October Surprise

This one doesn't involve anything political, this involves a very happy "October surprise" to report.

Your intrepid reporter forwarded a special 1-AA "gameday" diary of the Lehigh/Colgate game, and guess what? It's now on published on their website!!!

Fan Diary: Lehigh vs. Colgate

Please go on over there and enjoy!

Tomorrow, I'll give out game balls, press roundup, and all that stuff, but tonight I'm going to take a break! See you again tomorrow!

I just found this site and it is nice to see more about Lehigh Football. This site is really cool.

Thanks for joining us in the Hawks Nest last week it is usually a pretty exciting place to be.

With a game this big I felt the need to bring out the "dee-fense" chant early and often, I think most of our voices survived the entire game.

I was however disappointed in some of the parents in the Hawks Nest, they didn’t seem to know just how big this game was. Maybe their kids didn’t tell them what was at stake, or maybe the kids didn’t even know themselves. Every time I would turn around to try and get people excited to make noise for a big defensive stance they would look at me like I was nuts and continue sitting on their hands.

This is a great year for the big 3 sports at Lehigh with Basketball and Football competing for Patriot League Championships and Wrestling competing for a National Championship. What a great year to be a student at Lehigh!

Nick Shafnisky Is Pushing Hard to Get To Play at the Next Level in Football

"Don't take anything for granted, just keep pushing."
Those are the words of QB Nick Shafnisky, told to The Whitehall-Coplay Press all the way back in 2013, about his preparation as a high school athlete.
And they seem to summarize the Whitehall, PA native perfectly, then as now.
Dubbed the "Male Athlete of the Year" by that publication, the article goes on about Shaf's many exploits at Whitehall high school - leading the Zephyr football team to a co-Lehigh Valley Conference title, becoming the first player ever in that conference to rush and pass for over 1,000 yards, and earning the league's co-MVP award as well.
He also was a member of the Zephyrs playoff basketball team, and for good measure also helped set a record for the 4x100 relay team as well.
At Whitehall, and at Lehigh, coaches pushed him, but it was his own hard work that helped make him the best athlete he could be.
This weekend, Shaf, like every eligible college football player, will be …

What Are You Doing the Night of Lehigh's 2017 Home Opener?

I have this vision.

It's the weekend of the home opener at Murray Goodman Stadium, Labor Day weekend.  It could be a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.

And it's 6:00 PM.

In 2018, the Lehigh football team will open the season with a big celebration of the football program - at Navy, Lehigh's first game against an FBS team in over a decade.

In 2017, why not, as a one-off opportunity, try to have one Lehigh football game, the home opener, be the first-ever night game at Murray Goodman Stadium?

Will it cost money?  Yes.  Will it be easy?  Probably not.

However, is it doable?  I've got to believe the answer is "yes".

Seven Positive Thoughts About All the Patriot League Recruiting Classes

It's recruiting season.  Every incoming recruit is a Patriot League all-star, everyone is a first team all-American, everyone is undefeated.  It's all good times, a chance for kids to be admitted to some of the best Universities in the world.  In that, it's a win for everyone.

While we wait for each of the remaining recruits to be announced as a part of their recruiting classes, I thought I'd comb through all of the incoming classes of the Patriot League and tell you what sticks out to me.

This summart isn't a ratings-based system, than folks like 247Sports have in terms of measuring the number of "starred recruits" (they list Holy Cross as the "winner"), or even a hybrid-based system, like LFN's yearly Patsy Ratings (last seasons "winner": Lehigh) or HERO Sports' list of the top overall FCS recruits (which lists Lafayette as the "winner").  It's just one guy, looking at the recruit lists, and giving his opinion.
