from Dan Witmer / JustLacrosse Upstate
I agree with most people that the rules made to the college game last year were good for the game – actually, great for the game. The speed of the game improved, sideline horns were eliminated, quick re-starts in the defensive end got the game moving, and the wider substitution areas made for quick subbing advantages if players hustled. You can argue all you want about the enigmatic invisible shot clock, but for the few number of times it was enforced, I didn’t think it was that big of a deal.

But one new rule stunk, and it still stinks this year. I’m talking about the freedom the winning team has to run in and out of the offensive box while playing keep away from the desperate defense.
