I don't mean to gloat (Ed. Note: Yes I do) but it'll be right around 60 degrees in Philly today!! That's BBQ weather .... BIG BBQ weather if you will. I saw a ton of "Lacrosse must start in March!@#!" #HotTakes last week ..... but today ...

It'll probably snow on Sunday after I said all that. But let's eat, watch lax, and be thankful for the beautiful spring-like day today! Let's go to the Big Board(s).

(Ed Note: As always, all rankings based off the USILA/BOSSES Poll.)

Philly Board College Crosse Games Of The Day.

  • 11:00 Lehigh v. Furman. Great way to kick off the day. This one has major Crossecast bragging rights on the line as it involves a Southern Conference team and a Patriot League squad. Make sure to catch some of this with your grapefruit this morning.

    *Aforementioned grapefruit whizzes by Eri's head.*

    We'll have plenty of time to respectfully discuss College Crosse's fluid definition of the term "Philly Team" later in the comments section later.)

  • 12:00 Villanova at Harvard. Wildcats v. Crimson should be a great one. Villanova could play a major role this year when it comes to at-large bids on Selection Sunday. This is the first of three Ivy games for the Cats. With only 8 at-large bids available, it would be HUGE for the Big East on Selection Sunday if the Cats could take down one or two Ivy teams, as it would boost the Big East's profile in the committee's eyes. 

  • 1:00, Drexel v. Virginia. Virginia and Drexel games are usually really close. UVA won by 4 points,last year but the three games prior (2012-2014) were all decided by 1 point (all UVA victories). This is a tough series but the Dragons are still looking for their first win over UVA since 2007. With a home opener against a struggling UVA, Drexel may have what it takes to pull off the upset.

  • 3:00, Penn State at Cornell. Cornell hasn't played a game since their first round loss to Albany last May, while the Nittany Lions have been humming at 2-0. A win over Cornell would be huge for Penn State to demonstrate their 2016 fast start is for real.
