Rebounding after a bye week isn’t easy. Some players use the time to reset themselves through meditation, acupuncture, and maybe even a soak in the tub. Others can’t handle the lack of motion so they still go hard wherever they, doing whatever they do. Ah, life as a competitive athlete in any sport.

Attacking the stigmas of lacrosse (The Loquitur)
Just a bunch of LAX BROS… the stigma that surrounds a sport that dates back to ancient Native American culture is often seen as a “privileged white kids sport.” Lacrosse holds a much bigger meaning then a game, as a sport that continues to grow at a rapid pace we will defiantly continue to see a change in the dynamic that makes a lacrosse player. Last time I checked having long, luscious hair does not make you privileged nor does is make you a bro… but it does look nice after you go top cheese!
Penn State men’s lacrosse indicates a disparity between analytics and the polls (The Daily Collegian)
Charles Barkley, the NBA analyst with a dialect that warps the meaning, and hilarity, of the term “terrible,” once said analytics were “just some crap that people who were really smart made up. Lacrosse analytics is factored by a teams goals for and against, it doesn’t factor in a team’s win/loss ratio, which is the primary determining factor of a team’s ranking in the polls. In a recent case the Penn State men’s lacrosse beat a talented Penn team 14-13, but the victory doesn’t hold a lot of value due to the fact they only won by 1 goal…

Check Out A Men’s Lacrosse Game: A Former Hater’s Take (Onward State)

When I say flat, I mean that I thought that there would be so much scoring that any single goal would be relatively unimportant. I also thought that lacrosse would just be hockey, but without the challenge of skating.”
