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.

It’s about time: ESPN releases 2020 college lacrosse TV schedule.

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.

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.

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.

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.
