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.

Fifteen Guys Who Might be Lehigh's Next Football Coach (and Five More)

If you've been following my Twitter account, you might have caught some "possibilities" as Lehigh's next head football coach like Lou Holtz, Brett Favre and Bo Pelini.  The chance that any of those three guys actually are offered and accept the Lehigh head coaching position are somewhere between zero and zero.  (The full list of my Twitter "possibilities" are all on this thread on the Lehigh Sports Forum.)

However the actual Lehigh head football coaching search is well underway, with real names and real possibilities.

I've come up with a list of fifteen possible names, some which I've heard whispered as candidates, others which might be good fits at Lehigh for a variety of reasons.

UPDATE: I have found five more names of possible head coaches that I am adding to this list below.

Who are the twenty people?  Here they are, in alphabetical order.

How The Ivy League Is Able To Break the NCAA's Scholarship Limits and Still Consider Themselves FCS

By now you've seen the results.  In 2018, the Ivy League has taken the FCS by storm.

Perhaps it was Penn's 30-10 defeat of Lehigh a couple of weeks ago.  Or maybe it was Princeton's 50-9 drubbing of another team that made the FCS Playoffs last year, Monmouth.  Or maybe it was Yale's shockingly dominant 35-14 win over nationally-ranked Maine last weekend.

The Ivy League has gone an astounding 12-4 so far in out-of-conference play, many of those wins coming against the Patriot League.

But it's not just against the Patriot League where the Ivy League has excelled. 

Every Ivy League school has at least one out-of-conference victory, which is remarkable since it is only three games into their football season. 

The four losses - Rhode Island over Harvard, Holy Cross over Yale, Delaware over Cornell, and Cal Poly over Brown - were either close losses that could have gone either way or expected blowouts of teams picked to be at the bottom of the Ivy League.

Remembering Andy Coen's Time As Head Coach As He Steps Down as Lehigh Football Head Coach To Address Health Issue

I read the announcement that head coach Andy Coen was stepping down as head football coach late Friday evening.

It was an announcement that I was expecting, to some degree. 

Those of use who have been following the program closely knew that something was amiss with Andy. 

And yet, the reason for him needing to step down was devastating.

"Life has thrown me a curveball," Coen said in the press release on Friday, December 7th, 2018. "I am in the early stages [of early onset Alzheimer's disease] and it is best for me to eliminate stress and concentrate on my health and well-being.  My wife, Laura, and my children, Molly, Nolan and Finn have supported me throughout my career and are my biggest fans.  This is a very difficult decision for all of us, but it is what is best at this time."

It was the gutting, pit-in-the-stomach diagnosis nobody wanted to be true.  Just like that, a bigger challenge than simply winning football games faces the man who has been heading …
