Just looked at the MHSAA website. Lacrosse is not a sanctioned sport in the state.

Therefore, a public university in Mississippi has no business using state tax dollars to sponsor a varsity sport that, by definition, can have no Mississippi participants on the roster. 07-coffee3

So when are you going to start a massive crusade against crew. An absurd number of P5's sponsor it in states that think it's only a haircut.

why do you think that would cause a split?

Yeah, with ECU coming aboard, it will have 12 and that event will cause a split. S Miss will make 13 when they get added as S Miss wont add lax unless they know the Big East/American will take them. It would be absolutely embarrassing for S Miss to have to resort to the A Sun or SoCon for a spot. Yeah, know S Miss isn't in the American, but they want to be.

Yeah, it'd be terrible for Southern Miss's WLAX team to have to associated with teams like ODU.
As if ODU plans to stay long term there in the ASUN. Womens lax is a much better fit geographically to ODU. S Miss looks on it more as a help to get into the AAC.

ODU and ASun was a marriage of convenience brought forth by ODU's sub-mediocrity for most of its women's lacrosse program's existence. Conversely, field hockey and its multiple national titles (and with USA field hockey's national training center in adjacent Virginia Beach) made it much more attractive, and thus found a home in the Big East upon leaving the CAA.

But women's lax has improved pretty rapidly in the past few years, and went to its first NCAA tournament last year. If the AAC does sponsor women's lacrosse, I could see ODU moving there for that sport.

GA, FL and TX sponsor it. Southern Miss wants and needs to be ahead of the curve. Fat chance crew will ever be sponsored in the Magnolia State.

So S Miss is justified in spending Mississippi residents' tax dollars ... to fund varsity sports for high school players from GA, FL, and Texas?

30-35 roster spots, 12 max schollies.

That's a lot of out-of-state tuition would be paid to Mississippi

Bingo.

Not to mention if Southern Miss starts a program, high schools will eventually follow. Southern Miss will need to provide the infrastructure to develop the sport st the high school level - first with camps and coaches' clinics, then by hosting tournaments for the few schools with programs, then as a postseason site for varsity competition.
