As of 12:30 PM today, the counter passed over to 83 days until Lehigh's home opener versus Central Connecticut State.  The trouble is, on Lehigh's football roster there are two No. 84s - a fact I conveniently missed.  We continue our day countdown towards the football season, but with our second No. 84.

That no. 84, sophomore WR Derek Knott.

The One Where Dan Wolken Gets Me To Talk FCS Financials

At any given time I have about a dozen writing subjects buzzing around in my head like a monkey on uppers.  Today I woke up and said, what do I write about today?  Realignment?  The CAA?  Stony Brook?  Appalachian State's move to the Sun Belt?  Lehigh's expected QB battle in camp this August?

Instead, inspiration came from an unexpected source: USA Today reporter Dan Wolken's Twitter feed.

Twitter allows a 140 character limit on tweets, meaning statistics posted there can be interpreted any way one chooses.  And his Twitter report from the NCAA convocation in Florida made me (incorrectly) defensive - but allows me to give some insight behind the numbers of Division I Athletics.

This Just In - Patriot League APRs are Awesome

The NCAA released academic progress rate information on all their member schools, and - here's a shocker - Lehigh and the Patriot League in general had stellar APR numbers.

Nine Mountain Hawk teams had perfect scores of 1000 - meaning, every single athlete on those teams carried more than a 2.7 GPA and made progress towards graduation.

One of those teams was the men's basketball team, including a certain player named G C.J. McCollum who will be hearing his name called in the NBA Draft later this month.

The full data, for Lehigh and Patriot League football and basketball, is included below.  (Including incoming members Boston University and Loyola University (MD).
