Sedale Front Page of NYT Sports Section

Senior QB Sedale Threatt is the subject of today's front page on the New York Times sports section in an article called, "Not Much More Than Name Links Threatt, Jr. To Father". It goes over a lot of the ground that has already been covered by Bill Doherty in his fantastic piece in the Lehigh Alumni magazine, but it gives enough new tidbits to be a good read. (Although I always thought Sedale was a finance major, not a marketing major.)

I'd encourage you to grab a copy of the paper today to read it (or log into the New York Times to read it, which you can do if you're a subscriber), but I will highlight the following:

Lehigh Coach Andy Coen said that Threatt still struggled with his consistency, but that his athletic ability had prompted interest from scouts.

“One scout told me that coming from the [FCS] level, what you have to do is dominate at your position,” said Threatt, who is majoring in marketing. “I can see the field pretty well, but I know they’re going to want me to do more.”

Coen said: “I give the kid a lot of credit for handling things the way he has. We have our weekly conversations, and I always leave with a smile on my face.”


Look for the Yale preview tomorrow.

Maybe he should be a stand-up comedian and forget his NFL dreams.

Comments like that come from classic losers. How many times have you subjected yourself to the criticism of the crowd on your work? Probably never even wore jock. Honor to the person who has the guts to stand in the arena and take the blows. Disgrace to those who hide anonymously and throw stones.

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…

What To Look For On Sunday For the FCS Playoff Pairings

Lehigh are the Patriot League Football Champs, and will be playing in the 1st round of the FCS playoffs.

The FCS Playoff Bracket is going to be revealed on ESPNU at 11:00AM on Sunday on a selection show.  The team will be watching the selections live at the Goosey Gander to find out who they will play, and where.

The chance that Lehigh will host a home playoff game appears to be very slim.  Though record is technically not in consideration for whether a team will host a first-round game, other considerations (the lack of lights, no Noon playoff starts) make it difficult if not impossible to host a playoff game at Murray Goodman unless temporary lights are brought in.

Being that's the case, it seems very likely that Lehigh will be playing somewhere on the road in the 1st round.  Below the flip, I will give the bracket predictions of the experts and three things I think you should watch for during the selection show.
