When are we going to get a Lacrosse team. We really

need one. We already have a great stadium for it. Riggs Field is perfect and lacrosse and soccer are played at two different times of year. Honestly, I think I enjoy watching lacrosse more than soccer. IT is a sport that is getting more and more tv time in ESPN and will increase with the ACC Network. GEt it done CLemson! You can do it!

A lacrosse field would take up to many parking spots!


It would be great to have NCAA LAX, but don't forget....

….Clemson's club team. they are consistently very good. My son played Club at App State and they played Clemson. It is fun. To your point it would be a cheap addition and you can add a women's team at the same time. All can be played at Riggs. It has my vote for my IPTAY money!

Club Lacrosse. It was my freshman year and we got going in the spring of 1975. Fritz Waidner, a local car dealer, was our coach. I remember calling his house once and asking to speak with Coach Waidner. His wife had no idea who that was.

It was a hoot trying to teach some good ol' boys the game.

D1 lacrosse at Clemson would be a giant success on many levels. Perfect fit.

For those with no little of Lacrosse, The use of Riggs field would not impact parking. Great sport - had 3 sons that played in HiSchool - one all-state in NJ. Have 2 G'sons playing in B'ham & Hilton Head. Probably fastest growing sport in the south. Great tradition for f'ball players that aren't quite D1 football. FYI - Jim Brown was all american at both. I know - who's he.


Would much rather have the Return of Wrestling team!

Clemson used to be in the Top 20 several times when there was still a team. Thanks Title IX!


Wrestling?? There are schools dropping wrestling every year!


Posted: Feb 24, 2019 3:06 PM
 

Lacrosse is definitely a fast growing sport. High schools in SC add regularly adding it!

The "fastest growing sport" cliche.

Lacrosse is very regional and peaks at the college level.


Hey T I P, you know what really sux? Men's Tennis

Re: Wrestling?? There are schools dropping wrestling every year!

Dropping because of Title IX. I realize Lacrosse is growing rapidly, but to me, it's Soccer with Sticks.


Kinda like Soccer is Cross Country with a ball? ;)

Sport when actually scoring a goal makes the "Top Ten Plays"


Like soccer with sticks?

you must have watched a women's lax game. This pig is from the GA HS state championship game last spring

Good ol' Lassiter High School!


and yet there are still more D1 wrestling programs

Than men's lacrosse ones. 80 vs 73

Jim Brown? One of the greatest running backs in history, both in college and in the NFL. A virtual giant with WR speed.

The only thing you and Clemson have in common is you and your other alias’ continual trolling of its fan site.

I’m not sure giant success would happen. I don’t watch a lot of lacrosse but I know how good Duke, Syracuse, UNC, and several other ACC schools are.

At least we would know what the rest of the conference feels like playing football.


Re: When are we going to get a Lacrosse team. We really


Posted: Feb 24, 2019 3:27 PM
 

We already know how the rest of the conference feels playing us in football.

Reference Tiger Men’s Basketball since 1953.

Hey, I'm okay with that, but I'm just not sure it would go over in a football Mecca like Clemson. Even a niche sport like Lacrosse isn't cheap.


We have a Lacrosse team that plays full contact


Posted: Feb 24, 2019 1:55 PM
 

& used to play on Riggs Field


If we're going over to the dork side of the force...


Posted: Feb 24, 2019 2:19 PM
 

we should have a light saber team. It's will probably generate about the same amount of funds with a much lower overhead.

The uninformed are amazing. Try it some time. Or try to join the club team.

It's a great game! There is so much more to it than hitting with sticks. As a matter of fact, that often results in a penalty. If you have never seen one live, you should go before giving it a negative review. I agree with those who said that it would simply take a field and 2 goals. Most kids have their own sticks. Helmets and uniforms would be minimal. If there is a tile IX issue, women's lacrosse could be added, as well.


I like lacrosse


Posted: Feb 24, 2019 3:39 PM
 

however I wouldn't hold your breath on it being added as a sport at Clemson any time soon. I don't think we want to face the likes of UNC, Duke, Syracuse, and Notre Dame lol


Yep, it’s a no brainer as far as I’m concerned.

Fast growing sport, no stadium construction needed, and a perfect for Clemson’s student body and conference affiliation.

This "regional" sport is not the norm now. Was in Columbia (didn't mean to swear) last summer for a youth tournament - over 100 teams participated. Expand you paradigms.


There are Only 73 D1 men's programs and 116 women's


Posted: Feb 24, 2019 5:59 PM
 

80% or more are on the east coast


Re: When are we going to get a Lacrosse team. We really


Posted: Feb 24, 2019 5:42 PM
 

Just like every other recent decision, they may add a women's team but will never add a men's team.

My son at LU informed me that the Tigers lost 8-14.

I do not see it happening.
It would mess up or men to women athlete ratio.
Then you pour money into a nonrevenue sport.
I just don’t see it.
Get softball going. Then fix men’s basketball which IS broken.

I went to a professional match in Atlanta and left early we were so bored out of our skulls. And Atl won the so called title lol Those with kids playing are the only who really care about it.

Let's dip more into the football revenue. NOT!

Pretty sure that's one of those sports yankees play in their private catholic schools. Which means we'd have to bring in even more yankees in to fill out a team. Bring back wrestling instead

Get it straight. It’s the elite WASP boarding schools that play it. Known as Lax bros, arrogant and entitled, and I for one have zero interest in it.

Will drag on football revenue..


I actually like lacrosse but


Posted: Feb 25, 2019 2:08 PM
 

we lose money on every other sport except football and basketball. Unless it can self-sustain, I say it's a no.


I read many months ago that baseball


Posted: Feb 26, 2019 10:22 AM
 

Was also self sustaining at clemson.

I guess clemson gets enough fans at the home games to sustain the program.
