I love lacrosse. Everybody knows that about me. But what some may not realize is that I'm not an idiot. I'm not oblivious to the fact that lacrosse still isn't the biggest and most popular sport in the world. One day it will be, but that time is not now. And with that understanding, I'm willing to admit that the month of March belongs to college basketball. As much as I'd love for college lacrosse to be the bigger story, it's not going to get bigger than March Madness anytime soon.
But guess what, bitches? Those calendars just flipped over. And while there is still one final weekend in the college basketball season, the months of April and May belong to college lacrosse. We're halfway through the season. All these teams are dialed in. There's nothing but conference schedules ahead. Heated rivalries. All sorts of chaos leading into the NCAA tournament in May. Plus the weather is getting beautiful, it's the start of sundress season, there's really nothing to not love about this time of the year. And it's all thanks to college lacrosse.
So get yourself ready for the 2nd half of the season with this week's episode of The Crease Dive. We talk about contenders and pretenders throughout the first half of the year, some major shit pumpings in the Big Ten, another great weekend in the Ivy League, break out some new segments, talk about Jared Bernhardt's road to the NFL, and wrap things up with our picks and previews for this weekend's slate of games on the college lax schedule.
