Here are some highlights from Syracuse vs. Hobart.

Coach Desko and his lads talked to the media after the Hobart game.

Make sure you read Chris’ Troy Nunes post about Syracuse’s big win over Hobart.

Early on, it looked like the Syracuse Orange men’s lacrosse team was going to be in a dogfight with the rival Hobart Statesmen. After a back-and-forth first quarter, the Statesmen scored the opening goal in the second quarter before the Orange went on a 3-0 run to take a 5-3 lead. It didn’t take long for Hobart to tie the game back up at five, but that would be it for the home team scoring. Syracuse’s defense stonewalled the Statesmen for the remaining 37:44 of the game and scored the final 12 goals en route to a 17-5 shellacking to keep the new look Kraus-Simmons Trophy in Syracuse.

We released our newest podcast yesterday.

We’re into the final month of the regular season in NCAA Men’s Lacrosse. All the conferences have begun their schedules and the top teams are starting to settle themselves out. But this is lacrosse, so there’s still plenty of chaos to go around. And that always makes for good radio, which makes us here happy when we’re recording COLLEGE CROSSECAST.

On this edition I’m joined by Safe and Chris as we start off with some news coming out of the MLL (1:10) before we go through the NCAA scoreboard (14:30). Then we break down plenty of the week’s biggest games, going through Yale-Penn (24:00), Syracuse-Notre Dame (29:20), Mount St. Mary’s rise (33:50), the CAA already living up to the THUNDERDOME! billing (35:50), Georgetown-Denver (39:12), Duke-UNC (45:22), Rutgers-Ohio State (53:25), and Penn State-Maryland (1:06:35). We unveil our College Crosse Top 20 on the show (1:12:00) before getting you set for today’s games (1:15:06) and end with our mailbag which includes an exercise in creating a 6-team superconference (1:20:38).

Viera High lacrosse player collapses during practice after cardiac arrest.

A Viera High School student collapsed Monday during lacrosse practice after experiencing cardiac arrest, Brevard County School officials said. Two coaches helped administer CPR and lifesaving efforts on the teen, who wears No. 23 on the team. He was taken to Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando. The teen is not out of the woods yet, Brevard County school officials said. Brevard and Space Coast lacrosse groups are asking for area lacrosse teams and their families to keep the student and his family in their thoughts.

Here’s a nice video from Ohio State thanking the alums who came back for alumni weekend.

Great to see PSU get some love from the local press.

Imagine, for a moment, that the Penn State football team was ranked No. 1 in the nation. Then imagine that the Nittany Lions were coming off a stirring road victory over a Big Ten rival that was ranked No. 3 in the nation. Finally, imagine that the latest victory came against one of the most storied programs in the nation — a program that had owned a 36-0 lifetime record vs. PSU, not to mention three national championships. If that was the case, you wouldn’t need a great imagination to predict the reaction in these parts.

Horry County lacrosse teams raise money for student forced to amputate hand from rare cancer.

A typically gritty rivalry between Socastee and St. James high schools took a charitable approach Monday. The two schools came together to raise funds for a middle school student battling a rare form of cancer. Declan Maloney played on St. James’ JV lacrosse team in 2018 as a seventh grader. Now, Maloney watches from the sideline after doctors were forced to amputate his hand.

Fallen hero and his family honored during high school lacrosse game.

East Forsyth High School and Glenn High School varsity lacrosse teams honored a fallen hero during their rivalry game on Tuesday night. Wes Van Dorn, who grew up in Greensboro and graduated from Southeast Guilford High School in 2002, was killed in 2014 when the U.S. Navy helicopter he was piloting crashed during a training mission off the coast of Virginia Beach. Some describe that helicopter, the MH-53E Sea Dragon, is the Navy’s oldest and most dangerous helicopter. This aircraft and Van Dorn’s death is the focus of a new documentary.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Philly is thinking of installing a congestion tax.

New York will soon become the first U.S. city to charge drivers to access its most congested neighborhoods — and Philly says it’s watching closely and considering the same move. Beginning in 2021, New York drivers will have to pay what will be called a “congestion fee” to enter Manhattan below 60th Street, where the average speed for vehicles is 4.7 mph (down from 6.9 mph in 1994). The fee amount has yet to be determined — Gov. Andrew Cuomo has proposed consulting a panel of transportation experts to set the cost.
