Q U O T E S
Michigan Head Coach John Paul
On the atmosphere... "I thought it was amazing. This is what we were looking for, and this was the purpose of playing a game like this. We wanted to introduce to Michigan fans that might not know lacrosse that well, and today was a great opportunity to do that. Having the band there, as well as the large crowd really energized us today. The crowd was three of four times bigger than what we normally get, and it felt like a bigger game for us."
On scoring nine goals against a solid Ohio State defense... "We take a lot out of the way we played today. The last three weeks we've played good lacrosse, but close isn't good enough. We've made tremendous strides in every area over the course of the season. Team One is going to lay the foundation, and we want them to put their hard hat on and get back to work, and our leaders have done a great job establishing the culture from day one."
