COLLEGE CROSSECAST 2020 Conference Previews: Big East, CAA, & Patriot League.

On this batch, Chris, Safe, and Jake take a look at the Big East, CAA, and Patriot League races. They dive into the outlooks of the teams in the conferences, give some predictions, and share their thoughts on the states of a few programs as well (yes, Jake goes off about Hofstra why did you ask?).

The coaches will see you now: Check out the 2020 USILA / Warrior and New Balance Men’s Coaches Preseason Polls.

Time to run it back: National champion men’s lacrosse set to begin title defense.

Virginia men’s lacrosse begins its national title defense Feb. 8 against Loyola at Klöckner Stadium. With a plethora of key pieces from last year’s title-winning run returning, the 2020 Cavaliers have high hopes of bringing another championship back to Charlottesville.

Check out this commercial for the NLL’s upcoming game in Las Vegas.

Albany’s ready to exceed expectations in 2020.

For the first time since 2012, the UAlbany men’s lacrosse team is entering a season projected to finish somewhere other than atop the America East by the league’s coaches. Did the Great Danes ending up third behind Vermont and Stony Brook when the poll was released Monday have any effect on the team?

Virginia tops the 2020 ACC Men’s Lacrosse Preseason Coaches Poll.

Virginia is the preseason favorite in the 2020 ACC Men’s Lacrosse Preseason Coaches Poll, released Tuesday by the conference office.

MARYLAND SEEKS TO RESTORE ITS DEFENSIVE IDENTITY

There are certain things you can almost take for granted in college lacrosse. When it comes to Maryland, it’s assuming the Terrapins won’t have a losing season (they never have had one in nearly a century of play), they’ll be in the NCAA tournament (their 17 consecutive appearances is the longest active streak) and their defense will be their foundation.

What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?

Can you really put a price tag on quality: This giant New Jersey bagel could cost you up to $135.00.

How much are you willing to pay for a bagel? If we’re talking the premium New York stuff made with the right kind of water, a few bucks for a fresh one with some (flavored) cream cheese is par for the course. And while NYC bagels might be getting bigger, they’ve got nothing on the size and price tag at one spot across the Hudson River in Hoboken.
