In light of Johns Hopkins president Ronald J. Daniels accepting the recommendation of a seven-member special committee to explore joining a conference, university athletic director Tom Calder and men's lacrosse coach Dave Pietramala participated in a conference call Friday afternoon. Here are a few highlighted quotes from the conference call. Athletic director Tom Calder on the timetable for researching potential conference: “There really isn't any timeline. We've got to put a lot of time into this and make sure that if we are going to go into a conference, we do all of our homework and that we do what's best not only for the athletes and the team but the university also.” Coach Dave Pietramala on the timetable: “From our perspective, this is an exciting opportunity and the decision to seek conference affiliation is a monumental decision, which means the next decision is as equally as big because you want to continue to move into a positive direction, and you want to find the right place.

Maybe 15 or 20 years ago, ego and image would have prevented Johns Hopkins from joining the Big Ten. But university officials put those aside any of those lingering issues as the Blue Jays announced Monday that they will be joining the conference in 2015. Hopkins became the last of the big-name independent holdouts to announce an affiliation with a conference, and it was the right decision for not only the Jays, but the Big Ten as well. When the Blue Jays failed to make the 16-team NCAA Division I tournament this spring for the first time in 41 years, it might have been the deciding factor to force school officials to make the decision, but potential plans were already being discussed by coach Dave Pietramala and athletic director Tom Calder two years ago. It was really a no-brainer.

The Johns Hopkins lacrosse program has always considered "tradition" to be the best part of its sales pitch when wooing high school recruits. But the school doesn't mind admitting that even the grandest traditions can use a little updating as time goes by. That's why the school announced Tuesday that it plans to build a $10 million, 14,000-square foot lacrosse facility on the south end of Homewood Field that will serve as the home for its...

Johns Hopkins intends to introduce one of its all-time greats, Dave Pietramala, as men's lacrosse coach at a news conference this afternoon. Athletic director Tom Calder wouldn't comment on the hiring -- honoring a pledge he'd made earlier in the week not to reveal names - nor would Pietramala, 32, who is the coach at Cornell. "Right now, I'm the head lacrosse coach at Cornell, and here I am today," he said form his office in Ithaca, N.Y. But a source within the Hopkins athletic department confirmed the choice of Pietramala, who has coached Cornell the past three seasons and compiled a 23-17record.
