The HS kids are owed nothing by the NCAA or the university. The student athletes on the team have put in the time and effort. They are owed loyalty by the school.
From a dad with a kid in college. I don't mean that in a sarcastic way but every HS senior doesn't get a re-do. Life doesn't work that way and it has really messed with the natural order of things.

I agree. The NCAA really didn't think this through. By being "fair", they created a train wreck that is going to last for *many* years. Hopefully, there isn't the next time, but if there is, "Sorry the season was canceled. Yeah, COVID stunk for everyone. Sorry again. Good luck with the rest of your life." would be a lot better for a lot more people in the long run.

Who does the train wreck affect? Not the kids in college. So I guess the NCAA made the right choice.

I’d argue that it did effect kids in college. That transfer portal is out of control. Look at the roster sizes this year, nearly 70 players at Denver? How does having an extra year of players, a huge bench and rotating new players into the mix not affect the entire team?

I feel bad for the dad that held his kid back once...or even twice.....that coached his kid as much as possible....making sure his kid payed attack and faced off all the time....was always on man up....scored a bunch of goals.....made sure his kid was on the best travel teams.....went to every prospect camp.....and now his kid is riding the bench waiting for all these older kids to cycle through their extra year or even two because of COVID. Yeah...I feel bad for that dad! LOL. I actually feel bad for that kid.....

Agree... original quote demonstrates the stupidity of one particular person. We all should feel bad for the HS players for the next couple of years. Not because some may sit on a bench in college but because many of them won't even get to play lacrosse in college and experience the comradery of being part of a team. They may not have been the fool in their HS but they were certainly good enough to play in college and now won't have the opportunity because of the knock-on effect of the college players that all get an extra year of eligibility. Nobody is angry at the college student. Parents and players are upset with the NCAA because the parents may have wanted something better for their son and the player won't have the opportunity.

How is that different from the parents with kids in school? Who want to play, but 2 years in they have 6 games under their belt and every week is uncertain. They’ve been busting their butts for these schools for two years with barely anything to show. But cry a River for the HS kid.

No wonder they wanted my 17 year old senior to reclass as a 2022 and they would sign him. Probably would red shirt him the first year too. SMH
