Another Championship Weekend In the Books

If someone told you in March that this years NCAA Championship game would be between a Big East school and an ACC school you'd likely guess Syracuse vs. Virginia.  However, that wasn't the case, with Duke facing off against Notre Dame to see who would get their first title.  In the end Duke was victorious in a low scoring (in fact the lowest scoring ever) overtime affair.  Given that the final two schools were two BCS universities with national brand names, the game likely drew more national interest than usual. However, some felt the defensive focused game was a boring experience and not the game lacrosse fans wanted played out on a national stage.  Others also complained about the later start times, as ESPN appears to be slowly pushing the game towards prime time.  And although Baltimore fans promised to deliver, the attendance figures were in line with last years finals weekend in Massachusetts.
