GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for June 29, 2017.

College Crosse News.

The lads at Harlem Lacrosse are grinding hard.

Our newest Crossecast is up! Ryan, Adam, Jake, & myself talked about all the news from the offseason, some 2018 banter, and then some pop culture stuff. It’s worth a listen!

Chris did a marvelous job summarizing all the recent assistant coach moves and possible player transfers in this post from yesterday.

With the coaching carousel stopped for the moment, the smaller assistant coaching carousel has begun spinning.
Terry Foy of Inside Lacrosse has learned of multiple spots being filled across the Division I landscape. We’ll start with the Delaware Blue Hens and new head coach Ben DeLuca. He’s brought on two faces that are familiar to him in former Georgetown Hoyas assistant Matt Rewkowski and former Harvard Crimson Lacrosse Operations Coordinator Noah Fossner. We heard a few rumblings about Rewkowski reuniting with DeLuca a few weeks ago, and those two go back to their days with the Cornell Big Red. Fossner is a newer face for DeLuca, as he was at Harvard last year. He’s bounced around recently, including stops with the Boston University Terriers and a stint back with the Blue Hens under Bob Shillinglaw, along with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Fossner was a stud goalie with the Blue Hens when he played from 2008-2011. He should be a great mentor for rising sophomore Matt DeLuca, as he coached Conor Peaks and Christian Carson-Banister, and they both turned out to be pretty good.

Quinnipiac unveils their brand new lacrosse field.

Life is good over in the athletic department at Quinnipiac University. They’ve got great facilities for the basketball and hockey programs and now they’re getting ready to unveil a new outdoor turf complex. The future home of the field hockey, lacrosse and soccer teams is coming together quickly. The turf is down on the soccer and lacrosse field, and the new field hockey field will be getting turf next.

STAND UP ARGENTINA!!!: FIL approves Argentina as a full member.

The Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) has granted full membership status to Argentina. Argentina, along with Belgium (also approved for full membership status), expands FIL’s full member roster to 34 out 58 member nations. FIL Director of Development Bob DeMarco said that both organizations were approved unanimously by the board. Argentina joins Bermuda, Canada, the Iroquois and the United States as full members from the Americas. Full membership provides nations with voting privileges, committee membership opportunities and championship bracket eligibility.

Nice Q&A with Maryland’s Wesley Janeck in the Chicago Tribune!!

Q: The feeling of winning the national title ... I assume that potential was one of the main reasons you went to Maryland. But what was the feeling reaching that level, reaching the apex, as a sophomore?
A: When I committed as a sophomore, I knew how good of a lacrosse program Maryland had and I was blessed to have the opportunity to go there. I didn't expect it, you know? I'm from Chicago, lacrosse isn't that big here, so it was really exciting to hear from Coach (John) Tillman. It was a great fit for me in so many ways, especially because I wanted to be in the business school. Winning the national title already was always possible, and it's an amazing feeling.

New Michigan head coach Kevin Conry sat down for a Q&A with MGoBlue about how he is settling in and his vision for the Wolverines.

Q: You've got a pretty diverse background in the Big Ten. How do you foresee that experience helping at Michigan?

A: Well, the Big Ten has some of the best lacrosse coaches in the country. If you can pick up different aspects from what make others successful and incorporate them into your own philosophy, that's a tremendous asset. As a head coach, you have to pick and piece what works and what doesn't so that at the end of the day you have a successful program. I think that's the most appealing attribute to working with all those great coaches.

What’s Up, Philly?

Philly District Attorney Seth Williams’ trial is going well. No sorry, I meant it’s going horribly.

Seth Williams’ lawyer sought Wednesday to justify the thousands of dollars of campaign cash the Philadelphia district attorney paid for membership dues and spa services at a pricey Center City gym by suggesting that “trimming down” and “getting in shape” made him more electable.

But as defense lawyer Thomas F. Burke offered that explanation to Lisette Gonzalez, the former director of Williams’ political action committee, all she could do was cringe. “There are a lot of bigger candidates who run and win,” she said. “I can’t agree with that at all.”

World/National News.

We’re all pretty much #NoLimitSoldiers: Group of Canadian researchers say that it’s possible human existence may be boundless.

Last year, a trio of New York researchers claimed humans had already lived as long as they possibly could. About 115 years, said Albert Einstein College of Medicine researchers, that's the maximum human lifespan. Now a group of Canadian researchers challenges that assertion, saying its possible human existence may be boundless. "It does not mean that we know there is no limit. But because we can detect no limit it is possible that indeed there is no limit," said McGill University biologist Siegfried Hekimi. "Average human life span keeps increasing dramatically and maximum human lifespan seems to follow. I see no statistical or demonstrated biological reason how we would know that this must stop."
