GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for April 26, 2017.

College Crosse News.

The Boy Chris with a great breakdown of all the games from last night, including BU & Holy Cross’ big wins in the PL Tournament.

Travel down the 10 Circles of Lacrosse with Chris.

The conference tournaments are coming! Two of them happen this week, and the Patriot League gets things started tomorrow evening with Holy Cross-Navy and Lehigh-Boston University. The ACC Tournament begins Friday with North Carolina-Syracuse and Notre Dame-Duke. For the other nine conferences, they have one week left in conference play before their conference tournaments begin. Like last week, we’ll travel down each circle (conference) of lacrosse, just like Dante did with his circles of hell in his epic poem Dante’s Inferno, which was written in the 1400s. For a short summary, the author, Dante Alighieri, is also the main character and travels through the nine circles of hell with the ancient Roman poet Virgil. You can read the epic poem, but here’s a graphic for you as well.

Hoya with a great post about the ACC Tournament.

But according to coach John Tillman, the seeding is the least of his worries. “Honestly, that’s the first time I’ve thought of it,” he said Tuesday morning when asked about the potential scenario. “The way we look at it is, we just know there are three other good teams in that tournament. We’ve played all three in the last month, and whatever happens, happens. I’m not really that concerned about seeding. The other three teams are all really good. I guess the seeding will take care of itself. I’m just concerned about trying to play well against Johns Hopkins on Saturday and trying to get better at some things and continuing to improve, and then we’ll find out who we play.”

Pretty cool story out of Syracuse.

Helmet design and sticker embellishments push and enhance the cool vibe of lacrosse. The high school boys representing the Syracuse City School District's combined team this season are wearing their own twist.

There are parallel stickers on top of their black helmets. One represents the red, white and blue flag of the United States. The other represents the purple and white of the Onondagas and Haudenosaunee.

Long-time Corcoran head coach Shaun Smith leads the combined Syracuse team, which includes players from Corcoran, Nottingham, Henninger and the Institute of Technology at Syracuse Central. He said his teams have worn stickers representing the U.S. and Haudensaunee for several years, not only because his teams have always had Native American players, but because he wants to honor the history of the game.

Smith said this year's design was a collaboration with former LaFayette High School and Johns Hopkins lacrosse star John Greeley, who represents a Las Vegas company called HeadWrapz that specializes in helmet stickers and design. Greeley, a two-time high school All-American and former All-CNY Player of the Year at LaFayette, played for Smith on an Empire State Games team several years ago. The two ran into one another this past summer and the discussion shifted to helmet design.

Good post by friend of the blog @OrangeLax: Syracuse Lacrosse: Orange keep a grip on the first position while the polls find some stability.

What’s Up, Philly?

Nice article about how the Rocky Steps at the Art Museum will be prominently featured during the NFL Draft.

The group was near the Benjamin Franklin Parkway when one of the men stopped me and asked with a heavy accent -- Eastern European, it seemed -- how to find “the Rocky Center.” I knew exactly what they were looking for. I pointed toward the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

For all of Philly’s history, neighborhood soul, and cultural energy, few things define the city to the world quite like the museum steps made famous 41 years ago by a fictional boxer. They’ll be in the national spotlight again Thursday for the NFL draft, when real-life athletic phenoms walk down the stairs when their names are called. The football stars will follow in the footsteps of countless ordinary Philadelphians and tourists who have made the steps an integral part of the city’s everyday energy and international charm.

World/National News.
