Here is a good article detailing Maryland Lax Season
The Birth of the Sideline' Mosh Pit:
No one called out the Terps more than Tillman and his staff. "What really disappointed us was our energy level. It was non-existent. We showed Colgate's bench on film. They were jumping around, howling, and pumping things up. Then we showed ours — docile, no emotion — it provided us with a great teaching moment." With a roster that featured twice as many freshmen as seniors the Maryland coaches encouraged his players to support one another better. The fervor that had existed in recent years on the bench for Maryland lacrosse had disappeared. The captains held a closed door players-only meeting. The result? "That was the birth of the sideline mosh pit" says Tillman
Re: Loyola and taking responsibility
They were No. 1 for a reason and they showed it, just great pieces to a very talented puzzle. We started to get tired in the game and Loyola forced us to make a lot of mistakes." He adds "not to make any excuses but Maryland is at their best when we have a week to prepare and game plan, and that is on me. Quite frankly even if we would have had a week I'm not so sure we could have beaten Loyola. They earned that championship."
