#JazBomb: As reported by our very own Chris Jastremzbski, Matt Poskay resigned as the head coach of Wagner to take the same position at Division III Montclair State.
Matt Poskay has resigned from his position as head coach of the Wagner Seahawks and will take over as head coach of Division III Montclair State, a source tells College Crosse. A Wagner spokesperson has also confirmed Poskay is leaving the school. In seven seasons at Wagner, Poskay went 20-75 as head coach. From 2010 until 2013, the Seahawks won a total of three games, which included a winless season in 2011. But things improved beginning with a two-win campaign in 2014. After going 4-9 in 2015,
Wagner had back-to-back 6-9 seasons before finishing 4-10 this past year. Prior to taking over as the program’s head coach, Poskay spent time as an assistant coach at Division III Drew University and A.L. Johnson Regional High School, his alma mater.
Cleveland St. released their schedule yesterday, The Kid Chris did a breakdown of their 2019 slate.
Circle These Dates
2/9 (vs. Michigan): The Vikings have started out strong in both of their home openers against Michigan and Ohio State. The Wolverines are a rising program, as many saw in their upset win over Notre Dame last year.
2/23 (vs. Air Force @ University of Denver): Cleveland State was able to take advantage of an Air Force team that went through a lot in the fall. After beating Detroit Mercy to end 2017, the Vikings upset the Falcons in Colorado for their best win yet. They hope to do that once again.
3/2 (@ Mercer): Last year’s meeting was at Cleveland State, with the Vikings scoring five of the six second half goals to tie things up at nine. But the Bears came out of Cleveland victors thanks to a Michael Quinn overtime goal. This should be a tight game once again in Georgia

Bonnies lacrosse gets first taste of game action in Ellicottville.
If the first half showed the potential for the brand-new St. Bonaventure men’s lacrosse team, the second half reminded Randy Mearns his Bonnies still have a long way to go. The university’s newest Division I sport made its debut Saturday during the Ellicottville Lacrosse Festival, playing John Carroll in a fall season-opening scrimmage at Ellicottville High School, Bona’s first official competition in the sport in 25 years. The Division III Blue Streaks came back from a 5-2 deficit at halftime to win 13-8. For a coach with high hopes long-term as Bonaventure plans to fully fund the program, Mearns admitted some disappointment, but also saw a lot to like in the first half.

Wooden Stick Festival Celebrates Lacrosse and Haudenosaunee Culture.
The Haudenosaunee Wooden Stick Festival, Saturday, Sept. 29, and Sunday, Sept. 30, celebrates the late Randy Hall, a member of the Akwesasne Mohawk Wolf Clan, with a box lacrosse tournament in his memory. Hall, a lifelong fan of lacrosse, died in January at age 72. “He loved sports and was deeply involved with the Creator’s Game, what we call lacrosse, among different Haudenosaunee nations,” says Philip Arnold, associate professor and chair of the religion department in the College of Arts and Sciences and president of the Indigenous Values Initiative, the event’s sponsor. Arnold is founding director of the Skä·noñh—Great Law of Peace Center. The Indigenous Values Initiative is a nonprofit organization that supports the work of Skä·noñh and other initiatives to educate the general public about the indigenous values of the Haudenosaunee.

Adam Jones may be putting on an Orioles uniform for the last time this weekend. But if this is it, he’s leaving Baltimore charities something to remember him by.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Razza Pizza Artigianale in Jersey City serves the nation’s second best pizza, according to The Daily Meal.
The food/drink website, in its annual list of the nation’s 101 best pizzas, singled out Razza’s Bufala pizza, with crushed N.J. heirloom tomato sauce, N.J. water buffalo milk mozzarella, garlic and basil, bested only by the white clam pizza with grated Parmesan, olive oil, garlic and oregano at Frank Pepe’s in New Haven, Connecticut. “Not only has (Razza owner Dan) Richer perfected his crust -- it’s crisp from end to end and its inside is soft with a complex flavor -- he’s also meticulous about his toppings, which he sources locally,” according to The Daily Meal. The website makes note of New York Times reviewer Pete Wells’ glowing review of Razza last year; he named it “the best pizza in New York.”
Oh boy: SEC sues Elon Musk for alleged fraud.
U.S. securities regulators on Thursday sought to force Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Elon Musk out of the company he helped get off the ground about 15 years ago, alleging he misled shareholders when he tweeted he had funding for what would have been the largest-ever corporate buyout.
The complaint filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission came after a last-minute decision by Mr. Musk and his lawyers to fight the case rather than settle the charges.
The filing by the SEC in federal court in Manhattan threatens to deal a severe blow to the Palo Alto, Calif., electric car maker. Its brand and Mr. Musk are closely intertwined, and analysts have said the company’s roughly $50 billion market value is driven by Wall Street’s appreciation for Mr. Musk’s vision and skill as an innovator.
