The COLLEGE CROSSECAST Decade in Review series is back and this time we’re talking about the master strategists, playcallers, and recruiters in the sport. That’s right, we’re breaking down the best head coaches in NCAA Men’s Lacrosse through the 2010’s. I’m joined by Jake once again as we come up with the top coaches in the game throughout the decade. We look at how they built up their programs, adjusted on the fly, and much more to decide who’s the best of the best. In the end, we agreed that you shouldn’t count out Touchdown John Danowski, but that won’t take away anything from the other coaches on the list.
There may still be months to wait until the 2020 lacrosse season officially begins, but on Saturday night in Cortland, two lacrosse powers went head-to-head in a fall scrimmage that felt like a late-spring matchup. A large crowd was on hand to see the battle, which saw Denver and Syracuse play to a 15-15 tie. The Orange held a 15-11 lead late into the fourth quarter when the teams began subbing more freely. “It was good to get out here against a different opponent, the guys were certainly ready for that,” said head coach John Desko. “There are some things I think we did really well, we also had a lot of turnovers and didn’t clear the ball well, so we’ll get to film and use this to continue to get better.”

With 7:52 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Major League Lacrosse championship game Sunday at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, Ryan Lee received a pass from Kyle Pless in transition, shot and scored, giving the Denver Outlaws a 9-8 lead over the Chesapeake Bayhawks. It was Denver’s first lead of the game and its sixth consecutive goal since the start of the second half. For the Bayhawks players, however, it wasn’t time to panic; it was just time to dig deeper.
Just a bit short!
Lacrosse will become a TSSAA sanctioned sport in 2021, but there are already club teams across the area. The team from Science Hill and a the Unified Greene County team give us a lesson in Lacrosse 101.

College Crosse Fall Ball Matrix
At least for me, I don't take a lot out of fall ball. If new rules are instituted, that's what I'm interested in seeing. But most line combinations and who's playing where I take with a grain of salt. https://t.co/ae62sKgXFh— Chris Jastrzembski (@Chris_Jast) October 5, 2019

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
There’s a ridiculousness about the Hoagie Room. Without a doubt, the concept is a success — a small private dining room in the back of Pizzeria Beddia where Joe Beddia’s friend and teammate, John Walker, throws hoagie parties. It’s predicated on the idea that hoagies deserve any sort of culinary stardom at all. In theory, they don’t. But this is Philly, a city that loves itself and its food culture, so the Hoagie Room is often sold out.
Todd Phillips’ Joker had the last laugh in its box office debut, earning a huge $93.5 million domestically from 4,374 theaters to set a new opening record for the month of October despite heightened security at cinemas across the U.S. The dark, R-rated supervillain movie starring Joaquin Phoenix as a mentally ill misfit turned homicidal maniac did even more business overseas, raking in $140.5 million from more than 70 markets for a global start of $234 million (it doesn’t yet have a release date in China). Both figures likewise set new benchmarks for the month.
