Lax Championship Thread

I know precious little about Lacrosse; but I do have a rooting hierarchy.  Obviously, the Terps come first, forever and always.  After that, I root for Maryland-based schools in reverse order of their tradition of success.  As such, I root for Loyola over Hopkins and Navy and they give UMBC and Towson a run for their money too.  Yet, despite my allegiance to Maryland schools; I care little for any of them when they stand in the Terps' way.

Maryland has a chance to hoist a trophy for the first time in 37 years tomorrow. Loyola may be the highest rated team in the country; but these Terps have been here before and they seem to be on a mission.  The game won't be an easy one; but my money is on the Terps.

While we are here, I've picked up a couple of Twitter rumors over the weekend.
1. The Harrison twins are planning to announce their choice of school at the Maryland - Kentucky game @ the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn this November.  The Terps are still a long shot, but we are still in the game.
2.  Demonte Dodd got noticed this weekend at an AAU Tournament in St. Louis.  Both Dave Telep and Evan Daniels raved about him on Twitter.  Phrases like "he's got all the tools", and "mobile and can board it" peppered their statements on the subject.  See for yourself

Now Dodd may enroll in prep school for a year, but methinks that Turgeon could possibly use him right away.  Why Not?

Anyway.  Go Terps! Beat the Hounds!

The Men's Lacrosse team have been a welcome dis [...] Read More »
