One of my favorite things about teaching the fundamentals of face-offs is that the improvement can happen instantly. Eventually it’s the little things that separate good face-off men from great face-off men.

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hounds are camped out in the 0-2 basement, and the rest of the league is sitting at 1-1.

I brought Joe Williams of Throne of String to Prague for the 2014 Ales Hrebesky Memorial for two reasons: 1) he’s an awesome guy, good friend, and greasy box lacrosse player. 2) He makes videos the likes of which I want to someday make, and I knew he’d deliver with an insane Praha Experience video.

In the spirit of “Is this D1 lacrosse poll serious?”, I’ll be taking a look at the NCAA D1 Lacrosse Tournament teams and asking whether or not they were ranked correctly. Was Duke really deserving of the #1 seed? Should a non-AQ Ivy team really have made it in to the tourney over Hofstra? Let’s take a look and see if this selection group is serious!

Deadspin Loves Lacrosse “Trend” Spotting

0 - Published May 2, 2014 by in Featured, High School

The notion that the author, Dave McKenna, puts out there is summed up thusly:

This is incredibly lazy reporting and storytelling.
