Yesterday only had one game, but it was a classic between Notre Dame & Maryland.

No. 17 Notre Dame (2-1) defeated No. 2 Maryland (5-1) 14-13 in overtime for a huge bounce-back victory Sunday afternoon inside the Loftus Sports Center. Junior Brian Willetts sent a diving shot past the Maryland goalkeeper in overtime to give the Irish the dramatic, thrilling win. Willets (3 goals, 2 assists) and senior Brendan Gleason (4 goals, 1 assist) both finished with five points to lead Notre Dame. Sophomore Connor Morin (3 goals, 1 assist) also added his first career hat trick in the victory.

Late collapse from Penn men’s lacrosse thwarts possible upset of No. 5 Penn State.

Saturday was a confusing day for scorekeepers, as Penn men’s lacrosse traveled to State College, Pa. to play in-state rival No. 5 Penn State. Despite sticking with the Nittany Lions for the entire game, the Red and Blue let in two last minute goals to go down 15-14 in a dramatic finish. After dropping their two opening games to then-No.3 Maryland and No. 5 Duke by scores of 13-12 and 17-7, respectively, the Quakers (0-3) looked to break their losing streak in their 38th meeting with Penn State (4-1).

I’d probably rank Jacksonville’s digital video team in the top-5.

Here’s an opinion piece about the new shot clock.

A month into the 2019 NCAA men’s lacrosse season, fans have noticed a huge change in how the game is timed this season. This past off-season, the NCAA added an 80-second shot clock at the start of every offensive possession. This change replaces the horribly confusing system used last year where the referees were allowed to turn on a 10-second shot clock — one that was counted down verbally — any time they thought the offense was delaying. This rule put the referees in a very awkward position, as it was up to them to decide whether or not the offense was putting in enough effort to score. This strange enforcement policy added to the already confusing list of rules that made watching and understanding lacrosse extremely difficult for newer fans.

Check out Chris’ post on Syracuse’s loss to UVA over the weekend.

It looked like the Syracuse Orange would take another ACC opening win over the Virginia Cavaliers after Stephen Rehfuss scored his second goal of the game (and the season) to give the Orange a four-goal lead. I even thought the game was out of hands.

We were fooled.

Virginia went on a 6-1 run in the final 11:29 of the game, including a 5-1 run in the final nine minutes of regulation, as they completed the comeback in a 15-14 win in overtime inside the Carrier Dome. Sophomore midfielder Jacob Buttermore had a hat-trick as he continues to make an impression in the early portion of the season, and redshirt junior attackman Stephen Rehfuss, who’s been slow to produce this season due to the flu, scored two goals and assisted on another. Junior goalie Drake Porter made 14 saves in the loss.

Polls will be out today. Here are some ballots.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

The Philly Flower Show is this week! The Washington Post did an article about it over the weekend.

From afar, Nick McCullough’s display at this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show is dense with June-flowering perennials, and there is something of the English cottage garden about it. But close up, he wants viewers to be transported to the stage of Woodstock — yes, that Woodstock — looking out to a sea of tie-dyed, peace-loving children of Aquarius, reincarnated almost 50 years on as astilbes, yarrows, salvias and coneflowers. “The idea is you’re onstage and you have all these eyes staring back at you, and the sequence of flowers is meant to overwhelm you,” he said. In sum, it is a garden more for Jimi Hendrix than Beatrix Potter. McCullough, by all appearances, is not smoking anything.

I took my mom to the show yesterday. Here are some pictures.

Scary moment as UNC head coach Roy WIlliams collapsed on the court during the game versus Clemson over the weekend.

North Carolina coach Roy Williams dropped to one knee on the sidelines during the first half of the Tar Heels’ ACC matchup against Clemson on Saturday. The university said Williams’ collapse was a result of vertigo, a condition he’s been previously diagnosed with and one that has affected him in past games. Williams had to be helped off the court after the scary collapse with less than a minute remaining before halftime. As he was assisted off the court, the Clemson home crowd cheered for the opposing coach with a standing ovation and the 68-year-old coach was coherent enough to wave back to the crowd.
