Tongue-in-cheek, no doubt

There are some very good, dedicated fans here who are not afraid to share the news about Lehigh wrestling. Every possible avenue should be exploited, no?

There will always be those who prefer to horde information thinking others may not be as worthy as themselves to posses it.

Really? I see very few schools in any of the Fora. And mostly just to advertise an upcoming event. (Bellarmine does some).
We can all read the media and post here ourselves.
Spoken like a true insider, well done

Yes - to be clear I was definitely kidding. I'm always very grateful to the knowledgeable people on here who share good information on a regular basis. It definitely would be nice if someone "official" popped in every now and then to acknowledge the committed folks here. On the other hand, there's something to be said for the free-standing nature of this forum where people can speak freely (other than the occasional offended parent).

I do bring students, from Lehigh and surrounding schools.. I hire high school wrestlers to shovel my driveway. I make mention of the team in my classes, especially when they do something great. Like bringing to their attention Crookham's win over Vito. I'm just interested in being responsible and not betraying a trust. They're kids. Pretty smart kids at that.

And I am a professor. I don't act like it sometimes, but I am.

Reference has been made to having a 'fan club'. Well, one does exist, but unfortunately, the membership has dwindled over the past years; especially since the pandemic. The Lehigh fan base is getting greyer and balding, with fewer people interested in committing the time and effort to run such an organization. There is a dearth of interest by the recent and current students about wrestling, and unless the University can come up with ideas to rejuvenate interest in the tradition, the base will continue to dwindle.

Oh, come on Oracle. I fear you may be chilling expression on this forum. What's obvious to you may not be obvious to everyone. And some people may just feel like posting what's on their mind at the time even if it's been written before. Where's the harm?

Some people are easily triggered by the things they just don't want to hear. Mostly those old, grey and balding folks. :P

(I must confess - I'm 2 out of 3 on that criteria. :roll: )
