0 - Published March 20, 2014 by in College

While Twitter is usually a place for sharing news and links, it can also facilitate great conversations, 140 characters at a time. Such a conversation occurred surrounding one of Connor’s recent Hot Pot articles, which discussed the “Specialization Problem” and proposed a rule to fix it.

Hot Pot: Lacrosse Companies & NCAA Eligibility Violations

0 - Published March 19, 2014 by in College, Hot Pot, NCAA

Larger lacrosse companies almost exclusively put up photos of their gear on social media, some of which D1 teams will use, and many smaller companies have followed suit. Other companies have taken a different approach, and in my opinion, it’s bordering on an NCAA eligibility violation.

Goalies Hate LongSticks GIF

As a goalie, there is nothing worse than a crank shot from 5 yards away… the second least favorite shot for most keepers has to be the long pole bomb. You never know where it’s going, the angles are different, and half the time the poles don’t even know where the ball is going. It makes for exciting lacrosse, and can be a momentum changing play.

Every wears the exact same helmet, but when it comes to gloves… forget about it. Wear whatever you want!
