This is obviously your favorite site, but other people actually write important stuff sometimes. Now is that sometimes.

Nine-goal run spurs Air Force past Michigan
Michigan’s lacrosse team looked headed for an opportunity at their first Division-1 victory, building a 3-0 lead just 8:24 into their game against Air Force at Peter Barton Stadium in Denver. However, the Falcons scored the next nine goals to take control of the game, and cruised to a 15-6 win.

North Carolina's Furious Rally Overcomes Navy 9-8
Fourth-ranked North Carolina scored four unanswered goals in the fourth quarter, including the game winner by Thomas Wood with 1:16 to play, as it rallied past Navy 9-8 in men's lacrosse action before 1,801 fans at Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium Saturday afternoon. The game marked the biggest fourth quarter comeback for UNC in the sport in 16 years.

Maryland junior Curtis Holmes dominates the faceoff circle and the Terps have little trouble with the Hoyas in a 16-11 win.

Princeton's Comeback Tour Starts With Hofstra Win
Tom Schreiber didn't hesitate. The Princeton sophomore had never experienced a season like 2011, when the Tigers struggled through a 4-8 record and averaged just over seven points per game.

It builds up and builds up and it's like you don't know what to do."

For the last three years and change, Maryland¿s offense was built on the star-studded attack of Grant Catalino, Ryan Young and Travis, and that trio helped the team reach the national title game last season.

A is for automatic qualifier. Seven conference champions receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament: American East , Big East, CAA, ECAC, Ivy League, MAAC, and Patriot League. There are only nine at-large bids...and its likely that four ACC schools grab them. Do the math.

Trevor Tierney on the Huguely-Love Tragedy
This article is my take on the George Huguely V and Yeardley Love tragedy. Many people in lacrosse are tip-toeing around this topic, like it is some deep, dark family secret, and that's because it is. It's an extremely sensitive topic that is sad and quite challenging to talk about. But we need to be open and discuss it, to discover any healing from a tragedy like this.

Today's beats: U2's "Desire" off of Rattle and Hum. There was a time when U2 wasn't pumping out hot garbage. This is one of those times.
