Sorry for the Lacrosse post here, but this is AWESOME

Postby JimmyChitwood » Wed Oct 23, 2013 8:31 am

Check out the cover of November's Lacrosse Magazine:

Great to be on the cover! Great exposure to a lot of people around the country (and world). And many will love the "NO MERCY" headline. A framed copy of the cover might make a nice Christmas present for "Dr. G and the Board of Trustees" (that sounds like a blues band).

(I posted this in the lacrosse section, but thought it was cool enough to post over here. Sorry its not b-ball, but we seem to be pretty loose with that b-ball only policy )

Here's what's inside the magazine:

I know there was a lacrosse magazine doing a story on Mike Birney (Jr. men's lax team) and his sister Kylie (soph women's lax team), but I don't know anything more. I'll keep an eye out for it.

so long as we're bastardizing the board--lindsey lammars was named player of the week for her second place finish in the dayton invitational propelling the titans to their first tournament win of the fall.

This is the only magazine my 11 year old son gets. I showed him a picture of the cover (he has not gotten his issue in the mail yet). He thought it was really cool. He said he was going to show everyone on his team.

The magazine has a circulation of over 300,000.

Wow, THAT is really cool!!

UNC and Duke are annual national powers in the lacrosse world, and note a story about them is noted in small print on the bottom right. And yet the mighty Titans get the cover. Pretty cool, this made my day! thanks for posting

This may have ended up being the article. I think that is Kylie in the weight room. Or maybe they will be part of a story about sibling lax players.

Jimmy Chitwood noted over in the lacrosse section that lacrosse was the fastest growing NCAA sport last year. I assume those numbers fluctuate a lot each year, but good to see we were ahead of the curve on this one.

My son's magazine was in the mail yesterday. Not only was there a nice story about the men's and women's programs, spotlighting the Birneys and Troy Dennis (the guy on the cover), but they highlighted the men's Run to the Fist run from campus to the Joe Louis Fist and the women pushing an SUV around the parking lot as part of their workouts. In the News and Notes section they mentioned Mike Birney's 114 mph shot which tied a world record.

AND the magazine's editor's letter at the front of the magazine was all about the game against ND in the NCAA tournament as his Game of the Year:
Remember the Titans
Detroit Mercy's near-upset of Irish was best game of 2013

Around this time of year, Lacrosse Magazine ramps up its annual "Best of Lacrosse" awards. You can join the conversation at LaxMagazine.com/BestOfLacrosse2013 or on Twitter (#BestOfLax).

My pick for the best game of 2013? Detroit Mercy's near-upset of Notre Dame in the NCAA men's tournament. I'm only one vote, but that game gets the nod over trendier contenders, like Casey Powell's comeback game with the Chesapeake Bayhawks, the epic NCAA Division I women's final, Duke's heart-stopping wins over the Loyola and Cornell men, and Canada-Australia in the FIL Women's World Cup.

How could you not be enamored with Detroit Mercy, a team that was 2-9 with two weeks left in the season and rallied to win its conference championship to make the dance at 5-9? How could you not root for a team from a city with so little to cheer about since the economic collapse of 2008? How could you not watch with bated breath as the Titans put the mighty Irish on the ropes in South Bend?

No MAAC representative had ever won an NCAA tournament game. Nor had a sub-.500 team.

But there were the Titans, a devil-may-care collection of overlooked players from Canada and the Midwest, imposing their will on the Irish, a final four favorite since the season started.

For three quarters, Notre Dame had no answer for Detroit Mercy's rangy defensemen — namely Jordan Houtby, the Canadian national team hopeful whose 158 career caused turnovers were the most by any player since the NCAA started tracking them in 2010.

For three quarters, the Titans reduced the Irish's well-reputed defense to ball-watchers and bystanders, as they expertly milked possessions and capitalized in timer-on situations.

For three quarters, Notre Dame looked lost on faceoffs, making Damien Hicks look like Alex Smith as he won nine of the first 12.

Detroit Mercy was on the brink of the biggest upset in NCAA tournament history.

And then Irish coach Kevin Corrigan did his best Mickey Goldmill impression.

You remember The Mick, don't you? He was Rocky Balboa's trainer, played by the late Burgess Meredith, in the "Rocky" films. In "Rocky II," Mickey trains Rocky to fight right-handed, even though he's a lefty. Rocky takes Apollo Creed to the 15th round, at which point Mickey gives Rocky the green light to switch back to southpaw, turning the tide of the fight.

In his back pocket, Corrigan had Notre Dame's seldom-used 10-man ride. And he showed remarkable restraint, waiting until the start of the fourth quarter to unleash it.

Like the rejuvenated Rocky, the Irish came out swinging. They rode like their lives depended on it, forced six Detroit Mercy turnovers, won six of seven faceoffs, scored four goals in the first five minutes to tie the game at 7 and eventually won 9-7.

The "Rocky" analogy works, until you realize that in this game, Notre Dame was Apollo. That the Irish had to resort to such gimmickry says a lot about the resolve of the Titans — which inspired us to make Detroit Mercy the centerpiece of this special fitness edition of Lacrosse Magazine.

Coaches Matt Holz and Laura Maness have embraced Detroit's rugged reputation by challenging players to do the same. Holz's men do an annual "Run to the Fist," an 8.7 mile team-toughening jaunt through downtown landmarks ending at the Joe Louis Fist. Maness' women started a new tradition this year, the "SUV Push and Run," where players take turns in twos willing an occupied vehicle around an empty, dim-lit parking lot. Featured gym rats Troy Dennis and Kylie Birney take Detroit's blue-collar mentality to a new level.

If lacrosse fans around the country didn't know we had good lax programs before this, they will now. THANKS Lacrosse Magazine!

(fyi: a 10-man ride is sort of like a full court press with the goalie coming out and aggressively guarding someone essentially creating an extra defender)

A follow-up on the Lacrosse Magazine's polls with news in this month's magazine:

The NCAA game against ND easily won the Fan Favorite for Best game with 56% of the vote. The next game has 32%.

The men finished 2nd to a high school women's team from Georgia in the Best Team Breakthrough.

And, again, the Detroit lax shirt is prominently displayed on 3 pages in the magazine. There is are 3 large pictures and and article where Titan Mike Birney tells his tips for shooting 114mph. On the same pages, there is a picture of Mike with his sister Kylie and a blurb about sibling rivalry.

2 months in a row of GREAT coverage in a very popular international magazine based out of Baltimore. Can't beat that. Let's hope all of this publicity helps us.
