Hot Pot Of Lax: ESPN’s Inside The Program

ESPNU The Experts lacrosse

During the 2011 season, will be taking a deep dive into the Syracuse men’s lacrosse program to get the details on what it takes to be an elite lacrosse program. This is a pretty cool feature for ESPN to be doing, and I think we can all agree that featuring Syracuse is a great move. I have no doubt there will be plenty of mainstream sports fans converted into college lacrosse fans thanks to this new series.

In this week’s installment, Coach Desko and Coach Rogers talk about their preseason exhibition games. Check it out!

Speaking of Syracuse, here’s a clip from The Experts, a show on ESPNU I have yet to see. Connor Wilson recommended it to me yesterday and I’ve got the DVR set to record the next showing. The show features quite a few big lacrosse names!

  1. Herein lies the rub with helmets in women’s lax (in which I am no expert but a complete newbie):

    “According to research by Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, not only does the sport have the third-highest rate of concussion among female scholastic sports (behind soccer and basketball), but its in-game rate is only about 15 percent less than the rougher male version.”

    So where are the calls for helmets in women’s soccer and women’s basketball? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
