1000% spot on

25 years old !!!

Its hard to like this sport anymore....

Did you even read the article? One kid has had his college career wrecked by injury, one kid is playing on his 5th year, and one kid is a great person. Get over yourself.
Nobody is blaming the "kids" young men but there is a level of absurdity to be a 5th year player and be 23 or older. I realize there are unique circumstances such as some players trying junior hockey and then deciding to go back to college but this is the exception.

I’m sure they’re all great people. A 25 year old still has no business playing college sports. Normal kids graduate at 22. I think this is beyond ridiculous and embarrassing. NCAA should have never granted an extra year. Where does it end? Should be like HS. You get 4 years period. Sometimes circumstances arise that are unfortunate, but that’s life!

If you are an on age college freshman, you are 18 competing against 25 year old teammates. Just let that sink in for a minute.

Who cares how old they are. Not every top player is 25. There are only a handful of 25 year old's playing now and there are plenty of Freshman having an impact. Stop wearing your mask in your own car.. You are what is wrong with the world today.

You mean like Mike Sowers. Went back to win the T, but he hardly does anything special. He's getting outplayed by a freshman. Or 5th year ND Fogo who was owned by another freshman?

There are a handful of freshman playing you have no clue what you are talking about , rosters are at 60 plus , half the kids stay home to watch the team play on the weekend . Oh did i mention that this does not end for 3 more years because of the transfer portal so if you say a statement make sure you know the facts. High school kids coming into college next year and the 2 following years are screwed as well . Remember the current freshman class did not ask for 60 plus kids on a roster they went to the school looking at what kids were leaving and now with the transfer portal they can take a 25 year old over the current commit coming in so it does not end . Kids just want an opportunity and they are clearly not getting it for the next 3 years ......

Exactly! And don’t forget about the kids currently enrolled at Ivies who just got one more year since they didn’t play!

Don’t forget that these 60 kid rosters are full of recruits who are on the team as squads , not starters. Sourced it straight from the horses. One coach told me that they recruited a girl just so her team would not have to play against her.

You're right, it's life, just like HS kids getting shafted because of COVID. get over it and move on. Life is tough, right?

Go play D3, this problem doesn't exist there. your kid can still play lacrosse, get a great education, and be done in 4 years.

They have their entire lives to work. Happy for them to get the opportunity that they also lost because of Covid.

Really. What a fool. White privilege?? Maybe 2 parents who worked their rear ends off, didn’t get arrested, didn’t have warrants and didnt fight cops. Not a fan of hold backs and I agree that the article highlighted a situation that should not be normalized.
