Judgement Day—#3 Ranked Terrapins Face Red Hot Irish Team–At Stake a Trip to the Final Four!!!!

Most of you reading this blog are my loyal followers. Most of you know my great fondness for the Men’s Lacrosse program. Maybe it started in 1973 when I drove to Franklin Field to watch Frank Urso–still Maryland’s greatest lacrosse player–lead Maryland to an overtime victory over Dr Les Matthews and Johns Hopkins. Maybe it continued when my good friend Casey Connor had to endure 2 Final game losses to Princeton in 97 and 98. Maybe my heart was broken in 2003 when Tillman Johnson made acrobatic saves to defeat a heavily favored Maryland team—then in 2005 after Andrew Schwartzmann’s incredible OT goal to put the Terps in the Final four, Duke ended the dream–the next year it was Doc Schneider from UMass who came up huge in the Semifinal game.

But certainly it grew the most when I started the show 4 years ago and was at Maryland looking for a high profile Coach to help me open up the show. Dave Cottle overheard my request and immediately volunteered his services. It’s easy to get to know the lacrosse kids as Cottle and Media rep Patrick fischer have an extremely open access policy. THESE ARE SOME GREAT KIDS ON THIS TEAM and they are a true family always supporting fighting and willing to go to battle for each other.  2 years ago after an overtime loss to UVA  in the NCAA quarterfinals,  I witnessed a team that was crushed, in tears but together more then you can imagine.

Well that’s why today is so important to every Terrapin lacrosse fan. As for me, there is a definite emotional tie to Cottle and this team. Cottle has done a great job using the entire squad. practices are spirited. Everyone loves being part of this family. Terrapins it’s your day today–make the most of it!!!!!!!
