The NCAA recently did a study on the connection between alcohol and drug use with collegiate athletics, and the biggest takeaway from the survey is that lacrosse players get after it off the field.
The values in the boxes above represent the percentage of players who used the substance over the last year. In the graphic below, the number indicates where each sport ranks.
Most of it confirms what we already knew. Hockey players drink themselves numb, baseball loves a fat lip, and track stars aren’t burning down heaters before races. Lacrosse just ran away with the degenerate title, though. Generally these kids come from money, so it makes all the sense in the world that usage of the Colombian booger sugar is over 10 percent more than the next highest number.
The real shocker and disappointed is hoops. Dead last in every category. The fucking tennis team is making basketball look like the straight edge club that goes to the local coffee shop for slam poetry on Friday nights. Football didn’t have much of a showing, either. Granted, when you’re the two biggest money making sports with the most recognizable athletes on campus, coaches and administrators are probably limiting and watching over every minute of free time you have like a hawk..
