Youth softball in MI is booming. There are a ton of girls playing and indoor facilities popping up everywhere.

I don't know any girls that play lacrosse but I know dozens that play SB, including one at another MAC school. SB and BB are a deep part of the Michigan culture.

Nickle you and the Fan are preaching to the choir, Lacrosse is a "hoity-toity" sport dominated by East Coast schools of which many are private. Hell, such national athletic powers like Stony Brook and Drexel were in the NCAA Top Ten last year. It, in no way, will be a legitimate replacement for softball of which bye the way, we have an established and attractive facility. I suspect we will be forced to retrofit Rynearson for such play unless we could convince Big Money U-M to allow us to use their dedicated and spectacular Lacrosse facility on State St.

All that stated, the MAC has an existing six team Lacrosse league with CMU, Akron and Kent St being members along with UDM and Youngstown State. The undefeated champion last year, however, was of course a private east coast school, Robert Morris.

Title IX was a well intended law, but in this case it has unintended consequences. EMU Lacrosse simply is a "callisthenic" to comply with Title IX and NCAA requirements. It is simply all about the MONEY! And that makes me sad.

I need to know who on this board attended an EMU soft ball game or watched one on TV in the last 20 years.

NOTE: if a relative or family friend was on the team it doesnt count.

I have - but as I said in a previous post, EMU softball was always mired at the bottom of the MAC and had a hard time generating wins and program momentum. It was a disappointing choice to cut, but somewhat logical in terms of clout and lack of success.
Gentile was not a good recruiter (and maybe not a good coach).
