By their logic, all of the fall sports athletes now deserve an extra year for missing their season, too And if there is no spring season next year, the same lacrosse players who gained an extra year in April should be able to stockpile a 2nd year of eligibility. How about 3 more years if the cycle repeats itself in 2022? When does this madness stop?

Going to guess that your kid wasn't impacted by this. Typical

It should have been seniors only, no reason a freshman,soph or juniors needed to have a year tacked on.. it was a mistake and these repercussions are now going to be felt through all D-1 sports. it was a move based on emotion last year. it needs to be fixed now.

First off, its all divisions not just D1. And secondly, how do you propose they "fix this"??

Seniors only..

Well it’s too late. It’s over. The NCAA is proposing the same thing for fall athletes too. Time to move on.

After listening to NCAA chief medical officer press conference and talking to several women’s lacrosse coaches across all divisions there is real concern for a spring season.

You fix it by not granting anyone the additional year. It stinks but does the high school senior get an additional year. Does anyone anywhere else? COVID stinks and if you cant play as a senior you graduate and hope to heck u had 3 great years. If you are a junior and you now miss two years you move on as well. For the record and before I get bashed. I am the parent of a senior in college (D1 player) who graduated and is moving on. I also have a sophomore in high school who missed his spring season. As a parent it was awful but we will all get through this and emotions are making decisions when they shouldn't. The best solution is no additional years for anyone bc the domino effect of incoming athletes and costs to programs are not worth it.

Did you expect anything different. The NCAA is so far left did you expect an NCAA “doctor” to say let’s play. They are no different than the media. All you get/hear is the 1 sided argument they want you to hear.

I’m gonna get some heat but I can take it! You go to university to get educated and you play a sport, at whatever level. But you go to get educated. The NCAA allowing another year has nothing to do with education; it’s to appease the player and parent and big money sports. It makes a mess of university sports budgets.

Did seniors graduate and now pursuing a Masters Degree in their fifth year? A second major?

To be honest a vast majority of seniors did not take the fifth year. They graduated, got a job (hopefully) and moved on with their lives. It stinks that their athletic careers were cut short and they missed a formal graduation.

For the record I advised not offering the extra year to everyone. But that was big money sports driving that, not women’s lacrosse. Some student athletes were or are now in programs that can win a national championship. It’s their prerogative to stay and try and win a championship while taking classes in whatever. For very few the sport is bigger than the degree.

I happen to agree with your opinion that the NCAA shouldn't have given an extra year of eligibility to everyone. Just wondering how this is related to big money sports? To my knowledge, the NCAA decision only applies to spring sports. Men’s football and basketball are not played in the spring. What big money sports were involved?

Sorry. Got ahead of myself. If football goes the way of spring sports, which it appears it will, then revenue generating sports will be involved. I might have tipped my hand with that comment.

Just a point of reference. People say football and basketball pay for all other sports. The NCAA reported In 2015 only 24 FBS football programs were in the black. Almost all other football programs and basketball programs LOSE money. All universities subsidize their athletics. They invest in athletics” to provide educational value to student athletes and enhance overall campus life”. The NCAA reported that only 50% of the 128 top basketball programs are in the black. When coaches salaries, training complexes, and arenas are factored in only a handful of basketball programs generate a true surplus. It will be the college/university that determines whether to subsidize athletics not the football or basketball programs.

Well, NYIT cancelled all sports for the next two years. This will set a precedent with many private small schools. D2 athletics are in trouble.

This is a great point and goes far beyond just lacrosse. So many of these D1 football universities have lost their season already. They will need to continue to pay monies for the things you mentioned above, i.e. - scholarships, staff, stadiums...etc. Now they are really in the RED. So many of these universities will need to make budget cuts and trim the so called fat. Take a school like USC, your football season was cancelled. USC has (25) D1 sports programs (11 Men & 14 Women). If this COVID trend continues I could see them cancelling half the programs. Take womens lacrosse, it has to be very expensive to field a team with no income coming in. I hope it does not happen, but we may see a lot of changes especially if this drags into the spring. NYIT, a small D2 program on Long Island just cancelled all sports for at least (2) years. Sadly they will not be the last to do this....

densest athletics move so far during this pandemic. Closing for 2 years makes no sense unless NYIT was looking to shutter and greatly cut athletics anyway and is using this as an out.
