Colorado Mesa (CMU) scores 52 (!) points on Johnson & Wales, a d-pole who will do anything to get in his attackman’s head and today’s top story.
The details: Colorado Mesa (CMU), a Division II university located in Grand Junction, Colorado, put up 52 (!) points on nearby Division III team Johnson & Wales on Tuesday night. Social media was divided on whether the coach was completely out-of-line for running the score up or whether Johnson & Wales needed to compete harder. One thing is for sure, you hate to see one of your players get injured in the final minutes of a contest like this.
The bottom line: CMU set an NCAA Division II record for points in a game at the hands of a team that had transitioned to the Division III ranks in 2018.
The details: Have you ever had a defender that would do anything to get in your head? This d-pole went after one of a lacrosse player’s most essential part of his uniform… the socks.
The bottom line: This d-pole is showing absolutely zero respect!
The details: Suicide is one of the most tragic things that occurs in today’s world. One Maryland lacrosse player, Roman Puglise, is honoring his friend Gus Lee, a football player at Rutgers University who had committed suicide in December. We think that Roman’s efforts to honor his friend are noble and approve 100%,
Bottom line: If you or someone you know is affected by thoughts of self-harm or suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255.
