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.

Friday Water Cooler: Emma Watson, And Harvard Football

I'm sure this won't be appreciated by the latest famous freshman to attend an Ivy League school. No, no, I'm not talking about Brooke Shields, I'm talking about Emma Watson, the actress who is best known for her turn as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies.

We always knew there was something, well, different about kids who went to Harvard - a bit of an upturned nose, perhaps, annoying arrogance, or maybe even some Brahmin-ness while we're at it. Turns out, though, that some students were up to something more sinister: stalking Ms. Brown University at the Harvard/Brown game last weekend, as reported by the New York Post:

Page Six reported on Tuesday that the "Harry Potter" starlet and Brown University freshman looked "quite shaken" on Saturday as Harvard beat Brown 24-21 in Cambridge. Watson was reportedly flanked by security guards to protect her from gawkers. But her discomfort was actually the result of a t…

Assuming the Ivy Is Cancelling Out Of Conference Games, Here's How Patriot League Can Have 9 Game Season

The Patriot League could very well be in a huge bind assuming the Ivy League goes forward with their college football restart plans.
According to Mark Blaudschun of TMG Sports, the Ivy League is considering two plans for their 2020 college football season - neither of which allow for any out of conference games.
13 out-of-conference games involving Patriot League teams would be on the chopping block, and when you add to it the Patriot League presidents' guidance to not fly to games, every single member of the Patriot League is affected.  If you add to that the fact that the opening of the college football season is going to at best start in late September (yes, you read that correctly), the Patriot League would count as one of the most deeply affected by Covid-19-influenced delays and decisions in the entire college football landscape.
It is a bind to be sure - but not one that should see the Patriot League cancel the 2020 football season.
If we start with the assumption that the seas…
