GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for September 2, 2017.

What You Missed

Yesterday was the official start for college coaches to call players graduating in 2019.

Lacrosse The Nation

Plenty of college news to go around. We’ll start with coaching changes or promotions for multiple teams:

More teams announced their incoming freshmen class and transfers:

Others are still introducing their young studs:

We do have one correction to make regarding Drew Supinski.

Earlier last month, I reported that Supinski, a former Johns Hopkins midfielder, would be going to Notre Dame. We’re finding out he’s not with the Fighting Irish.

The people that gave me this info when I was at Lake Placid were very close to Supinski, so I’m not 100% sure if it was bad info in the first place or if it was true at first and something changed between then and now. I tried to find out from those same people where he’s at now and they didn’t know. He could still be at Hopkins for all we know and pulled a Ryder Garnsey.

We’ll let you know when we find out more about Supinski and others potential transfers. But for now, here’s an updated Player Movement Tracker is below:

LaxWeekly profiles Cleveland State Vikings freshman Jason Sullivan.

Lafayette and Michigan are excited to start their seasons:

Our Joe Keegan has a great MLL stats story on USLaxMagazine.com!

1. THE BEST PLAYERS DON’T NEED PICKS TO GET THEIR HANDS FREE.

Paul Rabil (New York Lizards) shoots 23.9 percent unassisted in one-on-one dodging situations. With a pick, 31 percent of the shots Rabil creates for himself find the back of the cage. Jeremy Sieverts (Denver Outlaws) jumps from 24.6 percent to 34.4 percent. Connor Buczek (Florida Launch) goes from 21.3 to 34.6.

2. STOPPING SHOTS IS A GOALIE’S ONLY JOB.

Save percentage and goals against average don’t paint the full picture of a goalie’s impact on a game. There’s so much more to the position: communicating slide packages, preventing rebound opportunities and throwing outlet passes.

Ohio Machine goalie Kyle Bernlohr made clean saves at a higher rate than anyone in MLL. Of his saves, 41.7 percent were clean, well above the league average of 31.1 percent. Clean saves lead to quicker outlets. The Machine scored on 39.3 percent of possessions following Bernlohr’s saves.

Peep Penn State’s new S helmets. Not a big fan of small decals, but the helmet still looks nice:
