CFB Week 10 Lehigh Football Viewing Guide

It's that time of the week where I share with you your weekly Lehigh fan viewing guide for Week 10 of the college football season.  Why go to website after website when all the information you need is right here?

If there was ever a week where you, dear Reader, needed this page, it's this week, since Lehigh has their bye week.

Fortunately for all of us (and, of course, I include myself in this), there are a boatload of important games available on live streams to watch this weekend.  Many, many of them are free.

It's worth popping open a Yuengling and getting the yard work done early.


I'm going to do this a bit different this week.

Noon: Bryant at Robert Morris, Bethune-Cookman at North Carolina Central (ESPN3)

Bryant or Robert Morris could be the NEC champions, and thus be a playoff team, while Bethune-Cookman is in the drivers' seat for the MEAC championship and will very likely be a playoff team.

12:30 PM: Stony Brook at Maine (FCS Central, check your local listings)

Maine is currently atop the CAA and will look to keep things rolling against Stony Brook, who is 3-4 and learning what it's like to play in the CAA.

1:00 PM: Fordham at Holy Cross, Bucknell at Georgetown (Patriot League Network)
1:00 PM: Lafayette at Georgetown (ESPN3)

All three games involving Lehigh's next three opponents are all on at once, at 1PM today.  If you have multiple computers, I'd consider streaming at least two at once.

3:30 PM: Villanova at James Madison (Comcast Sports Net Philadelphia, check local listings)

Worth keeping an eye on because it's probably a playoff game: the winner stays alive, and the lose falls out of the playoff race.

4:00 PM: Montana at Sacramento State (America One, free but subscription reqd)

Some don't feel this way, but I think this may very well be an elimination game, too.

4:00 PM: Battle of Piney Woods, Stephen F. Austin at Sam Houston State (ESPN3)

Involves one of the heavy hitters of the FCS, Sam Houston, but you want to watch this because with the Lumberjacks' and Bearkats' powerful offenses, it could be a 110 point game.

8:00 PM: Central Arkansas at Northwestern State (ESPN3)

The best of a weak evening of college football, I think the Demons might pull off an upset and help at-large teams across the country.

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.

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".


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.
