College Crosse News.

Our man Jake Nazar with a great post out this morning that scientifically breaks down who is going to win the Final Four this year in Foxborough.

Hello friends. It’s your good buddy Jake Nazar here again. While I’ve blessed you with my wonderful voice on the podcast in recent weeks, I thought I’d take a dive back into sharing my remarkably insightful words in writing with you. And what a time to do so, as we’re not long away now from the start of the NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Championship. The question obviously on everyone’s minds though, is: Who’s going to win it all? If you’re wondering that, you’re in luck! Because I’m here to tell you.

The Kid Chris made a Big BBQ Bingo! card for everyone to enjoy!! #Blessed

We already know that this weekend will be awesome with the start of the NCAA Men’s Division I Tournament, but you know what we can do to make it more enjoyable? Bingo. That’s right, everyone’s favorite game that’s played in nursing homes and other functions has a lacrosse twist to it, because why not! You’ve seen them during the Super Bowl or other big sporting events, so why not do it for eight lacrosse games! As you watch all eight games on Saturday and Sunday, be sure to fill out your cards whenever you see or hear something that’s on this card!

While the teams are playing, play at home with our Bingo card!

A post shared by College Crosse (@college_crosse) on

The New York Lizards and the Atlanta Blaze went at it a little bit on Twitter yesterday

Great story about Air Force’s BOSS Seremet: In memory of coach’s wife, Air Force lacrosse climbs to unprecedented heights.

Memo to University of Denver lacrosse fans: Don’t beat yourselves up if you’ve realized you subconsciously rooted for Air Force on Saturday.

It will be hard not to.

Regardless of the outcome, the Air Force lacrosse team will walk out of Barton Lacrosse Stadium knowing it had played in the NCAA Tournament three times in a four-year stretch — highly impressive for far-flung program that hadn’t previously played in the national tournament since 1988. And ninth-year coach Eric Seremet deserves much of the praise, but in a cruel way; his personal grief has seemingly led to the program’s rapid ascent.

That cruelty is why the DU faithful might pull for the Falcons in Saturday’s 3 p.m. first-ever, all-Colorado NCAA Tournament game. Well, at least for Serement.

Seremet’s success curve at Air Force skyrocketed following the death of his wife, Sonia. During a family day-trip to the mountains Oct. 5, 2013, Sonia Seremet was killed in a single-car accident on Colorado Highway 9 near Hartsel. She was 37. Eric Seremet was the driver. He lost control of the car, survived along with the couple’s two daughters, Anabel and Emelia, who were 2 and 4 at the time.

Why are the Great Danes so good? Well you got to go back to a practice in February for that answer.

University at Albany men's lacrosse coach Scott Marr can only recall his team having one bad practice all season.

That's very unusual, according to Marr, who said the average year contains six to 10 disappointing practices, depending on how much the team is winning.

"Very early in February, we came out very lackadaisical, not a lot of energy," Marr said. "I got the captains after practice and said, 'This is unacceptable,' and they had a team meeting, and we haven't had a bad day since."

Senior midfielder John Glancy, one of the four captains, pointed to that day as a turning point. The eighth-seeded Great Danes (14-2) are rolling heading into their NCAA Tournament first-round match against defending national champion North Carolina (8-7) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Casey Stadium.

WSBT 22 caught up with the Irish before their game versus Marquette on Sunday.

There is no doubt about it. This is the time that Notre Dame lacrosse has been looking forward to. The Irish are gearing up for the first round of the NCAA lacrosse national tournament. "This is what you play for. This is why you come to Notre Dame." said junior forward Mikey Wynne, "Its time to put it together."

UNC’s ready to rock!!

Bon voyage, Marquette!!!

The 2017 MCLA National Championship is all set!!

Captain Nadelen previews Penn State on the Tiger Lacrosse Report.

Scott Firman of Syracuse previews Yale.

Jordan Evans gives some thoughts on his last Big BBQ and Syracuse’s game versus Yale on Sunday.

Nice pasta dinner at the Goldstocks!!

What’s Up, Philly?

Metallica stopped by Philly and smashed it at Lincoln Financial Field, the future site of the 2019 & 2020 Men’s Final Four.

What's black and white and red all over, and almost tall enough to reach the upper decks at Lincoln Financial Field? The enormous video screens that towered above the four members of Metallica in South Philadelphia on Friday night that made James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo Jr. and Lars Ulrich seem both much larger than life and really teeny in comparison to their oversized LED images, that's what. Thanks to a classified ad that Ulrich placed in 1981 — "drummer looking for other metal musicians to jam with" — Metallica have been bringing the noise for over 35 years now, and Friday's show by the California band was the second date on their WorldWired American tour, and first in Philadelphia since 2009. (They also brought their short lived Orion music festival to Atlantic City's Bader Field in 2012.)

What is that?!?!: Massive creature washes up on Indonesian island - but what is it?

A giant carcass found washed up on a beach in Indonesia’s central Maluku province puzzled locals and authorities trying to identify the massive creature. The massive carcass was found on Hulung Beach on Serum Island on Tuesday night by a local man, the Jakarta Globe reported. Asrul Tuanakota, 37, said that he initially mistook the huge fleshy blob for a stranded boat, the newspaper reported.

Cyber-extortionists hack computers all over the world.

Dozens of countries were hit with a huge cyberextortion attack Friday that locked up computers and held users’ files for ransom at a multitude of hospitals, companies and government agencies. It was believed to the biggest attack of its kind ever recorded. The malicious software behind the onslaught appeared to exploit a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows that was supposedly identified by the National Security Agency for its own intelligence-gathering purposes and was later leaked to the internet.
