Terry Foy/Inside Lacrosse Calls for Reforming Tournament
by dillon77 (2022-06-14 18:06:37)

Well, in actuality, some of his recommendations include the season as well, but those changes would affect the tournament criteria. He's written on many/most of these before, but good to see them in one place, particularly given what transpired this year.

Here are his four main hits:

1) There should be a universal start date for practice and games
2) The minimum number of games should be increased, the maximum lowered
3) The NCAA Tournament field should be chosen and seeded based on wholly objective criteria, with a formula graduated beyond RPI
4) The Semifinal/Final format should be changed to allow more time to recover between games
