College Crosse Game Day For March 14, 2020: All Games Canceled & Attachments

The Ides of March hit real hard this year

Maybe this is part of the grieving process or a force of habit, but either way, I made a Big Board for today. It was eerie going through each team’s home page as I was filling it out, only to see the word “Canceled” on the schedule page. On the Notre Dame men’s lacrosse schedule page all the unplayed games have been removed, leaving only a handful of game day box scores & recaps from earlier this season on the page, which was tough to see.

While a few team sites said that their games today were postponed or suspended, I think those were just euphemisms. Even if the COVID-19 outbreak stopped in the next month or so and things started getting back to normal by mid-April, I doubt any of the games scheduled for today will be made up this year.

Anyway, with a heavy heart, here is the Big Board for today. Clicking on the team name will take you to that team’s home page. There are no games being streamed or televised and there are no Live Stats today.

Week 6 CROSSECAST

We will be taping a new CROSSECAST this evening that should go up either later tonight or early tomorrow.

Attachments

Here’s a bit of good news: NCAA to grant spring sport student athletes extra year of eligibility.

Then around 2:00 PM the Inside the NCAA Twitter account Tweeted out a post that confirmed much of the earlier speculation and provided clarity on the issue. The Tweet stated that the NCAA Board of Governors encouraged conferences and schools to make decisions in the best interest of their students and to consider “necessary adjustments to or waivers of rules where appropriate.”

Good move by the MCLA as well.

Team tributes are still coming in and each one hurts in its own way.

From Syracuse.com: John Desko on breaking coronavirus news to Syracuse lacrosse.

Friday afternoon, Desko appeared on Brent Axe’s ‘On the Block’ show on ESPN Radio Syracuse to discuss some of the issues surrounding the development.

Telling his players

”We were supposed to be on a bus this morning to head down to New Jersey and play Rutgers. I had to tell the guys right at the end of practice yesterday that wasn’t going to happen.

From the Times Union: UAlbany lacrosse’s Scott Marr consoles players, daughter.

“I love being around them,’’ Marr said. “I felt like we were really starting to make some headway and start to gel. This week of practice was awesome. We had already had a good week of practice and it’s just, to not see a team grow until the end, until the final whistle, cut short, was just tough.”

This should be a good podcast.

Rest in peace: Le Moyne saddened by passing of Kaiden Tubbert.

The Le Moyne College community is mourning the sudden passing of Kaiden Tubbert, a junior midfielder on the men’s lacrosse team, early this morning.

”We are deeply saddened by this incredible loss, and we extend our condolences to Kaiden’s family and all those who knew him,” said Le Moyne President Linda LeMura. “I know that I can count on the compassion that is a hallmark of Le Moyne to get us through this extraordinarily difficult time. I ask that you keep him, his family and friends in your prayers.”

I think they meant 11: Missed opportunities and the case for Syracuse men’s lacrosse’s 12th national title.

Still, with the majority of voters saying that Syracuse is the best team in the country, and no one to prove them wrong, it’s only fair they hand over the title to the Orange, no?

From The Morning Call: Job or another season of lacrosse? After coronavirus cancellations, college athletes may have dilemma on their hands.

Lehigh senior Erik DiGirolamo will graduate in May with a finance degree and has accepted a job offer that will begin in September. This week, because of the novel coronavirus pandemic, his college lacrosse career ostensibly ended. But what if the NCAA can engineer a way to extend eligibility for those athletes whose spring seasons have been canceled? Thousands of athletes like DiGirolamo will face a decision.

US Lacrosse cancels two national events, postpones others.

By Marisa Ingemi of the Boston Herald: Boston University men’s lacrosse gathers one last time, celebrates seniors.

The last time the Boston University men’s lacrosse seniors gathered wasn’t met with any fanfare. Instead of finishing the season together on senior day, in their final Patriot League contest against Army on April 24, the seven seniors practiced with their teammates one final time Friday before they will disperse.

That’s it for today’s post. Feel free to send us some questions you want answered during tonight’s podcast.
