How Will I Watch Lehigh at Colgate This Afternoon?

Not headed to the the frozen tundra this afternoon to catch the Lehigh/Colgate rivalry?

OK.  I do sort-of understand.  My sled dogs are in the shop, too.  Besides, it is really tough on them to pull the smoker up to central New York when the temperature is 80 degrees. 

So how do you catch the game?

Never fear.  LFN's here.

Kickoff time at Andy Kerr Stadium in Hamilton, NY is 1:00PM.

The skinny:

TV: Check Local Listings
Internet: Patriot League Network or WatchStadium Twitter
Radio: ESPN Lehigh Valley 1160, 1230 and 1320, Audio Link here

The group that holds the broadcast rights of the game is a group called "Stadium".  "Stadium" is what Campus Insiders used to be last year, and they now produce broadcasts of specific Patriot League football games during the year.  Matt Martucci, a former Lehigh defensive end, is on the call, along with Andy Gresh providing analysis.

There are multiple ways to catch the broadcast.

Some areas have the game available via a web of local TV broadcast networks.  A full list is here.  Of interest to Lehigh fans, most notably the closest over-the-air broadcast of the came comes from channel WSWB 38-4 in Scranton/Wilkes Barre, which may also be available via your cable package.

Many major cities also have an over-the-air broadcast of the game, notably Pittsburgh, PA, Atlanta, GA, St. Louis, MO, Jacksonville, FL, Orlando, FL, Palm Beach, FL and Pensacola, FL.  Check the full list above to see if it's available where you live.

Where the game is not is Stadium TV's main channel, available on some cable systems.  This is a Patriot League Network game, not a Stadium TV game.  I mention this because they are not the same thing.  In the Lehigh Valley, the game will be on Channel 38-4, not Stadium TV.

If you are not watching the game on broadcast TV, you can still stream the game over the internet through a variety of ways - in a web browser on the Stadium's Patriot League Channel.  The link to the actual game is here, and it will also be available directly via @WatchStadium on Twitter.

If want to listen to the game on the radio, you can catch the Lehigh game feed online here, or you can listen on AM at three spots around the Lehigh Valley on the AM Dial: 1160, 1230 and 1320.  Matt Kerr, Steve Lomangino and Matt Markus are the radio crew.

As you may have heard, there are other college football games across the country.  A full information broadcast pack on every single game is here, which includes every video link, every broadcast team, and every Division I college football game, and yes, fans it includes TV and live stream information on the Penn State/Notre Dame game, too.

Finally, need to catch up on the full preview fun pack of today's game?

Remembering Lehigh's Battles With The Late Tubby Raymond

(Photo Credits: Delaware Online)

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…

What To Look For On Sunday For the FCS Playoff Pairings

Lehigh are the Patriot League Football Champs, and will be playing in the 1st round of the FCS playoffs.

The FCS Playoff Bracket is going to be revealed on ESPNU at 11:00AM on Sunday on a selection show.  The team will be watching the selections live at the Goosey Gander to find out who they will play, and where.

The chance that Lehigh will host a home playoff game appears to be very slim.  Though record is technically not in consideration for whether a team will host a first-round game, other considerations (the lack of lights, no Noon playoff starts) make it difficult if not impossible to host a playoff game at Murray Goodman unless temporary lights are brought in.

Being that's the case, it seems very likely that Lehigh will be playing somewhere on the road in the 1st round.  Below the flip, I will give the bracket predictions of the experts and three things I think you should watch for during the selection show.
