I-AA Interactive Map update

Lots of love has been going into this project.. I've added:

* Team Icons on the map - now instead of pinpoints, they're the team logos!
* Added all the Patriot, Ivy, Atlantic 10, and MAAC Teams. I also added Monmouth of the NEC as that's the next conference I will tackle. That means I will have 10 of Lehigh's 11 opponents in the map already!
* When you click a Team Icon, you'll get the full team name, logo and league graphics, where they're located, stadium name, and capacity.
* If you switch to "satellite view", and zoom in all the way, you can really see (most) stadiums!

It shouldn't be hard to add more teams. Adding more functionality may be difficult, but I'm always looking for more interesting stuff. I encourage you to use it and to give me feedback through the comments section!

Chuck, every time i log onto your page, i get an error message regarding the google map. Something like "the map key used for this page was registered for another page."

where's the love for your PL brethren?

as much as I love that it looks like Fordham was the first NY Metro school you entered in, they now appear to be eclipsed on the clipboard by the others you added in (I can barely make out the Fordham logo there). Any chance of getting us back into the forefront?

And in all seriousness, this is very cool. Well done.

So starved for Lehigh football info this time of year but so little out there. If Lehigh could get past Colgate and Bucknell I would be happy with losses to Del and Harvard and wait for the big win against Lafayette.
First time commenting on the site but...did anyone hear about trouble on the lafayette football team with a "stabbing" incident?
The best games of the year (after Lafayette) will be Harvard in Boston. I will travel to that one.

Remembering Lehigh's Battles With The Late Tubby Raymond

(Photo Credits: Delaware Online)

When I heard the news Tubby Raymond, legendary Delaware head football coach, died last week at the age of 92, two immediate memories came rushing back to me.

One occurred on October 16th, 1999, when Tubby had made a complaint to the local paper or radio in the run-up to Kevin Higgins' Mountain Hawks beating his Blue Hens on Delaware's homecoming, 42-35.

I have no idea if the quote even actually happened, but my recollection is that Tubby said that Lehigh had "St. Bartholomew's" on their schedule, and hadn't played anybody.  It was a verbal jab that many Delaware fans took with them to the stands to heckle the Mountain Hawk fans that made the short trip to Newark.

Up until that point, I had watched a bunch of Lehigh football games over the years.  I experienced their rise in the 1990s.  I enjoyed wins, and championships, and playoff victories.

But never had I felt a win so viscerally vindicating than the one over Tubby Raymond&…

Lehigh Wrestling Gets Superstar Treatment at PPL Center. Lehigh Football Needs The Same At Murray Goodman.

"We knew it would be nice," Lehigh wrestling head coach Pat Santoro said. "But it was even better than we expected."

Pat was talking about the reception his Lehigh wrestling squad experienced at Allentown's PPL Center this weekend, when a sellout crowd over nearly 10,000 people came to watch No. 1 Penn State grapple with No. 5 Lehigh in a collegiate wrestling event.

It was, by all accounts, something special to behold. 

"I thought it was really cool and an exciting place to wrestle," said Penn State wrestler Nick Nevills. "These fans were really into it, a rowdy bunch. It's a lot more fun as an athlete to wrestle in an environment like this. I'd say it was one of the most exciting times I have had in my career."

The sense of spectacle at the PPL center, though, puts a spotlight on what more can be done at Lehigh itself to make their athletic contests into spectacles.  It requires money to be spent and energy to be expended.  But the…

Troy Pelletier Hasn't Stopped Outworking His Rivals On His Journey To Professional Football

Many Patriot League football fans remember the 153rd meeting between Lehigh and Lafayette, one that ended happily for the Mountain Hawks.

They might remember the MVP performance of QB Brad Mayes, or perhaps the halftime speech by OL Zach Duffy that seemed to spur the Mountain Hawks to victory.

Or perhaps they might remember the spectacular single play of Mayes rolling right and finding WR Gatlin Casey in the end zone to give the Mountain Hawks a lead they didn't relinquish.  It was an incredible play by Mayes, who returns this upcoming year for his senior season, and Casey, who, having exhausted his eligibility at Lehigh, will be playing one more year at Middle Tennessee State.

As great as those individual moments are, though, they are not my biggest takeaway of that game.

Too many Lehigh people forget that Lehigh was down 31-21 at half, and that victory was no sure thing.  And they sometimes forget that so much of that victory came from the grinding of WR Troy Pelletier, deliver…
