Hokie Lacrosse In Crisis
A story published in the Collegiate Times this week gave us just a glimpse into the disfunctional lacrosse program residing in Blacksburg. The story has made some noise in the lacrosse community, and rightfully so. It certainly makes for an interesting read.
It reflects rather poorly on the Virginia Tech athletic department that there was no comment from anyone in the chain of command. Hopefully the current uproar will prove that they can't ignore the lacrosse program.
Kudos to author Thomas Emerick (a former scribe at Planet Blacksburg) who gave this aspect of the story a very fair slant. Clearly something is rotten in Denmark.
Be sure to read some of the comments at the bottom of the article, it's sparked quite a bit of debate.
A Vanishing Act
