College Coaches on 2015 Face-Off Rules Changes

Whatever the reason may be doesn’t matter now because the rules are set in stone for the season and guys have played this way all year-long. Inside Lacrosse sits down with a handful of the game’s most prestigious coaches and gets their varying opinions on the new face off rules changes for 2015.
