Nice article for all our Michigan fans out there: How Bryce Clay and Andrew Darby have benefited from a positive Michigan culture.
Playing against the best atheletes of your sport at the Division I level is daunting. Playing in a starting role as a freshman — even more daunting.
But when attackman Bryce Clay and defenseman Andrew Darby both found themselves in the starting lineup for the Michigan men’s lacrosse team against Drexel last Februrary — the second game of their freshman season — they had little to fear.
Coach Myers talked a little Leopards lacrosse during halftime of Lafayette’s basketball game versus Army.

Our friends at Anonymous Eagle did some unscientific predictions for the Big East.
Everyone cross your fingers and hope that the Big East isn’t super fast on the draw this morning. I realized yesterday that the preseason awards for men’s lacrosse came on out January 23rd last season, so I knocked together this list of preseason picks to get out in front of the league office. Will it work? I certainly hope so!

Oh boy: Did Gritty punch a 13-year-old boy in the back? Philadelphia detectives are investigating.
