Two recent articles have grabbed the attention of the sports world, and both tackled the subject of yelling and bullying by coaches. The two articles came to VERY different conclusions. One said that all the yelling was ineffective, and amounted to bullying. The other argued that the yelling was actually good for kids, and always has been.
As the season wears on, we’ll see whether New York’s new look team can turn into a dominant force in the MLL. One thing we don’t have to wonder is if can Pannell hack it in the MLL… He’s already given us an emphatic “YES” on that one.
In each MLL ad this year, only one or two players are named, and in each ad, the players named no longer play Major League Lacrosse. Paul Rabil’s name is everywhere, so maybe MLL doesn’t use him, but there are lots of active guys in the league right now, and many of them deserve some shine!
By now you’ve heard the big news: Denver has is joining the Big East, and Hopkins is joining the Big Ten for lacrosse. It’s huge news for the landscape of D1 lacrosse, and will have a number of impacts outside of the obvious. Let’s look at Conference Re-Alignment a bit closer!
The College All Traditional Team is back for 2013 and better than EVER! More NCAA D1 lacrosse players using traditional means a bigger team. See who made this all-star squad for the 2013 season!
Brendan Mundorf teaching an NBA star lacrosse is interesting, but it’s also not “news”. This is an advertisement, packaged as news. There is a difference.
At this point, you probably know that Rob Pannell won the Tewaaraton Award for the 2013 season on the men’s side, and that Katie Schwarzmann has won back to back awards on the women’s side.
While in in Prague, CW had the pleasure of meeting Piotr Stalmach, of Mesh Wizard fame (based out of Poland), and Piotr graciously offered to create a new traditional top string video tutorial for us.
Gewas Schindler has written another open letter on OnondagaNation.org, and it again has to do with the Iroquois being removed from the Blue Division at the 2014 FIL World Championships in Denver, CO.
We all know who Tucker Durkin is, right? Just graduated Hop defender, all-around scary guy on the lacrosse field. Do you ever wonder what he was like in high school? My guess would be much of the same…
The Federation of International Lacrosse has been accepted in to the IWGA, and this is a major step towards the end goal of Olympic participation. The IWGA runs the World Games, and that is where smaller, non-Olympic sports often go, especially if they aim to play in the Olympics eventually.
Race is still an issue in lacrosse, and it always has been. But then again, race is still an issue in the US (and the world), so how could it NOT still be an issue in lacrosse?
A big topic of discussion this Spring has been the relatively low attendance at the NCAA Quarterfinals, and Final Four weekend. The usual outlets are offering the usual banal reasons, but doing little to actually think about what is going wrong here.
Sure, Cornell lost the game, but this shot is simply too remarkable not to watch over and over again. It’s called getting creative kids, and we love seeing stuff like this go down at the highest levels of the game!
Chris Rosenthall has been in Philly all weekend, taking in the games, and providing his thoughts on the weekend. Tommy Gilligan is in Philly shooting the D1 title game, and he got some amazing shots from Le Moyne’s D2, and Stevenson’s D3, title games yesterday.
Tommy Gilligan delivers. Again.
1st half photos from RIT – Stevenson. We’ LIVE!
Yesterday’s games were insanely good. Cornell and Duke delivered with what seemed like three games and an epic shootout finish, while Syracuse and Denver kept things slower, and the scoring was a good deal lower.
Memorial Day Weekend is upon us! While there are only five men’s lacrosse games this weekend, they are the biggest of the big, and all eyes will be on Philadelphia via ESPN, ESPN2, NCAA.com, and crowd in attendance.
Lincoln Financial Field will host a lot of lacrosse this weekend, and two of the five games go down on Saturday, in the men’s lacrosse NCAA D1 semifinals. We’ve got Syracuse – Denver, and Duke – Cornell. Both should be excellent games. So let’s break down what we can expect from each match up.
