The Rutgers men’s lacrosse team has worked years to get to this moment. They’re up against the top ranked team in the country but that doesn’t mean the Scarlet Knights can’t pull the upset. This senior class has been unbelievable and they have a chance to do something really special today. The program has never made a Final Four but it would be so appropriate if this was the group to finally breakthrough. Even if they don’t, let’s hope they play well and as fans let’s appreciate how much they have done for this program regardless of today’s result.
