Too bad.  another one gets away.  after going up 3-0, Michigan was outscored 12-3 the rest of the game.  In a pivotal stretch in the 3rd they gave up a goal on a man-up and then gave up  goals on a botched clear and undisciplined play in unsettled situations and that about did it.

Watched the 2nd half, and it looked like after Michigan went down early in the 4th they upped the pressure and that led to BU running away with it.  Watching the offense, it looks like we still don't quite have the athletes to break down the defense 6v6 consistently.  I saw a lot of shots running away from the goal, forced feeds and shots from far out, which shows me that we're still outmatched physcially. 

Kyle Jackson did some nice things, and the man-up looked to at least generate some looks. Lott looks like an upgrade, although it seems BU adjusted to him by the 4th.

Next up: on the road at #5 johns hopkins. Live at 1pm on ESPN3. 

That one isn't going to be as close as this one was. And that's saying something. We might be playing a future B1G Lacrosse Conference member since the B1G has contacted JHU about becoming an affiliate member.
