How To Catch Lehigh/Princeton If You're Not Seeing the Pope

Anything else happening today of note?

If you're not able to catch Lehigh/Princeton in person, whether due to the Pope being in town or just because you need to catch up on your wildflower collection, you can stream the game here from the Ivy League Digital Network.  Unfortunately, it is not a free service, like that of the Patriot League and NEC, so if you wish to enjoy the game this way, it will cost you a few bucks.

Ivy League Digital Network

If you're anything like me and are too cheap to spring for the $10 required, everyone's favorite radio call will be available here from Matt Kerr and Matt Markus will be reporting the pregame and sideline:

While waiting for Lehigh/Princeton to start, you can catch the first Patriot League conference game of the season, Colgate at Holy Cross:

It also may be on your local TV.  Check your local listings.  It doesn't appear to be on in the Lehigh Valley area, unfortunately.

A familiar foe for Lehigh fans, Monmouth, faces off against Fordham at 1PM:

Georgetown faces off against Columbia but it's behind the ILDN pay firewall:

Lafayette faces off against Wagner with a 6PM start, perhaps something to catch after Lehigh beats Princeton:

Other games that might be of interest to Lehigh fans that aren't happening simultaneously with Lehigh/Princeton:

Valparaiso, with former Lehigh offensive coordinator Dave Cecchini as lead guy, hosts Pioneer League heavyweight San Diego at 1:30 PM:

Notre Dame/UMass is on at 3:30 PM on NBC if you want to see what a true power FBS school can do to a school that should be competing in FCS.  (Also if you want to see a little vengance for 1998.)

San Diego State takes on Penn State at 3:30 PM on the Big 10 Network in another game whose final outcome should be well determined before Lehigh/Princeton's 5:00 PM kickoff.

Lehigh's Week 2 opponent, James Madison, takes on SMU in a potential FCS vs. FBS upset.  A win by the Dukes would certainly cement them nationally as a serious national championship contender.  That game will be on ESPN3 at 7:00 PM.

Another interesting game could be nationally-ranked Liberty vs. Southern Illinois, with the Flames trying to avoid a letdown after their big win last week vs. Montana.

Something interesting to watch while having Texas A&M/Arkansas on ESPN in the background.

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.

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".


Sandusky/Paterno Timeline Keeps Getting More Difficult To Ignore

The crimes committed by Gerald Sandusky continue to be a band-aid that is re-applied, and continuously ripped off, the arms of those of love Penn State.

Already convicted by a court of law, Sandusky has what is effectively a life sentence, while others who were in power at Penn State during the 1998 period where sex crimes were reported internally, Graham Spanier, Gary Schulz and Tim Curley, have still not faced any sort of trial and are still at-large today.

Last week, with an interesting sentence appearing deep in an insurance lawsuit involving a Sandusky victim settlement, the band-aid was once again ripped off.

The details of the lawsuit claim that Joe Paterno chose not to act in 1976 when one victim reported abuse by Sandusky, while Sarah Ganim, the hero reporter who broke the Sandusky story wide-open five years ago, added a second story of abuse in the 1970s where Paterno pressured one of Sandusky's victims over the phone in the 1971 to not press charges against him.
