In Topic: Lacrosse 2017-2018 a look ahead

I believe the Thompson's make a good deal of cash on endorsements (Nike) and their own lacrosse business. The amount they make from actually playing the game is just a nice bonus for the exposure they get. I beleive Rob Panell became the second player to ever ink a $1,000,000 in endorsements, I wouldn't be surprised if Lyle was the third. It seems to me like his entourage is living a pretty good life and they are all employed by TB Lax.

 

During my time at UA, we got very little monetary support from alums (Though the moral support was always amazing). It takes a very wealthy person to be able to put up the serious bucks we are talking about here, and since UA has only been D1 for 18ish years, the OLDEST UA lax alums are only in their late 30's. They are more concerned with saving for their kid's college than building facilities at UA. 

 

But Hey, A guy can dream :)

I have heard there are great views in the second deck. I wouldn't be opposed, I just figured the best sections would be down below. Thanks for the info!

If anyone has access to tickets and isn't planning on using their allotment could you please consider contacting me? I am alumni and would like to purchase at least 2 seats but there aren't any 1st level seats available and I would love to be down with the home team fans. Thanks!

No - but consider Liam as good as gone. Mark it down. Michigan is a GREAT job and unless one of the current head coaches at a top 15 program decide it is a better opportunity ALA Tambroni w/ PSU, I think Liam is the next HC. All he has done is take a UA defense from being one of the worst in the country year in and year out and turn it into one of the best.....ALL while having to play defense against his own offense. When you play at the pace SUNY does, you expect a very mediocre D
