Nitt Links: What Is This Thing You Call Lacrosse?

It's friday, friday.....

Sorry about that. Anyway, I'm fresh out of debatable topics for friday. The last week of classes has just about drained all of my brain power. Although, I'll admit that a somewhat steady diet of Gunniess has not only improved my concentration it has improved my ability to open up these posts with something more entertaining to read, and entertaining to write.

In all seriousness though, "if seriousness is even salvageable at this point" What's your gut for this season? Best case, worst case. We'll revisit this a few times before the season starts and see how it changed. I guess that's what the little graph on the left hand side is for, but now we can talk about our feelings. That's always fun.

Oh and in reaction to last night First Round draft think about this: The 2009 PSU DL could've been: Aaron Maybin and Mo Evans the ends and Jared Odrick and Phil Taylor the tackles. Yes please.

No. 8 Hofstra Lacrosse Host No. 20 Penn State In Key CAA Game Saturday Night

Both the men's and women's programs are overlooked on campus. Both of their coaches live on my street at home, the women's coach being my neighbor. So am I bias? Yes. But hey, football and basketball 24/7 can get a little old.


I don't like Rich Rod but something about using tape of his team getting crushed makes me feel a little bad for him.
