I still don't know how I feel about this one, but my feelings are not your concern. (You're not my therapist right? Then, yes, my feelings are not your concern.)

Notre Dame is rolling with the nastiest, stingiest, dastardly defense this side of really nasty, stingy, and dastardly things. John Kemp is a man among other men (just a bigger, more manly version, I guess) and his steady play between the pipes has helped shape a unit that has cracked only once this year. Yale, eschewing steadiness and instead preferring exponential growth, is looking to capitalize on its surprising run to the Ivy League title last weekend and throw the entire postseason bracket into chaos.

Which, of course, would be par for the course in this college lacrosse season. ESPNU and ESPN3 have your back for this one.

Here's how the game shakes out on the Fun Factor scale:

This is your open thread for the game. Who wants to play punch-for-punch?
