we could use another pole if one suddenly becomes available

Thanks Jeremy - I wasn’t aware that there so little in the portal..

As far as close, it will be very interesting to see what we do here. Dipp is out , Murphy ? And Horan.

All solid in moments but far from high end.

The only combination I can see is Kennedy. Cocammo (so?) and ? Murphy/Horan?

and then we are back to losing Kennedy in the middle of the field ..which will be serviced by Clary who think is really good but not Kennedy when he is on

SU could still bring in an LSM type as Will Rock is still in the portal and they have a guy like Drago who the previous staff was high on but was hurt by the lack of a true fall and pre-season. Assuming no additional transfers I would expect the close defense to consist of Kennedy, Murphy (if he returns) and then some combo of Caccamo/Hapney/Horan/or a Frosh. One of Hapney Jr, Kole, or Witherspoon could break out.

Clary assuming he is back to full health will likely start at LSM with Page and Drago in the wings and then potentially a frosh as I have heard good things on Rottura but gonna be tough for a true frosh to jump that many guys for PT. Petro may go with some guys that are a surprise to the fan base.

Likely to drop Kennedy down because of need but waste of his open field abilities especially as Gait seeks to get back to transitioning. One thing to drop a good lsm such as Firman but another to drop one with top speed who will be a PLL lsm, opposing coaches know impact so should Cuse , should have went after a Prybinski or similar quality in portal especially if DP return/or timetable is uncertain.Watching goalies such as Kirst, Rode, McElroy and many other goalies outlet to initiate transition then watching us swing ball back and forth between sidelines while Dearth, Kennedy and Aviles were open upfield was disheartening. Longed for Madonna's passing as well as Bomberry passing ball upfield off gb's which DP does fairly well. Offenses cant sink in as deep agaisnt teams that transition and good things tend to happen when defenses are unsettled . Dearth 0 impact was held off by limited outlets , avoid the same mistake . Both Katchurian and Thompson have the ability and willingness to outlet upfield off saves . Screw Rock , if they have to drop Kennedy then go with Clary who will be fine but prefer staff employing the strengths of their personnel . In any case, avoid jockeying any player back and forth . Put them in a position and leave them there . Disliked how Helmer value was diluted by doing so.

There were only real three transfers out there, I think, that are difference makers and they are all gone (Lulley, Khan and Pryblski). I doubt SU had any real chance at them. The guy that makes me wonder "what if" is Owen Murphy from Hopkins, would have four years of eligibility and SU needs more attackmen. Find it interesting that he went to Maryland and former OC Benson. Oh well. There are some SSDMs in the portal, including Harrison Bardwell from Cornell and Parker Alexander from UNC. On the LSM side, there is still Mo Sillah from Towson and Peter Rizzoti from Dartmouth. No idea if any of these guys would consider SU, but there are still names to watch.

I would prefer that SU only bring in guys that can add instant impact, there's not really a need to add more depth as the roster is plenty big. So I'd be more upset if they brought in transfers just for the sake of it. It felt like they did this last year with some of the additions. Plus as new coaches you probably want to show a little faith in the guys you inherit and make them feel wanted, over bringing in new guys just to add new faces.

Not sure what the defense will look like next year. Personally I think the more new faces the better. Pretty frustrating that we are still debating where Kennedy should play. I wish they would have found a number one close defender by now. Easier said than done. It looks like help will arrive in '23, but this year might be rough going. I have a little more faith in the SSDMs than some, I liked the way Olexo looked last year and some guys who probably weren't expecting to play got to see a lot time (Rosa, Woody, Olexo). Hopefully some of these guys improve, and it's been said but have to think Aviles has a bounce back year. There is some cause for optimism here.

Wambach... Rochester... related to Abby I assume

Mo Sillah always impressed me. Played with Epstein at Landon.

Is Max Rosa really a defensive middie or did he just play there out of necessity?

Out of necessity but the move maybe permanent.

I'm guessing the current guys might just be coached up a bit
