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.

Nick Shafnisky Is Pushing Hard to Get To Play at the Next Level in Football

"Don't take anything for granted, just keep pushing."
Those are the words of QB Nick Shafnisky, told to The Whitehall-Coplay Press all the way back in 2013, about his preparation as a high school athlete.
And they seem to summarize the Whitehall, PA native perfectly, then as now.
Dubbed the "Male Athlete of the Year" by that publication, the article goes on about Shaf's many exploits at Whitehall high school - leading the Zephyr football team to a co-Lehigh Valley Conference title, becoming the first player ever in that conference to rush and pass for over 1,000 yards, and earning the league's co-MVP award as well.
He also was a member of the Zephyrs playoff basketball team, and for good measure also helped set a record for the 4x100 relay team as well.
At Whitehall, and at Lehigh, coaches pushed him, but it was his own hard work that helped make him the best athlete he could be.
This weekend, Shaf, like every eligible college football player, will be …

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".


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.
