Syracuse gets the #1 seed the year Hopkins, Virginia, and Princeton all miss it. ALL. THE. TROLLING. this offseason. :P

But yeah this should be an interesting one to say the least. I'm surprised UNC's down all the way at 5 and that Cornell has to go on the road, but otherwise I felt the teams in/out were completely right. Denver-Albany is going to cause televisions across the country to explode with those two teams' firepower, that's for sure

North Carolina was not an AQ. A conference needs six members in order to have it. ACC lacrosse only has four.

I think the Scoobies might upset Denver and Loyola might upset Duke. Also, the fact that both Detroit and Bryant won their conference tournaments by the likes of Siena and Robert Morris is amazing. Just 5 years ago Bryant made the push from D2 to D1.

Man, Do I love this game!

Forgot about the ACC being a non-AQ league, but I added it because I went with how the NCAA page went.

It'll be an AQ league next year with Syracuse and Notre Dame. Not to mention the Atlantic Sun will have lacrosse as well.

Notre Dame rallys back to beat Detroit Mercy 11-9. I was really was rooting for the Titans to pull off the upset. Also if any of you have the chance, check out the open thread on CollegeCrosse.com. The fan comments are too hilarious.

As Bryant alum I will be rooting hard for Bryant tomorrow. Bryant's record is deceiving because most loses were close 1-2 goals and a few OT loses. Unfortunately, all those loses were when Bryant was down 2 starters and missing a few other key players.

On another note, UDM blew the game today.

Well... that might have been the most UNC lacrosse thing to ever happen to UNC lacrosse. Denver comes back from a huge deficit to win with 13 seconds left to clinch a Final Four berth. First Desko vs. Tierney matchup in the NCAA Final Four since the glory days of Princeton-Syracuse up ahead Saturday

When it was six to nothing, I thought Denver was done for, but wow, that had me on the edge of my seat. Go Duke.
