So tonight I got to watch the New England Patriots go 16-0 in the regular season and I have to say that that is as punk as you can get. The Giants played a great game, but 3 cheers to the Pats for pulling that off.Punk is wondering, how do the past couple of undefeated lacrosse champions compare to the New England Patriots in what they pulled off this season (even though it’s just the regular NFL season thus far).
In the 2005 season, D1 Johns Hopkins was 16-0 and D3 Salisbury went 20-0 in their respective championship runs. In 2006, D1 Virginia went 17-0 and D2 Lemoyne went 15-0. And to top all off most recently, Salisbury went 23-0 to win the national championship in D3.
Punk can recall being at some of these games for all these teams and wants to know what the lacrosse community thinks about how these teams unblemished records compare to what the Patriots have done this season thus far.
Obviously this Patriots team won’t be recognized as “The Best” if they don’t win the Super Bowl, but as of now, it doesn’t look like anyone will beat them. What do you think? Give me Punk your thoughts!!!
Every generation’s got to have somewhere to play. But of course I suppose the punk thing was just too ugly, and too aggressive, and too reactionary.
