GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for January 31, 2020.
College Crosse News
ESPN will offer more than 450 regular season college lacrosse games across ESPNU, ACC Network (ACCN), ESPN3, ACCNX and ESPN+ this season. ESPNU and ACCN will televise 53 matchups, with more than 400 available on ESPN3, ACCNX and ESPN+ via the ESPN App.
As some of you probably saw last night, our boy Chris stepped down as co-manager of the site. This is obviously tough news with the season starting this weekend, but it is what it is. I’ll let Chris speak for himself, but I can assure that he, myself and everyone at the site are on great terms and our friendship has never been stronger.
Not leaving ESPN at all and hope to continue to make an impact on the college lax scene there for years to come.— Chris Jastrzembski (@Chris_Jast) January 31, 2020
Happy for you and wish you the best. We’ll always have the Hobart game throw incident— In The (D3FB) Huddle (@D3FBHuddle) January 31, 2020
Chris, your work was terrific, and you will be missed.— Brian Horton (@horton1733) January 31, 2020
Chris, I respect your game immensely. You balanced your obvious love of the sport with high journalistic standards in everything that you did. Thank you and good luck!— Scott Hensley (@scotthensley) January 31, 2020
While things will change a little around here without Chris, rest assured the kid isn’t going anywhere as he will still be very much involved with the sport of lacrosse.
Also wanted to emphasis that I'M NOT LEAVING THE GREAT SPORT OF LACROSSE either!— Chris Jastrzembski (@Chris_Jast) January 31, 2020
We’ll all miss working with him on a daily basis, but we’re all still good friends and I’m grateful for the time we’ve spent working together for the last four years.
but in all seriousness, we're really gonna miss everything @Chris_Jast has done for us at College Crosse. He really brought his heart and soul to the site and it's going to be sad to see him go— Ryan McDonnell (@RyanMcD29) January 31, 2020
While we can never replace Chris, you can sleep at ease knowing myself, Jake, Adam, & Ryan are still here to steer the ship. We may end up adding someone to contribute, but the immediate future is secure and we’re still very excited about the upcoming season.
However, if you’re worried if this means the site is going away or is going to slow down the frequency of its content or podcasts or any of that, have no fear!— College Crosse (@College_Crosse) January 31, 2020
Myself, Safe, Ryan, and Adam are all still here and all gonna keep on going with the content and jokes you love.
There will still be a Prospectus every day, there’ll still be a College Crosse Top 20 (working on adding a great 5th voter with Chris out), Crossecast will go on. And while none of us are Chris and can’t replace him, there will be articles about the games and season as it goes on— College Crosse (@College_Crosse) January 31, 2020
When people learn about my past life as a Division III head coach of men’s lacrosse at Capital University (Columbus, Ohio), it is usually followed up with some variation of one question: What’s the difference between coaching men and women?
This season, Ohio State will debut a weekly podcast that covers all things Buckeye lacrosse. Hosted by Dominique Alexander, a captain in 2013 who just wrapped up his first season in the Premier Lacrosse League, the Buckeye Lacrosse Podcast will feature insights from head coach Nick Myers, assistant coaches, players and support staff. Listeners will gain a better understanding for all the things that make Ohio State lacrosse – and the Department of Athletics as a whole – unique.
Take your lunch break and check out the debut episode of the Buckeye Lacrosse Podcast.— Ohio State Men's LAX (@OhioStateMLAX) January 30, 2020

Big Ten lacrosse fans are going to want to check out these player interviews.
The news was later confirmed by an OSU spokesperson, who said that the junior’s “timeline is unclear” as the Buckeyes prepare for their opener against Detroit Mercy on Tuesday.

What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?
Is it the gorgeous building? The brewery’s community-oriented mission? The cool neighborhood that’s just near enough to Center City? Whatever the reason, when Billy Penn hosts Philly Quizzo at Triple Bottom Brewing, there’s always a packed house.
The UK formally leaves the European Union (EU) at 23:00 on Friday, 31 January. But it will immediately enter an 11-month transition period. During the transition the UK will continue to obey EU rules and pay money to the EU. Most things will stay the same but there will be some changes.
