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

College Crosse News.

A couple of very interesting Tweets from Teddy Jenner. Looks like we are close to an NLL expansion announcement.

Adam and I taped a great pod on Monday night. Unfortunately something happened and it’s gone now. BUT, you can still have some fun with the post that I wrote up for the pod!

Here’s a nice article by our man Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun on Jesse Bernhardt’s return to College Park.

MMaryland welcomed back a familiar face to its coaching staff. A little bit more than a month after associate head coach/defensive coordinator Kevin Conry left the 2017 NCAA Division I champion to become the head coach at Michigan, the Terps announced on Monday afternoon the hiring of former long-stick midfielder Jesse Bernhardt to fill the vacancy created by Conry’s departure on June 22. Bernhardt, a two-time All American in 2012 and 2013 and the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, was the defensive coordinator at Princeton last spring. Under his guidance, the Tigers ranked seventh in the nation out of 69 teams in saves per game at 13.1, were tied for 10th in man-down defense with a 75.0 percent success rate, and ranked 20th in caused turnovers per game at 7.4.

UNC’s associate athletic director talks about the renovations being done at UNC with a big focus on lacrosse.

Can you go through what renovations are taking place this year and how they're going to impact athletic programs?
Mike Bunting: So in the middle of campus, we're underway on a soccer-lacrosse stadium at Fetzer Field and an indoor practice facility for football and all of our field sports. So the indoor practice facility will include two outdoor practice fields, one synthetic, one natural grass. And at that practice complex, we are underway on a new track complex at Finley Fields, the outdoor track and associated facilities. That will also include two synthetic practice fields for our soccer and lacrosse programs. We will break ground in August, next month, on a new field hockey stadium at Ehringhaus Field. We are just completing a field renovation at Kenan Stadium. While the football practice complex is under construction, the team will have to practice, as well as compete, at Kenan Stadium. And we have just completed two new grass practice fields for our soccer and lacrosse programs at Finley Fields as well.

Manhasset street to be renamed after Duke men’s lacrosse’s Sergeant James John Regan, a Duke lacrosse letterman from 1999-02.

A section of Port Washington Boulevard in Manhasset will be renamed in honor of a U.S. Army Ranger who died in combat in Iraq, state Sen. Elaine Phillips said. Phillips, a Manhasset Republican, said Tuesday that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo had signed legislation renaming the stretch of roadway between Northern Boulevard and Crabapple Road as “Sergeant James. J. Regan Boulevard.”

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Oh boy!: U.S. Rep. Bob Brady’s 2012 primary campaign comes under scrutiny.

Federal prosecutors said Tuesday that U.S. Rep. Bob Brady’s campaign secretly paid a 2012 primary rival $90,000 to abandon his race and that the city’s longtime Democratic power broker later tried to derail an FBI investigation into the payoff by coaching a witness. Those accusations, in court filings made public for the first time, emerged with the disclosure that an aide to Brady’s challenger, senior Municipal Court Judge Jimmie Moore, had admitted her role in the payoff scheme and pleaded guilty to conspiring to conceal it.

Bold move: Justin Bieber may start his own church.

He wrote on Facebook that he was was feeling exhausted after 18 long months on the road. However, sources claim Bieber may now be looking at starting up his own church as part of his plan to get closer to God. “I am led to believe that the real reason he has come off the road is because he wants to reconnect with his faith and he may be even planning to start his own church,” veteran showbiz reporter Richard Wilkins told Today Extra. “We know that he was in the country (Australia) a few weeks ago having meetings and attending the big Hillsong Church convention that they had here,” said Wilkins. “[He’s] very close to a lot of the Hillsong people. Whether he’s looking at teaming up with them in something of a more permanent situation or doing some sort of religious activity on his own – starting his own church – we’re not quite sure, but that’s the word from an inside source.”
