GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for March 6, 2017.

College Crosse News.

Sunday was definitely a funday as Syracuse won another thriller in the dome and Bryant stunned Yale. Our Boy Chris has all the scores, recaps, and highlights of yesterday’s games here.

BOSS Desko and his boys.

Doc dropped a hot Media Poll post this morning. You’ll definitely want to read it.

Sitting in the post-game presser following the UNC/Denver game this weekend someone asked Denver head coach Bill Tierney if dropping a game to UNC was a setback. Tierney responded, “It’s a setback, and I’ll tell you why it is. It’s because this year is going to be crazy… I’m not a big ‘compare score’ guy but you can’t help but look at what’s happened just in two weeks. These guys get beat up by Hopkins, Hopkins gets beat up by Princeton, we get beat up by these guys. Where does that put us?”

Syracuse.com recaps yesterday’s Cuse vs. Virginia game. Sergio Salcido is pretty good.

Lacrosse + Taylor Swift? Yes, please!!!

The Blue Devils beat Richmond yesterday.

Another comeback by Syracuse against Virginia: “Syracuse women's lacrosse completes 9-goal comeback to avoid upset by Virginia.”

Despite the loss to Syracuse BOSS Tiffany was happy to return to his “lacrosse roots.”

Before taking questions in a postgame media session, Tiffany, a native of Lafayette, made an opening statement of appreciation and excitement for a great back-and-forth game played in front of a crowd of 4,783.

"That's the way the game's meant to be played, right? Boy, what an exciting atmosphere,'' he said. "Having grown up in Syracuse, New York, myself, in Lafayette, I know how important the game of lacrosse is to this community. It's really special to be able to play in front of so many rabid lacrosse fans, who obviously are rooting against us, or most of them are rooting against us. But what an atmosphere.

Quick-acting athletic trainer saves high school BALLER'S life.

Instantly, John Capozzolo knew something was wrong. As several high school-aged boys were working out at a DeSales University lacrosse camp Feb. 19, one of the athletes suddenly crouched down and fell face-first into the turf. Capozzolo, who is Catasauqua High School's athletic trainer, and other staff at the camp rushed to help the 17-year-old player from Montvale, N.J., who lay motionless on the field.

I’m not saying it’s time to panic in Cornell ... but we’re getting close: “Crushing Home-Opener Loss to Albany Sends Men’s Lacrosse to First 0-3 Start Since 1997.”

With the chance to come home and show its fans that its first two losses were flukes and not indicative how the season may unfold, the Cornell men’s lacrosse team failed to quell any doubts surrounding the storied program, dropping a tough 17-6 loss to Albany for the first 0-3 start in 20 years.

“We have some good pieces but we are not even close right now,” said head coach Matt Kerwick, who watched his team get outscored 9-1 by halftime. “Now we are three games into this thing and it’s the same song, and we have to figure this thing out. We need some guys to step up.”

Lacrosse makes Guam debut with the Black Tips lacrosse team.

The fastest growing U.S. sport, according to the Boston Globe, has finally made its debut in Guam with the Black Tips lacrosse team.

Players from different military branches have come together to train and represent Guam lacrosse in tournaments across the globe and the Indo-Asian-Pacific region.

Lacrosse has a historic background in the America’s, originating in Eastern North America by the Native American Algonquian tribe and later adapted into the fast paced game that is played today. Lacrosse is a team sport that can be played by anyone regardless of size or gender and rewards agility as well as brawn.

“I have been playing lacrosse since I was 7-years-old,” said Daniel Scarola, a criminal investigator with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations Detachment 602. “When I got to Andersen and there was no team I knew it was my job to find other players who are passionate about the game. I have played lacrosse throughout my military career in Iraq, Arkansas and Germany and wanted to bring the game to Guam.”

What’s Up, Philly?

Some guy is trying to get 10,000 friends for some reason.

When I walk into Shot Tower Coffee just after 9 a.m. on a recent Friday, it doesn’t take me long to spot Rob. His hair is slicked to the right, just like in his photos. As I near the table where he’s sitting, he greets me with the ear-to-ear smile I’ve seen on Instagram so many times. No, this isn’t an early weekend Tinder date, and Rob Lawless isn’t quite famous. A few nights back, we arranged this sit-down via email. When I reached out to ask if he’d be the subject of this story, he asked if I’d be the subject of a story, too. Lawless, 26, wanted me to take part in the very project I want to document: He was 14 months into a 10-year quest to make 10,000 new friends in a very 21st-century way. On this unseasonably warm January morning, I’m the 644th stranger to meet him.

BANG!: “Woman throws stones before using a GUN to get rid of nosy neighbour's drone.”

A woman lost her temper at a nosy neighbour's drone and aimed a gun at it to make it buzz off. The woman, from Bellevue, Washington, looked worried by the aircraft that was flying over her garden and balcony. After throwing what appeared to be stones at the device she then grabbed a gun and appeared to try to fire the aerial spy out of the sky.
