I was involved with it when I attended, and still keep in touch with it. I would like to know if you have any intention of following the highly successful model at the University of Denver, and making men's and women's lacrosse a varsity D-1 sport? I understand you are constrained by Title IX, but it's hard to argue with the fact that the state and the nation are crazy about lacrosse. Wouldn't the CSU be smart by taking advantage of the burgeoning sport, and making it a recruitment tool by embracing lacrosse as a varsity D-1 sport?
