Question to the forum:

How can allowing seniors only to return next year and limiting everybody else be a return to normalcy?

If my math is correct a Freshmen in college this year who is limited to the standard 4 year eligibility would get approximately 3.25 years of playing eligibility in their career. In your example, a senior gets the full 4 years plus this years limited season (about 25% of the schedule for a total of 4.25 years to play) but everybody else stays the same and gets 3.25 years. How is this fair or normal?

This problem effected everybody proportionately so the accommodation should be proportionate. Unless you want to limit 3/4 of those effected (Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors) you can't just offer to seniors only and believe you remedied the problem. It has to apply to the universe of those effected meaning all 4 classes (fresh, sop, junior and senior).

Underclass recruits is a whole other problem but ultimately they will get the full 4 years to compete and play which is the issue at hand, not playing time or team make up.

Bottom line, there is no answer and no one gets out of this without an impact. The best way to do this is limit the negative impact the best you can as the NCAA and move on.

Just wanted to take a minute and ask that all families think about praying for those involved in the Mount Olive Lacrosse accident on March 13, 2020. It's an extremely unfortunate incident that has left 4 people dead and 3 still in the hospital. Hug your children and tell them that you love them.

All this negative banter on this site truly loses touch of how precious life is. The ability to play a competitive sport in college is a privilege, as is life.

I will say, many players and workers across the world lost the year and jobs. The only group I hear getting it back our the NCAA players.

I don’t think I could tell my company I lost commissions because my account cancelled all the orders, you owe me money even though nothing shipped.


Give a year to the seniors, and 3 scholarships for a year to divide, and be done with it. This might be affecting 4-6 players a team, not 35. Manageable. Much can happen between a freshmen and senior year so let the others move up in normal process.

I do believe they are student athletes first, and the school did give them a full year of school credits, correct?



Yes people around the globe have lost immeasurably.... jobs, school years, proms, money etc.... and yes LIVES! The rest of the world is not getting anything back. I think the extra year of eligibility was a quick reaction by NCAA to ease the pain of the canceled season. They honestly should retract that offer. These kids should be graduating and moving on with their lives, just like the rest of the real world is forced to do. Too many kids and certainly way too many parents put way too much weight on playing this sport. The win for kids and parents should have been that lacrosse got your kid into a better school than they would have otherwise, or lacrosse landed them a great scholarship for their education. You see way too many players graduating that had their priorities way out of whack. Where the sport was more important to them and unfortunately was more important to their parents than the real life education and opportunity. If done right, your kid should be graduating with an awesome degree and a career all lined up or plans for grad school. If your kid has put all his/her eggs in the lacrosse basket and has nothing planned for the real world after graduation, I guess go play, otherwise these kids are just giving away a year of their lives.

D2 already voted to provide an extra year to all spring athletes. I think it would be hard for D1 to do otherwise at this point.

It’s done, they have the extra year. It’s the particulars that need to be finalized. Can you transfer, scholarship money, roster size...
