We’ve all said it. “You gotta pick your battles.” Parents say it about raising their kids, teachers say it about classroom management, and coaches are saying it every day at practice.

In the past three weeks, since JV lacrosse practices started back on March 9, I’ve made some conscious decisions to do a few things differently with this team. Call it A) an experiment, B) being practical or realistic, or C) a compromise; it’s probably a little bit of D) “All the above.”

Short-stick defensive midfielders get overlooked. They toil with tough defensive assignments and get picked on constantly. “Dodge the shorty” is the refrain. Most offenses are built to attack this position 20 to 30 times per game. It helps if you’re a good athlete who doesn’t mind the grind or box scores full of zeroes.

I thought lacrosse shutouts were rare, especially at the collegiate level, but lightning just struck twice in the past eight days. A (good) Division III team got shut out about ten days ago, and then a Division I Top 20 team got shut out this past weekend (just a week after they defeated a Top 5 team).

Any Given Gameday.

No. 1 Syracuse (7-0, 2-0 ACC) used a high-powered offense and stifling defense to cruise to a 19-7 victory against No. 4 Duke (7-2, 0-1 ACC) in front of a season-high crowd of 11,408 Sunday, March 22 at the Carrier Dome. | Box Score

from Inside Lacrosse
Much was certain in the Carrier Dome on Sunday afternoon. Syracuse’s Ben Williams was going to dominate Duke’s Jack Rowe at the face-off X. The Orange attack would have and capitalize on ample opportunities to score. The SU defense, strong in numbers and led by goalie Bobby Wardwell, would clamp down on the Blue Devils and make star midfielder Myles Jones a non-factor. And with the game unfolding that way from start to finish, No. 1 Syracuse (7-0) proved superior to No. 4 Duke (7-2) in a 19-7 win in front of 11,408 fans. | with Rich Barnes Photos

When the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Rules Committee made its recommendations to rule changes last summer, the rational given for making it illegal to carry the ball in the back of the stick was simple: "The committee does not believe carrying the ball in the back of the stick was ever intended to be part of the game." However, both before and after the proposal was approved, many commentators connected it to a different motivation: a push to reduce the importance of face-off specialists by making the results closer to 50/50 and eliminating the ability of a dominant FOGO to determine the outcome of a game.
