Three Patriot vs. ACC lacrosse games played today (Saturday 5/2), all at Patriot facilities: Virginia Tech at Navy (WLax), Notre Dame at Army (MLax) and Syracuse at Colgate (MLax). All three broadcast live on CBS Sports.

But . . . no mentions of the Patriot League at all. Lots of hype about the ACC but the broadcasters referred to the Patriot teams merely as playing in their "conference tournament" or being "conference champions" - not "Patriot League Champions." There was a considered effort not to mention the PL at all. They emphasized the ACC over and over again - and these all are PL home games.

All Patriot League-related banners and signs appear to have been removed from each of the three PL home stadia. And the kicker - get this - the Patriot League logo actually was scrubbed from the Andy Kerr Stadium turf. I kid you not. There's just a blurred rectangle where the PL logo had been.

WTF????

There is a pale area on each 25-yard line. Is that where the logos were? Very odd.

Pretty lame - wonder if that is an NCAA thing and its equally applied to a game at ND or UNC or Princeton or does the NCAA go weak in the knees for the larger conferences?   If its an evenly applied rule I guess I have less of a beef with it.

I don't believe there were any team or conference logos in the basketball tournament sites.

Maybe I'm wrong but I think this was a regular-season game even at this late date. I think Gate and Syracuse do that.

You are correct - these all were regular season games today. NCAA MLax tournament selection day is Sunday 5/3. The selection show is at 9:00 PM on ESPNU.

I really would like to know who made the PL pull down the banners - both PL banners and member school banners - and told Colgate to scrub the Patriot League logo from the Andy Kerr turf. Insiders, is there any way to find out? CR, if you're reading, do you guys at Colgate know anything about it? This happened at three different PL home lacrosse games today.



EDIT - Syracuse HC John Desko went out of his way to mention the Patriot League four or five times in his post-game interview.  I guess CBS couldn't really turn off the microphone . . .

They were all over the place. Scorers table banner, game program.

I was responding to the logos on the turf being scrubbed.
