GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for March 10, 2017.

College Crosse News.

Nice post from the Cornell Sun about the UVA & Cornell game out west for the Pacific Coast Shootout.

UVA’s flew out the other day and the Cavs are making the most of their west coast trip.

Our man @OrangeLax makes his picks for week 5.

Go “In The Herd” with Bucknell as they preview the Holy Cross game this weekend.

Maryland will have its hands full against Albany without defender Mac Pons.

Tillman believes it's possible for Pons to come back soon, but he acknowledged the defender hasn't visited the doctor for a check-in. That appointment, which should clarify his status, might not occur until next week.

If the Bel Air native's health doesn't improve soon, Maryland can choose to redshirt him. However, Tillman will leave the choice to the Pons family because he doesn't want to "force a decision like that on anybody."

A couple great posts by our man Edward Lee from the Baltimore Sun. Here’s one about Hop’s lack of success at the faceoff and here’s one about Navy and their problem with turnovers this year.

Shout out to the good people at Good Sports.

Friends and family mourn the loss of former University of Lindenwood lacrosse player Isaiah Kozak.

Family, friends and teammates are in mourning for former South Okanagan Flames lacrosse player Isaiah Kozak who died suddenly on Tuesday.

“I just lost my best friend. I just lost a family member, a brother,” said Brenden Deverill. “Someone that I have known for my whole entire life. I’m very heart broken.”

Kozak’s No. 11 sweater with Penticton Minor Lacrosse and the Flames team hung on a fence at the courts at McLaren Arena on Wednesday as his former teammates and friends gathered to comfort one another. Kozak, 20, was in St. Charles, Mo., playing for the University of Lindenwood Lions men’s field lacrosse team at the time of his death.

Rutgers vs. Stony Brook is going to be pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty good.

For the second consecutive game, the nationally ranked team will step into High Point Solutions Stadium and for the second consecutive game, the Rutgers men’s lacrosse team will look to send the visitors home with a loss.

The No. 8 Scarlet Knights (5-0) welcome No. 14 Stony Brook (5-0) to Piscataway on Friday night in what was once supposed to be a rivalry game turned into a Seawolf-dominated series, with Stony Brook having beaten Rutgers every year since the 2013 season, the year the two teams began scheduling each other for annual contests.

This year is different, though, as the Knights are at their highest ranking since 2004 and are playing at home, a place they haven’t lost since 2015, winning 11 straight.

“I don’t know if it’s so much this place as it is how much pride they have in putting on these white jerseys,” said head coach Brian Brecht. “They prepare well, they execute on game days and they love putting on those white jerseys.

Our man Quint Kessenich listed his top 31 players of 2017.

“Just one month into the season, you can see a clear divide between the best players and those trying to reach that status. I have 31 players who have made their mark in 2017. My editor probably wanted 25 or 30 players, a nice round number, but I came up with 31 who have impressed me. ...” (Ed. Note: #ThugLife.)

What’s Up, Philly?

The Eagles signed Alshon Jeffery and I’m pretty sure we’re going to win the Super Bowl next year.

Sixers owner Josh Harris met with President Trump. #TrustTheProcess

Reuters reports that Harris, who co-founded private equity firm Apollo Global Management, was invited to discuss potential public-private partnerships for Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure project. Harris was reportedly joined by Tesla Inc. CEO Elon Musk, Vornado Realty Trust CEO Steve Roth, real estate developer Richard LeFrak, McKinsey & Company partner Tyler Duvall and General Atlantic CEO Bill Ford. The massive infrastructure project includes plans to rebuild roads, bridges, highways, schools, hospitals and other public works projects. (It even reportedly includes I-95 in Philadelphia on its “priority list.”)
