MICHIGAN LACROSSE GOES DIVISION I IN 2012

Just so you know, it's taking a lot of restraint to not write this post entirely in capital letters. 

The University of Michigan Men's Lacrosse Team will be joining the 60 other NCAA Division I teams to play in 2012. I can't even explain to you how excited this makes me and how much these boys deserve it (the women too; they are said to be following suit in 2013).  Since 2008, the men's team is 70-1 with THREE MCLA championship titles under their belt, and they've started this season off 13-0. In 2009, four players were named to the MCLA All-American team, and last year, the Wolverines contributed eight players.

Michigan will also be the first FBS school to join the Division I lacrosse world since Notre Dame did in 1981. You can definitely expect to see big rival games like Ohio State and Notre Dame on the schedule, as well as fellow Big Ten member Penn State and neighboring school Detroit Mercy. Some other big name teams that I hope to see on their schedule include Duke (obviously), UNC, Syracuse, UVA, Johns Hopkins, and Maryland.

This transition means amazing things for the Michigan Lacrosse program, and I couldn't happier it's coming this soon. Thanks to David Brandon & the coaches for making this dream a reality.

GO BLUE.
