GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for October 25, 2019.

College Crosse News

Michigan released their 2020 schedule yesterday.

Check out Chris’ breakdown of Michigan’s 2020 schedule.

The Michigan Wolverines are the 16th team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the second team from the Big Ten. Michigan finished 4-9 overall in 2019 and 1-4 in Big Ten play. The Wolverines failed to qualify for the Big Ten Tournament for another season, but recorded their first ever win over archrival Ohio State in their regular season finale.

Circle These Dates

2/8 vs. Cleveland State: Michigan began their season-opener strong with a 7-0 run. The game looked to be over midway through the second quarter, but the Vikings pulled off a 6-0 run of their on to keep it close. The Wolverines won by two that day, but Cleveland State provides a tough early season task, even if they have a new head coach.

Marist also released their schedule yesterday.

The Marist men’s lacrosse program announced its 2020 schedule on Thursday morning. Coming off the third Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship in program history, the Red Foxes will have seven home games and seven on the road standing between them and another MAAC Championship. Marist will be playing a tough non-conference schedule in order to help them prepare for MAAC play and gear up for a run at a repeat.

Family of Justin Corpolongo are thankful that he survived the attack.

The St. John’s University alum allegedly nearly gutted by his lacrosse captain roommate is “lucky to be alive,” his sister told The Post on Thursday, adding that their entire family is “traumatized.” Justin Corpolongo, 23 — a 2018 university alumnus who used to play on the lacrosse team — is recovering from surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Queens after getting stabbed early Tuesday.

Haters gonna hate.

US Lacrosse Magazine with a great article on Marquette head coach Andrew Stimmel.

Andrew Stimmel played for Joe Breschi and Nick Myers at Ohio State, is Myers’ defensive coordinator on the United States under-19 national team and coached under Andy Shay at Yale for five of the last six years. It should come as no surprise that Stimmel can’t help but channel some of his bosses on the field now that he has a Division I program of his own.

Rutgers’ new lacrosse (and soccer) facility is coming along nicely.

Shooters shoot.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

World Series here we come: Phillies snag Joe Girardi as their new manager.

The Philadelphia Phillies have hired former New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi as their next skipper. The team announced that he receives a three-year contract with a team option in 2023. Girardi will be introduced at a news conference Monday. “I’m excited for this next chapter of my career,” Girardi said in a statement.

World/National News

World Series ratings hit a five-year low.

Baseball’s Fall Classic is down by more than a million viewers vs. 2018’s first game. The first game of the World Series delivered a ratings win for Fox on Tuesday, but it fell short of last year’s opener. Regular programming on other networks was mostly unaffected, with NBC’s This Is Us and several other shows actually improving week to week.
