GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Let’s get to those hot and piping links!
What You Missed
New polls came out yesterday, and I don’t get some of the choices.
One big favorite was kicked off the Reverse Survivor island with a win last week.
This week’s 10-man ride takes a look at Rutgers’ win over Brown and how they stymied Dylan Molloy.
Our top 20s are much better than most top 20s.
How can you not love Lars Tiffany?
The season is already weird. It’s going to get weirder.
Lacrosse The Nation
Whistle Sports went with former Maryland star Joe Walters to his hometown of Rochester and even called him the Kevin Durant of lacrosse.
One high school lacrosse goalie is fighting a rare form of cancer, from Rachel Brown of WCNC in Charlotte.
Two year's ago Noah Hays was diagnosed with stage four Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare aggressive cancer that is only diagnosed about 350 times a year in the United States.
After more than a year of treatment, there were no more signs of the disease.
Sadly on Friday, Noah tweeted out that his cancer has returned.
Unsure how long he will be able to play before treatment the Providence High School community once again rallied around him as the team took on Weddington High School.
You can support him by using the #NoahStrong hashtag on social media.

Check out this week’s Hofstra Coaches Report with Seth Tierney.
Speaking of the Pride, their first midfield unit, along with their goaltender, have been keys to the team’s recent success, writes Christian Swezey for Inside Lacrosse.
“Those guys [the starting midfield] are in pretty good shape,” Tierney says. “And we have to ride them right now.”
The other component to Hofstra’s win was junior goalie Jack Concannon; he made 17 saves, including 14 in the first half.
“We got a lot of shots,” Georgetown coach Kevin Warne says. “But their goalie made 17 saves and when that happens that’s going to keep you in a lot of games.”
The Pride is off to its best start since it won its first five games in 2011; that also was the last time Hofstra made the NCAA Tournament.
Our homie Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun had a Q&A session with Quint Kessenich.
I think Furman’s gonna sell out their SoCon opener.
