GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for April 16, 2020.

College Crosse News

We taped a new Crossecast on Tuesday night on all things Petro.

In this episode Jake, Adam, myself, and special guest Chris Jastrzembski discussed Petro’s legacy at Hopkins, our favorite memories of him, and possible replacements. We also bantered about where we think it may have started to go wrong for coach Petro at JHU and his impact on the Hopkins and the sport as a whole. Moreover, we discussed the latest news in the transfer world and where we think some of the biggest names might land. Finally, we talked about the economic pressure that colleges and universities are under because of the COVID-19 crisis and how that might affect the 2021 season.

Good news for Orange fans: Danny Varello will return to ‘X’ for Syracuse lacrosse in 2021.

The Syracuse lacrosse team will continue to have the best one-two faceoff punch in the country next season. That was set up Wednesday night when senior Danny Varello announced he will be back in 2021.

From US Lacrosse Magazine: JHU Alumni shocked by end of Dave Pietramala era.

When Mike Pellegrino talked to Dave Pietramala over the weekend, everything seemed normal. Pietramala asked his former two-time captain how his preparations for the NFL Draft were going with the New England Patriots, for whom Pellegrino has worked since 2015 and is in his first year as the cornerbacks coach.

Someone created a fake Inside Lacrosse Twitter account and it fooled a lot of people. Our boy Jake spotted the fake instantaneously, though.

Here’s a good post by Tanner Demling of Lacrosse Bucket: Tillman, Maryland finding success in wake of lost season.

Even with the college lacrosse season being cut short due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Maryland head coach John Tillman appears to still be playing chess while a majority of everyone else is still playing checkers.

Truly blessed: Duke’s John Danowski raises money to feed essential workers.

For the first time in his adult life, Duke lacrosse coach John Danowski is spending his spring somewhere other than a lacrosse field. ”There is a certain mourning period for young men who lose a season, but there are a lot of people in much tougher situations than our guys,” he said.

From the PSU Daily Collegian: Decade’s best 30 - Mac O’Keefe’s overtime goal wins Penn State men’s lacrosse its first-ever Big Ten Tournament title in 2019.

Penn State’s first Big Ten Tournament title was fittingly delivered by the program’s most prolific scorer. Attackman Mac O’Keefe’s lightning-fast shot just 25 seconds into overtime put a quick end to No. 15 Johns Hopkins’ chances and set off the bench-clearing celebration in Piscataway.


What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?

You better moooove it on home, buddy: Cow caught by N.J. cops breaking coronavirus curfew.

Yogi the cow is a rebel. Funny Farm Rescue owner Laurie Zaleski said she received a call just as she went to bed around 10 p.m. and noticed a car from her bedroom window. The call turned out to be from Hamilton Township Police Officer Kristi Ware, who found Yogi wandering along the country road.
