2019 Men’s College Lacrosse Year In Review: #6 Loyola Greyhounds.

Season Summary - Loyola had nearly everything they needed to make a deep run in May. Led by a Tewaaraton favorite in Pat Spencer and stud goalie Jacob Stover, the Greyhounds hoped to claim the program’s second national championship this decade.

And things appeared to look that way in the early going. In their season opener against Virginia, Loyola got a pair of five-goal performances from Spencer and Kevin Lindley along with 18 saves from Stover in an eight-goal victory. The following week down Charles Street at Johns Hopkins was a similar story as Spencer dominated the Blue Jays defense with freshman midfielder Chase Scanlan scoring six points in an 18-12 win.

Towson added former Providence assistant Matt Musci to the staff.

With the 2019-20 academic year underway, Towson University head men’s lacrosse coach Shawn Nadelen has announced Matt Musci as the program’s newest addition. Musci will serve as an assistant coach/offensive coordinator. “The Towson lacrosse family is excited to welcome in Matt Musci and his family,” said Nadelen. “Matt is a proven leader that works very hard to establish strong relationships with his players in order to develop them into great young men and lacrosse players. His passion for the game of lacrosse is evident and his beliefs in what type of culture a program should have is completely in line with our culture at Towson. I am eager to get to work alongside Matt as we enter into the 2019-20 year.”

Here’s another good article about Jared’s decision.

Maryland men’s lacrosse attackman Jared Bernhardt will pursue an opportunity to play college football as a graduate transfer, once he completes his undergraduate career with the Terps after the coming spring season. “After numerous conversations with Jared over the years, I knew playing college football was always a dream of his,” coach John Tillman said in a press release. “We are supporting him during this process to help him make the best decision for his future after finishing his collegiate lacrosse career.”

Here’s a highlight video of Jared balling out on the football field when he was in high school.

Bang: Comcast exec drops a $1K tip on a $47 bill.

When an NFL star left a 20-cent (as opposed to 20 percent) tip at P.Y.T. in 2014, I exposed his utter rudeness. And when a group of UPenn jerks tipped 40 cents on a $26 round that same year, I had a little fun at their expense as well. But we’re not just about bad news and negativity here at Foobooz. So when I learned that longtime Belgian Cafe bartender Lisa Sloat received a $1,000 tip from a Comcast exec, I had to talk to both of them.
