How To Catch Lehigh/Yale (Broadcast Info), And Fearless Predictions

This weekend's Lehigh/Yale game, if you're not able to make it to New haven, will be available to be viewed onlint, but it will require a subscription and a fee to do it.

It's available to on the Ivy League Digital Network, and you can buy it on a school day-pass basis (Yale's is $9.95) or on a league-wide basis ($14.95 for a month).  If you can't make it to both new Haven or Cornell in October, the leagues' monthly pass is the best deal - plus you can take a sneak peek at some other Ivy League games against Patriot League opponents, too.

If you don't like shelling out the money (and believe me, I don't blame you), you can listen to the game for free on www.espnlv.com (or on the radio at AM 1230 and 1320 of the Lehigh Valley).  The reassuring voices of Matt Kerr and Matt Markus will be on the call.

Game time is 1:00 PM.

And I will also say that if you follow my Twitter feed (@LFN), I'll do my best to keep up with the action.


Here's the preview of this week's games from the Patriot League Network:

Patriot League Scoreboard

There is only one Patriot League football game that is not airing at the same time as Lehigh/Yale, but it might be a good one to catch anyway: it's Lafayette at William and Mary, another chance for a Patriot League tam to knock off a CAA foe.  Happily, that will be streamed live on the Patriot League Network and is free.

My picks for today's games:

Lehigh 35, Yale 27 (game breakdown and fearless prediction here)
Brown 35, Georgetown 10
Fordham 73, Columbia 3
Colgate 25, Cornell 22
Sacred Heart 28, Bucknell 17
William and Mary 37, Lafayette 6

Lehigh faces off against Cornell later in the season, and the Cornell/Colgate game will be streamed live on the Patriot League Network and is free.

Lehigh's next week opponent, Monmouth, plays at Duquesne and is available to stream on NEC Front Row and is free.  That game starts at noon today.

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.
