When I see a 20 min video on a site, I play it right away, because I’m fully aware of letting something sit and load…

Another sick vid - keep them coming!

Coaching Philosophy

Even though I am a UVA fan, this video brought a new perspective to this sport. My hat is of to Coach Pressler because I do not know if put through a test like the entire scandal and the drama that ensued, if I would be able to come out on top, as well as do what he is doing at Bryant. All the best to Bryant and GO HOOS!!!!

This video is amazing, it defines all sports. The ability to face adversity, new challenges, bettering yourself and the bond that is made on and off the field. I always had respect for Coach Pressler but this video made that respect go through the roof. Hes an amazing coach and it looks like hes an even better guy, im a Duke fan and all but what they did to him is something nobody should go through. I hope they have a great season and look forward to seeing how they compete in D1. Its just a shame they cant go to the tournament til 2011

Duke Under The Bus
    by (#127752) on 2/05/09 @8:02AM
Those are some pretty unvarnished comments by Bryant's President regarding Duke's treatment of the lacrosse team and their coach. It's a damn disgrace that an institution with a predigree academic reputation like Duke (well maybe not) would rush so quickly to judgement on the matter, including their board, faculty, student body, the city of Durham, the district attorney's office, etc, etc. Nifong is certainly getting what he deserves that commie pinko.

However, the Duke players should've known better and Pressler did know better. It's only my opinion, but my guess is Mike didn't expect his players to represent the University both on & off the field in a matter befitting their backgrounds & education. Not unlike Brian Billick's approach when he coached the Baltimore Ravens: "Hey, I'm only responsible for them when they report to the locker room. What they do on their time is their responsibility." I think Coach P. was probably very cavelier about enforcing a code of conduct with the team that might've prevented this type of spectacle from occurring...

A very good video that provides lots of insight and valuable lessons to succeed @ any program and any level. Shows that hard work and practice will not only make you a better player, but a better person in the long run.

Kudos to up the good work - this is the kind of material your site should be displaying. I hope you come out with more material like this.

Drop the Maverik videos - theyre garbage.

Wonder If Pressler Will Return To The Top?
    by (#136419) on 2/08/09 @2:30AM
I am wondering if, after some more time at Bryant, and especially if they keep improving, a program at a much higher level would strongly look at Pressler if the head job became open. Such examples are:

even Penn State

Coach Pressler
    by (#211841) on 2/08/09 @11:36AM
Mike Pressler was/is a class act, on and off the field! He coached me at OWU in the late 80's and road me pretty hard, I believe it shaped me into who I am today! Any player that wants to learn more than lax should look into Bryant Univ. Thanks to schools like Bryant, a great coaching mind will NOT be wasted! Looking forward to seeing Bryant in the NCAA finals!!!

The fastest way for Pressler to make it to the F4 is if he can keep top recruits from leaving New England for the UVa's and North Carolina's of the lax world to play for him. No one thought it could happen at Rutger's with their football program, but they've done a fair job of keeping local talent from leaving the Garbage State in recent years.

That said, the Scarlet Knights ain't exactly BCS material, but it's a start so I'm willing to give Pressler the benefit of the doubt - he's got the resume.

one of the best lax videos out there

Phenomenal story. Insightful comments about the relationships between a coach and his players. Should be a must for all those starting to play the game as well as anybody headed to college to play lax.

Good Luck to Coach Pressler & the Bryant Bulldogs
    by (#212597) on 2/15/09 @12:10PM
The video is great, illustrating what I know about Coach Pressler as a true stand up guy. Thanks should go to the President of Bryant for saying what should be said about the Duke administration and faculty regarding their behavior during the Duke scandal - and raising the question about why some of them still have jobs. As a Bryant lax player's parent told me at a game early on in what I'm sure will be a long tenure for Coach Pressler at Bryant, they considered themselves and the Bryant men's lax team as the only winners in the scandal. For the school, students, fans and the game of lacrosse - we can all be happy that Coach Pressler didn't go through with that crazy career change idea. Good luck on the way to D1.
