Mapagator, Phidelt, Couldn't agree more. I wear my Gator gear at the US Lacrosse convention and get strange looks and an occasional snicker or comment like, I didn't know you guys played lacrosse. Last year I got some snide comments about how poor Florida was. On the womens side, an aggravating factor is the unwillingness to let anything into "their" game that even hints of the mens game. UF's run and gun style carries a strong appeal to players and is perfect to take advantage of typical southern abilities. Hard to argue that the south produces the best athletes. The stall is the only way to counter the obvious physical advantage. I don't blame the coaches for using the stall, I blame the administrators for burying their heads in the sand and stunting the sport's growth. Bottom line: They are scared. They see the train coming and are doing everything they can to stop it. They can slow it down, but, sooner or later, it will flatten them. As more and more southern schools pick up the game, the balance of power will shift. I don't think it will ever totally go away from the Northeast, but the south will continue to make inroads. Imagine if more football coaches turned their guys onto lax as "the" off-season activity. With the speed, quickness and attitude football players bring to the game, it would be something to see.
