BTW, I have been disappointed with Lakehead's play at nationals. A few years back I would have bet they'd have a national title, and several more wins, at nationals.
Yes, I do clearly remember SMU's meltdown a couple years back against the Western Ontario Mustangs. I also remember Lakehead taking a run at the 2006 Uni Cup, stunning Saskatchewan although totally out-played, and then nearly upsetting host Alberta. A large part of that was the play of their goalie at the time, Chris Whitley.
Yes, in the University Cup format, it is totally feasible — and not shocking — to see lesser teams steal games in one-off scenarios. However, it's pretty tough to pull off a three-game heist.
