I read in SI that the SEC has a proposal to use all that extra revenue it receives for football and basketball to give full scholarships to every member of its minor sports teams rather than a limited amount. If that occurs the chances for a school like BC to continue to be one of the premier schools for W Lacrosse will be greatly affected, as the athletes will take the full scholarship opportunities unless their families are wealthy. This whole landscape in college athletics is changing.
This is exciting for BC Lacrosse. I am hoping that BC will have a BIG Homecoming Game at Alumni in mid-March with Yale to celebrate the NCAA Championship. Bring in the full BC Marching Band! Invite high school lacrosse teams. Get the students motivated to support the team.
They do not have the defense they had last year, so who knows how they will play, but the only thing that matters is the NCAA tournament. Maybe they will get it together, but there have been close games even with teams they should beat easily. Last year there were only two teams they struggled with and they beat both in the NCAAs.
