Lacrosse having a "down" year?

There hasn't been a ton of coverage, but it seems like lacrosse is having a down the standards of national championship appearances every year. They consistently destroy ranked teams (blowout wins over #18 USC, #23 UMass, #10 Duke, and #24 Clemson) but fall short against the top tier of teams (blowout loss to #1 UNC, closer games against #5 Northwestern and #6 Denver).

Does anyone have any intel on future recruiting? Really hoping this is just a bit of an off year and they'll be on top again next year.
