So, I was checking the offseason happenings at Insidelacrosse.com, and it so happened that one of the lead pieces today regarded 2015 commitments to my Alma Mater, and Maize& Blue Wahoo's as well.
(yes, in the lacrosse world classes start filling up that early - suffice it to say that those who are recruited that early tend to be the elite of the elite, committing to the elite)
No, Michigan didn't have a commitment in that list of 2015 recruits (did have one in the 2014 update, however.) What is interesting is that of the 4 rising sophomores listed as committing this week, 3 of them had Michigan on their interest list. When you look at who they committed to, and who else they were considering, this is very good company!
If you look at the 2014 and 2013 lists, comparatively few were even considering Michigan. A sign of good things to come? Michigan recruiting a year or two from the next level?
He still doesn't sound apologetic at all and avoids discussing the real issue at hand. He let a monster stick around and harm defenseless children. Instead, he criticizes school officials for attacking the football program. I realize he was elderly and PSU football was his life but he had no remorse for his mistakes.
Looks like Michigan is looking for a new Offensive Coordinator for the lacrosse team next year, as Judd Lattimore announced he's leaving Michigan to return to UPenn. He coached there earlier in his career, and the assumption is he'll play a similar role on their coaching staff.
Definitely a blow for Michigan in the sense that Lattimore is a great coach and offensive mind. It will be interesting to see who Michigan gets in his place and whether they go internal or external for the job.
There is a link to a podcast with coach JP over at Inside Lacrosse. It is about 24 minutes long. I haven't listened to the whole podcast yet but anytime we get more infor about this program the better.
Sad story out of Jacksonville and New York today. Corey Lovrich, 21, passed away from colon cancer last night in New York. I think i speak for all Michigan fan when i say our thoughts go out to his family and teammates.
