GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for February 4, 2020.

SAD: Lacrosse in Wolfpack’s past but not in near future.

But according to Boo Corrigan, the school has no immediate plans to add any sport — including men’s or women’s lacrosse. ”Sure, it would be something great to add personally,” Corrigan said. “But it’s not Boo Corrigan University, it’s NC State University.”

From Inside Lacrosse: Duke’s Joe Robertson to miss 2020 season due to torn ACL.

Junior attackman Joe Robertson will undergo surgery for a torn ACL and will miss the 2020 men’s lacrosse season, the team issued in a statement Monday a.m.

Here’s a great video from Hampton.

Here’s a nice article about the Buckeyes for all you Ohio State fans.

Like a fine wine, Ohio State men’s lacrosse hopes its best talent gets better with age entering the new year. The No. 12 Buckeyes open their season Tuesday against Detroit Mercy, returning an experienced team that finished 8-4 a season ago, missing out on the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row.

I really love this ACC video with Tiffany, Corrigan, Danowski, & Breschi.

From NBC Sports: Goalies react to rise of the lacrosse shot in the NHL.

The lacrosse shot, invented by Bill Armstrong and made world famous by Mike Legg, has been in hockey for a long time. Players all around the world and at various levels of the game have successfully pulled it off. Yet NHL players hadn’t been brave enough to try on a regular basis until Svechnikov’s goal. Now, he’s done it twice, Filip Forsberg scored with it two weeks ago, and it’s becoming a thing.

Syracuse looked good in their scrimmage versus Yale.

Oh boy, good luck to the Raiders: After last year’s defeat, Colgate has Syracuse’s full attention.

The Syracuse lacrosse team is focused on keeping Colgate from celebrating on the Carrier Dome turf Friday, like the Raiders did after upsetting the Orange last season.
