The fall has already begun for most college lacrosse teams. It’ll be a time to get in proper shape, learn or remember plays and other facets of the game, participate in a multitude of scrimmages, and get ready for January. This summer has seen a lot of changes, mainly on the coaching end. Some teams saw a few notable transfers enter and leave their programs as well. With that in mind, here are some teams whose stock has gone up or gone down since the end of the NCAA Tournament in May. Overall, a lot of teams made improvements during the offseason, even those that are in the “stock down” section.
On Friday Chris put up a Stock Up, Stock Down: Fall 2019 Update post as follow-up article to the 2019 Year In Review series. The post looked at which which teams stocks have risen and fallen since the since the end of the 2019 NCAA Tournament. This Crossecast episode is a Stock Up, Stock Down companion post where Chris and I discuss which teams, story lines, and topics we’re buying or selling going into 2020.

University of Detroit Mercy officials hope that new lights at Titan Field signal the start of a bigger plan to develop an “athletic village” on campus, which would tie into an even broader capital improvement campaign. The first night game in more than 50 years will be played Saturday at Titan Field in northwest Detroit when the men’s soccer team takes on the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
What a great view of Titan Field with the lights shining bright at our first home game since 1964. Thank you to all the donors who made this happen! #DetroitsCollegeTeam— Detroit Mercy Titans (@detroittitans) September 15, 2019

NBC Sports prides itself on taking leagues that may be unfamiliar to sports viewers and turning them into top-tier TV properties. Think the network’s English Premier League Soccer coverage. That mirrors its approach with the Premier Lacrosse League, which launched earlier this year. By taking risks more established sports leagues wouldn’t try, founders Paul Rabil and brother Mike Rabil have established their startup as a legit player.

If you come to this site, you’re more than likely a lacrosse fan. You want to read about news and opinions primary in the college lacrosse realm. But 99% of lacrosse fans are also fans of other sports. The majority of them are also fans of football, basketball, hockey, and baseball. But a smaller number of them are fans of boxing. Which is where this post is based on.
Why do lacrosse players wear helmets? Soccer players don’t. It’s basically soccer with sticks, right? Is it because of the sticks? Then why don’t golfers wear them? They have sticks too. Really makes you think.— Kat Timpf (@KatTimpf) September 14, 2019
Now every future Furman lacrosse player will know about Jackson Roberts, the student-coach turned legend, with a locker room named in his honor. “It’s hard to hear us talk about Jackson in the past and that he’s no longer here with us. But he will always be here with us in spirit, and he will always be in this locker room,” said Lisa Roberts, Jackson Roberts’ mother.

What’s Up, New PhilaYorkJersey?
We know, we know. The taxes. The Turnpike. The never-ending Taylor ham vs. pork roll war. Despite all that, New Jersey was named one of the happiest states in America. Really. After all, our beaches are beautiful. Our produce is delish. And we kinda like that Jersey ‘tude.
It’s not a high-paying job, but more than 1,000 people want the chance to kill pythons in Florida’s Everglades.
