Beautiful day for lacrosse in Buffalo for a scrimmage against Team Canada. Next stop: San Francisco!

A post shared by NDLacrosse (@ndlacrosse) on

Shout out to Notre Dame who took down (Team) Canada yesterday in their scrimmage in Buffalo.

Defending champion (and preseason #1, in my honest opinion) Maryland gave Team USA all it could handle last night before the Terps fell 10-9 on a beautiful night at Tierney Field at US Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Md.

The U.S. national team, at least a portion of the 49-player training team, got a big test on Saturday night in the opening game of the Team USA Fall Classic. It was the first time the national team had matched up against another squad since January against Notre Dame, and this time it met the defending NCAA champion Maryland Terrapins. The Terps, fresh off winning their first NCAA title in 40 years, were just weeks into the fall season when they battled Team USA Blue — a split-squad comprised of former Maryland stars like Michael Ehrhardt, Drew Snider, Joe Walters and the Bernhardt brothers. However, coach John Tillman and his team gave Team USA Blue all it could handle on Tierney Field in front of a packed house.

If you missed the Team USA vs. Maryland scrimmage, you can catch the replay here on Youtube.

All I see are two goats.

Is Hopkins to blame for Syracuse’s mumps situation? Some are already pointing fingers at the Jays.

Myself and Adam have no comment.

Onondaga C.C. men's lacrosse got their ice yesterday.

There may not be a better sports story in Central New York than the Onondaga Community College men's lacrosse program. Head coach Chuck Wilbur has created a powerhouse on the Onondaga Hill. In his 17 seasons as head coach of the program, the Lazers have won 10 NJCAA National Championships. That includes last season's riveting 15-14 finish between the Lazers and Howard Community College.
On Saturday, Wilbur and the team held a ring ceremony to celebrate last season's incredible accomplishment. "Besides winning that day, this is the second-best day of the year for us," Wilbur responded. "It's always fun seeing the alumni come back and being a part of it. It's a big family. It's been growing and growing over the years, and it's always good to see everyone. What a good day to have the alumni come back and watch last year's team celebrate their championship."

Here are some highlights of Johns Hopkins vs. Team Israel from last night.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Ohhhhh boy: Former head of Drexel University’s Department of Neurology faces a slew of sexual assault charges.

The former head of Drexel University’s Department of Neurology faces a slew of sex crime charges after several former patients alleged that he had touched them inappropriately and even exposed himself on one occasion. According to court documents, Dr. Ricardo Cruciani was charged with multiple counts of indecent assault and harassment as well as a single count of indecent exposure, among other offenses, on September 25th. A pain specialist who worked in one of Drexel’s clinical practices and also taught at the school, Cruciani was terminated by the university in March 2017 after an internal investigation into complaints lodged by patients.

The 63-year-old is accused of groping at least five female patients at his practice as well as routinely making other unwanted advances and sexually suggestive statements, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed in the case. One victim claims that Cruciani performed a breast examination on her that she did not request. Another states that he forcibly kissed her and tried to pull her towards him.

World/National News.

A week after the horrific attack in Vegas, Jason Aldean performed Tom Petty’s “Won’t Back Down” on SNL last night.

Blade Runner had a meh weekend at the box office.

What a fascinating business. This weekend a $35 million-budgeted horror movie in its fifth frame will gross close to nine times its production cost with a running domestic B.O. total of $304.5M. At the same time, a $155M-plus attempt to reboot a cult sci-fi franchise may not even make it to $100M by the end of its domestic theatrical cycle.

We are, of course, comparing New Line/Warner Bros.’ It and Alcon Entertainment/Sony’s Blade Runner 2049, and the latter is now looking at a three-day weekend of $31.3M as of Saturday night, down from the $32.6M the industry spotted on Saturday morning. That’s an awful start for this brilliantly crafted cinematic opus directed by Denis Villeneuve and executive produced by Ridley Scott. In fact, Blade Runner 2049‘s projected weekend isn’t that far from Scott’s summer misfire, Alien: Covenant ($36.1M). Forecasts for Blade Runner 2049 having been falling since Friday at noon from $45M to $36M late last night to now this.
