Although of course my interest in this issue is based on seeing how many games face-off play has cost ND. Certainly, we need a top face-off guy.

The special teams comparison is fair enough, but face-off play in lacrosse determines possession, while special teams play in football does not, and between different teams face-off play seems to vary to a much greater extent than special teams play.

I still think that the important of face-offs in lacrosse is anomalous, given how possession is relatively fixed.
