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.

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…
