Johns Hopkins' 12-4 record last season disguised a matter that troubles every coach but has few solutions: injuries. Four starters missed extended time in 2012 because of a variety of ailments. Attackman Chris Boland - who has since graduated - sat out eight starts after breaking his collarbone in the team's season-opening win against Towson, and then-junior midfielder John Greeley was sidelined for the final four contests after re-tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

With No. 13 Johns Hopkins mired in a 1-3 skid, perhaps it's natural to wonder if the losses are having an adverse effect on the players. If so, that's not a concern for coach Dave Pietramala. “Most people don't like to lose,” he said Monday. “Certainly, we don't like to lose around here. When you win and you beat No. 1, you're the greatest thing since sliced bread. If you lose a game you shouldn't lose, you're the worst thing. That's the nature of it, and that's OK. We have to embrace that.

Adding injury to insult, No. 9 Johns Hopkins' stunning 8-2 loss to unranked Navy on Saturday was exacerbated by the loss of junior midfielder John Greeley, who appeared to re-injure the knee in which he had tore the anterior cruciate ligament last summer. On Monday morning, coach Dave Pietramala declined to update Greeley's status for Saturday's road contest at No. 2 Loyola, saying, “He's working with our trainers and the doctors. But I won't comment on where he is and what's going on.” Greeley, who has recorded seven goals and seven assists in 12 starts, suffered the injury 51 seconds into the second quarter when he intercepted a clearing pass by Midshipmen senior goalie RJ Wickham and crumpled to the turf at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium without being touched.

Navy is 5-6, no longer in contention for a berth in the Patriot League Tournament and on the cusp of ending its season against Johns Hopkins for the second consecutive year. But Blue Jays coach Dave Pietramala said he has no intention of overlooking the Midshipmen, who welcome No. 9 Johns Hopkins (9-2) to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis this Saturday. “Whenever we've stepped onto Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, we're playing against the United States Naval Academy,” he said Wednesday.

Johns Hopkins' 11-10 overtime win against Virginia vaulted the Blue Jays to the top of many polls and rankings. But being No. 1 is not something that is weighs on the players or coaches, according to coach Dave Pietramala. “It doesn't matter,” he said Wednesday. “You could pick a lot of teams for No. 1. UMass is 8-0, Loyola is 8-0. Part of that is just where you were ranked originally. I would tell you that being No. 1 doesn't mean anything right now.” Johns Hopkins (8-0)

During his post-game conference after No. 2 Johns Hopkins's 11-7 victory over No. 7 Syracuse Saturday, coach Dave Pietramala immediately cast the Blue Jays as underdogs for Saturday's road contest against No. 1 Virginia, citing the program's winless drought in Charlottesville, Va., that extends back to 1998. That suggestion drew chuckles from Cavaliers coach Dom Starsia, who joked, “I don't even know why they're coming. What's the point?” Asked whether Pietramala's comment was coachspeak, Starsia replied, “Absolutely.

No. 2 Johns Hopkins' 11-7 victory over No. 7 Syracuse on Saturday assured the lacrosse community of a showdown between the top two teams in the country when the Blue Jays visit No. 1 Virginia this Saturday. It also gave Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala an opportunity to immediately cast his 7-0 team as overwhelming underdogs against an 8-0 Cavaliers squad that is the reigning national champion. “Nice to be 7-0,” he said during his post-game comments. “I think we put ourselves in a good position, and now we go down to a place and against a team that no one is going to give us a chance against.” That suggestion prompted Gary Lambrecht, former Sun writer and current Lacrosse Magazine contributor, to ask, “Really?

With No. 2 Johns Hopkins preparing to welcome No. 7 Syracuse to Homewood Field in Baltimore on Saturday, the Blue Jays would love to have their full complement of attackmen at their disposal. But it's unclear whether senior Chris Boland and freshman Wells Stanwick will be available against the Orange (3-1). “Don't know yet,” coach Dave Pietramala said of their status. “It's kind of a day-to-day, week-to-week type of thing with both guys. So we don't know yet.” Boland has missed five straight contests since injuring his shoulder in the team's season-opening victory over Towson Feb. 17. Stanwick is reportedly dealing with a hand injury that has sidelined him for the last three games.

Shawn Nadelen channeled his inner Tony Stewart. In the aftermath of Towson's 12-6 loss to No. 4 Johns Hopkins on Friday evening, the Tigers coach borrowed a theme expressed by Stewart - the three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion who said last year that he would “run over my mother to win a championship” - when asked about coaching against Dave Pietramala, who coached Nadelen in his senior year with the Blue Jays. “It's a game. It could've been my grandmother out there.
