Talking Bull: LAX anyone?

Why Not LAX?

The kingdom of lacrosse on SBNation, also known as "In Lax We Trust" is talking about expansion of lacrosse in division one college sports.

Why Buffalo Should be the Next Team to go to Division-I - In Lax We Trust
The University at Buffalo is a decent sized school, with a student body of 28,601 people. The school fields 11 different men's and women's sports. Its the largest school in a hot bed for lacrosse, however the team is not at the highest level of college lacrosse. The team is one of 213 members of the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association. They have experienced success in the league recently, winning CCLA South Division in 2010 and the PCLL championship in the 2011 after switching conferences. They currently play in the PCLL with Boston College, Boston University, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Nebraska, and New Hampshire. The Buffalo Bulls are ranked tenth in the MCLA.

Generally, if the university could add anything, I'd like to see Hockey. I am aware that adding hockey is not and might never be financially viable (unless some big donors come through). So maybe Lax, another solid regional sport could be a solid add for Buffalo.

Now the politicians need to be dealt with.

MAC BracketBusters Review: The Afternoon Games - Hustle Belt
This went from "obvious loss" to "decisive thrashing" in quite a hurry. At no point were the Bulls able to get any sort of decent run back into the game, or if they did, they were already far out of reach. Javon McCrea was limited to 24 minutes of action, not really factoring into either side before fouling out, and the SDSU guards of Nate Wolters and Griffan Callahan combined for 43 points. For Buffalo, Mitchell Watt led with 15 points but swatted nary a shot, Zach Filzen was decent from the 3-point line to finish with 13 points and Tony Watson II had some nice minutes to end up with 11.

"South Dakota State took us to the woodshed today," Witherspoon said. "We weren't physical at all. We weren't aggressive enough."
