GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for October 15, 2019.

College Crosse News

High Point released its 2020 schedule yesterday.

High Point University men’s lacrosse head coach Jon Torpey has announced the 2020 schedule, which features contests against four teams that were ranked in the top five throughout last season. The 2020 slate features rematches of HPU’s ACC wins against Duke and 2019 defending national champion Virginia.

”We are looking forward to a great 2020 season. Since the inception of our program we have been blessed to compete against some fantastic programs and this year is no exception,” said Coach Torpey. “One of the greatest gifts you can give your team is the opportunity to prove themselves against the very best and we will have the fortune of doing this with every team we face in 2020.”

There was lots of fall ball action this past weekend.

US Lacrosse Magazine with a great article on Chris Gray & his transition to the Tar Heels.

Chris Gray’s first few months in Chapel Hill have gone so well that he struggles to name one difficult part of the transition. His new North Carolina teammates and coaches have welcomed the heralded Boston University transfer and All American with open arms. The facilities are top-notch. He’s excited about his recently declared major in management and society. Plus, the South offers warmer weather, a multitude of biscuit restaurants and, if he’s ever feeling homesick, a Dunkin’ Donuts right down nearby Franklin Street. Has anything been an adjustment?

Happy Thanksgiving to our friends up north!

Someone call Lord Bellichick: Lions release WR Tom Kennedy.

The Detroit Lions have fortified their depth on the defensive line by promoting John Atkins from the practice squad before Monday’s showdown with the Packers. Receiver Tom Kennedy was released in the corresponding move.

On Sunday over a 100 volunteers searched for missing University of Portland lacrosse player Owen Klinger.

More than a hundred volunteers met in Peninsula Park on Sunday to search for missing University of Portland student Owen Klinger. “We are all here to find anything about Owen,” said Guillaume Debergh as he addressed the group of volunteers. “We want him home. We want him safe and we want him with his family.”


Renovations to the Carrier Dome are right on schedule.

Syracuse University’s renovation of the Carrier Dome remains on schedule and, over the course of the next two months, should provide city residents a good idea of what the city skyline will look like for years to come. Syracuse University vice president and chief facilities officer Pete Sala met with reporters on Monday to provide an update on the project. Sala said that enough of the roof will be in place that its appearance will start to become clear in November.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Vanity Fair did a big piece on It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

In 2005, the world was a different place. George W. Bush occupied the White House, YouTube was a brand-new novelty, and Donald Trump was content to yell “you’re fired” at reality-show contestants. At the same time, and with little fanfare, FX was prepping its newest series: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, a jet black comedy about a group of largely despicable people—Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Charlie (Charlie Day), and Dee (Kaitlin Olson), with Frank (Danny DeVito) joining “the Gang” in season two—who run (aka spend most of the day drinking at) Paddy’s Pub, a derelict bar in South Philly.
