Big Games This Weekend

I'll keep posting information on recruiting on the thread below, but I want to mention to those of you out there that tomorrow's men's basketball game at Holy Cross (12:00PM) will be broadcast on ESPNU for those of you out there that get that. (I don't, so I'll be listening to the game on AM 1230/1320 in the Lehigh Valley instead.)

The men's basketball team (11-9, 4-2) will be playing a desperate Holy Cross team that is 10-9 and 1-5 in the Patriot League. Racked by injury, they are Dangerous with a capital D - not only that, their strong frontcourt matches up well against our strength in sophomore F Zahir Carrington and senior F Bryan White. It should be a great game.

Speaking of men's basketball, the Morning Call speculates - could there be a Lehigh vs. Lafayette final in the Patriot League tournament? A bit early for that speculation - but imagine that ticket if it were to happen? Imagine that tension in Kirby or Stabler? It would be a must-attend event.

What they didn't say that in women's basketball, a Lehigh vs. Lafayette final already happened in 1997 - which Lehigh (the sixth seed) won and then promptly got sent to UConn in the NCAA tournament! The 13-8 (5-1) Lady Hawks, who are sitting tied for 1st place with Army, want to keep the ball rolling with their balanced attack versus Holy Cross 11-10 (4-2) in what will be a litmus test to see if these Hawks, led by senior G Kaela Pearce (8.6 ppg, 3.8 rpg), can remain in the front of the Patriot League pack.

How To Get Lehigh Fans To Games, And Keep Them There?

You don't have to have attended more than twenty-five years of Lehigh football games to know it's a completely different world out there for your friendly neighborhood sports fan.

When Lehigh's Murray Goodman Stadium was opened in 1988, there were only about a dozen channels on the small, eighteen inch black and white TV we had in our dorm room.  Only two channels might have had "major college football" games on at the same time a Lehigh football game was being played live over the mountain.  (Notre Dame, the only school who had all their games televised, almost always played their games at 3:30 PM.)

Nowadays there's way more entertainment options on a typical college weekend than ever, and it's very logical to think that the increased amount of competition might not just keep students away from attending football games, but local fans as well.

It's not an issue confined to Lehigh - in 2014, home attendance at all FBS games dropped to their lowest le…

Fifteen Guys Who Might be Lehigh's Next Football Coach (and Five More)

If you've been following my Twitter account, you might have caught some "possibilities" as Lehigh's next head football coach like Lou Holtz, Brett Favre and Bo Pelini.  The chance that any of those three guys actually are offered and accept the Lehigh head coaching position are somewhere between zero and zero.  (The full list of my Twitter "possibilities" are all on this thread on the Lehigh Sports Forum.)

However the actual Lehigh head football coaching search is well underway, with real names and real possibilities.

I've come up with a list of fifteen possible names, some which I've heard whispered as candidates, others which might be good fits at Lehigh for a variety of reasons.

UPDATE: I have found five more names of possible head coaches that I am adding to this list below.

Who are the twenty people?  Here they are, in alphabetical order.

2018 Week 9, Bucknell: Tailgate Report, And How To Catch the Game

At Murray Goodman Stadium this weekend, two Patriot League teams will be looking for their second win and trying to end the 2018 season on a high note. 

Lehigh (1-7, 0-3 PL) takes on Bucknell (1-7, 1-2 PL) this week on "Heroes Day", where all first responders (military, fire, EMT, police) can pick up a game ticket free of charge at the Goodman Stadium Ticket Office.

If you can't make it to the game, you can catch the contest on TV on the Stadium Network via these over-the-air networks or watch the feed of that broadcast online through the Patriot League Network.  Matt Martucci, Ross Tucker and Marisa Pilla are the over-the-air broadcast team.

You can also catch the game on FOX AM 1230 and 1320, with Matt Kerr, Tom Fallon, Matt Markus and Mike Yadush on the call, with the most excellent Lehigh pregame show starting at 11:30 AM.  You can get it through your regular radio, listen to the broadcast streamed through TuneIn, or just simply going to the LVFoxSports.com webpage…
