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.

Patriot League Commit Tracker, Class of 2022

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.

Remembering Lehigh's Battles With The Late Tubby Raymond

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…
