New Logo

Yes, I *did* just discover Print Shop - and in tune with's online makeover, I've decided to start the year with a brand-new logo on the top of the ol' blog. (That, and the fact that my header was cribbed from Lehigh's website, necessitated a change.)

Has everyone moseyed on over to and seen the changes? Although I will miss the overhead shot of Goodman (filled I might add), it's a really snazzy job and brings the site more up-to-date.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Like the new logo and yes, the new is improved. I've even signed up for the sports package they have with to listen to any Lehigh sports event, as well as watch a lot I cannot get to via the video streaming.
Heard at the Pitt wrestling match tonight that OL Coach Powers was let go. Supposedly a lot of discontent among a number of players who had met with Dr. Joe before Coen was hired.

Could you tell us the basis of the discontent??

Wasn't given any specifics as the info I received was second hand.

Was checking out the new and clicked on the roster noted some names missing that are either an editing mistake or they have left the team. One is Mike Murawinski who played some DE this past year and looked to me to be a starter next year with a lot of promise. The other is Soph. Andre Hall-a big WR from Springfield, PA, who in the spring game last year also looked promising for this coming year. Any word on either and whether we have any other MIA's? Somewhat troubling....

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.
