Seven home games, including the return of the Johns Hopkins series, highlight the 2020 Navy men’s lacrosse schedule released Tuesday by first-year head coach Joe Amplo. Navy’s first three games of the 2020 campaign will be against programs the Mids have never played, including kicking off the season on Feb. 7 against Manhattan. Led by sixth-year head coach Drew Kelleher, the Jaspers put together a 6-8 record last spring and finished the season as the top-ranked man-down defense (.833) in the country and second best in clearing percentage (.888).
Be on the look out for Chris’ breakdown of Navy’s 2020 schedule.

Touching video from Cornell men’s lacrosse.
Florida women’s lacrosse coach Amanda O’Leary remembers when games in her sport took 90 minutes, or maybe a few minutes longer. That pace seems like a relic of the past. Now, it’s common for those contests -- two 30-minute halves plus a 15-minute halftime -- to run past the 2 1/2 hour mark. Zzzzzzzz.

In spring of 2021, the Edgewood College Athletic Department will be introducing men’s volleyball and both men’s and women’s lacrosse to the lineup of athletics offered at the college. Amidst the chatter of declining enrollment at Edgewood, Athletic Director Al Brisack has high hopes for the new teams encouraging incoming freshmen to choose Edgewood as their place of study and to practice athletics. “It’ll help,” said Brisack. “The reality is we’re in a position from Athletics where we can help with that.”

What’s Up, New PhilaYorkJersey?
When HBO asked viewers to pick their top three favorite HBO characters, one name saw so much action, it trended on Twitter for most of Tuesday. The name? Tony Soprano, of course. Soprano’s name seemed to pop up the most in reply to HBO’s informal poll. The question was part of the cable network’s Recommended by Humans initiative, which presents itself as an alternative to streaming algorithms, relying on reviews from individual viewers and their comment on social media in order to recommend HBO programming.
Increasingly sophisticated killer AI robots and machines could accidentally start a war and lead to mass atrocities, an ex-Google worker has told The Guardian.

She has called for all unmanned autonomous weapons to be banned.
