GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for November 13, 2017.

College Crosse AMA Podcast.

We’re going to have our Ask Us Anything Podcast the week of Thanksgiving. We greatly appreciate everyone who’s sent in questions already, as they have been fantastic. Make sure to check out Ryan’s post for details about the podcast if you’d like to send in a question.

We’re also doing Thanksgiving related polls in the run-up to our podcast. This one from yesterday was fun, even though I am a bit shocked that mashed potatoes didn’t win it in a romp. The poll closes around 8:00 a.m. so there’s still a little time to vote.

Shout out to my man here, doing his part for the culture and teaching everyone how to make a lacrosse goal.

These “get to know player X” videos by Penn State on their class of 2022 signees have been fantastic. Here’s one on Brett Hobbs.

Nice post here by friend of the blog Jack Goods on what Buffalo Bandits fans should watch for as the team opens up training camp.

After an off-season of revamping, the Buffalo Bandits opened their training camp this weekend looking to move past a last place finish in the National Lacrosse League last season. The regular season is less than a month away, but there are decisions to be made before the Bandits start their 27th season of play.

Here are five things you need to know as the Bandits kick off the 2017-18 campaign:

1. When can I watch? The Bandits' annual open practice is scheduled for Nov. 25 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The event is open to the public and no ticket is necessary. After the practice, players will sign autographs around the concourse starting at noon, while general manager Steve Dietrich, head coach Troy Cordingley, assistant coaches John Tavares and Rich Kilgour, and director of lacrosse operations Scott Loffler will host a Q&A in the Lexus Club starting at 11:30 a.m.

Here’s a great post on former Syracuse standout Cody Jamieson.

At least in lacrosse circles the number 88 points directly towards Six Nations and Cody Jamieson. In his sixth season as a pro, all of them with the Rochester Knighthawks, Jamieson was a big part of the 2012 to 2014 three year run as NLL’s Championship Cup winning teams and innumerable hi-light real goals. This past summer, Jamieson served as ambassador for the North American Indigenous Games.

Jamieson has been plagued with injuries the past two seasons missing last year’s NLL season entirely, he is confident he will be ready when the Knighthawk’s season begins. How many more training camps are left for Jamieson is anybody’s guess but one thing is for sure. His heart will always be ready.

Jamieson’s familiar No. 88 has been taking on another meaning as well. He started the Teameights Foundation, and when he is not on the field or in the gym, Jamieson is speaking at schools and events with a strong message he believes that needs to be said.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Reason #4,174 that Roger Goodell should be fired: NFL says if Eagles go to the Super Bowl, fans can't watch the game at the Linc.

Vegas odds-makers are giving the Eagles a better-and-better shot of going to the Super Bowl this season. I’m already making party plans in case that happens. And I already know where I want to celebrate. At the Linc, with 69,175 other fans. How much crazy fun would it be to watch the Super Bowl on the Linc’s fantastic 27-by-96-foot, Panasonic LED video screens with fans – jacked on hope and Schmitters – roaring loud enough to rattle molars in Delco? But we’re gonna have to persuade the National Football League to let us host a Super Bowl Watch Party at the Linc if the Birds get to the big game. Here’s why: The league owns the broadcast rights to all NFL games and has a long-standing policy of forbidding “the mass, out-of-home viewing of preseason, regular-season, and postseason games,” explained NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy.

So Bill Gates bought up a ton of land in Arizona to build a “smart city.”

One of Bill Gates' investment firms has spent $80 million to kickstart the development of a brand-new community in the far West Valley. The large plot of land is about 45 minutes west of downtown Phoenix off I-10 near Tonopah. The proposed community, made up of close to 25,000 acres of land, is called Belmont. According to Belmont Partners, a real estate investment group based in Arizona, the goal is to turn the land into its own "smart city." "Belmont will create a forward-thinking community with a communication and infrastructure spine that embraces cutting-edge technology, designed around high-speed digital networks, data centers, new manufacturing technologies and distribution models, autonomous vehicles and autonomous logistics hubs," Belmont Partners said in a news release.
