  1. Lacrosse Locker Room
    285 Babcock Street
    “A former laundry room and fitness center in the building’s basement is being converted to a new locker room for the men’s varsity lacrosse team.”

    Can we be honest and say how the wrestling room was usurped and is now being given to wrestling’s replacements (lax)? It was not a former fitness center. It was a former dungeon of a wrestling room, hardly befitting a D1 team, and will now become a luxury locker room for the 2-12 lacrosse team.

      1. You’re correct, anonymous sir. Thankfully a little less salt in the open wound. I am not wrong, however, in pointing out that after one abysmal season, lax is already receiving more financial and marketing support than wrestling (ton of NCAA qualifiers, conference champs, All Americans, nearly perfect graduation rate, etc) received in 30+ years. A quick fact check from anyone would unveil how skewed and wrong that is. I am not wrong in pointing out that BU cut a sport more economically accessible for a variety of socioeconomic populations and replaced with a sport traditionally (esp in New England) populated by athletes hailing from affluent backgrounds. I am not wrong in highlighting how the whole lax replacing wrestling situation is, in fact, wrong.
