When it comes to Men’s Division I Lacrosse, “Title IX is the roadblock.”

Now, just a few days ago, viewers on ESPN2 got to hear about what we’ve been talking about at Saving Sports for a number of years now. On Saturday, May 21, during a broadcast of an NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse playoff game between the University of Denver and Johns Hopkins, ESPN’s Quint Kessenich decided to speak plainly about what was holding back the growth of the men’s game. His answer: “Title IX is the roadblock.” Watch the video for the full conversation.
