The Chesapeake Bayhawks improved their credibility and that of Major League Lacrosse on Thursday, naming former Maryland lacrosse coach Dave Cottle their new coach. "It's the ideal situation, a no-brainer for me," said owner Brendan Kelly, who hired Cottle two years ago as a consultant and assistant coach and named him president in January 2011. "Dave's track record speaks for itself. To have him stay on board — with Dave's name out there for every college vacancy — was my goal.

The selection committee's decision to award the No. 1 seed to Loyola Sunday night was the first time the program had earned that seed since 1999. That year, the Greyhounds went 12-0 as the only undefeated team in Division I, but fell to No. 8 seed Syracuse, 17-12, in the quarterfinals. The coach of that squad was Dave Cottle, and the current coach of the Chesapeake Bayhawks of the Major League Lacrosse relived the memory of that loss during a phone interview Tuesday. “I know in '99, we were devastated that we were the only undefeated team in the country and we had to play the winner of Syracuse-Princeton at Princeton,” Cottle said.

The Chesapeake Bayhawks had been officially eliminated from playoff contention entering their game against the New York Lizards on Sunday. That didn't stop them from making a late comeback in a 12-11 road win for their fourth win of the Major League Lacrosse season. "Our theme and motto for today was that sometimes playing for nothing means everything," Chesapeake coach Dave Cottle said. "Even if we didn't have a chance at the playoffs, we could still play for pride and for each other.

An 8-7 double-overtime loss to the Rochester Rattlers a week ago left the Chesapeake Bayhawks with their fifth defeat in six games. But the play of the defense planted a few seeds for hope. The unit allowed a season low in goals and also limited a Rochester offense that had scored 18 goals in a rout of the Florida Launch on June 1. Chesapeake goalkeeper Kip Turner, an Annapolis native and Severn School graduate, made a season-high 18 saves. “Rochester scored 18 goals the week before, and we held them to seven through overtime,” Bayhawks coach Dave Cottle said during a league-wide conference call on Wednesday.

Truth be told, life didn't change all that much for Dave Cottle in the two years after his last game as Maryland's men's lacrosse coach. It just became somewhat inverted. With his schedule suddenly open, sure, he finally got to see his son, Sean, play more of the sport he coached for nine seasons in College Park and another 19 at Loyola. And, yes, he can speak from experience these days when he jokes about knowing what it's like to go in for a Saturday morning oil change. (“I've never done that, that whole weekend thing,” he said.)

Dave Cottle is in his third season at Maryland as head coach. The Terps finished 12-4 last year and lost in the NCAA semifinals. Baltimoresun.com: What have you learned about your team during preseason? Dave Cottle: I think we're an older and more mature team on the defensve end of the field. Looks like we'll start three seniors on defense: Lee Zink, Dave Wagner (Severna Park) and Chris Passavia. Seniors Drew Virk and Paul Gillette (Severna Park) return at short stick defense and we have junior Tyler Hereth at long pole.

Tim Goettelmann, one of Major League Lacrosse's inaugural players, will suit up for the  Chesapeake Bayhawks on Thursday night against the New York Lizards - the team for which he has played his entire 11-year MLL career. Goettelmann, 35, had announced his retirement from the league in January 2012, but he confirmed he is back in a phone interview Wednesday morning. And his nickname, "Monster," might not fit. Goettelmann has slimmed down to 205 pounds and has been training with an MMA fighter.

Since 2006, the Chesapeake Bayhawks have won eight of 12 meetings with the Rochester Rattlers, including a 17-14 victory on April 27. But that game was the season opener for both teams, and Rochester has changed drastically since then. After a 1-3 start, the Rattlers have split their last eight meetings and - with a 5-7 record - are among five teams battling for the final two berths in Major League Lacrosse's four-team playoff. Rochester's offense has been buoyed by a pair of rookie midfielders in David Lawson and John Ranagan (Johns Hopkins)

The lines of players in front of each team's bench during the national anthem were shorter than usual. In Thursday night's Major League Lacrosse matchup between the last place Chesapeake Bayhawks (3-8) and the first-place Rochester Rattlers (8-3), the teams were without a combined 12 players who were competing in the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships in Commerce City, Colo. On a night when Chesapeake's season was on the line, with the team needing to win all four of its remaining games to make the playoffs, seven Bayhawks players were in Colorado.

Four days after losing a late lead against the Ohio Machine and falling into last place in Major League Lacrosse, the Chesapeake Bayhawks made a move geared toward the future. In the lone deal Tuesday before the trade deadline, the Bayhawks (3-7) acquired midfielder Kevin Crowley and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 MLL college draft from the Florida Launch in exchange for midfielders Steven Brooks, David Earl and Jon Hayes. Crowley was an All-Star this season, but his numbers are down from a year ago, when the British Columbia native was chosen as Player of the Year after finishing with 38 goals (three 2-pointers)

COLLEGE PARK - Dave Cottle anticipates a long marriage with the Maryland lacrosse team. The honeymoon? Can't we discuss less delicate matters? Cottle's hiring was a lacrosse gossip's dream. Mike LaMonica and Mike Mollot, two of the Terps' top offensive players, say his reputation as an offensive guru preceded him, but ringing endorsements are not what met Cottle last September when Maryland lacrosse went from the Big Man to the big stink. Three weeks after Dick Edell, a.k.a. the Big Man, announced his retirement after 18 years in charge at Maryland, the university hired Cottle, the one candidate players had lobbied against.

Of the 287 goals Paul Rabil has scored as a midfielder for Johns Hopkins and the Boston Cannons, 62 have been assisted. Not counted there is a big assist from a longtime rival of Rabil's: Dave Cottle. After deciding to pursue lacrosse, Rabil transferred to DeMatha High in Hyattsville following his freshman year at Watkins Mill in Gaithersburg. He then attended a lacrosse camp where Cottle was coaching. Rabil recalled how Cottle challenged the roughly 200 campers to take 100 shots per day. "Everyone's like, 'Psh, no way,'" Rabil said as the keynote speaker of The Baltimore Sun High School Athletes of the Year luncheon on May 28. "And he's like, 'It's got to be a real 100 shots, counting holidays, counting blizzards.
