It's gameday, and it's time to BEAT LAFAYETTE!!!!

Should Lehigh win, they will give themselves the opportunity to be seeded - if the cards fall exactly right.

Below the flip, here's what to look for, should that happen.

To follow all the games live on your computer, you can go to the FCS Scoreboard here to follow the scores.  There are also links (most free) to audio and video of the games as well.)

In my opinion, Lehigh needs a win and to root for some combination of the following:

* Montana State beating Montana (so the Griz don't jump ahead of Lehigh in seeding)

* Illinois State beating Northern Iowa (to eliminate the Panthers from seeding consideration)

* New Hampshire beating Maine (to elimiate Maine from seeding consideration, and to bring up the 'quality' of Lehigh's early-season loss to them)

* Rhode Island beating Towson (to eliminate Towson from seeding consideration)

* Western Illinois beating North Dakota State (the Bison will still likely be seeded, but it may bring down the overall view of the Missouri Valley conference in the seeding process)

* Texas State beating Sam Houston State (the Bearkats will still likely be seeded, but it may bring into question Sam Houston's bona fides for a seed)

Tonight, we'll see.  But as I mentioned, none of this matters unless Lehigh BEATS LAFAYETTE!!!!!

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.

Sandusky/Paterno Timeline Keeps Getting More Difficult To Ignore

The crimes committed by Gerald Sandusky continue to be a band-aid that is re-applied, and continuously ripped off, the arms of those of love Penn State.

Already convicted by a court of law, Sandusky has what is effectively a life sentence, while others who were in power at Penn State during the 1998 period where sex crimes were reported internally, Graham Spanier, Gary Schulz and Tim Curley, have still not faced any sort of trial and are still at-large today.

Last week, with an interesting sentence appearing deep in an insurance lawsuit involving a Sandusky victim settlement, the band-aid was once again ripped off.

The details of the lawsuit claim that Joe Paterno chose not to act in 1976 when one victim reported abuse by Sandusky, while Sarah Ganim, the hero reporter who broke the Sandusky story wide-open five years ago, added a second story of abuse in the 1970s where Paterno pressured one of Sandusky's victims over the phone in the 1971 to not press charges against him.
