"The Rivalry" on the hardwood, of course, would be a big deal even if both teams were winless going into this so-called winter month, with Madness-like temperatures outside possibly reaching 70 degrees.
But with Bucknell and American, in effect, locking up the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in the Patriot League tournament in March, this weekend's game, televised nationally on CBS College Sports this Sunday at 2:00 PM Eastern, will have gigantic implications for the incredibly valuable No. 3 seed. The winner will have the inside track at the No. 3 seed, a home game in the first round of the playoffs, and a fighting chance to play in the championship. The loser could be the No. 5 seed or worse, playing on the road in the first round and facing a very, very uphill climb at a shot at the Patriot League championship.
It's going to be a tense, emotional affair at Stabler this weekend, and the men's basketball team would have it no other way. (more)

While every Patriot League schedule is unannounced so far by the league office and the member schools, I've been able to piece together the schedule at the CSN web site.
The picture it paints is nothing short of fascinating - and it might even offer an insight as to the visions the football schools of the Patriot League has for themselves. (more)

Last week, I posted a large write-up on Lehigh's incoming class. Once that was done, I realized I had more key bits of information on the incoming class that deserved its own blog post - stuff I've written already, of course, but also some new articles I was able to dig up (like one on QB/ATH Matt McHale, pictured to my left).
Just in case you weren't jacked up already, below the flip enjoy more tidbits of information on the incoming class. There was a lot I got the first time - but plenty, plenty more that I was able to compile once Lehigh announced their class of 2015 last week.
