COLLEGE CROSSECAST Ep. 94: The Shot Clock Episode

We were legally obligated to do a podcast on the shot clock. This is that podcast.

If you may have heard, the NCAA Lacrosse rules committee decided to bring a shot clock to men’s lacrosse. Chris did a nifty podcast to get some coaches’ reaction to the new rule. But you know what else you need? A second podcast, but with the opinions of our writers.

The usual gang’s on for a summer podcast to break down our thoughts to the new NCAA rules. Safe, Chris, and Jake join me as we talk about the shot clock (8:00) and how we think it’ll affect the game. We bring up the zone defense and other arguments as well (21:00). We also talk about the return of the crease dive (32:00), the shortening of the substitution box (34:37) and the NCAA emphasizing good old sportsmanship (36:10) in something that we all know is Ohio State and Syracuse related but nobody loves a talking point more than the NCAA. There’s also a new video replay rule apparently (39:30). We wrap up with a little discussion on who benefits from the new rules (43:20) before Chris takes us on a journey around the coaching changes throughout college lacrosse.
