Re: OOC Slate of Games

Its tough to talk about much when we get virtually no news on the team from the athletic department or its pr department. The last bit of info was 9/28 advising that it was the first day of practice. We already knew that. At least get some quotes from Reed on how the new guys look. Even if its the u...

Re: Fordham

New coaching staff seems to be a forgone conclusion. If not, "Earth to Joe.....Joe are you there?" New coaching staff will be found. But as noted throughout this thread, the fundamentals of FCS competitiveness have changed. Apparently dramatically. Will Lehigh and our league brethren be willing to d...

Re: 4 Weeks Out, Make a Prediction

Bison 137, you've just explained to me "Why is there a Pioneer league?" Davidson, Butler, Dayton, Valpo, Drake etc .....so the members can remain D1 without blowing their budget on the excessive costs of a nationally competitive football program. I'd sign up for that in an instant if it helped move ...

Re: 4 Weeks Out, Make a Prediction

This may be a bit heretical to many of our Lehigh brethren, but here goes...... Interesting discussions over on the FCS "AnyGivenSunday" board and on the Bucknell board. Is it worth it to the Patriot league schools to increase football support ($$$$, reshirt rules, roster size, etc.) to increase alu...

Re: 4 Weeks Out, Make a Prediction

Nice to have a wake up call here with all the turmoil over on the football side. With the exception of Kahron, we have pretty much everyone back. And we were darn competitive in the 2nd half last year. If big Nic is as advertised and we stay healthy this could be a special group. Miami, Kansas State...

Re: PRINCETON

Mercy will happen when we get drilled by the hapless Leopards.... This is a sad state of affairs. Reminds me of when I was a child and my dad took us to Bucknell (his alma mater) games in Lewisburg. Dad would say of Lehigh during a Bucknell blowout: "Tremendous school, great band, lousy football."

Re: Penn game

I really don't like being negative but thank goodness basketball practice starts in 44 days. Maybe its just the nature of where the Patriot league football situation is right now. With the exception of maybe Colgate, PL football programs have all regressed since scholarships. I'm just a casual follo...
