"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
Welp so much for a jump in wins.
I said Michigan would get 5 this year before this happened. Now...oy
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Sophomore goalie Gerald Logan (Sachem, N.Y./Shoreham-Wading River) of the University of Michigan men's lacrosse team will miss the 2014 season with a shoulder labrum tear that required surgery, the squad announced today (Friday, Jan. 10).
Last season, Logan was selected to the All-ECAC Rookie Team and was named the team's MVP. Logan was No. 2 in the NCAA with 211 saves and ended his freshman campaign averaging 15-plus saves per contest. He recorded double-digit stops in 13 of 14 contests and stopped at least 15 shots in nine games. Logan compiled a 56.3 save percentage, faced 565 shots, and led the team with 36 ground balls.
His program-record 25 saves against Army on March 2 tied the NCAA season high for saves in a single game.
U-M has a pair of goalkeepers expected to fill the void in 2014. Highly touted true freshman Robbie Zonino (Berwyn, Pa./Conestoga), who was ranked as the No. 8 freshman goalie in the country by Inside Lacrosse, is the projected starter heading into the 2014 season. Also on the roster is sophomore goalkeeper Mike D'Alessio (Eastchester, N.Y./The Hackley School), who did not see game action last season."We're obviously going to miss Gerald on the field this season, but our first priority is always the long-term health and welfare of our student-athletes. We expect him back to 100 percent by next fall," said head coach John Paul. "We have full confidence in Robbie as our starter. He had a great fall where he gained valuable experience against Notre Dame, and he has been preparing himself for this role for a few months now."
The Wolverines will open the 2014 season with an exhibition contest against Marquette in Oosterbaan Field House on Saturday (Feb. 1) at 1 p.m.
The newly created award is presented annually to a university or college administrator who displays the highest level of support for the growth of lacrosse.

It's that time of year again. The 2014 schedule for Team 3 of Michigan Men's Lacrosse has been released.
Michigan has some great chances to get some wins this year with fellow fledgling programs furman, mercer and high point on the schedule. Michigan lost a close one last year at high point by 3, furman is in their first year, and mercer is in their third. Michigan's first win in program history was in 2012 in a 14-4 domination over mercer down in Jacksonville.
Michigan's lone win in 2013, saint joseph's will be coming back to Michigan Stadium as well.
Annnnnd then there are some very scary games that could result in big losses like another trip out to future conference foe johns hopkins and maryland coming to Michigan Stadium.
Although not confirmed and left as a TBA for the venue on the schedule, the game against the buckeyes isn't that hard to guess. Similar to Michigan's Battle at The Big House, ohio usually hosts a lacrosse game at the horseshoe prior to their spring game. It looks like the young laxers are being thrown into the lion's cage. Yeesh. It's not so much the opponent as it is a stadium full of uneducated, Maize and Blue hating idiots.
The ECAC Tournament will be played in Columbus at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The tournament will feature the top-4 teams in the ECAC regular season standings. If Michigan can somehow sneak in, this would be a huge step for the program.
This is the final season for the storied ECAC. One of its key additions, Michigan, likely caused its end ironically. The ECAC only has 5 teams left this season (Michigan, ohio, Air Force, Fairfield and Bellarmine).
- Loyola, Denver & Hobart left the ECAC after the 2013 season and will compete in the Patriot League, Big East & NEC in 2014 respectively.
- Michigan & ohio will depart after 2014 being joined by Maryland from the ACC as well as Johns Hopkins and Rutgers from the DI-Independents to form the B1G Lacrosse Conference
- Fairfield will depart for the CAA after 2014
- Air Force will become an DI-Independent after 2014
- Italics indicate the home game will be played at Oosterbaan Field House
- * indicates ECAC Conference game
- Bold indicates home game will be played at Michigan Stadium
Does anyone know when the Michigan Men's Lacrosse schedule will be released? I just saw that Johns Hopkins released their schedule, and they will be playing at Michigan.
Many D1 lacrosse programs are already deep into their 2016 classes. Inside Lacrosse just published their top 25 sophomores, and I was very pleasantly surprised to see a UM commit in the top 10. This is a major step forward for such a young program without wins or facilities yet. All the other top 10 kids who are committed are going to the usual suspects.
Quick google found an Adams highlight film. Kid looks young (he is what, 15?), but very slick.
