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.
