CFB Week 8 Lehigh Fan Viewing Guide

It's that time of the week where I share with you your weekly Lehigh fan viewing guide for Week 8 of the college football season.  Why go to website after website when all the information you need is right here?

If you are not able to attend the game this weekend at Murray Goodman Stadium you can follow the game from the following sources:

TV:  Service Electric 2 (Lehigh Valley)

Online Streaming: Patriot League Network (free)

Radio:   ESPN Radio 1230 and 1320

Internet:  Lehighsports.com/ESPNLV.com

After the game, there are a boatload of important games, most which are available via live streams!


Saturday, October 19th:

12:00 PM EST, Colgate at Holy Cross
TV: CBS Sports Network
LFN Watch Level: Deep Crimson (Must-DVR)
Live Stats

Two teams, two upcoming league opponents to scout, a huge game.  Games don't get much more important to stick on the DVR.  (Or VCR, for that matter.)

12:00 PM EST, Fordham At Yale
Video Streaming at: Ivy League Digital Network ($$$)

LFN Watch Level: Eli Blue (Elevated)
Live Stats

This game could very well be Fordham's possible stumble in a remaining schedule that all looks like wins to the naked eye.  Can the Eli be the team that knocks the Rams out of the ranks of the unbeatens?

12:00 PM EST, Villanova At New Hampshire
TV: The Comcast Network (Philly)
Video Streaming at: UNHWildcats.TV ($$$)
LFN Watch Level: Dark Blue (Elevated)
Live Stats

12:30 PM EST, William and Mary at Maine
TV: Fox College Sports Atlantic
Video Streaming at: Stretch Internet ($$$?)
LFN Watch Level: Black (Elevated)
Live Stats

How many big games can there be to follow at once?   Both are worth watching and cranking up the secondary and teritiary DVRs since they has big Eastern ramifications.  A win by New Hampshire will help Lehigh on a national level.  A win by them and William and Mary would put the entire CAA conference race in a giant mess, something Lehigh would love to see.

1:00 PM EST, Lafayette At Harvard
Video Streaming at: Ivy League Digital Network ($$$)
LFN Watch Level: Burnt Orange (Scouting Potential)
Live Stats

If Lafayette will turn things around in time for league play, this game would be a fantastic place to begin.

1:30 PM EST, Bucknell At Dartmouth
Video Streaming at: Ivy League Digital Network ($$$)
LFN Watch Level: Orange (Scouting Potential)
Live Stats

The last of the Patriot League/Ivy League challenge games, and your only refuge for Patriot League sports late in the day after the earlier games.

3:00 PM EST,  North Dakota State At Southern Illinois
Video Streaming: ESPN3 (free if your local cable provider provides it)
LFN Watch LevelRed (Important Game)

A huge game in the Missouri Valley conference race - and maybe, just maybe, the game that finally knocks the Bison from the ranks of the unbeatens.  Also, the fact it's available on demand is huge.

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.  And again, the fact it's available on demand is huge.

3:30 PM EST,  Cal Poly At Montana
Video Streaming: America One (free)
LFN Watch LevelRed (Important Game)

A decent rivalry that's been brewing with two Big Sky teams that couldn't be more different.  Additionally, it's probably a playoff game for the Mustangs, who desperately need this game to stay in the playoff picture.  Deseparation could make for great football.

7:00 PM EST,  Sam Houston State At McNeese State
Video Streaming: ESPN3 (free if your local cable provider provides it)
LFN Watch LevelRed (Important Game)

Critical game.  Huge Southland Conference game that could determine which team takes the title.  Last year's national runner-up, and the surprise team that destroyed USF the first week of the season.  Awesome sauce.

Patriot League Commit Tracker, Class of 2022

(Photo Credit: Steve Hockstein/NJ Advance Media)

With this year's early signing period in December, along with traditional signing day in February and additional signing of recruits up until May, it felt like the right time to resurrect the Patriot League Commit Tracker for the class of 2022.

This is intended to be a rolling list, updated as we go, as student-athletes going to any Patriot League school sign National Letters of Intent.

We don't know the whole story yet behind each school's recruiting class.  But this post is intended to put in one place what we know so far.

As I learn more, I will add more names to each list.

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.

How The Ivy League Is Able To Break the NCAA's Scholarship Limits and Still Consider Themselves FCS

By now you've seen the results.  In 2018, the Ivy League has taken the FCS by storm.

Perhaps it was Penn's 30-10 defeat of Lehigh a couple of weeks ago.  Or maybe it was Princeton's 50-9 drubbing of another team that made the FCS Playoffs last year, Monmouth.  Or maybe it was Yale's shockingly dominant 35-14 win over nationally-ranked Maine last weekend.

The Ivy League has gone an astounding 12-4 so far in out-of-conference play, many of those wins coming against the Patriot League.

But it's not just against the Patriot League where the Ivy League has excelled. 

Every Ivy League school has at least one out-of-conference victory, which is remarkable since it is only three games into their football season. 

The four losses - Rhode Island over Harvard, Holy Cross over Yale, Delaware over Cornell, and Cal Poly over Brown - were either close losses that could have gone either way or expected blowouts of teams picked to be at the bottom of the Ivy League.

Why the Ivy Le…
