Lacrosse the Internet: January 1, 2014

I dated this post correctly. All bets are off on me doing it correctly for the next 12 months.

This is obviously your favorite site, but other people actually write important stuff sometimes. Now is that sometimes.

A Full Pint

2014 College Crosse Season Preview
Starting today, the site will start rolling out its 2014 season preview. It's going to be . . . something. The intent is to publish at least 40 pieces from today through February 1st, the start of the season (SPRING SPORT!). That's around two preview pieces a day, likely rising to about three or four when all is said and done. The preview will consist of big picture items -- conference outlooks, etc. -- and some more granular items. It's going to be a haul, but there is going to be a ton of volume coming your way in the coming weeks.

This is also where I stop sleeping until June.

2013's Biggest Stories: 1 - The Formation of Big Ten Lacrosse
Conference realignment was, at least from a universal interest standpoint, the biggest story of the year in college lacrosse. The volume of pageviews associated with realignment stories dwarfed anything else that was written on College Crosse in the last year, and it wasn't even close. People remain obsessed with realignment and it's one of the few developments in the game that has captured the minds of fans of all teams.

Conference realignment -- by simply changing the landscape -- has ensnared all into its machinations, and I think the only thing that may eclipse it from an universal interest perspective is if FBS dominoes start falling and schools of that ilk begin sponsoring the game at the Division I level in large numbers.

Sports faces of 2013: Dan Chemotti
WHY YOU KNOW HIM: The University of Richmond named Chemotti its first varsity men’s lacrosse coach Oct. 29, 2012. The Spiders went to the national titlist to get Chemotti. As offensive coordinator, he had helped Loyola win the 2012 crown.

When I was picking colleges the biggest factor was whether I could avoid "drop in" visits from my meddling parents.
