Division I lacrosse preview: Loyola Greyhounds
The bar has been set.

Why Not Denver? Tierney, Pioneers Can Make a Run
When Denver opened its first two seasons under head coach Bill Tierney, the Pioneers played the victim each time in the same place. Denver began the 2010 and 2011 campaigns by getting smacked down in the Carrier Dome with six-goal losses to Syracuse. "I did that [scheduling] on purpose. I knew we would probably get our brains beat in," Tierney recalled. "I wanted [us] to see what a big-time program looked like."
