I know, it's not fair to take a vacation and leave everyone in the lurch concerning the scholarship debate (hint: you could read my elaborate piece on College Sporting News summing up my five blog postings on the matter), but even if it is a vacation involving family reunions, mountain hiking and meeting a legend, it will (fortunately? unfortunately?) mean that I'll be incommunicado for the next week and a half.
Yes, I do know that Matt Dougherty's last Sports Network column ranks senior C John Reese as one of the best linemen in all of FCS. Congratulations to John, who will be hiking off to one of the top QBs in all of FCS, senior QB Sedale Threatt. What you may not have known is that Mr. Dougherty is on his way to be the media director of the Patriot League starting, oh, in a couple of days.
The latest on the message boards involves a recruit which has committed to Lehigh. Don't believe everything you read.
And finally, there's a lot of speculation regarding scholarships in Ed Laubach's column posted last Sunday in the Easton Express-Times. Although the ultimate decision will rest with the ten school presidents, it is, undeniably, interesting that coach Tavani and Mr. Laubach would hint so strongly that maybe scholarships are on the horizon. Speculation, or inside information? You decide.
See you in July!
