CFB Week 7 Lehigh Fan Viewing Guide

It's that time of the week where I share with you your weekly Lehigh fan viewing guide for Week 7 of the college football season.  Why go to website after website when all the information you need is right here?

Last week, I was so busy hyping up Lehigh/Fordham that I forget to post my weekly viewing guide.

As a result, Lehigh lost.

This is reason enough for my viewing guide to make a comeback.

If you are not able to attend you can follow the game from the following sources:

TV:  NBC Sports Network

Dish Network-Channel 159

Direct TV-Channel 220

Online Streaming: NBC Live Extra (free with subscription to NBC Sports Network)

Radio:   ESPN Radio 1230 and 1320

Internet:  Lehighsports.com/ESPNLV.com


Saturday, October 12th:

1:00 PM EST, Holy Cross At Bucknell
Video Streaming at: Patriot League Network (Free)
LFN Watch Level: Baby Blue (Elevated)

1:00 PM EST, Fordham At Georgetown
Video Streaming at: Georgetown Athletics ($$$?)

LFN Watch Level: Battleship Grey (Elevated)
Live Stats

These two games shouldn't be on your regular viewing list - you'll be watching or attending Lehigh/Columbia, of course - but just in case Lehigh doesn't get all cardiac on us, they'll be alternative viewing in case of a lopsided score.  Holy Cross/Bucknell is the second game that counts in the Patriot League standings.

1:00 PM EST, Lafayette At Princeton
Video Streaming at: ESPN3 (free if your local cable provider provides it)
LFN Watch Level: Burnt Orange (Scouting Potential)

On ESPN3 so also available on demand, this is perfect nighttime viewing to scout out the Leopards and compare them against a team Lehigh has already played.

2:50 PM EST, Missouri at Georgia
TV: ESPN
Video Streaming at: ESPN3 (free if your local cable provider provides it)
LFN Watch Level: Ochre (Stop What You're Doing and Watch)

Because why should the fourth quarter of this week's Georgia game be different than any of the others?

3:30 PM EST,  Coastal Carolina At Liberty
Video Streaming: ESPN3 (free if your local cable provider provides it)
LFN Watch Level: Red (Important Game)

As we get to some important national games on the schedule, this one sticks out as a critical, rivalry game in the Big South, available on ESPN3, that potentially has some ramifications in the Top 25 and maybe even the Big South conference title.  If nothing else this will be a fun backyard brawl against two programs that loathe each other, which will make this twice as fun.

4:00 PM EST,  Tennessee State At Jacksonville State
Video Streaming: OVC Digital Network (free)
LFN Watch LevelYellow (Elevated)

If Coastal/Liberty is a blowout, you could do a lot worse than catch this OVC game, a must-win for both teams in terms of their playoff hopes.  Tennessee State is a very intriguing team in particular, and if they can travel to Alabama and win this game they have a real shot ot challenge Eastern Illinois for the OVC title.

6:00 PM EST, Stony Brook at Colgate
Video Streaming at: Patriot League Network (free)

LFN Watch Level: Burnt Orange (Scouting Potential)

It's a must win for Colgate at 1-4, and a must win for Stony Brook at 2-3.  It's also the last chance the Patriot League has at a win over a CAA team in the FCS regular season, making it a no-brainer to watch for that alone.

7:00 PM EST,  Villanova at Towson
TV: NBC Sports Network
Video Streaming At: NBC Extra
LFN Watch Level: Blue-Orange (Elevated)

It doesn't get much better than No. 15 at No. 2, in a critical CAA battle that will shape that conference race.  Furthermore, a Villanova victory would have some extra beneficial effects on the Patriot League: it would give a little more heft to Fordham's 28-25 win over the Wildcats earlier in the season, lifting the schedule strength of the conference.

9:00 PM EST, Northern Arizona at Sacramento State
Video Streaming At: America One (free with subscription)
LFN Watch Level: Blue (Midnight special)

Admit it - you'll be up for this one.  May as well see if 21st-ranked Northern Arizona can stay in the Big Sky title hunt!  (Unless you like baseball.  Then, it will be baseball on the TV, this on the laptop!)

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…
