Yeatman Back To Notre Dame

He left Notre Dame, citing the need for a fresh start. Yet in a twist from the NCAA men's lacrosse selection committee, Will Yeatman won't be able to totally escape his time with the Irish just yet.

Yeatman now plays lacrosse for Maryland, the first-round opponent for No. 7 Notre Dame in the 2009 men's lacrosse tournament.

And the game is in South Bend, televised Sunday at noon on ESPNU.

Yeatman started 11 of 12 games for Maryland this year, scoring 13 goals and notching 13 assists.

While there'll be a lot of talk about Yeatman, who had two alcohol-related offenses while at Notre Dame that had him suspended for all the 2008 lacrosse season and half the 2008 football season, he won't be saying much of anything.

Maryland's sports information department has already said Yeatman won't be available this week except for a statement that will be released either today or Tuesday.
