GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for October 31, 2019.

Happy Halloween

From all of us here at College Crosse, we’d like to wish all of you a happy and safe Halloween. Don’t eat all your candy in one night, kids, that’s a rookie mistake. You’ll get sick AND you won’t have any candy in the weeks before Thanksgiving. Remember, think long-term strategy.

DOWN!

Check out Maryland women’s lacrosse head coach Cathy Reese’s National Lacrosse Hall of Fame induction speech.

Lacrosse goals in hockey are about substance and not flash.

It happened, and it’s glorious. More than 23 year after Mike Legg seemingly defied physics and converted the infamous “Michigan goal” during a 1996 NCAA Tournament game against Minnesota, a young, mega-skilled up-and-coming star tried the lacrosse style move in a regular-season NHL game — and it worked.

Manhattan signed an absolute BALLER for the 2020 season.

US Lacrosse Magazine with a good article about the new World Lacrosse Olympic trial rules and whether or not they’ll help the game grow around the world.

World Lacrosse’s new Olympic trial rules found support growing among U.S. and Canadian national team players and coaches after using them in a pair of exhibition games at the Fall Classic on Oct. 20. Through its Blue Skies Working Group, World Lacrosse is trying to develop a new discipline of the sport that would broaden its international appeal and best position it to be included in the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.

No goal is safe from Dox Aitken.

Nice profile on our favorite Northwestern basketball player, Pat Spencer!

How will Pat Spencer’s athleticism translate to Division 1 basketball? Standing at 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, Spencer has a decent frame for a guard, and plenty of quickness and strength. He also is the NCAA’s all-time lacrosse assists leader, a testament to his vision on the field, which could correspond to a unique strength on the court.

Quinnipiac putting in that work.

Here’s a good article on Andrew McAdorey, the #1 recruit in the country for the class of 2021, and his decision to attend Duke.

It’s a heck of a first-world problem to have, but that didn’t make it any easier for Andrew McAdorey to figure out what college that he wanted to attend. All of college lacrosse’s heavy hitters made their pitch to the Team 91 2020 Crush midfielder and St. Anthony‘s midfielder, the No. 1 player in the class of 2021 according to both the National Lacrosse Federation and Inside Lacrosse.

Yesterday was Red Cone Drill day at NJIT. Things got intense.

Speaking of NJIT, I think little man’s trying to say that he’s got next.

What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?

Oh boy: Philly Soul and five other Arena Football League squads reportedly suspend local operations.

All six existing Arena Football League teams, including the Philadelphia Soul, have reportedly closed local operations, and the league itself could suspend operations in the next few weeks.

Brady to the Charges next season?

While Tom Brady’s future became a major topic of conversation around the NFL this week, the future Hall of Fame quarterback is focused solely on trying to win a record seventh Lombardi Trophy in New England. However, should he look to play elsewhere in 2020, several sources who know him well believe there would be one team to clearly watch: the Los Angeles Chargers.
