Incoming Patriot League Players In High School All-Star Games

(Photo Credit: Diane Cebula/The Hampton Roads Daily Press)

Tonight might be the official "kick-off" of Pennsylvania high school all-star games for 2010.  The 36th annual City All-Star Football Game, pitting the Public All-Stars against the Non-Public All Stars, is being played at the Linc this evening starting at 7:00PM.

There aren't any members of Lehigh's incoming class playing in this particular all-star game, but incoming Colgate freshman WR Siddiq Cornish will be playing for the public all-stars.

I thought it might be an interesting blog post to list all the members of Patriot League football classes of 2010 and what all-star games they are scheduled to play in. So here goes. (more)


(Before I get in a whole heap of trouble here: I would like everybody to note that this is a work-in-progress.  It's a daunting task to get information about all the all-star games around the fifty states!  Add a comment to this blog posting if I'm missing any incoming Patriot League player who has played in an all-star game this year, past or present.)

(Much thanks goes to Eastern PA Football, which gave me a huge starting point to all the roster information.)

(Also note: Rosters are subject to change, even up until the last moment!)

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.

Friday Water Cooler: Emma Watson, And Harvard Football

(Photo courtesy switched.com)

I'm sure this won't be appreciated by the latest famous freshman to attend an Ivy League school. No, no, I'm not talking about Brooke Shields, I'm talking about Emma Watson, the actress who is best known for her turn as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies.

We always knew there was something, well, different about kids who went to Harvard - a bit of an upturned nose, perhaps, annoying arrogance, or maybe even some Brahmin-ness while we're at it. Turns out, though, that some students were up to something more sinister: stalking Ms. Brown University at the Harvard/Brown game last weekend, as reported by the New York Post:

Page Six reported on Tuesday that the "Harry Potter" starlet and Brown University freshman looked "quite shaken" on Saturday as Harvard beat Brown 24-21 in Cambridge. Watson was reportedly flanked by security guards to protect her from gawkers. But her discomfort was actually the result of a t…
