Showing some love for the under-appreciated standouts in the NESCAC
BREAKING: I am just as confused by the NESCAC right now as everyone else is.
Because let’s face it, not all of us have time to stare at a grainy stream of two D3 teams you’ve never heard of.
In the iconic final scene of Gladiator, after killing Commodus, Maximus says with his dying breath “There was a dream that was Rome. It shall be realized.” In D3 lacrosse, the day-to-day parity that helps make lacrosse at this level so compelling does not exist on the level of championships. Only 6 current D3 teams have […]
