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.

Remembering Lehigh's Battles With The Late Tubby Raymond

(Photo Credits: Delaware Online)

When I heard the news Tubby Raymond, legendary Delaware head football coach, died last week at the age of 92, two immediate memories came rushing back to me.

One occurred on October 16th, 1999, when Tubby had made a complaint to the local paper or radio in the run-up to Kevin Higgins' Mountain Hawks beating his Blue Hens on Delaware's homecoming, 42-35.

I have no idea if the quote even actually happened, but my recollection is that Tubby said that Lehigh had "St. Bartholomew's" on their schedule, and hadn't played anybody.  It was a verbal jab that many Delaware fans took with them to the stands to heckle the Mountain Hawk fans that made the short trip to Newark.

Up until that point, I had watched a bunch of Lehigh football games over the years.  I experienced their rise in the 1990s.  I enjoyed wins, and championships, and playoff victories.

But never had I felt a win so viscerally vindicating than the one over Tubby Raymond&…

Lehigh Wrestling Gets Superstar Treatment at PPL Center. Lehigh Football Needs The Same At Murray Goodman.

"We knew it would be nice," Lehigh wrestling head coach Pat Santoro said. "But it was even better than we expected."

Pat was talking about the reception his Lehigh wrestling squad experienced at Allentown's PPL Center this weekend, when a sellout crowd over nearly 10,000 people came to watch No. 1 Penn State grapple with No. 5 Lehigh in a collegiate wrestling event.

It was, by all accounts, something special to behold. 

"I thought it was really cool and an exciting place to wrestle," said Penn State wrestler Nick Nevills. "These fans were really into it, a rowdy bunch. It's a lot more fun as an athlete to wrestle in an environment like this. I'd say it was one of the most exciting times I have had in my career."

The sense of spectacle at the PPL center, though, puts a spotlight on what more can be done at Lehigh itself to make their athletic contests into spectacles.  It requires money to be spent and energy to be expended.  But the…

What To Look For On Sunday For the FCS Playoff Pairings

Lehigh are the Patriot League Football Champs, and will be playing in the 1st round of the FCS playoffs.

The FCS Playoff Bracket is going to be revealed on ESPNU at 11:00AM on Sunday on a selection show.  The team will be watching the selections live at the Goosey Gander to find out who they will play, and where.

The chance that Lehigh will host a home playoff game appears to be very slim.  Though record is technically not in consideration for whether a team will host a first-round game, other considerations (the lack of lights, no Noon playoff starts) make it difficult if not impossible to host a playoff game at Murray Goodman unless temporary lights are brought in.

Being that's the case, it seems very likely that Lehigh will be playing somewhere on the road in the 1st round.  Below the flip, I will give the bracket predictions of the experts and three things I think you should watch for during the selection show.
