Know Your 2013 Opponents: Georgetown

If Sesame Street sponsored the 2012 Georgetown football season, unquestionable it would have been brought to you by the number 5.

5 as is in: number of wins, a 5-6 season.

But more unusually, though, 5 was also the number of quarterbacks that attempted a pass for the Hoyas last season.

An incredible run of injuries at the most important position on the field saw the Hoyas fall back to a 5-6, though they did win two out of their last three games, including their third straight over Lafayette, 20-17.

The Hoyas will always bring a strong defense to the table, as always.  But this year, Georgetown's title contention hopes most likely rest in the hands of senior QB Isaiah Kempf - and hopefully not four more quarterbacks.

Lehigh's Summer of Pro

During the football season, I've gotten in the writing habit of picking a "Sunday Word", and using it to describe what happened the previous week.

I've been slack in getting this going this preseason, but the only possible word that can perfectly summarize this Lehigh football offseason is "pro".

The NCAA's big ad campaign for years now has been that "most athletes go 'pro' in something other than sports".  And for the great majority of Lehigh athletes, year-in and year-out, this is still true.

But this offseason we've seen an unprecedented number of Lehigh athletes trying their hand at 'pro' ball - and Lehigh fans everywhere couldn't be more thrilled or excited.  There are a lot of "pro" adventures to follow for Lehigh fans right now, and it's damned exciting stuff.

19 Days Until CCSU - No. 19, Ryan Pandy

Yes, it's a little late, but better late than never.  Only 19 days until opening day vs. Central Connecticut State, and in excitement is getting to be fever pitch.

Today At no. 26, we honor incoming freshman PK Ryan Pandy.
