Mike Lantry, 1972
#1 loyola took out notre dame, 7-5 in the first semifinal today in the Final 4 in Foxboro,MA.
Maryland took out #3 duke in the second game, 16-10.
It will be an all-maryland national championship game memorial day.
Michigan's conference rival, #1 loyola will face un-seeded maryland for the national championship. I want LU to win one for the ECAC and bring respect to the conference.
This is a hot topic in lacrosse right now. Interesting angle to compare it to what basketball went through in the 70s. I would love to hear maizeandbluewahoo's and other mgoblog lacrosse followers' perspectives.
Admittedly, I mainly posted this because the photo they used shows a Michigan player mauling an Ohio player.
Living out of state, I haven't had the chance to see the Men's Lacrosse team play this year. Love the idea of Team One on the back of the helmets.

The Women's Lacrosse club who will become an NCAA D1 team in the 2013-14 academic year, has just captured their second straight WCLL Conference Tournament Championship in Columbus, OH today.
Michigan steamrolled west virginia 16-3 last night in the first round, UPSET the #1 nationally ranked ohio buckeyes in columbus 12-5 earlier today. And in the championship game, Michigan just beat pittsburgh 8-6 to win their second straight WCLL crown.
They get the automatic bid to the WCLA Tournament in Colorado Springs.
The penultimate game of Team One's season (unless we make the playoffs, of course) is tonight at 7 at Rutgers, and it seems that there will be a free live stream provided by the Scarlet Knights. Let's hope the Wolverines give a good showing, and possibly even get the elusive second win.
Also, I think the final game vs. UNC will be on ESPN3.com.
Lacrosse Team One Open Thread v. Ohio State.
Big things ahead. We're like the people that got to watch the first Michigan football team . . . "What is this odd yet interesting sport, 'ole chap?"
