On the contrary…baseball was invented about 200 years after lacrosse, which the settlers could never get a handle on ;)
However, if the PL "really" expects to be able to compete consistently with the ‘big powers’ of FCS (CAA and SoCon) going to scholarship as opposed to need-based grants is the only way. We’re not looking to spend more (proportionately to current cost), but to be free of the income formula restrictions. It will increase to available talent pool significantly and, likely, increase the academic profile of the team. The wrestling team’s academic profile increased significantly since going to scholarships. If the PL does not go this route it will become irrelevant like the Ivy League. Unfortunately, we don’t have the ‘cashe’ of the Ivies to accept such a trade off.
