The Best #7 Seed in NCAA Lacrosse History!


The hottest team in Men's College Lacrosse wears GOLD HELMETS -- most of the time...

The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame learned today what they'll need to do to get to the Final Four over Memorial Day Weekend.  Here's the path:
  • Game #1 vs. Denver -- at Notre Dame
  • Win and you advance to probably play #2 Albany
  • Win and you advance to the Final Four where you'd probably play #3 Yale
  • Win and you advance to the National Championship where you'd probably play #1 Maryland

Will potentially have to beat #2, #3 and then #1 -- why not!!!
