2018 Bye Week TV Viewing Guide for Lehigh Fans

Are you like me - not all that sure of what to do this weekend now that there's no Lehigh football to watch?

Fortunately, there's loads of college football game to watch - there are games on Friday and Saturday to enjoy to scout out Lehigh's upcoming opponents - and they don't even impinge on College Football Gameday at Happy Valley, either.

Tonight at 6:00 PM Columbia takes on Princeton, Lehigh's opponent next week.

The game is being televised on ESPNU, and if you are subscribed to that you can watch that game (or the replay) on TV or on the WatchESPN App.

Tomorrow there are four games involving all of Lehigh's Patriot League competition.

At 1:00 PM Georgetown takes on Brown (streaming on ESPN+, subscription required), and Bucknell travels on Holy Cross (Patriot League Network, free).

At 6:00 PM Colgate takes on William and Mary (streaming on, free) and Central Connecticut State travels to Lafayette (Patriot League Network, free).

Other games of interest might be, oh, I don't know, perhaps, Ohio State at Penn State?  If you tune into College Football Gameday Saturday morning, you'll get a heaping dose of hype for that obviously big game on Saturday.

Other interesting FBS games happening this weekend are Army at Buffalo, Temple at Boston College, and, in the world of FCS, Villanova at Stony Brook.

I'd rather watch a WNBA game than Central Connecticut State vs. Lafayette. If they charge admission it can't possibly be more than $1.00.

LOL. But the Pards actually won a game they weren't supposed to win. In the words of the Allentown paper...they SHOCKED CCSU.

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.

Why the Ivy Le…

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 …
