Lacrosse the Internet: February 22, 2014

Lacrosse in the south and more. This is your giddy-up before the day explodes.

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

When You See Southern Lacrosse for the First Time, You'll Understand at Last Why You Came This Way
This is an interesting point that I hadn't considered:

There is a place to put college lacrosse games in February . . . in the South.

After more than 4,400 spectators attended last June’s Major League Lacrosse showdown between the Boston Cannons and the Rochester Rattlers in Kennesaw, Georgia (in the venue that will host this year’s MLL Championship Game), the metropolitan Atlanta area became a desirable destination for major college lacrosse, as well. A good crowd was on hand when two top ten Division I women’s lacrosse teams met in Kennesaw on February 9, and Syracuse will face St. John’s there on March 8.

If coaches refuse to move the calendar, getting games down south in the early part of the eyar isn't the worst idea I've ever heard. This is a pretty sharp approach, especially considering it's coming from a non-traditional area.
